Join our network of more than 13,000 retailers

Our network of more than 13,000 retailers brings Lottery games to Floridians from the Panhandle to the Keys. Every retailer plays a critical role in our mission to generate additional revenue for Florida's students and schools. Retailers earn commissions on Lottery sales and can build their business by offering the fun and excitement of Florida Lottery games

Considering adding the Florida Lottery to your business? Becoming a Florida Lottery retailer comes with countless benefits for your bottom line.

As an official lottery retailer, you'll earn a sales commission for every ticket sold without any initial investment.

In recent years, the average Florida Lottery retailer added over $32,000 to their annual earnings from lottery ticket sales. And if your location sells a jackpot or top prize winning ticket, you could earn a bonus commission of up to one hundred thousand dollars.

We call that a big win all around.

Selling tickets from the Florida Lottery also increases foot traffic in your store and boosts overall customer purchases. On average, customers buying lottery tickets spend 65 percent more than non-lottery customers, and an incredible 95% of customers purchasing lottery tickets buy at least one additional item.

The Florida Lottery is also committed to supporting education and has contributed tens of billions of dollars to Florida education since 1988.

When you become a Florida Lottery retailer, you begin actively supporting education in your community and throughout Florida with every ticket sold.

Become an official Florida Lottery retailer in two steps!

  1. Contact your nearest Lottery District Office to request a site visit. A Lottery sales representative will visit your business to conduct an initial review and answer any preliminary questions.

  2. Complete the appropriate retailer application and required forms. A Lottery sales representative can assist in the completion of these forms, if needed. Once completed, a Lottery sales representative will submit your application forms; do not mail these forms. Use this Retailer Application Checklist to ensure your application package is complete.

Under the Federal Privacy Act, disclosure of a person's Social Security number is voluntary unless a Federal statute specifically requires such disclosure or allows states to collect the number. In connection with filing an application to become a Florida Lottery retailer, disclosure of the applicant's Social Security number is required by rule 26 U.S.C.A. s. 6109 for tax reporting purposes. The applicant's Social Security number will also be used in performing the background investigation necessary to implement Section 24.112, Florida statutes, because the Social Security number is used as an identifier in the databases searched. The Lottery may also provide this information to law enforcement agencies to enforce criminal laws. Under Section 119.071(5), Florida Statutes, an agency may collect Social Security numbers if it is imperative for the performance of the agency's duties and responsibilities. Notice is hereby provided that for retailer applicants that are legal entities, it is imperative that the Lottery use the Social Security numbers of members, partners, officers, directors, etc., to conduct the background investigations necessary to implement Section 24.112, Florida Statutes, because the Social Security number is used as an identifier in the databases searched.
