Game Disputes All tickets, transactions, and claims are subject to the Rhode Island Lottery Rules and Regulations, directives, State and Federal law, and any prospective changes thereto.  Printouts, photographs, screenshots, and other images are not, and will not, be accepted as evidence of a ticket purchase or outcome.  The only evidence of a ticket purchase or outcome is the data contained in the Rhode Island Lottery system that passes all security tests, including, but not limited to, verification against third-party systems and transaction history.  In questions involving ticket validation, the Rhode Island Lottery's determination is final.  In cases of dispute for any reason, the Rhode Island Lottery may, at its sole discretion, replace a disputed ticket with an unplayed ticket of equal value or refund the retail price.  The Rhode Island Lottery's decision to replace or refund a ticket is the purchaser's exclusive remedy.

Bonuses and Promotional Offers – The Rhode Island Lottery may offer special promotional offers for players.  Each promotion is subject to its own terms and conditions, to be determined by the Rhode Island Lottery.  Players who do not wish to receive any promotional offers should contact the iLottery Player Support Line at 800-288-2485.

Promotional offers are discretionary, and players have no right to receive or redeem any specific offer.  Promotional offers may be cancelled at any time and without notice.  If there is a discrepancy between information in a player's iLottery Account and an offer notification, the information in the player's iLottery Account shall prevail.  The Rhode Island Lottery is not liable for any damages or losses resulting from any delay, error, or failure to accept or qualify for any promotional offer.

Bonuses that are awarded to players cannot be cashed out. 

Free Games – Players might be offered free games from time to time.  The requirements for getting free games will be stated by the Rhode Island Lottery and could be upon logging in, playing a minimum requirement on a specific game or games, depositing a minimum requirement into one's iLottery Account, or by other means determined by the Rhode Island Lottery.  Free games have no cash value and cannot be exchanged for real money.  Free game offers may be limited to one (1) game and cannot be changed by the player.  The denomination of a free game cannot be changed by the player.  Free games will expire as determined by the Rhode Island Lottery and will be stated in the free game offering.

Free Bonus Money - Players may be offered a fixed amount of free bonus money or a percentage of free bonus money based on the requirements of the Rhode Island Lottery, such as making a deposit or logging in.  Free bonus money has no cash value and cannot be cashed out.  The requirements and explanation of free bonus money will be included with the offering.

Promo Codes – Some players may receive a promotional code, which will entitle them to free games or free bonus money upon creating an iLottery  Account or making a deposit.  Promotional codes are limited to one (1) use per player and can expire at any time.  Each promotional code will have its own terms and conditions as determined by the Rhode Island Lottery.

Prize Claims – Subject to these Terms and Conditions and all applicable State and Feder al law, prizes won through the Services may be claimed as follows:

  • prizes of five hundred ninety-nine dollars and ninety-nine cents ($599.99) or less are automatically deposited into your iLottery Account; and
  • prizes of six hundred dollars ($600.00) and greater must be claimed in person at Rhode Island Lottery Headquarters.

Before payment of any prize, the Rhode Island Lottery may require you to provide additional information, provide copies of documents, or appear in person at Rhode Island Lottery Headquarters.  The Rhode Island Lottery may change available methods for claiming a prize at any time and without notice.  If the Rhode Island Lottery suspects any unlawful conduct or violation of these Terms and Conditions, the Rhode Island Lottery may withhold payment of a prize pending completion of an investigation.  You agree to cooperate with the Rhode Island Lottery in any investigation.  The Rhode Island Lottery does not guarantee payment of a prize within any specific period of time.  The Rhode Island Lottery is not liable for any damages or losses resulting from any delay in payment of a prize.

Tax Obligations – A Lottery prize is considered income and a taxable event when claimed or received.  The Rhode Island Lottery reports all prizes of six hundred dollars ($600.00) and greater to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).  A Form W-2G is generated for all prizes of six hundred dollars ($600.00) and greater.  The Rhode Island Lottery is required to withhold State and Federal tax from all prizes over five thousand dollars ($5,000.00).  These withholdings are estimates only and do not necessarily satisfy a player's tax liability

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 may 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 the Rhode Island Lottery 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.

Claiming in Person – If you are required to claim a prize in person at the Rhode Island Lottery, you will be required to provide a valid, government-issued picture identification and proof of your Social Security Number. 

iLottery Winnings Intercept – Before paying any prize of six hundred dollars ($600.00) or greater, Rhode Island General Laws § 42-61-7.1 and 42-61-7.2 require the Rhode Island Lottery to check for child support arrearages, overpayment of benefits, and unpaid taxes.  If any such debts exist, the Rhode Island Lottery is legally 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 appropriate agency reporting the debt and seek reimbursement.  The Rhode Island Lottery is not liable for any damages or losses resulting from any offset from a prize for payment of a debt.

Failure to Claim a Prize – A prize must be claimed within one (1) year of the drawing date in the case of iKeno and within one (1) year of the announced end of a specific eInstant Game.

