I am the Executive Director of a religious non-profit in Texas,

This answer was rated:

I am the Executive Director of a religious non-profit in Texas, and I am wanting to do a fundraiser whereby individuals make a donation of $25 in order to be entered into a football picks competition. Each person picks the winner of all games each week, and at the end of the season, the person/people with the most wins receives a cash prize. Half of the $25 will be kept for our organization, and half will go into the prize pool. Is this a legal activity?

Attorney Arcadier :

In Texas this is an illegal form of Gambling and not permitted.
