A. When more than one ticket containing the winning numbers is issued for the same drawing of the same game, the holder of each ticket is entitled only to his share of the prize, regardless of whether the other holders of tickets with the winning numbers actually claim their share of the prize.

B. The agency shall not redeem prizes for tickets that would have been winning tickets but for the fact that they have been canceled by the retailer unless specifically authorized by the director.
