    Is there a way to enter without purchase? If not, any game in with the only way to get an entry is to make a purchase is a raffle, and is illegal. From the MA Atty Gen’l website, which I suggest you visit:

    Q: Who may conduct gaming events such as raffles, casino or Las Vegas nights, or poker tournaments?

    A: Gaming events such as raffles, casino or Las Vegas nights, or poker tournaments may only be conducted by a non-profit organization (whether or not incorporated) that has been organized and actively functioning in Massachusetts for at least two years and is one of the following:

    Veterans’ organization chartered by Congress;
    Church or religious organization;
    Fraternal or fraternal benefit society, such as an Elks Club or union:
    Educational or charitable organization;
    Civic or service club; or
    Other club or organization operated exclusively for nonprofit purposes.
    These groups are qualified nonprofit organization and represent limited exceptions to the general law prohibiting gambling in the Commonwealth.

    I will check your site again Wed 5/9, and if changes have not been made I will report this to the Atty Gen’l.

    I am part of a group that watches the internet for illegal raffles. We try first to contact and educate the promoters, but where no change is made, we contact authorities. Raffle laws protect and reserve this income source for charity.

    Honestly, I would have expected a business of this size and experience to more aware of the laws.

    Hi Anonymous!

    This is an in-store gift-with-purchase giveaway event – which we often have, as referenced here on our website, and not a raffle. It is a gift to our customers who stop by our freestanding store. We will not prevent a customer from coming to the store and just asking for an envelope.

    If you would like to discuss the matter further, I invite you to email me directly at mfleming@yarn.com or call my extension.

    Best,

    Marykate

    Your original description “Shop in the store, and when you check out, you’ll receive a sealed envelope …” does not mention that envelopes can be requested without purchase. Even though the envelopes themselves are not “sold” as tickets, requiring a purchase to gain an entry still constitutes a raffle. As long as there is a free method of entry, it is not a raffle. Thanks for clearing that up, and perhaps you should remember to make that statement in your original announcements. Sorry to have to be anonymous, but we’ve had members threatened before, though I know you would not do that.
