My state lottery had a lotto promo that ran from 1/15-2/15 where if you purchased three lines on one ticket you would win one free ticket. Now from when this promo started and until it ended the jackpot wasn't won until 2/15 which was the last day for this promo. To me this looks like it already predetermined when the winning numbers would be drawn, and to let the promo go so long to build the jackpot prize.

    That is Interesting I was wondering do other States have Promotions or win extra Bucks, like Ohio If you get the Red Ball you win extra money, if you get the white Ball nothing. And it is only affective untill March after March its over.

      If you feel that way, just think how the winner must feel.  He/she having to explain to all the jealous losers why they were allowed to win.  That's something they didn't bargain for when they bought their tickets.

        The payout distribution might not be okay.

          it could be they left it to luck, untill the last drawm and kept drawing  untill a winner was found.  i mean a    barrel draw may do that, not a lotto one.

          2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016 JAN = -106; FEB= -81; MAR= -131; APR= - 87: MAY= -91; JUN= -39; JUL=-134; AUG= -124; SEP = -123; OCT= -84  NOV=- 73 TOT= -3498

          keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= JAN=-32, FEB= +12 , MAR= -86, APR = -77. MAY= -48, JUN= -29, JUL=-71; AUG = -52; SEPT= -43; OCT = +56 NOV = -33 TOT= -3297

            Classic Lotto has been known to go for months without a hit. It is that hard to hit. Also it says on the website that it was hit on 02/15/2013.

            That money's gone fo ever

                Classic Lotto in Ohio went almost two years without a winner and then had two winners in the following month.

                  I know man, I think the latest pot has been running for more than 6 months. The only thing I dislike about these 6/49 Lotto games is the second prizes. They are not very encouraging. Good luck Thumbs Up

                    Was this a computerized draw?

                    This is one thing I don't like about computerized draws. "They" have the control on determining winners with a simple keystroke.
