Thanks to Senator Ron Mottl who started a campaign to begin lottery in Ohio in 1973. Finally, in 1973, voters approved Ohio Lottery Commission and hence it began. Lottery profits are solely transferred to education. Ohio Rolling Cash 5 started on October 4, 2004, and is contributing to generating education supplement revenues since then. Rolling Cash 5 replaced an existing lottery game named Buckeye 5, a 5-of-5 prize game. It is a 39-ball pool and is drawn nightly, since May 20, 2007.
