Regular & Special (Monster) Bingo
Bingo events are lottery schemes where players purchase bingo paper and win prizes by being the first to complete specified arrangements or patterns of numbers on the bingo paper from numbers selected at random.
Regular bingo events have prize boards of $5,500 and under, and Special (Monster) bingo events have prize boards over $5,500.
Only the Registrar of Alcohol and Gaming may issue a licence to an eligible charitable or religious organization for the following:
- Bingo events where the total value of the prizes to be awarded at any one occasion exceeds $5,500;
- Bingo events conducted in an unorganized territory;
- Bingo events conducted on Federal land such as Canadian Forces Bases; and
- Bingo events where the event is to be conducted in conjunction with another licensed lottery event.
A municipality may issue a licence to an eligible charitable or religious organization for regular bingo events where the total value of the prizes to be awarded on any one occasion does not exceed $5,500.
If you are applying for a municipal licence, contact the local municipality where you intend to hold the event for more detailed information on the application process, licensing fees and required attachments.
