Lottery Myth vs Lottery Fact: Drawings

If you’re a fan of our Ohio Lottery draw games, you’ve seen the nightly Ohio Lottery drawings with the bouncing numbered balls.

But not all players are convinced that the numbers are random. Some believe the drawings are rigged.

We’re going to bust that myth with some drawing facts.

The numbers are drawn randomly using ball drawing devices that are tested and certified by the Auditor of State and independent third parties.

Before the drawings take place, the machines are tested for randomness. Even the balls used for the drawing are selected randomly from several sets.

Click here to watch a video about the drawing process and let our draw staff walk you through the process from top to bottom.

All Ohio Lottery drawings are open to the public. You can make an appointment to visit the drawing and watch the process for yourself by calling our security office.
