Wild Card Lotto

[28 Pa.B. 856]

   In accordance with the authority set forth in 61 Pa. Code § 817.118(l) and (i)(5) (relating to determination of prize winners), the Department, by public notice, is amending the Wild Card Lotto game by adding an additional prize category; modifying the percent of the winnings pool allocated to each prize and paying all prizes payable to the first place prize category winners as a one time cash payment. These amendments will be effective for Wild Card Lotto drawings beginning February 24, 1998.

   The additional prize category will allow a player to win a $1 fixed prize if the player selects six numbered squares all in the same game panel which match three of the winning numbers drawn for the game in which the ticket is participating.

   The modification of the percent of the winnings pool allocated to each prize category will result in the parimutuel prize to be awarded to an owner of an apparent winning ticket to be determined as follows:

Tickets Containing thePrize CategoryPercent (%) of Winnings

Four Winning Numbers Plus The Wild Card Number Fourth Prize 4.305% After Deduction of Seventh Prize
Four Winning Numbers Fifth Prize 8.61% After Deduction of Seventh Prize
Three Winning Numbers Plus The Wild Card Number Sixth Prize 4.305% After Deduction of Seventh Prize
Three winning numbers Seventh Prize $1 Fixed

   The modification of the percent of the winnings pool allocated to each prize category will result in the probability of winning and distribution of the parimutuel prize pool as follows:

   The amendment to pay all prizes payable to the first place prize category winners as a one time cash payment results in all individual ticket prize payments for the first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh prize categories to be paid entirely in cash.
