* Random ticket draw takes place at 9:15 pm at the event. The winner receives 20% of ticket sales from that night.

* The winner must be present to claim prize. If no one comes forward with the winning ticket after 15 minutes, that number is disqualified and another draw will be made. During the 15 minute wait period the winning number will be called 3 more times.
