WIN FOR LIFE

Definitions
For the purposes of the Win for Life game, the following definitions apply except as otherwise specifically provided in OAR chapter 177 or unless the context requires otherwise:
(1) “Board” means that portion of the game slip through which a player, either manually or by indicating a Quick Pick, selects a set of four, two-digit numbers from one through seventy-seven which comprise a Win for Life prize category wager. There are five boards on each Win for Life game slip which, depending on the number of boards marked by the player, will produce up to five game plays per game slip.
(2) “Exchange ticket” means a computer-generated, printed paper issued by a terminal to replace a game ticket that had been purchased for play in consecutive Win for Life drawings and was validated as a winning ticket before the latest drawing appearing on the game ticket. An exchange ticket shall contain the exact game play and future drawing date(s) appearing on the validated game ticket it is replacing and shall have all other characteristics of a game ticket except as otherwise stated in these rules. An exchange ticket shall not contain a ticket price.
(3) “Game play” means the player selection of one set of numbers as their Win for Life prize category selection. The Win for Life selection, once properly submitted as described in OAR 177-094-0030, then prompts the terminal to automatically and randomly select fourteen additional sets of numbers. The first two of the fourteen sets apply to the $50,000 prize category, the next four sets apply to the $20,000 prize category, and the last eight sets apply to the $10,000 prize category. All fifteen sets of numbers appear on a ticket for a particular drawing each of which shall be compared to the winning numbers selected at the drawing(s) and appearing on the ticket to determine the prize or multiple prize payment that may be claimed.
(4) “Game ticket” or “ticket” means a computer-generated, printed paper issued by a terminal as a receipt for the game play selected by a player and which contains the following: the caption “Win for Life,” one game play, the date(s) of the drawing(s) in which the ticket shall be played, the number of consecutive drawings on which the ticket shall be played, the identifying number for each drawing, the price of the ticket, a six-digit retailer number, a serial number, and a bar code.
(5) “Prize category” means a subset of the prize structure described in OAR 177-094-0080 which describes the value of the Win for Life prizes.
(6) “Quick Pick” means the random selection of numbers by a terminal which appear as the game play on a ticket.
(7) “Set” means the four, two-digit numbers from one through seventy-seven which are selected by either the player or the terminal as Win for Life wagers.
(8) “Draw game terminal” or “Terminal” has the meaning set forth in OAR 177-070-0005(4).
(9) “Winning numbers” means the four numbers, from one to seventy-seven randomly selected at each drawing, as described in OAR 177-094-0050, which are used to determine whether the game ticket contains winning game plays.

Price
(1) General: The minimum price of a ticket for a single drawing is $2.
(2) Consecutive Drawings: The price of a ticket for play in consecutive drawings shall be the price of a ticket for a single drawing ($2.00) multiplied by the number of consecutive drawings in which the ticket will be played. The minimum ticket price for consecutive drawings is $4.00 ($2 x 2 consecutive drawings = $4). A player may purchase tickets for future consecutive drawings up to the maximum permitted by the Lottery.
(3) Game Boards: A game slip contains five boards. Each of the five boards may be used by a player to purchase a single ticket. Therefore, a game slip may be used to purchase up to five tickets. Any game slip indicating a total ticket purchase price greater than that permitted by the Lottery shall be automatically rejected by the terminal.

Prizes
(1) General:
Prizes for a winning ticket are determined by matching each horizontal set in the
ticket’s game play with the winning numbers from the relevant drawing. [Table
not included. See ED. NOTE.]
(2) Prize
Percentage Payout: The number of prizes for the Win for LifeSM game is not predetermined by the Lottery. The overall prize percentage payout for
the Win for LifeSM game is estimated at approximately 65% 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 numbers of players participating each day and the number of winning wagers.
(3) Disputes:
In the event of a dispute over the value of a prize or whether a ticket contains
winning numbers or is a winning ticket, the Director’s determination is controlling.
(4) Multiple
Prizes:
(a) Subject
to the validation requirements in OAR 177-094-0060, for each drawing, a player may
receive multiple prizes on each ticket for which a ticket containing a winning game
play is eligible.
(b) Only
the top-prize associated with each set of numbers within the Win for LifeSM,
$50,000, $20,000, and $10,000 prize categories shall be paid.
(5) Claiming
a Prize: Prize payments must be claimed, and shall be made, in accordance with the
provisions of OAR 177-070-0025. Notwithstanding OAR 177-070-0025(2) and subject

