For every dollar that a lottery player spends, how much money would a vendor get?
It really all depends. With Powerball & Mega Millions games they tend to get a set amount (bonus) if a Jackpot ticket is sold at their store. In Florida, for scratch offs, retailers dont get anything if they sell a Top Prize ticket.
I have heard though, during special promotions, the lottery commision will offer a special incentive for certain tickets for the retailers. For example, when the $20 Game in FL called "Billion Dollar Blockbuster" was released, retailers were paid $1 for every ticket sold. I have also heard from a retailer here that I see many times per week, that the FL lottery gives them 1% of all ticket sales on scratch offs. Im sure it varies by state
I know of a way to find out what type of incentives retailers get in FL and for what games, but that won't help for your state =)
