The Lottery pays periodic bonus commissions to Retailers meeting the requirements of its Retailer incentive program. Retailer incentive programs are based on increases in sales for certain Lottery games. Sales for a Retailer incentive bonus period are compared to previous sales periods. Any increase in sales during the bonus period is rewarded by multiplying the increase by a bonus factor to determine the bonus amount.
There are additional incentives for Retailers to increase their Lottery business from year to year.
