349.1711 Conduct of tipboards.
Subdivision 1. Sale of tickets. Tipboard games must be played using only tipboard tickets that are either (1) attached to a placard and arranged in columns or rows, or (2) separate from the placard and contained in a receptacle while the game is in play. The placard serves as the game flare. The placard must contain a seal that conceals the winning number or symbol. When a tipboard ticket is purchased and opened, each player having a tipboard ticket with one or more predesignated numbers or symbols must sign the placard at the line indicated by the number or symbol on the tipboard ticket.
Subd. 2. Determination of winners. When the predesignated numbers or symbols have all been purchased, or all of the tipboard tickets for that game have been sold, the seal must be removed to reveal a number or symbol that determines which of the predesignated numbers or symbols is the winning number or symbol. A tipboard may also contain consolation winners that need not be determined by the use of the seal.
Subd. 3. Prizes. Cash or merchandise prizes may be awarded in a tipboard game. All prizes available in each game must be stated on the game flare.
Subd. 4. Tipboard rules. The board may by rule permit tipboard games with multiple seals. The board may also adopt rules for cumulative or carryover tipboard prizes.
