(B) A participant who violates the terms of the Ohio VEP at a video lottery facility agrees to surrender to the Ohio lottery commission any money or thing of value the individual has converted or attempted to convert into a wagering instrument, and any prize won, claimed, or attempted to be claimed, at the excluded facility.
