(2) Based upon the numbers drawn in a regular drawing, the prizes of $10, $20, $50, $100, $250 and $500 shall be awarded to the holder of a valid ticket for that drawing as follows:

(a) a prize of $10 if the ticket bears the three-digit number drawn in the area associated with the $10 prize;

(a) In each 1000 drawing, one prize of $1,000 per month until the winner's death, or until an aggregate amount of $400,000 has been paid, whichever occurs later, will be awarded.

Each participant in a millionaire drawing shall win at least $1,000.

(E) Number of Prize Disbursements.

The number of prizes of each possible lesser amount will depend on the number of persons eligible for the particular drawing.

The Commission may modify the prize structure from time to time during the conduct of Game No. 3, provided that the prize structure must comply with the requirements of this Rule and the Lottery Act.

(3) In each millionaire drawing one prize of $1,000,000 will be awarded. The Commission shall determine the exact structure of lesser prizes for the millionaire drawing. The prize structure may be modified by the Commission during the conduct of the game, provided that the prize structure must comply with the requirements of this Rule and of the Lottery Act. The Director may limit the number of participants in any given millionaire drawing to 100.

(F) Frequency of Prize Drawings. A regular drawing will be held each week on a day to be determined by the Director; a 1000 drawing will be held in every week, on a day to be determined by the Director, except the first week of the game; and a millionaire drawing will be held as soon as is practicable after each date on which 100 eligible holders are determined.

(G) Manner of Prize Drawings.

(1) Prize drawings shall be open to the public and, whenever possible, persons eligible to win prizes shall be encouraged to attend and participate. Drawings may be held at the Commission's headquarters, its regional offices or other places throughout the State as the Director determines. The Director shall inform the public as to the time and place of each prize drawing.

(2) All holders of valid tickets for a given regular weekly drawing are eligible to win in that drawing. Prize winners shall claim their prizes won in regular drawings by surrendering their ticket in accordance with the procedures of these Rules.

(4) For every drawing in Game No. 3, the Director will design mechanism for the selection of winners and the awarding of prizes in order that, insofar as is possible, random selection will be achieved.

(H) Director's Conduct of Game No. 3.

(1) The Director shall conduct Game No. 3 in a manner consistent with the Lottery Act, the Rules of the Commission, including without limitation, this Rule 3770:1-7-03, and the Regulations of the Director. As he deems it necessary or advisable, he shall adopt management regulations, orders or directives to implement and operate this lottery game.

(F) Frequency of Prize Drawings.

(1) The random imprinting of target numbers and key numbers on all tickets issued in Game No. 8 shall be accomplished in accordance with the Commission's Rules and procedures authorized thereunder.

(2) When a ticket issued in Game No. 8 is sold or deemed sold in accordance with these Rules, the holder shall be deemed to have drawn the target and key numbers on that ticket which, in turn, determine whether the holder is entitled to a regular prize award or to participate in the jackpot drawing.

(3) One jackpot drawing shall be held after each sales cycle of Game No. 8. The jackpot drawing shall be held on a date to be determined by the Director, which date shall be a reasonable period of time after the last date on which tickets are sold in the related sales cycle of Game No. 8.

(G) Random Ticket Number Drawing.

The holder of a winning ticket in Game No. 8 shall claim his or her prize in accordance with the procedures established pursuant to these Rules; provided that any person who does not file his or her jackpot prize claim within the special claim period established by the Director shall not be eligible to participate in the jackpot drawing, but shall only be eligible to win the minimum jackpot prize of $15,000. The Director shall establish a reasonable special claim period for jackpot drawing eligibility, which shall not be less than two weeks from the last date of ticket sales in a given sales cycle of Game No. 8.

(J) Validity of Tickets.

