Subject of Possible Rule Making: Title 315 WAC, Lottery commission. Washington's lottery is proposing to add a chapter to Title 315 WAC to create rules for a new draw game known as cash pop.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 67.70.040(1).
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Washington's lottery is considering offering a new draw game known as cash pop. This game has proven to be successful in other states and could help the lottery achieve its statutory mandate to "produce the maximum amount of net revenues for the state …." Rules are necessary to inform the public how the game is played, odds, ticket price, prize structure, etc.
Process for Developing New Rule: The agency will use a collaborative rule-making process to develop the proposed rules. The lottery will post the draft rules on the agency's website and notify interested parties of the opportunity to provide comments. Formal comments will also be taken in writing during the formal comment period and in person at the public hearing. Staff will evaluate comments in coordination with the lottery commission and edit the draft rules consistent with the intent of this rule making prior to proposing the final rules for adoption.
