If your username and password have been entered correctly, we are entitled to assume that you are the person using your account. You are responsible for any charges, costs, expenses, damages, liabilities, and losses of any kind that you, we, or any third party may incur as a result of your failure to keep your account information confidential. It is your responsibility to immediately notify us if you suspect or discover that your account has been compromised. You agree to cooperate with any investigation into unauthorized access of your account.

Ticket Entry History

You understand and agree that we may record and store any non-winning ticket information you enter through the website. A ticket entry history and entry total summary is also available for you to view through your account. This ticket entry history and entry total summary is provided as a convenience only so you may view your entries into promotions. It is not an official record. This information does not constitute and does not establish a transaction, winning entry, or prize. We do not guarantee the accuracy of information appearing in your account ticket entry history or entry total summary. It is your responsibility to notify us of any errors. We are not liable for any damages or losses resulting from your reliance on or failure to report errors.

Lottery’s Right to Suspend and Disable Access to Account

You understand and agree that an account is a discretionary privilege and that we may suspend or disable your access to your account at any time, for any reason, and without notice. In the event of that access is disabled, any entries in second chance drawings may be forfeited. It is your responsibility to provide accurate account information so that we may contact you if necessary. We are not liable for any damages or losses resulting from our inability to contact or locate you, or for your failure or inability to contact the Kentucky Lottery within any time period prescribed by these terms or by any other rules and regulations of the Kentucky Lottery.

Inactive Accounts

If you do not log in to your account for twenty-four (24) consecutive months, we may designate your account as inactive, and your account may not be re-activated until you contact Customer Service.

Self-Exclude or Deactivating Your Account

If you want to self-exclude or deactivate your Fun Club account, you may go to your Fun Club profile page and follow the instructions. You may self-exclude or deactivate your account for a specific period of time or you may self-exclude or deactivate your account permanently. Once you make this selection, it cannot be reversed. 

During the period of self-exclusion or deactivation:

  • You will not be able to access your account;
  • You acknowledge that you forfeit any entries you have for second chance promotions;
  • You will not be able to enter any second chance promotion;
  • You will not receive any marketing communications from us.

If you follow us on any social media platform, you must “unfollow” the Kentucky Lottery in order to stop receiving updates. We are unable to perform this function.

If you elected to self-exclude or deactivate your account permanently, you may never re-open your account or register for a new account.

We have no responsibility in connection with any player who elects to self-exclude or deactivate his/her account, but is able to circumvent the system and use an account despite the exclusionary period selected by the player, and any such action is in violation of these rules. 

If you selected a specific time period for self-exclusion or deactivation of your account, at the end of your selected time period, you will not be able automatically to access your account. You must contact Customer Service to re-open access your account. 

We may require you to provide certain information to verify your identity before self-excluding or deactivating your account.

We reserve the right to retain your profile and account information for an indefinite period of time, even though you have self-excluded or deactivated your account, or your account is inactive.

If you elected to self-exclude or deactivate your account permanently, you may never re-open your account or register for a new account.

We have no responsibility in connection with any player who elects to self-exclude or deactivate his/her account, but is able to circumvent the system and make purchases on the website despite the exclusionary period selected by the player, and any such action is in violation of these rules. 

If you selected a specific time period for self-exclusion or deactivating your account, at the end of your selected time period, you will not be able to access your account.  You must contact Customer Service to re-open access your account. 

We reserve the right to retain your profile and account information for an indefinite period of time, even though you have self-excluded or deactivated your account, or your account is inactive.

IV. PROMOTIONAL OFFERS

General Conditions

Various promotional offers may be made available from time to time. These offers are subject to and governed by additional terms and conditions specific to the promotion. By accepting a promotional offer, you agree to all such additional terms and conditions. Unless expressly stated otherwise in the terms and conditions for a specific promotion, all promotional offers have no cash value, and cannot be exchanged for money. Promotional offers are discretionary, and you have no right to receive or redeem any specific offer. Promotional offers may be cancelled at any time and without notice. We are not liable for any damages or losses resulting from any delay, error, or failure to make or accept any promotional offer.     

Bonus Bucks

Players may receive promotional awards (“Bonus Bucks”) for qualifying activities.  An award of Bonus Bucks results in the deposit of Bonus Bucks into your account.  Bonus Bucks can be used towards the purchase of online play (draw game and Instant Play). Qualifying activities that may result in an award of Bonus Bucks may include, but are not limited to:

  • Account funding in a specific period of time, amount or manner

 Resulting awards are automatically assigned. You will be notified of the award and your transaction history will be updated. Bonus Bucks have no cash value and may not be withdrawn.  

V. FUNDING YOUR ACCOUNT

Deposited Funds, Prize Winnings and Bonus Bucks

The funds you deposit into your account, your prize winnings, and any Bonus Bucks in your account will be tracked separately.  Your account may, at times, be referred to as your “wallet.” The funds you deposit may be referred to as funds in your “deposit pocket.”  The funds that are your prize winnings may be referred to as funds in your “prize winnings pocket.”

Depositing Funds

You may deposit funds by logging in to your account, and following the steps for using any method that we have approved, including credit cards, debit cards, and ACH transfer. We do not guarantee that each of these funding mechanisms will be available or that any particular card will be accepted. You will be required to provide certain financial account information in order to fund your account, including, but not limited to your bank account number, routing number, credit or debit card account information.

At the discretion of the Lottery, players may be able to deposit funds into their account using one of two methods available through participating Lottery retailers, and known as “iGift” and “iFunds.” You must be a member of Fun Club and have an account in order to fund through an iGift or iFunds transaction.

In order to fund your account through an iGift transaction, you (or other purchaser 18 years of age or older) may request from a retailer an authorized amount (in whole dollars). After the retailer is paid, the retailer prints a voucher.  You may then log in to your account, and follow the steps for redeeming your voucher or iGift.  Subject to account balance and deposit limits, the amount will be added to your account. If the addition of an iGift would cause your account balance and deposit limits to be exceeded, the iGift cannot be added to your account.  An iGift expires five (5) years after the date of purchase, and cannot be replaced, reused, reloaded, or exchanged for cash.

In order to fund your account through an iFunds transaction, you log in to your account, and follow the instructions for retrieving your “Player Identification Card,” which you will need to provide to a participating retailer. You may request iFunds of an authorized amount (in whole dollars), subject to your account balance and deposits limits, from the retailer, and present your Player Card for retailer to scan. The retailer scans your Player Card.  The terminal will display the maximum amount that you can add, based on account balance and deposit limits. Retailer then enters the amount (equal to or less than the maximum allowed), and takes your payment.  You will receive a receipt from the retailer and the amount will automatically be applied to your account. 

By initiating a deposit, you represent and warrant that you:

  • understand that funds you deposit into your account may not be withdrawn or refunded, unless required by law;
  • have authority to use the payment source and method you select;
  • are not depositing funds derived from any fraudulent or unlawful source;
  • will not attempt to reverse, charge-back, block, cancel, or in any way attempt to prevent us from receiving the deposit;
  • consent to our sharing your personal information with any third parties that we use to process your requested deposit;
  • consent to us performing any background check or investigation we deem necessary to ensure that your payment source and method are authorized;
  • understand that you must be physically located within the boundaries of Kentucky in order to purchase lottery tickets through the website.

We are not required to examine your authority to use a payment source or method and are entitled to assume you have authority. We may require you to provide additional information, provide copies of documents, or appear in person at a designated claim center. We do not guarantee that a deposit will be processed and made available in any specific period of time. We do not guarantee that a deposit will be free from error. We reserve the right to deny any deposit at any time and without notice. We are not liable for any damages or losses resulting from any delay, denial, or error in processing a deposit.

Funding Limits

There are limits on the amount you may deposit into your account during a given period of time. You may not deposit more than $200 per day, $500 per week, or $1,000 per month.  We reserve the right to change these limits at any time. You have the option of setting lower limits by logging in to your account and going to “My Limits.” If you set lower limits, you will be required to wait 24 hours before raising your limits, and you may never exceed the limits set by the Lottery.

You agree to abide by all applicable terms and conditions required by your financial institution or payment processor. You are solely responsible for any transaction fees or penalties of any kind imposed by any financial institution, payment processor, or other third party associated with processing your transaction. You are required to reimburse us for any losses we suffer as a result of any transaction fees or penalties of any kind associated with your transaction. You hereby authorize us to hold and collect any amount owed to us as a result of any such fees or penalties from your deposits or winnings. We reserve the right to pursue any other means to recover such losses.

No Withdrawal or Transfer of Deposit

Funds you deposit into your account cannot be withdrawn, returned, charged-back, re-credited, or transferred to another account, unless required by law. It is your responsibility to refrain from depositing more than you will use. You agree that you will not attempt to deny, reverse, charge-back, re-credit, block or otherwise attempt to invalidate, recover, or deny us receipt of a deposit. You hereby authorize us to hold and collect any amount owed to us as a result of any such fees or penalties from your deposits or winnings. We reserve the right to pursue any other means to recover such losses.

Maximum and Minimum Deposit and Prize Winnings Account Balances

You may have no more than $1,000 in funds deposited by you in your account, and you may have no more than $5,000 in prize winnings in your account. We reserve the right to change these maximum limits, or to set or change a minimum required amount for all funds in your account, at any time and without notice. We are not liable for any damages or losses resulting from setting or changing any minimum or maximum amount.

Terms of Use Relating to ACH Transfers

You authorize Global Payments Gaming Services, Inc. (Global Payments) or its Service Providers to initiate debit and credit entries to the account at the depository financial institution for which you have provided information.

Any dispute arising out of or relating to the services, regarding Global Payments, its Service Providers (including but not limited to Certegy) or any of their affiliates, shall be finally resolved by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Commercial Arbitration Rules, and judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. The arbitration will be conducted in the English language in accordance with the United States Arbitration Act. There shall be one arbitrator, named in accordance with such rules. The arbitrator shall decide the dispute in accordance with the substantive law of the state of Florida. The award of the arbitrator shall be accompanied by a statement of the reasons upon which the award is based. Any arbitration arising out of the services shall proceed solely on an individual basis without the right for any claims to be arbitrated on a class action basis or on bases involving claims brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of others. Claims may not be joined or consolidated unless agreed to in writing by all parties. No award or decision will have any preclusive effect as to issues or claims in any dispute with anyone who is not a named party to the arbitration.

You expressly authorize Global Payments, its Service Providers (including but not limited to Certegy), and their affiliates to contact you, via auto-dialer, pre-recorded messages, or any other method, on any of your mobile phone numbers or emails.

In questions involving ticket validation, the determination of the KLC’s President is final. In cases of dispute for any reason, the President may at his or her sole discretion, replace the disputed ticket with a ticket of equal value or refund the purchase price.

If we suspect any unlawful conduct or violation of these terms, we may withhold payment of a prize pending completion of an investigation. You agree to cooperate with us in any investigation. We do not guarantee payment of a prize within any specific period of time. We are not liable for any damages or losses resulting from any delay in payment of a prize.

Process for Claiming Prizes over $600 and up to $49,999.99

If you have won a prize over $600 and up to $49,999.99, you must log in to your account and follow the directions for indicating whether you want to: (1) claim the prize online and have your check mailed to the address on file for your account; or (2) claim the prize in person.

Online Claim Process for Prizes over $600 and up to $49,999.99

If you choose to complete the online claim process, you will be required to provide your Social Security Number and must indicate whether you are a U.S. citizen.  By providing this information, you represent and warrant that: you are the registered user of your Fun Club account; your account information is accurate; and you accept our claim policy. You further represent and warrant that you have truthfully represented whether or not you are a U.S. citizen, you have provided us with your correct social security number; are not subject to backup withholding; and are not subject to the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA). We will pay your prize by issuing a check, unless the prize is an annuitized prize.   A check will be mailed to the address on file for your account.

Claiming in Person

If you are claiming a prize in person, you will be required to provide a valid government issued photograph identification, such as a driver’s license, or other form of photograph identification acceptable to the KLC, and a completed claim form, which requires you to provide your Social Security Number and to indicate whether you are a U.S. citizen. By providing this information, you represent and warrant that: you are the registered user of your Fun Club account; your account information is accurate; and you accept our claim policy. You further represent and warrant that you have truthfully represented whether or not you are a U.S. citizen, you have provided us with your correct social security number; are not subject to backup withholding; and are not subject to the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA). The prize will be claimed only after the KLC receives all required information. We may require proof of your Social Security Number. We will pay your prize by issuing a check, unless the prize is an annuitized prize.

