Thank you retailers for working so hard to bring Good Fun to the state of South Dakota. This page is just for you! You can also log in to your Secure Retailer Website by clicking below.



As many businesses throughout the state begin to re-open, please remember to follow protocol when re-enrolling your video lottery terminals. As we all know, the COVID-19 situation is rapidly changing, so it’s important for all parties to communicate effectively.

We understand that you want to get your machines re-enrolled as soon as possible, but we remind you to abide by laws and regulations set by local governments before beginning this process. If you have video lottery terminals in establishments that are re-opening, email us at to begin this process. This email should include the names and license numbers of the establishments that will re-open, as well your technician’s contact information.

In order to streamline the re-enrollment process, make sure that video lottery terminals are powered on. We will also need to be able to connect to the site controllers. Everything that was powered down when the establishments closed needs to be powered back up.

These requests must be made by the Operator. Requests from establishments will not be accepted. An establishment must be current on its licensing renewal in order to re-enroll the terminals at the location. Once our staff begins the re-enrollment process, we will notify you. Please be prepared to have a technician visit the establishment if there are any problems during the re-enrollment process.

Be advised that that the re-enrollment process is not instantaneous. Our staff will work diligently to get your machines up as quickly as possible.

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:
