Hello Ohio Lottery players, my name is Michaele and I work at the Lottery. 

As you know, we recently upgraded our Web site to allow foran expanded and interactive customer and retailer experience. In the last week,we learned that we have a very passionate customer base and heard from many ofour customers about what they liked and didn’t like about the change. We have heard the concerns and are implementing manyof the suggestions made by players.

We have added back the functionality such as last 20 draws per page, the instant ticket odds and the 2011 Redball results (in the archives). We will be adding midday and evening drawingsto Pick 3 and Pick 4 as well as payouts and retail selling locations for winners. In the coming weeks the site will be enabled for mobile use. Our goal is to add to our players Web site experience and hope you will find the upgrades useful and fun. New additions such as Find aretailer and Bank locator, Just For Fun Games and the randomizer are popular. 

We greatly appreciate your feedback and we are listening, soif you have questions or comments, send them to us. You can find a link toe-mail us on the Web site.

      Thanks, I noticed some of the improvements when I checked tonight Classic Lotto results.  The cash value amounts of the jackpots and links to the previous winning numbers will be make my visits more informative.

          Hi RJOh,

          The cash option values can be found by clicking on the Claiming tab and than clicking on the Cash Option Value tab in the left hand navigation bar (the Classic Lotto calculator can be found here as well).  The odds for online games can be found under the specific page for that game, each game has an odds & payouts tab.

                  Well, the new site does have a new look, which is kind of nice.  But I agree... I think it's terrible. 

                  I emailed them about trying to find PAST history of numbers, a LIST of past results.  They responded with, "you have to enter the date for the draw you want to see."  I made it very clear that I was looking for a  "LIST of PAST results, like on the old site."  They responded with, "oh, the new site doesn't have that... but some time soon new features will be added." 

                  What's the point of creating a new website and going live with it when it doesn't have all of the basic features???

                  With the old site you could get ANYWHERE with just 1 or 2 clicks.  Whoever designed the new site... terrible! 

                  It reminds me of certain aspects of my job... they change things to try to make it better, and all they do is screw up a perfectly good system!

                  Keep it simple

                        Hello Ohio Lottery players, my name is Michaele and I work at the Lottery. 

                        As you know, we recently upgraded our Web site to allow foran expanded and interactive customer and retailer experience. In the last week,we learned that we have a very passionate customer base and heard from many ofour customers about what they liked and didn’t like about the change.

Our goal is to add to our players Web site experience and hope you will find the upgrades useful and fun. New additions such as Find aretailer and Bank locator, Just For Fun Games and the randomizer are popular. 

                        We greatly appreciate your feedback and we are listening, soif you have questions or comments, send them to us. You can find a link toe-mail us on the Web site.

                        Michaele, thanks for responding to the players here, I know they greatly appreciate it.

                        Also, it's good to see the Ohio Lottery being so responsive in general.  I know that many are not happy with the site change, but hopefully they also see the fact that your team is responding quickly to their complaints.

                        When I radically changed Lottery Post years ago I received some of the worst, vicious complaints imaginable.  My very first e-mail within minutes was just the words: "HATE IT, HATE IT!"

                        I printed the e-mail and taped it to my wall.  It was my method of building a thick skin -- and I would continue to look back on that e-mail weeks and even months later to see that the initial terrible reaction would come to be replaced by praise of what I knew in my heart at the time was a good design and good decision.

                        So please do keep responding quickly to customer complaints -- but also keep a thick skin, knowing that you're trying to do the right thing.
