The payout for Wednesday 1/11 was slightly below the previous Wednesday. OH probably is waiting for its first (and only?) jackpot winner before retiring it.

    I wonder why Ohio Lot 'O Play keeps rolling and rolling. Do you think that Ohio Lot 'O Play is going to have one jackpot winner before retiring. I hope so CASH Only.

      I expect OH to announce soon after its first LOP winner that the game will be discontinued. There may be payouts in the five-digit range once the top prize is hit.

        CASH Only, so what happens if there is a Ohio LOP winner, will Ohio go back to Ohio SLP or go to another game? If another game, which one?

          I was just looking at the last 28 draws for lot-o-play and super lotto.

          Lot-o play last 28 draws started out at $1,000,000   on 10/12 and last jackpot 1/14 is $9,300,000. At $2.00 per play.

          And super lotto jack pot was hit 3 times in 28 draws. With a higher jackpot payout. Looks like the ohio lottery doesnt have to pay out as many of jackpot with lot-o-play. But i wonder how much there sales have gone down to?

            I think sales have fallen because of Mega Millions keep winning jackpots.

              I will never understand the lotteries position to pay out $1 and $2 prizes.  This totally dilutes the upper level prizes.  Take the Illinois Little Lotto. I dont want a dollar back if I get 2 numbers.  I would rather have bigger prizes for having 3 numbers and 4 numbers. For 4 numbers to pay only 100 bucks at over 3000 to 1 odds is a joke. Same with Lot o Play. Why pay back the two bucks.  When you win the lottery it should be a hard challenge, and in return the payouts should be decent. These games that pay back a buck or two on a 10 to one shot, WHAT IS THE POINT.  Increase the third and second level prizes!!!

                The most recent Saturday LOP had the lowest payout ever for a Saturday. And the payout for the Wednesday 1/18 drawing was the lowest yet in the history of the game.

                  Just curious, what do you have against Lot 'O Play? It has a cash option.

                    MATCH

                    WIN

                    ODDS

                    Without the $2 prize the chart might look like this

                    MATCH

                    WIN

                    ODDS

                    Which one looks most attractive?

                      Mega Millions and LOP each pay the annuity in 26 equal annual installments. However the LOP cash option is fixed at 50% of the annuity, while MM has a _higher_ floating percentage, which means a LOP cash option winner (if there ever will be one) will get stiffed.

                        Obviously Ohio had a different annuity plan and rules than the MegaMillions lottery organization, if you feel you will get stiffed if you play and win then you should not play.

                          RJOh, I like the first version where the odds are 1 in 5 instead of 1 in 150 in Ohio Lot 'O Play. What happen to total winnings in 1/21?

                            The latest Saturday (1/28) LoP had the worst payout yet for a Saturday. Players won less than 200k.

                              And someone hit it.

                              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.
