Retailers

Tickets are sold by retailers that contract with the Wisconsin Lottery. Retailers can only sell lottery tickets for cash and at the price established by the Wisconsin Lottery. Tickets can only be sold to persons at least 18 years of age, but minors may receive lottery tickets as gifts. Retailers receive a basic commission of 6.25% for instant scratch tickets and pull-tab tickets, and 5.5% for lotto products. In addition, nonprofit organizations may apply to sell pull-tab tickets and receive a higher commission rate. Currently there are about 3,800 retail outlets throughout the state, including convenience stores, grocery stores, service stations, restaurants, liquor stores, and nonprofit organizations.

Lottery Property Tax Credit

The proceeds of the Lottery Property Tax Credit are used to credit eligible property taxpayers for a portion of their yearly property taxes.
