RJOH,

Can feel the frustration as LP is showing the Ohio Classic Lotto jackpot is now over $72M. Here in NJ our Pick 6 game has not had a winner since December 2013 and the jackpot here is only over $18M. Our Pick 5 is nearing a million but that game will eventually have a hit soon, as it usually does. 

For me trying, too hard to win is a losing proposition. Know if I stop focusing on a particular game; it will get a hit. Think I'll continue with quick picks and some family birthday numbers. 

Maybe the strategy of buying some Pick 6 tickets and sticking in them in a draw and not checking them for a month might prove a better idea. 

Hope you have a winner soon in Ohio. Hope will keep it alive.

    It's really not frustrating since I'm not likely to win when it's finally won.  Each times it rolls I get another chance and just maybe I'll get a little luckier than I was in February of 2013 when I predicted and matched a 5of6.  I've come close twice. Hope is alive as long as it's rolling.  It's never over until it's over and etc.

      I'm thinking about reducing my number pool down to 18 numbers for tonight's drawing partly based on a suggestion by a LP member who hasn't post anything for a while.  If I win the jackpot tonight, he can expect me to seek him out and reward him for his idea.   Maybe he won a big jackpot and simply lost interest in posting.

        There were 180 OCL predictions on the prediction board for tonight's drawing and not even one matched 3of6 which has odds of 1:56 of happening.  Talk about difficult, I've never seen the board do that bad.

          I had a pretty good ticket in the last few draws, no dice though. I'm still hopefully optimistic about winning any draw.

              There was a 4+0 on the prediction board last night for the MegaMillions drawing, seems like the board is recovering from its bad performance on Monday's OCL predictions.

                OCL now has the biggest jackpot of any U.S. based lottery game.  Go get em'.

                  It has been there before but with Ohio's MM promotion of buy 2 get 1 free, Ohio will probably sell more MM tickets than OCL tickets this week-end.

                    Ohio is selling more than twice as many MM tickets as OCL tickets and from what I have observed many players aren't buying their MM tickets after 7:30PM on draw night to take advantage of the buy 2 get 1 free promotion.

                      There must be something in the air on Friday the 13th... both EuroMillions and Mega Millions had jackpot winners tonight and are reset.

                      Nothing is close in terms of jackpot size to OCL in the world, presently.  Crazy!

                        With all three world largest jackpot producing lotteries resetting this week, it's time someone came up with a combination that can do the same for Ohio's Classic Lotto.  With the world's largest jackpot worth more than twice the cost to buy every possible combination, it hard to believe it hasn't been the victim of some big spender scheme.  I will be playing an extra line or two in tonight's drawing and hoping to get lucky.
