      I don't play in my state though (TN).

      I don't like the fake computer drawings.

      I drive to Virginia.

        State lottos generally have a smaller pool of numbers (In California, SuperLotto is 1-47 vs Mega Millions' 1-56) so odds are better. Of course, I'd rather win a 5+0 in MM which is usually at least a 6 figure jackpot

                For the JP state naturally.

                No matter the game the most common result is you will hit the amount of numbers that do not pay anything, in a Pick 5, 0 or 1, in a Pick 6, 0, 1 or 2, etc......

                Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                Lep

                There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                  No question, the state games have the best odds of winning a jackpot but if winning smaller prizes more often is fun PowerBall beats them all.  Just look at their overall odds of winning a prize.

                    thanks,rjoh your info makes mine look like nj. LOL

                    anyway i see that oh. state game has same odds.

                    nj. has a tendency to not hit til it exceeds 6m. or higher

                    i suspect thats account of ppl. not buying tics. til. it gets up there.

                    wonder if you notice same.

                      Ohio Classic Lotto last two wins were within one draw of each other.  The first one was after almost two years without a winner.   The first jackpot was for over $50M and the second one was for $1M.  The payouts per drawings doesn't vary very much because of some faithful players who prefer the better odds of winning a jackpot that continue to play regardless of the jackpot size.

                        yes,i think i prefer the smaller,easier to win,lower profile jp,

                        2y w/no winner is amazing,now i'm thinking the second one hit,

                        cause ppl. were payin more attention after,the big win

                        how often is ocl drawn ?

                          I play both but i'm not wild about the fact that the la state lotto numbers are picked and noone gets to watch it happen. I guess they do it by computer. Then I can never find info on who won it and which city they were in. Kinda fishy to me. Someone in New Orleans won $97 on the PB not too long ago and never claimed the $$$. That was also weird to me. I would love to know where that $97 million ended up? I hope they aren't scamming people.Evil Looking

                            I play both but i'm not wild about the fact that the la state lotto numbers are picked and noone gets to watch it happen. I guess they do it by computer. Then I can never find info on who won it and which city they were in. Kinda fishy to me. Someone in New Orleans won $97 on the PB not too long ago and never claimed the $$$. That was also weird to me. I would love to know where that $97 million ended up? I hope they aren't scamming people.Evil Looking

                              yes,i think i prefer the smaller,easier to win,lower profile jp,

                              2y w/no winner is amazing,now i'm thinking the second one hit,

                              cause ppl. were payin more attention after,the big win

                              how often is ocl drawn ?

                              OCL drawings are held on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
