I just noticed the Classic Lotto is near the top of the Top 10 List, just behind MM/PB.....

What makes them the greatest state run game in the country?

      Yeah, certainly the highest.(if not the greatest) Crazy that it has rolled that many times, I don't know how much, it's off the chart, but way more than 150 rolls.

      The closest thing we have in CA is our awful game Daily Derby game. On the previous run before this one, it went more than 110 rolls before it hit. It is similar to OH Lotto in that sales are only enough to offer a few percent possibility of jackpot being hit, so it can roll for a loooong time. Daily Derby only has 30k-40k sales each draw, OH Lotto looks like around 300-400k.

      Still, even if you played all 13.9M combinations, the cash value after taxes would only be around $13M anyway, and then you take the chance of someone else coming along with the same numbers, and you'd end up losing half of that.

      Wonder how much longer it will go on.

        Ohio's Classic Lotto(6/49) has gone longer without a hit.  Last year it rolled up a jackpot of over $50M before it was hit and a week or two later at $1M+ was hit again so the next win can happen any time.

        Many states in the area have similiar state games that roll up similar jackpots.

              Many states already have a game with similar odds and prize levels, they are just hoping the players attracted by the large jackpots of MM and PB will notice.
