MyLotto Rewards Catalog Update

If you’re a regular around MyLotto Rewards, you might have noticed that we’ve reintroduced physical items to the MyLotto Rewards catalog!
Now you have the option to use your points for physical items like tablets, headphones and Bluetooth speakers to name a few, plus physical gift cards and digital gift cards are available!
The catalog inventory will vary based on the availability of items.
You can track your purchase through your MyLotto Rewards account by going to My Account/My Physical Purchases and finding the item in the list of recent purchases. Just click on an item description to see the shipping details.
Items will be shipped within about 24 hours of the purchase and can be expected to arrive within 10 days of the purchase.
At the start of the pandemic, physical items were removed from the catalog because they were difficult to get. We’re excited that we can bring physical items back to the catalog because we know our players missed having those options!
Like the gift cards, available inventories for the different items will vary as items are purchased and stock levels change.

Winner Wednesday!

Did you hear?

This Winner Wednesday we're celebrating a $1 million Mega Millions win in Findlay!

Someone purchased a ticket matching the first five numbers in last night's Mega Millions drawing.

Pak-A-Sak in Findlay sold the winning ticket.

If you bought one, be sure to check your tickets!
The winning numbers were 3-5-47-48-67 and the Mega Ball was 7.

Sue from Sandusky was so excited about her $2,500 win on Ohio Bonus Cash that she sent us some details.

She bought her winning ticket at Meijer in Sandusky.

She's already shared some of her winnings with her son and daughter and now she's trying to figure out what she'll do with the rest. 

She did splurge on a few more tickets.

Congratulations, Sue!

How's a new Airstream for Winner Wednesday?

This Winner Wednesday we're talking adventure with our Discover Ohio winner, Lisa!

Lisa won the grand prize including a new 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee and a 2022 Aistream Basecamp.

Today she and her husband Joe got to pick up their new Jeep and travel trailer and hit the road!

Lisa and her husband are avid Ohio Lottery players. Joe was even part of a Mega Millions win at work back in 2004! 

Their luck this time means getting out to explore Ohio and beyond. 

Lisa said her husband had a camper as a kid, but nothing like this.

They love that the Airstream is like a mini house and it's sleek. It's a glamper! 

The couple says their first trip will be to Hocking Hills.

On top of the new camping digs, Lisa won a $1,000 ODNR gift card, $1,000 Hocking Hills gift card, $1,000 Kalahari Gift Card, and a $2,000 Visa gift card.

We hope Lisa and Joe find downtime, fun, and adventure thanks to their win.

Winners! We've got 'em.

Jay found some luck when the Mega Millions jackpot was rolling along to that record $1.33 billion.

He didn't win the jackpot, but he did win $1 million in the July 26, 2022 drawing!

He said had to do a double take at his ticket.

One line had all five numbers to match 5, and just one line below the next wager had matched the Mega Ball plus another number for an extra $4.

He and his wife are keeping their win a secret, even from their kiddos!

How to you spend a $1 million win? Jay plans to pay off the house, a couple credit card bills, and invest the rest. Congratulations!

Caroline was so excited about her Pick 4 win, she messaged the Ohio Lottery Facebook page to find out how she could get her picture taken. 

Caroline won $15,000 playing Pick 4 in the August 4, 2022 evening draw. She purchased tickets at BP on N High Street in Columbus.

Congrats, Caroline!

You can share your win with us too! Just share your winning story with the hashtag #IWonTheOHLottery. You might be our next featured winner!

Deep-Fried Fun at the Ohio State Fair

We had a blast enjoying the fresh-squeezed lemonade, eating way too many funnel cakes and riding the SkyGlider at the Ohio State Fair.

This year’s fair was all about winning, and we’re not just talking about the pig races.

Cash Explosion Super ShowWe kicked off the fair with our Cash Explosion Super Show held on July 31. In addition to one lucky player winning $350,000, our players and audience members won cash, gift cards, merch and more.

Watch for the exciting conclusion of the Cash Explosion Super Show Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. on your local carrier station.

Statue Search
On August 6, the Ohio Lottery held a Statue Search. Those that found all five statues located across the fairgrounds were entered to win $1,000 in scratch-offs, plus some other great prizes.

Each statue represented a different part of the Ohio Lottery: winning, community, education, retail and fun.

Deb B. was the lucky grand-prize winner and took home $1,000 in scratch-offs. 24 other winners received various prizes, including gift cards, scratch-offs and Ohio Lottery merch.Statue Search Winners

The winner of the fair-long Statue Search will be announced soon.

Thank you to everyone who joined us at the Ohio State Fair. See you next year!

Big Wins for Winner Wednesday

Welcome to Winner Wednesday!

It's been a busy couple of weeks watching the excitement grow around that record $1.33 billion Mega Millions jackpot.

Retailers and players alike were pumped to get in on the excitement, and while we didn't have the jackpot-winning ticket, the Mega Millions craze did create a lot of other winners here in the Buckeye State!

Ohio Lottery players shared in more than $2.6 million in prizes from the July 29 Mega Millions drawing. Eleven players won $10,000 prizes.

The Mega Millions drawing on July 26 was lucky for a couple of Ohio players and retailers. 

Hirsch's Marathon in Berea sold a winning 5 of 5 ticket worth $1 million.

BellStore St. Clairsville #1080 in St. Clairsville sold a winning 5 of 5 ticket with the Megaplier for a $3 million prize!

Neither of the prizes have been claimed yet.

The jackpot run that started in April generated $28.5 million in profit for education in Ohio! That is a big win for Ohio students.

Don't forget to share your winning stories with us on social media using the hashtag #IWonTheOHLottery. You could be our next featured winner!

Looking for some fun and a chance to win $1,000 in Ohio Lottery Scratch-Offs? Join our $1,000 Scratch-Off Statue Search August 6 at the Ohio State Fair!
