Ohio LotteryOhio Lottery: Massive Ohio Lotto jackpot finally won
52
Rating:

1 winner of $73.3 million

Somebody had to win it eventually.

The Ohio Classic Lotto ended a non-winning streak of more than 2-1/2 years this weekend, with one winning ticket sold for a $73.3 million jackpot.

Saturday's Classic Lotto numbers were 3, 8, 26, 28, 34, and 35.  The Kicker was 103479.

The lone winning ticket was sold at Grumpy Grandpa Get & Go Food in Ashtabula.  It was the first Classic Lotto winner since Dec. 7, 2011, which was for a $2.7 million prize.

After its long climb to more than $73 million, the jackpot reverts to $1 million for Monday night's drawing.

        I don't think the winner feels that way.

              I'm glad it started over....  now I can save my dammmmmn $$$ playing that bogus game..lol 

               

              No more classic lotto for me unless it gets over $60M for now on.

               

              At least Powerball/Mega Millions is more predictable for when it'll be hit.

                I only need a couple of million and I'll be set for life. Preferably 6 or 7 million. I'd be set with 5 mill too.

                  I would be set for life on 1 - 3 million but I'm still not playing Classic Lotto ever again unless it gets to over 60 Million because I've wasted thousands of dollars in that 2.5 year frame. I know I'm wasting money at other lotto games too, but it's not as fun to play as Mega/Powerball because the Classic lotto game drags and drags and drags and drags before anyone ever hits it.

                    I dont get how the PB and even more so the MM's could be fun to play. The odds in the PB and even more the new MM are astronomical. You will most likely never win the jackpot or even the second tier prizes because of the odds.

                    The MM's went from 175 million to one to 258,890,850 to one. The PB's currents odds are what the MM's used to be 175 million to one. The CL is 13,983,816 to one. I pray to god they dont mess with the CL, its just fine as it is. The CL clearly has the best odds for winning the JP. The jump in odds is immense and I will always play the CL because I have a good chance to win, you dont have half a chance to win with the MM or PB. And I can tell you from experience after playing all three games at varying times in my life, that I've gotten closer to winning the CL jackpot more than I ever did playing MM and PB combined. I would say I've had at least ten tickets in all the years I've played that were very close to the CL JP. Nota one with the MM or PB. And like I was saying, I dont want that much money, just a couple of mill and I'm quitting work the next day.

                    With the Mm's and PB the house always wins.

                          Of course the winner is supposed to be ecstatic. Could you imagine PB/MM rolling for 2-1/2 years?. People will be getting second mortgages, spending their food money, their tuition fees and babies'  money just to get in on that game, and that's even the non-compulsive players. The compulsive gamblers most likely, will end up in jail or in the hospital. The jackpot will be out of this world.

                            Congrats to the winner!  I wish it would have been me.  I'm actually a little relieved it got reset.  I can finally take a break from it.
