 10. Pennsylvania Lottery's MONOPOLY Jackpot Second-Chance ''Collect and Win'' Game Requirements.

 (a) To be eligible for the Pennsylvania Lottery's MONOPOLY Jackpot ''Collect and Win'' Game (''Game'') entrants must be members of the Pennsylvania Lottery VIP Players Club. To join the VIP Players Club, visit http://www.palottery.state.pa.us/vipplayersclub/login.aspx to create a VIP Players Club Member account. Becoming a VIP Players Club member is free.

 (b) To enter the Game, entrants must enter the identifying information from at least one non-winning PA-1073 MONOPOLY Jackpot ($5) instant lottery ticket (''Qualifying Ticket'') via the Game's promotional website during the entry period.

 (c) The entry period for the Game begins after 11:59:59 p.m. February 23, 2014. The Secretary will announce the end of the entry period via the Game's promotional website. All time references are Eastern Time.

 (d) The contents of the entry form must be accurate and complete. Incomplete entry forms cannot be submitted.

 (e) Only one claimant per entry allowed.

 (f) Entrants must be 18 years of age or older.

 (g) Entry is limited to entrants that indicate, at the time of submitting an entry, that their entry is being submitted from an internet connected device located within Pennsylvania.

 (h) The only entry method for the Game is via the Lottery's website at http://www.palottery.com. Entries mailed to the Pennsylvania Lottery will be disqualified.

 (i) Players may enter unlimited qualifying tickets in the Game.

 11. Pennsylvania Lottery's MONOPOLY Jackpot Second-Chance ''Collect and Win'' Game Play Description.

 (a) For each Qualifying Ticket entered in the Game the player will have the opportunity to play a virtual non-prize-determinative Monopoly themed board game that may reveal predetermined instant cash prizes, Monthly Jackpot Entries or Monthly Jackpot Multiplier Entries. Each Qualifying Ticket shall have a predetermined ticket file assigned at the time of printing the ticket that will determine the outcome of the game play.

 (b) The player will receive five virtual rolls of the dice for each Qualifying Ticket entered. The number rolled virtually moves the player's game token around the MONOPOLY game board. The play sequence will result in a player's game token landing on one of three types of game board spaces. The three types of game board spaces and the resulting play action is as follows:

 (i) The property spaces are the MONOPOLY color-coded properties, Railroads and the Utility spaces. Properties are collected by the player. When the player's game token lands on a property space, the color-coded property is added to the player's inventory. There are 22 properties identified by color, four Railroads and two Utility spaces. When a player completes a property set by collecting all the properties of the same color group, all the Railroads or both the Utilities, the play sequence displays a wheel spin. The wheel spin will reveal instant cash prizes or Monthly Jackpot Drawing Entries.

 (ii) The card spaces are the MONOPOLY Chance and Community Chest cards. Chance and Community Chest cards may award properties or Monthly Jackpot Multiplier Entries (2X or 10X). The cards may also advance the player's game token to a specific location on the game board or result in no action at all.

 (iii) The non-event spaces are ''GO,'' ''Luxury Tax,'' ''Income Tax,'' ''Just Visiting'' and ''Free Parking.'' Each new game play begins on the ''GO'' space, otherwise landing on these spaces results in no action at all.

 (c) Players may review prizes won, Monthly Jackpot Entries, Monthly Jackpot Multiplier Entries and their property inventory via the Game's promotional website.

 12. Pennsylvania Lottery's MONOPOLY Jackpot Second-Chance ''Collect and Win'' Game Prizes Available to be Won, Determination of Winners and Odds of Winning.

 (a) When the predetermined ticket file for a Qualifying Ticket entered in the Game indicates that the play shall result in an award of an instant cash prize, the play sequence will show the player landing on a Chance or Community Chest card space. The Chance or Community Chest card will reveal a complete property set and a resulting wheel spin sequence will reveal the cash prize for that property set. The following table sets forth the approximate number of winners, prize amounts, and approximate odds of winning an instant cash prize:

Property Set Approximate
Number of Winners

 (b) When the predetermined ticket file for a Qualifying Ticket entered in the Game indicates that the play sequence shall result in the player acquiring a property or properties, but not being awarded an instant cash prize, the play sequence will show the player landing on the property space(s) for the designated property or properties. If the play sequence results in the player acquiring a completed property set or acquiring a property or properties that form a completed property set when combined with the players inventory of previously acquired properties, then the play sequence will proceed to a wheel spin. The wheel spin will reveal the sum of the number of Monthly Jackpot Entries assigned to each property in the player's completed property set that triggered the wheel spin sequence. The Monthly Jackpot Entries awarded will be valid only for the next available Monthly Jackpot Drawing. Completing a property set, as described in this subsection, may require submitting multiple Qualifying Tickets. The number of Monthly Jackpot Entries assigned to a property is variable and predetermined at the time the Qualifying Ticket is printed. The following table sets forth the approximate number of winners, range of available Monthly Jackpot Entries per property set, and the approximate odds of winning Monthly Jackpot Entries:

The Chance or Community Chest Card will reveal the Monthly Jackpot Multiplier Entry of either 2X or 10X. A Monthly Jackpot Multiplier Entry is a single entry valid for only the next available Monthly Jackpot Drawing. A Monthly Jackpot Multiplier Entry does not multiply Monthly Jackpot Entries awarded under subsection (b) above. The following table sets forth the approximate number of winners and the approximate odds of winning a Monthly Jackpot Multiplier Entry:
