I participated in the Ohio Lottery's "Second Chance Drawing" where players enter non-winning tickets into the Ohio Lottery's website for entries into drawings to win cash prizes. I entered several such tickets into the recent drawing (December 2016). Upon entering the tickets, the site says I was awarded a certain amount of entries depending on the value of the ticket and "luck" of that specific ticket i.e., $5 tickets are worth either 5 or 10 entries (awarded randomly), and $10 tickets are worth 10 or 20. All tickets entered are then recorded in an entry history where a player can see all the tickets they've entered and the amount of entries awarded. Upon entering multiple tickets, the site would say I was awarded X number of entries; however, not all the tickets/entries would be listed in my entry history. Also, on several occasions, the site would say I was awarded 10 entries, but my entry history would only show 5. I have evidence of this as I took screenshots from the website which shows the unique ticket numbers. Essentially, I feel as I was shorted a significant number of entries that were earned, thus inappropriately reducing my chances of winning. Do I have a case?
The Ohio Lottery has an official disclaimer, which is summarized as all players are subject to Ohio Lottery Rules and Regulations. I'm willing to bet that they had a process in place for you to correct your entries if the online entry didn't work right. I'm also thinking that you didn't do that. Therefore, since you didn't play by the rules, you are stuck with what you got. I'm changing your topic from Speeding Ticket to Gaming; perhaps you can get additional information from a practitioner in that area.
