LOTTERY RAFFLE GAME RULES

177-069-0000

Game Description

(1) General: A Lottery raffle is a lottery game in which a specified number of Lottery raffle game tickets, as determined by the Lottery, are available for purchase. A unique sequential identifying number(s) is printed on each Lottery raffle ticket. Each unique number represents a chance for a prize in a particular Lottery raffle drawing. Players win prizes by matching the number(s) on the player’s Lottery raffle ticket to the numbers drawn by the Lottery during the Lottery raffle drawing.

(2) Prizes: The prizes and the prize structure for each Lottery raffle are determined by the Lottery and will be posted on the Lottery’s Website at www.oregonlottery.org while the Lottery raffle tickets for a particular Lottery raffle are being sold. The odds of winning a prize will vary depending on the number of Lottery raffle tickets sold for the particular Lottery raffle. The Lottery may advertise the prize structure by any reasonable means. All prizes will be awarded regardless of the number of Lottery raffle tickets sold unless the Lottery raffle drawing is suspended by the Lottery Director in accordance with OAR 177-046-0140.

(3) Determination of Winners: A player wins a prize in a Lottery raffle game when during a raffle drawing the Lottery selects the unique sequential identifying number on the player’s Lottery raffle ticket as a winning number for a prize.

(4) Sales Location: A Lottery raffle ticket may only be sold by and purchased from a Lottery retailer authorized to sell Lottery raffle tickets, or a Lottery sales location.

(5) Ticket Price: The price of a Lottery raffle ticket will be set by the Lottery for each Lottery raffle drawing held by the Lottery. A player may purchase more than one Lottery raffle ticket. A Lottery raffle ticket may represent a single play or multiple plays at the Lottery’s discretion. If the Lottery raffle ticket represents multiple plays, each play will have a unique sequential identifying number printed on the Lottery raffle ticket.

Ticket Purchase, Characteristics, and Restrictions

(1) Availability of Lottery Raffle Tickets: The Lottery may periodically announce the availability of Lottery raffle tickets which will be available for limited sales periods. A Lottery raffle ticket may then be purchased during the hours of operation of the Lottery’s central computer system and a Lottery retailer’s business hours of operation. When all the Lottery raffle tickets are sold for a particular Lottery raffle game, no more tickets will be available for purchase for that Lottery raffle game. The Lottery will close sales of Lottery raffle tickets at a date and time determined by the Lottery. The Lottery may extend this date at its discretion. If the Lottery extends the sales date, it may advertise that fact by any reasonable means.

(2) Ticket Purchase: A Lottery raffle ticket may be purchased either from a clerk-operated Draw game terminal or from a player-operated Draw game terminal.

(a) Clerk-Operated Terminal: A player may purchase a Lottery raffle ticket from a clerk-operated terminal by requesting that the clerk use the clerk-operated terminal to issue a Lottery raffle ticket(s). Upon payment of the price of the ticket(s) to the clerk, the clerk will use the terminal to issue the requested number of Lottery raffle tickets purchased by the player.

(b) Player-Operated Terminal: A player may purchase a Lottery raffle ticket from a player-operated terminal by following the instructions appearing on the screen of the terminal and inserting payment for the ticket(s). Upon payment for the ticket(s), the terminal will issue the number of Lottery raffle tickets purchased by the player.

(3) Ticket Sales: Lottery raffle tickets are sold in numerical order. A player does not select the unique identifying number(s) on the Lottery raffle ticket. A player purchasing a Lottery raffle ticket through a Draw game terminal will be issued the next sequentially available number determined by the Lottery’s central computer system.

(4) Player’s Risk: The purchase of a Lottery raffle ticket is done at the player’s own risk either through the Lottery retailer who is acting on behalf of the player in entering the player’s request to purchase a Lottery raffle ticket, or the player’s purchase of a Lottery raffle ticket by operation of a player-operated terminal.

Lottery Raffle Drawing

(1) General: A Lottery raffle drawing will be held at such date, time, place, and in such manner as is determined by the Lottery. A Lottery raffle drawing will be conducted only after sales for the particular Lottery raffle game are closed. During each drawing for each available prize, the Lottery will randomly select a Lottery raffle ticket number(s) as a winner from all the tickets sold for that drawing. Selection of a ticket’s number as a winning number removes that number from selection in the Lottery raffle drawing for any other remaining prize(s). An unsold Lottery raffle ticket number is not eligible for selection as a winning ticket number. To select a winning Lottery raffle ticket number(s), Lottery personnel, or their authorized agents, may conduct a manual or electronic drawing, or may use any other selection procedure as determined by the Lottery that ensures a random selection of a winning Lottery raffle ticket number(s) for the prize(s) in the particular Lottery raffle game.

(2) Official Drawing Results: For each Lottery raffle drawing, the winning raffle ticket numbers drawn by the Lottery become official and final when both of the following events have occurred:

(a) The winning raffle ticket numbers are entered into the Lottery’s central computer system for the purpose of validating winning raffle tickets for that Lottery raffle drawing, and;

(b) The winning raffle ticket numbers for that Lottery raffle drawing have been announced to the public. The Lottery will determine in what manner and at what time the winning raffle ticket numbers are announced.

(3) Retroactive Application: It is the Lottery’s intent that section (2) of this rule apply retroactively to Lottery raffle drawings beginning March 1, 2009.

(4) Suspension of Play: If all available tickets for a Lottery raffle game are not sold before purchases are disabled prior to the scheduled drawing time, the Lottery may suspend the Lottery raffle drawing in accordance with OAR 177-046-0140. The Lottery will advertise the suspension of a Lottery raffle drawing by any reasonable means. At the discretion of the Director, the Lottery may hold a replacement Lottery raffle drawing, or provide a refund for each Lottery raffle ticket purchased and which is presented to the Lottery or a Lottery retailer by a player. Submission of the Lottery raffle ticket is the sole method for claiming a refund under this section.
