AS 05.15.188. Pull-Tab Sales By Vendors On Behalf of Permittees; Vendor Registration.

(a) A permittee may contract with a vendor to sell pull-tabs on behalf of the permittee, if the permittee first registers the vendor with the department by applying for registration on a form prescribed by the department and by submitting the registration fee of $50 for each location at which the vendor will sell pull-tabs.

(b) Upon approval of the vendor registration, the department shall issue an endorsement to the permittee's permit that authorizes the conduct of pull-tab sales at that vendor location.

(c) The endorsement issued under (b) of this section is an extension of the permittee's privilege under AS 05.15.100 to conduct pull-tab sales in this state. A vendor may not sell a pull-tab series until a copy of the permit containing the endorsement for the new vendor location has been posted by the permittee in the registered vendor establishment. The endorsed permit must be clearly visible to the gaming public.

(d) A separate endorsement shall be issued for each vendor location. The permittee shall inform the department when a vendor with whom the permittee is contracting changes the physical location at which pull-tabs are sold, and shall return to the department all copies of a permit endorsed to a vendor that is no longer selling pull-tabs on behalf of the permittee. Failure to inform the department of a change in vendor location, or to return the endorsed copies of a permit to the department after a vendor change, may constitute grounds for the suspension or revocation of a permittee's permit.

(e) At the time that a permittee annually renews its permit, it shall also renew the registration of all locations where a vendor is selling pull-tabs on the permittee's behalf and shall pay a registration fee of $50 for each vendor location.

(f) A permittee that uses a vendor to sell pull-tabs on its behalf shall enter into a written contract with that vendor. The department may inspect this contract. If the contract contains provisions that violate this chapter or the regulations adopted under it, the department may declare the contract void, and may suspend or revoke the registration of the vendor and the permit of the permittee.

(g) A person, other than a permittee's member-in-charge, may not directly supply a pull-tab series to a registered vendor for sale by that vendor on behalf of the permittee.

(h) If a permittee contracts with a vendor under (a) of this section, the contract must provide that the permittee shall receive no less than 70 percent of the ideal net.

(i) An amount equal to the ideal net less the compensation owed to the vendor shall be paid by the vendor to the member-in-charge upon delivery of a pull-tab series to the vendor for sale. The amount required to be paid by the vendor shall be paid by check and the check may not be drawn in a manner that the payee is not identified.

(j) An operator may not contract with or use a vendor to sell pull-tabs.

(k) A permittee may not contract with more than five vendors under this section.
