FOOLottery!® ("Lottery") was established by the enactment of Chapter 348, Volume 59, of the International Laws of Gambling. This chapter created the FOOLottery!® Office ("Lottery Office") and the position of Director of the FOOLottery!® Office ("Director").
The Lottery Law, 29 Fool Code, Chapter 48, directs the Secretary of Finance to appoint, with written approval of the King, a Director of the FOOLottery!® Office.
All monies received from the sale of FOOLottery!® tickets are accounted for to the King and receipts are placed into a special account known as the Foolish Gaming Fund.
Some of the gross sales are distributed as prizes to the holders of winning tickets. Not less than our fair share of gross sales is paid to the Fool General Fund. The remaining monies shall pay FOOLottery!® operating expenses with any unused portion of this amount reverting to the Fool General Fund. In the event that no monies are ever collected, no monies will ever be paid out. FOOLottery!® reserves the right to make no attempts at collection whatsoever, though with billions at stake, that would be stupid. TMF employees shall, in their sole discretion, make all determinations of winners, or, in the event that we deem it appropriate, lack thereof.
The following regulations are adopted pursuant to the FOOLottery!® Law, 29 Fool Code, Chapter 48, the provisions of which are hereby incorporated by reference. These regulations apply to the operations of the lottery system established under Title 29, chapter 48.