(1) A mechanical error in printing the play or key 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 the numbers are incorrectly printed due to mechanical malfunction can be advised of the correct numbers for the ticket. If it is not technically feasible to recover the numbers from a mechanically misprinted ticket, and it is possible that the ticket was a winning ticket, the Director may declare the ticket void and the holder shall be entitled to a return of the ticket price or a free replacement ticket if ticket sales are still continuing in that sales cycle.

(2) In addition to, but not in limitation of, all other power and authority conferred on the Director by the Commission Rules, the Director may declare a ticket in Game No. 8 to be void if it has been or is stolen, misprinted, mutilated, torn, illegible, altered or defective in any other manner.

In each succeeding finalist drawing in that cycle, five finalists will be selected, unless there are fewer than five participants in any finalist drawing in which case all participants in said finalist drawing shall be selected as finalists. The number of prizes of $500 awarded to participants not selected as finalists will depend on the number of persons eligible for the particular finalist drawing.

(3) In each finalist prize drawing one first prize, which shall be in an amount not less than $20,000 nor more than $250,000, shall be awarded as follows: the participant who becomes entitled to play for the first prize as provided below in subparagraph (E)(4) shall, in a first prize round, select four prize amounts from a set of twenty-five prize amounts containing one prize amount of $100,000; three prize amounts of $50,000; two prize amounts of $25,000; two prize amounts of $15,000; and seventeen prize amounts of $10,000.

(e) The participant who has selected the largest cumulative total of prize amounts shall be entitled to play for the first prize as described above in paragraph (E)(3). Each of the remaining participants shall win the sum of the prize amounts he or she selected in the three rounds.

(5) The Commission may modify the prize structure of finalist prize drawings from time to time during the conduct of Game No. 9, provided that the prize structure must comply with the requirements of this Rule and the Lottery Act.

(6) In each millionaire drawing one prize of $1,000,000 will be awarded. The Commission shall determine the exact structure of lesser prizes for the millionaire drawings. The prize structure may be modified by the Commission during the conduct of the Game, provided that the prize structure must comply with the requirements of this Rule and the Lottery Act. The director may limit the number of participants in any given millionaire drawing to 100.

(F) Frequency of Prize Drawings.

(1) A regular drawing will be held each week on a day to be determined by the Director; a finalist and a finalist prize drawing will be held in every week, on days to be determined by the Director, provided that no such drawings will be held in the first week, and no finalist prize drawing will be held in the second week, of a given cycle of the Game; and a millionaire drawing will be held as soon as is practicable after each date on which 100 eligible holders are determined.

(2) If holders of valid winning tickets who are eligible to participate in a finalist drawing or a millionaire drawing claim their prizes after the last such drawing of a given cycle of Game No. 9, but otherwise in accordance with the Lottery Act and these Rules, the Director shall adopt procedures to afford such persons the opportunity to participate either in a finalist drawing and, for the finalists there selected, the opportunity to participate in a finalist prize drawing, or the opportunity to participate in a millionaire drawing, as the case may be, under circumstances as similar as is practicable to the circumstances of such drawings held during the applicable cycle of the Game. The winner of the last finalist prize drawing held under this paragraph shall not be entitled to participate in a succeeding finalist prize drawing.

(G) Manner of Prize Drawings.

(1) Prize drawings shall be open to the public and, whenever possible, persons eligible to win prizes shall be encouraged to attend and participate.

Prize winners shall claim their prizes, or their eligibility for a finalist drawing or millionaire drawing, won in regular drawings by surrendering their tickets in accordance with the procedures of these Rules.

(3) At each finalist, finalist prize and millionaire drawing, the participant who wins a given prize shall be selected at random.

(4) All drawings in Game No. 9 will be conducted in accordance with random procedures approved by the Director. For every drawing in Game No. 9, the Director will approve procedures and mechanisms for the selection of winners and the awarding of prizes in order that, insofar as is possible, random selection will be achieved.

(H) Director's Conduct of Game No. 9.

