The North Dakota Lottery is responsible for administering, regulating, enforcing, and promoting the state's lottery.
The Lottery selects and licenses retailers, trains employees of retailers to use lottery terminals, sell tickets, and redeem winning tickets, assists retailers in promoting lottery games, pays high-tier prizes to players, and ensures that retailers and players comply with the lottery law and rules.
The North Dakota Lottery conducts five multistate games:
The Commission primarily serves as a policy advisor to the Attorney General and Director of the North Dakota Lottery and serves as the Audit Committee of the Lottery. The Commission provides an independent perspective on issues and operation of the Lottery and presents ideas and recommends solutions while representing the best interests of the state, public, and lottery industry. The Commission's recommendations are highly considered by the Attorney General.
The Commission may access the resources of the Office of Attorney General. It will rely on the Director to provide the Commission with vital data, progress reports, research, quarterly and annual financial statements, and information related to critical success factors for the Commission's review. The Commission does not prepare documents, but rather reviews or critiques documents that are prepared for the Commission's consideration. Its budget is contained in the Office of Attorney General's appropriation.
The Commission will meet at least on a quarterly basis.
The Attorney General and Director will consult with the Commission on substantive policies, plans, issues, contracts, timelines, and activities of the Lottery, including:
