Maryland private businesses which offer lottery tickets are regulated by the state’s lottery Commission.
As an applicant for the sales of lottery tickets, a surety bond may be required by the state’s Director.
By statute, there is no specific amount or formula for the Maryland lottery retailer bond. According to state law, the Director will inform you of the surety bond amount required.
For purposes of securing your surety bond, that will be enough. We will need you to inform us of the amount required for underwriting your bond.
Qualifying for the lottery surety bond will be accomplished by means of the following:
For well-qualified applicants, the cost of the Maryland lottery retailer bond will typically be between 1-1.5% of the bond's amount. However, amounts may vary. Variables which will determine the pricing for this bond include information provided on the application and credit scores.
Once issued, the bond is active for a year from the date of issuance. In some cases, options may exist to prepay your lottery bond for 2 or 3 years. Doing so offers a savings over year to year renewal of the bond premium.
The purpose of your lottery retailer bond is to serve as a financial guarantee that you will be in compliance with all regulations governing the sales of lottery tickets.
The bond protects consumers and the state of Maryland from any acts of malfeasance or misfeasance involved in selling tickets, and protects these same from the results of any harm.
As principal of this surety bond, you must indemnify the surety for any costs related to payment of any claims against your bond.
