Tennessee Lottery Retailer Bond

How much does a lottery bond cost in Tennessee?

The Tennessee lottery retailer surety bond is a credit based bond, which means the amount you’ll pay for your bond depends on your personal credit report and is subject to underwriting.

The bond amount is determined by the Tennessee Education Lottery Corporation and varies depending on the average sales of lottery tickets in a lottery retailer’s district. The bond amount will never exceed a district’s lottery ticket expense for two billing periods.
