Gambling permit

We approve gambling permits for unorganized areas of the county such as Fort Snelling. An organization may conduct lawful gambling if:

  • It has a premise permit and license to conduct lawful gambling.
  • The initial premises permit was received and approved by either the city council or the county board in which the organization’s premises will be located.
  • The permit and license were reviewed, approved and issued by the Minnesota Gambling Control Board.
