Or. Admin. R. 177-092-0050 - Voided Bets, Refunds, and Resettlements
(1) In order to maintain the fairness, integrity, security, and honesty of the Lottery and its operations, the Lottery reserves the right to void any share or bet at any time for any reason including, but not limited to:
(a) The Lottery knows or has reason to believe that the player has engaged in conduct prohibited by any applicable source of law, including but not limited to conduct prohibited by OAR 177-046-0022 or 177-092-0055;
(b) The Lottery knows or has reason to believe that the player does not meet all of the eligibility requirements in OAR 177-046-0022 or 177-092-0020, or the Lottery is unable to verify any of the information that the player provided in order to establish the player account;
(c) The Lottery knows or has reason to believe the underlying integrity of the sporting event is in question. This includes, but is not limited to, when the Lottery believes a sporting event has been fixed or an individual who placed the bet was in any way involved in the sporting event such as, but not limited to, as a participant, referee, or coach; or
(d) As provided in the in-game rules.
(2) A player may not initiate a refund on a confirmed bet in Scoreboard for any reason.
(3) The Lottery has discretion to issue a refund to players on a confirmed bet only in the following circumstances:
(a) The Lottery has voided a bet under section (1) of this rule.
(b) The Lottery is unable to satisfactorily determine official event results because the sporting event was not held, meaning the sporting event was cancelled or abandoned before completion for reasons including, but not limited to, player illness or inclement weather.
(c) The Lottery has reason to believe the bet was accepted, placed, or confirmed after the advertised start time (except for an in-play bet), the outcome of the sporting event is known, or a material advantage had been achieved, such as, but not limited to, scoring a goal or touchdown or expulsion of an athlete.
(d) The integrity of the sporting event itself is uncertain, such as, but not limited to, suspected cheating or athlete use of prohibited performance-enhancing drugs.
(e) When provided for in the in-game rules.
(4) Resettlements: From time to time, operator errors may occur or the governing body may overturn a call or change the final results or score of a sporting event.
(a) Operator error. A player is not entitled to a prize paid in error. The Lottery may recover any such prizes.
(b) Change in official event results. If the governing body changes a sporting event result before making the result official, the Lottery may resettle bets to align with the results of the governing body. However, once the governing body makes final results official and the Lottery accepts them as the official event results, the Lottery shall not recognize any changes to the final score or particular calls within the sporting event.
