Yesterday, Ohio held it's first drawings for the new Ten-OH game (Midday and Evening).  So, of course, Lottery Post has all the results on the Ohio Results page.

The sad part?

Ohio has now dropped from an A+ to a B on the State Lottery Report Card, thanks to the computerized drawings used for Ten-OH.

    I'm sad Todd that the Ten-Oh game is computerized. That's a great topic you started Todd.

      You're right indeed, Todd.  The Ohio Lottery website doesn't give payouts for the Ten-Oh game drawings.  I'm interested in seeing the results.

        Today's Midday Ten-OH draw paid out $21,000 and the Pick-3 and Pick4 paid out $156,795 and $102,500.  It is a shame when a throw in game drops the overall state rating.

        Ten-OH will never be a "give me 20 QPs" type of a game but might gain a small following from people that like to play personal numbers for a buck or those that buy a scratch-off using the change from another purchase.

        As promised, they did scroll the numbers across the bottom of the TV screen but it was so fast, I don't know how anybody could copy them down. I hope the lottery commission told their agents to expect players to hand them large stacks of losing tickets to check for winners.

            Also, the website new design doesn't show if the RC5 jackpot rolled.  I sent them an e-mail about that because it's one the games that I play.

              Here's my question. Why does Tennessee still have an A+?

                Wow...those are some P3 and P4 payouts.  Wisconsin is usually about a tenth of that.  Ohio must have a lot higher population than us.  Either that, or something else is going on.

                  At lease I got a quick reply to my letter:

                  Thank you for visiting the Ohio Lottery Web Site. 

                  We will have that information on our website by the end of the week.  The current jackpot is $130,000.00

                    Um...  that would be because I forgot to update the info in Tennessee.
