Lottery Bond Guide
Why do you need a lottery bond?
You need to get a bond to protect the public. If you do not pay the required taxes to the state lottery when selling lotto tickets, a claim can be filed on your bond.

No. However, each state has its own lotto bond form and requires different bond amounts.
In some states, yes. Not all states require a bond. Please contact your state directly to determine the specific requirements.
We look solely at personal credit to determine rates on most bonds. The more you improve your credit, the lower your rate will be. However, credit based rates only apply to moderate dollar amounts of bonds. For larger bonds, a strong credit history, excellent personal financials and sufficient business experience are all required for cheaper rates. Check out our video to learn how to get the lowest rate possible.
You will have to contact the claims department of the surety that wrote your bond. We can provide you the contact information if you need it.
Surety Bonds do not protect you
The bond is a form of insurance for your clients, which is why many businesses proudly list that they are bonded on their marketing material. However, you will be required to reimburse the bonding company should a claim be paid out.
