LOL  Where you just let your hand randomly select all the numbers, with no set system or numerical preconceptions.

      Sort of like "Automatic Writing".

ohhhh Thanks.  Wonder why it is called that?

    I think it was Lawson??

    He was the last person to win the PB JP, his ticket had 4 QPs and a single winning self pick line.....

    He said "I just checked boxes" or something like that.

    ooohh Ok. That makes sense.

                  "NY has been hitting left and right and NY is only a  fraction of all the PB/MM players throughout the states. It just doesn't add up to the 175 million odds for them to have hit so many times this year. And I am not talking about 2nd prize winnings either, it seems like almost every jackpot this year was hit by NEW YORK"

                  Of all 42 states that have PB, do you know which state usually has the highest amount of PB ticket sales?  It's New York.

                  For the 11/21/2012 drawing, total sales of PB was $86,533,120.  Of that total, New York sold $10,691,772, followed by Florida which sold $9,136,130. Pennsylvania and New Jersey had ticket sales for that same drawing of greater than 6 million dollars and 5 million dollars respectively. 

                  On the other hand, Ohio sold $2,528,614 for the 11/21/12 drawing.  New York and Florida combined sold almost TEN TIMES as many tickets as were sold in Ohio. 

                  The most amount of Jackpots won in 2012 was not in New York.  If you check the winners stories page at The PowerBall website, you'll see two jackpot winners in Iowa, one in Michigan, one in Pennsylvania, two in Rhode Island, one in New Jersey, one in Connecticut and one in New York.

                  NY has 10 million sales? Ok? that just means it's 10m chances and the odds are still the same. Just like all those people who went crazy and spent their rent money and others who spent $1000,$10000 + and still lost it all and won nothing on the $656  Mega Millions. Still doesn't add up.

                  And I really don't care which single state has the highest sales. If you re-read what I typed you will see that I said New York is only a fraction of all the states combined but yet they have been winning the Powerball/Mega Millions (combined) quite often..more so than other states this year.

                  Thanks for your two cents, but I don't need any fancy data or statistics to tell me this.

                    Tempers often flare over NY having the luckiest players and the most winners. I'm going to send a letter to a made up address in NY and after it is returned I will rub it on all my play slips before inserting them.....

                        lol  Best post of the day.  Maybe pull up a pic of the statue of Liberty on your computer and have her auto pic your numbers.

                              I think it would be so cool for a handful of LP members to split the JP..........
