Games

Required State License(s):

When a person has to provide something of value (for example, money or canned goods) to enter a game of chance (for example a drawing/raffle) to win a prize, that game of chance usually needs to be licensed by the Michigan Lottery Charitable Gaming Division.

For more information, go to www.michigan.gov/cg or call the Michigan Lottery Charitable Gaming Division at (517) 335-5780.

Further Information:

A state license is not required for pinball machines, video games, or crane games; however, most cities do license these type games.  Contact the city clerk's office for further information.
