Entry Requirements

(1) Method of Entry: The Lottery will determine the method of entry for any second chance drawing, which may include, but is not limited to, electronic entry through a website, mail, or walk-in entries.

(2) Electronic Entry: To submit a valid electronic entry, a person must:

(a) Register as a member on a Lottery designated website. A person may only have one active membership at a time;

(b) Enter the Game ID number, the box code, and the ticket code from the Lottery game ticket that is eligible for the particular second chance drawing;

(c) Provide any additional information as required by the Lottery; and

(d) Submit the electronic entry prior to the deadline for submission of entries for the second chance drawing as announced by the Lottery.

(3) Confirmation of Entry: Each ticket and drawing entry must be validated through the website, and will be considered entered into the drawing once the player receives confirmation of the entry.

(4) Ticket Requirements: Only one Lottery game ticket or share may be used for each entry. If the second chance drawing specifies use of a Scratch-itSM ticket for entry into the drawing, only a Lottery Scratch-itSM game ticket from an active Scratch-itSM game, as specified by the Lottery, is eligible for entry into the second chance drawing.

(5) Single Entrant: Only one person per entry may submit an entry for a second chance drawing. An entry with more than one name on the entry form is invalid.

(6) Other Entry Requirements: The Lottery may establish additional terms and conditions and entry requirements for any second chance drawing. These additional terms and conditions and entry requirements will be posted on a Lottery website or as otherwise announced by the Lottery.

(7) Invalid Entry: Failure to follow any of the terms and conditions or entry requirements of a second chance drawing will invalidate the entry. An invalid entry is void and is not eligible for a second chance drawing prize. Invalid entries will not be returned to the entrant. If the Lottery determines the winning entry is invalid, the prize shall be treated as an unclaimed prize and is the property of the Lottery Commission to be allocated to the benefit of the public purpose.

Selection of Winners

(1) When Drawing Held: A Lottery second chance drawing will be held at such date, time, place, and in such manner as is determined by the Lottery and will be conducted only after the deadline for submitting entries has closed, as announced by the Lottery.

(2) Random Drawing: During the drawing for each available prize in a second chance drawing, the Lottery, or a drawing agent, will randomly select a winning entry from all the entries submitted for that drawing.

(3) Selection of Entry: To select a winning entry, the Lottery, or a drawing agent, may conduct a manual or electronic drawing, or may use any other selection procedure as determined by the Lottery Director that ensures a random selection of a winning entry.

(4) Suspension or Cancellation of Drawing: At the discretion of the Lottery Director, a second chance drawing may be suspended. If the Director suspends a drawing the Director may hold a replacement drawing or cancel the drawing. If the second chance drawing is canceled, the Lottery, in its sole discretion, may provide an entrant who entered the drawing with a coupon for a Lottery product, or a promotional reward, the value of which shall be solely determined by the Lottery. This is an entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy.

Winner Notification and Claiming of Prizes

(1) Second Chance Prize Notification: If the entry is valid, the Lottery will notify the person who submitted the winning entry (“the winner”) in a second chance drawing by e-mail. The Lottery may also notify the winner by telephone or by mailing a certified letter through the U.S. Postal Service. The effective date of notification is the date the initial e-mail notification is sent by the Lottery as noted electronically within the Lottery’s information processing system.

(2) Time Limits for Claiming Prize: A winner of a second chance drawing has 60 calendar days from the date of the e-mail notification in which to claim the prize. A prize must be claimed by 5:00 p.m. on the last date to claim a prize and if not claimed by that date is an unclaimed prize. If the final date of the claim period falls on a day when the Oregon Lottery Headquarters is not open to the general public, such as a weekend, Lottery holiday, or furlough closure day, the claim period shall be extended until 5:00 p.m. on the next day the Oregon Lottery Headquarters is open to the general public.

(3) Forfeiture of Prize: If the winner of a second chance drawing is determined by the Lottery to be ineligible, the entry is invalid, or the winner fails to claim the prize within 60 calendar days as provided in section (2) of this rule, the prize is treated as an unclaimed prize and the winner forfeits the prize.

(4) Winner Claim Forms: To claim a prize in a second chance drawing, the winner must submit a winner claim form to the Lottery. To be valid, the winner claim form must contain the required information, such as name, address, signature or identifying mark, social security number (if applicable), and a valid reference number. Only the person who submitted the entry may claim the prize (the winner). A second chance drawing prize may not be claimed by multiple owners. A valid winner claim form must be received by the Lottery within the applicable time period for claiming a prize. An invalid winner claim form will not be accepted by the Lottery and will be returned to the claimant. The winner may resubmit a valid claim form as long as the time for claiming the prize has not expired.

(a) Electronic Claim Form: The Lottery may require that the winner submit an electronic winner claim form through the Internet. The electronic winner claim form is received by the Lottery when the form enters the Lottery’s information processing system in a retrievable form. The electronic winner claim form will be deemed received at the time and date noted electronically by the Lottery’s information processing system. An electronic winner claim form must include the winner’s electronic signature that meets the requirements specified by the Lottery on the instructions for the winner claim form.

(b) Paper Claim Form: Unless specified otherwise, the Lottery may permit a winner to submit a paper winner claim form. The paper winner claim form is deemed received by fax to (503) 540-1001 or upon physical delivery to the Oregon State Lottery, Player Services Office, 500 Airport Road SE, Salem, Oregon 97301, either in person, or by delivery service, or through the U.S. mail to the Oregon State Lottery, P.O. Box 14515, Salem, Oregon 97309. The winner claim form must be received by the Lottery during the Lottery's business hours, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. PST, excluding holidays and furlough closure days.

(5) Verification of Identity: The Lottery may require the winner to present valid proof of identity to confirm that the winner is the registered member who submitted the second chance drawing entry. If the Lottery is unable to confirm the person claiming the prize is the registered member, the person is ineligible to receive a prize.

(6) Delivery of Prize: The Lottery may require the winner of a second chance drawing prize to claim the winner’s prize at the Oregon State Lottery Headquarters, 500 Airport Road SE, Salem, Oregon 97301, or the Lottery may mail or otherwise deliver the prize to the winner’s address if it is within the United States.

(7) Taxes and Fees: Unless otherwise stated by the Lottery in the terms and conditions for a particular second chance drawing, all taxes and fees are the responsibility of the winner claiming the prize.
