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, PICK 5, Rolling Cash 5, Classic Lotto/KICKER, KENO BOOSTER, Mega Millions/ MEGAPLIER, and Powerball/Power Play. 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.

What about KICKER?

The “Play it Again” feature will generate a KICKER—YES or KICKER—NO on the new Classic Lotto wager based on the play information from the old ticket. If KICKER was played however, a new six-digit KICKER number will appear on the new ticket.

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

The “Play it Again” feature will work only with the specific game ticket scanned by the retailer.

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.

Can I use “Play it Again” on the self-service terminals?

Yes.  Simply scan the PIA barcode to duplicate all wager information, including a new KICKER number to produce your new wager.

 

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.

What is KICKER?

KICKER is an optional game featuring a six-digit number drawn with each Classic Lotto drawing.  KICKER is available for an extra $1 on all Classic Lotto tickets.  Saying ‘YES’ to KICKER gives players the opportunity to win up to an additional $100,000!  KICKER can only be played on Classic Lotto wagers.  The KICKER number will appear on all Classic Lotto tickets.

How often are Classic Lotto drawings held?

Classic Lotto drawings are held on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday evenings at approximately 7:05 pm.

Where can I find the winning numbers for the Classic Lotto & KICKER?

Drawing videos of the Classic Lotto & KICKER drawings can be viewed at www.ohiolottery.com after 8 p.m. following the drawings.  Winning numbers will also be posted to the Ohio Lottery’s Web site under Classic Lotto.

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.

How do I claim my prize?

  • You need the original winning ticket to claim your prize.
  • Powerball tickets purchased in Ohio can only be cashed in Ohio.
  • When you win the jackpot, you will be able to select either 30 annual payments or the Cash Option.
  • Up to $599 – Present your ticket to any Ohio Lottery Retailer for validation and immediate prize payment.
  • $600 to $5,000 – Present your ticket to any Ohio Lottery Retailer for validation and receive a Pay-to-Bearer receipt and a Claim Form for check processing OR present the Pay-to-Bearer receipt and completed claim form to an authorized bank cashing location and receive payment the same day.
  • Over $5,000 – Present your ticket to an Ohio Lottery office for validation and check processing.
  • You must validate and cash your winning ticket within 180 days of the drawing date.
