Lotto Licensing Rules and Fees

In 2009, the South Dakota Lottery entered into a new contract with a private vendor to run the Lottery equipment and network. The new contract not only provided better and faster equipment for Lottery retailers, but also provided more equipment, allowing more retailers to be added to the network. Under the contract, the same equipment is utilized for both instant ticket only retailers and instant and lotto ticket retailers. However, the new equipment came at a higher cost to the Lottery.

In early 2010, the Lottery Commission and the Legislative Rules Review Committee approved new licensing rules and fees to make it easier for retailers to become licensed to sell instant and lotto ticket games, and allow the Lottery to recoup some of the costs incurred from expanding the retailer network.

With large amounts of cash on hand and often small staffs working, video lottery casinos can be viewed as easy targets for burglars and robbers. We encourage you to take steps to protect your business, employees and customers. Here are some tips:

Conduct a Burglary Self-Assessment Test on your casino. Are all exterior entrances and exits well lit? Does your camera surveillance system have recording capabilities? Do you have a security alarm system that's monitored by local law enforcement or an alarm company?

Instruct your employees to make note of suspicious people in the business or vehicles that are out of place after hours.

Have your employees empty video lottery machines and the tills before leaving the casino at night.

Implement a plan for what your employees should do to protect themselves and customers if confronted by a robber. Ensure ALL employees are aware of the plan.

Burglaries and robberies are among the most difficult crimes to solve. If your casino is victimized, contact local law enforcement then submit a Video Lottery Burglary Report Form to the Lottery. Both Lottery Security and the Division of Criminal Investigation will use the information to track trends and identify weaknesses that burglars exploit for their crimes.

Completed Video Lottery Burglary Report Forms can be mailed to:
