Ditto! Wink

It's a week later and the jackpot is now $19.4M/$9.7M.  Ohio is advertising OCL as having the best odds for winning a big jackpot.  I haven't checked the other jackpots around the country so I'm taking their words for it and playing again tonight.

RJOhOhioClassic Lotto4 of 612-14-18-24-33-4004-12-14-20-33-40$100

 

Didn't win the jackpot but things are looking better.  The above is from the prediction result page.  Actually Ohio only pays $70 for a 4of6.

    If you would like to backtest a system of 24 nrs with only 18-24 tickets let me know which numbers you'd like to wheel. I'll copy & paste the results here.

      I play at least one line every drawing on Classic Lotto.  (Have to be in to win, right?)

      However, I like the Rolling Cash 5 better.  At least it pays out more when you only match a few numbers.  I hit for $10 at least once a week.  Not a lot of money, but at least it's something to keep playing on.

      Last year, when the Classic Lotto jackpot was really high, I played it regularly & didn't get very far.  Won $70 twice, and a handful of $2 prizes.

      Tonight's Rolling Cash 5 jackpot is $330,000, so I'm definitely getting tickets for that.  Already have my Classic Lotto ticket for tomorrow.

        What?  Thanks for the offer but I don't understand how wheeling numbers would backtest a system.

          I plan on playing 10 lines of RC5 too tonight, didn't get around to playing it the last time it was over $300K

            03 - 05 - 07 - 08 - 11 -12 - 14 - 16 - 17 - 20 - 21 - 23 -25 - 26 - 29 - 30 - 32 -34 - 35 - 38 - 39 - 41 - 43 - 48

            24 random numbers, for example.

            Wheeling the above 24 numbers - and considering the first number which is "3" as our key number - we have 3 rows of 12 numbers which are...

            01=03,07,11,14,17,21,25,29,32,35,39,43

            02=03,05,11,12,17,20,25,26,32,34,39,41

            03=03,07,08,14,16,21,23,29,30,35,38,43,48

            If the 6 winning numbers are within our 24 numbers and the first number is "3" = 100% success for 4/6. Each row of 12 numbers can be also wheeled but you get the idea.

             

            Perhaps earlier I didn't expressed myself correctly.

            Just an example; not a suggestion of which numbers to play or anything else.

             

            All The Best.

              I understand wheeling, I've even got a copy of CoverMaster.  I just can't see how wheeling some numbers would back test a system.

              I never cared for wheeling because for more than 15 number it's over kill to match 2 or 3 numbers which usually pays nothing and for less than 15 you just make up a few combinations using them you'll likely have everything covered.

                I learned something tonight I didn't know.  When I went to post my RC5 predictions on the prediction board at 6:00 pm, it was close because those drawing happens at 7:00 which I thought happened at 6:30 pm.   Sure enough I checked the Ohio website and it said the same thing.  Since they show the results at the same time as Pick3/4/5 , I thought the drawings were at the same time too.

                Live and learn.

                  Nobody won RC5 tonight so it's $383K tomorrow.  I'll be giving OCL another try since I only won $1 for 20 lines on RC5 tonight.

                    Yeah, they changed the RC5 drawing time when the Pick 5 was added.  Now the live nightly televised drawings are the Pick 3/4/5, with the RC5 and OCL earlier.

                    I had to get used to that, because I was used to being able to run out at the last minute if I wanted another RC5 ticket.

                    $383K tonight...that would be a nice chunk of change, even after taxes.

                    I'll play both games tonight, but probably more RC5.

                      Now that MegaMillions jackpot is $12.0M/$9.0M and Classic Lotto is $19.7/$9.9M, OCL should give MM some serious competition for the next couple of drawings especially with 12x better odds of winning an equal size jackpot.  Good luck if you're playing.

                        My 4of6 win last Saturday was in spite of my system.  I think I discovered a flaw which I corrected so I'm expecting equal or better results for this Saturday drawing.  Good luck if you're playing too.

                          As witnessed on the prediction board, my system failed.  I only had one of the winning numbers in 10 lines which included 28 numbers.  The jackpot grew to $20M/$10M cash so I'm in again this Monday.  Good luck if you're playing.

                            I played last Monday and didn't do any better.  Played PB the rest of the week and got a 3+0 Saturday.  Getting an itch to try OCL again.  Monday seems to becoming my day to play OCL.  Good luck to anyone else who's doing the same.

                              Why not secoure 17 Numbers that got all 6 winning numbers first than a large pool pf 28 numbers?If you wish only 10 lines results a surprising resut.

                              Strive to predict 8 tickets for 12 numbers with Max ROI for Pick6!
