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.....

LO L  Maybe I'm just mad because Ohioians can't even win its own state game. I'm sorta new to this site but I find is hillarious that LP members get serious about these type of comments. He's probably an employee of Powerball and will set the terminals for 3 New Yorkers to win it only this Wednesday to piss me and everybody else off that NY pulls off another win.

 

I swear if that happens, even if NY win this one, I will be done playing this game..lmao

    I noticed this little out of the way store that is not too far from me that has a lottery sign in the window. It is next to one of those kind of sketchy looking check cashing places but I may get  a Qp there for one of my two tickets.

      Instead of getting mad about it I just politely ask every once in a while that "they" choose me for any one of the many JPs, and I vow to use the money locally supporting all my favorite merchants.......Yes Nod

        I love the little hole in the wall stores and I always try to play at one whenever I pass one if I haven't already played for that game. I won twice at one of these little stores on my local state game. I matched 4 of 6 and almost fainted because all the numbers matched in order but the last two as they came across the screen. Funny how whenever I win its always from a QP but I seem to match the PB/MB quite often or nearly match by being a number higher/lower when I self pick my tickets.

              Sounds like others have tried this also with these little out of the way stores.  Interesting. I never even noticed the lottery sign till yesterday and used to go further down the road to a 7-11.

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

                  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.

                    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.

                    CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

                    A DOLLAR AND A DREAM (OR $2)

                      I think it was about your temper, GiveFive posted some useful information as to

                      why New York has winners is because they have more players, he didn't seem serious at all.

                          Nah, I'm not really mad. I play this game for fun and I understand the odds but I also understand someone has to win it eventually. If it's meant to be, it will be. But if I win this one someone willl probably have to give my heart a jump start and scoop me up off the ground. lol

                           

                          I remember how I reacted when I won $5000 on the pick 4. I did summer salts in my living room and ran around the house cheezing. I can only imagine how i'd react for millions of $$$!!! lol
