    It still hasn't landed for anyone as it continues to roll.

      I just roiled to play my picks for tonight. The OCL is probably going to starting drawing more attention now the JP is getting big.

        Judging from the payout amounts after each drawing, OCL has as much attention as it has ever gotten and I think it has peaked.  With the buy two get one free promotion Ohio has for MegaMillions tickets now that it has reset, regular OCL players may be buying more MM tickets instead.

          Looks like Ohio is continuing this promotion in June.  Good news is with practice OCL may get easier to win, at least I hope so.  I found something new to try.

              After almost two and a half years with no winner, I would be relieved to see ANY combination of numbers hit. One of my self picks has our birthdays along with our age so I'm hoping that will the "magic  combination" Wink

                  At this point....Trying any numbers could not hurt not after so many years of not being won.

                  California has this thing with " Lady luck being out there all decked out and showing up to be in your corner" she wants you to hit it, and hit it good. Very seductive mind you, she looks good enough to eat- I guess that's the whole point. No too long ago there was this woman who won some serous cash using the numbers she found in a fortune cookie... Maybe that's it: the OCL could be won with fortune cookie numbers!

                    No.  Ohio has a MegaMillions promotion spent two get one free which price MM tickets at $0.67 each, maybe I'll buy a few of them.

                      Does anyone know what the longest number of consecutive draws without a jackpot winner is?  For a game with similar odds (6/49) or harder.  Is it OCL?

                        At three drawings per week, my guess is that there has been approximately 380 consecutive draws without a winner. I don't really follow most other games but I think it's safe to say that OCL has the longest streak period. Most other large jackpot games have two draws per week so it have taken almost 4 years to accomplish the same dissapointment.

                          It would be nice if someone from LP won it.

                            Ohio's Lot'O Play the game that OCL replaced never had a winner but it only ran about a year.  It's last game was its best game because it still didn't have a winner so all the accumulated funds for the jackpot was divided among all the lower tier winners.  I brought three $2 tickets and won almost a hundred dollars.
