    NY wins a lot, check out the mega millions website. I think they've won the most since 2002...they just have a problem remembering to claim the jackpot.  I hope this winner doesn't forget, or loose/destroy the ticket or whatever.

      I don't agree. Especially  if you are young. Look what happened to Whittaker, Edwards and others.

      Age has nothing to do with it and even if those guys took the annuity they probably STILL would have had the same problems.

      You can't predict random.

        it will come back to georgia!!!

        The heck with that...MM and PB winners are too often on the East coast.  It needs to head out West for a few wins to be even closely fair.

            I bet you Gerogia will not win the jackpot for a while. Other state like NY needs to start winning the jackpot too.

              Needs to start? New York had at least one winner last year IIRC and so far this year with eight jackpot winners for MM, New York has now had four winners (all single JP wins too), California three, Virginia two, New Jersey and Ohio have each had one. With a bit over five months to go, I think NY has won enough. LOL  Georgia, Michigan and Ohio (especially Ohio) had their share last year but it was over a course of the entire year and I don't believe any state had four winners, let alone three in just seven months.

                gocart1 & LottoPools,I don't think states should make you make an important decision like that until you have a chance to your lawyer & financial advisers.I'm glad I live in a state that allows you to wait before deciding how to take your money.

                WELL thats how new york works ,but you cant fight city hall......lmao....Maddmike .........hows your ride ...nice bike by the way..  2000 superglude,,fxdx..

                i work at a hospital in the bronx and i was just told that the guy that brings the air tanks and nitrogen on a truck to the hospital was the winner...best of luck to him....the reason i know about this is the guy quit the job and now there is a new guy driving the truck...........Party

                      Based off the MM website NY has won 16 times (17 including this last win), NJ: 13 and GA: 8. The website information ony goes back to the year 2002, so maybe the results would be different if years from before then were included.

                      But 3 times you guys let the jackpot go unclaimed....what-the-hoo-ha man?!? Confused

                        "The player selected the lump sum option instead of getting 26 annual payments."

                         

                        Do you have to choose your method of payment when you purchase your ticket in New York?

                        I've never heard of this before.Most states allow you to decide on the method of payment when you redeem the winning ticket,don't they?

                        In Georgia , at time of purchase you must select cash option or annuity.  If jackpot prize is won, and you chose Cash Option at purchase, you have 60 days from date prize is claimed to change your mind and claim prize as annuity.  if you chose annuity at time of purchase you cannot change it to cash option if jackpot prize is won.

                         

                        In South Carolina, you must also choose Cash Option or Annuity at purchase time.  I don't know if you can change claim method if jackpot prize is won.  I love the fact that South Carolina will let you claim prizes of any size including jackpot annonymously!

                          At my age I would never take an annuity.I can understand why a younger person might choose an annuity,though.I think all states should allow winners to be anonymous.There is no reason why the entire world needs to know how much you are worth.If you want to go public,fine,that should be your right,but it should also be right to remain anonymous.
