Now that MegaMillions jackpot is $25M and PowerBall jackpot reset to $20M and Ohio Classic Lotto jackpot has grown to $13.2M with odds of 1:14M, it starting to look good again.  I may play a few lines Monday.

    With PowerBall offering a jackpot of $20.0M/$10.0M with odds of 1:195M and MegaMillions offering a jackpot of $12.0M/$8.0M with odds of 1:175M, Ohio Classic Lotto offering a jackpot of $13.4M/$6.7M with odds of 1:14M is really looking good tonight.  I will definitely pick up a couple of tickets for tonight's drawing.  Good luck if you're playing too.

      Classic Lotto jackpot continues to grow, I thought it would be won by now.

        Classic Lotto continues to grow and now that it's Monday and MM and PB aren't played today, it make a good alternative to start off the week.  It's jackpot is only $14.9M but so are its odds.  Its annuity amount of $300K a years isn't bad either.

          I thought about winning it but I figured I would just let the jackpot grow some. In the meantime, I will focus my mind on much bigger sights and use the Classic Lotto as a fall back plan if all else fails. BedDreaming...

            That's the reason I only play it on Monday unless the PB and MM have reset to their lowest amounts.  Now that PB is at $95M, I prefer to play it on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

              I think tonight is the night for me to win the Ohio Classic Lotto jackpot. The nice couple at the Corner Market will be happy to get a nice little check for selling the winning ticket.

                Good luck to you, I'll be playing again next Monday if nobody has won by then.  While OCL has better odds of winning the jackpot I do better winning smaller prizes playing PB so I'm putting my money on PB tonight.

                  I can understand your rationale. Good luck to you tonight my friend. It would be nice if we both won a jackpot tonight. I hate to say I need it, but I certainly could use a huge win!

                    I can't figure out why I always do better with PB.  At the last minute I decided to put $10 on both PB and OCL which I also posted on the prediction board.  For OCL I matched 1 four times for nothing and for PB I matched 2+1 for $7.  Seems like half the time I play PB in spite of the higher odds I win something and most of the time I play OCL, I win nothing.  It's as if the odds don't mean anything when it comes to winning the lower prizes in these games.

                    PB was won and will reset to $20M this Saturday so I probably be playing OCL again.

                      No, I tend to do better with the larger games than I do with OCL though I think it is far easier to win the OCL jackpot than it would be to win the MM or PB jackpots. I have played OCL over the last two months and have not won anything. It is a bit frustrating but with the jackpot at over $15 million, it's really the best bet in town right now. As you stated, Powerball has been reset so it just makes more sense to play OCL. That said, I do think I will hit the jackpot on either the MM or OCL before this year is out.

                        The biggest prize I ever won was $1500 playing the old 649 Super Lotto in 2002, that's the reason I still play OCL when the other jackpots are low.  But when it come to smaller amounts $300 and less, I've done better playing MM and PB.  Match 3 for $2 is hard.  I wish Ohio paid $5 for a match3 like Michigan does for their 647 game.

                          I agree. I used to do very well playing Michigan's Classic Lotto 47 game. I would win $5 at least once every three plays. But with the OCL, I have not had any success, sans once or twice.

                            At $15.3M, it's not going to be long before someone wins the OCL jackpot and it resets to $1.0M.  I think I will play OCL today and not wait until Monday.  Good luck if you're playing too.

                              If I was in Ohio I would be playing Ohio Classic Lotto a lot because of the odds. I drove up to the Massachusetts/New Hampshire border to buy a hot lotto sizzler ticket because its at 14 mil at 1 in 11 mil odds for 3 plays 10 draws.
