Ohio Rolling Cash5 rolled to $639,000.00.  The odds of winning the jackpot is 1:575757.  If some one was to play all 575,757 combinations and be the only one to win the jackpot they would win:

match 5 x 1 for jackpot $639,000.00
match 4 x
170@$300 for $51,000.00
match 3 x
5610@$10 for $56,100.00
match 2 x 59,840@$1 for $59,840.00

Total winnings of $805,940.00 equals a profit of $230,183.00 or a 40% return per day on their investment.

    This is the first lottery game in a long time that a person or group could buy every possible combinations and actually make money.  I predict the jackpot will be won today.

        I know that California changed their Super Lottery (added more numbers) to make the odds 41 million to 1 rather than the 14 million to 1 it used to be.  There was a guy that was buying all the tickets (and winning) when the jackpot got big enough that he would make money even if he had to split it with other people.  I don't remember exactly, but I think that he would still make money if there were 3 winning tickets.  The trick was buying all the tickets in time.  He had a lot of people that were buying the tickets.  But now with the odds of 42M:1, it can't be done.

          It's a lot harder to buy 14,000,000 tickets than 575,757 tickets. 

          Years ago there was an investment group that tried to buy all the combinations in a Virginia lottery that had about 10M possible combinations.  They won the jackpot but using a group of people and the terminals at two 7/11 stores for three days, they only managed to buy 8M of the combinations.

          Virginia changed their rules after that to limit the time one group or person can control a ticket terminal if others might want to use it.  I think most states have similar rules now, but the number of combinations in most lotteries are so large they aren't necessary.

          With Rolling Cash5 the time would be limited to one day since it's played everyday except Sunday.

            I wished Rolling Cash 5 was in my area. It seems like its a good game to play with decent odds. (compared to Powerball or MM)

                    I didn't know there was a place you could do that.  Please let me know where it is by PM or email (CalifDude@LotteryPost.com).  I was going to try to post my picks for Ohio for tonight on this forum, but maybe I will just play them myself.

                      This size jackpot only happens a few times a year with these odds.  Most pick5 games have similar odds but their jackpots don't roll or they hardly ever get over $300,000 before they are won.  This game replaced Buckeye5 which was a 5/37 game with a fixed jackpot of $100,000 per winners up to 10 and if there were more than ten winner they shared a million dollars prize.

                        I'm glad I couldn't play my 182 numbers tonight!!  With the lowest number drawn being a 25 I don't think I even had any tickets with 3 correct.  I saved a lot of money!  The jackpot has gone down, so I guess there is a winner (or more)!  I surely hope it was someone from Lottery Post.  It wasn't my sister.

                          I played fifty lines again and didn't win the jackpot either, but I'm glad I had a chance to play.  Some times talking about a system and playing it on paper isn't good enough, it has to be tested using real money in the real world to have any real value.  Winning 50% of my cost back isn't winning a lot but it's better than winning nothing.  I'll continue to test and adjust my system and be ready when the RC5 jackpot reach this level again.  Since all the games (MegaMillions, Rolling Cash5 and PowerBall) I  play are really pick5 games the effort wasn't wasted.

                            RJOh,

                            Have you developed anything to work with the 'bonus ball' in powerball, etc.?

                            In neo-conned Amerika, bank robs you.
                            Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms should be the name of a convenience store, not a govnoment agency.

                              time*treat,

                              Yes.  Since I usually play 20 lines for MegaMillions, I play 20 different megaballs with the most common characteristics of the last 50 megaballs. Right now, most megaballs have not repeated in the previous 12 drawings and have hit 5-11 times in the last 370 drawings. With 20/46 odds and using those characteristics I usually hit one 75% of the time.  Those characteristics change so I review them every time I play.  When I play the PowerBall I do a similar review of powerballs which act quite different than the megaballs so different rules apply.

                              My program/system looks at all the numbers and their sorted positions in previous drawings and print out all their characteristics and based on logic I programmed pick parameters for my picks.  I can choose to widen or close those parameters depending on the number of lines I want its RNG to pick or completely over write the ones I don't like.  If I find myself constantly over writing some of them, since I wrote the program myself I simply rewrite that section so the program/system can change over time too.
