Or. Admin. R. 177-093-0030 - Method for Validating Bets and Determining Winners

An eligible player wins a prize by placing a confirmed and validated winning bet:

(1) A bet is valid if the bet was placed in accordance with OAR 177-093-0020 and other applicable rules by an eligible player through a valid player account, the bet was confirmed, and the bet is not otherwise voided or refunded by the Lottery pursuant to any applicable rule or the terms and conditions. Lottery decisions regarding the validity of a bet are final and binding.
(2) A validated bet is a winning bet if the outcome on which the shares were risked accords with the official event results as provided in this section and the in-game rules. The Lottery has the sole discretion to determine winning bets based on the official event results.
(a) The Lottery reserves the right to delay entering official event results when needed to review information relevant to the outcome of the sporting event. The Lottery will generally defer to the governing body for official event results as described in the in-game rules, but the Lottery retains ultimate discretion to determine winners and pay prizes.
(b) If a sporting event is cancelled, suspended, abandoned, or interrupted or the Lottery is for any reason unable to determine the outcome of a sporting event or particular occurrence within a sporting event on which bets were placed, then related bets may be voided at the Lottery's sole discretion as provided in OAR 177-093-0045 and the in-game rules for the sporting event.
