Examples of any thing of value include, but are not limited to, cash, food or drink, contributions to a charity or non-profit or tickets to entertainment, cultural or sporting events. To determine the value of attendance at an event, the calculation shall include, if such information is available, the admission fee or ticket price or per person cost to the sponsor or the actual cost of the event may be divided by the number of attendees.

This duty of disclosure shall continue after the submission of the application and throughout the period of examination and investigation of the applicant and its qualifiers by the bureau and commission. The failure to make such disclosures shall constitute a violation of M.G.L. c. 23K, ยง 13 and 205 CMR 112.00: Required Information and Applicant Cooperation, and may result in the denial of the application for a gaming license or to a revocation of a gaming license or any other remedial actions deemed reasonably by the commission.
