Play it Again

What is “Play it Again”?

The “Play it Again” feature is part of most Ohio Lottery on-line games, including Pick 3, Pick 4, Rolling Cash 5, Classic Lotto, Ten-OH!, KENO and Mega Millions/ MEGAPLIER. A second barcode, printed on each ticket above the game logo, permits a retailer to scan the ticket with the 2D reader and duplicate the exact wager information for the next scheduled drawing.

Why was the “Play it Again” feature added?

“Play it Again” was added as a convenience for players because it eliminates the need for a new bet card. The feature also allows retailers to reproduce a customer's wager by eliminating the need to manually enter the numbers.

How does it work?

Once the added bar code at the top of a ticket is scanned by the 2D reader the terminal will print out the exact wager showing on that ticket. The terminal will show a confirmation screen before printing the wager so the customer can verify the cost of the new wager.

What does it cost?

There is no additional charge for “Play it Again”. The customer pays only the cost of the duplicated ticket.

How are Mega Millions and MEGAPLIER wagers affected?

A Mega Millions ticket generated by the "Play it Again" barcode will include the same numbers played for each board, the draw duration, and the total wager amount.

What about Pick 3 and Pick 4 tickets?

“Play it Again” will duplicate the bet type, while offering players a choice of changing the following items:

  • Midday or evening draws
  • The number of draws
  • The days of the week

How does “Play it Again” work for the Bundle Play package?

The “Play it Again” feature will work only with the specific game ticket presented to a retailer.  It will function just like it does for most online game tickets.  A second barcode, printed on each ticket above the game logo, permits a retailer to scan the ticket with the 2D reader and duplicate the exact wager information for the next scheduled drawing.

How does “Play It Again” work on Bundle Play tickets?

Once the added bar code at the top of any Bundle Play ticket is scanned by the 2D reader the terminal will print out the exact wager showing on that ticket.  Using “Play It Again” on a Bundle Play ticket will only reproduce that game wager.  The entire Bundle Play package will not be duplicated.

If the ticket has the “Play it Again” barcode, can it be read regardless if it’s a winning, non-winning or expired ticket?

Yes. The “Play it Again” barcode located at the top of the ticket will read just like a bet card and duplicate the wager regardless of the status of the ticket.

Question & Answer

What is Classic Lotto?

Classic Lotto is a traditional lotto-style game featuring a 6/49 matrix. To win the jackpot, players must match the six numbers drawn by the Ohio Lottery. Each wager is $1.

How often are Classic Lotto drawings held?

Classic Lotto drawings are held on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday evenings. Monday and Wednesday drawings are held at 7:29pm. Saturday drawings will occur during the Cash Explosion® Double Play television show. Beginning July 1, 2011, all Classic Lotto draws will be conducted at 7:10 PM, with pools closing at 7 PM.

What is the starting jackpot for Classic Lotto?

The jackpot begins at $1 million, and will increase a minimum of $100,000 each time there is no jackpot winner. Jackpot increases are based upon sales.

Can Classic Lotto players make their payment selection at the time they claim their prize?

The Classic Lotto™ jackpot prize award is a 30 year annuity prize, although winners may choose the Cash Option at the time of claiming the winning Classic Lotto™ jackpot prize award.

The Cash Option is valued at fifty percent (50%) of the advertised jackpot prize amount. For example, if the jackpot is $2.5M, the cash option value will be $1.25M. To elect the Cash Option or maintain the annuity prize, the claimant must complete the Cash Option Election Form. The claimant of the jackpot ticket has sixty (60) days from presentment and claiming of the winning ticket to opt for the Cash Option (via the Election Form choosing the cash option). Once the Cash Option is chosen, the claimant cannot convert the prize award back to a 30 year annuity.

What happens if there is more than one 6 of 6 winning ticket sold in a single drawing?

The jackpot is divided equally among the number of 6 of 6 winning tickets.
