For raffles, “ideal profit” means the total amount of moneys received for ticket sales, less the total value of prizes paid out.

All compensation received by a person as a result of a contract with a holder of a permit issued under AS 05.15 and related to the location or operation of authorized gaming activities within the borough shall be subject to the sales tax levied at HBC 3.80.030, regardless of how the compensation is designated.
