    thewiz,

    Here's the big question: are you going to become a Platinum member now?





    I don't know about platinum member, but Lottopro spokesperson for sure.

    Wiz, Congrats! What ya gonna do with all that cash? The experts say you should by yourself a little somthing or take a small vacation to reward yourself and bank the rest. Big  to you.

        Second Winner Claims Share 

        TOLEDO&The second holder of one of three winning tickets sold in an Ohio Lottery on-line game has come forward to claim their prize. Validating his winning ticket at the agent location, Ernest L. Wilcox of Bryan will receive $104,667 for matching five numbers in the February 1, 2005Rolling Cash 5 drawing.

        After mandatory federal and state tax withholdings totaling 28.5 percent, Wilcox will receive a check for $74,836.91. He picked his own numbers. The winning numbers were 3-4-6-16-17. Wilcox purchased the winning ticket from Mikes, 1310 W. High Street in Bryan. Mikes receives a $500 bonus for selling the winning ticket. 

        James B. Matteson of Cleveland was the first winner to claim one-third of the $314,001 Rolling Cash 5 jackpot. Matteson was a winner in more ways than one. As owner of Carusos Bar, he sold himself the ticket from this winning agent location. He also picked his own numbers. The holder of the other ticket sold in this game purchased their winning ticket at Warren Village Beverage, 3330 Warren Road in Cleveland. They have not claimed their prize. Warren Village Beverage also receives a $500 agent-selling bonus.

        Increase your odds of having fun, play Ohio Lottery games.

            Don't forget to save your non-winning tickets for tax purposes. It's always nice to see someone win. Congratulations

            Don't forget to flip those 6's/9's.

              thewiz- now that you have won do you see yourself playing a few extra lines or keeping it the same for each game.

                  You have to pay 40% total in taxes when this is all said and done? That is crazy.

                      Was that after they changed to 5-39 or before?  I KNOW FOR SURE I WILL hit that soon myself!



                        That was before Illinois went to  5/39.    At the time , I hit the little lotto  (twice) for 200,000 dollars....each...four months apart!  That was a exciting year...2001 !!

                      Since the state of Illinois has gone to 5/39...it has been a little tough to line up all the numbers on one line. BUT, it can be done..just as the WIZ has proved.

                       WAY TO GO WIZ !!!!!!!!!!!!             

                      Goes to show you that if you pick a "select" group of numbers and "Wheel" them for "maximum"  effect......you can and will line up numbers for a big win.

                       Again.... WAY TO GO WIZ.

                      The state takes 3 per cent and the city of Chicago takes 29 per cent...what a ripoff......and when you go down there...they only cut a check on the spot if it is no more then 25,000 dollars and anything over that amount has to go through the state capitol...don't know why...but I got my checks in 4 weeks time.

                      Go and have some fun!!!!!!

                           I am sorry about what I said earlier about taxes...What happened was that I think that the feds took 3 per cent and the state of illinois took 29 per cent. I was just excited and naturally made that mistake.    Go figure!

                            $200k? IN the Little Lotto before 5-39? The payouts back then were like 80k max if there was one winner and then split accordinly with more winners as it was parimutuel.

                              Not true!  The little lotto was always at 200,000 dollars without rollovers until feb 25, 2004 when it went to the 5/39.  The bad thing was if there was more then one winner...you had to split the 200,000 bucks.  The 4 out of 5 and the 3 out of 5 also had larger payouts then. Now they are pitiful.
