Now that OCL is at $16M+, those odds of 1:14M aren't looking so bad. 

I still wished they paid more than $2 for a match3, it would make playing more often a no brainer.

I can't think of a better way to enjoy this holiday weekend than trying to win it.  Good luck to those who's playing.

    I gave it my best shot with the ten lines I posted on the prediction board and matched 3 for $2.  If match3 paid $5, I would be trying again Monday but as things are I'll be spending that $2 on some MM tickets for Tuesday's drawing.

      Jackpot continues to climb to $17.0M/cash $8.5M with an incentive of a free 50¢ pick5 straight ticket with every $5 ticket.  I may give it another try today.

        Do   you  ever  play  the   Ohio    "  Rolling  Cash    5  "      RJOH     ???

         

        Do  you like that game and what is the highest you have ever seen it climb  ???

         

        I  only live  5 miles from Ohio and I have went  over there  and  played it a few times in the past and won small amounts on it now and then

         

        I really like the game and have often thought about driving over there and play it more often

         

        Thanks       and           Good  Luck   on  the   Classic   Lotto

          Yes I do play RC5 once in a while, usually when it's over $300K.  I've seen it go over $500K when it has gone over a week without a winner which is unusual, it's usually hit twice or more every week.  It had over 2700 drawings and that's a lot of data to digest in one day if you don't play it regularly.

          I do try to keep my RC5 up to date just in case I do decide to play.

            I knew it was hit a lot but I didnt know it was hit that often

             

            I usually play QP's on it but have won a few times small amounts....but  I  only  drive over and play it now and then.......thus the QP's I play on it ( and I havent played it for over a year or so )

             

            But  yes  that would be a good game to keep  up to date for sure

             

            I like the odds on it really

             

            I havent  tracked it in any form  ,  but may start  doing  so

              The jackpot isn't as big as Classic Lotto but the lower tiers prizes of RC5 are easier to win. I couldn't get a match3 in the last CL drawing.  Maybe I should stick with RC5 more since a winning strategy for it might help me do better with MegaMillions and PowerBall.

                  I have been trying to hit the Classic for months, but I just can't get consistent enough results.

                  I am using most of Gail Howard's tracking systems, Sum Tracking, Skips Due, Percentage System, Drawings Since Hit, Abbreviated Hit Chart, I keep track of each number individually and track their skips.  I'm currently working on a companion numbers chart.  I also use the averages of Skips Out to help pick some numbers that have been out more than 10 games.

                  I usually come up with about 24 numbers.  My plan has been to wheel 24 numbers every couple of months, but I haven't had any success.  24 numbers is just a crap shoot really.  I have been picking numbers for every draw for the last couple months, but it's not very consistent.  I usually get mostly 3-4 right, but just picking half the numbers randomly can get that result.  I have picked 5 a couple of times and all 6 once.

                      Back in 2002 I matched 5 in Super Lotto for $1500 and I got hooked on trying to match 6 until it ended.  When Classic Lotto came out, I had moved on to PowerBall and MegaMillions but I still like to try and match 6 in a 6/49  game but I don't try as often as I did then because now I have more choices.

                        Now that MegaMillions' jackpot has reset to $12M and Classic Lotto is at $17.4M, I think I'll be trying it for the next couple of drawings and hope I do at least as well with it.  With MM I always managed to get a 0+1 to 3+0 with 20 lines for a couple of bucks.  The odds of doing that aren't quite as good with CL.

                          While MM and PB recharge their jackpots, I think I'll try playing Classic Lotto again for while.  I'm already updating my files and getting ready for this Saturday's drawing.  Will see if my $20 will do any better it than it did with MM and PB.

                            It's Saturday again and the OCL jackpot continues to grow, it's now $18.9M.  It's easier to get a 0+1 for $2 with MegaMillions than it is to 3of6 with OCL for $2 but I'm going to give it another try this evening.  If anyone else is doing the same, good luck.

                              It's a week later and the jackpot is now $19.4M/$9.7M.  Ohio is advertising OCL as having the best odds for winning a big jackpot.  I haven't checked the other jackpots around the country so I'm taking their words for it and playing again tonight.
