Text Search


Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

     22-25-23.   Bingo defined. As used in this chapter, the term, bingo, is that game in which each player is supplied a card, board, or electronic bingo device containing five adjoining horizontal and vertical rows with five spaces in each row each containing a number or figure therein, except for the central row with four spaces, each containing a number or figure therein and the word, free, marked in the center space thereof. Upon announcement by the person conducting the game of any number or figure appearing on the player's card, board, or electronic bingo device, the space containing the figure or number is covered by the player. If the player covers all five spaces in any horizontal or vertical row, covers four spaces and the free space in a five space diagonal row, or covers the required combination of spaces in some other preannounced pattern or arrangement, the combination of spaces covered constitutes bingo. The player to first announce bingo is awarded money, merchandise, or some other consideration by the person conducting the game. For purposes of this section, an electronic bingo device does not include any device which may be activated for play by a player inserting coins, tokens, tickets, vouchers, or similar objects of value or which is capable of dispensing coins, tokens, vouchers, tickets, or any similar object of value.
