The last two drawings had the lowest payouts yet for their respective nights of the week. Wednesday's prize pool was less than $150,000.

    When will Ohio stop LOP? However, if this keeps up, Ohio players won't play this game.

      After popping in the Ohio website and looking over the How To Play Lot'O Play game, a few words come to my mind: deceptive, misleading, confusing, very little player number control, etc.

        The Wednesday 3/15 payout was another record low at 143k. Hopefully OH players are not crossing into KY to play Lose for Life.

          I'm disappointed that the payouts are hitting new lows for LOP CASH Only. On your quote CASH Only, you spelled rotto, not lotto and you need to fix it. I hope Ohio changes it game soon.

            I purposely wrote NY _R_otto..."R" as in ripoff. The prize pool is only 38%-40% of sales. 3/6 always pays $1.

              Lot'O Play is one of many games that are designed for the players who buy lottery tickets on a whim because they feel lucky.  For the system player or any other serious lottery players Ohio has pick3, pick4, Rolling Cash5 and MegaMillions, so Ohioans don't have to go out of state to lose their monies.

                I agree with you RJOh on the many games Ohio has to choose from. Payouts are really bad at LOP, but good at other spots.

                  Well a big reason why the payout was so low was because of the numbers.  I mean look at the dispersion between them.  They go from 6 to the other four numbers being in the 80+ range.  With tickets being mostly easy picks it wouldn't be a bad assumption to credit the fact to that.

                    Because the players can only select 5 of 25 numbers and 1 of 24 combinations on each ticket, Lot'O Play is fundamentally a 5/100 quick pick game only.  I don't play it because for me part of the fun of play lotteries is picking all my own numbers.

                      I agree RJOh. I don't play Quick Picks in any game I ever play except for PB, MM, and CA SLP.

                        LOP has again set a record for futility. The payout for Wednesday 3/22 was barely 130k.

                          More record lows for Saturday and Wednesday. Last night's payout was only 126k.

                            During the month of April, LOP players will get a free QP ticket for each ticket bought for the week end drawings.  This will increase the payouts amounts during this promotion.

                              I don't think it'll do much good. This game won't last the year.
