About Ohio Classic Lotto

Ohio Classic Lotto is one of the few American lotteries that hold drawings three times a week, on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. The pools close at 7 pm and the draws begin five minutes later. The jackpot starts at one million dollars and the lottery guarantees a 100,000-dollar minimum increase in prizes each time the jackpot is rolled over.

A ticket costs one dollar and players have to choose between entering their own numbers and letting the Auto Pick feature do the hard work. Either way, players are expected to pick six numbers out of a pool of 49 and they can use up to five Auto Picks for each bet card. For convenience purposes, players are provided with the alternative of wagering once for 10 draws and they can also place an additional bet of one dollar called the kicker. This is an optional game that players can use to enter an additional draw for a prize of $100,000.

Winning any prize in Ohio Classic Lotto comes with relatively good odds of one in 54. This sounds great, but keep in mind that most of the prizes are distributed among lower tier winners.

The odds of winning $70 are one in 1032 and for this to happen, players have to match four numbers out of the 49 drawn. Things become even more statistically challenging as you claw your way up the ladder with five numbers awarding a fixed sum of $1500. The odds of this happening are one in 54,201. Finally, players have one chance in 13,983,816 to win the jackpot.

Ohio Classic Lotto Rules

Players have to guess 6 numbers from a pool of 49, plus a Kicker number if the option is enabled.

Ohio Classic Lotto has a couple of convenient features. One of them is called “Play it Again.” It enables players to use the same numbers for two consecutive draws.

Play It Again tickets do the same for the Kicker number. One thing that players need to be aware of is that Play it Again will not work on a bundle of tickets as only the game wager will be reproduced. On the bright side, the same feature can be used at self-service terminals, which makes it practical and user-friendly.

The Odds of Winning Ohio Classic Lotto

The chances of winning the Ohio Classic Lotto jackpot are one in 13,983,816. The chances of winning the second prize are much better – one in 54,201. Four out of six numbers need to be matched for the third prize and three out of six needs to be matched for the fourth lottery prize to be awarded. The overall odds of winning any prize are 1 in 54.

Divisions Numbers Matched Winning Odds
1 Prize 6 1:13,983,816
2 Prize 5 1:54,201
3 Prize 4 1:1,032
4 Prize 3 1:57

Ohio Classic Lotto has a minimal guaranteed jackpot of one million dollars. It increases at 100,000-dollar increments with every next drawing. The jackpot will continue rolling over until somebody gets the correct numerical combination to become a winner.

Classic Lotto winners have an opportunity to win among lump sum and annuity payments. Getting a lump sum will produce an amount that’s approximately 50 percent of the advertised jackpot for the respective drawing. Alternatively, winners can get their money in 30 equal annual installments.

The largest jackpot ever won by an Ohio Classic Lotto player is 73.3 million dollars. The mega jackpot fell in June 2014. The name of the winner wasn’t disclosed, but the lucky ticket was purchased in Ashtabula County. Other impressive jackpots include 50.4 million dollars won in 2011 and 24.6 million dollars won in 2008. Most often, however, the jackpot is won when it reaches an amount of four to six million dollars.

All prizes should be claimed within 180 days of the drawing. People who win up to 599 dollars can claim the sum from any retailer. Winners that get 600 to 5,000 dollars have to fill out a claim form that will be presented in an authorized bank. Anyone that wins more than 5,000 dollars will have to visit the Ohio Lottery headquarters to make a claim.

History of the Ohio Lottery

Voters approved a constitutional amendment in May 1973 establishing the current Ohio Lottery, with ticket sales for the first game, called Buckeye 300, starting in August 1974. In 1983, profits from ticket sales began to be transferred to education. Ohio Lotto started that same year.

The Ohio Lottery joined Mega Millions in 2002 and Powerball in April 2010. More than $19 billion has been allocated to educational initiatives in the state since the Ohio Lottery began, providing valuable funds for K-12 and special education as well as vocational programs.


You must be at least 18 years old to play Ohio Lottery games.
