I thought 12 plays for $2 was too good to be true, and it is. After purchasing my tickets, I found out that only the highest prize out of all 12 sets of numbers wins a prize. It isn't like Match 6 or MD's Lotto where each set can win you a prize. Only one set of numbers can win you a prize. I understand why OH did that, but they really should have said something before selling the tickets.

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.

      You should have read the Ohio lottery website before you bought a ticket.  All that information was there.  Only one prize per play.

        This sounds like the drawing will be a computerized drawing
         
        It is hard to believe that they will have numbered balls in a hopper from 00 - 99.
         
        And only draw five of them for a jackpot win.
         
        I guess we will find out on Wednesday. I have not heard any confirmation on how the
        numbers will be "drawn" for this game? It seems strange that you can place your numbers in any order?

          It's played like bingo, but only 5 numbers are called.  The position of the numbers is just as important as the number.

            Cash4Life had 100 numbers, and it was drawn with balls.

              One should look at Lot'O Play as a 5/100 game with odds of 1:75,287,520 which are reduced to 1:6,273,960 as result of having 12 combinations on the board that can win a prize.  Since the player can only choose one of those twelve combinations means it's mostly a quick pick jackpot game.  Systems and software will have little effect on this game since most of the numbers and their positions on the boards are picked randomly by the terminals.  Players who think systems and software give them an advantage  will not like this games.

                I may give LOT'O PLAY a try.  Here's a RNG I wrote in GWBasic to pick all 100 numbers randomly in 20 lines.  I may use my birth date as my lucky number and play the first five lines.  Good luck if you play.

                RJOh

                10 REM RNG FOR LOT O PLAY
                20 DIM N(100)
                30 COLOR 0,3:CLS:INPUT "LUCKY NUMBER  ";LU
                40 RANDOMIZE LU
                50 FOR X=1 TO 5
                60 N=FIX(RND*100)
                70 FOR Y=1 TO C:IF N=N(Y) THEN 60
                80 NEXT Y:C=C+1:N(C)=N
                90 IF N<10 THEN N$="0"+RIGHT$(STR$(N),1) ELSE N$=RIGHT$(STR$(N),2)
                100 PRINT N$;" ";:NEXT X
                110 PRINT:IF C<100 THEN 50 ELSE END
