"The Kicker" is available only to "Classic Lotto" players in Ohio, featuring a single six-digit computer-generated number from 000000 to 999999 printed on a "Classic Lotto" ticket. If a player elects "The Kicker" option, the words "Kicker Yes" will be printed on the player's ticket. "The Kicker" number will be printed on the player's ticket if it is elected or not. However, the player may only win "The Kicker" if it is elected and the ticket reflects the "Kicker Yes" message.

(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 state lottery fund and distributed in accordance with section 3770.06 of the Revised Code.

(3) All drawings in game rule number fifty-three will be conducted in accordance with random procedures approved 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 gaming computer system's determination of winning wagers sold, and not by the number of winning tickets presented for payment.

(I) Annual payments or the cash option.

(1) Because the advertised Classic Lotto jackpot is payable over thirty years, jackpot prizes from game rule number fifty-three are payable in thirty annual installment payments, less the appropriately withheld state and federal income taxes or other withholdings as required by law. The first and/or last payment may not be equal to the remaining annual payments, however, the total thirty annual payments shall not be less than the jackpot prize award won, less state and federal income tax withholdings or any other withholdings required by law.

(2) Upon completion of internal validation and claiming procedures established by the lottery, at the time a valid claim is presented for payment of the grand prize jackpot, the estimated cash option prize amount along with the amount of appropriately withheld state and federal income taxes shall be disclosed in writing to the prize winner. Commencing with the date of presentment of a valid winning grand prize jackpot ticket, and for sixty calendar days thereafter, claimants may choose the cash option value instead of thirty annual installment payments. 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 thirty annual installment payments as provided for herein. The discounted cash value of a jackpot amount shall be determined by the director based on a formula established pursuant to authority granted under rule 3770:1-8-04 of the Administrative Code.

(3) A single winning Classic Lotto jackpot ticket may be paid pursuant to these rules in either thirty annual installments or in a discounted cash value lump sum ("cash option"). Prize winners who claim a joint prize from a single winning ticket will all receive prize payments in either thirty annual installments or in a discounted cash 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 rule number fifty-three.

(1) The director shall conduct game rule number fifty-three in a manner consistent with the Lottery Act, the rules of the commission, including without limitation this rule, and the regulations of the director.

(3) Should the director determine that drawings conducted pursuant to game rule number fifty-three are to be discontinued, the director has the discretion to transfer any existing funds from the game rule number fifty-three jackpot that was not won before such drawings were discontinued, to any lottery game or to allocate the entire or partial funds to the lower tiered prizes.

(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.

(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: twenty dollars, twenty-five dollars, thirty dollars, forty dollars, fifty dollars, one hundred dollars, two hundred dollars, five hundred dollars, one thousand dollars, two thousand dollars, ten thousand dollars, an "Annuity Prize Award" of forty thousand dollars per year for twenty-five years before taxes or the "Elected Cash-Option Prize Award" of approximately five hundred thousand dollars before taxes in lieu of the "Annuity Prize Award," an "Annuity Prize Award" of eighty thousand dollars per year for twenty-five years before taxes or the "Elected Cash-Option Prize Award" of approximately one million dollars before taxes in lieu of the "Annuity Prize Award," and an "Annuity Prize Award" of two hundred thousand dollars per year for twenty-five years before taxes or the "Elected Cash-Option Prize Award" of approximately two million, five hundred thousand dollars before taxes in lieu of the "Annuity Prize Award." Each ticket in game rule number four hundred sixty-one shall be imprinted in such a way that prize awards from the set listed above may be won.

