to conduct a game known as "All or Nothing." The executive director
may issue further directives for the conduct of "All or Nothing" that
are consistent with this rule. In the case of conflict, this rule
takes precedence over §401.304 of this title (relating to On-Line
Game Rules (General)).

(See the prize schedule chart in subsection (g) of this section.)
If the player matches all 12 numbers drawn in the drawing, or does
not match any numbers drawn in the drawing, the player wins the Top
Prize. If more than one ticket has been sold in which a player has
matched all or none of the numbers drawn in the drawing, each player
possessing such ticket shall win the Top Prize.

prize basis and a liability cap of $5 million will be divided equally
by the number of top prize winning plays. For purposes of prize calculation
with respect to the pari-mutuel prize, the calculation shall be rounded
down so that prizes shall be paid in multiples of one dollar. Any
part of the top pari-mutuel prize for a drawing that is not paid in
prizes (breakage) shall be applied to offset prize expense. All other
