How old do you have to be to play Bingo?
Section 2001.418 of the Bingo Enabling Act states:"An individual younger than 18 years of age may not play bingo conducted under a license issued under this chapter unless the individual is accompanied by the individual's parent or guardian. A license holder may prohibit all individuals younger than 18 years of age, as determined by the license holder, from entering the license premises by posting a written notice to that effect at the premises."

All complaints must be submitted in writing. The person filing the complaint must include his/her name, mailing address and contact phone number. You can:

Can our employees play bingo at our upcoming party? Can we play safety bingo at work? Can we play bingo at our family reunion?
The Bingo Enabling Act allows nonprofit organizations that hold a 501c exemption from the IRS and obtain a license to conduct bingo to raise funds for charitable purposes. The only exemptions to this license requirement are for patients in VA and other hospitals, nursing home residents, and certain senior citizen groups and activities. The Bingo Enabling Act does allow individuals to play in the privacy of their homes if the number of individuals playing does not exceed 15. See Section 2001.551 of the Bingo Enabling Act for further information.
