The Hoosier Lotto jackpot is at $30,000,000 and on Wednesday I'm gonna win it!Big Grin

The odds of winning Hoosier Lotto is 1 in 12,271,512. That's way better than both Powerball and Mega Millions.

    Last month, Ohio Classic Lotto jackpot exceeded $50,000,000 with odds of 1 in 13,983,816 of winning it.  I played 10-20 lines regularly for two months before it was finally won and the best I ever did was a few match3's for $2 each. 

    For the new year, I decided to test what I thought were some improvements to my system and played the 10 lines I posted on the prediction board on 01/02/2012 and matched 4 for $70.  Now that PowerBall prices have increased, I will start playing OCL instead of PB when its jackpot exceeds $5M.  Any way I won't be playing PB again as long as I can play MM for $1 a line unless  its jackpot exceeds $300M.

      Until PB reaches $200M I'll be playing $5 per draw on Hoosier Lotto. After PB reaches $200M, I'll buy $3 on Hoosier Lotto and a single PB with Powerplay ticket for $3. I don't play MM that much. Sometimes I'll play $1 or $2 on it if it's below $100M. After that I'll start playing $5. I love when the state Lotto game gets up this high. I realize 1 in 12,271,512 is still a lot of combinations, but it's still way better than PB or MM. Plus, all the numbers are in the same pool so I can apply my system to every number. That alone makes it a lot easier.

        You guys are lucky you have options.

        All TN has is a pari-mutuel 5 + 1 game called TN Cash that doesn't pay diddly squat. Nobody plays it. Sucks.

                Hoosier Lotto is now $31,000,000 which equates to $1,033,333 before taxes every year for 30 years. I am very enticed to take the annuity when I win this jackpot on Wednesday.Big Grin

                    I see that the Indiana lottory uses RNG to determine the winning numbers.  No wonder the jackpot is so high.

                      Ohio uses balls and its jackpot was over $50M two months ago.  Picking the winning combination when there are over 10 millions possible is hard no matter how they pick 'em.

                        I don't think it's so high because it uses an RNG. Even if 2 million tickets are sold, that's still only 16.3% of all possible combinations. That's also not taking into account that 2 million tickets sold probably isn't actually 16.3% because there will also be duplicates of the same combination sold. I think when it got to over $50M a few years ago, it might have barely made it over a million tickets sold. Mathematically speaking, the odds are that the jackpot will roll.

                          On Wednesday I played $5 of system picks and $10 of quick picks. The last line on my ticket matched 4/6 and won $39(4/6 and 5/6 are pari-mutuel). I recently made changes to my system so get ready for the big hit!Big Grin

                            Do your system picks depend on your quick picks or are they independent of each other?

                              Independent. I recently came up with 2 more filters and have been playing with just those 2 for the last 2 drawings, just so I can test them out. With just those 2 filters applied my odds for a single line has been chopped down to about 1 in 1,650,000. So for a $5 ticket using those 2 filters, I'm looking at about 1 in 330,000 to win the jackpot. Not exactly the best odds, but still way better than 1 in 12,271,512, and for a jackpot game, that's pretty darn good. The odds should get even better when I add my other filters back in. One of these new filters is geared more towards matching 4/6 or better, whereas all my other filters are geared towards 6/6 specifically. I figured that adding a filter like this would help in the long run because the 4/6 prize is approximately $40, so if I hit 4/6 more often, I can turn around and take that $40 and play 40 lines of system picks, resulting in even better odds of hitting the jackpot the next drawing.
