Why are lottery retailers required to be bonded?

North Carolina lottery bonds ensure that principals (lottery retailers) remit payments for the sale of lottery tickets as specified in the Retailer Contract. Specifically, this bond guarantees the compensation of the state and consumers if an applicant commits fraud or other damaging acts, such as falsifying records of sale or failing to pay requisite dues on sales.
