Wow the lottery really has you fooled lol. Just what they want you think, common sense dictates that type of response. I matched 2 and the other 3 were off by 1 and 2 digits. Megaball was 8 off. I still think it is fixed and will until the day I see proof in front of me.

Oh yeah and "groups" always win the huge ones now it seems, I am seeing patten now. Makes more sense and would be easier to hide by supposedly dividing it all.

So... question. How would they know any particular draw was a group? I don't recall being asked upon purchasing my tickets if it was an individual or group purchase. 

What?

    NewYokers NewYorkers, those people play the lottery like they are on prozac. There's a website that publishes the number of sales per MM game per state and NewYork and California always outsell other states.

    I dont begrudge them, they risk more so they get rewarded more.

    That money's gone fo ever

      Don't know. But I have been playing the Same  set of 5 powerball numbers for 5 years.have yet to hit the big one or even one mill.I know their are numerous number combos out their but I do kinda feel a like their is a bit of slight of hand going on.maybe one day I will hit but that is something to think about.I sometimes wonder if a lot of people from other states  get the first 5 numbers (powerplay) on each drawing?I know it doesn't happen a lot hear in my state.

        Maybe if Mega or Powerball used RNG's then it could be fixed. How do you think they would fix the machines using balls and having the drawing televised each time?

          How can the drawings be fixed? The drawings are live and they use balls. The randomness is right there for you to see. Please tell me how they are rigged.

            Yeah, what's up with that? The odds of winning the 2nd place prize are only 3.9 or 5.1 million to 1. After five whole yeras you certainly should have won at least once by now.

              hopeful its just 1 winner and not some lottery group,

              The way I figure it is that if I don't have the winning numbers, I HOPE THAT WHOEVER has the single winning ticket is a part of a LARGE lottery pool...make the win overall less dramatic.  I especially love that Sargentos 100 pool that won that $200 million Powerball jackpot and each only walked away with less than $1 million each! Bang Head 

              Somebody said that 7 would be the lucky number...did not roll as one of the 6 numbers but the winning lottery group is 7 members (at least for now......hope they have their records airtight or are just 7 total co-workers....you know how it plays out if pools are formed haphazardly and even just one person feels slighted they weren't included in that particular draw (i.e. out sick, vacation and didn't properly plan to have plays covered, etc)).

              Anyway, I am not disappointed I didn't win since I would be just as estatic if my 6 numbers match the next drawing.....it is still more money than I currently have today so I just don't get it when people say, "$12 million (annuity)/$7 million (cash value) is not enough for me to consider playing the lottery."  Sure the odds suck, but I am sure most people blow more than $5 bucks per week on things like cigarettes, Starbucks coffee, movie tickets, out-of-network ATM fees, etc.  I just make sure to not blow my money on things like that so I can blow it on the lottery...at least that has the potential to return my "blown" money into A WHOLE LOTTA CHA-CHING!!!

              Additionally, I no longer get caught up into tracking what the current jackpot level is at since it really doesn't matter unless YOUR SIX NUMBERS all match those drawn.  That is when I will really get excited...but just the mere fact that the jackpot is (was) at $312 million or $150 million in the case of Powerball has no bearing on me and my behaviour.

              Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

              The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!
