Each draw will select one (1) winner when after winning token is selected from the draw drum at random. After the token number is read aloud, confirmed and recorded, it is then deemed to be the valid winner. In the event that a token is drawn, and it is identified, after the reading of the token number, that the corresponding ticket is unsold, another token will be drawn without the token drum being spun. A draw will only be deemed valid and complete upon final confirmation and recording by Grant Thornton and YLotto staff.