(E) Number of prize awards. The number of prize awards in any sales cycle of game rule number four hundred sixty-one will depend upon the number of tickets sold during that cycle. However, distribution and availability for public purchase may be affected by, but not limited to, circumstances such as stolen, defective, missing, damaged, promotional, returned or reordered tickets. Tickets shall be printed in accordance with this rule using random techniques in order that the following occur:

(1) Combinations winning each prize award are randomly distributed throughout all tickets printed in any given ticket issuance; and

(2) For each line in column one of the appendix to this rule, except lines fifty-eight, fifty-nine and sixty, the player having the prize value and multiplier, if any, on that same line in column three shall win the prize award on that same line in column four. A player having the prize value set forth on lines fifty-eight, fifty-nine and sixty, column three of the appendix to this rule shall win either the "Annuity Prize Award" or the "Elected Cash-Option Prize Award." The amounts set forth on lines fifty-eight, fifty-nine and sixty in column four represent the estimated cost of annuity investment, at time of game development, to fund the "Annuity Prize Award." In a pool of seven million tickets sold, mathematical reasoning suggests that the number of tickets having the prize value and multiplier, if any, on a given line in column three should be as set forth on that same line in column five.

(F) Tickets sold. Chances of winning and the number of winning tickets are established at the time of printing and will change as prizes are won.

(G) Frequency of prize drawings.

(1) Random imprinting of prize awards on all tickets issued in game rule number four hundred sixty-one shall be accomplished in a manner that complies with the commission's rules and procedures.

(2) When a ticket issued in game rule number four hundred sixty-one is sold or deemed sold in accordance with this rule, and the covering material over any of the numbers, prize values and play symbols has been removed, the holder shall be deemed to have drawn the numbers, prize values and play symbols on that ticket, which determine whether the holder is entitled to a regular prize award. All regular prize awards shall be deemed announced no later than the last day of the sales cycle of game rule number four hundred sixty-one in which the ticket was sold.

(H) Special claim, entry, receipt and validation procedures. The director shall establish special claim, entry, receipt and validation procedures, including procedures for validation by sales agents of tickets winning prize awards, which are to be paid by sales agents in accordance with commission rules. Prize awards shall be claimed within the time limits set forth by commission rules.

(I) 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 director may declare a ticket in game rule number four hundred sixty-one void if it is stolen, 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; if the ticket fails any of the validation tests or procedures established by the director; or if the ticket is obtained in violation of commission rules, including, but not limited to, by way of prize discounting prohibited under rule 3770-3-01 of the Administrative Code. 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.

(J) Director's conduct of game rule number four hundred sixty-one.

(1) The director shall conduct game rule number four hundred sixty-one, and any promotions associated therewith, in a manner consistent with the Lottery Act and the rules of the commission including, without limitation, this rule.

For the purposes 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 sales agents are to make their final settlement with respect to tickets allocated to them during the period in game rule number seven hundred two.

(B) General design.

(1) Game rule number seven hundred two is a key number match game and is generally known as an "instant lottery."

(2) Holders of valid tickets will remove the covering over the entire play area to reveal four "Monopoly Numbers," fifteen "Your Numbers" and fifteen corresponding prize amounts. If the player matches one or more of the "Monopoly Numbers" to one or more of "Your Numbers," the player wins the corresponding prize amount(s). If the player reveals a "Train" symbol, the player wins the prize automatically. If the player reveals a "Mr. Monopoly" symbol, the player wins one hundred twenty thousand dollars per year for the winner's natural life, but not less than twenty years, before taxes or the "Elected Cash-Option Prize Award" of approximately one million two hundred thousand dollars before taxes in lieu of the "Annuity Prize Award." Should the prize winner of the one hundred twenty thousand dollar per year for the winner's natural life, but not less than twenty years, before taxes, be claimed by more than one prize winner, the applicants will only be entitled to the shared Cash-Option Prize Award", There are fifteen chances to win on each ticket, and a player may win up to fifteen times on one ticket.

