The payout for last night (Saturday 12/3) actually was HIGHER than the previous Saturday. The fact that Thanksgiving was last week probably is the reason.

        Reember that if ticket sales and prize payouts are low, then it is likely that nobody wll hit the jackpot, causing it to roll over.  The higher the jackpot, the more likely players are to purchase 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.

          Normally that is true. But it looks like sales for LoP have dipped tremendously since it began less than two months ago, even though the jackpot has yet to be hit.

            I wonder how many players hate the "one prie per play" feature.

              It would seem to me that many players don't like it; it's possible to have several "winning" lines in one play, or three numbers in each of two (intersecting) lines.

                I played several tickets when the game first started because I matched 3 several times when Ohio SLP had its last game which paid $38 for each match 3.  I probably will never play Lot'O Play again unless the jackpot gets to over $15,000,000.00.  If the game is around for another four months that will probably happen.

                  Yeah, the previous drawing would be for $14.9 million. I don't think LoP will make it to April, especially with the holidays coming up, and if there's even ONE jackpot winner.

                    The Wednesday 12/7 drawing paid out BARELY over $200,000. It was a slight decrease, but lower nonetheless, from the previous Wednesday.

                      Last night's payout surprisingly was higher than each of the past two Wednesdays. The slowly rising jackpot (increased by just 200k for Saturday) may finally be noticed.

                        The latest Saturday draw had a slightly better payout than the previous Saturday. Look for the amounts to be paid to winners drop below $200,000 around the holidays.

                          I hope Ohio Lot O' Play continues to roll and total winnings fall.

                            The Wednesday 12/21 draw paid out less than $200,000 for the first time. I wonder if any players voiced their displeasure over this game at Monday's public meeting.

                              For the second straight Saturday, the payout was higher than the previous Saturday. Has any jackpot game ever been ended before there was a winner?
