Ohio Lottery Games

Founded in May 1973, the first Ohio Lottery draw took place in August the following year. Today, the Ohio Lottery offers a wide range of multi-jurisdictional and state-wide games, with multiple chances to win significant sums of cash every day.

Proceeds from the Ohio Lottery have been used as a revenue stream for state education at all levels since 1983.

Powerball

Powerball is a world-famous lottery renowned for its long odds and often lucrative jackpots.

Powerball tickets cost $2.00, with players choosing five numbers between 1 and 69 plus a Powerball number between 1 and 26. Players can choose numbers manually or go for a Quick Pick. A Power Play option is also available, costing $1.00 for the chance to multiply non-jackpot prizes by up to 10 times.

Players can add Double Play to their ticket for an additional $1.00 using the same set of chosen numbers, for an extra draw with a $10 million jackpot.

Mega Millions

Mega Millions is another world-renowned lottery that’s even harder to win than Powerball, but with a very similar format.

As with Powerball, tickets cost $2.00.

Players must choose five numbers between 1 and 70 and a Mega Ball number between 1 and 25, with a Quick Pick option also being available for random selections. Mega Millions has an additional Megaplier feature for $1.00, for the chance to boost non-jackpot prizes by up to 10 times.

Lucky for Life

Lucky for Life is a popular lottery game played across 23 states and the District of Columbia, giving players the chance to win $1,000 a day (paid out as $365,000 annually) for the rest of their lives, or the option to take home a lump sum of $5.75 million.

Tickets cost $2.00, with players choosing five main numbers from 1 to 48 and a Lucky Ball number between 1 and 18. Quick Pick is also available for random selections.

Classic Lotto

Classic Lotto is a traditional 6 from 49 lottery that costs just $1.00 to enter.

Players need to choose six numbers from 1 to 49 or can go for a Quick Pick for random selections.

For an extra $1.00, players can add a KICKER for the chance to win prizes from $10 to $100,000.

KENO

KENO has multiple entry and stake-based options, plus the opportunity to enhance the base prize by adding a prize multiplier.

Players must decide on how many numbers to match from 1 to 10, before choosing the relevant number of selections between 1 and 80. Quick Picks are available for random selections, with participants choosing a stake of $1.00, $2.00, $3.00, $4.00, $5.00, $10 and $20.

Players can also add a Booster as a prize multiplier, chosen before each draw to multiply prizes by up to 10 times.

Rolling Cash 5

Rolling Cash 5 is a straightforward lottery game that costs just $1.00 to enter.

Players must choose five numbers from 1 to 39 or can go for a Quick Pick to enter with random selections.

Pick 5

Pick 5 has multiple entry options, with stakes of $0.50 and $1.00 being available.

Players must choose five numbers from 0 to 9, and because each number is chosen independently, repeat selections can be made. Participants then select the type of bet to place, with exact order, any order, front and back pair, front and back three, and front and back four options available.

Pick 4

Pick 4 has multiple entry options, with stakes of $0.50 or $1.00 being available.

Players must choose four numbers from 0 to 9, and because each number is chosen independently, the same number can be chosen repeatedly if desired. Participants then choose whether to bet on matching their numbers in the order drawn or in any order.

Pick 3

Pick 3 has multiple entry options, with stakes of $0.50 or $1.00 being available.

Players must choose three numbers from 0 to 9, and because each number is chosen independently, the same number can be chosen repeatedly if desired. Players then select the type of bet to place, with exact order, any order, front and back pair, and split pair options available.

Participants can also go for a WHEEL bet: essentially a Combo entry with every possible combination of the numbers on the ticket. This increases the odds of winning, but results in a ticket price of $3.00 or $6.00.

The Lucky One

The Lucky One is a straightforward single-number lottery game. Entry starts at $1.00, with stakes of up to $50 being available.

Players choose a single number between 1 and 36 or can go for a Quick Pick for randomly chosen selections. Alternatively, participants can specify an odd or even number or a high or low number chosen at random.
