Final Ohio Super Lotto Plus drawing Saturday

Ohio LotteryOhio Lottery: Final Ohio Super Lotto Plus drawing Saturday

Super Lotto Plus, the Ohio Lottery Commission’s in-state lotto game, will be retired after the Saturday, October 8 drawing.

There's a twist: if the last jackpot isn't hit, winning players will share in the cash value of the advertised jackpot.

Since its debut in 2000, players have shared almost $631 million in prizes, including 76 jackpot-winning tickets through Sept. 24.

"We've had a good run with Super Lotto Plus," says Ohio Lottery spokesperson Mardele Cohen. "Since its beginning on July 15, 2000, the game has seen more than $1 billion in sales and $312 million in profits after prizes and retailer commissions and bonuses."

Ohio Lottery Commission officials would like to thank their loyal Super Lotto Plus fans with a special offer for this last drawing. If that jackpot is not hit, the cash value of the jackpot prize will be shared proportionately by each lower-tier prize level. Money allocated to each prize category will be divided equally among winning tickets held by players in that category.

Even at the $4 million jackpot level ($2 million cash option), winning players will see a significant increase in prizes.

Each lower-tier prize will share 16.67 percent of the cash value of the jackpot. For example, if the advertised jackpot on October 8 is $4 million, the actual cash value of that jackpot is $2 million.

Well, that's a great twist handled by Ohio SLP last draw. I hope the new game can help Ohio. Why did Ohio SLP is going to be retired?

    The new Lot'O Play which replaces SLP should be more profitable for the state.

    SLP tickets cost $1 - LOP cost $2
    SLP jackpot started at $4M - LOP jackpot starts at $1M
    SLP jackpot roll over min. was $1M - LOP jackpot min. roll over is $100K
    SLP odds of winning jackpot are 1:13.9M per $1 ticket - LOP odds are 1:6.3M per $2 ticket
    SLP players could pick all their numbers - LOP players can pick one of 5 lines of numbers.
    LOP should have more smaller prize winners than SLP had.

    Good luck Ohioplayers.

      That is awesome that they are giving all the money out in the last drawing.  This could lead to huge prizes.  I wish I was in Ohio or near their border.  I sure would be buying tickets for this last drawing.

        And not to mention the jackpot it at $12,000,000....so the cash available to pay prizes will be almost $7,000,000.  I want to go to Ohio now.

          I want to go too! I don't typically splurge on tickets, but this would be one of those $20 trips. This deal is too good to pass up. I see why Ca$h WinFall in MA is gaining a following.

            The prizes I listed above are for only a $4 million jackpot.  It is going to be a $12+ million jackpot by Saturday.

              The $12M+ is the annuity amount, the actual cash will be about half that.  In the recent past jackpots that large have seldom not been won.  With the Finale promotion, the amount of tickets sold should be higher than normal making it more likely the jackpot will be won.  If that happens then it's business as usual.

                  i got my 10 tickets.  the funny part about this is i'll only have to by 1 LOP ticket to get the same amount of numbers.

                  I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

                      Four years ago I matched 5of6 in SLP $1500 and thought if I kept playing I might do better.  I never did and it unlikely I ever will now, so tonight I've put the most common parameters of the 542 past drawings in my RNG to pick 20 lines to play for the last time. I've played this game long before the Plus was added and I'll be sorry to see it go.

                        My 20 lines matched 3 twice which pays $38x2.  If I've had known the payout would be that nice I would have played a hundred lines.

                          They were awesome payouts:

                          Match
                          Final
                          Prize Amount
                          Number of
                          Winners
                          5 + Bonus Ball$500,0002
                          5 No Bonus Ball$35,71528
                          4 + Bonus Ball$13,51474
                          4 No Bonus Ball$6521,535
                          3 + Bonus Ball$4722,119
                          3 No Bonus Ball$3826,878


                          I mean over 100 people won over $10,000.  I wish there was a game more like that.  Have a winfall game but let the jackpot reach $20,000,000 before you roll it down.

                            It is kind of interesting if you total them up

                            5+ bonus = $1,000,000

                            5 + 0        = $1,000,020

                            4 + Bonus = $1,000,036

                            4 + 0        = $1,000,820

                            3 + Bonus = $1,000,168

                            3 + 0          = $1,021,364

                            Total          = $6,022,408

                            It looks like they have a million for each prize tier.  I really wonder how $6,022,408 would really support a $12 million jackpot.  Prizes were nice but I think someone was jipped.
