I have confirmation from the Ohio Lottery that the new Lot O' Play game (which began last night) is drawn using a traditional lottery ball machine, not computers.

I have updated the State Lottery Report Card, and I'm pleased to say that Ohio has maintained their A+ grade.

 

Check the State Lottery Report Card
What grade did your lottery earn?

    I think it's great that you keep the board updated on this stuff Todd! =)

    I didn't know that Idaho had computerized the Pick 3 game, which s*ucks by the way.

    Dance like no one is watching.

      That Report Card is available in the Results menu, but a lot of people miss it.

      I always advise people to go exploring through all the menu options.  You will find tons of interesting stuff.

        I had a feeling they'd be using balls. I'm almost certain they're using a Saturn (the one they use for Lotto South). Now that would make for an interesting drawing, 100 balls bouncing around!

          By the way, what machine are they actually using? Was I right the first time?

            They were using a Criterion for SLP, but I haven't seen a draw with LoP yet... I'll try to find out... I can get a Toledo station at my house with pretty good clarity. I do know that for RC5 they use an Emerald and Standard Daily's for Pick 3 & 4.

              comp:

              I'd try to watch a LoP draw soon. It doesn't look like it will be around long.

                The payout for the fifth Wednesday LoP was a record low for a Wednesday draw. The last two Wednesday drawings paid out just over $250,000 each.
