Break Open Tickets

Over $70M of Break Open Tickets are for sale on behalf of nonprofits in Vermont annually and the State would like to ensure that the money gets to the nonprofits that deserve it.  The Department of Liquor and Lottery has been charged with the responsibility of licensing and collecting data from Break Open Ticket manufacturers and distributors as well collecting data from the Non-Profits that purchase tickets.  Often Non-Profits have other entities, such as bars and clubs, selling their tickets on their behalf.  The DLL reviews the data from all parties to ensure that the amount returned to the Non-Profit is reasonable.
