Bet on This: Games of Chance in Pennsylvania Community Associations

Welcome to this episode of Community Matters podcast, where we discuss issues important to managing and governing condos, cooperatives and homeowner associations.

Community associations often get creative in programming activities for homeowners. Sometimes these activities may involve games of chance like raffles, lotteries, drawings and 50/50s. But these games are considered gambling, and state regulations do apply. We’ll discuss these games of chance and how community associations can become licensed to host such events with Paula Haurie, a former member of the board of Traditions of America at Hanover, located in located in Bethlehem, PA. Information contained in this podcast is specific to community associations in Pennsylvania. Listeners from other states should check with your state for applicable laws and regulations.
