(a) In addition to the Tri-State Lotto Compact provided for in subchapter 2 of this chapter, and the other authority to operate lotteries contained in this chapter, the commission is authorized to negotiate and contract with up to four multijurisdictional lotteries to offer and provide multijurisdictional lottery games. The commission may join any multijurisdictional lottery that provides indemnification for its standing committee members, officers, directors, employees, and agents. The commission shall adopt rules under chapter 25 of Title 3 to govern the establishment and operation of any multijurisdictional lottery game authorized by this section.
(b) In each fiscal year, the revenues received from the operation of any multijurisdictional lottery game authorized by this section, after payment of prizes and costs of administration, shall be deposited in the education fund established in section 4025 of Title 16.
(c) The provisions of subdivisions 674L.1.1A through 674L.1.1I of this title shall apply to the payment of prizes to a person other than a winner for prizes awarded under any multijurisdictional lottery authorized by this section, except that the Vermont lottery commission shall be responsible for implementing such provisions under this section, rather than the Tri-State Lotto Commission.
