The Classic Lotto is one of the games offered by the Ohio Lottery Commission which has been a favorite along with other games in the state. Previously it was called Super Lotto and changed to be The Classic Lotto in the draw in January 2007. Nowadays, there are 3 draws each week, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays at 7.29 pm local time. The jackpot commences at $ 1 million and will continue roll over with the increase of $100,000 in a draw but can be more depending on the ticket sales.
The matrix used in the game is the one of 6/49 so a player must select 6 numbers from a total number of 49. If all those 6 numbers match the player will then be rewarded the jackpot prize. The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 13.98 million, and these are quite good compared to other lottery games. If someone cannot beat the odds of winning the jackpot, at least there are still 3 other prize categories to win in the game. The best a player can get is only by matching one number with the odds of 1 in 54.
Even the average odds of winning any prizes in the game are 1 in just 54. In its history, first it was called Super Lotto and changed to be O’Play in 2005. In this older style, there were 12 prize divisions to win, but now it’s become more challenging with less but bigger prizes.
Like many other lottery games, only those with at least 18 years of age can buy the tickets. They can buy them in the retailers across the country but now also from the online lottery ticket sales companies. If someone can win any of the prizes, he can choose what forms of winning he wants to receive, either in a cash lump sum or in annuity payments. For this second choice, it will be given annually for a period of 30 years and the cash lump sum form will be half the total value of annuity prize form
. A winner needs to claim the winning within 180 days of the draw time and within 60 days decide which winning form option he will take. Later than that, it will be paid in the form of annuity prize.;
