  • You can wager $1, $2, $3, $4, $5, $10 & $20.
  • Choose from 1 to 10 numbers (called the "spot") out of a pool of 80 numbers. You may use a bet card or the Auto Pick feature.

  • Prizes must be claimed within 180 days of the drawing date.
  • For more information, call 1-800-686-4208.

Spot Explanation

  • The Spot in KENO represents the amount of numbers selected by a player in a single KENO wager. For instance, if someone chooses a 6 Spot, that person has chosen 6 numbers to play. The Spot establishes the prize structure for that game and is used to determine whether that player has a winning ticket for that drawing. Odds and payouts increase as the Spot increases. In the Ohio Lottery’s KENO game, the $100,000 top prize can only be won playing a 10 Spot Game.

What is "Play it Again”?

The “Play it Again” feature is available on most Ohio Lottery on-line games, including KENO and Booster®. A second barcode, printed on each ticket above the game logo, is a convenience for players because it eliminates the need for a new bet card. Instead, it allows a retailer to scan the ticket with the 2D reader and duplicate the exact KENO and Booster® wager information for the next scheduled drawing without manually entering the numbers. If a ticket has a “Play it Again” barcode, it can be used regardless if it is a winning, non-winning or expired ticket.


Winning numbers can be viewed live at KENO monitor locations, or on the website within 2 minutes after the drawing.
