I agree. I think Ohio should have kept SLP. I'm not happy if LOP is computerized.

    Why does it seem like I'm the only person outraged that NY Rotto has only a 38%-40% payout?

    Could it be that most LP members don't live in NY or play its games?  You're preaching to the wrong choir.

    Just6ntlc,

    LOP uses a balls machine to pick its numbers.  I doubt if LOP will be replaced any time soon because it fits right in between Rolling Cash5 and MegaMillions.  If it is replaced the new game would have a $1M to $4M jackpot and probably wouldn't pay any better.

      The Saturday 4/23 payout was the lowest yet for a Saturday during the LOP weekends promotion. Only one Saturday left before the end of what could be Ohio's last attempt to salvage the game.

        CASH Only,

        You're looking at state lotteries as a way to create personal wealth while states see them as a way to create wealth for the state.  If LOP bring in more money for Ohio than the SLP game it replaced then it will be around for a while, if not it will be replaced.

          I think LOP is gaining wealth and revenue. However, if it's not saved, I would want to see Ohio Super Lotto Plus back. However, they follow the California way and add the bonus ball to win.

            I don't see how LOP is making more money for the state than SLP did. LOP needs players, but it's continuing to lose them.

              Judt6ntlc,

              Ohio Super Lotto Plus did have a bonus ball, that's reason the "Plus" was added to its name.  The problem was it was losing money using the same rules it had when it was a more popular game like starting jackpots of $4M and minimum rolls of $1M which had been $4M at one time.  I look for a similar game with some rules changes to replace LOP, but not real soon.

               

              CASH Only,

              True SLP had more players than LOP, but it payed a higher percent of its sales out.  If a game like SLP comes back, it will have smaller jackpots and rollovers.

                LOP is a better game than GA-KY-VA Lose for Life _and_ PA Unlucky for Life, but sadly I think LOP will be gone first. Very soon there will be LOP drawings with statewide payouts under $100,000.
