    3. Pari-Mutuel Prize Determinations:
      1. If the total of the set prizes awarded in a drawing exceeds the percentage of the prize pool allocated to the set prizes, then the amount needed to fund the set prizes awarded shall be drawn from the following sources, in the following order:
        1. The amount allocated to the set prizes and carried forward from previous draws, if any;
        2. An amount from the Set Prize Reserve Account, if available, not to exceed $40,000,000 per drawing.

    4. If, after these sources are depleted, there are not sufficient funds to pay the set prizes awarded, then the highest set prize shall become a pari-mutuel prize. If the amount of the highest set prize, when paid on a pari-mutuel basis, drops to or below the next highest set prize shall become a pari-mutuel prize. This procedure shall continue down through all set prize levels, if necessary, until all set prize levels become a pari-mutuel prize levels.

 PRIZE PAYMENT 

  1. Selection of Payment Type: Grand prizes shall be paid, at the election of the player made no later than sixty (60) days after the player becomes entitled to the prize, with either a per winner annuity or single lump sum payment. If the payment election is not made by the player within 60 days after the entitlement to the prize, then the prize shall be paid as an annuity prize. The election to take the single lump sum payment may be made at the time of the prize claim or within sixty (60) days after the player becomes entitled to the prize. An election made after the winner becomes entitled to the prize is final and cannot be revoked, withdrawn, or otherwise changed.
  2. If the Cash Option is selected, no cash payment will be processed until the Claimant makes an election by submitting a signed, notarized form irrevocably selecting the Cash Option method of payment.
  3. Share of the Grand Prize: Shares of the Grand Prize shall be determined by dividing the funds available in the Grand Prize pool equally among all winning plays of the Grand Prize.
  4. Lump Sum Payment: Winner(s) who elect a lump sum payment shall be paid their share(s) in a single lump sum payment. (The annuitized option prize shall be determined by multiplying a winner’s share of the Grand Prize Pool by the MUSL annuity factor. The MUSL annuity factor is determined through a process as approved by the Finance and Audit Committee). The advertised Grand Prize Jackpot Amount may differ from the single lump sum payment; approximately one-half of the advertised grand prize amount.
  5. Annuity Payment: The annuitized option prize shall be determined by multiplying a winner’s share of the Grand Prize pool by the MUSL annuity factor.
    • The MUSL annuity factor is determined by the best total securities price obtained through a competitive bid of qualified, pre-approved brokers made after it is determined that the prize is to be paid as an annuity prize or after the entitlement expiration.
  6. Initial and Annual Payments: Except as may be controlled by statute, all annuitized prizes shall be paid annually in thirty payments with the initial payment being made directly with available funds, to be followed by twenty-nine payments funded by the annuity. All annuitized prizes shall be paid annually in thirty (30) payments with the initial payment being made in a single payment, to be followed by twenty-nine (29) payments funded by the annuity. Except as may be controlled by a Selling Lottery’s governing statute, all annuitized prizes shall be paid annually in thirty (30) graduated payments (increasing each year) by a rate as determined by the Product Group.
  7. Funding the Annuity: Funds for the initial payment of an annuitized prize or the lump sum payment prize shall be made available by MUSL for payment by the Party Lottery which sold the winning ticket by the 15th calendar day (or the next banking day if the fifteenth day is a holiday) following the drawing.
  8. Lack of Available Funds: If necessary, when the due date for the payment of a prize occurs before the receipt of funds in the prize pool trust sufficient to pay the prize, the transfer of funds for the payment of the full lump sum cash option amount may be delayed pending receipt of funds from the selling Lotteries. A paying lottery may elect to make the initial payment from its own funds after validation, with notice to MUSL.
  9. Death of Winner: In the event of the death of a lottery winner during the annuity payment period, unless prohibited by jurisdictional law, the MUSL Finance and Audit Committee, in its sole discretion excepting a discretionary review by the Product Group, upon the petition of the estate of the lottery winner (the “Estate”), to the lottery of the jurisdiction in which the deceased lottery winner purchased the winning play, and subject to federal, state district, or territorial applicable laws, may accelerate the payment of all of the remaining lottery proceeds to the Estate. The identification of the securities to fund the annuitized prize shall be at the sole discretion of the Finance & Audit Committee or the Product Group.
  10. Low-Tier Prizes: Lottery shall begin paying low-tier prizes after receiving authorization to pay from the MUSL central office.
  11. Rounding of Grand Prize Payments: Annuitized payments of the Grand Prize or a share of the Grand Prize may be rounded down to facilitate the purchase of an appropriate funding mechanism.
  12. Minimum Grand Prizes and Increases: The Product Group may offer guaranteed minimum Grand Prize amounts or minimum increases in the Grand Prize amount between drawings or make other changes in the allocation of prize money where the Product Group finds that it would be in the best interest of the game. If a minimum Grand Prize amount or a minimum increase in the Grand prize amount between drawings is offered by the Product Group, then the Grand Prize amount shall be determined as follows.
    1. All Winners Select Annuity: If there are multiple Grand Prize winners during a single drawing, each selecting the annuitized option prize, then a winner’s share of the guaranteed annuitized Grand Prize shall be determined by dividing the guaranteed annuitized Grand Prize by the number of winning plays.
    2. Mix Lump Sum and Annuity: If there are multiple Grand Prize winners during a single drawing and at least one of the Grand Prize winners has elected the annuitized option prize, then the best bid submitted by MUSL’s pre-approved qualified brokers shall determine the cash pool needed to fund the guaranteed annuitized Grand Prize.
    3. No Winners Select Annuity: Grand Prize pool shall be an amount equal to the guaranteed annuitized amount divided by the MUSL annuity factor.
    4. Changes in Allocation of Prizes: Changes in the allocation of prize money, shall be designed to retain approximately the same prize allocation percentages, over a year’s time, set out in these rules. Minimum guaranteed prizes or increases may be waived if the alternate funding mechanism set out in rule becomes necessary.
  13. Roll Over of Grand Prize: If the Grand Prize is not won in a drawing, the prize money allocated for the Grand Prize shall roll over and be added to the Grand Prize pool for the following drawing.
  14. One Prize per Board: The holder of a winning ticket may win only one prize per play in connection with the winning numbers drawn, and shall be entitled only to the prize won by those numbers in the highest matching prize category.
  15. Claim Expires in one hundred eighty days from the drawing: Claims for all prize categories, including the Grand Prize, must be submitted within one hundred and eighty days (180) after the date of the drawing in which the prize was won. If a valid claim is not made for a cash prize within the applicable period, the cash prize shall constitute an unclaimed prize.

    In certain rare instances, the Powerball® set prize amount may be less than the amount shown. In such case, the eight lowest Power Play® prizes will be changed to an amount announced after the draw. For example, if the Match 4+1 Powerball® set prize amount of $50,000.00 becomes $25,000.00 under the rules of the Powerball® game and a 5x Power Play® multiplier is selected, then a Power Play® player winning that prize amount would win $125,000.00.


    Probability of Winning: The following tables set forth the probability of the various Power Play® numbers being drawn during a single Powerball® drawing, except that the Power Play® amount for the Match 5+0 prize will be $2,000,000. The Group may elect to run limited promotions that may modify the multiplier features.