Backup Withholding

Backup withholding refers to the process by which a person or entity making payments to you must, under certain conditions, withhold and pay a percentage of such payments to the IRS. Your prize will be subject to backup withholding if you do not provide your correct social security number to us, you do not certify your social security number when required, the IRS notifies us that you furnished an incorrect social security number, the IRS notifies you that you are subject to backup withholding because you did not report all of your interest and dividends on your tax return, or you do not certify to us that you are not subject to backup withholding. For more information, please visit the IRS website at www.irs.gov.

Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA)

The FATCA requires US taxpayers to report certain foreign financial accounts and offshore assets. It also requires certain foreign financial institutions to report all US account holders that are specified US persons. To learn if you own foreign financial assets subject to the FATCA or if you qualify for an exemption from the FATCA, please refer to the IRS website at www.irs.gov. Withholding is the cost of not reporting.

Tax Obligations

A lottery prize is considered income and a taxable event when claimed or received. We report all prizes over $600 to the IRS and Kentucky Department of Revenue. A Form W-2G is generated for all prizes over $600, and will be mailed to you with your check if you claimed online or provided to you in person if you claimed in person. We are required to withhold state and federal tax from all prizes over $5,000. These withholdings are estimates only and do not necessarily satisfy the tax liability. It is your responsibility to immediately inform us if you believe there is an error in reporting or withholding. You are solely responsible for properly reporting and paying your applicable local, state, and federal taxes. We are not liable for any damages or losses resulting from your failure to properly report or pay any local, state, or federal taxes.

State Debt Check and Set Off

Before paying any prize of $600 or more, state law requires us to check for certain debts, including back taxes owed to the state, child support arrearages, and student loan debts. If any such debts exist, we are required to offset your prize by the amount of the debt. If you believe that prize money was withheld for a debt that has already been paid, it is your responsibility to contact the agency reporting the debt and seek reimbursement. We are not liable for any damages or losses resulting from any offset from a prize for payment of a debt.

Claim Errors

A lottery claim may not be premised on human or electronic error in the communication, display, or transmission of data regardless of how that data is recorded, displayed, or transmitted. A claim may not be premised on any intentional human, electronic, or other form of communication or transmission that was not authorized by the Kentucky Lottery. We are not liable for any damages or losses resulting from any erroneous or unauthorized communication, display, or transmission of data.

Time for Claiming a Prize

If you have a winning ticket from a draw game, you must claim the prize within one hundred eighty (180) days after the drawing in which the prize was won.  If you win after playing a game in which you may determine instantly whether you have won or lost, including an Instant Play game, you must claim the prize within one hundred eighty (180) days after the end of the game as announced by the Lottery. KRS 154A.110(2) (e). Game end dates are announced on the website kylottery.com.

Failure to Claim a Prize

If a valid claim is not made for a prize within the required time period, the prize shall constitute an unclaimed prize and will be addressed as provided in KRS 154A.110 (3). It is your responsibility to properly claim your prize. We are not liable for any damages or losses resulting from your failure to properly claim your prize.

IX. WITHDRAWING PRIZE WINNINGS

Prize Winnings Withdrawals Only

An Instant Play Ticket for this Instant Play Game may be purchased for $1.00, unless authorized by the President at a discount for promotional purposes.


3.
HOW TO PURCHASE

A. Instant Play Tickets are only available online and may not be purchased at retail. In order to purchase an iLottery Instant Play Ticket, a player must be a member of the Lottery’s Fun Club Rewards, must log in to his or her Fun Club Rewards account at http://www.kylottery.com, and successfully complete the purchase process according to the iLottery Terms of Use.

B. To purchase an Instant Play Ticket, the player must be at least 18 years of age, have a valid Kentucky address, be physically located within the Commonwealth of Kentucky at the time of the purchase, have a properly registered account, and be using player’s own account to purchase a ticket. The KLC may deem invalid any purchases made in violation of these requirements, the iLottery Terms of Use, or other applicable rules, and may refuse to award the prize.

