The participant (each an entrant) must legibly print their name and contact information (phone and/or email and/or mailing address) on the ticket stub in the space allowed or on the back of the stub. The participant must retain the main section of the ticket as proof of having the winning number. The stub will be retained by LAMP and stored in a secure location until the time of the drawing.
