The Ohio Lottery Top Prize Drawing

Top Prize Drawing

What is TPD?

TPD stands for Top Prize Drawing. It is an added feature that is available on $5, $10 and $20 games.

Why

We developed the TPD concept so players have a chance of winning a top prize, even when most of the game tickets have been sold. TPD extends the opportunity for players to win a top prize throughout the life of the game.

How

Tickets bearing the winning “TPD” combination as described on the game instructions and rules automatically qualify for the “TPD” drawing once the ticket has been properly claimed.

In addition to being entered into the Top Prize Drawing, all newer Instant games with TPD prizes now pay $5,500, regardless of the price of the ticket. Any prize over $5,000 must be claimed at a Regional Lottery office.

Please note that older games with TPD prizes still pay between $1,000 and $2,500. See the Prizes Remaining page to review which games pay these smaller amounts.

The odds of winning the “Top Prize” are based on the number of valid “TPD” tickets claimed by the validation end date of the game.

The Ohio Lottery will send you written notification regarding the actual Top Prize Drawing date and random drawing format once that date has been established.

When

The Top Prize Drawing takes place at the end of a game's validation period or when all TPD winning tickets have been claimed - whatever comes first.

The Top Prize Drawing will be held no earlier than 180 days from the announced close date of the game.
