- Be registered with the secretary of state; and
- Have 3 years' continuous existence or, beginning in 2024, have a different period of continuous existence if the general assembly establishes that different period by statute; and
- Allowing charitable games to be managed or operated by persons other than unpaid volunteers who are bona fide members of the organization, so long as those persons are not paid more than minimum wage.
