22. Liability of the Company: The Company is not liable toward any person in the case of superior force. In all other cases, whether the liability is contractual or ex delicto, including negligence on its part or that of its employees, the Company is not liable toward any person unless the participant’s selection and wager were forwarded to it before the awarding of prizes. In the latter case, if the claim is based on a valid winning lottery ticket, the Company’s liability is limited to the value of the prize won with the lottery ticket. Otherwise it is limited to the amount of the claimant’s wager.
