10. 1 WINNINGS IN PRIZE CATEGORY A
10.1.1 The Winnings payable in respect of each Insured Winning Bet in Prize Category A (as defined in the table), will depend on the number of the Underlying Lottery Winning Tickets in that Prize Category, the number of Insured Winning Bets in that Prize Category, the Prize payable by the Underlying Lottery Operator for any Underlying Lottery Winning Tickets in that Prize Category, as well as, the Underlying Lottery Jackpot in that Prize Category.
10.1.2 The Winnings in Prize Category A are calculated on the basis of the amount of aggregate stakes published by the Underlying Lottery Operator as well as the distribution to that Jackpot Prize Category, or, on the basis of the jackpot published on the website of the Underlying Lottery Operator for that Prize Category of the relevant draw of the Underlying Lottery.
10.2 ONLY ONE INSURED WINNING BET IN PRIZE CATEGORY A
10.2.1 If there is only one Insured Winning Bet in Prize Category A, the Winnings payable in respect of the Winning Bet are calculated as follows:
Winnings = Underlying Lottery Jackpot in that Prize Category A / Number of Underlying Lottery Jackpot Winning Tickets in that Prize Category A + 1
Example 1: There is only one Insured Winning Bet in the Prize Category A and no Underlying Lottery Winning Ticket has been announced by the Underlying Lottery Operator in the Type A Prize Category in respect of an Underlying Lottery Jackpot in the Type A Prize Category of 90,000,000.00 EUR.

10.3 MORE THAN ONE INSURED WINNING BET IN THE PRIZE CATEGORY A
10.3.1 If there is more than one Insured Winning Bet in the Prize Category A, the Winnings payable in respect of the Insured Winning Bets in the Prize Category A are calculated based on a “Share Model”, consisting of three steps.
1. Calculation of the number of shares:
Number of shares = Number of Underlying Lottery Jackpot Winning Tickets in that Prize Category + Number of Insured Winning Bets in that Prize Category
2. Calculation of Size of each share:
Size of 1 share = Underlying Lottery Jackpot in that Prize Category / Number of shares
3. Allocation of Winnings:
1 share per Insured Winning Bet in that Prize Category
Example 3: There are two Insured Winning Bets in Prize Category A and one Underlying Lottery Jackpot Winning Ticket has been announced by the Underlying Lottery Operator in the Prize Category A in respect of an Underlying Lottery Jackpot in the Prize Category A of 90,000,000.00 EUR. There are three payout shares, with a size of 30,000,000.00 EUR each. The Winnings payable in respect of each Insured Winning Bet in the Prize Category A amounts to 30,000,000.00 EUR.

10.4.2 The Insurer calculates the Winnings in Prize Category B on the basis of the amount of aggregate stakes published by the Underlying Lottery Operator as well as the distribution to that Jackpot Prize Category or on the basis of the jackpot published on the Website of the Underlying Lottery Operator for that Prize Category of the relevant draw of the Underlying Lottery.
10.5 ONLY ONE INSURED WINNING BET IN PRIZE CATEGORY B
10.5.1 If there is only one Insured Winning Bet in Prize Category B, the Winnings payable in respect of this Insured Winning Bet are calculated as:
Winnings = Underlying Lottery Jackpot in that Prize Category B / (Underlying Lottery Jackpot Winning Tickets in that Prize Category B + 1)
Example 1: There is only one Insured Winning Bet in Prize Category B and no Underlying Lottery Winning Ticket has been announced by the Underlying Lottery Operator in that Prize Category B in respect of an Underlying Lottery Jackpot in Prize Category B of 9,000,000.00 EUR. The Winnings payable in respect of that single Insured Winning Bet amount to 9,000,000.00 EUR.
Example 2: There is only one Insured Winning Bet in Prize Category B and two Underlying Lottery Jackpot Winning Tickets have been announced by the Underlying Lottery Operator in that Prize Category B in respect of a Underlying Lottery Jackpot in Prize Category B of 9,000,000.00 EUR. The Winnings payable in respect of that single Insured Winning Bet amount to 3,000,000.00 EUR.
10.6 MORE THAN ONE INSURED WINNING BET IN PRIZE CATEGORY B
10.6.1 If there is more than one Insured Winning Bet in Prize Category B, the Winnings payable in respect of these Insured Winning Bets are calculated based on a Share Model, consisting of three steps:
1. Calculation of the number of shares:
Number of shares = Number of Underlying Lottery Winning Tickets in that Prize Category + Number of Insured Winning Bets in that Prize Category
2. Calculation of Size of each share:
Size of 1 share = Underlying Lottery Jackpot / Number of shares
3. Allocation of Winnings:
1 share per Insured Winning Bet in that Prize Category
Example 3: There are two Insured Winning Bets in Prize Category B and one Underlying Lottery Winning Ticket has been announced by the Underlying Lottery Operator in that Prize Category B in respect of an Underlying Lottery Jackpot in Prize Category B of 3,000,000.00 EUR.

10.7 WINNINGS IN PRIZE CATEGORY C
10.7.1 The Winnings to be paid out in respect of each Insured Winning Bet in Prize Category C, for example Class 4 in EuroMillions, shall be the amount of the Prize announced by the Underlying Lottery Operator in respect of an Underlying Lottery Winning Ticket in the respective Prize Category.
10.7.2 If the Underlying Lottery Operator has not announced a Prize in the respective Class for the relevant draw of the Underlying Lottery, the Winnings payable in respect of each Insured Winning Bet in that Class will be calculated on the basis of the aggregate amounts paid in for the relevant draw of the Underlying Lottery announced by the Underlying Lottery Operator and its allocation to the winning Class.
10.8 PAYOUT OF PRIZES IN MEGAMILLIONS AND POWERBALL For MUSL Mega Millions and Powerball Lottery Draws, the Winner will be paid an amount equal to: (a) 60% of the Winnings in Prize Category A to reflect that MUSL only pays 60% of the amount of the winnings in Prize Category A if We or the Insurer elect to pay such winnings in a lump sum rather than as an annuity over 30 years (“Lump Sum Amount”); LESS (b) a percentage of the Lump Sum Amount, in order to put the Winner in a similar economic position as if it had played the Underlying Lottery as a non- US resident in the US state.
10.9 PAYOUT OF PRIZES IN SUPERENAMAX SuperEnaMax is a derivative game in which Winnings do not necessarily correspond to the numbers drawn in the Underlying Lottery and the Winnings are always insured by Us with an Insurer.

10.10 PAYOUT OF PRIZES IN MEGA MILLIONS MAX AND POWERBALL PLUS Mega Millions Max and Powerball Plus are derivative games in which Winnings do not necessarily correspond to the amounts of the Underlying Lottery which the games are based upon. The Jackpots in prize category A for these games will be insured by the Insurer or Insurer's Group and any prize amounts announced by Us in Prize Category A and B for these games will follow the same rules as the underlying lottery that the particular game is based upon.
10.11 Special Jackpots For all games, Play UK Internet N.V.. has the option to announce a Special Jackpot/s at its sole discretion and in conjunction with the Insurer or Insurer’s Group. For these Special Jackpot/s Play UK Internet N.V.. may at its sole discretion increase the ticket price. In the case that a Special Jackpot is announced, then the Special Jackpot sum announced will replace any Underlying Lottery Jackpot in that Type A Prize Category. Special Jackpot bets will be insured by the Insurer or Insurer’s Group and the payouts of prizes for these Special Jackpots will follow the same rules as the underlying lottery that the particular game is based upon. Prize Category A winners of Special Jackpots will split the amount amongst the total number of winning bets placed with the Insurer or Insurer’s Group for that particular game.
