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.

For the same reasons I haven't tried to pick 6  numbers with all six winning numbers, the bigger the pool the more likely it has all six winning numbers.  I'm working on some strategies to reduce the number pool size and still have all the winning numbers a good percent of the time.

Now that RC5 is $404K, I may give it a try.  It being a daily game does give me much time to evaluate it 2821 previous drawing before picking some lines to play.

Good luck to anyone trying to win the Classic Lotto, somebody going to win it sooner or later.

    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.

        Today Classic Lotto will have to take a back seat to Rolling Cash5(5/39) which has a jackpot of $640K.  It's not often you have a chance to play for a jackpot that's worth more than the cost of all its possible combinations.

          MegaMillions may have to take a back seat to RC5 also as it continues to roll to a $720K jackpot.  Someone could buy all the combinations and still clear almost $175K if they were the only winner.

            I am specially good at dealing 15 numbers to 20 tickets with possible best outcome.

            so I PREFER to use 18 numbers or even less.

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

                    The payout would only be $579,600 though, after mandatory withholding.

                    Don't get me wrong, I'd be thrilled to get a check for $579,600!  But it's not clearing $300K above the 575K number combinations.

                    You also run the risk of having to split the jackpot.  With so many tickets being sold, I wouldn't be surprised if there was more than one winner.  Have you seen how the per drawing payouts have increased as the jackpot grew?  Definitely a lot of tickets being sold!

                    Is this a record for the jackpot?  I don't ever recall seeing it get that high since I've been paying attention.

                      I was assuming a winner would be deducting the cost of his tickets when he filed his taxes probably getting a refund since he would only be paying taxes on his profits.

                      If the $840K wasn't a record jackpot then the new amount of $963K probably is.

                        Good point.  It probably would still be risky, if there were multiple winners and a split jackpot.  If I had $575K available to buy tickets, I'm not sure I'd be comfortable taking that risk!

                        I would agree that the $963K must be a record.  Think it will go tonight?

                          $575 isn't a risk I would take either but then I wouldn't have risked $300K playing that Massachusetts Windfall game before it ended as that Michigan couple was doing either and making a profit.  $20-$30 is the limit for my risk taking.

                          I'm playing 20 lines and hoping I do better than a match2 or 3 as I've done in the last 4 drawings.  I hope someone wins it even if it's not me so I can get back to picking 10 lines for PowerBall this week end.

                            Now that RC5 has reset to its normal jackpot range of $100K-$200K, Classic Lotto with its $20M jackpot can claim once again the best odds of winning a Lot'O money on Monday night.
