What is a Lottery Sales Agent Bond?

As part of the approval process of a lottery sales agent license, the Director of the Agency may require the license applicant to submit a surety bond.
The surety bond is needed to guarantee that the lottery sales agent will fulfill his or her obligations. This includes the following:

  • That the lottery sales agent will perform its duties according to the laws of the state and the rules of the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency.
  • That the lottery sales agent knows that he or she is the custodian of the trust property (ex. lottery proceeds, tickets sold) for the lottery.
  • The lottery sales agent will forward the monies to the Lottery’s account.
  • Maintain accurate bookkeeping and accounting records.

Any person who will be harmed by the lottery sales agent’s noncompliance to the said laws and rules will be eligible to receive compensation through a bond claim.
