CrazyThere should be---but there won't be---lines forming to buy Classic tickets AND the five-number Rolling Cash Five ($448,000) game in Ohio.

Powerball's up to $110 mil.-----hey, let's go chase that better-odds-of-being-struck-by-lightning pipe-dream.

    Not playing Powerball yet at this point perhaps after several more draws and until then it's OCL for me.

        Up to $67.3 mil for Classic Sat. night and no winner in tonight's Rolling Cash Five, so $745,000 JP for Sat. draw. Come one, come all to Ohio...

            Hi all

            This is really nothing unusual, In simulations I have ran it's nothing for a lottery to go several times

            the number of sets in the matrix without matching the set being tested.  We se PB and MB with much

            greater odds getting way more often but you must consider ticket sales.  I think I read that the normal

            sales are 100,000 to 300,000 per drawing.  13,983,816/300,000 = 46.6. 

             

            Lets say that one person purchased 300,000 tickets then they could expect to win about 1 in 46.6 times

            played.   If sales are 100,000 per game then the overall odds would be around 1 in 140.   If I understand

            correctly the game plays once a week so 52 draws times 2 = 104 drawings over a 2 year time frame.  I

            would guess to say that most of the sales are closer to the 100,000 level so IMHO the game could go 2

            more years without a hit.  Power ball or mega millions can sell 50 million tickets for a single drawing which

            is why they are won more often. 

             

            Just my opinion but looks like they need more system players.

            I will consider the opinion that my winnings are a product of chance if you are willing to consider

            they are not.  Many great discoveries come while searching for something else

              They say the odd is 1:13,000,000 some odd number right?  Just buy every single number since the jackpot is 66 million.

                OCL has 3 draws per week (Monday-Wednesday-Saturday).

                  The cash value is under $34 million, factor in all taxes and the net payoff is $19 million. The only problem with having every single combination is the chance that someone else may have it also thereby wiping out your potential profit. Another slight issue would be orchestrating close to 14 million in total self picks.

                    The net payout is more like $24 mil and a little change.

                    I'll get my usual five tickets.

                      $24 million is just the initial payout which only includes a 25% deduction for federal taxes. The winner will owe the balance of the federal taxes when they file their return which is another 14.6%

                        Chasing lottery rollovers is really stupid. I would feel dumb to keep playing a lottery game that has been rolling for more than 2 years.

                        The lottery decides when a lottery jackpot is going to be won.

                        Most lottery players including some jackpot winners have played more than two years without ever winning a jackpot or even a major prize.

                          I have 5 QP's for the next 10-draws starting with Monday's drawing. My aunt got my tickets(I sent her funds via Paypal) and I should get them in the mail within a couple days. If any of those numbers happens to be the lucky set then I would be thrilled to reward my favorite aunt with a HUGE tip even though she probably wouldn't accept it.

                            What sucks is you can't buy tickets for this game on The Lotter (I couldn't find it anyway).

                            I think it's one of those anonymous states everybody likes.

                              Does Lotter sell tickets for any state games or just simulate certain games and have their own payouts?  You should read their contract and see what you're actually buying.
