18- 553 C.M.R. ch. 10, § 13 - ON-LINE LOTTERY TICKETS

1. Authority to operate on-line games. The director , with the approval of the commission, may operate on-line lottery games requiring a drawing of numbers to determine the winners. The director may arrange for the preparation of tickets to on-line lottery games which must be sold at a price determined by the commission. Tickets to on-line lottery games must be imprinted with the amount of the wager or price of the ticket, as well as the drawing date or dates. All ticket sales must be made through an official lottery on-line computer terminal.

1-A. Price. The commission shall determine the price of tickets within a range of $1 to $5.

2. Signed agent agreement required. Tickets may be sold only by licensed, on-line agents pursuant to the Act, these rules and the terms and conditions of the "Agent Agreement for Sale of Lottery Tickets." An agent may not sell on-line lottery game tickets unless the agent has signed the "Agent Agreement for Sale of Lottery Tickets."
3. Responsibilities of a player. In order to be entitled to a prize for an on-line lottery game, the claimant must be the holder of a valid winning ticket, that is recorded in the computer log file of the State Lottery as a valid winning ticket. An exception to this rule may not be made. It is the player's responsibility to determine, at the time of purchase, that the ticket received accurately reflects the wager the player wishes to make and the numbers the player wishes to play. The placing of bets is done at the player's own risk. If the claimant possesses a misprinted ticket, incorrect ticket, void ticket or a ticket printed in error, that was not corrected at the time of purchase, the director may authorize the claimant to receive a refund of the purchase price of the ticket. This refund is the sole remedy for any person who does not possess a valid winning ticket.
4. Application. This section applies to on-line games operated by the State Lottery under the authority of 8 M.R.S.A. chapter 14-A. It does not apply to games operated under the authority of the Tri-State Lotto Compact.
