Already got my numbers ready, good luck everyone.

Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

For a lead role in a cage?

      The lottery is biased towards heavily democrat states.

        If you don't want your money flowing to new york and california,  don't play the national lotteries anymore.  Play your state lotteries instead.

              You are exactly right. Remember what Kennedy said: My fellow Americans, ask not what your Lottery can do for you, ask what you can do for your Lottery.

                  hsg2000,

                  You think just maybe it has to do with population and ticket sales?

                  From the Powerball website, winners by states that you mentioned, 2-19-2014 drawing. More people in each of those states had 1 + PB than people in Louisiana had just the PB.

                  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.

                    I asked for $5 of Fantasy 5  and the man said " all on the same ticket?' I said "Yes". Then he hand me 5 Mega Millions ticket. I just took it because people have won on mistake tickets. Fingers crossed.

                          Back in 2011, before the onset of the $2 Powerball ticket, MM was producing on a 15th draw a jackpot greater than $300M annuity, this with a much higher cash to annuity ratio.

                          If you look, between the competition with the $2 Powerball ticket, and the far worse odds associated with the new matrix, the much lower expectation value, the reduced lower prize levels, sales for this game are way off, as, I think, they should be.

                          I know I'm saving money on lottery tickets since the changeovers in PB and MM.   I'll still play for the giant jackpots, but unlike before, I'm out with the jackpots less than $200,000,000 annuity.

                            There has never been a MM jackpot winner in Florida. Not yet at least.

                            You gotta be in it to win it.

                              The lottery is biased towards heavily democrat states.

                              How low American intelligence  has gotten we now see even lottery thru our political divisions? 

                               

                              Congrats on a new low.
