To legally conduct any gambling activity or “game of chance” in Massachusetts, including raffles, bazaars, and “Las Vegas Night” events, an organization must obtain a permit from the clerk of the city or town in which the event will take place. Applications must be filed at least thirty days prior to the event, and are accepted only from organizations legally recognized as not-for-profit that have been actively functioning in the state for at least two years.

Permits are valid for one year from the date of issue, and require that the holder maintain accurate records and file a tax return with the state lottery commission within ten days after the event, and pay a tax of 5% of the gaming event gross proceeds.
