§ 871.14.Parimutuel prize pool.
(a) The prize pool for all prize categories shall consist of 50% of each drawing period’s sales after the prize reserve accounts are funded to the amounts set by the MUSL Powerball Product Group. Any amount remaining in the prize pool at the end of the game shall be carried forward to a replacement game or expended in a manner as directed by the MUSL Powerball Product Group in accordance with State law.
(b) An amount equal to up to 2% of a party lottery’s sales shall be deducted from a party lottery’s grand prize pool and placed in trust in one or more prize reserve accounts until the party lottery’s share of the prize reserve accounts reaches the amounts designated by the MUSL Powerball Product Group. Once the party lottery’s share of the prize reserve accounts exceeds the designated amounts, the excess shall become part of the grand prize pool. The MUSL Powerball Product Group, with the approval of the Finance and Audit Committee, may establish a maximum balance for the prize reserve accounts. The shares of a party lottery may be adjusted with refunds to the party lottery from the prize reserve accounts as may be needed to maintain the approved maximum balance and shares of the party lotteries. Any amount remaining in a prize reserve account at the end of this game shall be carried forward to a replacement prize reserve account or expended in a manner as directed by the MUSL Powerball Product Group in accordance with State law.
(c) If the prize pool for a drawing is not sufficient to fund an announced minimum grand prize, the prize pool will be increased as necessary in accordance with MUSL rules.
