Why do I need this bond?

By posting a Connecticut lottery retailer bond, principals (lottery sales agents) pledge to conduct business in accordance with the laws of the state, including making timely payments of all Lottery sales obligations, at the location(s) listed on the bond form. Prohibited acts include:

  • selling lottery tickets or paying lottery prizes to any person under the age of 18 years
  • selling or re-selling a lottery ticket for more than the retail sales price
  • engaging exclusively in the business of selling lottery tickets or shares solely for entertainment
  • accepting forms of payment other than cash, check, debit cards or authorized coupons for the purchase of lottery cards
  • not maintaining ticket inventory
  • not immediately notifying the Lottery upon the theft, loss, destruction of or damage to any tickets in the retailer’s possession
  • selling tickets and products at locations not specified in the contract
  • and more

If the principal fails to conduct business ethically and lawfully, the bond protects harmed parties from financial loss up to the full amount of the bond. The principal must reimburse the surety for all damages paid out.

What’s the fine print?

Lottery sales agent payment bonds in Connecticut remain in full force and effect until canceled. To cancel the bond, the surety must give written notice to the Connecticut Lottery Corporation via certified mail at least 60 days prior the effective cancellation date.