claim form in person, at Lottery Headquarters in Salem, Oregon.

LifeSM prize of $1,000 per week for life.
(7) Win
for LifeSM Top Prize:
(a) General:
The Win for LifeSM top prize is $1000 per week for life. Only one natural person may own a winning
ticket for the Win for LifeSM top prize of $1,000 per week for life, and claim the Win for LifeSM top prize of $1,000 per week for life. Notwithstanding OAR 177-046-0110(6), a winning
ticket of the Win for LifeSM top prize cannot be owned jointly and the top prize will only be paid to the owner
of the winning ticket.
(b) Ownership:
Only one natural person may sign a Win for LifeSM top prize of $1000 per week for life winning ticket. A winning ticket of a Win
for LifeSM top prize is owned by the natural person who first signs the ticket and cannot be
claimed by multiple owners. In the event a single winning ticket is signed by more
than one natural person, the natural persons who signed the ticket must identify
the natural person who first signed the ticket on a form provided by the Lottery.
(A) No Relinquishment:
Notwithstanding OAR 177-024-0110(6)(c), ownership of a winning ticket of a Win for
LifeSM top prize of $1000 per week for life cannot be relinquished.
(B) Deceased
Signatory: If the owner of a winning ticket of a Win for LifeSM top prize dies before the prize is claimed, the personal representative of the owner’s
estate as appointed by a court, may claim the prize on behalf of the owner’s
estate. The maximum prize is $260,000 as set forth in subsection (f) and will be
paid by the Lottery to the owner’s estate in one lump sum.
(c) Payment
Options: The Win for LifeSM top prize is $1,000 per week for life and shall be paid, based upon a selection
made by the prize winner, either as:
(A) Weekly:
A prize payment of $1000 each week beginning on the date prize payment is initiated
upon validation of the winning ticket and thereafter on the same day each week,
or if such day falls on a non-business day, then the next business day; or
(B) Annually:
A payment of $52,000 paid annually beginning on the date prize payment is initiated
upon validation of the winning ticket and thereafter on the anniversary date of
the first payment, or if such date falls on a non-business day, then the first business
day following the anniversary date of the first payment.
(d) Payments
to Cease upon Winner’s Death: The Win for LifeSM top prize of $1,000 per week for life will be paid to the prize winner until such
time as the prize winner dies at which time all further prize payments shall cease.
(e) Five-Year
Guaranteed Payment: Notwithstanding subsection (d) of this section, if the prize
winner dies within five years of the date of prize validation, the Lottery shall
pay any remaining prize payments the prize winner would have received within the
first five years after prize validation in one lump sum to the individual designated
on a beneficiary designation form or to the prize winner’s estate.
(f) Maximum
Five-Year Guaranteed Payment: Notwithstanding subsections (d) and (e) of this section,
for Win for LifeSM tickets purchased on or after December 1, 2010, if the prize winner dies within
five years of the date of prize validation, the Lottery shall pay any remaining
prize payment the prize winner would have received within the first five years after
prize validation in one lump sum, up to a maximum of $260,000, to the individual
designated on a beneficiary designation form or to the prize winner’s estate.
(g) Election
of Payment Schedule:
(A) Limitations
of Election: At the time of the validation of a winning Win for LifeSM ticket for the top prize of $1000 per week for life, the prize winner of the top
prize must elect either the weekly or annual prize payment schedule described in
subsection (b) of this section. A prize winner who elects the annual payment schedule
cannot subsequently convert to the weekly payment schedule. The election of the
annual payment schedule is irrevocable. A prize winner who elected the weekly payment
schedule may convert to the annual payment schedule at any time, and the Lottery
will issue payment to the prize winner for the sum of the remaining weekly payments
from that date to the next anniversary date. Subsequent annual payments will be
made on the anniversary date.
(B) Election
When Child Support Owed: Notwithstanding subsection (A) of this subsection and subsection
(g) of this section, when a search of delinquent child support obligors performed
pursuant to ORS 461.715 and OAR 177-010-0090 Child Support Validation Check results
in a positive match with the prize winner and the Division of Child Support of the
Department of Justice (DOJ) or its successor initiates garnishment proceedings,
the prize winner of the Win for LifeSM top prize of $1,000 per week for life has no payment options from which to select
and will be placed on the annual payment schedule as described in subsection (7)(b)(B)
of this section. This placement on the annual payment schedule is irrevocable.
(C) Conversion
to Annual Payment Schedule upon Garnishment from Department of Justice: Upon receipt
of garnishment proceedings from DOJ directed to the Lottery for monies due or to
become due to a prize winner receiving weekly payments under the Win for LifeSM top prize of $1000 per week for life, the Lottery will place that prize winner on
the annual payment schedule as described in subsection (7)(b)(B) of this section.
