    I guess that's pretty much true.  Here's the number of jackpot wins for Mega Millions by year:

    • 2001 - 11
    • 2002 - 12
    • 2003 - 11
    • 2004 - 11
    • 2005 - 8
    • 2006 - 15
    • 2007 - 9
    • 2008 - 12
    • 2009 - 9
    • 2010 - 13  (perhaps 14th on Friday?)

    Although the number of jackpot winners hasn't exactly skyrocketed, I think the years with only 8-11 jackpot wins are over.  That means gone are the days when we see jackpots worth nearly $400 million.  It would have to be a pretty extreme fluke, I would think.

                            I couldn't think of a better way to end this year then by winning this huge jackpot. I need to go find some bald guy so I can rub his head for luck.