(1) A mechanical error in printing the numbers on a ticket shall not invalidate that ticket. To the extent feasible, the Director shall establish procedures by which the holder of any ticket on which the numbers are incorrectly printed due to mechanical malfunction can be advised of the correct numbers for the ticket. If it is not technically feasible to recover the numbers from a mechanically misprinted ticket, and it is possible that the ticket was a winning ticket, the holder shall be entitled to a return of ticket price or a free ticket for the next regular drawing in the Game, if any.

(2) The Director shall conduct Game No. 9 in a manner consistent with the Lottery Act, the Rules of the Commission, including without limitation this Rule 3770:1-7-09, and the Regulations of the Director. As he deems it necessary or advisable, he shall adopt management regulations, orders or directives to implement and operate this lottery game.

(2) When a ticket issued in Game No. 10 is sold or deemed sold in accordance with these rules, and the covering material over the prize amounts has been removed, the holder shall be deemed to have drawn the prize amounts on that ticket which determine whether the holder is entitled to a regular prize award. All regular prize awards shall be deemed to be announced no later than the last date on which tickets are authorized to be sold in any given sales cycle of Game No. 10.

(3) There shall be one weekly bonus drawing during each week of a given sales cycle of Game No. 10; provided, that, over any such sales cycle, there shall be no more than one such drawing for approximately every 3,600,000 tickets issued and sold in that sales cycle of the game.

The drawing winner shall be called the continuing winner and shall be entitled to participate in the next weekly finalist prize drawing. The remaining finalists shall each win prizes not less than five thousand dollars nor more than ten thousand dollars, the expected average value of which shall be seven thousand five hundred dollars as nearly as practicable.

(b) In each weekly finalist prize drawing in which there is a continuing winner, one of the four finalists shall be selected at random as the drawing semifinal winner. Then either the drawing semifinal winner or the continuing winner shall be selected at random to be the drawing winner.

(i) If the drawing semifinal winner is selected as the drawing winner, he shall become the continuing winner and shall win a prize of twenty-five thousand dollars.

(b) A prize of seventy-five thousand dollars if it is the third consecutive drawing in which he is the drawing winner;

Millionaire finalist selection drawings shall be held at such times during a sales cycle as the director shall determine, and a millionaire drawing shall be held as soon as is practicable after each date during a sales cycle on which one hundred eligible holders are determined.

(2) If holders of valid winning tickets who are eligible to participate in a weekly finalist selection drawing or a millionaire selection drawing claim their eligibility after the last such drawing of a given cycle of game number eleven, but otherwise in accordance with the Lottery Act and these rules, the director shall adopt procedures to afford such persons the opportunity to participate either in a weekly finalist selection drawing and, for the finalists there selected, the opportunity to participate in a weekly finalist prize drawing, or the opportunity to participate in a millionaire selection drawing and for the millionaire finalists there selected, in a millionaire prize drawing, as the case may be, under circumstances as similar as is practicable to the circumstances of such drawings held during the applicable sales cycle of the game.

The director shall inform the public as to the time and place of each prize drawing.

(2) All holders of valid tickets for a given regular drawing are eligible to win in that drawing. Prize winners shall claim their prizes, or their eligibility for a weekly finalist selection drawing or a millionaire selection drawing, won in regular drawings, by surrendering their tickets in accordance with the procedures of these rules.

(3) All drawings in game number eleven will be conducted in accordance with random procedures approved by the director.

(2) Eligibility for such weekly finalist and millionaire selection drawings is expressly conditioned on compliance with the provisions of this rule and the procedures of the director authorized hereunder. The director's procedures governing these drawings shall provide, without limitation, procedures for the submission to the lottery of each entry of a valid winning ticket conferring eligibility; procedures for the identification of the holder of such ticket; procedures for deadlines by which such entries must be received to be eligible for given drawings; procedures for any necessary special validation; procedures for the transmittal to the state lottery by sales agents of tickets conferring eligibility; procedures for the claim and surrender of such tickets at lottery offices; and procedures governing all other matters which he may deem necessary or advisable consistent with the provisions of these rules.

