Raffles are Wisconsin's favorite and most profitable form of grassroots fund-raising. Well over 7,500 groups are licensed to conduct raffles and net profits from this activity have remained steady at nearly 60%. After paying a $25 license fee, qualified organizations may conduct up to 200 raffle drawings during a one year period.

If you would like license renewal information, forms or rules and regulations, please see below.
Certain raffle licenses may be renewed on-line. To file your raffle renewal and report online, you must have your current raffle license number and your organization must meet all of the following criteria:
The total number of raffles conducted must not exceed 200;
The total dollar amount of reported gross receipts must not exceed $50,000; and
The raffle license will expire within the next 60 days or has expired within the last 30 days.
Payment will be made by credit card and processed through our e-payment system.
If your organization does not meet the above criteria or you do not have a credit card that can be used for the on-line renewal process, you must file your report and renewal by mail, as has been done in the past.
The on-line renewal feature is not a means for checking the status of a raffle license. The information contained therein is protected to avoid identity theft.
