I looked at the Ohio Lottery website FAQ about Lot O Play

http://www.ohiolottery.com/games/lotoplay/lotolay_qa.html

 

"We also lowered the odds to win the jackpot by more than half. They were 1 in 14 million in Super Lotto Plus, and are now 1 in 6.3 million with Lot 'O Play. "

 

But shouldn't it say....

"We also increased the odds to win the jackpot by more than half. They were 1 in 14 million in Super Lotto Plus, and are now 1 in 6.3 million with Lot 'O Play. "  After all 1/6,300,000 is greater than 1/14,000,000.

Smart lottery winners form trust to claim their winnings.  They send an attorney to the lottery headquarters to claim the prize in trust, so that ONLY the name of the trust is revealed.  And they tell NO ONE, especially relatives.

If you ever win a lottery and you are single, the only person you should ever marry is someone who was truly in love with you BEFORE you won the jackpot!

    But on a per-dollar basis, the odds of winning a jackpot are only slightly better, as LoP is a $2 game.

      It's a $2 GAME ?!?!?!?!  Oh my God!!!  Are you for real?  So you're telling me that A Powerball ticket for a larger jackpot is cheaper than Lot O'Play, a game that looks like it's terrible.  I'm from Nebraska so I don't play Ohio lottery games but just reading about this game tells me that Lot O Play is horrendous.

        I know that LoP is a bingo-style can-win-only-once-on-a-ticket game, so I would not be p***ed off like so many players appear to have been. The one thing that bothers me about LoP (the game it replaced, Super Lotto Plus, had the same rule) is that the cash option is exactly 50% of the annuity, instead of a floating percentage like MM and PB.
