Some time in the future, when someone hits the inter-galactic lottery:

How come it's always someone from planet Troubador 27? They always win.

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

Lep

There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

      Hmmmm ?? Someone(s) who purchased this ticket in California is now 150 + million richer(after taxes of course) and California  has no taxes on this ????

      Interesting.

      To the winner(s) I hope you get  some sleep soon and congrats on your win. Your life will be forever changed. Spend and invest wisely  Hyper

        Yeah, like in the movie Contact, when Jodie Foster travels through a wormhole to the Vega star system.

                        Congrats to the winners, maybe next time for the rest of us. I don't get why people get mad when they don't win, just be happy for those that did. Take a little joy in knowing you contributed to their happiness.

                        Totally agree. The west does not complain when we read of winners from FL or NJ. Don't worry be happy- what goes around comes around. ..as they say!
                        Congrats to the Winner/ Winners.

                            some of you need to get over the fact that a certain state (in this case ca) win so often. maybe they  sold 50x as many tickets as your dismal midwestern tornado strewn state did. that means that there are 50x as many losers in cal as in your state. no such thing as a lucky state or store, gas station, or wherever you can buy them. the only thing that matters is your set of numbers or a clerks hesitant or non-hestitant finger on a quick pic lottery machine. nothing else matters especially where you live. less tickets sold in a state means the winner is less likely to come from there. i estimate there are probably 500x more tickets sold in ca, ny, fla, ma than in nebraska for example, thus the preponderence of more winners there. that's all it means. also stop complaining about the differences in the 2 games. if you don't like one or the other don't play it. many of you don't realize how much better off your chances would be winning your own state lotto or cash 5 games. facing 175 million to 1 odds twice a week isn't the way to go with your average life span of only 70 something years. especially those that don't play unless it's 300 million or more thus limiting your chances even more. what's wrong with 40 million if that's they type of prize you're looking for. can't scrape by with that. no one would be hounding you as much for sure. ohio people should be focusing on that 56 million state lotto instead of these insidious mm or pb jackpots. percentages are much more in your favor there. so shovel your way out and play that one if you're "lucky" enough to be in that state.
