Assembly and packaging of pull-tab series.

When assembling and packaging a pull-tab series, manufacturers must:
(1) Place each pull-tab series in one packaging container, unless the number of tickets in the series exceeds 10,000. For pull-tab series that contain more than 10,000 tickets, manufacturers may package the pull-tab series in more than one container if they:
(a) Seal all containers with a sticker or seal and shrink wrap them; and
(b) Identically label each container with a referencing system that identifies at least:
(i) The series number; and
(ii) The total boxes per series; and
(iii) The I.D. stamp numbers; and
(c) Mark the cases to identify the contents during shipping, including:
(i) The series number; and
(ii) The total cases per set; and
(d) Package and ship each box or case together; and
(e) Package the packing slip and flare with one box of the series; and
(f) Ensure that no case, package, box or container shall be marked to make it distinguishable from any other case, package, box or container within the series; and
(2) Not assemble the winning and losing pull-tabs in a way that would allow prize manipulation; and
(3) Mix pull-tabs before placing them in their final container to ensure pull-tabs are separated from their original collated row position and dispersed among all rows in the container; and
(4) Place a packing slip inside the container with the name of manufacturer, series number, date of packaging, and the name or identification of the person who packaged the series. Manufacturers may print this information on the flare or the outside of the container. Manufacturers must have this information readily available if we request it; and
(5) Print on the outside of the container a message stating that operators must remove the pull-tabs from the container and thoroughly mix them before putting them out for play. Manufacturers must:
(a) Print the information on:
(i) A crack-and-peel sticker and place it on the outside of the packaging container; or
(ii) A packing slip placed inside the container; or
(b) Request our approval to exempt packages of jar tickets from this requirement.
