The commission shall issue a license for the conducting of bingo to any bona fide religious, charitable, fraternal, veteran or service organization or to any combination of eligible organizations, not to exceed five, which submits an application on a form prescribed by the director and which satisfies the director that such organization meets all of the requirements of sections 313.005 to 313.080.

The director may, upon application made by a county fair organization or by any organization qualified to receive a regular license, issue a special license authorizing such organization to conduct bingo for the period of any fair, picnic, festival or celebration conducted by such qualified organization not exceeding one week and which is held not more than once annually, and a special licensee shall be exempt from the provisions of subdivisions (7), (11), and (14) of section 313.040. Each organization receiving a special license shall pay to the director a fee of twenty-five dollars, to be paid into the state treasury to the credit of the gaming commission fund.
