The “Play it Again” feature is part of most Ohio Lottery on-line games, including Mega Millions/MEGAPLIER, Powerball/Power Play, Lucky For Life, Classic Lotto/KICKER, Pick 3, Pick 4, PICK 5, Rolling Cash 5, and KENO BOOSTER. A second barcode, printed on each ticket above the game logo, permits a retailer to scan the ticket with the 2D reader and duplicate the exact wager information for the next scheduled drawing.
“Play it Again” was added as a convenience for players because it eliminates the need for a new bet card. The feature also allows retailers to reproduce a customer's wager by eliminating the need to manually enter the numbers.
Once the added bar code at the top of a ticket is scanned by the 2D reader the terminal will print out the exact wager showing on that ticket. The terminal will show a confirmation screen before printing the wager so the customer can verify the cost of the new wager.
There is no additional charge for “Play it Again”. The customer pays only the cost of the duplicated ticket.
Yes. The “Play it Again” barcode located at the top of the ticket will read just like a bet card and duplicate the wager regardless of the status of the ticket.
Yes. Simply scan the PIA barcode to duplicate all wager information to produce your new wager.

The jackpot is divided equally among the number of winning tickets.
Lottery winnings, including installments that have not yet been paid, become part of the winner's estate, and are divided according to his or her will or trust. For this reason, the Ohio Lottery encourages Lottery winners to contact a financial advisor and competent attorney as soon as possible.
Example: If a wager is placed on Thursday, can you skip the Friday Mega Millions drawing and play for Tuesday's jackpot?
Players are afforded the opportunity to purchase up to 10 concurrent draws in advance. Research shows that the majority of multi-draw players are satisfied with the current advance draw option.
Yes. The Mega Millions selling bonus is 1/10th of 1% of the advertised jackpot. For example, a $40 million dollar jackpot will award a $40,000 selling bonus for a winning ticket sold in Ohio. When there is more than one winning ticket sold in Ohio, the selling bonus will be a minimum of $10,000 per selling agent. There is a $100,000 cap on the selling bonus.
