I just found out the last time the jackpot was won was back on December, 2011. It has now been over 355 draws and this is with 14 million to 1 odds which are better than Mega Millions 2nd place odds of 18 million to 1.

    More players buy MM tickets than buy OCL tickets.  If as many OCL tickets sold as MM, it would be won every month. 

    Ohio added MM and PB to attract more players hoping they would buy more of the local games tickets but most players like to win something even if it isn't the jackpot and winning something is easier playing MM.

        Monday's payout was low so they much not have sold many tickets for the drawing.

          This weekend OCL will have the largest jackpot in the country and the best odds of the top three. Big Smile

            Everybody who lives within an hour of any Ohio's border points should be playing OCL. The jp is more than twice the odds of hitting the jp. It makes it the ideal hand to play. I wish you LP players who are trying all the best.

            That money's gone fo ever

              I Agree! OCL has the largest jackpot in the states and the odds are better than MM 2nd tier prize. Still can't figure why people in Ohio and neighboring states are wasting their money on MM and ignoring OCL.Bash 

              Good luck to LP members who are playing OCL!

                Most neighboring states have their own 6/48-49 game which will have a decent jackpot sooner of later so unless someone has a particular good 6/49 system they want to try they probably aren't going to travel more than twenty miles to try it.  Besides states added PB and MM to keep players' interest local and it seems to be working. 

                I know I use to travel out of state to play but I doubt if I will ever do it again for any size jackpot.

                    You may get your wish if no one wins it in the next ten drawings, you can come back and buy some more tickets.

                      I might just have to do that although it may be more convenient to have my aunt send me the ticket.

                        It's always more convenient to have someone else pick up your tickets until you win big, then it's settling on a fair amount of compensation for that convenient that's inconvenient.

                          So true! I am just glad that my aunt and I are extremely close so I doubt there would be any static if I were lucky.

                            With roughly 360 draws since someone last won the Ohio Classic Lotto, I think it's about time that someone gets lucky! I have 9 drawings left so it would be very nice if it was me or someone from the forum.

                            I probably won't get excited unless they mention that the winning ticket was purchased at a service/rest area along the Ohio turnpike.Wink

                              $66 million ($33 million cash) and still going. I have eight more draws so here's wishing some luck to me and the other forum members participating. Cheers
