61 Pa. Code § 875.10 - Terminal-based lottery game ticket validation and requirements

(a) Valid terminal-based lottery game tickets. To be a valid terminal-based lottery game ticket, the presented terminal-based lottery game ticket must meet the following conditions:
(1) The terminal-based lottery game ticket validation numbers shall be present in their entirety and correspond, using the Lottery's validation file, to the selected numbers, letters or symbols printed on the terminal-based lottery game ticket for the dates printed on the terminal-based lottery game ticket.
(2) The terminal-based lottery game ticket must be intact.
(3) The terminal-based lottery game ticket may not be mutilated, altered, reconstituted or tampered with.
(4) The terminal-based lottery game ticket may not be counterfeit or an exact duplicate of a winning ticket.
(5) The terminal-based lottery game ticket shall have been issued by the Lottery through a licensed retailer.
(6) The terminal-based lottery game ticket may not have been stolen.
(7) The terminal-based lottery game ticket shall be validated in accordance with § 875.11 (relating to procedures for claiming and payment of prizes).
(8) The terminal-based lottery game ticket data shall have been recorded on the Lottery's central computer system prior to the drawing and the terminal-based lottery game ticket data shall match this computer record in every respect.
(9) The player or computer-selected numbers, letters or symbols, the validation data and the drawing date of an apparent winning terminal-based lottery game ticket shall appear on the official file of winning terminal-based lottery game tickets. A terminal-based lottery game ticket with that exact data may not have been previously paid.
(10) The terminal-based lottery game ticket may not be misregistered, defectively printed, or printed or produced in error to an extent that it cannot be processed by the Lottery.
(11) The terminal-based lottery game ticket shall pass other confidential security checks of the Lottery.
(12) By submitting a terminal-based lottery game ticket for validation, the player agrees to abide by this chapter as determined by the Secretary.
(13) There may not be another breach of this part in relation to the terminal-based lottery game ticket which, in the opinion of the Secretary, justifies disqualification.
(b) Invalid or defective terminal-based lottery game tickets/disputes. A terminal-based lottery game ticket not passing the validation checks in subsection (a) will be considered invalid and will not be paid.
(1) In cases of doubt, the determination of the Secretary is final. The Secretary may replace an invalid terminal-based lottery game ticket with a terminal-based lottery game ticket of equivalent sale price from a current Lottery game.
(2) If a defective terminal-based lottery game ticket is purchased or if the Secretary determines to adjust an error, the sole and exclusive remedy will be the replacement of the defective or erroneous terminal-based lottery game ticket with a terminal-based lottery game ticket of equivalent sale price from a current Lottery game.
(3) If a terminal-based lottery game ticket is not paid by the Lottery and a dispute occurs as to whether the terminal-based lottery game ticket is a winning terminal-based lottery game ticket, the Lottery may replace the terminal-based lottery game ticket as provided in paragraph (2). This is the sole and exclusive remedy of the holder of the terminal-based lottery game ticket.
