NOTICE: Cannabis Cannot be a Prize
We've updated our terms and conditions for Monte Carlo licensees. These now specify that cannabis cannot be given as a prize for licensed Monte Carlo events. Please download the new Monte Carlo terms and conditions.
Monte Carlo is a charitable gaming event, often called a “casino night”, where participants can play blackjack and wheel of fortune games. These events are generally used as entertainment in conjunction with another event. There is a limit of four blackjack tables and there can be any number of wheel of fortune games at the event.
Only charitable and religious organizations can hold a Monte Carlo event. The LGCA licenses these types of organizations to conduct Monte Carlo events in accordance with Section 207(1)(b) of the Criminal Code (Canada). If your organization has never been licensed, you must submit background information about your organization to determine your eligibility.
Terms and Conditions
Organizations holding Monte Carlo events must comply with the terms and conditions set by the LGCA.
The LGCA conducts background investigations on all applications as part of the licensing process. Failing to disclose complete and relevant information in the application form will result in a more detailed investigation, longer processing time, and the possible denial of a licence. You cannot advertise your Monte Carlo event until your licence is approved.
The licence fee is $5 per game per day and the fee must be submitted with your application.
