      dead wrong again as usual thrifty. this ohio thing is a good play from now until it is hit. jackpot amount extemely enticing considering the odds compared to the 2 pie in the sky games everyone seems to be chasing twice a week. every living and breathing person in ohio and states within 15 miles of an ohio lottery store should be playing this with both fists and 100% of their lottery budget. anyone who steps into one of those ohio slot parlors and pumps money away should rethink their gambling MO and play this instead. there is only a limited time that you can play anything considering the age of most players. you come across as the ultimate miser who doesn't chase rollovers? makes absolutely no sense to just dive in occasionally unless financial constraints prevent it. i'd give my left gonad to be close enough to ohio to chase this. far and away the best lottery option out there right now. the fact that it hasn't been hit for 2 years is no rational reason not to play it. after it gets hit then it would irrational to play it.

          I only play MM and PB.

          I wouldn't waste any money on either one right now. Why would anyone play MM with a $20 million jackpot and horrendous odds when they can play classic lotto which has better odds than MM 2nd place prize.

            I tend to agree. Unless the drawings were being fixed, it's completely irrelevant that it hasn't hit in over 2 years. The only thing that's relevant is 66 million and only 1 in 14 million odds. If I were in Ohio this is the only thing I would be playing. I wish I could play this game so bad. And there is no mega ball either? Only 6 of 6? And it's played 3 days of the week? I think I might have to take a little trip to Ohio, or somehow acquire tickets in this game.

                masone gets it. 66m and 14-1 odds seems like a no brainer. anyone who knows someone in ohio or knows someone who knows somebody in ohio should be sending $$ to have them mail you tickets. thrifty can "dream" all he wants but wasn't the NY state motto a dollar and a "dream". i tend to stick to state lotteries "better odds" but smaller prizes which keep you under the radar. these people who don't play unless it's 300 million or more are missing out on a chance (minimal as that might be) to hit one and not draw attention and the problems that will arise from a major hit. this ohio one must be covered with at least 1 ticket by ohioites. forget PB or Mega until this one is taken down.

                        One theory is that more Ohioans are chasing Mega Millions and Powerball since Ohio had a few big Mega Millions winners awhile back. There is no guarantee that I will win any lottery (I don't even have a play in for tonights Classic drawing), but I can guarantee that I will make that long road trip to Ohio should no one win tonight! I might not win even then, but I prefer to have a chance rather than no chance. Why I have won more little prizes from Ohio Classic lottery than I have from Illinois raffle games (I have won nada, zilch, zero). I would much rather drop $20 for multiple chances to win Ohio Classic lottery than to subsidize the Illinois raffle...why there were even some winners who bought a ticket for the very first time. Not cool.

                        Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                        The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

                            Ohioans look at the Big picture in a small way, if they're unlikely to win either jackpot then they would rather play the game with the best chance of winning something and that's MM with odds of 1:14.7 vs OCL with odds of 1:53.6.  When they start thinking jackpot only, they'll buy more OCL tickets.

                              If more people in the neighboring states think like you, this Saturday ticket sales could be the largest since the good old days of Super Lotto Plus when there were as many out of state jackpot winners as Ohioans.  (Those were the days before PB and MM were sold in the mid-western states.)
