Charitable Gambling

Senator Chamberlain talks about local charity

Pull tabs. Meat raffles. Bar bingo. We have all played these games before. They are a great way to pass the time at our favorite local establishments, but more importantly, they benefit important causes in our communities.It's also known as Charitable Gaming. These games are exclusively run by private non-profit orgs, like little league teams.What you might not know is that only a tiny, tiny sliver of the proceeds benefit the charities' missions. Aside from overhead expenses, most of the proceeds go to state taxes!That's not right. We're going to fix it.

Do you want Merrick to receive more of the proceeds from charitable gambling? Take a look at Sen. Chamberlain’s video.

A division of Merrick, Inc., charitable gambling includes pull-tabs, electronic pull-tabs, raffles, bingo, linked bingo, and the MN Tri Wheel all governed by the MN Gambling Control Board, the MN Department of Revenue, and local authorities. We currently are licensed to operate in more than twenty locations in the Twin Cities and the proceeds from these activities provide funding for our vocational and life enrichment programs. In the most recent reporting year we were the largest charitable gambling operation in the state based on gross receipts and we donate more than $350,000 each year to support our mission and other non-profit organizations in the communities in which we operate.
