the Automated Fingerprint Identification System by the West Virginia Lottery for any lawful investigative and

identification purposes.


I am aware that my entire background, both criminal and financial, will be thoroughly investigated by the State Lottery

hereby authorize the State Lottery Office to release to my potential casino employer the following information about me

and my application for licensure:


The notification of the issuance and forwarding of a copy of the permanent or temporary Level 1 or Level 2

employee license issued to me by the State Lottery Office to my prospective casino employer; or

Level 1 or Level 2 license has been denied by the State Lottery Commission, whether an appeal of the denial

has been filed, and the status of the appeal process.


The notification to my prospective casino employer by the State Lottery Office of the status of my pending

application for a Level 1 or Level 2 license, if requested by my prospective casino employer, with the

understanding that no personal or private information will be disclosed to the casino.

I understand that a false statement in my application or on this form may result in the withdrawal, suspension, or revocation of my temporary license and could lead to the denial of my occupational license application. I affirm, under the penalties of perjury, that the information set forth in this document is true and complete, to the best of my knowledge.

This form is included to notify you of our privacy practices and no action is required on your part.

With the exception of Lottery Commissioners, Lottery officers or Lottery employees, the West Virginia Lottery will only ask you for your social security number in the following circumstances:


You claim a lottery prize of $600 or more directly from the Lottery, either by mail or personally at our

Charleston or Weirton office. Your social security number is also your tax identification number, and the

Internal Revenue Code requires that this prize payment be reported to the IRS along with the winner’s tax identification number [ Form W-2G]1

2. You are a sole proprietor of a business, a partner in a business, or the shareholder of an incorporated business that is a lottery retailer or sales agent, and the Lottery must prepare an IRS [Form 1099] to report sales commissions received by you along with a tax identification number if that number is also a social security number [Form 1099]; or


You are applying for a lottery license or permit and you must allow the Lottery to capture your fingerprint

images to be transported to the FBI’s National Criminal Information Center [NCIC] for criminal background

investigation required by statutory or regulatory authority. This is an FBI requirement; or


You have applied for a lottery license or permit and you have been asked to send copies of one or more years

of your federal income tax returns in order to determine your credit worthiness for a table games license.2

Disclosure of your social security number should only be made if obtained from you in accordance with Section 7 of the Privacy Act of 1974. Your disclosure is voluntary and failure to provide the number will not subject you to a criminal or civil penalty.

When the West Virginia Lottery obtains your social security number, it will use the number for the purpose(s) cited above. The Lottery will not sell or share this number with any other person or entity, and will decline to make it available in response to any freedom of information request. Only government entities that are authorized to receive and use social security numbers by law will gain access, other than when outside access is ordered by a competent court of record.

If you have any questions or concerns about this privacy notice, or if you wish to submit a complaint regarding the Lottery’s privacy policy, please contact the Legal Division at (304) 558-0500 ext. 255.

1 Prize winners of more than $600 who are unable or unwilling to submit their tax identification number are subject to federal income tax “back-up” withholding of 28% of the prize money.
2 Either after the license is issued to the applicant, or else after the applicant has exhausted all appeals, the returns will be taken from the application file and shredded.

1. You must be scheduled with the casino to be fingerprinted by the WV Lottery Security Department.
2. You must have the attached “Fingerprint Information Release form” completed and signed at time you are fingerprinted.
3. You must have a valid Driver’s License, valid State issued identification card or valid Government issued identification card at the time you are fingerprinted. Valid passports are also acceptable.
