The randomizer will not be programmed to eliminate the possibility of the same container being selected more than once.

   (3)  If the numbered container selected is a physical container, one envelope will be randomly drawn from the container. As each entry envelope is selected, its contents will be qualified according to the requirements of section 10(a). If the entry does not meet the requirements of section 10(a), another entry will be selected from that container; and so on, until a qualified entry has been chosen. Once a qualified entry has been selected, further validation will take place by verifying the status of the tickets contained in the entry envelope drawn by entering the ticket information into the computerized instant ticket database. The first qualified and validated entry from the designated container will entitle its owner to the prize described in section 12.

   (4)  If the numbered container selected is a virtual container, a computer-generated randomizer will be used to randomly select one entry from the container. The individual who submitted the entry will be entitled to the Prize described in section 12.

   (a)  The submission of an entry via the Internet which is selected to win a prize in the Pennsylvania Lottery--Bonus PayDayTM Second-Chance drawing will require the individual who submitted the entry to submit the two tickets used to create the submission and a Lottery claim form to the Lottery within 1 year of the Lottery notifying the individual who submitted the entry that the entry was selected.

   (b)  The back of each non-winning Pennsylvania PayDayTM instant lottery ticket entered in the Pennsylvania Lottery--Bonus PayDayTM Second-Chance Drawing via the Lottery's website and selected to win a prize must be completed by the same player who created the account in a legible manner, including the player's name, street address, city, state, zip code, telephone number and signature.

   (c)  If the tickets used to create the submission are not received by the Lottery within one year or the tickets do not meet the requirement of section 10(b)(2), the right of a ticket holder to claim the prize represented by the ticket, if any, will expire and the prize money will be paid into the State Lottery Fund and used for purposes provided for by statute.

   (5)  If a Pennsylvania Lottery--Bonus PayDayTM Second-Chance Drawing entry is rejected during the Pennsylvania Lottery--Bonus PayDayTM Second-Chance Drawing, the sole remedy is to select another entry to replace the rejected entry in accordance with Lottery procedure.

If no claim is made within 1 year of the announced close of the Pennsylvania PayDayTM instant game, the right of a ticket holder to claim the prize represented by the ticket, if any, will expire and the prize money will be paid into the State Lottery Fund and used for purposes provided for by statute.

   15.  Governing Law:  In purchasing a ticket, the customer agrees to comply with and abide by the State Lottery Law (72 P. S. §§ 3761-101--3761-314), 61 Pa. Code Part V (relating to State Lotteries) and the provisions contained in this notice.

   16.  Termination of the Game:  The Secretary may announce a termination date, after which no further tickets from this game may be sold. The announcement will be disseminated through media used to advertise or promote Pennsylvania PayDayTM instant game or through normal communications methods.
