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.

I think a lot of players have a similar idea.  Even though no one won the jackpot, the payout was the largest it has been since the last jackpot was one.  Unfortunately I wasn't among those who won a prize even though I played 20 lines.  I may only play 10 lines this Monday.

    I noticed the rather large payout this time. I did not win anything but I only played four lines. I will play tonight, and hope for the best. I wish you luck as well. That said, I get the sense that a larger jackpot victory might be coming my way before this month is out. Prisoner of hope, maybe.

            Why do you ask, do I sound/read like a winner?  Like other LP members who have never won a lottery jackpot I get more enjoyment from playing the lotteries than just buying a ticket and hoping to get lucky.

              Merry Christmas to all! It would certainly be nice if one of us could come away with a jackpot win tonight. I am crossing my fingers and hoping that I have the right six numbers to become Ohio's next millionaire.

              Good luck!

                Again Classic Lotto at $17.2M annuity/ $8.3M cash and odds of 1:14M compared with PowerBall at $20.0M annunity/ $10.2M cash and odds of 1:195M, CL is looking good.  MegaMillions at $196.0M/$124.6M is in a class of its own.

                  I've been playing OCL hard last month or so expecting it to get hit every draw.  With players putting $$ on MM OCL may go another draw or two but we all know it's coming.

                    What better way to start the new year than winning Classic Lotto jackpot of $17.6 millions tonight?  It might not look like much next to MegaMillions $290 millions, but the odds of winning it are 13 times better and $8.8M cash could buy a lot of MM tickets for Tuesday's drawing.

                        At 6/49 (~14MM combos), if not for the logistics of filling out all the playslips, you could "buy" a win. LOL

                        In neo-conned Amerika, bank robs you.

                          I just want to say that I won something and I would be very happy with winning this jackpot.

                            Since the OCL cash value is 50% of the jackpot, it will have to reach $28M before anyone trys that.  Besides when the Australia group tried to buy all the possible combinations of the Virgina lottery they needed a crew of several bonded players, three terminals for three 24 hrs days and all their play slips printed up in advance and still only managed to play a little over eight million combinations. No Nod
