A major bingo licence is required by Associations to conduct fundraiser bingo sessions. This covers the forms of the game known as Housie or Housie Housie, played by the method commonly known as 'eyes down'. A licence is required when the gross proceeds derived from a session exceed $500.
If the gross proceeds derived are less than $500 from a session no licence is required. However, the lottery must be conducted in accordance with the minor bingo lottery conditions.
A licence defines the need to obtain recognition / certification and registration to undertake a certain business activity.
Only constituted associations can conduct fundraiser bingo sessions. A bingo session may only be conducted to raise funds for an approved purpose.
