Determination of winner; pickle cards; requirements.

(1) The winning cards, boards, or tickets in any lottery by the sale of pickle cards shall be determined by a comparison of those numbers, letters, symbols, or configurations, or combination thereof, which are revealed on the pickle cards, to a set of numbers, letters, symbols, or configurations, or combination thereof, which has been previously specified as a winning combination.

The winning chances shall be determined by and based upon an element of chance.

(3) Any person possessing a winning pickle card shall receive the appropriate cash prize previously determined and specified for that winning combination.
