Become a Retailer

Everybody knows you can win big playing the Lottery, but did you know that some of our biggest winners are actually our retail partners? Retailers earned an average of over $15,000 selling Lottery games in FY19. For a business like yours, the Lottery is much more than a fun way to play — it’s a great way to profit. Our retail network includes over 3,000 businesses all over the state.

How Much Money Can You Earn?

While annual profits vary from one retailer to the next, our retailers earn an average of more than $15,000 a year from selling Lottery games.
