POLICY STATEMENT

WASHINGTON STATE LOTTERY


[ Filed February 22, 1999, 11:17 a.m. ]

The Washington State Lottery has recently adopted or revised the following policies:


POL 110.553 and 110.557 Headquarters Drawing Official (HDO) Activities (revision)

The HDO performs duties related to the on-line drawings, such as ensuring sales are closed, winning numbers are certified, and pay out values are in the on-line games system. This revision adds the new on-line game, Lucky for Life, and reflects changes due to broadcasting the drawings on NorthWest Cable News (all games are now broadcast live and are performed in a different order).

Signed November 13, 1998.

POL 250.005 - Walk-In Prize Claim Validation and Payment (revision)

Lottery offices that sell lottery tickets now pay walk-in claims with a cumulative total of approximately $100 or less in cash. Added information on paying Lucky for Life prizes. Clarified that what was previously termed a "random audit" is actually a "quality check." Replaced outdated information: (a) Check registers are no longer used; [(b)] check copies are yellow (not pink); and (c) deleted information regarding barcodes for games under #162.

Signed November 12, 1998.

POL 320.045 - Lucky for Life Retailer Sales Contest and Clerk Promotion (new)

This contest/promotion awarded lottery on-line retailers for having the highest percentage sales increase for Lucky for Life in their region, randomly awarding one on-line retailer who had at least a 6.5% increase in Lucky for Life sales over the week ending October 17, and randomly awarding lottery on-line retailer clerks with Lucky for Life merchandise. The contest/promotion ran from October 18 through 31, 1998.

Signed October 19, 1998.

POL 320.046 "Scratch Your Way to Miami" Second Chance Drawing (new)

Players who submitted two valid nonwinning Football Fever Scratch tickets by November 30, 1998, were entered into a drawing to receive one of two trips for two to Super Bowl XXXIII in Miami. The prize package included round trip air fare for two from either the SeaTac or Spokane Airport, ground transfers between the Miami airport and hotel, two nights hotel accommodations for two people, and two tickets to the Super Bowl.

A preliminary drawing was held to select 50 finalists. The two winning entries were drawn on December 20, at a Seahawks game.
