The Office of Charitable and Regulatory Programs (OCRP) is responsible for administering the Fantasy Contests Act in the Commonwealth. Every person or entity that offers fantasy contests for a cash prize to members of the public is required to register with OCRP prior to operating any contest in accordance with Virginia’s Fantasy Contests Act.
Effective July 1, 2019, the annual registration fee will be $8,300 for initial and renewal registrants. This office is currently accepting early applications with the new fee amount from fantasy contest operators, who wish to offer fantasy contests in Virginia on or after July 1, 2019. Any operator applying for registration may not operate during this early application period. This office will not grant a registration to any operators paying an $8,300 registration fee with an effective operating date before July 1, 2019.
Any fantasy contest operator wishing to operate before July 1, 2019, may submit an application and pay the current annual registration fee of $50,000.
VDACS recognizes the following three laboratories as authorized to verify compliance with the applicable provisions of Virginia’s Fantasy Contests Act. Registered Fantasy Contest Operators are required to submit testing reports verifying compliance to OCRP on an annual basis.
