One ticket. I'm in for just one ticket. With Powerplay. 

Multiple tickets for Ohio Lottery at $59.6 mil, and Michigan Lottery right across state line not too far at $3 mil. Either work just fine. And much better odds.

Nobodys won Ohio classic Lotto yet!? I cant remember when the last time it was won, is it a record yet?

    Hasn't been won in about two years. Don't know for certain about a record, but gotta believe it has to be.

      I agree with everyone else that's saying there's not really enough to get excited about. We had a pool at the job for when the jackpot was above 100 mil. Now we've changed it to when the Jackpot is over 300 mill then we'll play. There's about 50 of us so we won't be rolling in the dough but it will put a smile on our faces.

        I'm in every PB draw. I'm ok with winning the $2 million 2nd prize (with powerplay).

          I got a two week ticket today with four draws.  Two lines with powerplay for $6 and I also would gladly take the $2 million RCBBuckeye.  Debt free and money in the bank now come on numbers.-weshar75

            I am somewhat surprised that USA Mega's site doesn't mention the Ohio Classic Lotto being at $59.8 million when

            they list FL, CA and NY Lotto which have much lower prize amounts. What?

                The last time jackpot fever was discussed someone mentioned that the kick off point for it is now $300M. It seems to keep creeping up.

                The media might as well keep file films and use them instead of interviewing a new batch of all-of-a-sudden lotto experts.

                I hope someone hits it before that all starts again.

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

                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.

                        Agree. Obviously they're going for the 'biggest' states population (and sales) wise, but $59.8 mil is way above any other state prize. Got my five tickets for Saturday. Will get three for Mich. draw tomorrow. $3 mil I can work with too.

                          I TURNED $3 DOLLARS INTO $21 DOLLARS.

                          BUYING MULTIPLE LOTTERY TICKETS PER DRAWING INCREASES YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING A LOTTERY JACKPOT.

                          BUT IT ONLY TAKES 1 COMBINATION TO WIN THE JACKPOT.

                          YOU WILL NOT GO BROKE BY BUYING 1 COMBINATION SOMEDAY.

                          BUY ZERO LOTTERY TICKETS TO HAVE ZERO LOSSES.

                            Heard a comedian state," the lottery cost us $169 billion to play but that $169 billion was won by others." It was funny to hear but totally inaccurate.The government,which permits us to gamble, gets a sizeable chunk of the proceeds.Also question the accuracy of that $169 billion amount. 

                            What?

                            Still appreciate the discussion that the  lump-sum option is the  best choice since it may relieve your family from inheritance taxes which are substantial,along with the yearly tax burden of an annuity.  Even if one takes the lump-sum, and does not spend it all, the inheritance tax will still have to be addressed. Any Suggestions on tax shelters? 

                            The lump-sum cash option, may be the preferred choice for most players. Being a creature of habit,still check off the annuity option.  Unhappy  Got to break that habit. Wink  Still might get another Powerball ticket with the cash option. 

                            Another monster jackpot, Oh Yeah, Ye Hah, and Yahoo!!    Crazy

                            To repeat the mantra: "2014 is the year for big jackpot winners."

                              I Agree!

                              I might wake up early and go running.  I might also wake up and win the lottery.

                              The odds are about the same.
