Ohio Classic Lotto Strategies

### About Ohio Classic Lotto Game

On January 22, 2007, Ohio started the Classic Lotto game, a 6/49 lotto game. The player chooses six numbers from 1 to 49 to play the game. Each play costs \$1. The game draws 3 times per week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays.

The odds of winning the first prize jackpot are one in 13,983,816 —great odds when compared to Mega Millions jackpot odds of one in 302,575,350 or Powerball odds of one in 292 million. However, with odds of one in 575,757, Ohio Rolling Cash 5 is the best game to play in Ohio.

Lottery numbers are randomly drawn. But randomly drawn numbers form patterns that can be tracked and used to our advantage. Having carefully analyzed all the drawings in past lotto results of more than 200 different lotto games worldwide, with histories going back as far as 1955, we have verified the following incredibly simple rule:

The key to Smart Luck’s successful lotto number selection methods is playing the probabilities. If you play a pattern that occurs only five percent of the time, you can expect that pattern to lose 95 percent of the time, giving you no chance to win 95 percent of the time. So, don’t buck the probabilities.

### How to WIN Ohio Classic Lotto

#### ODD-EVEN LOTTO NUMBER TIPS

When you select your Classic Lotto numbers, try to have a relatively even mix of odd and even numbers. All odd numbers or all even numbers are rarely drawn, occurring less than one percent of the time. The best mix is to have 2/4, 4/2 or 3/3, which means two odd and four even, or four odd and two even, or three odd and three even. One of these three patterns will occur in 81 percent of the drawings.

#### HIGH-LOW LOTTO NUMBER TIPS

Winning numbers are usually spread across the entire number field. If we take a number field and cut it in half, we have the low half and the high half. In a 49-number game like Ohio Classic Lotto 649, numbers 1 to 25 would be in the low half, and numbers 26 to 49 would be in the high half. All high numbers or all low numbers are rarely drawn, occurring only two percent of the time. The best mix is to have 2/4, 4/2 or 3/3, which means two high and four low, or four high and two low, or three high and three low. Winning number groups with these three patterns occur in 82 percent of all drawings.

#### LOTTERY NUMBER GROUP STRATEGIES

Look at a list of past winning numbers for Ohio Classic Lotto, and you’ll see, more often than not, that one or more of the number groups is not represented. For example, in the combination 5-14-17-32-38-49, there are no 20’s. Tracking and studying Number Groups can help you decide which group to omit and which group to give extra heavy play.

#### LOTTERY GAMES SKIPPED STRATEGIES

List the number of games skipped (games out) since the last hit (win) for each of the winning numbers during the last five games. Then mark the number of times each skip occurred. If any skip from 0 to 5 did not occur, play the Lotto numbers that are out that many games. (Help working with lotto games skipped.)

#### LOTTO NUMBER SUM ADVICE – PLAY A BALANCED GAME ®

After you choose six ohio lottery numbers you want to play, add them together and make sure that the sum of the six numbers adds up to somewhere between 115 and 185. Sums that fall within that range will account for over 70 percent of all lottery jackpots won.

#### REPEAT HITS LOTTERY TIPS

In Classic Lotto, on average, one lottery number will be a repeat hit from the last drawing 58 percent of the time.

#### HOT NUMBER LOTTERY SECRETS

Numbers that have been out (losers) for five games or less account for about half of the winning numbers drawn. Losing numbers that have been out ten games or less account for 78 percent of all the winning numbers. This tells us that hot numbers are more likely to hit, but don’t forget to include at least one long shot in your group of 6 ohio lottery numbers.

#### COLD NUMBER LOTTERY SECRETS

It is difficult to know when a cold number will end a long losing streak. If you play a number every drawing because you think it is due, you could be chasing it for many months. (Number 45 in New York Lotto sat out 100 drawings before it finally hit.) Although, when a number has been out for 70 games or so, it might be worth chasing.

### How to Pick Ohio Classic Lottery Numbers

#### Strategy Book

You’re reading free lotto tips to help you play the game smarter and win the lottery, taken from Gail Howard’s lotto book, Lottery Master Guide. This is just a sample, and the book explains all of Smart Luck’s successful methods of number selection in great detail with examples of patterns shown throughout. It is a great starting place for any lotto player.

#### Strategy Software

Advantage Gold software makes all the charts for this game, to automate the process of choosing the best numbers to play.

### Lottery Wheels

#### USE BALANCED WHEEL ® SYSTEMS

Balanced Wheel ® Systems allow you to bet a large group of numbers (more than 6), play scientific combinations of that group of numbers, and get a specific minimum win guarantee. Balanced Wheels ® force all the winning numbers that are in your group to come together to give you at least one prize if some or all of the winning numbers are in your chosen group.

It’s true that the more numbers you wheel, the easier it is to trap the winning numbers in your chosen group. But to get the most leverage for your money, the optimum number of numbers to wheel is not more than four or five numbers over HALF the numbers in your game. To win Ohio Classic Lottery, you should wheel less than about 29 of the 49 total numbers for best results. Otherwise, you’ll be spending MORE money chasing a SMALLER guaranteed prize. You benefit more by wheeling a carefully selected group of lotto numbers for the OH lottery game.

### Lotto Wheels Improve Lotto Odds

After you choose the best numbers with number strategies, you can improve your odds of winning larger prizes by using lotto wheeling systems. It’s simple, easy as A-B-C to wheel pick-6 lotto numbers using the Balanced Wheels in the Wheel Six Gold lottery software. You get a minimum win guarantee with every wheel!

#### THE BEST WAY TO WHEEL ALL THE LOTTO NUMBERS IN YOUR GAME

Any one wheeling system that covers ALL the numbers in the game is too spread out, making the win guarantee not worth the wager. There are smart ways to wheel all the numbers in the game by using Trap-by-Overlap and other wheeling strategies covered on pages 137 to 142 in the Lottery Master Guide.

Most of Smart Luck’s lottery winners used a Balanced Wheel ® in addition to her Smart Luck ® number selection methods. You can use a FREE interactive Balanced Wheel ® Lottery System that won multiple lotto jackpots. Read about our lottery winners, too. And when you win a jackpot with Smart Luck lotto systems, tell us about it so you can be added to Gail Howard’s growing list of lottery winners. If you don’t want your name publicized, we will honor that.

### Save Money by Knowing Lotto Numbers to Avoid

Lotto players who select their lottery numbers thoughtlessly or foolishly are destined to lose even before the drawing takes place. By knowing which number combinations and patterns to avoid, you’ll have an advantage over such players—and save money, too.

#### AVOID NUMBER COMBINATIONS THAT HAVE BEEN DRAWN BEFORE

Many players like to bet the numbers that have won someone else a big jackpot, and by doing so, they are almost guaranteed NOT to win one themselves. In Classic Lotto, with three drawings a week, a set of 6 Ohio lottery numbers has a chance of being drawn once every 89,639 years. This should also answer the question we are so often asked, “Shouldn’t I keep playing the same set of numbers every week because they are due to hit sometime?”

#### AVOID LOW NUMBER COMBINATIONS

The majority of Lotto players like to play the calendar numbers, such as birth dates and anniversaries—and their children’s ages. This means that the most heavily played numbers are 1 through 31. Classic Lotto Ohio has 49 numbers. If you play only the calendar numbers, you might be sharing your jackpot with dozens of other winners. It’s not to say that you shouldn’t play your personal numbers if you feel these lucky numbers are good to play. But we recommend that you include a couple of high numbers so that just in case your numbers do hit, you win a prize that’s worth something.