(3) As to tickets transmitted by any means for entry into weekly finalist and millionaire selection drawings, whether surrendered to sales agents or otherwise transmitted, all risk of loss in transit arising from any source shall be borne by the holders of such tickets, regardless of any negligence, misfeasance or nonfeasance on the part of any lottery sales agent or any bank providing safekeeping and depository services to the lottery, or by any lottery employee. The commission shall have no responsibility or liability as to any such tickets lost or damaged in transit or otherwise not actually received at lottery headquarters in Cleveland. All such tickets must pass all validation tests before their holders may become eligible for a weekly bonus drawing or the grand drawing.

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 can be advised of the correct information for the ticket. If it is not technically feasible to recover the information from a mechanically misprinted ticket, and it is possible that the ticket was a winning ticket, the director may declare the ticket void and the holder shall be entitled to a return of the ticket price or a free replacement ticket if ticket sales are still continuing in that sales cycle.

(J) Director's conduct of game number eleven.

(1) The director shall conduct game number eleven in a manner consistent with the Lottery Act, the rules of the commission, including without limitation, this rule, 3770:1-7-11 of the Administrative Code, and the regulations of the director.

(2) In addition to, but not in limitation of, all other power and authority conferred on the director by the commission's rules, the director may declare a ticket in game number fourteen to be void if it is stolen, unissued, not sold or not deemed sold in accordance with commission rules; if it is illegible, mutilated, altered, counterfeit, misregistered, reconstituted, miscut, defective, printed or produced in error, or incomplete; if other than exactly one prize amount appears in each of the six locations on the ticket; or if the ticket fails any of the validation tests or procedures established by the director pursuant hereto.

3770:1-7-15 Ohio lottery commission game number fifteen.

(A) Title and term. Ohio lottery commission game number fifteen shall be conducted at such times and for such periods as the commission may determine. For the purposes of this rule, "sales cycle" shall mean any such period beginning on the date when ticket sales are commenced, and continuing through the date on which such sales are terminated, by the commission.

(B) General design.

(1) Game number fifteen will be a number-match lottery game.

(2) A ticket in game number fifteen shall consist of two detachable portions, one called the "main ticket" and the other called the "stub ticket." Neither portion of a ticket may be sold separately; however, once a ticket is sold or deemed sold in accordance with these rules, the main ticket and the stub ticket shall each have all the characteristics of a ticket as that term is defined for the purposes of these rules and the regulations of the director.

(3) There will be five types of drawings associated with the main ticket to be called regular drawings, weekly finalist selection drawings, weekly finalist prize drawings, millionaire finalist selection drawings, and millionaire prize drawings, respectively.

(4) There will be one type of drawing associated with the stub ticket to be called a regular stub drawing. During each week of the game a regular stub drawing will be conducted at which one six-digit number shall be selected at random from the set of all such numbers.

(5) During each week of the game a regular drawing will be conducted at which one one-digit number; one two-digit number; and one three-digit number shall be selected at random from the sets of all such numbers. Holders of valid tickets for a given regular drawing bearing any of the numbers drawn in that drawing shall be entitled to a prize award or eligibility for a weekly finalist selection drawing or a millionaire finalist selection drawing in accordance with this rule.

(6) A drawing of numbers in another commission game may serve as the regular drawing in this game.

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

(1) The main ticket shall bear one one-digit number in an area designated the "first area"; one two-digit number in an area designated the "second area"; and one three-digit number in an area designated the "third area."

