Freezing Pull-Tab Games
AS 05.15.187(d) states a pull-tab game may not be withdrawn from sale until all pull-tabs in the game are sold. Furthermore, the term ‘freezing’ is not referenced or defined in charitable gaming statute or regulation, and appears to be a variation of operating a pull-tab game. Therefore, as long as a person is actively playing a game and is physically present, freezing is permissible. However, a game may not be frozen overnight or if the person leaves the premises. Lastly, strong house rules should be in place before this practice is implemented.


The Alaska Gaming Reform Act (Act) found at Title 5 Chapter 15 of the Alaska Statutes governs Alaska’s Charitable Gaming Program. The Act defines who may conduct gaming activities and what activities are permissible. Title 16 Chapter 160 of the Alaska Administrative Code (regulation) implements the Act.

The Division issues permits and licenses, collects taxes and fees, and reviews gaming activities for compliance.

PERMISSIBLE GAMING ACTIVITIES INCLUDE :
  • Raffle/Lottery
  • Bingo
  • Pull-Tabs
