Ohio Lottery Bond

Ohio Lottery Bond

Why do I need this bond?

The Ohio lottery bond is put in place to ensure that principals (lottery retailers) comply with all laws, rules, policies and regulations governing the license.

If the retailer fails to adhere to these terms, the bond protects harmed parties up to the full penal sum of the bond. The principal must repay the surety for all damages paid out.

What’s the fine print?

Lottery sales retailer bonds in Ohio remain in full force and effect until otherwise terminated. The surety can cancel the bond at any time by providing written notice to the Lottery Commission. Cancellation becomes effective 30 days after the commission receives the notice.

The bond is conditioned so that both lottery customers and the commission can file claims against the retailer in the case of unpaid dues of any kind. Regardless of the number of years the bond is renewed for, no claim can exceed the penal sum of $15,000.
