Lottery Bonds

What is a Lottery Bond?

A Lottery bond may be required by the state government.  It acts as an agreement between a lottery retailer and the state, which promises that the lottery retailer will turn over the states portion of the sale of all lottery tickets and earnings. This type of bond is called a Financial Guarantee.

How does a Lottery Bond Work?

A Lottery bond is required for anyone who sells lottery tickets and/or uses lottery equipment that is available to the public.  It is put in place to protect the state and consumer, so that the lottery retailer handling the funds and equipment is being honest and ethical by following the state’s rules and regulations.  If the lottery retailer is found to be dishonest, fails to follow the laws, or does not pay the lottery commission their monies owed, a claim may be put on the bond.  If that occurs, the bond may be terminated and the lottery retailer will no longer be able to process lottery sales within their business until they take corrective action and repay any claims that occur.

How much does a Lottery Bond Cost?

The cost of this type of bond is based on the bond amount required by the state in which the bond is required.  These bonds are considered a Financial Guarantee and standard rates are a bit higher than other bonds.  The main factor in determining the cost will be the personal credit history of all owners and spouses.  Someone with good credit may pay a lesser premium than a person with poor credit.  However, just because someone has poor credit does not mean we cannot help you.   At Universal Service Agency, we strive to find our clients the best rates with the strongest rated carriers to insure you are getting the best bond coverage available.
