I posted this MONTHS AGO and yet it is still increasing. I think it's been November or October of last year since someone won this lottery, and I'd guess it's EXTREMELY COLD...as a result I have been putting most of my lottery dollars into it.


Anyone from Ohio noticing this?

    According to his post, SmoothJuice of Michigan noticed it a month ago and started driving down to pick up a few tickets.  I play both Classic Lotto and MegaMillions and while I lucked out and got a 4of6 a month ago, I usually have a hard time getting even a 3of6 with 20 lines.  I'm more likely to win something with MM than CL so I play MM more.

      Business will take me to Ohio in about a month....I noticed awhile ago that it was increasing quite a bit, and I'm hoping the non-winning streak continues till I get there and can win the jackpot!  Selfish of me, I know!

        The non winning streak has continued and all the other state guests have had their chance to win it so now I will give it a try.  Good luck if you're still trying to win it.

          Don't waste your money on this game.  Save it for the raffles instead.  8 1/2 months of rolls is just an indication that this game needs to be changed.

            Changed to what?  To Rolling Cash5 (5/39) with a starting jackpot of $100K or to MegaMillions (5/56+1/46) with a starting jackpot of $12M (cash $7M)?  Both these games are won often because of the numbers of players.  Games with a 6/49 matrix used to be won more often when they were the only game available but now the easier games or big jackpot games are more popular.  Any game that fill the niche of $1M to $25M jackpots is going to have the same results.

              I have been playing this game as much as possible (finances allowing) and last night I got 3 of the 6 numbers.....won $2.....yippee!  LOL!  A co-worker of mine last year got 5 of the 6 numbers and won $1,500 but of all the times I've played, it's even difficult to get 3 of the numbers and I usually play $10 to $20 at a time.  Also, if memory serves me correctly, I don't think this game has been won since August 2008.  I've only been playing this game for the time being right now as well.  Someone's got to win it sooner or later!  :-)

                With a jackpot of $20M and MegaMillions being won, the Ohio Classic Lotto was looking attractive for a while but now that the cash value of the MM jackpot in more than $20M again, OCL will fade into the back ground again.

                  I'm not sure about that :-)  At least not for me, my lottery dollars will still be going to Classic Lotto and the reason I say that is that the chances of winning the Mega Millions jackpot is:  1 in 175,711,536 and the chances of winning the Classic Lotto jackpot is:  1 in 13,983,816.

                  Quite a better chance of winning the Classic Lotto than the Mega Millions! Banana

                    I spoke too soon.  With MegaMillions win last night, Classic Lotto is looking good again. (At least it is to me, I'm picking 10 lines to play this evening.)

                      Yes and yet the overall odds of winning anything with Classic Lotto are 1:53.6 and 1:39.8 with MegaMillions.

                        Ditto.  It has happened again but this time I think someone will win Classic Lotto.  With odds of 1:13M and a cash value of $12.4M and MM down to $12M(cash value $7.4M) a lot more players will be buying CL tickets.  This time I will be playing 20 or more lines.  Good luck if you play.

                          In spite of their odds, MegaMillions maybe won several more times before someone wins Classic Lotto.
