Bay Treasure Chest – July 13, 2016 – Update

WE APOLOGIZE FOR THE DELAY IN ANNOUNCING THE RESULT

After a thorough review by the Board of the Bay Treasure Chest (BTC) we can now announce the result of the July 13 Draw.  Thank you for your patience while we determined the right course of action.

After drawing the winning number on July 13, the count volunteers had great difficulty in determining if the number had been played, due to the legibility of the number written on the sticker.

We sought advice from the Nova Scotia Gaming Division and a legal opinion from a lawyer about how to proceed.  We reviewed the sticker with the poorly written number and the data we capture each week, including playing patterns for every registered number.

After digesting all this information, the BTC Board voted unanimously that, in the clear balance of probability, the sticker in question was the number drawn and therefore we are now happy to be able to finally announce the following:

  • July 13 Draw:        We have a winner!
  • Number Drawn:     270   Prize Amount:       $6,902
  • Winner:                 Marion Coolen of Simms Settlement

The Board of BTC also voted unanimously to expand our Lottery House Rule #4, printed on the back of registration slips and published on our web site and in our brochures, which currently says “You must place your number on a toonie, and place it in the treasure chest box in order to win” to add the following:

Your number must be written legibly on the sticker. Any number that cannot be unanimously interpreted by three of the BTC staff at the weekly count will be disqualified from that week’s draw.  All Management decisions on the interpretation of numbers on the stickers are final.

We know it’s obvious, but we need to stress that it is your responsibility as a player to write your number clearly on the sticker which you place on your toonie.  It is BTC’s responsibility to have rigorous processes in place to process your toonie to ensure the number you play is recorded in each draw when played.  If we can’t reasonably determine what number is written on the sticker, that creates a problem that no reasonable process can overcome.

We offer the following tips that are in your benefit to follow:

  • Black or dark blue ball point pens are recommended, but be aware that some use ink which needs at least a little time to dry
  • Use of felt tip pens is discouraged, particularly those with non-permanent ink and/or thick points.
  • The best technique to use is:
    • tear off a sticker from the roll with the backing paper attached
    • place the sticker and backing paper on a smooth, flat surface
    • write your number on the sticker
    • if in any doubt about whether the number is clearly legible, discard the sticker and start again
    • when you’re sure the ink is dry, discard the backing paper and place the sticker on your toonie, and deposit the stickered toonie in the Bay Treasure Chest.

Please help us to help you, if you are the winner, by ensuring we can read your number!

NEXT DRAW:  Wed July 20   PRIZE ESTIMATE:  $6,500!

Remember to play your toonie before noon

Bay Treasure Chest – July 13, 2016

RESULT NOT AVAILABLE YET

The officials at this week’s count would like to advise you that at this time it cannot be determined whether the number drawn was played.  The sticker in question was poorly written and could not be deciphered accurately.  The BTCA Board is investigating, we need to take the time to do our due diligence well and come to the right decision. 

 We will announce the draw results when we’ve completed our investigation.  Please be advised that we may not have the result until next week.  Your patience is appreciated.

 To avoid this situation happening again in the future it is imperative that all numbers are written legibly.
