You said you do not believe the lottery is rigged and then you said it favored that area due to all the big spenders and amount of tickets being sold.  Uhm, that would be rigged.  Wink  Just saying.........

really? do you think that would be rigged? never thought of it that way - my interpretation of rigged would be a pre-determined area to win .. but if more numbers are bought at a certain local, that would just mean favorable outcome more likely to come from that area because of the volume of numbers drawn .. no? *shrugs shoulders* Smile

when i win - solo, my lawyer will be instructed to say "a group of 52 retired navy seals have won" -- you know, to get the haters off my butt .. Sulk Off

        No, actually a state that sold less tickets than others but won more consistently would be better evidence of the process being rigged.

        The facts and statistics as they are do not lend themselves to foster any reason to suspect any impropriety whatsoever at least as it applies to MM and PB.

            I had a feeling someone from New York Would win this Jackpot.Unfortunately it wasn't me as I only matched numbers 52 and 54.

            Those were the only numbers I matched as well.


            Had the Megaball been a 34 and not a 4, I could've gotten all the money I spent on the last game back to play the next one. :)

              I suppose in your eyes limiting the winners to only those folks who can afford a ticket is rigging too?

                            welp,  put another check mark in the it's totally random column... (and it only takes 1QP ticket to find out). Thumbs Up

                     visiondude's common sense approach on a game that is totally random will still fall on deaf ears (mostly),  even with the latest more than obvious Crazy  occurance. 

                  still, i must press on,  it's my self appointed job description at LP.

                  because i know it's like an MLM in here,  you preach the common sense mantra that it's random,  and only 1QP will let you know if you are "meant to" to the  THOUSANDS,  while attempting to reach the "few" that do have a hold on their emotions,  and whom will adjust back into common sense land.

                  i work for "those people"...

                                  "desperation highway will never take you anywhere good,  but good ol common sense always will"

                  P.S.,  that RJoH  is a stand up guy.  thanks,  vision

                           until further notice,  it's  france everyday

                    It it funny how anytime the jackpot flirts with breaking the record it is all the sudden won. I knew it would be won this time. I still think it is all BS and fixed. I am sure the next one will be won one draw before potentially breaking the record too, just like the last Powerball one was.

                      in an unpredictable game,  you will always have people that are either (a) unhappy with a portion of it,  or (b) suspicious of it,  because it didn't go how they thought it should,  or might.

                      truth is,  it not rolling one more time is more of an indiactor that it isn't fixed.

                      when you throw the blanket of common sense over that "suspicion",  you will come to the conclusion that if any part they wanted to fix.....it would have been "one more roll".

                      there is no better advertizement than a new world record.

                      visiondude is naturally curious and suspicious,  and lives to qualify "truths" in life.

                      so far,  being blessed with extra amounts of common sense....the lotteries ain't fixed.

                      if the public sensed they were,  you wouldn't have had a $319,000 pot, let alone $319 million.

                      it's pretty simple math.  new york has won "more",  simply because more players reside there (percentage-wise).

                      btw, i won $7 by getting 3 white balls on my 1QP,  so all those people who used to call me a "loser" in here,  can't anymore.

                      neener neener.

                          Just saw on the evening news that said it WAS a group win, 7 state workers! Starting to pop up on other news publications too.

                            I had a feeling it had to be a group/work win if it was from Albany.

                            That would've been insane if a jackpot that big had been won by one individual or family.
