How long has it been since this game has been won?  It has to be well over a year.  The odds of winning are 1 in about 14m and the cash option is over $30m now.  (I am not sure how Ohio figures their cash option.  There is no way they could invest with today's rates and make that money in 30 years).  If I won this I might actually take the annuity because of the good return it offers.  Any Ohio people out there that can buy me some advanced tickets?  lol

    Ohio doesn't do much figuring when it comes to its cash options, it simply divide the jackpot amount by two.  It's easier than figuring the constantly changing annuity amounts which would always be higher than 50% thus making it hard for a winner to match the 30 year payout by taking the cash and investing it.

    Being from Michigan, it just a trip to the border if you're really interested in buying some OCL tickets, I use to travel to Michigan for MM tickets as did a lot of other Ohioians before they were sold in Ohio.

      Ohio Classic Lotto continues to roll with its largest pay-out since the beginning of last month so you out of staters still have a chance to travel to Ohio to pick up some tickets for a $62M jackpot with the best odds of winning in the country. 

      Locals don't seem to be able to come up with right combination, maybe one of you can.

        To win you need to play much more than ten combinations. It simply is out of your financial range. A quickpick can do it too.

          Regardless of the number or combinations I play, only one can ever have all six winning numbers.  Playing ten gives me ten chances to get it right which is better than none and still within my budget.  Last year I got 5of6 with only 10 lines which was only one short of having all six.

                  Hard to believe there hasn't been a winner in so long!

                    It's not the first time the jackpot has reached this level because of going so long without a winner which kinda proves there is no guaranteed system for winning a 6/49 lottery other than playing every possible combination.

                    I've developed the best affordable system I've ever seen and the best I've ever done is match 5of6.Wink

                        Not that it matters but there are usually fewer OCL players for the Monday drawing than any other day.

                            I need to take a road trip to Ohio and get a months worth of draws. Someone has got to hit it soon as it's been like two years now.

                              Is Atlantic Mine near Houghton in the U.P.? if so, I can see why you don't want to make the drive to Ohio as it's about 600 miles even though it borders to Michigan.
