The Lottery must have issued the ticket or share in an authorized manner.


The ticket or share must not be altered, unreadable, reconstituted, or tampered with in any manner including, but not limited to, the signature area, and must meet all of the Lottery’s security requirements.


The ticket or share must not appear on any list of omitted, inactive, missing, previously paid, or stolen tickets on file at the Lottery, and, if applicable, the Lottery’s Instant Ticket System (ITS) must accept and validate the ticket or share as a winner.


The ticket or share must not be blank or partially blank, misregistered, non-scratchable, or printed or produced in error.


The ticket or share is subject to all additional confidential validation tests of the Lottery including validation through the Lottery’s computer system.
