Sounds like you are not completely convinced, you might buy a ticket or two if you found yourself at that vendor. Wink

If Ohio was just 21 miles away from me I would have no issues making the trip and not having to burden on my aunt to send them to me.

    Wow Drenick1- we have a fellow member who made a 200 mile round trip to purchase his tickets- his name escapes me. l guess you not that desperate at present huh?

      Absolutely I would buy a ticket or two or even more if I was there.  I have bought several tickets on the Classic over the last few years when I happen to be in Ohio. 

      I just see no reason to drive 42 miles on a special trip for a ticket now it was different when we didn't have the MM or the Big Game as it used to be.  When those jackpots were high I would drive across the line!

        I can understand that.  I have just never done well on the Ohio Classic and last summer I won $5 on it and I never made it back in time to cash in the ticket.  When I finally got back to Ohio they said it was expired!  Darn!

          Don't feel bad, haven gone a couple of years without a winner means a lot of players haven't done well.  I got close last year with a 5of6 for $1500 but the rest of the time those hard to come by $2 prizes for 3of6 sucked.  As usually I'll be playing and hoping to get lucky again tonight.

            I wish both you and Drenick1 good luck tonight in the drawing.  And all the rest of you that are playing the Ohio Classic!!  Who knows if no one wins I may just take that 21 mile journey this weekend.

                I visited my aunt in Ohio early last month and bought 10 draws which was the max available. I hit 3 of 6 on two separate occasions...woohoo! but like Rjoh I'm chasing this one until it's hit. I just have to rely on having my aunt getting my tickets. It would make my day if the winning ticket was sold in Columbus Wink

                    If someone from LP happens to win the OCL then so be it. I hope it's me but I would also be pleased if a fellow LP member got lucky.

                      Where are the complaints coming from?  As long as it continues to roll players can still buy a ticket and dream of getting lucky and winning it.

                            If they're complaining, all they have is themselves to blame.  It's not like the odds are getting tougher...

                              Try telling that to those who have matched 5of6 who never even matched a 4of6 after continuing to do the samething.
