Bingo Hall Licence

​Charitable organizations licensed to participate in pooling bingo receive lottery proceeds from regular bingo events that are pooled by licensed charitable organizations at a registered bingo hall/centre in order to equally share the proceeds.

The Municipality of Chatham-Kent currently has two pooling bingo halls - Wallaceburg Hometown Bingo and Riverview Gaming Centre. The following information pertains to clubs conducting bingos at either of these halls.

Your organization must be eligible to manage and conduct lottery events. Find out what is required on the Lottery Licence page.