(2) Based upon the numbers drawn in each regular drawing, the prizes of five dollars, ten dollars, one hundred dollars, one thousand dollars, and ten thousand dollars shall be awarded to the holders of valid tickets for that drawing as follows:

(a) A prize of five dollars if the ticket bears the two-digit number drawn in the second area;

(c) A prize of ten dollars if the ticket bears the one-digit number drawn in the first area and the two-digit number drawn in the second area;

(3) Holders of valid tickets for a regular drawing which bear the one-digit number drawn in the first area, and who comply with all applicable provisions of this rule, shall be eligible to participate in a weekly finalist selection drawing. In each weekly finalist selection drawing, four weekly finalists shall be selected at random from the participants in that drawing. The number of participants in the weekly finalist selection drawings will vary depending upon the volume of tickets sold and the number of valid tickets received by the lottery conferring eligibility on their holders to participate in such drawings. Participants in weekly finalist selection drawings who are not selected as weekly finalists shall be eligible to participate in a millionaire finalist selection drawing.

(4) In each weekly finalist prize drawing, one first prize shall be awarded which shall be in one of the following amounts: twenty-five thousand dollars; fifty thousand dollars; seventy-five thousand dollars; one hundred fifty thousand dollars; or two hundred thousand dollars. The exact amount of this prize in each such drawing shall be determined in accordance with the provisions of this rule. Depending on the number of weekly finalists in the particular drawing, three or four additional prizes shall be awarded each to be in the amount not less than five thousand dollars nor more than ten thousand dollars.

(5) In each millionaire finalist selection drawing, a number of millionaire finalists shall be selected in order that, as nearly as is practicable, two such finalists are selected for every one million tickets sold in the game. Participants in weekly and millionaire finalist selection drawings who are not selected as finalists shall not receive a prize award. In each millionaire prize drawing, one prize of one million dollars will be awarded, and additional prizes in the amounts of one hundred thousand dollars, fifty thousand dollars, ten thousand dollars, two thousand dollars, and one thousand dollars may be awarded. Each millionaire finalist in a millionaire prize drawing shall win at least one thousand dollars.

(6) The stub shall bear two distinct six-digit numbers.

(7) Based upon the numbers drawn in each regular stub drawing, a prize as provided in this paragraph shall be awarded to each holder of a valid stub ticket for that drawing which bears the six-digit number drawn. Each such prize shall be a combination of a luxury automobile to be specified by the commission and a monetary prize to be specified by the commission. The monetary prize shall consist of a monetary amount of at least one thousand dollars to be paid directly to the winning holder and all amounts required to be paid as withholding of federal income taxes pursuant to the Internal Revenue Code of 1954, as amended, in respect of such prize. The aggregate cost of such prize, which is comprised of the total cost of providing such automobile plus the total monetary prize, shall not be less than eighteen thousand dollars, and the aggregate cost of such prize may exceed eighteen thousand dollars only to the extent necessary to pay directly to the winning holder at least one thousand dollars and to pay all amounts required to be paid as withholding of federal income taxes pursuant to the Internal Revenue Code of 1954, as amended, in respect of such prize.

(8) The commission may specify under the prize structure described in paragraph (D)(7) of this rule that the winner of any prize including a luxury automobile may elect to receive the cost to the commission of such automobile instead of receiving the automobile itself.

(E) Number of prize awards.

(1) The number of prize awards in any regular drawing will depend on the number of tickets actually sold for that drawing. Tickets shall be printed using random techniques in order that:

(a) The possible numbers specified in this rule are randomly distributed throughout all the tickets printed in any given ticket issuance; and

(b) Mathematical reasoning indicates that, over a sufficiently large number of weeks, the average number of winning tickets in the regular drawings per one million tickets sold is as follows:

(a) In the first weekly finalist prize drawing in any sales cycle, and in any subsequent weekly finalist prize drawing in that cycle in which there is no continuing winner, as defined below, one of the four finalists shall be selected as the drawing winner and shall win an initial prize award of twenty-five thousand dollars. The drawing winner shall be called the continuing winner and shall be entitled to participate in the next weekly finalist prize drawing. The remaining finalists shall each win prizes not less than five thousand dollars nor more than ten thousand dollars, the expected average value of which shall be seven thousand five hundred dollars as nearly as practicable.

