With MM jackpot set to $12.0M and PB jackpot at $35.0M, OCL at $20.9M is looking good again.  I picked some numbers for tonight's drawing but didn't feel like driving through all the snow to play them, good thing too because I would have lost $10.  Come Saturday I'll have an extra $10 to spend on tickets.

    Do you choose your own numbers or go with quick picks? Two weeks ago, I had four of the 6 numbers and was 1 off on another. I think Saturday is my night.

      I always pick my own numbers in a random fashion, that way when I lose I can say "I did it my way".

          if someone won and claimed the prize publicly, they will get at least 5 or 6 marriage proposals in one day

            Maybe if they are young and single.  I think those marrying for money would want a MM or PB winner.

              I can't figure, there were 440 OCL predictions on the prediction page and with overall odds of 1:54 of having a winning ticket there were only 3 winning tickets and they were only matched 3's.   This OCL jackpot could roll a long time before anyone wins it.  Oh well, there's PB and if OCL hasn't been hit by next Monday, maybe I will play it again then.

                I am trying to win. The closest I've gotten is 4 out of 6. I do better when I play my own numbers but for some reason will go with quick picks after some of my numbers come up a lot, which is often.

                 Last year, when it got up to $20 something million, I had the numbers 2, 10, 32, 35, 41, and 48 to play. I was living in Michigan at the time and drove to Toledo to play. I wanted to play that number but also get multiple plays on it. The young lady at a place called Frickers said she didn't know how to do it and that she was only familiar with running the Keno game. She said her manager would know but the manager was not there. Well, I just told her to give me a quick pick for 4 draws. So, I left and went back home. I checked the numbers the next day and the winning numbers were 2, 10, 32, 35, 41, and 48. It was the closest I had ever got to winning. Needless to say, I was not a very happy person.

                Edit: I should make note of the fact that they did not have any playslips out for me to write down my own number and choose the multidraw option.

                  Before MM and PB came to Ohio I drove to Michigan to play BigGame and Indiana to play PB but I always kept a stash of play slips for each game at home and filled them out before making the drive.  I still do that even though I now play them locally.

                    I never needed a jackpot win more than I do right now. OCL or PB, does not matter. I will trust the Lord!

                      I see the OCL jackpot rolled to $22.5M tonight, if I don't win the PB jackpot tonight then I will start picking some combinations to play for the Monday's OCL drawing.  Good luck if you play.

                        I've been playing 1-2$ per draw since the jp hit 17M. Hopefully someone hits so i can focus on MM/PB.

                            I played 20 lines from 83 that I picked and only got a 3/6 for $2, but I did notice the 83 lines had a 4/6 that I rejected so maybe I will adjust my reject rules and try again next Monday if no one wins by then.  On Wednesdays and Saturdays I will be playing PowerBall as long its jackpot continues to roll.  Twenty lines three times a week is about as far as I wish to stress my lottery budget.
