Definitions

For the purposes of division 83, in addition to the definitions set forth in OAR 177-070-005, the following definitions apply except as otherwise specifically provided in OAR chapter 177 or unless the context requires otherwise:

(1) “Exchange ticket” means a computer-generated, printed paper issued by a terminal to replace a game ticket that had been purchased for play in consecutive Lucky Lines drawings and was validated as a winning ticket before the latest drawing appearing on the game ticket. An exchange ticket shall contain the exact game play and future drawing dates appearing on the validated game ticket it is replacing and shall have all other characteristics of a game ticket except as otherwise stated in these rules. An exchange ticket shall not contain a ticket price.

(2) “Play” or “Game play” means the eight different numbers which appear on a grid on a Lucky Lines ticket and are to be played by a player in a drawing. These eight numbers are compared to the winning numbers selected for each of the drawings appearing on the ticket.

(3) “Quick Pick” means the random selection of numbers by a terminal, which appears as the game play on a Lucky Lines ticket.

(4) “Draw game terminal” or “Terminal” has the meaning set forth in OAR 177-070-0005(4).

Game Description

(1) General: Lucky Lines is a game based on a grid consisting of nine fields. There are four numbers in eight of the nine fields. The center field is a free field. To play the game, one number is selected from each of the eight fields that contain numbers. The player may select the numbers from each of the eight fields or may select the numbers using the Quick Pick option. During each drawing, the Lottery randomly selects one number from each of the eight fields as the winning numbers.

(2) Determination of Winners: A player wins by matching the player’s numbers on the grid in a straight line, either horizontally, vertically, or diagonally, to the winning numbers on the grid selected by the Lottery for that drawing. There are eight possible ways to match numbers in a straight line on each ticket.

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