Winnings - When you open an iLottery Account, you are authorizing th e Rhode Island Lottery to deposit your winnings of five hundred ninety-nine dollars and ninety-nine cents ($599.99) or less into your iLottery Account.

You may use deposited winnings in your iLottery Account to make Lottery purchases using the Rhode Island iLottery App and/or Website.  As long as the funds remain in the e-wallet, only Lottery purchases are supported; but you may cash out and use winnings as desired.

Winner Information – If you win a prize of one hundred dollars ($100.00) or greater, you understand and agree that the Rhode Island Lottery may use your first name, city or town, and prize amount for promotional, advertising, and/or publicity purposes.  You understand and agree that the Rhode Island Lottery may freely use, reproduce, and display the information in whole or in part, alone or together with other information, through any and all forms of media, in any manner, anywhere, in perpetuity, and without restriction, reservation, or limitation.

iLottery Account Funding Limits – There are limits on the amount you may deposit into your iLottery Account during a given period of time.  The Rhode Island Lottery reserves the right to change these limits at any time.  You have the option of setting lower or higher limits by logging into your iLottery Account and going to "My Limits".  If you set lower limits, for example from one hundred dollars ($100.00) to fifty dollars ($50.00), that change will be effective immediately.  If you raise your limits, for example from fifty dollars ($50.00) to one hundred dollars ($100.00), there will be a twenty-four (24) hour waiting period before that change will become effective.  Individual limits cannot exceed the limits set by the Rhode Island Lottery.  Deposited winnings do not count towards this deposit limit.

Play Limits – There are limits on the amount you may purchase using your iLottery Account during a given period.  The Rhode Island Lottery reserves the right to change these limits at any time.  You have the option of setting lower limits by logging into your iLottery Account and going to "My Limits".  If you set lower limits, that change will be effective immediately.  If you set higher limits, there will be a twenty-four (24) hour waiting period before that change becomes effective.  Individual limits cannot exceed the limits set by the Rhode Island Lottery. 

Transfer of Deposit – Unless required by law, funds you deposit into your iLottery Account cannot be transferred to another account.  You agree that you will not attempt to deny, reverse, charge back, re-credit, block, or otherwise attempt to invalidate, recover, or deny the Rhode Island Lottery receipt of a deposit.  You hereby authorize the Rhode Island Lottery to hold and collect any amount owed to the Rhode Island Lottery as a result of any such fees or penalties from your deposits or winnings.  The Rhode Island Lottery reserves the right to pursue any other means to recover such losses.  Any player deposit and/or bonus offered by the Rhode Island Lottery may not be withdrawn unless required by the law.  Any purchases placed against funds, which are later charged back or invalidated in any way, may be cancelled.

iLottery Account Structure, Deposit Insurance – The funds in your iLottery Account (deposits and winnings) will be held separate from the funds of the Rhode Island Lottery.  No party, including the Rhode Island Lottery, will use your funds for any purposes other than the payment of winnings.  All funds are FDIC insured and are held for player prize payouts.  Any funds in an iLottery Account are subject to the Abandoned Property provisions described below.

iLottery Account Information - Any information you provide in setting up your iLottery Account is subject to the Rhode Island Lottery Privacy Policy.  You are responsible for keeping your iLottery Account login username and password secret and confidential.  If you fail to do so, you are responsible for any charges, costs, expenses, damages, liabilities, and/or losses that you or the Rhode Island Lottery may incur as a result.  If you discover fraudulent or unauthorized purchases or fund transfers, or suspect that your iLottery Account is being used by an unauthorized third party, you must notify the iLottery Player Support Line immediately by calling 800-288-2485.  Providing prompt notice will limit your liability for such fraudulent or unauthorized transactions.  You certify that any information provided to the Rhode Island Lottery in the registration form is complete and accurate.  The Rhode Island Lottery, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to require you to change your iLottery Account login username and/or password if the Rhode Island Lottery deems that your login information is offensive, inappropriate, or otherwise unacceptable. 

Closing Your Account – You may close your iLottery Account at any time by calling the iLottery Player Support Line at 800-288-2485.  You may be required to provide certain information to verify your identity before closing your iLottery Account.  You are responsible for payment of any outstanding balance owed on your iLottery Account.  The Rhode Island Lottery does not guarantee a specific time by which your iLottery Account will be closed.

Terms of Use Relating to ACH Transfers – You authorize Global Payments Gaming Services, Inc.

(Certegy).  The debit for a transaction can post at your financial institution within twenty-four (24) hours from the time you initiate a transaction.  You further authorize all transactions to be debited from the same checking account, and such future debits will take place only when initiated by you; a receipt will be provided for each debit you initiate for the account.  Your authorization will remain in effect until Global Payments, or its Service Provider, has received written notification by you of its termination and up to thirty (30) days has been allowed to process the request.  You understand that checks or debits returned unpaid by your financial institution are subject to a service charge, which also may be debited electronically from your account or collected using a bank draft drawn from your account.

Disputes - 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 (1) arbitrator, named in accordance with such rules.  The arbitrator shall decide the dispute in accordance with the substantive law of the State of Rhode Island.  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 basis 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.