(b) In each weekly finalist prize drawing in which there is a continuing winner, one of the four finalists shall be selected at random as the drawing semifinal winner. Then either the drawing semifinal winner or the continuing winner shall be selected at random to be the drawing winner.

(i) If the drawing semifinal winner is selected as the drawing winner, he shall become the continuing winner and shall win a prize of twenty-five thousand dollars.

(ii) If the continuing winner is selected to be the drawing winner, the drawing semifinal winner shall receive a prize of ten thousand dollars, the continuing winner shall remain as continuing winner, and the continuing winner shall receive an additional prize award as follows:

(a) A prize of fifty thousand dollars if it is the second consecutive drawing in which he is the drawing winner;

(b) A prize of seventy-five thousand dollars if it is the third consecutive drawing in which he is the drawing winner;

(c) A prize of one hundred thousand dollars if it is the fourth consecutive drawing in which he is the drawing winner; and

(d) A prize of two hundred thousand dollars if it is the fifth consecutive drawing in which he is the drawing winner.

(iii) Those finalists not selected as the semifinal drawing winner shall each receive a prize award not less than five thousand dollars nor more than ten thousand dollars, the expected average value of which shall be seven thousand five hundred dollars as nearly as practicable.

(c) A given continuing winner may only return in four successive weekly finalist prize drawings; that is, he may not be the drawing winner in more than five consecutive drawings.

(d) Each continuing winner shall be deemed to win a single prize award equal to the total of the initial prize and the additional prizes won. The maximum prize which a continuing winner can win in consecutive weekly finalist prize drawings is five hundred thousand dollars.

(3) The commission may modify the prize structure of finalist prize drawings from time to time during the conduct of game number fifteen, provided that the prize structure must comply with the requirements of this rule and the Lottery Act.

(4) In each millionaire drawing one prize of one million dollars will be awarded. The commission shall determine the exact structure of lesser prizes for the millionaire drawings. The prize structure may be modified by the commission during the conduct of the game, provided that the prize structure must comply with the requirements of this rule and the Lottery Act. The director may limit the number of participants in any given millionaire drawing to one hundred.

(5) The number of prize awards in any regular stub drawing will depend on the number of stub tickets actually sold for that drawing. Stub tickets shall be printed using random techniques in order that:

(a) The possible numbers specified in this rule are randomly distributed throughout all the tickets printed in any given ticket issuance; and

(b) Mathematical reasoning indicates that, over a sufficiently large number of weeks, the average number of winning stub tickets in the regular stub drawings per one million tickets sold will be two.

(F) Frequency of prize drawings.

(1) A regular drawing shall be held each week on a day to be determined by the director; a weekly finalist selection and a weekly finalist prize drawing shall be held in every week, on days to be determined by the director, provided that no such drawings will be held in the first week, and no weekly finalist prize drawing will be held in the second week of a given sales cycle of the game. Millionaire finalist selection drawings shall be held at such times during a sales cycle as the director shall determine, and a millionaire drawing shall be held as soon as is practicable after each date during a sales cycle on which one hundred eligible holders are determined.

(2) If holders of valid winning tickets who are eligible to participate in a weekly finalist selection drawing or a millionaire selection drawing claim their eligibility after the last such drawing of a given cycle of game number fifteen, but otherwise in accordance with these rules and the Lottery Act, the director shall adopt procedures to afford such persons the opportunity to participate either in a weekly finalist selection drawing and, for the finalists there selected, the opportunity to participate in a weekly finalist prize drawing, or the opportunity to participate in a millionaire selection drawing and, for the millionaire finalists there selected, the opportunity to participate in a millionaire prize drawing, as the case may be, under circumstances as similar as is practicable to the circumstances of such drawings held during the applicable sales cycle of the game. The drawing winner of the last weekly finalist prize drawing held under this paragraph shall not be entitled to participate in a succeeding weekly finalist prize drawing.

(3) A regular stub drawing shall be held each week on a day to be determined by the director.

