Well, it is closer for those on the Gulf Coast to go to Florida, rather than Louisiana.  Now all we need is a MegaMillions in Mississippi or Alabama.  The odds are always high!  Just waiting for the fairy to sprinkle dust this way.  FOTFL. Smile

    Even with Florida there was no reason to really raise the odds that much other than the obvious reason they did it. It's very disproportionate to how much business Florida is likely to bring in. If I remember correctly, all the states (and territories) combined that are a part of the Powerball game still don't come close to the total population that of the handful of states that make up Mega Millions.

    You can't predict random.

      Do you remember when that group from Australia won the very first Power Ball game??  That upset all of us in Virginia at the time.  I was just reminising a little. Sad Now they want to make it harder!!!!  Oh well thank heaven for the Texas Two Step!!!
