INFORMATION ON RAFFLES & BINGO

Any organization that wants to conduct a basket auction, 50/50, designer bag bingo, or any other kind of raffle must be licensed.  The organization must be licensed by the state of New Jersey to conduct games and then a separate license is required for each game to be held from the municipality where the games will be conducted.  For more information on obtaining a license from the state, you can go to the Legalized Games of Chance Control Commission website. Once you have your gaming license, contact the Municipal Clerk to obtain a license for the individual games to be held.  Paperwork for a raffle/bingo license must be received a month before your scheduled event.  Contact the Municipal Clerk at 856-931-1546 or via email at boroclerk@mountephraim-nj.com.
