 10. Retailer Bonus: The Lottery may offer a retailer bonus in connection with the sale of Pennsylvania instant lottery game tickets. If a retailer bonus is offered, a Lottery retailer shall be eligible for a bonus as described in this section. Lottery retailers who sell a winning ticket that entitles the ticket holder to a prize, either payable in a single installment or having a guaranteed minimum payout, of at least $100,000 and not exceeding $500,000 shall be paid a bonus of $500.

 11. Unclaimed Prize Money: For a period of 1 year from the announced close of Pennsylvania Diamond Mine '16, prize money from winning Pennsylvania Diamond Mine '16 lottery game tickets will be retained by the Secretary for payment to the persons entitled thereto.
