Ohio Lottery rings in the New Year with raffle

Ohio LotteryOhio Lottery: Ohio Lottery rings in the New Year with raffle

For four lucky Ohio lottery players, 2010 will begin with a windfall of one million dollars.

The winning numbers for the Ohio Lottery's New Year's Raffle game were announced this evening.  The full list of lottery results can be found on Lottery Post's Ohio Lottery Results page (www.lotterypost.com/results/oh).

The $20 tickets for the raffle went on sale Nov. 20.  500,000 tickets were available.

This is the third consecutive New Year's Raffle for the Ohio Lottery.  The game has "the best odds to win $1 million dollars," according to the game's official literature.

The odds of winning $1 million are 1 in 125,000.

In addition to the four top prizes of $1 million each, other cash prizes are available from $100 to $10,000.

  • 4 prizes of $1,000,000 (odds 1 in 125,000)
  • 10 prizes of $10,000 (odds in 50,000)
  • 120 prizes of $1,500 (odds in 4,167)
  • 1,000 prizes of $500 prize (odds 1 in 500)
  • 2,200 prizes of $100 prize (odds 1 in 227)

Last year's instant prizes have been replaced this year with an increased number of lower-tier prizes available in the raffle drawing.

All prizes are lump-sum cash payments.

Winners of the top two prizes can redeem their prizes starting Monday, Jan. 4, 2009 at the Ohio Lottery office.  Other winners can cash their winning tickets at lottery retailers starting Jan. 3.

          Oh, one more thing.  Hang on to your non-winning tickets because usually a couple of days after the drawing the Ohio Lottery will post to turn your non-winning tickets in to any Giant Eagle store to be eligible to win prizes from the store like a $500 gift card, free lottery tickets and free gas!

                That's my fault, sorry.  I was in a rush and I left the 38,000 part in there accidentally.  I have updated the story to remove that remark.

                  I was wondering about that too because this year, the first ticket sold was ticket #500000. In the past when Ohio didn't sell out, they only drew from the tickets sold without a decrease in the prizes and I saw many winning tickets numbered below #038000.

                    come on up to michigan, we got a good raffle, if all the tickets aren't sold by the draw date , they extend the date until they are sold.

                      Have they ever just hold drawing anyway regardless? There are only 2 days left and 160,000 tix left. Was hoping for better odds. oh well

                        The worst thing a lottery could do is extending the drawing date or restructure the prize fund!

                        Especially when the raffles have a holiday theme. Players lose confidence in a lottery when a Christmas raffle is extended until Good Friday or a 4th of July raffle is extended to Labor Day. Ohio had to sell 250,000 raffle tickets to break even so even if they "only" sold 400,000 tickets, they would still made a nice profit. Making an announcement the drawing would be extended or the prize fund would be cut two days before the scheduled drawing date because they didn't make a big enough profit, would certainly be bad for business.

                          Some state lotteries have done that and paid out exactly what the advertised while others have extended drawing dates and/or restructured prize funds. If any state lottery can't sell half the tickets before the drawing date, somebody made a poor decision and should be fired. Once they cross the half way point and still decide to extend the date or reduce prizes, the entire lottery staff should be fired.

                            Well they wimp out and extend it to 1/20 with 150,000 tix left. I would rather see them do that and make some profit so there will be more raffle in the future.  Of course I gonna be holding one of the winning  mil dollar ticket  so it would be a good send-off Big Smile
