Ohio Lottery conducts fourth Vax-a-Million drawing
COLUMBUS – Today, the Ohio Lottery conducted the fourth of five Ohio Vax-a-Million drawings at the Ohio Lottery’s draw studio in Cleveland.
This week’s drawing included 3,428,514 adult entries in the drawing for $1 million, and 150,187 Ohioans age 12 to 17 entered the drawing for a college scholarship. That marks an increase of 66,311 adult entries and 6,583 scholarship entries from the previous week.
The drawing was conducted using a Random Number Generator and observed by a representative of the Ohio Auditor of State. A behind-the-scenes video of the process is available.
Results of the drawing were provided to the Ohio Department of Health to verify the winners ahead of the Wednesday, June 16, 2021 winner announcement at 7:29 p.m.
With more than 5.4 million Ohioans who have started the vaccination process, not all who are eligible have entered. Ohio Vax-a-Million is an opt-in program, meaning you are not automatically entered. It takes less than two minutes to enter online at ohiovaxamillion.com. Those without Internet access can also enter by phone at 1-833-4-ASK-ODH (1-833-427-5634). Opt-in entries were collected beginning May 18. The deadline to enter the final drawing is Sunday, June 20, 2021, at 11:59 p.m.
Once you enter, your entry will be carried over through all the drawings. You do not need to submit your name each week. The entry list will be reviewed, and all duplicate entries will be removed prior to each week’s drawing. In addition, any winner will be removed from the eligible draw list for subsequent drawings. Vaccination records will be verified for winners. If you are an Ohio resident who was vaccinated in another state, you are eligible, but will need to present proof of vaccination.
Winners will be announced each Wednesday at approximately 7:29 p.m. The final announcement will take place on Wednesday, June 23. You can view video past winner announcement videos at the following links:
