For instance- when was the last time we had a MM or PB jackpot winner from Texas, Nebraska or say Oregon.Does this imply those players are dumb when it comes to picking winners?

 

* No offense if you live in those States..

      " Helpmewin"- your point is well taken, but when was the last time any Player in those States won the big one? On the otherhand...

      Since 2003, Pennsylvania state has sold the most winning powerball jackpot tickets. 
      There were 12 jackpot tickets sold in Pennsylvania. 
      After that Indiana has sold 9 jackpot tickets.

      Why is that?

          Every state have dummies and all of them aren't lottery players, however if the smarter people  don't play the lotteries it could give the appearance of lottery players being dumber than the average person.

          * you don't need more tickets, just the right ticket * 
          * your best chance at winning a lottery jackpot is to buy a ticket *

                New Hamphsire, 1964 I think.

                McGinnis knows for sure.

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

                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.

                  Why is that?

                  When using historical count of winners per state, you have to remember that most states weren't even in this game until a couple of years ago.

                      Sorry for the Feudian slip with Mcginnis.
