OHIO — With the Mega Millions jackpot reaching well over 1 billion dollars Tuesday night, many people have hundreds of tickets to check. If you don’t want to try and pick through all of the numbers and risk you make a mistake there is an easy solution that should cut your ticket checking time in half.
If you own a smartphone you can download the Ohio Lottery App which has a feature that allows you to easily scan ticket bar-codes.
Once you open the app you just simply hit the camera icon at the bottom of the screen and it will prompt you to take a picture of the ticket’s bar-code. The app will then tell you if you have a winning ticket. If you decided to get risky and buy multiple tickets or if you were in a major office lottery pool this option is an easy way to double check all of your numbers.
This application will work for any Ohio Lottery game including: Mega Millions, Powerball, Lucky for Life, Classic Lotto, Rolling Cash 5, Pick 3, Pick 4, Pick 5 and any scratch off instant game.
