Powerball fever is at an all-time high, and people are flocking to local retailers in search of their chance at the now $1.5 billion jackpot! It will be busy, but that doesn’t mean you have to stand in line to wait for a clerk. There are many ways to play Powerball, and we’re going to give you tips to get in and out quickly.
If you want to skip the line, just look for our self service machines. You simply insert your money, then choose the Powerball game. You can buy auto-pick tickets in increments of $2, $4, $10 and $20 at our instant ticket vending machines.
Maybe you’re familiar with the tall, red touch-screen machine we call the MP because it’s a great spot to get your KENO tickets. You can also purchase your auto-pick Powerball tickets using the MP. Simply insert your money, choose the multi-state games option on the touch screen and tap the Powerball logo.
If you like to choose your own numbers, you can either fill out a bet slip in the retail location and give it to the clerk or use our ePlayslip on your smartphone. The ePlayslip app allows you to choose your numbers and save your bet slips. Each bet slip has a barcode, and you can scan the barcode at any of our self-service machines or have your Ohio Lottery retailer clerk scan it for you.
