The potential sponsors and I wanted to make sure that it wasn't a violation of the rules since this is classified as a "game of chance". I went with the angle that it is for charity, and basically you can treat the payouts like a door price for participants. That didn't fly. We are working on getting a waiver. It is being pushed by someone who is very "influential" It is just not something that will happen in time to have the event this year. I am just about sure next year will be a reality. Everything was basically set for this year except for this. You don't want to know what hoops I had to jump through to get the coast guard clearance!

So you inquired to the casino commission as a proactive measure and they said this? It was. A violation of a written law in the Virgin Islands because there are payouts to participants? What coast guard clearance was needed?
