The Ohio Lottery is launching a new game called "Ten-Oh", starting August 5th.

The game has a COMPUTERIZED DRAWING.

NO TELEVISED DRAWINGS.

      "Ten-Oh" twice a day computerized keno, they gotta be kidding.  All ya gotta do is match half of the draw numbers, what could be easier. That means they have half a day to examine the numbers that were wagered and then decide how much they want to pay out, what could be easier.

        Glad to hear that you've written them.  Hopefully everyone else will do the same ... even if you don't live in Ohio.  The reason is that computerized drawings may be coming to YOUR state soon.  These lottery directors may think twice when they see a game get shot down quickly by players because of the junky computerized drawings.

        This is one thing where you don't want to be sitting on the sidelines.  If you see your state suddenly broadcasting a cartoon fake drawing instead of a real lottery ball drawing, you will have been too late.

          One thing I'm curious about is do the lotteries listen if enough people complain? Or do they just do it anyway? Has a state ever NOT become computerized because of people starting an uproar?

            The only time the Ohio Lottery listens to its players is when they see their profits slipping. Last year they dropped Lot' O Play because "the players wanted Classic Lotto back" but nobody knows who those players were because the real players wanted Super Lotto back.

            The Ohio Lottery had a TV game show called Cash Explosion Double Play and changed to Make Me Famous, Make Me Rich. But after they noticed the profits fell, they said "the players wanted Cash Explosion back".

            Somebody must have really wanted this new game Ten-Oh and even the lottery clerks are scratching their heads because the drawings will not be televised. The only similarity I see to Keno is they will draw 20 numbers out of 80 but the only option the players have is playing a 10-spot. In a way I can understand why the live drawn won't be shown, especially when they have only 30 seconds to draw 3 or 4 other games. However they could draw the numbers before the live draw and show the results on the bottom of the screen.

            If the players don't complain about the draw being computerized, the lottery will say "the players want all the games drawn like that" and probably dropped the live drawings too. The Ohio Lottery hasn't been lottery savvy in years so unless things change, it's very possible all the games will use an RNG in the near future.

                O.K. Let's not get too alarmed about Ohio. You have to understand that drawing 20 balls twice a day, every day, is a pretty time-consuming proposition. That, and the fact they have a RNG only being used twice or so per year, are probably the only reasons why Ten-OH! is computerized. I'd be surprised if Ohio converted every drawing to this. PA has been drawing the midday drawings with a computer for a while, and the balls still bounce every night at 7PM, and will continue to in the forseeable future. The same, I can only hope, will hold true for Ohio. Ohio is the most player-responsive lottery in America, and while that may not be saying much, I think for that reason they realize more than most lotteries that we like our balls.

                  i could've dealt with a compromise in tennessee.they could've followed pennsylvania's example and computerized midday and did ball draws at night.i do think ohio will be safe from the computerized draws though.

                    There are some people that will naturally take a blasé approach to this, like it's no big deal.  Maybe you don't realize that lottery directors would much rather just conduct computerized drawings all day, because it's much easier.  If they don't meet resistance at each stage, they will continue converting games.  It's just a matter of when.

                    Don't you know?  That's how these states converted all through the West.  Their residents didn't put up a big stink about it, and now they have 100% fake drawings.

                    I want to laugh when I hear "It can't happen to OUR state!"  Yes, it can, and it probably will unless the players in that state do something about it.

                      My question still feels like it hasn't been answered or did I miss something? Todd, you said "unless the players in that state do something about it".  Has a state NOT gone computerized because people complained? Does anyone know? Thanks.

                        Hi Everyone,

                                      The only way that Ohio can fight this as we have in the pass when , We don't like something is .... WE DON'T BUY IT !! so if you don't like it call and write , but don't buy the ticket. not even once. that tells them faster than anything it's not flying. See Ya!

                        We have mulliplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, Love too seldom, and hate too Often.

                            i could've dealt with a compromise in tennessee.they could've followed pennsylvania's example and computerized midday and did ball draws at night.i do think ohio will be safe from the computerized draws though.

                            Ohio has shown the live evening drawing for almost 30 years, it's become a tradition, and the type of draw (Ping Pong balls) is part of that tradition so I doubt that will change. The Mega Millions draw is only shown when the jackpot is high but the numbers begin scrolling across the bottom of the screen seconds after the draw. I'm assuming that's what they will do with the new Ten-Oh game.

                            The Midday Pick-3 and Pick-4 drawings and the Kicker, which is an option with the Mega Millions tickets, are never shown live. From the Lottery's and the players' point of view, if you never see the drawing, does the type of draw make a difference?

                            I believe Ten-Oh is not the first time the Ohio Lottery has used a RNG. Many years ago they had a game called Cards and I believe that was computer draw.

                            "i do think ohio will be safe from the computerized draws though."

                            Computerized draws are not good for TV and players know that at given time of day the lottery can access the computer and find out which numbers have the most and/or the least amount of money wagered on them. If even just by coinsidence the payoffs were lower after going to a RNG,  players might lose confidence in the integrity of the games and stop playing.
