Looks like the clerks will get plenty of practice running the play slips before this jackpot is won.

    I just can't understand why no one is winning!  It hasn't been won since last August, next month will be a year that no one has won it provided it isn't won before then.....just strange!  We must all be playing the same numbers!  LOL!  It's now up to 29.7 million!

      Well, it's good for us that nobody hit. More people probably played the Mega yesterday instead? Or some just don't like the Classic game? Who cares about that now. Why try to figure that out? But now with the "cash jackpot" at $10,246,500 it is tempting to throw just a little more cash on Saturday's drawing. I only played $5 today, got nothing back tonight.

      Saturday is the day to play the game now!

        I played MegaMillions yesterday and played Classic Lotto today, it's not often I can play 2 games with nice jackpots locally.  I had almost given up on Classic Lotto until I matched four on the forth and now that MM was hit, I'll spend more time picking my CL numbers and hoping to get lucky.

        The payouts were in the $50K range which means tickets sales were probably as good as ever.  Probably too many players like me who are using a system to pick their combinations and missing those combinations with mostly low or high numbers and a small range.

        As long as I didn't win, I'm glad to have a chance to try again.

          I was going to splurge on MM and CL tomorrow, but I'm going to skip it since somebody won MM and splurge on CL. Instead of making statistical picks, I'm going to add in my "personal" numbers (just for the heck of it, since it is my bday) and maybe use some wacky combinations, such as 4 low numbers or 4 high numbers, 3-in-a-rows, etc. Hat

            Good luck tonight Jim!  BTW, Happy Birthday!  Hurray!

              Strange set on tonight's, "7-11-2009", drawing: 16-22-31-32-33-43

              But at least it rolled over for Monday's drawing. $30.1 actual for annuity.

              But, $10,384,500 "after taxes" for taking the "Cash" amount.

              We get to play again!

                The way this game is going, we may get lots of chances to play again before someone wins the jackpot.  Twenty lines and the best I could do was one match3 for $2.   I think I need a strategy adjustment.

                  I just can't believe that no one is winning this jackpot, just unbelievable!  It seems it always goes up $400,000 on Saturday's.  Probably because everyone is playing it.  I only had one number on two separate lines but of course, I haven't played anymore than my normal $5/per game and I use the same numbers.  Whenever this jackpot is won and whoever wins it, is going to be one happy camper!  Big Smile

                    Keep your head up RJoh...we Buckeyes are a resilient lot.


                    Played my and my family's name/birthday numbers on Saturday. Spent $30, won $74. Managed to match 4/6 once. Figured numerological numbers have as good a chance as statistical numbers.


                    Gonna cash this one in tomorrow, and play $30 more, the rest goes into my checking account for my phone bill Thumbs Up

                      Thanks, looks like I had a little luck! 4 of 6 is always a nice $70.

                        It "rolled again"!

                        Now it's for Wednesday's $30.4 annuity.

                        Or "after taxes" Cash value of $10,453,500!

                        There is still a chance on a good jackpot for Ohio!

                          It rolled again.

                          Now it is $30.6 million annuity for Saturday 7-18-2009.

                          Or "taking the after taxes Cash amount" of $10,557.000

                          There is still a chance for a big hit in Ohio!

                            System players like me will have 3 days to come up with their best picks.  I have defined all 389 winning combinations  by 173 number distribution patterns of which lately most have been in the top 21 which cover 31% of all past drawings .  Trying to cover all 30+ past drawings to include all 49 numbers have caused me to have a lot of match2's instead of 4's or better.  Tonight, had I just covered the last 8 drawings I might have done better.  Tonight I will start going over all my data to not only pick the most popular number distribution patterns but also to limit my parameters in other areas such as the most popular minimum number of past drawings that had all the winning numbers and other such parameters.  Good luck if you're playing Saturday.

                              I think at this point if someone finally wins this I will be ecstatic, even if it isn't me.
