    I still would like to see a joint Michigan-Ohio game one day. I admit it probably won't happen.

        So is the game ball drawn or computerized? Is the game have 6 numbers out of 49 plus a bonus ball? I'm happy that Ohio goes back to Classic Lotto. Is this game replaces Lot 'O Play?

          Why?  There is no advantage for Ohio to split its profits with Michigan, that is the same kind of logic that store clerks use that think lottery winners who bought tickets in the store where they work should share their winnings with them even though they contributed little or nothing to the price of their tickets.

           * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

            Ball drawn - no bonus ball - yes, it replaces Lot 'O Play...

              RJOh...it is not as simple to say "There is no advantage for Ohio to split its profits with Michigan."  One big advantage to having two large states in a jackpot lottery game is the potential for greater sales which would lead to higher jackpots which leads to more lottery reveune for the state.

              They could work together to be sure that winners shares are covered and expenses/profits are divided  based upon sales generated.

                Ohio and Michigan already share the multi-state game MegaMillions for those players who want to play for an extra large jackpot.  The Classic Lotto 6/49 game will fit nicely between Rolling Cash5 and MegaMillions.  Some people use similar logic when starting a lottery pool but most people still prefer to take their chances alone and keep all their winnings rather than sharing them.
