How to Become a Retailer

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Michigan Lottery retailer.  Under Public Act 239 of 1972 as amended, retailers must be licensed by the Bureau to sell lottery tickets.  Interested retailers must submit an application along with a nonrefundable application fee of $150, and a number of other documents.  Most applicants with an acceptable credit history and no criminal record that would adversely affect the integrity of the Lottery may be approved.  Any criminal record, however, must be disclosed.
