Wow...I always have a play in for every drawing, but never felt compelled to buy any more plays. I did not win but feel good that I did not get caught up in jackpot amount hype. I actually lived by my mantra thatother jackpot amount only matters AFTER you find you have the winning ticket! I can adjust my dream accordingly...I have $25 million dreams as well as a few nine figure million dollar dreams, but I don't allow my optimism to ride the jackpot amount roller coaster.

 

Funny how I aM I has won last two big PB jackpots...I predict next winners will be IlL aNd WiDe!

If you don't get it........

I Agree! the hype is dangerous for a disciplined gambler, such as myselfCool

besides, i couldn't get myself to splurge for that extra dollar to buy a ticket. i will have to settle for a measly $21 million in MM.

    As a California player, I am very jealous of those frequent high jackpots from Powerball.

    As a Florida player, I am very jealous of Mega Millions $1 ticket price. Remember the $656 Mega Millions Jackpot. Occasional I take a rode trip to Georgia and play advance play. A Dollar and A Dream!

      Great Iowa has won it multiple huge jackpots this year no to mention a big Mega millions too. I thnk since California  win the Mega every month and small states like Iowa win the power all its frustrating.

          Probably the winner is a recent transplant from California.

                  Carl8080,

                  It's a little hard to believe someone from NY would complain about a winner's location outside of NY.

                  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.

                      Or maybe a New York resident who was passing through Iowa, where they bought their ticket, to re-locate to California.

                        Either way, I cant wait to hear the person interest story of the CA/NY resident who bought a ticket in Iowa.

                          iowa won again. same couple states winning multiple times per year is very annoying.

                          I contributed $2 to the jackpot winner. The lottery did not choose my combination to win the jackpot.lol

                            It takes money to chase those big jackpots. Oh, I'm sorry it only cost $2 to play.
