Applicants must certify that they comply with federal, state, and agency accessibility requirements, and provide a personal and criminal history. The Lottery also requires an electronic funds transfer account to transfer Lottery sales debits and credits.
Note: The Lottery will separately charge retailers a one-time $200 set-up fee, and weekly equipment and support fees. For more information, contact the Lottery at 1-800-732-5101, option 4, or 360-753-1412.
