Ticket Purchase, Restrictions, and Characteristics

(1) General: Scoreboard tickets must be purchased during the Oregon Lottery's Scoreboard season which will be determined by the Lottery and announced by reasonable means before or during the season.

(2) Authorized Retailer: Scoreboard tickets are sold at retailer locations that have a Lottery contract to sell Scoreboard tickets.

(3) Age of Player: A player must be at least 18 years of age to purchase a Scoreboard ticket.

(4) Ticket Purchase: A ticket may be purchased either from a clerk-operated terminal, or a player-operated terminal. All Scoreboard tickets are quick picks.

(a) Purchasing a Ticket from a Clerk-Operated Terminal: The player informs the clerk of the event, the number of tickets desired, and the amount of money to be played on each ticket. After the player submits the request and the money to the clerk, the clerk uses the terminal to issue the requested tickets to the player.

(b) Purchasing a Ticket from a Player-Operated Terminal: A player may purchase Scoreboard tickets from a player-operated terminal by following the instructions appearing on the touch screen of the terminal. Once the player has completed the player’s selection and inserted the price of the tickets into the terminal, the terminal issues the tickets to the player.

(5) Ticket Description: On each ticket purchased by the player, four sets of two single-digit numbers for each of the specified event’s periods of play will be printed. The single-digit numbers produced will range from zero through nine. No two sets of numbers in any period of play will be duplicated.

(6) Ticket Characteristics: A ticket is the only acceptable evidence of the selections made by a player and the only valid receipt for claiming a prize. A copy of a ticket has no pecuniary or prize value and does not constitute evidence of ticket purchase or the selections made by a player.

Sporting Event Cancellation, Rescheduling, or Suspension

(1) Cancellation of Sporting Event: If a sporting event is canceled prior to the start, or during the course of play, and it is not declared final and it is not rescheduled by the governing body for that event, the Director shall authorize the refund of the purchase price of a player's ticket for that sporting event to the player.

(2) Sporting Event Rescheduled: If a sporting event is rescheduled prior to the start, or during the course of play, by the governing body for that event, play on the Scoreboard tickets purchased for that sporting event may continue for the sporting event at the rescheduled time, or in the exercise of the Director's discretion, the Director may authorize the refund of the purchase price of a player's ticket for that sporting event to the player.

(3) Suspension of Sporting Event After Play Has Started: If a sporting event is suspended after play has started and the governing body for that event does not reschedule the event and declares the results of that event as official/final, the Lottery shall adopt the score from the last completed period of play as the score for any remaining unplayed periods of play as well as the final score of that sporting event. For example, if a professional football game ends after two quarters of play, and the National Football League declares the game official, the score at the end of the second quarter of play also becomes the score for the unplayed third quarter and the final game score.
