Minor gaming is gaming where the proceeds are used for a not-for-profit organisation or for charitable reasons (such as education, welfare, sport and recreation), and not for the private gain or benefit of any person, except by way of charity.
The Tasmanian Gaming Commission has authorised a number of games including bingo, raffles, lucky envelopes and Tassie’s best punter as minor gaming.
You must be 18 years old and a responsible person to hold a minor gaming permit.

Once you have a permit, you need to notify the Commission at least seven days before conducting a game of your intention to conduct it. You must not conduct a game unless you have notified the Commission.
The Commission may declare a game to be an “exempt game”. Exempt games do not require a minor gaming permit. Under some circumstances, tipping competitions, raffles, sweepstakes and Anzac Day two-up are exempt games.
