A raffle is a game of chance where raffle tickets are sold, a winner(s) is determined by randomly drawing a ticket stub from a container, and a prize is awarded. Most raffles require a license.

Lake Michigan College (the College) requires any part of the College that holds a raffle comply fully with the Acts, Rules, and Directives of the Michigan Gaming Control Board (MCGD). This information can be found on the MCGD website.

Each raffle requires designation of a Principal Officer, whose duties include responsibility for ensuring that the raffle is conducted in accordance with the act, rules, and directives of the MCGD.

It is the responsibility of the sponsoring unit’s designated Principal Officer for ensuring compliance.
