The more you sell, the more you earn. On average, an active Vendor currently earns $25,000 - $40,000 a year.

How the Virgin Islands Lottery works for Vendors

It's easy to get tickets and sell them. Just follow these simple steps.

Complete the Vendor / Dealer Application Process.

See above for details.

Visit the closest Virgin Islands Lottery office to purchase your tickets.

Tickets are available for sale the day of the last drawing. "Extra" tickets are available 45 days prior to each drawing. You purchase as many tickets as you want. You can always return to buy more as you run out. As you develop regular customers, they may request specific numbers. You have the ability to reserve those numbers, once awarded, just for your clients! Instant repeat sales!

Sell your tickets full-sheet or by the individual ticket.

Sell your tickets by the full sheet for $30 for the regular drawings or $50 for the "Extra" drawings. You keep $7 for each regular ticket sheet and $10 for each "Extra" ticket sheet. You can also sell each, by the row, half sheets or any way your customers want to buy. It's up to you!

Do you have a few tickets left at drawing time?

Watch the Numbers! You could be the winner yourself! Every 1 in 8 players win. It just could be you!

Drawings are held at the St. Thomas Lottery office on the date of the drawing.

Drawings are held usually every two weeks on a Thursday for regular drawings. You are welcome to come and watch the action along with many other Vendors and customers. It's an exciting process!

Check your numbers to see if you won.

You can check your winning numbers online at our website or check the "Scheme" sheets that are printed as soon as the winner's list is verified; usually within evening of the drawing. Public notification of the winning numbers is also published in the St. Croix Avis.

Collecting cash and prizes is easy, too.
