MICHIGAN LOTTERY RETAILER - APPLICANT REQUIREMENTS -

The requirements listed below pertain to Retailers interested in selling Michigan Bureau of State Lottery (Lottery) products. Failure to meet any of these requirements, the terms and conditions of the contract or any other provision of the Lottery Act and Rules may result in disciplinary action up to and including license revocation depending on the nature and severity of the violation.

1.The Lottery advises all applicants for licenses and/or changes of ownership not to invest any money or commit themselves by any binding agreements in the expectation of being issued a license or approval of a change of ownership until officially notified by the Lottery that their application has been approved.

2.Most applicants with an acceptable credit history and no criminal record that would adversely affect the integrity of the Lottery may be licensed. Lottery may require a bond from a Retailer as a condition

of licensure. ANY CRIMINAL RECORD MUST BE DISCLOSED ON PERSONAL DATA SHEETS.

3.The items listed in the applicant checklist are required before the Lottery will license the location.

4.A nonrefundable application fee of $150 is due at time of application. This fee may be remitted by check payable to the State of Michigan or paid on-line at https://www.thepayplace.com/mi/lottery/retailerserv

5.Retailers are required to maintain a separate account in a financial institution that is a member

of The National Automated Clearing House Association. The Lottery must be authorized to initiate electronic funds transfers (EFT) to or from the Retailer’s designated account for the net weekly settlements due from the sale of instant and/or on-line game tickets. The Retailer shall ensure that “good” funds shall be available in the designated account to cover said transfers on the day of week specified by the Lottery.

“Good” funds are defined as unrestricted funds credited to a Retailer’s account that a financial institution will release for payment of an EFT. Unrestricted funds do not include checks placed on hold until they have cleared the maker’s account or deposited checks that the maker’s financial institution has returned unpaid. Any cash alternative settlement methods (such as line of credit, overdraft protection, a pre-approved loan, or any other arrangements) agreed upon with your bank are the Retailer’s responsibility. If a settlement is not honored by your bank, regardless of the reason, the Lottery will consider it a delinquency.

Applicants should submit a completed Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) Authorization Form with the application. If this EFT account will not be established until closing of the sale, a void check or a letter, on bank letterhead, with the bank’s routing number and your checking account number may

be submitted at that time. Lottery products will not be made available to the Retailer until this information is provided.

6.Annual license renewal fee is $200. This fee will be waived for those Retailers who are not on probation for violation of the Lottery Act or its Rules at the time of renewal.

7.It is recommended the Retailer provide (prior to the installation of Lottery equipment) a dedicated circuit with 115 volts, 20 Amp. 60 HZ service with an isolated ground that remains on 24 hours per day. The dedicated circuit must have a 4 outlet box that will accommodate 3 prong, “U” grounded type plugs. The Lottery reserves the right to require a Retailer to obtain certification of a dedicated electrical circuit from a qualified electrician. All installation and ongoing costs for this service will be the responsibility of the Retailer. The outlet shall be located within five feet of the terminal. The Retailer shall provide sufficient space for the operation of the equipment.

8.BUSINESS TYPE - to determine your business type use these definitions when completing the application. A Personal Data Sheet and signature is required before the application will be processed.

a.PROPRIETORSHIP - a business enterprise doing business under an assumed name, that is owned by one person (not registered with the Michigan Department of Labor & Economic Growth). A Proprietorship may use the owner’s Social Security number as a tax identification number or s/he may have a registered Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN). The owner must complete and sign the contract and submit a Personal Data Sheet.

b.PARTNERSHIP - a business enterprise doing business under an assumed name that is NOT registered as a Partnership with the Michigan Department of Labor & Economic Growth. Each Partner must sign the contract and Personal Data Sheets must be provided for all partners.

c.LIMITED PARTNERSHIP - a business enterprise, doing business under an assumed name, that IS registered as a Partnership with the Michigan Department of Labor & Economic Growth. A General Partner must sign the contract and Personal Data Sheets must be provided for all general partners.

d.LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY - a business enterprise, doing business under an assumed name, that is registered as an unincorporated association with the Michigan Department of Labor & Economic Growth. Members are required to sign the contract and submit Personal Data Sheets. (Members are defined as persons having ownership interest in a limited liability company.)

e.CORPORATION - a business enterprise organized as a corporate entity, doing business under an assumed name, that is registered with the Michigan Department of Labor & Economic Growth.

“Closely Held Corporation” means a corporation where a majority (more than 50 percent) of the outstanding voting stock is owned by ten or fewer persons. Any person authorized and empowered to execute contracts and bind the corporation to its terms and obligations may sign the contract. A Personal Data Sheet is required for each owner/shareholder, except that any individual owning less than 10 percent may be listed on a separate sheet of paper and is required only to provide name, Social Security number and percent of ownership.

“Non-Closely Held Corporation” means a corporation where a majority (more than 50 percent) of the outstanding voting stock is owned by more than ten persons. The Principal Operating Officer(s) is/are required to sign the application and submit Personal Data Sheet(s). (A Principal Operating Officer is defined as a person designated to conduct business in the State of Michigan on behalf of the corporation being licensed.)

f.To properly comply with the reporting requirements for the Internal Revenue Service, the Lottery must change the Retailer number assigned to you when you change your business structure. The Lottery defines a change in business structure as anytime your Taxpayer Identification Number, Corporate Number or business type (sole proprietor, partnership or corporation) changes.

When your Retailer number is changed, we must financially close out the old Retailer number. This will result in all activated books having to be settled and paid for, regardless of the length of

time they have been activated or the percentage of validations that have occurred within each book. Once a book has been activated we are unable to reassign the book, which is why payment is required.

You will then be assigned a new Retailer number and all confirmed books will be reassigned to this new number.

9.Please note that the accompanying Retailer license application requires that you indicate if your business is in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). If you have any questions about compliance, please contact the State ADA Coordinator, at 517-373-3125.

If you have any questions, call RETAILER SERVICES (517) 335-5619.
