What are the odds of “winning big” in the Ohio Lottery?
For one particular $20 scratch-off card, the odds are 3.33 to 1. Those increase, of course, as prize levels increase.
Ohio’s $300 Million Diamond Dazzler costs $20 to play, with the largest prize being $80,000 a year for 25 years – there are seven of those in circulation. The second highest prize, $20,000, are 64.
Make that 63.

She purchased her winning ticket at Speedway #3652, located at 564 N Trimble Rd in Mansfield.
