Organization Star Rating Reports

Beginning with fiscal year 2010, the Board publishes a five-star rating report.  Each licensed organization is evaluated by the Gambling Control Board to determine a rating based on the percentage of its annual gross profits spent on lawful purpose expenditures (LPE).


Lawful purpose expenditures include charitable contributions, payments to local units of government, lawful gambling taxes, and building expenses related to veteran and fraternal organizations.


Organizations are evaluated according to the following criteria.


% Spent LPE              Rating

more than 50%........5 star

more than 40%........4 star

more than 30%........3 star

more than 20%........2 star

less than 20%...........1 star
