Play it Again

What is “Play it Again”?

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, Powerball/Power Play, and Ohio 50/50. 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.

Why was the “Play it Again” feature added?

“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.

How does it work for Ohio 50/50?

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, though not the same numbers. The terminal will show a confirmation screen before printing the wager so the customer can verify the cost of the new wager.

What does it cost?

There is no additional charge for “Play it Again”. The customer pays only the cost of the duplicated ticket.

How does “Play it Again” work for the Bundle Play package?

The “Play it Again” feature will work only with the specific game ticket scanned by the retailer.

How does “Play It Again” work on Bundle Play tickets?

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.

If the ticket has the “Play it Again” barcode, can it be read regardless if it’s a winning, non-winning or expired ticket?

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.

Can I use “Play it Again” on the self-service terminals?

Yes.  Simply scan the PIA barcode to duplicate all wager information to produce your new wager.
