It seems that Ohio often takes home big Mega Millions jackpots.

Does Ohio quick pick system synchonize with Mega Millions drawings?

    Once again I can swear that the ticket will not be sold in Massachusetts. There is something rotten in MA when it comes to Megamillions jackpots. I'm gonna have to buy my tickets from Jersey (no state taxes on lottery) when I go there.

    Somebody wish me some Jersey luck :)

        > you need to drive to your nearest powerball state and buy a ticket. i have 2 tickets for powerball and i don't know how many i have for the megamillion.

        >it said one of the second place winners was from new york. it could be me. whoopee!!!

        If you live in a Megamillions state you would be MUCH better off putting your gas money in Mega that powerball.

        The Odds for Mega are better than PN (though bad)

        AND the cash amounts are MUCH bigger for Mega...

        I did drive down today for Mega tickets, and Ill Lotto and Ill little lotto.

        Illinois cash amount is very near $100 mil. AFTER taxes...

          I did not buy Powerball nor Megamillion tickets this time.

          If no one gets the grand prize, I will buy 2 tickets each of the MM in GA and PB in SC & NC as I travel on         I - 85 N.

          Everyone wish me luck so I win both the Grand Prizes and have fun!!!!!

            PowerBall jackpot was won and now it time for MegaMillions to be won.  I will be doing my best to bring it home to Ohio, my home.

              I always like to see more than one person win when the jackpot gets so high.  Tonight there were PB winners in DE and PA and it would have been nice to be #3 (or even #10!)   Come to think of it, I didn't buy a ticket tonight, so that would have been a little tricky!

                  I'm glad more than one person won on PB. If it did roll I don't think it would have gotten as high as MM did on its last roll. I hope MM rolls at least one more time.

                    Well I wasn't one of the Powerball winners, but good luck to those who are playing Mega Millions.

                        I already bought tickets for Powerball since I live in a Powerball state (Idaho). I am not close enough to the Washington border to buy Mega Millions tickets, so I am out of that drawing.

                        whoops i had it backwards. so sorry.

                              I am always amazed at the different players here that say and I quote..."I could never win the big jackpot."

                              I had a very successful person tell me when I was young about being positive and believing.  He said and I quote again....  "WHAT YOU SAY IS WHAT YOU GET". 

                              How true that very saying is to me and all.  Some of you just dont know it.  It may not come true in the time frame that you are wanting but down the line it does become true.  You make it come true.  Again law of attraction.  I won a large jackpot 10 or 11 years ago, but I also know I am going to win another one.  I just know it and I believe it.Hyper  So if you want to win you got to really believe you are.
