Good that there are 2 winners. With a jackpot that high, the more the merrier. It's not surprising with the numbers that were drawn. Lower numbers are bet more often, as people use birthdays, dates, ages, alphabetical number equivalents, and so on.

                Why is California always winning?

                I think California has won more Mega Million jackpots than any other state.  If the lucky few in that state cannot win Super Lotto, they have a chance with MM. Even with the new extra terrible odds.

                    I saw the same thing......lol

                    Perhaps their system has an automated update and it glitched What? 

                    The first couple draws after the matrix change, the website was showing the next jackpot within 10 minutes of the draw.

                    If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
                    If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

                        Yes, MM has been auto-updating with a rollover amount way sooner than usamega updates since their new website. I found it odd that it always had the update almost immediately after the drawing the first few times. Then it was delayed a bit further, but sometimes ahead of usamega and I thought it was always accurate, but it's not.

                          336,545,306 Mega Millions tickets were sold tonight

                           

                          BTW: total sales for last year's $640 million MM run totaled nearly half a billion more than this year's $636 million MM run, and it took fewer draws to do so.

                            They also have 15mill again.  Maybe their trying to get you to buy more tickets.
