The Ohio Lottery sold its first ticket in August 1974, so it has over three and a half decades of experience in delivering a range of exciting games and it knows exactly how to satisfy the demands of Ohio lottery players. The aim of the Ohio Lottery Commission is to ‘help educate the children of Ohio’ using money raised from the Ohio Lottery games, and it achieves this through a range of initiatives that support children in both the primary and secondary stages of education. So far, more than $16 billion has been raised for children’s education in Ohio, so the aim of the Ohio Lottery is certainly being met. Here is the latest Classic Lotto results. For a full breakdown of current and past results from all the other Ohio draw like Rolling Cash 5, Kicker, Ten OH, etc, please visit the Ohio Lottery results page.

The Ohio Lottery Games
Ohio lottery players can participate in both the Mega Millions and Powerball multi-state lottery games as well as several other draw-based games that are designed specifically for Ohio Lottery players. These additional draw-based Ohio Lottery games don’t offer the same kind of jackpots as their multi-state counterparts, but they do offer huge prizes in their own right, as you will see from the following descriptions:
Classic Lotto – This is a 6 from 49 Ohio Lottery game which is played three times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. The base level of the jackpot is $1 million, and a rollover feature allows it to climb to considerably greater heights after a few draws without an outright winner. Ohio lottery players can either select their own Classic Lotto numbers or enter random numbers using a Auto Pick feature.
Rolling Cash 5 – This Ohio Lottery game is played every day and players have to select 5 numbers from the range 1 to 39. If a Ohio lottery players matches all five numbers they win the jackpot, which has a base level of $100,000 and which rolls over if nobody wins. The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 575,757 and the odds of a Ohio Lottery player winning any prize at all are 1 in 9.
Pick 4 – Pick 4 is a twice-daily Ohio Lottery game and the aim here is for the Ohio lottery player to select a four digit number. There are various entry types available and, depending on the type of entry that is made, prizes can be won by matching numbers in any order or in the exact same order as selected.
Pick 3 – As you might have guessed, this Ohio Lottery game is a variation on the Pick 4 game, but here the Ohio lottery player has to pick a three digit number. Games take place twice a day and, as with Pick 4, there are a variety of entry types to choose from.
Ten-OH! – The Ten-OH! game from the Ohio Lottery is a keno-style game that requires the Ohio Lottery player to select 10 numbers from the range 1 to 80. When the Ten-OH! draw takes place (there are two draws held each day) 20 numbers are selected at random. If the Ohio Lottery player matches 5 or more of their numbers then they win a prize, with the $500,000 jackpot going to players who manage to match all 10 of their numbers.
Add to all of these Ohio Lottery games a broad range of instant win games and it is clear that Ohio Lottery players have a great deal to get excited about. And of course, as long as the Ohio Lottery continues to thrive, so will the educational support for the children of Ohio.
