Raffle License

The Winnebago County Clerk’s office issues raffle licenses for raffles that will be conducted only in the County of Winnebago, Illinois, including any of the cities, villages and unincorporated areas, with the exception of the Village of Durand, Illinois.

A raffle is a form of gambling similar to a lottery where a player pays for a chance to win and must be conducted by an organization licensed under the Winnebago County Raffle Ordinance. Only not-for-profit organizations that have been in existence for 5 years or more are eligible to have a raffle.

Raffle Application packets are available at our office, online (link is below), or may be mailed (call 815-319-4250 to request a packet via mail).
