    People must not play much, how else would a relativley easy jackpot only 14 million to 1 go so long with no winner.

    compared to California SLP 41 million to 1, Lotto Texas 26 million to 1, Florida lotto 23 million to 1

    NY lotto 22.5 million to 1 have higher odds but get won frequently

    It is kinda weird. There have been 3 winners this year in Lotto Texas. 10mil, 11 mil, and 28 mil. I read in meeting transcripts that the commisioners are a little bummed that the jackpot keeps getting hit before it can get really big.

    When Classic Lotto does get hit, it will probably be some weird combination of numbers on a QP. Or maybe birthday numbers. Who knows?????

      RCBBuckeye, you live in Texas but you have Buckeye in your name-are you originally from Ohio? I take it you follow the lotteries up here as well...

        I grew up in a rural area between Huron and Vermillion. Been in Tx 11 years.

        I don't follow the lotteries too much up there. About 20 years ago I did win almost $1000 getting 5 of 6 on the lotto in Ohio. Can't remember if it was Classic Lotto or what it was called.

        I really miss deer hunting up there. Here in Tx they think deer hunting is sitting in a blind over a feeder. Plus the deer down here are the size of a big German Shepherd. LOL. We do like it here though. Good state, good economy (relatively speaking).

          I grew up just to the east of where you grew up.

          Classic Lotto is what this thread's about..and I think it was called something else way back when, but I forget.

            Did research on it back in the 80's was Ohio Lotto

            Late 80's into 90's was Super Lotto

            Then came Super Lotto Plus wish is like Mega Millions

            They played them together like today with Classic and Mega Millons

            and now its the Classic

              When ever Classic Lotto does hit, there will be lots of players claiming the winning numbers looks like a combination they were going to play but they never thought it would hit.

                Well, unless they have the winning ticket in hand then they can't claim anything.....lol!  No one won it tonight, now up to 27.3 million!  Smash

                  Rolling Cash5 with its $429K jackpot and odds of 1:576K may get some of Classic Lotto players attention.  It not often that a game's jackpot cash amount gets close to its odds of being won.

                    Now that RC5 was won, it won't be a distraction for the Classic Lotto players.  I managed to use all 49 numbers in 15 lines, I just hope I had more than two of the winning numbers in one line.  Good luck if you play.

                      So how did you do RJ?  I played 5 lines and didn't even have 1 number!  LOL!  I thought it was a strange drawing to begin with - 4 of the numbers were in the 40's.  Well, no one won it again, so now it's up to 27.7 million!  I know the tickets are selling because the jackpot went up by $400,000 but I just can't believe that no one is winning it - just strange!

                        I  had every winning number twice but only managed to get two of them on the same line three times.  From the size of the payout, I'm guessing a lot of players matched 3 or better.  It's easier to get a MegaMillion match 0+1 for $2 than it is to get a Classic Lotto match 3 for $2.

                        I never had a chance of coming up with that combination as I usually spread my numbers all over the place.

                              Well, for 15 lines and you got 2 of the numbers on 3 separate lines is pretty good.  It's rare I can even get 2 numbers.  It's going to be interesting to see how long this goes on before someone wins it.