(G) Manner of prize drawings.

(1) Prize drawings shall be open to the public and, whenever possible, persons eligible to win prizes shall be encouraged to attend and participate.

The director shall inform the public as to the time and place of each prize drawing.

(2) All holders of valid tickets for a given regular drawing are eligible to win in that drawing. Prize winners shall claim their prizes, or their eligibility for a weekly finalist selection drawing or a millionaire selection drawing, won in regular drawings, by surrendering their tickets in accordance with the procedures of these rules.

(3) All drawings in game number fifteen will be conducted in accordance with random procedures approved by the director. For every drawing in game number fifteen, the director will approve procedures and mechanisms for the selection of winners and the awarding of prizes in order that, insofar as is possible, random selection will be achieved.

(H) Special claim, entry, receipt and validation procedures.

(1) The director shall establish special entry, claim, receipt and validation procedures governing eligibility for, and participation in, weekly finalist selection drawings and millionaire selection drawings.

All regular prizes shall be deemed to be announced no later than the last day of the sales cycle of game number eighteen in which the ticket was sold.

(3) There shall be bonus pot drawings during a given sales cycle of game number eighteen and such drawings as necessary after the end of the sales cycle in order to have one such drawing for each week of the sales cycle; provided that in connection with any sales cycle, there shall be no more than one such drawing for approximately every three million eight hundred thousand tickets issued and sold in that sales cycle of the game. The final such drawing shall be held on a date to be determined and announced by the director, which date shall be a reasonable time after the date established by the commission as the end of the sales cycle.

(4) One grand drawing shall be held after each sales cycle of game number eighteen. The grand drawing shall be held on a date to be determined and announced by the director, which date shall be a reasonable period of time after the date established by the commission as the end of the sales cycle.

Drawings will be held at the discretion of the director wherein three, twelve ticket serial numbers shall be drawn.

A prize pool shall accumulate by allocating one million dollars per month from the gross sales in game number one hundred.

(3) For each ticket bearing a selection which matches five, and only five, of the six integers drawn, a prize pool shall equal two and seventy-five hundredths per cent of gross sales for that drawing, divided by the number of winning selections validated by the on-line computer system, rounded to the next lowest whole dollar amount.

(4) For each ticket bearing a selection which matches all six integers drawn, the prize pool to be paid shall be equal to the amount designated by the director (hereinafter "jackpot"). The director shall designate and certify the amount of the jackpot for each drawing in writing prior to each drawing.

In any event, the director shall have discretion to change the prizes and percentages which represent the prize pools in each of the categories referred to in paragraphs (E)(1) to (E)(4) of this rule.

(5) The minimum total jackpot amount in any jackpot for which at least one ticket bears a winning selection which matches six of the six integers drawn, as validated by the on-line computer system, shall be one million dollars, and shall be divided equally among the winning selections if there is more than one winning selection. The director may set the jackpot at levels higher than the minimum amount in accordance with paragraph (E)(4) of this rule.

(6) Any amounts remaining in the prize pools described in paragraphs (E)(1) to (E)(4) of this rule after any given drawing, due to residual amounts after prize disbursement, shall be retained by the commission.

(7) When there are no winning tickets issued for the prize pool described in paragraph (E)(4) of this rule, the director shall, in accordance with paragraph (E)(4) of this rule, establish what amounts from such prize pool shall be carried forward into the jackpot for the next drawing.

(F) Frequency of prize drawings. Drawings shall be held at times determined by the director.

(G) Manner of prize drawings.

(1) Prize drawings shall be open to the public and may be held at such places in the state that the director shall determine. The director shall inform the public as to the time and place of each prize drawing.

(2) All holders of valid tickets for a given drawing are eligible to win in that drawing. If the holder of a winning ticket does not have the ticket fully validated and the prize is not claimed and presented for payment within one hundred eighty days after the date of the drawing, in accordance with the procedures set forth in lottery rules, such unclaimed prize shall be paid into the unclaimed prize fund pursuant to section 3770.07 of the Revised Code.

