Ohio

ASG’s Ohio program helps licensed 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organizations capitalize on legislation that allows local businesses to sell pull tabs (instant bingo tickets) on behalf of the not-for-profit organization, and for the business to get reimbursed up to 6% of the gross revenue/sales of the tickets. The Ohio program brings together charities and businesses, and in keeping with the ASG philosophy, makes it easy for both to make money. 

Any 501(c)(3) organization that has been in existence for more than 2 years and applies for and receives a bingo license, can benefit from the ASG Ohio program.  Any business in Ohio can benefit from the ASG program.  Some of our most successful businesses in the program are convenience stores, gas stations, bars, restaurants, bowling alleys, and anywhere that sells Ohio lottery tickets.

WELCOME CHARITIES

Welcome to All-Star Gaming (ASG), a licensed charitable gaming distributor in Ohio.  All-Star Gaming is a full service program that helps nonprofit organizations that hold a Type III Charitable Bingo License address the complexities of charitable gaming accounting and regulatory requirements in Ohio. Additionally, we provide a convenient service that locates businesses that wish to sell instant bingo tickets on behalf of local charities.

Our unique program is designed specifically for nonprofit organizations that want to benefit from charitable gaming, but do not necessarily have the resources to locate businesses to sell instant bingo tickets on their behalf and/or to manage the day to day accounting and treasury responsibilities required by the regulations.   

Through our partnerships with the CPA Firm of JC & Company and a select group of members of the Ohio Coin Machine Association, a statewide organization that provides the vending equipment (i.e., pool tables, darts, jukeboxes, etc.) to many of the state’s hospitality businesses including, but not limit to, bars, taverns and restaurants, we are able to extend these partnerships to charities that may otherwise not have resources to benefit under charitable gaming laws.  Nonprofit organizations that hold a Type III Charitable Bingo license and who wish to maximize fundraising opportunities will greatly benefit by ASG’s program. 

Customers contract directly with JC & Company, and for a small monthly fee, they will handle the accounting and regulatory transactions that allow nonprofits to extend their fundraising efforts without adding additional volunteer resources. JC & Company ensures payment for product is made to ASG and the 6% reimbursement of expenses is paid to businesses on your organization’s behalf.

Get started now with All-Star Gaming by calling us today! Our ASG Sales Reps will walk you through the process and help identify locations in your area that are ready to fundraise on your behalf!

FAQs for Businesses

How do I make money? 

You are reimbursed for expenses up to 6% of the Gross Receipts of a game. Reimbursable expenses include such things as accounting services, rent, property taxes, and advertising, to name a few.

What does it cost me?

There are no fees to the location for selling pull tabs. You do pay the profit up front to the charity, by credit card. Prizes are paid out from what is collected from selling the pull tab tickets.

Do I need a license?

There is a license requirement that the charity obtains for you to sell at your location. You fill out a few forms, and the charity submits those with their own information and obtains the license for you to sell pull tabs on their behalf. ASG will walk you through every step of the process.

Is this legal?

Absolutely. Ohio HB 386, passed in the spring 2012, makes it legal to receive up to 6% of game gross receipts.

What’s in it for me?

All prizes must be redeemed the same day at the place the tickets were purchased. This means more money for your customers to spend in your location and bigger tips for your wait staff!

Can you really make money selling pull tabs?

Recently passed legislation (HB 386) allows businesses like yours to become licensed and sell instant bingo tickets (pull tabs) for local charities. For selling these tickets, you make up to 6% of the Gross Sales/Revenue. For example, sell 2 boxes per week and make up to $18,720 per year; sell 3 boxes per week and make up to $28,080 per year! That’s additional cash in your pocket or to reinvest in your establishment! Compare these numbers to lottery profits!
