Game Information

In addition to Powerball and Mega Millions, residents of Ohio and surrounding states can play a number of fun home-grown games:

Classic Lotto & Kicker

Classic Lotto is a draw game that offers big jackpots every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday evening at 7:05 PM. The top prize starts at $1 million and can roll over by at least $100,000 per drawing until a player matches all six numbers drawn. Tickets cost just $1 and players select six numbers from 1 to 49 or use an Auto Pick to create a random entry. Jackpot winners can opt for 30 annual payments or a lump-sum amount.

Here’s a breakdown of the prize tiers and odds of winning:

Match Prize Odds of Winning
6 of 6 Jackpot 1 in 13,983,816
5 of 6 $1,500 1 in 54,201
4 of 6 $70 1 in 1,032
3 of 6 $2 1 in 57
Overall odds of winning any Classic Lotto prize are 1 in 54

Kicker is played alongside Classic Lotto for an additional cost of just $1 and gives players the chance to win up to $100,000. A six-digit number is generated on the night of the draw and players must match it in exact order to win the top prize. Here’s how it works, using the numbers “123456” as an example:

Match Prize Odds of Winning
6 in Order (123456) $100,000 1 in 1,000,000
5 in Order (12345) $5,000 1 in 111,111

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.

Rules

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

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is PICK 5 ™ ? PICK 5 is a twice-daily Draw game where players select five numbers, each from 0 through 9 to win a top prize of $50,000 for a Straight play, up to $10,000 for a Box play, or up to $30,000 for a Straight/Box play, or up to $25,000 for a 1-OFF ® play. 2. How do you play PICK 5? Select five numbers each from 0 through 9, or mark the Quick Pick box to have the terminal randomly pick any or all of your numbers. Select the play type: Straight, Box, or Straight/Box, 1-OFF ® . Select the amount you want to play: 50 cents or $1 (all Straight/Box and 1-OFF plays are $1). Select the draw time: midday, evening, or both. To play the same numbers for more than one draw, simply tell the retailer how many advance draws you wish to play or select the number of draws in the Advance Play section of your playslip. 3. How much do PICK 5 tickets cost? Tickets cost 50 cents or $1 per play. 4. Where can I purchase PICK 5 tickets? You can purchase PICK 5 tickets at any authorized Florida Lottery retailer. 5. When are PICK 5 drawings held? The Florida Lottery will hold PICK 5 drawings twice daily at approximately 1:30 p.m. ET and 9:45 p.m. ET. Tickets for each drawing may be purchased up to 12 minutes prior to the applicable drawing – 1:18 p.m. ET for the midday drawings, and 9:33 p.m. ET for the evening drawings. 6. How much can I win playing PICK 5? You can win a top prize of $50,000 for a $1 Straight play, a $10,000 prize for a $1 Box play, and a $30,000 prize for a $1 Straight/Box play, and a $25,000 prize for a $1 1-OFF play. Fifty cent play prizes are 1/2 of the $1 play prizes. 7. What is 1-OFF? 1-OFF is a new PICK 5 play type that offers players the chance to miss their lucky numbers by 1 and still win a cash prize! With 242 additional number combinations, the play type gives players the chance to win up to $25,000 for a Straight win, or up to $500 for matching the winning PICK 5 numbers with one of their 242 possible 1-OFF number combinations. 8. How do you play 1-OFF? Playing PICK 5 1-OFF is easy. On the PICK 5 playslip, players should mark the 1-OFF box; select the draw time: midday, evening or both; and choose one number, from 0 through 9, from each column for a total of five digits, or mark the “QP” (Quick Pick) box to let the terminal randomly pick some or all of their numbers. 9. Do the old PICK 5 playslips still work? Yes. The old PICK 5 playslips still work on the terminal for players who are not playing 1-OFF; however, new playslips are necessary to play the new play type. 10. Are the 242 additional number combinations printed on the PICK 5 1-OFF ticket? No, the PICK 5 1-OFF ticket will print with the five-digit number selected by the player and the 1-OFF numbers higher or lower than your 5-digit number. 11. How do you win 1-OFF? If the player’s five-digit number is a Straight match to the winning PICK 5 numbers, meaning the player’s numbers match the winning numbers in exact order, the player wins $25,000. Or, if one of the player’s 242 1-OFF number combinations matches the PICK 5 winning numbers, the player can win $75 to $500, depending on the odds of being off by one, two, three, four, or five digits. 12. How much does 1-OFF cost to play? The 1-OFF play type costs $1 to play, but the cost of the ticket will vary depending on the number of draws played (midday, evening or both) and the number of days selected. 13. Do players get 242 more chances to win the top prize? No. Players get 242 more chances to win the 1-OFF prize – up to $500. 14. If you select a PICK 5 number with like digits (e.g., 7-7-7-7-7 or 1-1-1-2-2) will there be fewer possible 1-OFF combinations? No. Regardless of the PICK 5 numbers selected, there are always 242 possible 1-OFF combinations. Unlike Box or Combo, when you play 1-OFF a PICK 5 number with like digits does not change the odds of winning or the prize amount. 15. Can you play 1-OFF with any PICK 5 play type? No. 1-OFF is not an add-on feature; it is a play type that plays similar to Straight/Box. 16. Does 1-OFF play like EZmatch ™ , do you match the 1-OFF numbers with your PICK 5 number to win instantly? No. 1-OFF is not an instant win. Players win a 1-OFF prize by matching one of their 242 number combinations with the winning PICK 5 numbers drawn for the applicable drawing. The 1-OFF numbers are all the 242 possible winning number combinations that are off by one, from any or all of the player’s number; therefore, the 1-OFF numbers and the player’s numbers will never match. 17. Why should I play 1-OFF if I can only win half the prize of a Straight play? With Straight play, players get one shot at winning $50,000 for a $1 play. With 1-OFF, they get a chance to win $25,000 and 242 more chances to win up to $500. The odds of winning 1-OFF are the best of any PICK 5 play type available! Players may continue to play Straight for a chance to win $50,000; but, for the same cost, 1-OFF offers players an additional 242 set of numbers increasing the players’ chances to win a cash prize. 18. Can I play the same play styles, as I always have for PICK 5? Yes. Players may continue to play all of their favorite play styles – Straight, Box, Straight/Box, and, now, 1-OFF for both the midday and evening draws. 19. What are the odds of winning PICK 5? The odds of winning PICK 5 vary depending on which play type is selected. See chart below:

Unlike the Lottery’s other Draw games, which are pari-mutuel in design (that is, players are vying for a portion of what is in the prize pool), PICK 2, PICK 3, PICK 4, and PICK 5 offer set prize payouts. Therefore, the Lottery has established a $5 million liability limit for PICK 5 for any particular five-digit number in each drawing. Should any five digit combination (for example 77777) be purchased often enough in a single drawing that would result in the liability limit being exceeded, the Lottery will “cut off” further sales of that specific number combination. Players that have already played those numbers will still win the full amount of the set prize even if the liability limit has been met. For more details on this issue, please refer to the Pick 5 game rule subsection (1)(i).