(3) All drawings in game number one hundred will be conducted in accordance with random procedures approved by the director. For every drawing in game number one hundred, the director will approve procedures and mechanisms for the selection of winners and the awarding of prizes in order that random selection by the on-line computer system will be achieved.

(H) Validity of tickets.

(1) Each purchaser of tickets in game number one hundred shall be responsible for verifying that the number imprinted on such tickets are those requested, that the purchase price paid is the price recorded on such ticket, and that such ticket has recorded thereon the type of bet(s), the manner of payment of the prize award, and the drawing date(s) therefor that the purchaser desired to make. The Ohio lottery commission shall be free of any liability in connection with this paragraph.

(2) Each ticket issued in game number one hundred shall have imprinted thereon at the time of purchase a control number, bar code data, or both, supplied by the commission. No prize shall be paid by the commission for any tickets without such control number or bar code data.

(3) All winning tickets in game number one hundred are subject to validation by the on-line computer system under procedures established by the director before the payment of any prize.

(4) In addition to, but not in limitation of, all other power and authority conferred on the director by the commission's rules, the director may declare a ticket in game number one hundred void if it is stolen, not sold or deemed not sold in accordance with commission rules; if it is illegible, altered, or counterfeit; 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.

(5) For the purpose of determining the number of winning wagers, division of the jackpot is contingent on the on-line computer system's determination of winning wagers sold, and not by the number of winning tickets presented for payment.

(I) Choice of annual payments or the cash option.

(1) Because the advertised super lotto 6/47 jackpot is payable over twenty-six years, jackpot prizes from game number one hundred are payable in twenty-six equal annual installments, less the appropriately withheld state and federal income taxes as required by law. As dictated by the interest rate set by the treasurer of state, the lottery transfers to the deferred prize trust fund an amount of cash determined by the director which equals the present value of the gross prize award won in a drawing to supply investment principal for funding long-term prize obligations, less the amount determined to be payable to the winner as a first annual installment. This present value transfer is less than the advertised jackpot.

(2) At the time of purchase, players may choose the cash option and, should they become winners of the jackpot, receive their jackpot prize award in an amount equal to the discounted present cash value of the prize, less the appropriately withheld state and federal income taxes, instead of in twenty-six annual installments. The discounted present cash value of a jackpot amount shall be determined by the director based on the formula established by the director pursuant to authority granted under rule 3770:1-8-04 of the Administrative Code.

(3) Jackpot prize winners who did not choose the cash option at the time of purchase shall have an additional sixty calendar days from the date of the presentation for payment of their valid claim to the lottery to choose the cash option. Notice of such selection must be received by the lottery or post office stamped by the end of the sixty calendar day deadline. Such option, once chosen, may not be revoked. If no selection is made during the allowed time period, the prize winner shall be paid in twenty-six annual installments as provided for herein.

(4) A single winning super lotto 6/47 jackpot ticket may be paid pursuant to these rules in either annual installments or in a discounted present value lump sum. Prize winners who claim a joint prize from a single winning ticket will all receive prize payments in either annual installments or in a discounted present value lump sum. Prize winners who claim a joint prize from a single winning ticket may not opt to receive different forms of payment.

(J) Director's conduct of game number one hundred.

(1) The director shall conduct game number one hundred 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.

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

(3) Should the director determine that drawings conducted pursuant to game number one hundred are to be discontinued, the director has the discretion to transfer any existing funds from the game number one hundred jackpot that was not won before such drawings were discontinued, to any lottery game containing the similar characteristic of requiring the player to correctly select the six drawn integers to win the jackpot prize.

(4) The director shall have discretion to combine existing or future games for promotional purposes in order to increase revenues and to create a different payment structure for prizes to be paid if games are combined, and to authorize any funding mechanism deemed necessary to accomplish payment of any prize pool.
