    Birthday numbers only cover 736,281 of the possible 13,983,816 combinations using all 49 numbers.  Up to now only 53 of the 1135 winning combinations have had all birthday numbers and 2 had no birthday numbers at all.

        "Up to now only 53 of the 1135 winning combinations have had all birthday numbers..."

        Exactly.

        And soon it will be 54.

        So let it be written.

        So let it be done.

          About 1 in 20 combinations will have all birthday numbers which means such combinations only have a shot as winning the jackpot about 8 times yearly.

            When I have more cash to spend I'll be playing 28 number full wheels whenever I can. Even I dont win the current JP I can live off a smaller JP. Just as long as I can live off the intrest and never work again.

              I have the cash to buy more tickets only because I haven't spent it doing that.  Once I spend it buying more tickets and don't win anything I won't be able to buy my usual amount of tickets.

              The last drawing I picked 25 combinations to play and only played the first ten.  Had I played all 25 lines I would have matched 3 for $2.  I'm glad I didn't buy the extra 15 lines for and extra $15 to win $2.

                Yea I've had a lot of tickets like thatBig Grin Needless to say I've pulled back since the past. But I might be making a little bit more money soon so dropping 28 bucks every few weeks wont be at any loss. Then maybe I can win the classic, everybody at my previous job always played the Mega or PB pools.

                    Unless you were lucky to win the current OCL jackpot of $68 million and netting about $19 million after ALL taxes are deducted, forget about living off the interest of a smaller OCL jackpot as it starts as a $1 million annuity which would offer a cash option of about $300k after taxes.

                    Interest on the $19 million at today's rate would bring you about $80k per year. Interest on the starting jackpot cash option of $300k would support your lifestyle with about $120 in interest per month...not exactly enough to retire on.

                      The last time the Ohio Lottery jackpot was won was back on December 7 2011 when one ticket matched the six main numbers to win a jackpot worth $2.7 million.

                      Folks have won MM & PB jackpots with greater odds since 2011- whats the deal with the OCL? Perhaps Ohioans have given up trying- what be your theory apart from" They have not figured out the right combination yet!

                      Maybe the so called "proprietary" fracking fluids that are possibly leaching into the drinking water of free landowners, and poisioning their virgin minds,  have caused the generally logical ability of those Ohio citizens to worsen?

                      There is really IMO, no such thing as a right combination, especially when often the left combination does just fine!
