The NCEL reserves the right to change the Lucke-Rewards™ program at any time and in any format or to terminate the program with prior notice to its members. The Lucke-Rewards™ program is operated by MDI Entertainment, LLC, a subsidiary of Scientific Games International, Inc. (collectively referred to as “MDI”). Members are limited to entering a total of seventy five (75) tickets per day, which include game tickets for any second-chance drawing promotions. Members earn Points for entering NCEL Scratch-Off game tickets through the Lucke-Zone®/Lucke-Rewards™ website.
Points have no monetary or property value nor directly associated with the face value of tickets entered. Point value will be revealed upon the successful submission of each eligible ticket. Each eligible ticket has a point value based upon a range of values assigned by the NCEL. Points are not transferable for any reasons, including upon death of a Member or in domestic dispute matter. Point balances from more than one account will not be combined.
The NCEL reserves the right to invalidate Points and/or entries into any drawings if it determines that such Points were obtained fraudulently or improperly and/or from tickets deemed lost or stolen or not sold pursuant to the North Carolina Lottery Act or any NCEL rules and regulations. The NCEL also reserves the right to suspend and/or terminate any Lucke-Zone®/Lucke-Rewards™ account if the NCEL suspects that a Member has engaged in any misrepresentation or fraudulent activities, or failed to comply with these Terms and Conditions or any rules associated with the Lucke-Zone®/Lucke-Rewards™ program. If a Member’s account has been terminated, the Member forfeits any Points accrued to date.
The NCEL reserves the right to modify the drawings available for participation in, as well as their corresponding Point values, at any time for any reason. Point redemptions for drawings are final and the Points will be deducted immediately from Member’s account. The odds of a Member being selected to win a prize in each drawing depend upon the number of entries (received through Points) from all Members. Drawing entries are eligible for one drawing only. A Member may win no more than one prize in any drawing. Points used for drawing entries may not be canceled or return.
The NCEL or its designee shall attempt to contact each drawing winner via the telephone, email address and/or address provided by the Member via his/her account. The Member forfeits any prize if the NCEL or its designee is unable to contact the winner, or the winner fails to claim within the specified period as determined by the NCEL. In cases of forfeiture, the NCEL shall replace the winner with an alternate, and the person who was previously selected as a winner is no longer entitled to the prize.
