How do I destroy games?

Bingo paper

If you want to destroy bingo paper, call us at 651-297-1772 for options on how to deliver the bingo paper to the Department of Revenue.

Barcoded games

If you have a pull-tab, tipboard, paddleticket, or raffle board game that you do not want to put into play, or a damaged game that you cannot put into play, contact your distributor to see if you can get credit for the cost of the game and/or tax paid on the game.

If you cannot get credit for the game, contact us and we will direct you to either destroy the game or send the game to us to destroy.

If you destroy an unplayed game without our approval, we will treat it as a missing game. You must report the game on your next monthly return at the ideal amount and pay any tax liability due.

Games destroyed by a catastrophic event

If unplayed games, games in play, and/or played game remnants are destroyed by a catastrophic event (e.g., fire, flood, tornado, etc.), call us for instructions.
