     The Public Hearing (via video conference) was called to

Denver Lottery Office.

     Chair Reeve began the Public Hearing with introductions
from attendees in the Denver and Pueblo offices.

     Chair Reeve next called for the items on the Public Hearing
Agenda. He requested that Bev Saidel, Internet Coordinator
present the Rules.

     Ms. Saidel reviewed Permanent Rule 6.VU, 7-11-21, Game No.
423 and Rule 6.VV, Indiana Jones, Game No. 424. She described
the features of the game, including the price point, the play
style, the prize amounts, the number of times players may win on
a ticket, the number of tickets, and the projected launch date
for the games. Ms. Saidel stated staff was requesting approval
and adoption of Permanent Rule 6.VU, 7-11-21, Game No. 423 and
Rule 6.VV, Indiana Jones, Game No. 424. Chair Reeve inquired if
there were any comments from the Commission. Commissioner
McMahan asked if a commission is paid on the Indiana Jones game.
Todd Greco, Scratch Product Manager, stated that the Lottery
pays 2% on actual sales. Mr. Greco stated that if the game
sells out, it would be approximately $75,000. Mr. Greco also
stated that the Lottery is receiving additional benefits for
that licensing fee. Vice-Chair Wise inquired if our logo will
be in the movie theaters. Mr. Greco stated that is not part of
our licensing fee. Chair Reeve requested Mr. Greco include an
information document with each licensed property game that
describes the details of each licensed property. Chair Reeve
inquired if there were any comments from the public. There were
none. Commissioner Keesee made a motion to approve and adopt
Permanente Rule 6.VU, 7-11-21, Game No. 423 and Rule 6.VV,
Indiana Jones, Game No. 424. The motion was seconded by
Commissioner McMahan and passed unanimously.
     Ms. Saidel next reviewed Amended Permanent Rule 5. Ms.
Saidel explained that an amendment to Rule 5 was presented at
the January, 2008 meeting, which was tabled for a future
meeting. Ms. Saidel continued by stating Rule 5 is being
reviewed in its entirety as part of the Rule Housekeeping
project. Ms. Saidel stated that the Commission could choose to
pass the amendment presented in January or wait until Rule 5 is
presented in May with the completed changes. Chair Reeve stated
he prefers to wait for the completed Rule 5. The Commissioners
agreed.

     Chair Reeve called for the next item, Public Comment.
