What if one or more members hit the jackpot, and they throw a by invitation only celebration party? Party

 

If I were lucky enough, I would invite 25 LP members for an all expense paid round trip flight, StarStarStarStar hotel, all meals, tips included.

We could determine a date that would work for everybody, and have a day of non-stop fun, and a raffle for a couple of big cash prizes.

Not everyone invited would necessarily want to go. For those that refuse, we could come up with a list of additional members until

we get our total of 25 excited members that are on-board.

I don't see any disclaimers so  BECAREFUL of what you promise because I will be expecting my invitation and prize money. lol

          Well my curiosity got the best of me and I had to do a little research on USA Mega. For 2012, there were 10 PB jackpots won. Iowa had 2, and Rhode Island had 2, NY had 1. For 2012, MM had 11 jackpots won. California had 5, NY had 3, and Illinois had 2.

          As another poster pointed out, the states with the highest populations usually have the best odds of winning a jackpot. Simple. California actually is the state to hate. If CA had PB they probably would have a couple of those jackpots also.

          I do understand that there are more players in NY and that they have more CHANCES to win over other states but they do not outweigh all the players statewide that participate in the game. I swear it seems like everytime I checked USAMEGA for who won it was NEW YORK. Both jackpot and 2nd prize. Maybe I'm just bias against NY... But I noticed Cali and MI winning a lot too past couple years but NY seems to be on fire. Didn't they win like 2 or 3 JACKPOTS in a row?

            That must be the "new Donald" and I got the "classic" with 4 QPs and one self pick......

            I see and hear $425 Million PB jackpot everywhere. It is insane like your winning Donald ticket. Good luck.

              It's still @ 425 Million? I swear they are holding out. I thought that number would have changed by now.

                        I am  anticipating TWO INCREASES before actual draw time. Both at midday on Tuesday and Wednesday.

                        I forgot when they increased it with MegaMillions, I think it did increase twice.

                        I'm thinking another $100mil increase so Wednesday's jackpot will be $525.

                        Then again this is a $2 game, it might be more.

                              I WILL PLAY THE LOTTERY SOMEDAY TO AVOID THE LOTTERY INSANITY. IT IS OKAY TO DREAM.

                              I AM A THRIFTY LOTTERY PLAYER BECAUSE I SAVE LINES TO PLAY SOMEDAY.

                              MY REGULAR LOTTERY PROGRAMMING.

                              1) Playing the lottery more often for less lines= Playing a single line.

                              2) Playing the lottery less often for more lines= Playing multiple lines.

                              3) Playing the lottery less often for less lines= Playing a single line monthly or yearly.

                              4) Playing the lottery more often for more lines= Spending more money= Gambling addiction.

                              I SET A LOTTERY STOP LOSS LIMIT TO MINIMIZE MY LOSSES.

                              A lottery stop loss limit is very important to be a successful lottery player over the long term.

                              SAVING YOUR MONEY VERSUS PLAYING THE LOTTERY?

                              GOOD LUCK EVERYBODY.
