The buy 2 get 1 free MM promotion when the OCL is at record levels is a great example of how lotteries use player greed. At what jackpot level do you think OCL fever will finally kick in?

It seems the players in Ohio haven't paid much attention at all to OCL. It's ironic that OCL has caught the attention of many out of staters such as myself.

    Same thing with SuperLotto Plus here in California.  It just chugs along at $2 million rollovers even though it's a $70 million jackpot tonight, so we haven't seen an influx of additional plays yet.  I'm sure more people will now latch onto PB since MM is near reset value than cross over to SLP.

      Sales are only averaging about $300,000 a drawing so maybe only the out of staters are playing.

          I can't believe that people are still falling for the old "send me a wire transfer and your winnings will be sent to your front door " scam. Apparently some TX lady did on the home page today. Ugh! I feel it's greed,personally.

          What kinds of emotions does this evoke from you?

            I spoke too soon.  We had one jackpot winner tonight for SuperLotto Plus.

              Lottery jackpots don't get to $70M without someone's attention.  And they don't get won by those who aren't buying tickets.  The same thing will eventually happen in Ohio.

                  How can a veteran make a blatant NOOB accident like this?

                  I guess every time you gave me five stars for teaching logical lottery winning methods was also a mistake and also an attempt to gormfully indicate that this was probably an accident too?

                  Its a good thing you love one stars. Or else you might burst from frustration.

                  I forgot to put LOL.!!!

                  When you put LOL, your sins are forgiven. ( In case you didn't know.)

                      Trying to get something for nothing, or get something that you are fully aware, that you did not work for, or truly deserve, has an uncanny way of throwing crap on your face, and making you look like a dumba$$. Well deserved indeed.

                          B2b thinks we all still don't know it is him...even after Todd "outed" him. He name called so many people when he was denying it, he still cannot get why everyone is so tired of him.

                          Ladies,  please remember to always stand up for yourselves and your right to say "NO."  Do not allow anyone to denigrate you by saying you must be insecure, etc. for finding your voice.

                            LOL  what are you talking about??

                            Maybe he's talking about reincarnation, in a cyber-way.

                            Scared

                            Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                            Lep

                            There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                              Look at the pot calling the kettle black. Talk about name calling, youve called more names than anybody. As for being tired of someone then why not just ignore someone instead of responding to everything they post regarding you or not.
