Mega Millions® Terminal-Based Lottery Game

[42 Pa.B. 621]
[Saturday, January 28, 2012]

 Under the State Lottery Law (72 P. S. §§ 3761-101—3761-314) and 61 Pa. Code § 875.4 (relating to notice of terminal-based lottery game rules), the Secretary of Revenue hereby provides public notice of changes to the Mega Millions® terminal-based lottery game rules that were published at 40 Pa.B. 676 (January 30, 2010); and amended at 40 Pa.B. 5263 (September 11, 2010), 40 Pa.B. 6846 (November 27, 2010) and 41 Pa.B. 2778 (May 28, 2011).

 This amendment further provides for the Megaplier® promotion by specifying how the Megaplier® number will be determined if a Megaplier® drawing does not occur prior to the Mega Millions® drawing and further provides for the calculation of the second category prize with the Megaplier® option when set prizes become pari-mutuel. These changes will be effective on the publication date of this notice.

 The correct version of this document is as follows, with ellipses referring to the existing text as it appeared at 40 Pa.B. 676—681, 40 Pa.B. 5263 and 5264, 40 Pa.B. 6846 and 6847 and 41 Pa.B. 2778 and 2779:

 10. Megaplier® promotion.

*  *  *  *  *

 (c) Prior to the time of each Mega Millions® drawing, the Mega Millions® drawing officials shall conduct a Megaplier® drawing which shall result in the selection of the Megaplier® number from among the following series of numbers: 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, and 4. If the Megaplier® drawing does not occur prior to the Mega Millions® drawing, as solely determined by the lottery authorized to conduct the Megaplier® drawing, the Megaplier® number will be a 4.

*  *  *  *  *

 (g) When the Mega Millions® second through fifth category prizes become parimutuel, the third through the fifth category prizes won will be calculated by multiplying the parimutuel prize value by the Megaplier® number. The second category prize amount with the Megaplier® option will be reduced by the same percentage as the second category prize is reduced when it becomes a parimutuel prize.
