    I would be set for life on 1 - 3 million but I'm still not playing Classic Lotto ever again unless it gets to over 60 Million because I've wasted thousands of dollars in that 2.5 year frame. I know I'm wasting money at other lotto games too, but it's not as fun to play as Mega/Powerball because the Classic lotto game drags and drags and drags and drags before anyone ever hits it.

    I do that too. Not playing games until the jp starts rising. Problem is I get caught up in resets because I'm into the advanced play feature so as to avoid missing draws and also to avoid buying more than 1 line. No Nod

    Good luck!

    That money's gone fo ever

        Even though the Colo Lottery is a mere 8.5 million, I would be fine with winning that.  Lots less publicity country-wide. 

         

        Wish I could have figured out a way to have someone buy and mail me tickets from the Ohio Lottery.

          Nothing to figure out if you had friends or relatives you trusted with your money who lived in Ohio.

            Of course the winner is supposed to be ecstatic. Could you imagine PB/MM rolling for 2-1/2 years?. People will be getting second mortgages, spending their food money, their tuition fees and babies'  money just to get in on that game, and that's even the non-compulsive players. The compulsive gamblers most likely, will end up in jail or in the hospital. The jackpot will be out of this world.

            God help us if PB or MM ever had a 2 year run. People would be flying in from all over the world to play. The winner would be hounded forever and would be sued dozens of times a year for whatever nonsense people would dream up. Next of kin would be hiring hitmen. FBI would be working overtime trying to foil kidnapping plots.

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

            The odds are about the same.

              1 winner of $73.3 million

              Somebody had to win it eventually.

              The Ohio Classic Lotto ended a non-winning streak of more than 2-1/2 years this weekend, with one winning ticket sold for a $73.3 million jackpot.

              Saturday's Classic Lotto numbers were 3, 8, 26, 28, 34, and 35.  The Kicker was 103479.

              The lone winning ticket was sold at Grumpy Grandpa Get & Go Food in Ashtabula.  It was the first Classic Lotto winner since Dec. 7, 2011, which was for a $2.7 million prize.

              After its long climb to more than $73 million, the jackpot reverts to $1 million for Monday night's drawing.

              Party

                    I don't think the winner feels that way.

                    Ohio residents and those playing from bordering states would much prefer the old Ohio lotto versions...where it was won every month or two and people ACTUALLY WON REAL $$$ on a regular basis. 

                    This Classic is a joke and the higher it gets the bigger a joke it is.

                      HOW SWEET.

                      Would have been even sweet IMO if a multitude of lucky ohio residents won this big!

                      To be shared within at least a dozen or less,premise on how long it has taken to win this.

                      Felicidades! to the big winner.Banana

                      adios.

                        The winner has me to thank.  I am starting to think the lottery gods are sending me a message.  I was traveling and bought megamillions tickets in Michigan and someone (not me) won the megamillions in Michigan.  On the same trip I bought Ohio lotto tickets for 10 consecutive draws and look what happens...someone (not me) wins after 2 1/2 years.  This is not the first time I have seen this trend.  Yep, feeling laughed at by Lady Luck!  Smile

                          I agree ArrowHead.  However, you should be careful expressing views like that at this website, talk about spreading the wealth, that is.  There are very patriotic posters here who might interpret such thinking as bordering on Socialistic Leaning, and given the zealotry their beliefs are based upon, who knows what might happen to your reputation here at LP?  Wink

                            I think thats what the Rolling Cash 5 is for.  It's usually won a couple times a week and while it may not be as much as the OCL, it's still a nice little payout.

                              People will play anything. I'd be irritated with a jackpot that kept rolling. That is a long time to wait but

                              who knows if the winner played all that time or just bought a ticket for that draw? For all the die hards,

                              get smart or die trying. I think the Ohio lottery or just that game itself needs an overhaul. Preferably one

                              that can be won in a month or two. Years is just ludicrous.

                              246 ~~ 485 ~~ 369 ~~ 890 ~~ 705 ~~ 357 ~~ 129 ~~ 165 ~  007 ~ 225 ~ 818 ~ 440 ~  7775 5557