(3) The only "prize values" which shall appear on a ticket in game rule number seven hundred two are: five dollars, ten dollars, fifteen dollars, twenty dollars, twenty-five dollars, forty dollars, fifty dollars, one hundred dollars, two hundred dollars, five hundred dollars, one thousand dollars, five thousand dollars, and the "Mr. Monopoly" symbol corresponding to a prize value of one hundred twenty thousand dollars per year for the winner's natural life, but not less than twenty years, before taxes or the "Elected Cash-Option Prize Award" of approximately one million two hundred thousand dollars before taxes in lieu of the "Annuity Prize Award." Numbers, prize values and play symbols appearing on any ticket in game rule number seven hundred two shall be concealed by an opaque covering which may be scratched off by the holder of the ticket to reveal the underlying numbers, prize values and play symbols.

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

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

(1) There shall be one type of prize in game rule seven hundred two, a "prize award."

(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 dollars, twenty-five dollars, forty dollars, fifty dollars, one hundred dollars, two hundred dollars, five hundred dollars, one thousand dollars, five thousand dollars, and the "Mr. Monopoly" symbol corresponding to an "Annuity Prize Award" of one hundred twenty thousand dollars per year for the winner's natural life, but not less than twenty years or the "Elected Cash-Option Prize Award" of approximately one million two hundred thousand dollars before taxes in lieu of the "Annuity Prize Award." Each ticket in game rule number seven hundred two shall be imprinted in such a way that prize awards from the set listed above may be won.

(E) Number of prize awards. The number of prize awards in any sales cycle of game rule number seven hundred two depend upon the number of tickets sold during that cycle. However, distribution and availability for public purchase may be affected by, but not limited to, circumstances such as stolen, defective, missing, damaged, promotional, returned or partial reordered tickets. Tickets shall be printed in accordance with this rule using random techniques in order that the following occur:

(1) Combinations winning each prize award are randomly distributed throughout all tickets printed in any given ticket issuance; and

(2) For each line in column one of the appendix to this rule, except line thirty-seven, the player having the prize value and multiplier, if any, on that same line in column three shall win the prize award on that same line in column four. A player having the prize value set forth on line thirty-seven, of column three of the appendix to this rule shall win either the "Annuity Prize Award" or the "Elected Cash-Option Prize Award." The amount set forth on line thirty-seven in column four represents the estimated cost of annuity investment, at time of game development, to fund the "Annuity Prize Award." In a pool of ten million tickets sold, mathematical reasoning suggests that the number of tickets having the prize value and multiplier, if any, in column three should be as set forth on that same line in column five.

(F) Tickets sold. Chances of winning and the number of winning tickets are established at the time of printing and will change as prizes are won.

(G) Frequency of prize drawings.

(1) Random imprinting of prize awards on all tickets issued in game rule number seven hundred two shall be accomplished in a manner, which complies with the commission's rules and procedures.

(2) When a ticket issued in game rule number seven hundred two is sold or deemed sold in accordance with this rule and the covering material over any of the numbers, prize values and play symbols has been removed, the holder shall be deemed to have drawn the numbers, prize values and play symbols on that ticket which determine whether the holder is entitled to a prize award. All prize awards shall be deemed announced no later than the last day of the sales cycle of game rule number seven hundred two in which the ticket was sold.

(H) Special claim, entry, receipt and validation procedures. The director shall establish special claim, entry, receipt and validation procedures, including procedures for validation by sales agents of tickets winning prize awards which are to be paid by sales agents in accordance with commission rules. Prize awards shall be claimed within the time limits set forth by commission rules.

(I) 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 director may declare a ticket in game rule number seven hundred two 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 or if the ticket is obtained in violation of commission rules, including, but not limited to, by way of prize discounting, prohibited under rule 3770-3-01 of the Administrative Code.

The player will then scratch off each letter in the "Cashword Puzzle" play area that matches "Your Letters." To win a prize award, the player must uncover three or more horizontal or vertical words using "Your Letters." The prize amount won is determined by comparing the number of uncovered words in the "Cashword Puzzle" to the corresponding "Prize Legend." Each letter appearing in the "Your 18 Letters" play area may appear more than once in the "Cashword Puzzle" play area. Each "Word" must contain at least three of "Your Letters."

