    2. If not present, the game administrator will select the card number designated on the raffle ticket or the next closest available card number if the designated card number has been drawn.  If the next highest and lowest available card number are equidistant from the designated card number, the game administrator will flip a coin and choose the next highest card number if the coin is heads or the next lowest card number if the coin is tails.
