I would only play MM and focus on it, but you probably can't skip your local game.

    I was forced to skip playing Saturday because all the lottery terminals in town went down a couple hours before the cut-off time which is the time I like to buy my tickets.  I survived that and saved some money too so it won't be hard skipping tonight's drawing if it means I can buy more MM tickets for tomorrow drawing and stay within my usual spending habits.

    I'm thinking it could be another month or two before I have another chance to buy tickets for a jackpot this size after tomorrow.

      I suggest that you get some account for online play, when terminals are down you might still play up to last minute.

        Ohio doesn't have such things and I'm not willing to pay more than the price of a ticket to play.  Besides most of these online places not only charge 2-3 times the price of a ticket to play but they have cut-off times earlier than the states.  It really doesn't bother me if the terminals are off line occasionally.

          Feeling lucky cost me an extra ten bucks last night, this Saturday I'll just be playing my regular amount.

          Yep, been there, done that.  I'm sure that "lucky" feeling will hit me again and I'll spend some extra $$.  It certainly is frustrating at times.

          I just took a 10 day hiatus from looking at the numbers.  I was really getting frustrated with the lack of any success, so it was time to take a break.  I am off for a couple of weeks for the holidays, so I will get back into it then as I am feeling refreshed.

            I truly believe I will win the Ohio Classic Lotto Jackpot. Everyone does or hopes they win but this is a true gut feeling. It is just a matter of when I play it.

            Do you have a system or just a set of lucky numbers or are you using QP's?

              I too stop playing Classic Lotto for a couple of draws but only to play MM instead.  Now that MM's jackpot has been won, I'm back on my main mission of trying to do what I failed to do back in February when I matched 5of6 in OCL.

                Wow. Wished this game existed in California. The odds are pretty <snip> good.

                  Doesn't California have its own Super Lotto Game?  The grass always seems greener somewhere else.

                    Winning tonight's Ohio's Classic Lotto could still be classified as a Christmas gift and at $55.6M/$27.8M cash what a gift.

                    Good luck if you're playing and Merry Christmas. Big Grin Santa

                        Ohio started the year 2013 with a Classic Lotto jackpot worth $25.1M/$12.1M cash and if there's no winner Monday, it will end the year having no winner and a jackpot that rolled up to $56.3M/$28.1M cash.

                        I plan to buy ten lines trying to stop that from happening.  Good luck if you're trying too.

                          I was looking at worldwide jackpots and this Ohio jackpot is right there at #3.  What stuck me was that it rolls over by only ~$300,000 at a time, so I looked at the jackpot history. I'm amazed that no one won last year and has been rolling over for so long.  I might ask my buddy in Ohio buy me a line or two.

                            You are in luck because Ohio has drawings for two games tonight that have jackpots worth more than the price of tickets for all the possible combinations.  Classic Lotto at $56.8M/$28.4M cash with odds of 1:14M and Rolling Cash5 at $655K with odds of 1:575,757.

                            Your buddy will probably be picking up some tickets for himself and if either of you won big you'll find out just how much of a buddy he/she is.  Good luck.
