Provisions for Military Service Members, Veterans, and Spouses

The Charitable Bingo Operations Division of the Texas Lottery Commission is pleased to assist Military Service Members, Military Veterans, and Military Spouses in obtaining Charitable Bingo bingo-related licenses and worker registrations in accordance with Chapters 55 and 2001 of the Texas Occupations Code.

Military Service Members or Military Veterans applying in their individual capacity for: (1) a commercial lessor license; (2) a distributor license; (3) a manufacturer license; (4) a unit manager license; OR (5) listing on the bingo worker registry, are exempt from the respective license or registry fee.

Military Spouses applying in their individual capacity for: (1) a commercial lessor license; (2) a distributor license; (3) a manufacturer license; (4) a unit manager license; OR (5) listing on the bingo worker registry, are exempt from the respective license or registry fee if the Military Spouse holds a current license issued by another state or jurisdiction that is substantially equivalent to the license or worker registry for which the Military Spouse is now applying.

A Military Service Members, Military Veterans, or Military Spouses form is available in the Applicants sections of our website.  This form explains which individuals qualify as Military Service Members, Military Veterans, and Military Spouses, defines the various individuals and details the necessary documentation needed for exemption of fees.

Additional information and provisions regarding Military Service Members, Military Veterans, and Military Spouses licenses and registrations will be included in an upcoming Charitable Bingo Administrative Rule.

Thanks to all the current and former members of the military, and their families, for their service and sacrifices.
