Gambling, Raffles, and Games of Chance

Unlawful gambling is strictly prohibited on Baylor’s campus. Unlawful gambling is defined as “unlawfully conducting, organizing, or participating in an activity involving a game of chance, including but not limited to, casino or sports wagering.” Unlawful gambling includes any activities or games of chance that include the exchange of cash resulting in a chance of a financial return greater than that paid.  Raffles, the awarding of one or more prizes by chance to someone who paid or promised something of value for a ticket that represents a chance to win a prize, are prohibited as well.

Internal mock casino and/or gambling events may be permitted by the Department of Student Activities in circumstances in which no cash changes hands or may be won by participants.