Rule 3770:1-9-807 | Game rule eight hundred seven.
 

(A) Title and term. Ohio Lottery Commission game rule number eight hundred seven, "Psychedelic Payout" 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, 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 sales agents are to make their final settlement with respect to tickets allocated to them during the period in game rule number eight hundred seven.

(B) General design.

(1) Game rule number eight hundred seven is a key number match game and is generally known as an "instant lottery."

(2) Holders of valid tickets will remove the covering over the entire play area on the front and back of the ticket. The front and back of each ticket plays separately. On the front of the ticket the player will reveal six "Winning Numbers," twenty "Your Numbers," and twenty corresponding prize amounts. If the player matches one or more of "Your Numbers" to one or more of the "Winning Numbers," the player wins the corresponding prize amount automatically. If the player reveals a "Sunglasses" symbol the player wins that prize shown automatically. If the player reveals a "10X" symbol, the player wins ten times the prize shown. If the player reveals a "20X" symbol, the player wins twenty times the prize shown. If the player reveals a "Payout" symbol, the player wins all twenty prizes shown automatically. On the back of the ticket the player will reveal ten "Extra Groovy Play!" bonus spots. If the player reveals a "$20," "$50," "$100," or "$500" prize amount in any one of the "Extra Groovy Play" bonus spots, the player wins the prize shown automatically. There are thirty chances to win on each ticket, and a player can win up to thirty times on one ticket.

(3) The only "prize values," which shall appear on a ticket in game rule number eight hundred seven are: five dollars, ten dollars, fifteen dollars, twenty dollars, twenty-five dollars, fifty dollars, one hundred dollars, two hundred fifty dollars, five hundred dollars, one thousand dollars, two thousand five hundred dollars, ten thousand dollars, and five hundred thousand dollars. Numbers, prize values and play symbols appearing on any ticket in game rule number eight hundred seven shall be concealed by an opaque covering, which may be scratched off by the holder of the ticket to reveal the underlying numbers, prize values and play symbols.

(C) Price of tickets. The price of a ticket issued by the commission in game rule number eight hundred seven shall be ten dollars.

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

Each ticket in game rule number eight hundred seven shall be imprinted in such a way that prize awards from the set listed above may be won.

(E) The number of prize awards in any sales cycle of game rule number eight hundred seven will depend upon the number of tickets sold during that cycle. However, distribution and availability for public purchase may be affected by, but not limited to, circumstances such as stolen, defective, missing, damaged, promotional, returned or partial reordered tickets. Tickets shall be printed in accordance with this rule using random techniques.

(1) Combinations winning each prize award are randomly distributed throughout all tickets printed in any given ticket issuance.

(2) For each line in column one of the appendix to this rule, the player having the prize value and multiplier, if any, on that same line in columns three and/or four shall win the prize award on that same line in column five. In a pool of six million tickets sold, mathematical reasoning suggests that the number of tickets having the prize value and multiplier, if any, set forth on a given line in column three and/or four of the appendix to this rule should be as set forth on that same line in column six.

(F) Tickets sold. Chances of winning and the number of winning tickets are established at the time of printing and will change as prizes are won.

(G) Frequency of prize drawings.

(1) Random imprinting of prize awards on all tickets issued in game rule number eight hundred seven shall be accomplished in a manner, which complies with the commission's rules and procedures.

(2) When a ticket issued in game rule number eight hundred seven is sold or deemed sold in accordance with this rule and the covering material over any of the numbers, prize values and play symbols has been removed, the holder shall be deemed to have drawn the numbers, prize values and play symbols on that ticket, which determine whether the holder is entitled to a prize award. All prize awards shall be deemed announced no later than the last day of the sales cycle of game rule number eight hundred seven in which the ticket was sold.

(H) Special claim, entry, receipt and validation procedures. The director shall establish special claim, entry, receipt and validation procedures, including procedures for validation by sales agents of tickets winning prize awards, which are to be paid by sales agents in accordance with commission rules. Prize awards shall be claimed within the time limits set forth by commission rules.

