Obtain a social game permit

Service
The City’s social game permit program regulates the operators of social games, restricting location, age, dollar amount of play, and other rules to protect the public peace, safety and morals. A person or business that wants to operate a social game must have a permit from the City.

A social game is a game, other than a lottery, between players in a private business, private club or place of public accommodation where no house player, house bank or house odds exist and there is no house income from the operation of the social game. To start the permitting process, send us an email.

The annual permit fee is $500 per location.
