If Ohio Classic Lotto continues to roll some players may result to cheating by using prediction software to pick their numbers thus taking advantage of those who chose to play fair by buying auto picks and playing family birthdays.  Speaking only for myself, I would hate to win that way but such desperate action may be necessary. lol

        The lottery gods have been laughing a lot lately so tonight I'm taking matters in my own hands, I can't do any worst.

            Good luck to all LPers playing tonight. I have 5 picks and hope one of us wins it! I want to see tomorrow's headline saying  the winning ticket was sold in Columbus Wink

              I was given the opportunity to gaze into the future and "it will be So! "

              The date of the win was kinda fuzzy though. .but hope remains.

                How could you tell it was the future and not the past?  For the last two years the future and the past for OCL have been the same, it just keeps rolling.

                  ..because l was only GIVEN the opportunity to gaze into the future "after" seeing Drenick1's request. How could I have been looking into the past? As l mentioned, the winning date was fuzzy.l was assured that the winner would be from Columbus nonetheless. ..you are from Columbus- right? 

                  Hope that clears things up RJOH.

                    Lol! I hope your insight into the future does remain true. I still have 6 more draws so one can still have some optimism. Smile

                        About as clear as mud.[lol]  But thanks for trying. I'm a little over an hour drive north of Columbus.

                          I doubt if Ohio has any plans to replace OCL.  Its jackpot does look pretty good now compared to other jackpot games but it took a year for it to get to that point and after it's won it will take another year for it to get to that point again.

                          It probably would sell more tickets if the odds of winning and amounts of its lower tier prizes were like those of MM but I doubt if that will ever happen.

                          A year heck, RJOh!  The last Ohio Classic jackpot win was December 07, 2011!!!  That equates to 2 years, 5 months, and 7 days.  Note that I am not complaining about winning the 70+ million jackpot.  I will humbly accept it and thank everyone who has donated  for the past two and a half years just for me.  It brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it.  Big Smile

                            I'm feeling a jackpot win coming my way!

                            Always! 

                            Did you get an opportunity to pickup some OCL tickets as well? With the cash option being 2.5 times the odds, I still can't believe people are putting their money into PB and MM and ignoring OCL .

                            It seems most Ohioans aren't too bright when it comes to jackpot games. MM would need a prize of over 1.2 billion with a cash option over $650 million to be comparable in terms of odds to payout.
