Congratulations to this jackpot winner. This will be part of the current event.

I'm looking forward to reading your current events.

Will it be in your Lottery Post Blog?

    I want someone to investigate why california constantly wins the big national lotteries.  I don't believe for a split second that its because more people are playing there either.  I have seen state lotteries with people winning in no name small towns.

    I'll get right on that. I'll let you know what insights my investigation yields. LOL

        They should reintroduce a subscription service, they had one a few years ago, I don't know why they stopped it.

        We all get a lot out of lotteries!

          Higher pay-outs, more players, higher revenue, more money for education, simple as that. And even if the percentage for education programs was decreased, if the revenue pool is higher then obviously the part for education will be higher than usual. And it is heart-warming to know that unclaimed prizes still go to school funds.

            They stopped it because no one used it

             

            (I worked closely wth the CA Lottery from 1988 - 2004. So I know just a little bit about it)

             

            We proposed higher payouts ever since 1999. The Lottery should be able to do $5 Billion a year. Doing away with Keno (as messed up of a court ruling as I've ever seen) cost them over $300 million per year in sales - about a hundred million for schools.

             

            I hope Jerry doesn't try to tax JP winnings - it would negatively impact sales.
