Its not always. Only two times this year

This was win number FIVE for New York this year and number four for California.

You can't predict random.

    Population rank of those two states?

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

    Lep

    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.

          "Incredible," was the first word out of my mouth when I logged on to the NYLottery website this morning
          The moment I saw the words '38 W. Fordham Rd" I knew the ticket was sold right around the block from where my cousin lives. Unfortunately for him, he doesn't play haha.
          I'm just glad the winning ticket wasn't purchase where I bought my tickets (or anywhere else near me, for that matter)I would probably go insane haha.
          I was reading the NY Times article this morning and laughed, with a mixture of pity and empathy, at one of the reactions to the win.

          Tubar Palmer, 43, a neighborhood resident who is a regular at theconvenience store in the Bronx, came in to check if he was the winner.
          “Why?” he shouted, reading aloud the winning numbers, “Why not me?”

          Why not me, Tubar? Or anyone else on this message board? Haha.
          It's always a bummer to lose, but I'm actually glad someone from NYC won again, and that they, like me, could possibly be hispanic.
          Winning has nothing to do with race or nationality, but there's a certain pride that extends beyond the winner just being from New York.
          I imagine a family just like mine, and how incredible their lives have just changed.
          Bless 'em and good luck on tuesday/future drawings everyone.

              Also, in Texas, if you don't choose at the time of purchase, you are automatically assigned the annuity choice.   That's for the jackpot only.

                You went all the way out of your way just to go to that store? I would imagine the BX is a bit of a ways from BK, not to mention those ridiculous tolls one pays to travel from borough to borough. Tell me you were going to a Yankee game or something?! LMAO. I'm on the Jersey side of the Hudson, and getting to the Bronx is no problem for me, heck I even have family there. But I wouldn't waste my gas going to a store that sold the winning ticket to some guy/woman you don't even know.

                 

                I was telling my dad maybe his sister won.....I wonder if he called...lol.

                        Wow...last time I spent about an hour on a NYC subway was the trip to Coney Island. :)

                         

                        Well, I look forward to the next jackpot. I'll be studying my butt off.

                          And what does the obvious population/ticket sales reason have to do with my responding to someone saying NY only had two winners this year?

                            depending on pure luck is the way to go.
                            congrats to the winners.

                              Why in the world did that store in the bronx get only $10,000 ?. The state of New York should be ashamed of them-selfs !.That store that sold that winning ticket  of $166,5000.00 should get at least $500,000 !!!. If I ever win the Mega Millions,that store will get at least 5% of my winnings,after taxes.New York...WAKE-UP!!.Smash