Conversion of the prize winner’s payment schedule from weekly to annual under
this section of the rule is irrevocable. The Lottery shall make payments to such
a prize winner as follows:
(i) Payment
Less Garnishment Amounts: Within a reasonable time after the disposition of the
garnishment proceeding, the Lottery shall pay the prize winner the sum of the prize
winner’s weekly payments from the date the Lottery placed the prize winner’s
payments on hold to the prize winner’s next anniversary date less any amounts
withheld pursuant to the garnishment proceedings and applicable tax laws.
(ii) Subsequent
Payments: The Lottery shall make any subsequent annual payments, less any amounts
withheld pursuant to the garnishment proceedings and applicable tax laws, on the
anniversary date of the validation of the prize or on the next business day following
if the anniversary date is a Saturday, Sunday, holiday or furlough closure day.
(h) Limitation
on Prize Amount for Multiple Top Prize Winning Tickets: Where there are more than
three winning tickets in a single Win for LifeSM drawing, the maximum combined annual top prize payout for a single Win for LifeSM drawing is $156,000.
(A) More
Than Three Winning Tickets: Notwithstanding the $1,000 per week amount referred
to in this rule, if there are more than three winning tickets for a Win for LifeSM top prize of $1,000 per week for life in a single drawing, the annual top prize
payment per winning ticket shall be limited to $156,000 divided by the number of
winning tickets of the Win for LifeSM top prize in that drawing.
(B) Example:
For example, if there are four Win for LifeSM top prize winning tickets in a single drawing, the annual top prize amount is calculated
by dividing 4 into $156,000 which equals $39,000 as the annual prize payment amount
per each winning ticket.
(C) Payment:
Notwithstanding subsection (g) of this section, the prize winner will be paid on
an annual prize payment schedule. This placement on the annual prize payment schedule
is irrevocable.
(D) Effect
of Subsequent Events: Subsequent events, including, but not limited to, the death
of one of the prize winners, shall not alter the other prize winners’ original
pro rata share of the calculated prize amount.
(i) Initiation
of Payment: Prize payment is initiated upon validation of a winning ticket.
(j) Electronic
Fund Transfer: After the initial prize payment issued to a Win for LifeSM top prize winner, the Lottery shall pay both weekly and annualized Win for LifeSM prize installments via electronic funds transfer in the usual course of Lottery
business.
(k) Annual
Affidavit Required:
(A) General:
Once each year and no earlier than thirty days prior to the anniversary of the original
validation date, a prize winner of a Win for LifeSM top prize of $1,000 per week for life shall provide the Lottery with an affidavit
on a form provided by the Lottery, signed by the prize winner, bearing the seal
of a notary public, verifying the prize winner is living, containing the prize winner’s
current address, and a bank account number to which the prize shall be paid.
(B) Termination
of Prize: If a prize winner of a Win for LifeSM prize of $1,000 per week for life does not provide the Lottery with the affidavit
described in subsection (i)(A) of this section, then the Lottery shall not make
further prize payments to the prize winner. If the failure of a prize winner to
provide the affidavit continues to the next anniversary of the validation date,
the remainder of the prize shall be terminated.
(C) Exception:
Notwithstanding paragraph (B) of this subsection, when it is reasonable and prudent
to do so based on the facts underlying a prize winner’s failure to provide
an annual affidavit, the Director may authorize prize payment even though an affidavit
has not been provided or is not timely provided. No interest shall be paid by the
Lottery on the value of the prize during the period a prize remained unclaimed.
(l) Death
During a Payment Year: If a prize winner of a Win for LifeSM top prize of $1,000 per week for life dies after five years have elapsed from the
date of validation and if a sequence of weekly prize payments are paid over the
course of the year in which the prize winner dies or if a single annual prize payment
has been paid prospectively to the winning player for that year, the prize could
be overpaid. It is the policy of the Lottery that the difference between the prize
that should have been paid based on the date of the death of the prize winner relative
to the anniversary date of validation of the prize and the prize amount that was
actually paid during the year in which the prize winner died will not be subject
to reimbursement by the Lottery. Any prize payment paid after the year in which
the prize winner dies relative to the anniversary date of validation of the prize
shall be subject to reimbursement to the Lottery.
(m) Non-Assignability:
A Win for LifeSM top prize of $1,000 per week for life is based on the unknown duration of the life
of the prize winner and is therefore a prize of unspecified value and uncertain
periodicity. Consequently, a Win for LifeSM top prize of $1,000 per week for life is not a future periodic prize payment as
described in ORS 461.253(1) and cannot be assigned, gifted, sold, or transferred
in any manner from the winner to another person or entity except under the circumstances
as described in subsection (d) of this rule.

