WAC 315-30-050

Validation requirements.

(1) To be a valid winning online ticket, all of the following conditions must be met:
(a) All printing on the ticket shall be present in its entirety, be legible, and correspond, using the computer validation file, to the combination and date printed on the ticket.
(b) The ticket shall be intact.
(c) The ticket shall not be mutilated, altered, or tampered with in any manner.
(d) The ticket shall not be counterfeit or an exact duplicate of another winning ticket.
(e) The ticket must have been issued by an authorized online retailer in an authorized manner.
(f) The ticket must not have been stolen.
(g) The ticket must not have been canceled or previously paid.
(h) The ticket shall pass all other confidential security checks of the lottery.
(2) Any ticket failing any validation requirement listed in WAC 315-30-050(1) is invalid and ineligible for a prize. Provided, if a court of competent jurisdiction determines that a claim based on a ticket which has failed to validate solely because of subsection (1)(g) of this section is valid, the claim shall be paid as a prize pursuant to WAC 315-06-120, 315-30-030, and the rules for that specific type of game. The agent that cancelled or paid such ticket shall indemnify the lottery for payment of the prize and from any other claim, suit, or action based on that ticket.
(3) The director may replace an invalid ticket with a ticket for a future drawing of the same game. The director may pay the prize for a ticket that is partially mutilated or is not intact if the ticket can still be validated by the other validation requirements.
(4) In the event a ticket is issued in error or a defective ticket is purchased, the only responsibility or liability of the lottery, its vendors or the lottery retailer shall be the replacement of the erroneous or defective ticket with another ticket for a future drawing of the same game.
