Address – At time of registration a user will be prompted to enter their full address [Mailing Address] [Address Continued] [City] [State] [Zip] [Country].

Additionally the system will employ an IP filtering feature that will check to see if the user’s IP address is coming from within the state of Ohio.
Access - Ohio residents will have full functionality and unlimited access to the program. Non-Ohio residents will only have limited access to entering non-winning tickets, participating in second chance promotions, and being awarded participation points, which includes having access to the catalog to redeem points.
