FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) -- While attendance declines at Indiana's riverboat casinos and bingo halls begin to disappear, fraternal lodges are picking up the slack.
The Journal Gazette reports lodges have begun offering games like poker, roulette and blackjack with proceeds going to charity.
That's especially true in Allen County, where clubs made more gross receipts off charity casino games than any other county in the state during the fiscal year that ended June 30, 2012.
Fraternal organizations and veterans clubs that obtain an "annual charity game night license" can operate casino games three days a week. Clubs are restricted to using volunteers to run the games and can be open only at certain times during the day. They cannot be open more than two consecutive days.
