Division of the Lottery

Agent Selection and Licensing

The Division of the Lottery administers games of chance to raise revenue for public education. Tickets for these games are sold by agents that are licensed by the Division. We examined certain aspects of the Division's procedures for selecting and licensing these agents. In general, we found these procedures adequately protect the State's interests in the games. However, the Division could improve its evaluation of prospective agents and strengthen its criminal background checks on the agents.
