Support for Electronic pull-tab devices Petition

Lancaster Bingo Company expresses its support for this Petition.  The current regulation allows for only 5 devices at those locations known as Social Quarters and this works well for those locations with a relatively small membership.  However, at a location with a much larger membership, limiting it to 5 devices also limits the location from being able to adequately provide this gaming opportunity to its members and consequently results in a loss of potential revenue to the organization.

Lancaster Bingo Company supports the petition and the regulatory change to allow up to 9 devices at a social quarters location if the location has a sufficient occupancy limit to accommodate more than 150 occupants.  This regulatory change still provides a limit on the number of devices permitted but allows a larger location to add additional devices to accomodate its membership. 

Lancaster Bingo Company supports this petition and believes this change will be positive for these qualified charitable gaming locations and their members.
