The EZPLAY® Countdown Series Games are exciting new games that have been created as “neighborhood” games. The Ohio Lottery has identified only Retailers with a Multi-Play Station (MP) to offer these games. These Retailers have been assigned to a “Group.” Each group will have its own game pools, which will run independently of every other group. For example, if there are 3 games in each group and 100 groups, there will be 300 games running simultaneously. When someone in that group wins a top prize, we reset the game and the ticket quantities, and then we begin the count down again!
There are 3 EZPLAY® Countdown Series games. The games are $1 Gems which has a pool of 500 tickets, $2 Three of a Kind with a pool of 1,500 tickets, and $5 1-2-3 Cash with a pool of 2,500 tickets.
Retailers with an MP in a neighborhood or geographic proximity. Each group will have their own game pools, which will run independently of other groups.
Group information is available on the MP under the “EZPLAY® Countdown Series” button. The MP Retailers in each group are also available through the Ohio Lottery mobile app and at Countdown Groups.
Match the prize symbols shown on each ticket to win that prize.
If you have won an EZPLAY® Countdown Series top prize, a message will print on the bottom of your ticket that says, “CONGRATULATIONS, WINNER!” You can also use the ticket checker or mobile app to see if you have won a prize.
In MP retail locations, you can see the number of tickets remaining by game on the bottom of each of the EZPLAY® Countdown Series game tickets, on the Player Advertising Displays (PADs), on the top of the MPs and under the EZPLAY® game selection screen.
The easiest way to track the number of tickets remaining is with the official Ohio Lottery app, available for both iPhones and Android devices. Just click on “EZPLAY® Countdown Series” on the app’s home page and enter the group number or name of the location that you would like to track.
Ticket counts will be updated every 2 minutes.
