OAR 177-081-0080


Prizes for a winning ticket are determined by the ticket’s game play and Match Choices which match the winning numbers and the Match Choice criteria established in this section. The prize structure is as follows: [Table not included. See ED. NOTE.]


Intentionally left blank —Ed.


When the potential, aggregate Pick 4 prize liability resulting from all wagers containing a particular combination of numbers reaches or first exceeds $500,000 in a single drawing, then no further wagers of that number combination shall be accepted by the Lottery gaming system for that drawing.


Notwithstanding subsection (a) of this section, the Director may, when conditions so warrant as determined in the Director’s sole discretion, establish a prize liability threshold that is higher than $500,000 for a single drawing. The Director shall not raise the prize liability limit for a particular drawing once wagers have been curtailed because the prize limit has been reached for that drawing.


The number of prizes for Pick 4 is not pre-determined by the Lottery. The overall prize-percentage payout for Pick 4 prizes is estimated at 60% over time, but the actual prize payout may vary from day-to-day and year-to-year, due to factors that include, but are not limited to, the number of players participating each day and the number of winning wagers.


In the event of a dispute over the determination of a prize, the Lottery’s determination is controlling.


Each prize-winning player will be paid in one lump sum.


For each drawing, a player may have more than one winning combination on a single ticket depending on the game play and match choice selected. However, when the Easy 4 Combo Match Choice is selected the player shall receive only the highest single prize for which the player is eligible.
