(a) Powerball. Powerball is a Multi-State Lottery Association
(MUSL) on-line game offered by all Lotteries that have agreed to MUSL's
Powerball Group Rules. "Powerball" is authorized to be conducted by
the executive director under the conditions of the MUSL rules, the
laws of the State of Texas, this section, and under such further instructions,
directives, and procedures as the executive director may issue in
furtherance thereof. In this regard, the executive director is authorized
to issue such further instructions and directives as may be necessary
to conform the conduct and play of Powerball to the requirements of
the MUSL rules if, in the opinion of the executive director, such
instructions, directives, and procedures are in conformance with state
law. If a conflict arises between this section and §401.304 of
this chapter (relating to On-Line Game Rules (General)), this section
shall have precedence. The purpose of the Powerball game is the generation
of revenue for MUSL Party Lottery members and Mega Millions Party
Lotteries participating under the Reciprocal Game Agreement, through
the operation of a specially designed multi-jurisdiction lottery game
that will award prizes to ticket holders matching specified combinations
of numbers randomly selected in regularly scheduled drawings. In addition
to other applicable rules contained in Chapter 401, this section and
definitions apply unless the context requires a different meaning
or is otherwise inconsistent with the intention of the rules adopted
by the MUSL or the MUSL Powerball Group. To be clear, the authority
to participate in the MUSL Powerball game is provided to the Texas
Lottery by MUSL. The conduct and play of Powerball must conform to
the MUSL Powerball game.
