Filling out the Application

*** An un-signed contract is the most common licensing hold up
Once you are in the application, here is a guide to assist the application process.
Ticket quantities setup
The LGCA application manages ticket quantities differently than our system. The details circled in GREEN are the exact same as the Funding Change platform. The details in RED are unique to the LGCA platform. It appears that the Gross Anticipated revenue detail is used to determine your licence (under or over 10K).
Please keep this in mind when adjusting your anticipated revenue here.
Sample Ticket / Order Form
Our Application Package will include the Draft Ticket which is uploaded as the Sample Ticket.
We have not been required to provide a Sample Order Form, and as such we have been uploading the Draft Ticket twice. Please upload the Draft ticket as the Sample Ticket, & as the Sample Order Form.
