    I am optimizing my expected return and purchasing 6,650,908 quick picks for tomorrow's drawing.

    If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
    If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

      You must be new here to expect anyone to believe that crap.  Last year LP news had a story about the Michigan couple who went to Massachusetts to take advantage of their WindFall game roll down by buying over 300,000 quick picks which to do they had to take over the terminals at two different stores for two days. By yourself, you couldn't buy that many quick picks if you stood at a terminal all week.

        Yes, it was a tongue in cheek attempt at sarcasm Smile

        If one desired to maximize their expected winnings and minimize the number of duplicate tickets for Classic that is the number of quick picks they would need to purchase. Personally I would never attempt to purchase that many by myself. Terminals here have a cutoff of $5,000 per hour so I would hire a crew.

          The last time something like that was seriously tried was in Virginia over twenty years ago by an Australian group.  They made out play slips and took over three Seven Eleven store terminals for three days.  They managed to buy over eight millions lines which did include the jackpot winning combinations but afterwards most states put in places rules which should prevent that ever happening again.

          Now days schemes to win a lottery jackpots are smaller and require less money of which I haven't heard of any lately.

              Either that or they don't spend enough money to attract attention.  The Michigan couple in Massachusetts spent over $150K in two days in stores that normal did only a few hundred dollars of business in a week.

                  Can math and logic improve chances of winning a jackpot?

                  I for one say YES................

                  Total Games to Date     = 1,038

                  Odds of winning 5 of 6 = 1 : 54,201

                  Odds of winning 4 of 6 = 1 : 1,032

                  Lets look at my Combinations & Patterns of the OHIO Classic Game - Go To -  https://app.box.com/shared/5vms79dzu0

                  I have 211 Groups which are made up of 664 drawings of the total 1,038 drawings to date or 63.97% of the total drawings.

                  7 of these Groups - 7, 9, 14, 29, 62, 103, & 211 had matched 5 of 6 TWICE

                  1 of these Groups - 73 had matched 5 of 6 THREE times.

                  The remaining 647 drawings (664 - 14 - 3 = 647) all matched 4 of 6 at least TWICE.

                  The Bottom line is - if you didn't match 4 of 6 numbers in one of my 211 groups; your chances of winning 4 of 6 are 36.03% (100% - 63.97% = 36.03%).  If you look at the math (%) & the logic (past history of the Game); you will have to admit that math & logic does improve your chances of winning the game.  All I can do is give you is the combinations of numbers.  I cannot tell you when a combination will hit.  If I could tell you, you would not be reading this as I would be on a vacation in the Bahamas...........................................

                  Good Luck & Best Wishes To ALL.......................

                  By the way - here is last night's drawing in my Group 211.

                    I have always liked the theory that all numbers will come out overtime, the probabilty of odds, "they all will jump out sooner or later"..Stretch

                          Could have been more, but the limit is ten combinations.

                            Playing more than ten combinations is a waste of money, I came close to hooking the big one with ten combinations back on February 25, 2013 with a 5of6.

                              Yes Math and Logic can Improve the Chances of Winning a Jackpot!

                              Its no different than a sport you Practice or game such as Poker...Strategy is Key!

                              *Math/Logic allows you narrow down odds when playing any game!

                              People often want the formula,but the truth is Hard work and Faith will do it....

                              I hit 3 and 4 out of 5 in Fantasy 5 all the time, seldom play Jackpots because

                              I know how they are selected ;)
