Each ticket in game number forty-two shall be imprinted in such a way that prize award from the set listed above may be won.

A "bonus area" on the ticket may be scratched to reveal either "no bonus this time" or one of the following factors: 2, 3, 4, 5, 7 or 10. If a numeric factor is revealed, the holder's total prize award shall be the sum of all winning prize values on the ticket multiplied by the factor in the "bonus area." If a numeric factor is not revealed as indicated by "no bonus this time," the holder's total prize award shall be the sum of all winning prize values. There are ten chances to win on each ticket.