Selling Bonus
(1) General:
For the purposes of OAR 177-040-0025(2)(a), a retailer who sells any winning and
validated Win for LifeSM top prize of $1,000 per week for life shall receive a bonus of $13,000 which is
based on one percent (1%) of an estimated prize value of $52,000 per year paid over
a period of 25 years ($52,000 x 25 = $1,300,000 x .01 = $13,000).
(2) Multiple
Top Prize Winning Tickets: Notwithstanding section (1) of this rule, if the
Win for LifeSM top prize of $1,000 per week for life is reduced in accordance with OAR 177-094-0080(7)(g),
the selling retailer shall receive a bonus based on one percent of the actual prize
amount paid over a period of 25 years. For example, if the prize value paid is
$31,200 per year, the bonus shall be $31,200 x 25 = $780,000 x .01 = $7,800.

The Lottery shall make any subsequent annual payments, less any amounts withheld
pursuant to the garnishment proceedings and applicable tax laws, on the anniversary
date of the validation of the prize or on the next business day following if the
anniversary date is a Saturday, Sunday, holiday, or furlough closure day.
(4) Death During a Payment
Year: If a prize winner of a Win for LifeSM Scratch-itSM ticket game prize of $1,000 per month for life dies within a year for which a single
annual prize payment has been paid prospectively to the winning player for that
year, the prize could be overpaid. It is the policy of the Lottery that the difference
between the prize that should have been paid based on the date of the death of the
prize winner relative to the anniversary date of validation of the prize and the
prize amount that was actually paid during the year in which the prize winner died
will not be subject to reimbursement by the Lottery. If for any reason a prize payment
is paid after the year in which the prize winner dies relative to the anniversary
date of validation of the prize, the prize payment shall be subject to reimbursement
to the Lottery.
