(b) themselves and another person together; or

as the person on the ticket and the entrant in a Draw. Art Union prizes must be transferred to the person or persons named on the ticket at the time of purchase. For example: any prize home will be registered in the name of the person or persons named on the ticket and no other person. A person purchasing a ticket, whether for themselves or someone else, is deemed to have agreed to and accepted these Terms and Conditions so far as they apply to purchasers of tickets.
2.2 For online purchases, a person nominates themselves or themselves and another person together as entrant in a Draw by establishing an online account (‘Art Union account’) in their name, or in the names of themselves and another person and using that account to purchase a ticket which is not a gift.
2.3 A person who enters a Draw (‘you, your’) is deemed to have accepted and agreed to the Terms and Conditions, unless you received the ticket as a gift. If you received the tickets as a gift, you may elect to cancel the ticket before the closing date of the Draw if you don’t agree with the Terms and Conditions. If you do not cancel the ticket before the closing date, you are deemed to have accepted and agreed to the Terms and Conditions.

2.5 You may not enter the Art Union in the name of a corporate entity, a trust, a self-managed superannuation fund or other fund, an unincorporated association or a syndicate. Any entry where you are named “as trustee for” is also ineligible. Any trustee arrangements are internal matters for you or the purchaser and are not permitted to be stated on the ticket.
2.6 It is your responsibility as an entrant in the Art Union to ensure that you are eligible under all applicable laws (including the laws of your country if you are an overseas resident) to accept the prize should you win the Draw.
2.7 We reserve the right to disqualify entries in the event of non-compliance with the Terms and Conditions.
3.1 We will issue a ticket to you after we receive:
(a) all Entry Details; and
(b) payment in full for the ticket
regardless of whether received from you or another person.
3.2 Once a ticket has been issued, the details associated with that ticket (including your name and address) cannot be amended or updated, however a ticket may be cancelled and a new ticket issued with amended or updated details if you request us to do so before the closing date of the Draw. Art Union prizes must be transferred to the person or persons named on the ticket. For example: any prize home will be registered in the name of the person or persons named on the ticket and no other person.
3.3 Tickets are numbered consecutively within the licensed ticket range however tickets within multiple ticket book purchases may not be consecutively numbered.
3.4 The following pricing applies to tickets in $5 Art Union Lottery Draws:
$5 book – 1 entry;
$10 book – 2 entries – one of which may win first prize, plus a $30,000.00 bonus gold bullion;
$20 book – 5 entries – one of which may win first prize, plus a $40,000.00 bonus gold bullion;
$30 book – 8 entries – one of which may win first prize, plus $55,000.00 bonus gold bullion;
$50 book – 13 entries – one of which may win first prize, plus $85,000.00 bonus gold bullion;
$75 book – 19 entries– one of which may win first prize, plus $105,000.00 bonus gold bullion;
$100 book – 26 entries– one of which may win first prize, plus $135,000.00 bonus gold bullion.
The maximum order that can be placed in one transaction is $1,000 consisting of 10 x $100 books.
3.5 The following pricing applies to tickets in the Golden Treasure draw:
$10 book – 1 entry;
$30 book - 4 entries – one of which may win first prize, plus a $50,000.00 bonus gold bullion;
$50 book – 7 entries – one of which may win first prize, plus $80,000.00 bonus gold bullion;

The maximum order that can be placed in one transaction is $1,500 consisting of 10 x $150 books
3.6 Ticket books must be purchased in a single transaction. Where a ticket within a ticket book is determined as the winning entry, the bonus gold is payable on the value of the ticket book purchased which contains the winning ticket. For the avoidance of doubt, where multiple ticket books are purchased, and a winning ticket is drawn from within one of the ticket books, the bonus gold payable is calculated based on the individual ticket book value that contains the winning ticket and not based on the combined total value of the ticket book purchases.
3.7 Tickets cannot be combined to form a book with gift tickets that are purchased in the same transaction. By way of example only, where an order is placed for one $5 ticket and one $5 gift ticket, these are independent transactions and do not form a $10 book of two entries eligible for $30,000 bonus gold bullion

4.1 Where a ticket or ticket book is purchased as a gift:
(a) the gift recipient, and not the purchaser, will be the entrant in the Draw;

4.2 If the purchaser is a VIP member and purchases a ticket as a gift for someone else, the purchaser will be entered into subsequent draws in accordance with the purchaser’s nominated subscription amount and not the gift recipient.

Both account holders together will be taken to be a single VIP member for the purpose of the Weekly Bonus Draw and Quarterly Bonus Draw.
