        The guy who was interviewed said that. The OP said they interviewed some guy. The guy got it wrong.


        I'm the OP, and you get it!!  The others who've responded to your posts dont get it!

        BTW, The "Fox News" I was referring to was the local FOX New York City affiliate, FOX5-NY, not the nationally syndicated FOX News Channel. 

        I simply thought it was hilarious that some local yokel in New York City said it appeared to him that all Jackpot winners come from some place other than New York, "like Alaska and Wyoming", which are two states that do not have PowerBall.  If you've read many posts here at The Lottery Post, (as I have) then you know that people living in states other than New York habitually complain that New York has more winners than anywhere else. I guess it all depends upon where you live that determines your perspective on various things. 

        As an after thought, the complainers are probably correct!  There's 19 million people living in The State of New York (which is the third most populated state behind California and Texas), as compared to Nebraska where less than 3 million live. Maybe that has a little something to do with more tickets being sold in New York, and the probability being higher that some one in New York will hit the jackpot before some one living in Nebraska.   

        California (population 37 million) would probably produce a lot of Powerball jackpot winners too, if they had PowerBall, which they dont!

        About playing the lottery --  You will lose more than you win. Until you hit a jackpot.  Then everything changes!

          If nobody won the prize...I guess this will be the largest jackpot winning ever... But I am crossing my fingers that I will win it...I will win soon...
