Classic Lotto offers huge jackpots every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday at 7:05 pm. The top prize is $1 million. Players can win up to $100,000 each time they match all six numbers. Tickets are only $1. Players can choose six numbers between 1 and 49 or use the Auto Pick to make a random entry. The jackpot winners have the option of either 30 annual payments or a lump sum amount.
Here is a breakdown of the prize levels and chances of winning. Classic Lotto can be played for just $1, and players have the chance to win as much as $100,000. On the night of the draw, a six-digit number will be generated and players must match it exactly to win the top prize. This is how it works. Take "123456" for an example.

The history of the Ohio Lottery
In May 1973, voters approved a constitutional amendment that established the Ohio Lottery. The first game, Buckeye 300, was launched in August 1974. In 1983, ticket sales profits were transferred to education. That same year, Ohio Lotto was established.
Mega Millions was launched in 2002, and Powerball came out of the Ohio Lottery in April 2010. Since the Ohio Lottery's inception, more than $19 billion has been dedicated to education initiatives throughout the state. This includes funds for special education and vocational programs as well as K-12.
To play Ohio Lottery, you must be at minimum 18 years of age.
