I live in ny, and I have never won $10k playing the lottery. I rarely see anybody winning a jackpot in New York City. Long Island and Staten Island win the most jackpots. I feel that they need to win a lottery jackpot more than ever after being hit by hurricane sandy.

I Agree!

    NY has not met its annual quoto as yet. So the current schedule is null and void. Texas was supposed to split a win in December. Cross your fingers that NY wins this one to move your state up the list.

    Do you understand what I mean, when I say that I will play the lottery someday? We have more lottery losers than winners in New York State. Should I say in the USA?

        I hear players complaining about not having jackpot winners in their state, but we have more losers than winners in the USA lotteries. I mean, the odds of winning the MM or PB are insane.

              No argument here. People you can unerstand would like to see more wins in their respective states. This is not something I complain about as Florida joined the Powerball in 2009 and have won 3 Jackpots to date. We are one of the major contributors but comparatively speaking that's not a bad performance at all. That doesn't include the number of 2nd tier prizes won in this new matrix.

              I tease my brother all the time about this. He's in NY and I say to him you guys just won and you can imagine how he responds to that...lol!

                    $250 million, now we are cooking with gas. How cool would it be to win the Powerball just in time for Thanksgiving? Actually I am fine with the second prize.

                      I play the lottery, but i am afraid of winning a lottery jackpot someday. I usually play to win a second prize on MM or PB. Winning a big lottery jackpot is not a good idea because I can't be anonymous in New York.

                      Realistically you are correct, you are much better off winning the second prize than the first prize. I was with my buddy this weekend who won the Mega Millions about 6 years ago now. We were at a party at a club and all his friends and family still annouce him to people as the guy that won the lottery to someone new. I can't tell he just hates it. He actually moved out of town a few years ago, but he is still forced to come here often because of his kids here with his ex, even though he would love to just be totally gone where no one really knew who he was. 

                      If you just win $1,000,000 for even $250,000 in a second prize no one really cares and you can pretty much go on with your life. He did not even win that much, less than $10 million after taxes, God help the person who wins hundreds of millions, I can't imagine the hell your life will become.

                        Obviously his friends and family didn't respect him enough to stop introducing him

                        as a lottery winner.

                          This article reads:  "The estimated cash value for the new jackpot is $166.8 Million."

                            THRIFTY,

                            Staten Island is one of the five burroughs of New York City.

                            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.
