For the purpose of this rule, “sales cycle” shall mean any such period, including reprints, beginning on the date when ticket sales are commenced and continuing through the date established by the director as the date on which sales agents are to make their final settlement with respect to tickets allocated to them during the period in game rule number three hundred seventy-nine.

(B) General design.

(1) Game rule number three hundred seventy-nine is a match three lottery game of the type generally known as an “instant lottery,” and which contains an Ohio Lottery Commission TV game show feature.

Holders of valid tickets on which at least three of the prize values are the same shall win a prize award equal to such prize value. If two identical amounts are revealed and a “2X” symbol is revealed, the player wins two times the amount shown. If two identical amounts are revealed and a “5X” symbol is revealed, the player wins five times the amount shown. If the player reveals an “ENTRY” symbol three times, the player becomes eligible for a chance to be selected in a scheduled drawing to appear as a contestant on the Ohio Lottery Commission TV Game Show, Cash Explosion. If the player reveals a “30th Anniversary” symbol, the player may enter the ticket online for a chance to be selected in a scheduled drawing to appear as a contestant on Cash Explosion’s “2nd Chance” anniversary television special for a chance to win three hundred thousand dollars or more.

(3) All holders of valid winning tickets, which reveal an “ENTRY” symbol three times shall become eligible for a chance to be selected in a scheduled drawing to appear as a contestant on the Cash Explosion® Game Show by complying with the special claim, entry, receipt, validation and drawing requirements of the Ohio lottery commission’s current Game Show Mail and Drawing Procedures, and with all other applicable requirements of the rules of the commission, the regulations of the director and the procedures established by the director. Holders of valid tickets containing the “30th Anniversary” symbol and who enter the ticket online shall become eligible for a chance to be selected in a scheduled drawing to appear as a contestant on Cash Explosion’s “2nd Chance” anniversary television special for a chance to win three hundred thousand dollars or more by complying with the special claim, entry, receipt, validation and drawing requirements of the Ohio lottery commission’s current Game Show Mail and Drawing Procedures, and with all other applicable requirements of the rules of the commission, the regulations of the director and the procedures established by the director.

Numbers, prize values and play symbols appearing on any ticket in game rule number three hundred seventy-nine shall be concealed by an opaque covering which may be scratched off by the holder of the ticket to reveal the underlying numbers, prize values and play symbols.

(C) Price of tickets. The price of a ticket issued by the commission in game rule number three hundred seventy-nine shall be two dollars.

(D) Structure, nature and value of prize awards.

(1) The type of prize to be awarded in game rule number three hundred seventy-nine shall be the regular prize awards. Other types of prizes, “game show prizes,” shall be awarded in each Lottery TV game show.

(2) As used in this rule, “prize award” shall mean an “ENTRY” as described in paragraph (D) (2) (a) of this rule, a “Drawing” as described in paragraph (D) (2) (b) of this rule, or one of the following monetary amounts: two dollars, four dollars, five dollars, ten dollars, twenty dollars, fifty dollars, one hundred dollars, five hundred dollars, and five thousand dollars.

(a) Holder of a valid ticket on which three of the prize values revealed are “ENTRY” ticket symbols shall become eligible for a chance to be selected in a scheduled drawing to appear as a contestant on The Ohio Lottery TV game show, Cash Explosion® Game Show;

(b) Holder of a valid ticket on which the prize value revealed is the “30th Anniversary” ticket symbol shall, upon entering the ticket online, become eligible for a chance to be selected in a scheduled drawing to appear on Cash Explosion’s “2nd Chance” anniversary television special for a chance to win three hundred thousand dollars or more.

(3) Each eligible holder of an “ENTRY” ticket whose name is drawn for participation in The Ohio Lottery TV game show, Cash Explosion® Game Show shall be subject to the rules and regulations established by the director in the Ohio lottery commission’s current Game Show Procedures. Each eligible holder of a “30th Anniversary” ticket whose name is drawn for participation in Cash Explosion’s “2nd Chance” anniversary television special shall be subject to the rules and regulations established by the director in the Ohio lottery commission’s current Game Show Procedures. (The director shall have the discretion to establish Bonus prizes and to modify prize amounts awarded to contestants for promotional purposes.)

(4) The number of prize awards in any sales cycle of game rule number three hundred seventy-nine will depend upon the number of tickets sold during that cycle. However, distribution and availability for public purchase may be affected by, but not limited to, circumstances such as stolen, defective, missing, damaged, promotional, returned or reordered tickets. Tickets shall be printed in accordance with this rule using random techniques.

(a) Combinations winning each prize award are randomly distributed throughout all tickets printed in any given ticket issuance.

(5) For each line in column one of the appendix to this rule, the player having the prize value and multiplier, if any, on that same line in column three shall win the prize award on the same line in column four; and in a pool of eighteen million tickets sold, mathematical reasoning suggests that the number of tickets having that prize value and multiplier, if any, in column three should be as set forth on that same line in column five.

(2) When a ticket issued in game rule number three hundred seventy-nine is sold or deemed sold in accordance with this rule and the covering material over any of the play symbols and prize symbol has been removed, the holder shall be deemed to have drawn the play symbols and prize symbols on that ticket which determine whether the holder is entitled to a regular prize award. All regular prize awards shall be deemed announced no later than the last day of the sales cycle of game rule number three hundred seventy-nine in which the ticket was sold

(3) Drawings conducted for the purposes of determining who shall become entitled to appear as a contestant on The Ohio Lottery TV game show, Cash Explosion® Game Show and any other drawings conducted in connection with a TV game show shall comply with the rules and regulations of the commission governing “prize drawings” and special lottery drawings as set forth in rules 3770:1-6-05 and 3770:1-6-06 of the Administrative Code, as applicable.

Prize awards shall be claimed within the time limits set forth by commission rules.

(H) Validity of tickets.

(1) A mechanical error in printing prize awards, symbols, words or other numbers on a ticket shall not automatically invalidate that ticket. To the extent feasible, the director shall establish procedures by which the holder of any ticket on which information is incorrectly printed due to mechanical malfunction may be advised of correct information for the ticket. If it is not technically feasible to recover the information from a mechanically misprinted ticket, the director may declare the ticket void and the holder shall be entitled to a return of the ticket price or a replacement ticket of comparable price.

(2) In addition to, but not in limitation of, all other power and authority conferred on the director by the commission’s rules, the director may declare a ticket in game rule number three hundred seventy-nine void if it is stolen, deactivated, not sold or deemed not sold in accordance with commission rules; if it is illegible, mutilated, altered, counterfeit, misregistered, reconstituted, miscut, defective, printed or produced in error or incomplete; or if the ticket fails any of the validation tests or procedures established by the director.
