(1)Funding Account Required: To play Lottery games digitally, the player must establish a funding account for the player’s benefit and link this funding account to their player account. To establish the funding account, a player must agree to the terms and conditions of the financial institution that holds the funding account. The funding account will be used to provide digital credits to the player account that may be used by the player to purchase tickets or shares and receive prizes.
(2)Funding Account Fees. The Lottery does not charge for deposits or withdrawals from the funding account. The Lottery is not responsible for any fees that may be charged to the player by a payment processor, or financial institution, pursuant to an agreement with the player.
(3)Player Credits. A player may only purchase tickets or shares up to the player balance; under no circumstances will the Lottery extend credit to a player. A player is not entitled to funds incorrectly allocated to the player account. The Lottery is entitled to reverse such credits from the player account and recover any funds that may have been withdrawn from the funding account related to any over crediting of the player account.
(4)Bonuses: The Lottery may, in its sole discretion, from time to time, offer bonuses or similar promotional incentives. Bonuses appear as digital credits in the player account and may be used to play Lottery games subject to limitations, but bonuses have no cash value and are not available to withdraw.
(5)Prizes: For Lottery games played digitally, prizes are claimed, validated, and paid digitally according to the rules for the particular game and OAR 177-046-0110 (Payment of Prizes).
(a)Once a player’s prize is deposited in the funding account, the Lottery considers the prize claimed by the player. A player may withdraw from their funding account at any time up to the funds balance, subject to any limitations in the terms and conditions of the financial institution holding the funding account or other payment processors used by the player.
(b)The player is responsible for providing accurate and updated information to the bank holding the funding account and for providing accurate information when requesting to withdraw. The Lottery is not responsible for delays or losses caused by incorrect payment method information provided by the player. Once a withdrawal is approved, the Lottery is not responsible for any third-party financial clearing processes that may delay or prevent the player’s receipt of any withdrawn funds.
