Does anyone know if the OH Lot O' Play drawibngs are televised?  Also, do they use an RNG or ball machine?

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.

      I have a feeling that this game won't be around this time next year. Marrying bingo with lotto seemed like a good idea, and I'd like to see an all-cash version pop up elsewhere.

        The payout for the fifth Saturday LoP was a record low for a Saturday and a significant drop from Week 4. The $300+ million Mega jackpot must be hurting LoP.

          I know they are televised. On Wednesdays, it's at 7:29pm. Saturdays, it's during Cash Explosion - around 7:45pm. Still waiting on word from the OLC on what machine they are using for it. Doesn't seem like a Saturn (or a Criterion, which is what they were using for SLP) would hold 100 balls. Guess I could just watch a drawing and find out.

          AFAIK, the jackpot has not been hit since the game was introduced. I thought the odds were supposed to be BETTER- not worse. Shows you why the payouts are so low - no one can hit the JP.

            Lot'O Play will never be attractive to those players who like large jackpots and system players who like to pick all their own numbers and Ohio had to know that from the getgo.  Over all LOP may be making more money for the state than SLP did, if not it will be replaced within a year.

              I agree. There isn't any fun in the game when you are forced to do something that you may not want to do. If they get rid of it, I hope they replace it with a good MI-OH joint venture. Just don't let MI get ahold of any of the drawings, because they will RNG them in a heartbeat.

              This is also something that needs to be addressed: the odds are supposedly 1 in 6,273,960 but you could calculate them as 1 in 75,287,520. The bigger number is your actual odds if you pick your own numbers (the top line only) and the odds of each other individual line. They divide it by 12 to advertise lower odds, but I don't see that as true.

                 As I stated in an earlier post, the facts will speak for themselves over time.  The odds of winning is 1:75,287,520 but because you get twelve ways to win it's actually 75,287,520/12 = 1:6,273,960 for a $2 ticket and the SLP was  1:13,983,816 for a $1 ticket which was actually 1:6,991,908 for $2.  Unlike LOP, each chance in SLP could win but in LOP only one of the 12 chances to win can win anything so you aren't getting 12 chances to win something but 1 of 12 chances to win.  With a smaller jackpots and less payout, the game may be more profitable for the state, but not for the players.

                  The payouts for LoP continue to decrease. Players won less than $250,000 in the Wednesday, 11/16 drawing.

                    The jackpot is still increasing quite a bit though....is the $250,000 about a normal amount?

                      Hmmm...Cash the way I see that game is that it is just a 5 of 100 game where you get to pick one set of numbers and you get 4 easy picks and 7 partial picks for your buck.  Or you could think of it as a 5 of 100 game with 12 easy picks.

                        Anyone wondering about any drawing in the USA should click on the State Lottery Report Card in the Results menu.  All the data is right there on drawings.

                        Also, even more info is available about each and every game.  Go to the results page for any state, then click on a game and select "Game Information".

                        Sometimes people don't realize all the info available to them right here on LP.  They think the information must be out there somewhere, but never stop to think that they should explore more right here.

                         

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

                          "Also, even more info is available about each and every game.  Go to the results page for any state, then click on a game and select "Game Information"."

                           

                          Todd, you made a mistake on 'Lot o play' information.  The game is 5/100 not 5/99

                          00 counts as part of it so there are 100 possible numbers to pick from not 99.

                            The 11/19 payout hit another record low for a Saturday. What kind of jackpot are they waiting for?

                              The bleeding continues. The payout for the Thanksgiving eve drawing was less than $220,000.