(I) 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 director may declare a ticket in game rule number eight hundred seven void if it is stolen, 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; if the ticket fails any of the validation tests or procedures established by the director; or if the ticket is obtained in violation of commission rules, including, but not limited to, by way of prize discounting prohibited under rule 3770-3-01 of the Administrative Code.

Up to five such panels or play areas may appear on any one ticket in game number nine hundred fifty-eight.

The availability and cost of any "Add-on Game," as defined in this rule, or "Just the Jackpot" shall be determined by the Ohio lottery commission, shall not be included in the cost of the official "Mega Millions" ticket, and shall be subject to the applicable statutes and administrative regulations of the Ohio lottery commission.

(9) For each ticket bearing a selection which matches all five numbers drawn for field one, and matching the one number drawn for field two, the player shall win the "Grand/Jackpot Prize" award which shall be divided equally among the winning selections if there is more than one winning selection. Except as otherwise designated by the directors or their designees, the prize pool to be paid shall be equal to the amount designated by the directors, following the drawing, as the cash "Grand/Jackpot Prize" amount rather than an annuity "Grand/Jackpot Prize" amount. The directors or their designees may advertise estimated cash "Grand/Jackpot Prize" or annuity "Grand/Jackpot Prize" amounts for each drawing. Except as otherwise determined by the directors or their designees, advertised cash or annuity "Grand/Jackpot Prize" amounts are not guaranteed amounts. Except as otherwise determined by the directors or their designees, the cash "Grand/Jackpot Prize" amount designated by the directors or their designees following a drawing shall be the basis for determining the amount to be awarded for each valid winning ticket matching all five of the five winning numbers drawn for field one and one winning number drawn for field two. Advertised cash or annuity "Grand/Jackpot Prize" amounts may be forecasted for each drawing by the directors or their designees based upon expected sales, but, unless the directors or their designees have determined that such advertised amounts are guaranteed amounts, any such amounts forecasted for purposes of advertisement are not guaranteed amounts. In any event, the directors or their designees shall have discretion to change the prizes and percentages which represent the prize pools in each of the categories referred to in paragraphs (D)(1) to (D)(9) of this rule.

(10) The minimum total "Grand/Jackpot Prize" amount in any "Grand/Jackpot" for which at least one ticket bears a winning selection which matches five of the five numbers drawn for field one, and matches one number drawn for field two, as validated by the on-line computer system, shall be an amount designated by the directors or their designees, and shall be divided equally among the holders of the winning tickets if there is more than one winning ticket. If the "Grand/Jackpot Prize" amount that is divided by the number of prize winners matching five winning numbers for field one and one winning number for field two is less than one million dollars, each "Grand/Jackpot Prize" winner shall be paid in a single cash payment in an amount equal to the cash option "Grand/Jackpot Prize" divided equally by the number of "Grand/Jackpot Prize" winners. The directors may set the "Grand/Jackpot Prize" at levels higher than the minimum amount in accordance with paragraph (D)(9) of this rule.

(11) Any amounts remaining in the prize pools described in paragraphs (D)(1) to (D)(8) of this rule after any given drawing, due to residual amounts after prize disbursements, shall be retained by the party lotteries.

(12) When there are no winning tickets issued for the prize pool described in paragraph (D)(9) of this rule, the directors shall carry the prize pool amount forward into the "Grand/Jackpot Prize" for the next consecutive drawing.

(13) When there are no winning tickets issued for the prize pool described in paragraph (D)(9) of this rule, the "Grand/Jackpot Prize" amount shall roll pari-mutuelly based on sales as set by the directors, however, the directors may establish a "Grand/Jackpot Prize" amount higher than that amount.

