How much does a Virginia state lottery bond cost?
The Commonwealth of Virginia requires lottery retailers to post $20,000 surety bonds which can cost as little as $200. However, these bonds are subject to underwriting, meaning the price an applicant actually pays for his or her lottery bond will be based on a review of their credit by an underwriter.

Why do I need a Virginia lottery bond?
Virginia lottery bonds are put in place to ensure that principals (lottery retailers) pay all sums due to the state for lottery tickets/proceeds and comply with all statutes, rules and regulations pertaining to the license.
If the principal violates the terms of his or her bond agreement and the state or an individual is harmed as a result, the surety will cover damages up to the full penal sum of the bond. The principal must reimburse the surety for all damages paid out.
