SBAM Annual Reports

All licensed Type-B & Type-C SBAM operators and SBAM vendors are required to file an initial report with the Commission and annually no later than March 31 of each calendar year. Reports must be submitted using the Commission’s Skill Games Reporting system. In order to complete the report, you will need the following information:

  • A list of all locations where the licensee operates/operated SBAMs;
  • A list of all of the games (by title and manufacturer, individual serial numbers are not required) operated at a location;
  • A list of the vendors or operators with which you sold, bought, or otherwise obtained an SBAM during the year;
  • Operators will also need access to basic financial information including: the amount spent on prize inventory in the year, gross revenue, and amounts paid to locations (if applicable).

Please note: Once a licensee completes their initial annual report, the information entered will be saved for use in future reports. 

There is no fee to file reports with the Commission. To submit a report, use the Skill Games Reporting system.
