I play the Ohio Lottery like most people, for the thrill of the chance to win. For me, it is all about fun, like a little no-calorie treat that I allow myself to enjoy. I do have fun dreaming of what I’d spend the prize winnings on if I won – and so does my family.
So, I’ve never won before and certainly not the big Powerball® or Mega Millions® jackpot! However, it is so fun to play the Ohio lottery and now it is even easier to play the Ohio Lottery. When you get your own Lottery Card™, you can buy and play Powerball® and Mega Millions® right from your phone! (18 year old and over)
This is the first mobile-enabled Lottery Card™ in the US! Now you can get digital tickets sent to your phone – so you’ll never have to fear losing a winning ticket! Plus, you don’t even have to remember to check the numbers because if you win, you are notified by text and picture message. If you win a low-tier prize of under $600, you can get paid electronically with PayPal, so you don’t even have to return to the store to collect your earnings.
You’ll want to make sure you have your location services turned on your phone in order to activate your card (you have to activate it in Ohio). It is so easy, simply text the scratch-off code on the back of your card to the text # provided. They will send you your lottery ticket via text! See my ticket in the top image (with a few blurred out numbers so you can’t see if I become a millionaire on Tuesday! ha!
My family is really close, so much so that my parents plan on buying a large piece of property and building a house for them, my family, my brother’s family, and my sister’s family right next to each other if they won.
My husband, kids, and I love to dream of what we’d spend our winnings on all the time too. If we won the big Powerball® or Mega Millions® jackpot, we have big plans:
- Donate 10% to the church – local, missionary work across the world, homeless shelters in Akron and Ohio, food banks in Ohio, etc.
- Donate 10% to Type One Diabetes Research and human trials – both my kids are diabetic and we’d do anything for a cure!!!!
- Give all of our extended family a sizable portion
- Finish remodeling our home
- Take the whole family on a fun vacation
In fact, we know exactly how we’d share the news with our families. We would invite them to our favorite local steakhouse, Ken Stewart’s Grill for dinner. They would be so surprised! We’d enjoy a delicious dinner and then share the news. Right afterward, we’d drive over to our local car dealership, Fred Martin Superstore and let our parents and siblings pick out a car! Our plan has always been to allow all the younger kids to go to Toys R Us to buy toys! Now, we’d probably go to Smartickles, an amazing local toy store! We’d also put money in our kids, and all our niece and nephew’s college funds.
Speaking of education, I think it is awesome how much the Ohio Lottery gives back to the Ohio education system, about a billion dollars a year!
You can buy the Lottery Card™ at any checkout (not just the service desk) at Buehler’s Fresh Foods, Giant Eagle and Kroger stores statewide. You can purchase for Powerball® and Mega Millions®, for $10, you get 5 plays and $20 gives you 10 plays, plus a small fee of $0.89 for Mobile Play Benefits.
I’ve always given Ohio Lottery as gifts, especially for Christmas. Did you know that 44% of people say that they enjoy receiving a gift card to play the lottery too? I think Christmas shopping just got a little easier this year! Can you imagine giving a gift that totally changes a person’s life forever?!
