KC2012--

It is not weird that NY and CA win a lot of jackpots...it is simple numbers. There are more lottery players in sheer numbers in NY, CA, or even TX for that matter, so statistically speaking, these type of states should have a larger proportion of the jackpot winners.

  Heh what about the number of Ohio jackpots then?

 

State       JACKPOTS            YEAR JOINED MM                LAST JACKPOT/$

CA               10                                 '05                                      8/09/168 MIL.

GA               10                                 '02                                      9/09/12 MIL 

IL                 5                                  '02                                       5/08/85 MIL

MD               7                                  '02                                      9/08/24 MIL

MA               1                                   '02                                      9/04/294 MIL

MI                9                                   '02                                      10/08/42 MIL

NJ               14                                   '02                                      3/09/216 MIL

NY               18                                  '02                                       8/09/168 MIL

    Yeah, that would be true that the number of players in NY would dictate more winners........Well, ...Ok, then how about NY bow out of the Mega lotto and just be they're own "super lotto" within New York since in the current scenerio the smaller states that Never win are never GONNA win and therefore are just giving our dollars away each week so someone in the bigger states can snap it up ! Hehehe...If Ya think about it though, It DOESN'T make sense that if it's the Easy Pics that keep winning -why is it the machine located in NY that keeps spitting out the winning ticket ?? I mean, anybody in little old lonely town anywheres can buy an easy pic, right ?

      Roll Eyes may a giant ny sewer rat eat the ticket b4 they can cash it in

      Talk about sour grapes; did you get a lump of coal for XMAS???  Would you want the same thing to happen to you if you were the winner?? Cut some slack--it was their time to win, plain and simpleApprove

        you forgot to say put $500K in a brief case (I have one just in case!) to bring to the "gentleman's club".

        There is also no longer a big Powerball jackpot. The winner was in Kentucky.
        That really fries my chicken!  I had 2+Bonus on Weds.

          Haha...yeah, No sour Grapes here though-  just a little good natured "Ribbing" to the winner ..... But I'm gonna tell you all that if/when I win, I'm still gonna log on here & complain so nobody knows it's me who won!! ...hahaha.....That way I can hopefully bypass a multitude of new & sudden 'Friends" !

          But also, don't kid yourself's TOO much about the Lotto $$$ helping Schools all that much, I mean- look around you ! In my town, MOST of the old Schools which are very beautiful & decorative old brick buildings are boarded up & rotting away due to lack of funds...or whatever reason...  it sure is a shame...you'd think "15 BILLION paid to schools" as the billboard by the train station states would be enough to keep them open for ever ! Thats right.....BILLION   Crazy

            Funny how the jackpots never go to record levels anymore, and are won between $100 and $200 million. I usually predict when they will be won as I did with the powerball last night. Yet all this time they do not get won and then all the sudden they get won as if the odds change. I don't believe the whole more people playing theory either. I still smell a fish in the large jackpot games. I won't ever believe they are legit unless I or someone I know wins.

              I Agree! Your right about that : as I think about it, after 20+ years of playing, I don't personally know anyone who's ever won the biggie. ..I don't even know anyone who know's anyone that ever won it !!!  However I do know legit winners of a couple hundred thou....but never the millions.

              I never played Easy pics cause I thought the odds of the machine picking the same 6 #s again within the next few hours (I'm a last minute player) would be too unrealistic- but if they say the easy pics are the majority of the winners then I'll give it try !

              Also as above I stated the billboard here says 15 Billion went to schools - well , my mistake, it says 20 Billion ! I have no idea how many schools are here in Michigan but i really gotta think that with 20 bil- every one of those doors should be open with class in session this morning !! ya think ?

              Be safe out there on New Years Eve everyone !!!!!

               

              Oh yeah ...and HOORAY for the Power Partywinner in Kentucky !
