Have Fun, Play Responsibly

The record breaking $1.5 billion Powerball jackpot has many dreaming, but the Ohio Lottery wants you to remember – It’s just a game, so keep it fun and play responsibly.

Your odds of winning the jackpot on Wednesday night are one in 292,201,338. Players really need to keep that in perspective. A few simple responsible gaming tips for those who choose to gamble include:

  • Set and stick to a limit of time and money
  • Think of it as entertainment, not an investment
  • Don’t borrow money to gamble
  • Don’t gamble to escape feelings of anxiety, stress or depression.

Anyone needing information concerning problem gambling can call the confidential Ohio Problem Gambling Helpline at 1-800-589-9966, any time 24 hours a day or visit the Ohio for Responsible Gambling website at www.org.ohio.gov.
