I sent an e mail to the Ohio Lottery Commission. Here is the response that I received:
Sounds "promising" for the "Ten-Oh" players we have here on the "Lottery Post"!
I "X'd" out my name and the responder's name. Very pleased that I heard a prompt reply!

Subject: Ten-OH drawings
Hello Ohio Lottery:
I know that the Ten-Oh drawings are drawn from a "computerized" configuration.
But, what I would like to know, is if the "computerized" configuration has any thing to do with
individual picks at the Ohio Lottery Sales Locations? Are the picks generated by "played tickets"
configured into the "system" so to speak of when the numbers are drawn or totally random?
I hope that they are "not".
Could you please let me know the correct answer on this question.
I would surely appreciate your response on this.
The answer can determine on how people play the "Ten-Oh" game.
Let me know as soon as you can give me a "plausible" answer.
Thank you for your time.

In response to your question regarding Ten--OH!, please know that the
random number generator, which selects the numbers, is in no way linked
to the gaming system. The Random Number Generator is housed at the
Channel 5 studios, along with our other drawing equipment.
I hope this fully addresses your concerns, and if not, feel free to
contact us again.
Thank you for your interest in the Ohio Lottery!
