I am done buying both those bigger games and WHY is it the east coast always f*****g wins and not the west coast... I think the balls are rigged and i am going to stick with WA state lottery where i have better chances of hitting it... There has been 3 MM winners here in WA state and never PB here and explain that to me.. My wife told me that is the same thing for Canada lottery like Ontario area for instance has more lottery winners than BC area does.. So what gives *&^%$##^

      That's because most people live on the east coast... Ontario buys like 50% of the tickets while BC buys 15%. Who do you think should win more?

          No one else notice that both jp mm and pb were won back to back. And with pb just one ticket hits. Sounds kinda fishy.

            No one cares if you stop playing. The games will go on. If you feel that the games are rigged then you SHOULD stop playing. People that tend to lose say the game is rigged.

            I'll be trying Automatic Writing to get the winning lottery numbers.

            Automatic writing  is an alleged psychic ability allowing a person to produce written words without consciously writing. The words are claimed to arise from a subconscious, spiritual or supernatural source.

              Never said the games were rigged or that i would stop playing. I was just pointing out the coincidence. I think your reply was meant for the original post.HAVE A GREAT DAY AND THANKS FOR SHOPPING.

                  These are the reasons

                  1. The east coast is more densely populated than the west coast.

                  2. East coast residents play the lottery religiously. NY, MA, FL lotteries lead in lottery revenues nationwide.

                  3. The west coast lotteries stop selling PB tickets at around 7:00pm and most east coast cut off time is 10 pm. If the stores open for business from 7 am - 11 pm then west coast business will only get to sell tickets for 12 hours before cut off time. In the east coast if the stores open from 7 am - 11pm then businesses get to sell tickets for 15 hours. The west loses 3 hours.

                  4. Gravity lol

                  It's a futile effort.

                    Oh no. Here we go again. I guess we forget that the ODDS are mostly against us to win anything in lottery to begin with.

                        It's a game of chance. Texas has not had a PB will despite being one of the most populous states. Why? They still don't play as much as others. We DID just have the legislature dissolve the lottery and then reinstate the lottery in a matter of hours when they realized how much money they collect from players. We can't even get casinos here despite the millions of Texas $$ going to LA & OK casinos. Galveston would be such a cool gambling destination, but NOOOOOOOO "gambling is EVIL". Doh

                          I don't think it's fixed, just more people playing the east coast.  I still play each drawing, and will go get my mm and PB ticket for tues and wed.

                          $40m is  still find with me

                            Number 3 makes sense but it does'nt matter. Cali sold 46mill $$ in tickets compared to NY-39/Fla-36. What might be rigged is the final total. They sold alot of tickets so it should be much higher then 590.

                              The odds are horrible. I just wonder how many people drained accts trying for that
                              $600M?
                              When you consider odds of 1 in 175M+ for the jackpot win, it should be clear that
                              you're probably not going to win.
                              Anyone can win, it takes one ticket...boy, whoever invented that slogan knew what
                              a sticking point it would be. It's true but to buy one ticket then complain about not
                              winning is not realistic. Neither is buying 100 tickets...the odds are stacked against
                              you.
                              One day you might be that lucky (unlucky) sucker...but until then if you play you
                              might as well make it as painless as possible. Buy one ticket and when you don't
                              win, get over it or quit altogether.