(14) If the total prize liability for the prize levels described in paragraphs (D)(1) to (D)(8) of this rule exceeds the liability cap agreed upon by the directors, then that liability cap may be enforced for the payment of the prize awards set forth in paragraphs (D)(5) to (D)(8) of this rule. In the event the liability cap is exceeded, then the prizes set forth in paragraphs (D)(5) to (D)(8) of this rule may be paid on a pari-mutuel basis, or in another manner as determined by the directors, rather than fixed prize basis, provided, however, that in no event shall the pari-mutuel prizes or other prizes awarded be greater than the applicable fixed prizes. In the event that the liability cap is exceeded and prizes are paid on a pari-mutual basis, or in another manner as determined by the directors, the amounts used for allocation of such pari-mutuel prizes, or other prizes awarded, for each prize level shall be determined by the directors. If the liability cap is exceeded for a particular drawing, the Ohio director shall make the amount of the liability cap publicly available by means that the Ohio director deems appropriate. For purposes of prize calculation with respect to any game number nine hundred fifty-eight pari-mutuel prize, the calculation shall be rounded down so that prizes shall be paid in multiples of one dollar.

(15) In a single game number nine hundred fifty-eight drawing, a claimant may win in only one prize category per wager as a result of possessing winning numbers selected in either one or both fields of play, and shall be entitled only to the highest prize level won.

(16) Subject to the laws and regulations governing each party lottery, the number of prize categories and the allocation of the prize fund among the prize categories may be changed at the discretion of the directors for promotional purposes. Such change shall be announced by public notice.

(E) In addition to the game described in paragraphs (B) to (D) of this rule, and where applicable in accordance with this rule, a player shall have an option to play "The "Megaplier"." If a player selects the "Megaplier" feature, the words "Megaplier Yes" will be printed on the player's ticket. If a player does not select the "Megaplier" feature, the words ""Megaplier" No" will be printed on the player's ticket.

(1) The cost of every two dollar "Mega Millions" wager will be increased by one dollar if the player purchases "The "Megaplier"" feature.

(2) In connection with the "Megaplier" feature, if said feature is an available feature, for purposes of the prize levels set forth in paragraphs (D)(1) to (D)(7) of this rule, a drawing will occur prior to each "Mega Millions" drawing to select, unless otherwise approved by the director, a multiplier number from one of the following fifteen numbers: two, two, two, two, two, three, three, three, three, three, three, four, four, four, and five. As determined by the director, multiplier numbers other than two, three, four, or five including but not limited to numbers higher than five may be used for promotions. In the event of a winning ticket, the multiplier number selected will only apply to the prize levels set forth in paragraphs (D)(1) to (D)(8) of this rule. The multiplier number selected is not applied to or does not impact the prize award set forth in paragraph (D)(9) of this rule. In the event of a winning ticket, as set forth in paragraph (E)(2)(h) of this rule, purchase of the "Megaplier" feature will increase the regular prize award set forth in paragraph (D)(8) of this rule. Purchase of the "Megaplier" feature will not multiply, increase or impact the "Grand/Jackpot Prize" award set forth in paragraph (D)(9) of this rule. A player who chooses the "Megaplier" feature, shall win the prize awards set forth in this paragraph which shall be in lieu of the prize awards set forth in paragraphs (D)(1) to (D)(8) of this rule, not in addition to the prize awards set forth therein. "Megaplier" does not apply to "Just The Jackpot tickets."

(a) For each ticket bearing a selection which matches none of the five numbers drawn for field one, and matching the one number drawn for field two, and in the event that the player has purchased the "Megaplier" feature and a multiplier number of two is selected, the regular prize award of two dollars shall be multiplied by two and the player shall be entitled to a prize award of four dollars. In the event that the player has purchased the "Megaplier" feature and a multiplier number of three is selected, the regular prize award of two dollars shall be multiplied by three and the player shall be entitled to a prize award of six dollars. In the event that the player has purchased the "Megaplier" feature and a multiplier number of four is selected, the regular prize award of two dollars shall be multiplied by four and the player shall be entitled to a prize award of eight dollars.
