After tonight, Ohio players will have two more chances to win the Super Lotto game before it's history.  Rolling Cash5 will be the only local game for systems jackpot players.  The new bingo style game will be mostly QPs since the player can only pick one of the 12 combinations that can win.  Good thing Ohio has MegaMillions or many of its regular players would be heading for the boarders.  Good luck Ohioplayers.

    Well, if Mega Millons wasn't around, they wouldn't change in the first place. I hope they bring back some kind of pick-6 game later down the road, even if it's a low matrix game.

        A $2 price tag isn't bad at all for the way they set up the game.  Not only do you have a 1 in 5 chance of winning your money back which is really great odds for a jackpot game but every 100th ticket sold nets you $10 bucks.  Buy 100 tickets and you would win 20 times and win $10.  The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 6+ million which isn't bad for a starting 1 million jackpot.

          Keep in mind that the jackpot is annuitized (over 26 annual payments). I was less than enthused when I found that out. Still, those still great overall odds. It's just as good as a NY scratcher. And you can choose what numbers you want on the top row, and where you want them.

          Gotta pity the sysyem players though. At least we have Lucky For Life in PA. Top prize and price leaves a lot to be desired, but hey, at least it can be wheeled.

            Being from Texas, had you been playing the other Ohio games?

              SLP is paid in 30 annual installments. Are you saying $1 million is too low for a 30-payment annuity?

                Lot 'O Play pays over 26 payments.

                  It has finally come, the last day to play this game.

                  Good luck Ohioplayers if you play.

                    If I lived in Ohio I probably wouldn't miss SLP much. Lot O' Play needs a floating cash option (percentage of the annuity) instead of a flat 50% cash value, especially with a shorter annuity.
