You did not copy the complete sentence.  If I put a period on the sentence where YOU ended it, you'd be correct.  But the sentence in the article right now is correct the way it is.

I agree! almost like as if the "selective" editing was from NBC news.

    Mega Millions and Powerball have not been rolling over for more than 2 years without a jackpot winner. Ohio classic lotto playership has to be very low.

    I didn't go crazy on tickets but I did get 3 picks for 10 draws. I do have wishful thinking but I am NOT insane.Wink

      I've tried OCL several times and have given up... I've never won anything back.  At least with MM or PB I've won a few dollars back.

      You are not a crazy lottery player, because you stopped playing an unwinnable lottery game.

        [The following numbers may not be precise. I'm going from memory.]

        The Lucky For Life game in New England used to have 1-in-13.8M odds for the top prize; there were winners once every 3 months or so.  Then, they changed it to 1-in-41M odds, and there hasn't been a winner for that 5/43 + 1/43 matrix yet (7 months).

          Ohio classic lotto represents lottery insanity at its best. Can you imagine playing every drawing for over 2 years, and have a first time player winning the jackpot.LOL

              Even the clerks selling tickets were unaware of how long it had been since OCL had been won. It's like as if a $60+ million jackpot is stale news.

                Do not play that lottery game. Why would you play a lottery game that takes forever to win the jackpot?

                  I'm a first time OCL player even though I bought 10 draws. Smile

                      10 lottery tickets in 1 lottery drawing is better than 10 lottery tickets for 10 draws.

                        Actually it's just 3 QP's for each drawing but I did have 10 draws.

                          I play MM and PB sporadically, because I hate chasing jackpot rollovers.
