    Sounds like winning Ohio classic lotto is a headache!  Lol

    Winning the Ohio Classic Lotto with its present jackpot would be just right.  It's enough to feel comfortable without the burdens of being considered filty rich by those around you.

          Come on people Megapiler! Megapiler! Megapiler!Hyper

          The megaplier doesn't multiple the jackpot so why would anyone trying to win a $550 million jackpot spend an extra buck on it when they could spend it on another chance to win the jackpot?

            I'm always surprised to hear people talk about not eating well in a country where nobody bothers to plant a garden in their back yard and many don't even bother to learn how to prepare food even if it's available to them.

            You are clearly living in a different country from the one I'm living in. "Plant a garden in their backyard"???? Really??? hahahah, that's a joke rihgt?. A where exactly is this backyard that i'm/we're supoosed to have?? You certainly are kidding right??

            Well, i'm always surprised to hear people talk about the country they are living in but really have no idea of how or what life really is like for many if not most in the same country you are talking about. I live in a very nice neigborhood and i'm not even allowed to plant flowers much less food. Not to mention the MILLIONS of people who live in apts/condos/town homes or even neighborhoods where due to 'zoning' nothing can be planted for consumption. A back yard huh?

            And about preparing food that's available to them, come on. Really? You are one of those that really think that the garbage offered in these supermakets count as real food right? hahaha, again, another laugh. Good luck to you and enjoy your garden. You probably were being sarcastic so my apologies if i came off a bit harsh.

              Its already a headache now dealing with all those people and i'm broke!! LOL.. So i'll gladly take the cash and the new problems that may arise as a result. I'll trade my current problems for new ones any day. At least with those new headaches, I'll be able to eat exceptionally well, get the best healthcare, travel at will and quite comfortably, have the freedom for myself to nurish and rejuvenate by simply getting away. Trust me I'll find comfortabe ways of dealing with these suposedly new problems, i'm sure of that!!!!

                Fair point. I get your logic but think of this.....since the new rules have been implemented, there have been 39 million dollar winners, THIRTY NINE!!!!. Most of which only won $ 1 million. Had they bought the megaplier, their winnings would have ranged from $2 million - $5 million. And since NO ONE has won the big prize and there have been 39 second place winners, i think that suggests that the odds of winning the second place prize is MUCH MUCH higher. Hence the need for multiplier!!!

                  Stack47,

                  Because they are much morel likely to win $2 to $5 million than the jackpot. Or 2 to 5 X $5,000, etc...

                  G26GRACE27,

                  Interesting that your horosocope has evidently adjusted ti the new MM matrix!

                  Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                  Lep

                  There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                    Well I thought the 1 billion mark would be Jan 10th, but it will be before the years.

                     

                    On another note, I bought 2 QP, and 2 Self pick with megaplier. Good luck to me

                          Did you ever think that THIRTY NINE million dollars winners won because they brought more tickets rather than less with the chance to double their money only if they won?

                            Blind Trust is a good idea but wouldn't do you any good in most States. The reason for this is because in MOST States, not all, even if a prize is claimed under a Trust, the person/trustee/beneficary's name is STILL public knowledge. It all depends on the States you're in. No winner Tuesday will certainly yield a $800-$900million range.....EASILY!!!

                            Wait!!! I take that back. The Blind Trust is actually a TERRIBLE idea i think. Because its you who will have little control over the Trust i think. Remember, a  Blind Trust does not necessarily means blind to the public, it can mean blind to YOU, the beneficiary. Thread carefully my firend, they can be complicated so do your research and plan wisely for your SECOND prize win. ; ))

                            My state has a blind trust and keeps your name private.

                              If you don't like where you live then move.  I wasn't always where I live now.

                              Oh, ok then. I'll just move tomorrow morning. Silly me, what have i been thinking all this time working 2 jobs, saving for my future and being prudent with my finances. Crazy crazy me, i'll just up and move first thing tomorrow morning....to a house with a back yard where i can plant a garden just like you right? The madness that exists out there is beyond me, you have a great day RJOH and good luck to you.
