A Night at the Rodeo

Over the weekend, we saddled up and went to the rodeo! We spent Saturday in Youngstown for “The Toughest Sport on Dirt”.

Professional Bull Riders brought the “Velocity Tour” to the Covelli Centre over the weekend. 45 riders vied for the top spot at the Youngstown Invitational. Danilo Carlos Sobrinho won the Youngstown Invitational, earning 257.5 points. Eli Miller and Travis Briscoe were other event leaders. The leading bulls include Bezerk, Blame it on the Whiskey, and Resident Evil.

While we were there, we played Spin and Win with the fans! We gave away Ohio Lottery merchandise, such as shirts, hats, blankets and even instant tickets.

You can find us at the Wrangler Long Live Cowboys Classic Professional Bull Riders event in Columbus on April 27. See you there!

Red Ball is Back!

Sometimes games go into the vault for a little break. That break ends tomorrow for the Pick 3 Red Ball promotion! The Red Ball will be in the mix for every Pick 3 drawing starting February 1 through February 28.RedBall_logo_4c-002.jpg

After each Pick 3 drawing beginning with the midday drawing on February 1, the Lottery will conduct a special Red Ball drawing with six white balls and one red ball in the machine. When the red ball is drawn it means a prize boost of about 20% for all the winning tickets in that drawing. If a white ball is drawn, winners receive the standard prize. The white ball will be removed for the next drawing to increase the odds of the red ball being drawn. Once the red ball is drawn, all of the balls are returned to the machine.

If the red ball isn't drawn after six consecutive drawings, Pick 3 winners get an automatic bonus on the seventh drawing.

Play Pick 3 and get in on the Red Ball fun starting February 1.
