OAR 177-070-0035
Validation Requirements


General: To be a valid winning Draw game ticket, except as otherwise provided for lost, damaged, or destroyed tickets, all of the following conditions must be met:


The ticket data must have been recorded in the Lottery’s central computer system prior to the drawing and the information appearing on the ticket must correspond with the computer record;


The ticket must be intact to the extent that all information appearing on the ticket corresponds with the Lottery’s computer records;


The ticket must not be altered or tampered with in any manner;


The ticket must not be counterfeit or a duplicate of another winning ticket;


The ticket must have been issued by an authorized Draw game retailer or dispensed by a player-activated terminal in an authorized manner;


The ticket must not have been stolen or canceled;


The ticket must not have been previously paid;


The ticket is subject to all other confidential security checks of the Lottery.


Ticket as Receipt: Except as otherwise provided for lost, damaged or destroyed tickets, a ticket is the only valid receipt for claiming a prize. A copy of a ticket or a play slip has no pecuniary or prize value and does not constitute evidence of ticket purchase or of numbers selected.


Validation Process: A ticket shall be validated through the Lottery’s computer system.


Validation of Lost, Damaged, or Destroyed Tickets for Draw Game Prizes: If a player of a Draw game cannot submit an intact winning ticket because a retailer lost, damaged, or destroyed the ticket while attempting to perform validation procedures on the game ticket, or because the ticket was otherwise damaged so that it cannot be validated through Lottery’s central computer system or because it is otherwise unreadable, a prize claim based on such lost, damaged or destroyed ticket may still be validated as provided in OAR 177-046-0110 (Payment of Prizes) and provided the claim is received before the end of the one-year period described in OAR 177-70-0025.


Invalid Tickets: Any ticket not passing all applicable validation checks is invalid and void for claims made under this rule. A player submitting an invalid or void ticket is ineligible for any prize and no prize shall be paid for such a ticket. An invalid ticket will not be returned to the player and is not eligible for any second chance or promotional drawing.
