    Default Setting Up A Raffle

    I would like to raffle off my van to raise money for a debt at $100 a ticket. I will need a MINIMUM of 61 tickets. What do I need to be aware of from a business/legal standpoint?

    Default Re: Raffle Question

    State law varies. In most states you would need a special license, the issuance of which may be reserved for charities and nonprofits. Running an illegal lottery or raffle is usually a criminal offense.
