If this game ends the way SLP did, I definitely will play its last game.  SLP paid $38 for a match3 on its last drawing, before that a match3 was worth a free QP.

    The Wednesday (12/28) payout again was a record low at just over 170k. Saturday's rollover is only 200k.

      I think people are not really interested in Ohio Lot 'O Play. Sales are slumping since Ohio Super Lotto Plus went away. I wished Ohio got back SLP.

        The New Year's Eve payout was 234k, marking the third straight Saturday in which players won more than the previous Saturday. The rollover for Wednesday 1/4 is a surprising 400k.

          The first drawing of 2006 (Wednesday 1/4) had a higher payout than the previous Wednesday. But don't expect this game to see 2007.

            I agree with you CASH Only on this one. The sooner Ohio Lot 'O Play goes, the better according to me.

              Although I like the idea of a pick 5 game paying out millon dollar jackpots, it does srprise me that nobody has won this one yet.

              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.

                As Lot'O Play jackpot gets bigger, it will attract enough players to cover most of the combinations and it will likely be won.  Since there are 71,423,144 possible combinations and 12 of them are on each $2 ticket, with a $9M jackpot it getting closer to the point where the casual player will start buying tickets and that will help.

                  That's what I was thinking yesterday. But look what happened. I picked the top lines,
                  and they gave me the rest. 125 different numbers generated and I did not get even "one".

                    You can have all 5 numbers and not win anything, with none of the numbers at all, you don't stand any chance at all.  If you want to guarantee that you will have all 5 numbers somewhere on your tickets, you'll have to buy 20 tickets ($40)and make sure all one hundred numbers are in the line that you can pick.

                    I don't play the game now, but I plan to when the jackpot gets to $20M or when it ends if it has special payouts as SLP did with its last game.

                      The first Saturday drawing of the new year had a lower payout than the previous Saturday. Expect this game to get canned soon after its first jackpot winner.

                        I don't get this Ohio Lot 'O Play miracle. I can get all 5 numbers, but get nothing. Does this mean that I have to win a jackpot, I have to get all 5 numbers in a row across or down?

                          Yes, Just6ntlc the winning numbers must be a roll across, down or diagonally (12 ways to win).  Being in the positions as below won't even match 2.  A match 1 pays nothing.

                          X 1 X X X
                          X X 2 X X
                          X X X 3 X
                          X X X X 4
                          5 X X X X

                          Ohiopick3 didn't even match the normal odds of matching 1 of 1:5

                            ohiopick3,

                            Was there a reason you chose to put the numbers 23-53-61-67 on the top row of all your tickets?  I think I might have chosen to put totally different numbers on each ticket hoping for more variety.

                              RJOh:

                              The only reason that I played the same four sets on each ticket is because of the
                              generated numbers that they give you also. I just picked four numbers that have not
                              hit in this game at that time. I figured that every two or three drawings the numbers drawn
                              had a low number. So I just randomly picked a different low number that had not hit at that
                              time as well. I figured, let the chips fall where they may with the generated numbers.
                              If I were lucky enough to have my four main numbers drawn then I would at least
                              get $5,000. I don't play the game that often, but $10 now and then wouldn't hurt either.
