Well, Hoosier Lotto is at $44.5M and with PowerBall reset to $15M, I'll be taking the $6 I won on PowerBall, adding $5 and buy $11 worth of Hoosier Lotto tickets. Hoosier Lotto is almost 12 times easier to win than PowerBall. Hoosier Lotto jackpot odds are 1 : 12,271,512 compared to PowerBall's 1 : 146,107,962. The cash option is probably around $26M about now as well compared to $7M for PowerBall. Higher and easier to win. Hope I win.Big Smile

    Since Hoosier Lotto is at a record level, I wonder if there is going to be a press conference at the store that sold the ticket. If so, I'm gonna show up at the store during the press conference if I win. I think I got some lucky tickets.Big Grin

      Did someone win the Hoosier Lotto jackpot or did it roll?

            Wow. When does Hoosier Lotto draw its game?

            From the Hoosier Lottery website:

            Evening Cut-off Time 10:40 p.m. Wednesday & Saturday

             Drawing Time Daily games, Lucky 5, Mix & Match and Hoosier Lotto drawings are conducted as soon as possible, but not more than 10 minutes after the ticket sales cut-off time.

              Hoosier Lotto (6/48) game does seem do have a different distribution of its numbers than other similar games, the distribution seems to be more even as if a computer is controlling them.

              The next time I come to Indiana to play PowerBall, if it's still rolling I plan to play it too.  I will use my computer to pick some combinations with a similar distribution of numbers. 

              This weekend, it has the largest jackpot in the country so there are probably others heading to Indiana with the same idea.  I doubt if it will keep rolling until the PB jackpot is high enough for me to take a trip to Indiana, but I will be ready if it does.

                Those draw dates aren't consecutive. The distribution looks fine to me.

                  The drawings aren't meant to be consecutive, they show the minimum previous drawings that involved all six numbers of the last drawings. 

                  The numbers are fine but I use the green numbers at the bottom that have the number of the draw that had the numbers and the counts of the hits at the time to formulate combinations to play in future drawings. 

                  When I've looked at the last 50 or so drawings of WVa Cash25 and Ohio Classic Lotto I've seen clusters of events happening at particular times and I don't see that with Indiana Lotto. It's something I've been playing around with and I plan to try it out with the Indiana Lotto the next time I'm over there.

                    Did it roll? Thanks for the information that Hoosier Lotto draws the same days as CA SLP and PB.

                        Yep, it rolled. $46M annuity and the cash option is about $28M.

                            $1,000,000. The first 2 draws, the jackpot stays at $1,000,000, then it increases by $500,000 each time it rolls.

                              Well, to each his own. We all have our own ways of picking numbers. If it works for you, then go for it.

                              I did get a match4 with Classic Lotto on the prediction board with 10 lines this weekend after adding an index feature that acts as a filter.  WVa Cash25 with a pool of only 25 numbers didn't need it but Classic Lotto has 49 numbers and could use the additional help to make winning more affordable.

                              I may start testing the Hoosier Lotto by adding it to the list of games I predict and see what happens.
