Ohio Laws and Rules

(A) Title and term. Ohio lottery commission game number eleven, "Countdown to 2000," shall be conducted at such times and for such periods as the commission may determine. For the purpose of this rule, "sales cycle" shall mean any such period, including reprints, beginning on the date when ticket sales are commenced and continuing through the date established by the director as the date on which agents are to make their final settlement with respect to tickets allocated to them during the period in game number eleven.

(B) General design.

(1) Game number eleven is an instant lottery game within which are four separate games which collectively contain fourteen chances to win.

(a) "game 1" and "game 2" are key number match games with a doubler feature. In both "game 1" and "game 2," there are two "countdown numbers," six "your numbers" and six prize amounts. If any one or more of the "your numbers" in either "game 1" or "game 2" match either of the "countdown numbers" in that same game, the player wins the corresponding prize value shown for the matched "your number(s)." If the "doubler" symbol is revealed below a "your numbers" play spot in either "game 1" or "game 2," the player automatically wins double the corresponding prize value. "game 1" and "game 2" are played separately.

(b) "game 3" and "game 4" are symbol match games. In both "game 3" and "game 4," the player reveals three symbols. If two of the three symbols revealed in either "game 3" or "game 4" are identical, the player wins ten dollars for that game. If three symbols revealed in either "game 3" or "game 4" are identical, the player wins twenty-five dollars for that game. "Game 3" and "game 4" are played separately.

(2) As used in this rule, "prize award" shall mean one of the following monetary figures which is the total of all winning prize values appearing on the ticket: Five dollars, ten dollars, fifteen dollars, twenty-five dollars, fifty dollars, one hundred dollars, five hundred dollars, two thousand dollars, twenty-four thousand dollars paid out over one year, one hundred four thousand dollars paid out over one year and seven hundred thirty-two thousand dollars paid out over one year. Each ticket in game number eleven shall be imprinted in such a way that prize awards from the set listed above may be won.

(C) Price of tickets. The price of a ticket issued by the commission in game number eleven shall be five dollars.

(D) Structure, nature and value of prize awards.

(1) There shall be one type of prize in game number eleven called a "regular prize award."
