Ohio LOP's days are numbered, and the lottery has another survey. Would you rather see a 6/47 game at $2 per play, or a 6/49 at a dollar per game?

    a 6/49 dollar play is a much better deal than the 6/49 two dollar play......

        It would have been interesting if Ohio surveyed about a "lifetime" prize game. I would think Ohio would give its winners a cash option, which of course is not found in the KY and PA games.

        LOP will barely make it to one year (October).

          CASH Only, my vote is 6/49 at $1 per game. However, the starting jackpot will be cash option only at $1 million in Ohio. It will continue to roll cash value only until someone wins.

            Given that Ohio stiffs cash option winners of their in-state game, it would be better if the replacement for LOP is all-cash, like Rolling Cash 5.

              Replacing LOP with a game similar to RC5 makes as much sense as replacing it with a Pick3/4 game, they already have these games.  To be the states flag ship game, the game will have to be its richest game with a starting jackpot of $1M or more which means an annuity jackpot prize, odds of 1:10M or higher and a price of $1-$2 per play.  I expect it to be replaced with a new and improved version of the 6/49(SuperLotto) or a similar game.

                It looks like Ohio will be going back to a "classic" lotto game. I'd rather see Ohio try a "cash only" game that plays differently than RC5.

                  "I'd rather see Ohio try a "cash only" game that plays differently than RC5."

                  CASH Only,

                  As a resident of New York, have you express your preferences to the Ohio Lottery commissions?