C. All sales are final. Once the purchase is completed, the player may not cancel the purchase. The player is solely responsible for ensuring that he or she has selected the correct lottery game and all options relating to that game, including, but not limited to, game ticket, number of tickets, and price of tickets. Purchases made in error will not be refunded.

D. Player is solely responsible for obtaining and maintaining any equipment and connectivity necessary to access the Website and purchase an Instant Play Ticket. Games may not be available on certain devices due to operating requirements associated with the Games. The Lottery makes no representations or warranties as to a player’s ability to access, purchase, and play any game, or that the Website or games will display correctly on all devices on which they can be viewed.

E. Players may have the option to "Buy Now" or "Try Now." By design, the Game play and player experience are the same, although there are important differences. By choosing "Buy Now," the player elects to purchase the Instant Play Ticket, and the purchase value will be deducted from the player's account. Once confirmed, Instant Play Ticket purchases cannot be voided or cancelled. If a Game player chooses "Try Now," the player acknowledges that he or she is playing a trial version of the Instant Play Game; the player is not purchasing an Instant Play Ticket, and the player will not be awarded a cash prize even though the Game results may reveal a prize.

HOW TO PLAY

The object of Lightning Keno is to match revealed keno board numbers.

To begin play, the player must select the number of spots he or she wishes to play, and complete the purchase process set out in the iLottery Terms of Use. The outcome of the player’s ticket is determined at the time of the ticket purchase. At the start of the game, Lightning Keno presents the player with a game-play window, displaying the following: a question mark (How to Play) button; a keno board with numbers ranging from one (1) to eighty; QUICK PICK and CLEAR buttons; and TICKET COST, BALANCE, SPOTS, and WINS boxes.

The player selects the keno board numbers according to the number of spots selected, or clicks QUICK PICK, so a PLAY button appears. The player’s selection of numbers has no bearing on the outcome. To begin play, the player clicks PLAY, which causes the PLAY button to become a launcher, and the game launches twenty keno balls.

If a keno ball lands on a keno board number that matches a player’s pick, the game highlights the matched number and notes the match in the space above the launcher. If keno balls land on keno board numbers that match the number of picks required to win, the game highlights the matched numbers and notes the matches and prize value in the space above the launcher.

To complete play, the game must reveal twenty keno numbers. The game then displays a message indicating the game’s outcome, the total prize value in the WINS box, and an arrow (Back) button, which the player clicks to exit the game.


5.
DETERMINATION OF PRIZE WINNERS

A. iLottery Instant Play Games are games of chance, and the outcome of a play in the case of any Game is determined by the system at the point of purchase and is not affected by the skill, judgment or action of the player. The system distributes outcomes based on the probabilities within the prize structure. The overall chances of winning in a Game at each prize level are determined by the prize structure. Outcome will not be affected by a disconnection from the system after point of purchase.

B. The revealing of the play symbols on the Instant Play Ticket does not determine if the Instant Play Ticket is a winning Ticket. The revealing of the play symbols is for entertainment purposes only.

C. A player who validly purchases an iLottery Instant Play Ticket using his or her Fun Club Rewards account, and according to these rules and the iLottery Terms of Use, is the owner of the iLottery Instant Play Ticket, is entitled to any prize won on that ticket, subject to all requirements necessary to claim the prize. An iLottery Instant Play Ticket is a NOT bearer instrument. Neither the electronic record of purchase, nor any other confirmation of the purchase is a bearer instrument. An iLottery Instant Play Ticket may not be assigned or transferred, except as allowed or required by law.

D. If an iLottery Instant Game play is not played out to completion for any reason, including the interruption of the player, loss of connectivity during game play or Game termination by the Lottery, the player will be notified by email that the Game has not been completed and that the Game will be available for a specified time. If the play is not completed within that time, play will be completed automatically by the system on the player’s behalf to reveal the outcome determined at the point of purchase. The player will be notified by email of such outcome, and the prize claim and payment process remains the same, whether player plays the game to completion or the game is completed automatically.
