8. Ohio

Largest Single Jackpot: $270 million (2006)

The Ohio Lotto's motto is "Take a chance on education. Odds are, you'll have fun!" Since it began in 1974, more than $17 billion in lottery profits have gone to a state education fund. Since 1989, the state lottery association has hosted a game show called Cash Explosion Double Play which runs on Ohio TV. The largest jackpot in the state's history went to an individual in the town of Lyons for $270 million.
