Any student organization requesting to host a gambling tournament or raffle must contact the Office of Student Engagement to receive guidance on completing a Charitable Gambling Application through the State of Michigan’s Bureau of the State Lottery. The student organization must submit the application to the Bureau of the State Lottery with appropriate application fees, along with the organization’s constitution, and a signed letter from the dean of students. It will take approximately 4–6 weeks for the Bureau of the State Lottery to approve any application. Visit for more information. (The Bureau of the State Lottery does not allow education subordinate organizations to raffle prizes over $500. Therefore, there is no need to complete the Millionaire Party application to obtain a license.)
