Effective on Friday, February 3, 2006
  • 1(1) Effective February 6, 2006, the Florida Lottery will conduct, as a retailer sales incentive, a Retailer FLORIDA LOTTO Bonus Commission Program (“Program”) in which the Florida Lottery will awar31d a bonus commission to the retailer(s) that sells a winning jackpot FLORIDA LOTTO ticket for a Wednesday or Saturday FLORIDA LOTTO drawing.

    54(2) The bonus commission will start at $10,000. In the event no winning jackpot ticket is sold for a FLORIDA LOTTO drawing, the bonus commission amount will increase by $5,000 per draw until a winning jackpot ticket is sold, at which time the bonus commission will start over at $10,000.

    107(3) If multiple winning jackpot FLORIDA LOTTO tickets are sold for the same drawing, the retailer(s) selling such tickets will share the bonus commission. Each retailer selling one or more of the winning jackpot tickets will receive a share of the available bonus equal to the number of winning jackpot tickets sold by that particular retailer divided by the total number of winning jackpot tickets sold for that drawing.

    176(4) Award of a jackpot FLORIDA LOTTO bonus commission is not dependent upon the winning jackpot ticket being claimed by the winner.

    198(5) Retailers whose Florida Lottery contracts are terminated or inactivated prior to the bonus commission award shall be paid the bonus commission earned provided said termination or inactivation was not due to noncompliance with Chapter 24, F.S., Chapter 53, F.A.C., or contract terms.

    241(6) A bonus commission will be considered compensation to the retailer for Internal Revenue Service purposes. The Florida Lottery reserves the right to apply a bonus commission earned against a retailer’s outstanding debt to the Florida Lottery, and to award the remaining balance of the bonus commission, if any.

    290(7) FLORIDA LOTTO bonus commissions are subject to availability of funds appropriated for retailer incentives. This Program is subject to cancellation by future emergency rule if retailer incentive funding is not appropriated or if the Florida Lottery determines that it is no longer in the state’s best interest to use such funds for this purpose.
