    I mean seriously with this lotto. When do they want this to get hit? Probably never. The amount of money that are raking in with just increasing the annuity 500k a roll which is probably only like 300k in actual money is absurd. This is unreal.

      Wait, when do THEY want this to get hit? Um, if nobody matches all 6 numbers, that means that the jackpot rolls. That's how a lot of jackpot games work. You need to learn how to read. Also, what would be the point in putting in more than $500,000 each roll if the state can't afford to do so? Not all states roll the same amount every time a jackpot rolls. Also, last time I checked, the cash value was around 60% of the current annuity amount, so I don't know why you're complaining.

        Did someone win the Hoosier Lotto jackpot in the last draw? If so, I hope the winner step forward, take cash option, and doesn't have financial problems later in life.

          No. If you want to know if someone won or not, then go to the jackpots page on this site or go to www.HoosierLottery.com.

            Just6ntlc didn't really want to know if anyone won the Hoosier Lotto jackpot, he has been around LP long enough know about the jackpot page. 

            He wanted to post his signature comment "I hope the winner step forward, take cash option and doesn't have financial problems later in life".  He's on a quest to have 4600 posts and he has posted that comment at least a hundred times in the last month.  It doesn't require any thought and it fits in almost any thread.

                It's probably harmless unless Just7, 8, 9, 10, 11 etc. show up.

                    The Hoosier Lottery is soon to enter it's 12th consecutive month without a winner!  It was last won on October 21, 2006.

                      Sounds like the Hoosier Lotto needs some fresh eyes to pick a winner.  I may down load its data base and analyze it with my homemade software to see if being computerized have generate any trends or patterns that might give me an advantage in picking some winning combinations. 

                      If it's not won tonight I may look at the last year of drawings, come up with some combinations and make a trip to New Haven for some tickets.  Ohioans seem to be lucky when playing the PowerBall in Indiana, maybe I'll get lucky with the Hoosier Lotto.

                              It's unusual for a game having a cash value greater than the odds of winning it to go without a winner so long.  Use to be system players and groups from around the world would look for such game to play.  Until the win of a Virgina lottery by such a group some years ago, most states weren't aware they existed.  After that many states came up with rules to make sure that never happened again.  It must be working in Indiana. 

                              I can't image that there aren't a lot of players from out of state trying to win the Hoosier Lotto.  I had plan to be one of them but I'm waiting a while before making a drive to Indiana to buy tickets.  Maybe after tonight's drawing I won't have to think about it.
