Apply for a bingo licence

Lottery rules have recently changed. See cbs.sa.gov.au for more information.

You can only apply for a bingo licence if you're 18 years or older, and acting on behalf of an organisation.

Make sure you attach all the relevant supporting evidence - what you'll need.

Lodge the application at least 14 days before the lottery begins.

Fee: $9.75

What you'll need

In addition to the fee, your application must include:

  • details of any other organisation which will benefit from the bingo session(s)
  • any outstanding financial statements, including an auditor’s report for any gross annual proceeds period exceeding $50,000.

Unincorporated organisations applying for the first time must also include:

  • a copy of the organisation’s constitution
  • names and addresses of management committee members
  • the number of financial members.

What happens next

Consumer and Business Services (CBS) will contact you when your licence is approved.

Your application can be refused if:

  • the prizes include prohibited goods or services
  • any gift, reward or benefit related to the lottery includes prohibited goods or services.

Change, cancel or surrender a licence

You must submit a written request to CBS to change the days, times or venues of a session at least 14 days before the session begins.

You must get approval from CBS to cancel, suspend or surrender a bingo licence.
