I live less than 5 miles from the Michigan/Ohio border - I'm in both states nearly every day, but for the most part I only buy lottery tickets in Ohio.

For those of you who track lottery trends across, if you were in that position, which games would you play from which state, and why?

Most of my lottery money right now is going towards Ohio's Classic Lottery, but after that big jackpot goes I'm open to expanding my horizons.  It would be fairly easy for me to buy tickets in both Michigan or Ohio on a regular basis, so I'm curious to hear if anyone has opinions on which are the best options across both states.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

    I'd stick with Ohio cuz Michigan's P5 and P6 and Keno are all computer.

    Ohio's similar games are all real ball drawings except for Ten-Oh.

    But if computers don't matter to you then it don't make no never mind no how unless you find more advantageous matrices and odds in one than the other.

    But me and computers, I'd like to blow they asses all to hell, dadgum straight.

        I've never really played the Pick 3 or Pick 4, but I'm thinking that I might give them a shot.  I've been browsing the forums here, and the results some members get sound intriguing.

         

        In the end, I'll be content if I can find a game and a groove where I break even or come out a little ahead over the long run.  (Don't get me wrong - I wouldn't turn down a big jackpot.  Smile  But I'll be content if I get the excitement of playing without losing my shirt.)

        I just signed up for a 1-month Platinum membership to sort through all the methods for Pick 3 and Pick 4, but I need to wait 24 hours for it to activate.

        You never know...if it looks like it might work out to my benefit, I just might try playing both states.  Its not like I have to go out of my way to buy Michigan tickets.

            I live in Virginia, about 45 minutes from D.C. and about 35 minutes from Maryland. I could easily go to one of those two states to play the lottery.

            I generally play where ... yeah. Faultfinder: D.C. IS NOT A STATE! Me: Oh, be quiet! Neither is Boise!

            I look for patterns for when the numbers win. Take my birthday (Jan. 4) for example. In Virginia, my birthday (1/04) doesn't come up frequently (only 8 times in about 12,500 drawings, or about once in every 1,550 drawings), but it seems to come up at specific times (on Tuesdays; at first in January or March, but more recently in September or October; and on days where the numbers of the day of the month added together to a single number make 2, so the 2nd, 11th, 20th, or 29th). Since this coming September 20 has all of those charateristics, I have already bought tickets for 104 for that day's drawing, and I shall play 104 again on October 11. 

            For D.C., I cannot really discern a pattern for when 104 comes up, but it comes up very frequently compared to other numbers (31 times in approximately 13,500 drawings, or about every 450 drawings). I should consider playing 104 whenever I go into D.C., but I have not done that because I haven't gone into a place where lottery tickets are for sale in DC.

            For Maryland, I cannot figure out a clear pattern regarding when 104 comes up, so I'm not likely to play my birthday in Maryland.

            Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

            In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

              If I recall correctly, it's DC that takes a huge chunk of your lottery winnings for themselves when you win.

              I don't know if it's to pay for their former Mayor's drug rehab or if they're just paying for his crack and hookers outright.

              So keep that in mind when considering DC.

                Marion Barry got tax troubles and he sweats a lot.  This guy is just the tip of the iceberg of what is/was wrong with DC govt..  Not all of it is that bad....... but the politicos guarantee its pathetic record and future performance.  The real magician was Sharon Pratt Kelly she was able to make almost 500 million dollars disappear without a trace.  Nothing to see here wink wink nod nod.

                But you gotta hand it to Barry,  he is a tough guy, 75 years old and still banging.  Who knows,  he may make a comeback.

                Just think if he didn't have those demons........

                  Yeah, the mayor is caught on tape smokin' crack with hookers in a hotel room and what do the DC voters do?

                  Re-elect him, of course!

                  Democrats have such a good sense of humor.

                      "Ohio's similar games are all real ball drawings except for Ten-Oh."

                      I don't like computer drawings either, but if there is an exception, Ten-Oh is one because even if it was a ball drawing, it would take too much time to show it live. The Kicker on Kentucky's Cash Ball tickets might be another example because we can't choose the numbers and get a RNG number for a RNG drawing.
