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.
“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.
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.
There is no additional charge for “Play it Again”. The customer pays only the cost of the duplicated ticket.
“Play it Again” will duplicate the bet type, while offering players a choice of changing the following items:
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.
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.
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.

You can play Pick 5 anytime!
Pick 5 is drawn twice daily at 12:29 p.m. and 7:29 p.m., except on Saturday evenings when the drawing is held during the Cash Explosion Game Show.
You can play straight, boxed, pair, or back-up.
In order to win, your five numbers must match the five numbers drawn in the exact order. Only one combination wins on a straight wager.
Pick 5 boxed bet consists of five numbers. In order to win, your numbers can be in any order or combination. There are six types of boxed wagers possible.
Pairs betting means you are wagering that the first two, three, or four numbers or that the last two, three, or four numbers selected, in the exact order, match to the numbers drawn by the Lottery. There are six types of Front / Back wagers possible.
The back-up bet combines both a STRAIGHT bet and BOX bet on one ticket. Each wager must be placed in $1 increments. If your straight bet wins, you win both the straight amount and the boxed amount. If your numbers don’t match the straight, but match a combination of your numbers then you win only the boxed amount.
