(10) Lottery Draws
a. For the avoidance of any doubt, both the Operator and the Bookmaker are not lottery operators and do not perform any lottery draw.
b. If the relevant operator of an underlying lottery makes multiple draws on the same date, then unless otherwise specified by the Bookmaker and/or the Operator, a User’s Bet will apply only to the main draw taking place on that date (or, where no main draw takes place, the first draw), under exclusion of any other draw made by the lottery operator in question.
c. If a lottery draw does not take place or no draw result is published or officially announced, all valid Lottery Bets on that draw will stand for the rescheduled draw (or, if there is none, the next available relevant draw).

(viii) the draw is declared by the underlying lottery operator as being invalid.
1. If any Lottery Bet is voided in accordance with Condition 11.c (i), 11.c (ii), or 11.c (iii), the Operator will offer the User, the option of placing any such Lottery Bet on the next relevant draw or crediting the User’s Player Account with the relevant sum. If any Lottery Bet is otherwise voided by the Operator or the Bookmaker in accordance with these specific terms, the relevant sum associated with that bet may be forfeited by the Operator, except in those cases where the Lottery Bet was placed by a User who is under the age of 18.
2. A winning bet on the Operator’s Website will be paid out as if the winner had participated in the underlying lottery. To this effect, theoretical applicable Federal, State and City taxes will be applied to the advertised value in each relevant prize category. For lotteries organized in the USA, the net payout of a winning bet will be calculated as if the winner was a resident of New York City, USA. For lotteries organized in Spain, the net payout of a winning bet will be calculated as if the winner was a resident of Barcelona, Spain. For the pan-European lotteries Euro Millions and Euro Jackpot, the net payout of a winning bet will be calculated as if the winner was a resident of Zürich, Switzerland and Barcelona, Spain respectively. For all other lottery games, the net payout of a winning Lottery Bet will be calculated as if the winner was a resident of the capital in the country where the lottery is organized.
3. A User with an Operator winning Lottery Bet will be treated equally by means that their winnings will be the same as the Pay Out they would have received, had they bought a Winning Ticket in the underlying lottery instead of placing a Lottery Bet on the Operator Website. If the underlying lottery organizer has not announced a pay out in the respective Prize Category for the relevant draw, the Winnings payable in respect of each Operator winning Lottery Bet in that Prize Category will be calculated by the Bookmaker on the basis of the published aggregate amounts paid in for the relevant draw announced by the operators and its allocation to the winning Prize Categories.
4. The winnings payable in respect of each winning Lottery Bet will depend on the number of winning tickets in the relevant prize category in the underlying lottery, the number of Bookmaker winning Lottery Bets in the relevant prize category and the payable Prize by the operators for the winning tickets in the relevant prize category. The Bookmaker will calculate this amount on the basis of the amount of aggregate Lottery Stakes published by the operators of the underlying lotteries as well as the distribution to the prize categories or on the basis of the amount published on the website of the operators of the underlying lotteries for the prize categories of the relevant draw. The total of all winnings payable for the prize categories for a certain draw must never exceed the amount for the relevant draw and might be divided among the winners.
Example 1: There is one Bookmaker winning Lottery Bet in Prize Category 1 and no winning ticket has been announced by the operator of the underlying lottery in Prize Category 1 in respect of a Jackpot of 40,000,000.00 EUR. The Winnings payable in respect of that single Bookmaker winning Lottery Bet in Prize Category 1 would be 40,000,000.00 EUR
Example 2: There is one Bookmaker winning Lottery Bet in Prize Category 1 and two winning tickets have been announced by the operator of the underlying lottery in Prize Category 1 in respect of a Jackpot of 30,000,000.00 EUR. The Winnings payable in respect of that single Bookmaker winning Lottery Bet in Prize Category 1 would be 10,000,000.00 EUR.
Example 3: There are two Bookmaker winning Lottery Bets in Prize Category 1 and no winning ticket has been announced by the operator of the underlying lottery in Prize Category 1 in respect of a Jackpot of 40,000,000.00 EUR. The Winnings payable in respect of each Bookmaker winning Lottery Bet in Prize Category 1 would be 20,000,000.00 EUR.
(12) Advertised Lottery Prizes
a. All of the advertised prizes by the relevant lotteries and by the Operator Websites, are prizes gross of any relevant theoretical federal or state taxes/levies on winnings in accordance with Condition 11.e. Moreover, all advertised prizes by the relevant lotteries, on those lotteries that pay out the advertised prize over a period of years, need to be discounted to the present value in order to account for a one-time payment, instead of payments over a period of years.
b. The Operator reserves the right to offer and advertise a prize higher or lower than the prizes advertised by the relevant underlying lotteries.
c. Only the advertised prizes published are the prizes which will be paid out by the Operator to any Operator winning Users.
(13) Commitment to Decisions
a. In the event of a dispute in respect of a Lottery Bet or the payment or awarding of any Lottery Bet winnings, the Operator may withhold payment of the Lottery Bet winnings until any dispute has been fully resolved.
b. Where the Operator makes a final decision, or exercises any discretion referred to above, the Operator may, solely at its discretion, reimburse the sum paid by the User for the relevant Lottery Bet or offer a new Lottery Bet to the User.
In the event of any discrepancy between the Conditions specific to customers wishing to Bet on the outcome of lottery results and the General Terms and Conditions of Operator, the Conditions specific to customers wishing to Bet on the outcome of lottery results shall prevail.
