The Ohio Lottery Play Responsibly

Play Responsibly

The Ohio Lottery Commission wants you to enjoy playing Ohio Lottery games and to play them responsibly. No matter how successful you may be at playing games of skill, or games of chance, unless you manage your money well, you may still end up spending more than your budget.

You must manage your gaming expenditures to ensure both safety and enjoyment.

  • NEVER gamble with borrowed money.
  • Work out your weekly or monthly recreation spending budget and don't go over it.
  • Only spend what you can afford to lose when playing.

Borrowing money to play, spending above your budget or using money allocated for other purposes is not only unwise but can lead to more significant problems for yourself and your family.

We want you to enjoy playing Ohio Lottery games and have fun. Achieve this goal by setting limits for yourself in your gaming activities.
