Ohio Laws and Rules

(A) Title and term. Ohio lottery commission game number thirty-one, "S.U.V. & Cash," 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 ticket allocated to them during the period in game number thirty-one.

(B) General design.

(1) Game number thirty-one is a number match game generally known as an "instant lottery."

(2) Holders of valid tickets will remove the covering of the entire play area. If the player matches any one or more of "your number(s)" to either of the two "S.U.V. number(s)," the player wins the prize shown below the matching "your number(s)." If the prize revealed below the matching "your number" is an "S.U.V." symbol, the player wins a 2000 GMC Jimmy(R)or equivalent thereof. There are ten chances to win on each ticket. If the player reveals a "win all" symbol below any of "your number(s)," the player wins all ten prizes automatically.

(3) As used in this rule, "prize award" shall mean one of the following monetary amounts which is the total of all winning prize values appearing on the ticket: two dollars, four dollars, five dollars, ten dollars, fifteen dollars, thirty dollars, seventy-five dollars, two hundred fifty dollars, one thousand dollars, four thousand dollars and a sports utility vehicle ("S.U.V.") which shall be a 2000 GMC Jimmy(R)valued at approximately forty-four thousand dollars. Each ticket in game number thirty-one shall be imprinted in such a way that prize awards from the set listed above may be won.

(4) With respect to any "S.U.V." won as a prize award, the Ohio lottery will pay the federal income tax withholding and the state income tax withholding on behalf of each winner of a 2000 GMC Jimmy(R)or equivalent thereof. All prize winners of an "S.U.V." will be responsible for paying the state and local sales taxes on the prize. No cash alternative will be offered in lieu of the "S.U.V."

(C) Price of tickets. The price of a ticket issued by the commission in game number thirty-one shall be two dollars.

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

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

(2) The only "prize values" which shall appear on a ticket in game number thirty-one are: one dollar, two dollars, four dollars, five dollars, ten dollars, twenty dollars, fifty dollars, one hundred dollars, five hundred dollars, one thousand dollars and an "S.U.V." Prize values shall be concealed by an opaque covering which may be scratched off by the holder of the ticket to reveal the underlying prize value.

(2) When a ticket issued in game number thirty-one is sold or deemed sold in accordance with this rule and the covering material over any of the numbers has been removed, the holder shall be deemed to have drawn the numbers on that ticket which determine whether the holder is entitled to a regular prize award.

(H) Validity of tickets.

(1) A mechanical error in printing prize awards, symbols, words or other numbers on a ticket shall not automatically invalidate that ticket. To the extent feasible, the director shall establish procedures by which the holder of any ticket on which information is incorrectly printed due to mechanical malfunction may be advised of correct information for the ticket. If it is not technically feasible to recover the information from a mechanically misprinted ticket, the director may declare the ticket void and the holder shall be entitled to a return of the ticket price or a replacement ticket of comparable price.

(2) In addition to, but not in limitation of, all other power and authority conferred on the director by the commission's rules, the rector may declare a ticket in game number thirty-one void if it is stolen, unissued, deactivated, not sold or deemed not sold in accordance with commission rules; if it is illegible, mutilated, altered, counterfeit, misregistered, reconstituted, miscut, defective, printed, or produced in error or incomplete; or if the ticket fails any of the validation tests or procedures established by the director. The commission's liability and responsibility for a ticket declared void, if any, is limited to refund of the retail sales price of the ticket or issuance of a replacement ticket of comparable price.

(I) Director's conduct of game number thirty-one.

(1) The director shall conduct game number forty-one in a manner consistent with the lottery act, the rules of the commission, including without limitation, this rule and the regulations of the director. As deemed necessary or advisable, the director shall adopt management regulations, orders or directives to implement and operate this lottery game. The director shall inform the public of the provisions of this rule and the procedures established pursuant hereto which affect the play of game number forty-one.

(2) Names and definitions of elements of game number thirty-one used in this rule are to be considered generic terms used solely for purposes of this rule. In actual operation, game number thirty-one and these elements may be given names or titles chosen by the commission.
