for licensure.

      (3)

When the application is filed, the organization shall provide the department

with a copy of the executed lease, if applicable.

      (4)

All information requested by the department shall be submitted and reviewed

before a license may be granted.

      (5)

The department shall issue a license if the applicant possesses a regular

charitable gaming license and has met the requirements for licensure set forth

in KRS 238.505(8) and 238.545(4).

      (6)

The event shall not be advertised nor preregistrations taken until a license is

issued.

electronic fund transfer.

      (8)

Pursuant to its discretion under KRS 238.505(8), the department has determined that

charity game tickets, or pulltabs, shall not be an approved game of chance at a

charity fundraising event held by an exempt organization.

 

      Section

2. Special Limited Games Played at a Charity Fundraising Event. The department

shall grant approval to play special limited games at a charity fundraising

event if the information contained in the application and the totality of the

circumstances show that the event meets the requirements of KRS 238.545(4)(d).

 

      Section

      Section

4. Equipment Used for Events. (1) Poker tables, blackjack tables, prize wheels,

5. Expenses. (1) The organization shall pay the gaming expenses for the event

from the gaming account. All other expenses shall be paid from the general

account.

be prorated pursuant to the amount of gross receipts obtained from gaming and

nongaming events. The full amount shall be paid from the general account and
