    I Agree!

    Like adding charcoal to embers or wood to fire, quarrelsome people kindle strife."

      Unfortunately,  it is political.  If you match up the big jackpot lottery winner states with the 2012 election results,  my claims do fit.  http://www.politico.com/2012-election/map/#/President/2012/

      I am at least looking at things from other angles,  I ain't sure how that equates to low intelligence.  Oh and by the way,  how is california still broke with all them big jackpot wins!?  They should of gotten caught up by now!

          I've been playing powerball and mega millions for years. The mega millions, I started playing 10 years ago and Ive played both in about 20 states out of the 50 and the most I have ever won was $100.00 I'm really starting to become turned off about it. These jackpots climb so big and thats great but something just don't seem right about it to me anymore. I'm determined to believe that they know more about what numbers are in and what numbers aren't in. America is ran by liars and crooks and I'm starting to believe these people are milking-it and paying the right people off!! This lottery stuff is great but I do believe that once the drawing is near, they already know what was played and what was not played.

           

           I believe this is what they use to determine where they want the winner to be. The night Gloria Mackenzie won the record powerball for $500+Million they convienently had the drawing down in Florida. I just think the whole thing is an organized business that is not exactly what people think. I really do believe they know where the Winner will be only before the draw. Once all the participating states turn in their data to the mega/powerball that is when they know whats in and what is not in. It is my opinion that they have to do it this way to prevent them from losing big money. All of the retailers that sell mega/powerball, their terminals are not directly linked to the mega/powerball systems, that is why the numbers have to be reported before the drawing. In Ohio  if you play the regular pick4 lotto choosing 4 digits between 0-9, if you tell the clerk you want to play 1111 most of the time the system will say it s sold out when you try to play that particular number because so many people play it, so to protect themselves (Ohio Lottery) their terminal automatically locks out that combination to protect them from too big of a payout. So why in heck wouldn't the mega/powerball do the same thing? They are selling to many more people and many different players. For Example (IF I FEEL LUCKY ONE DAY AND WANT TO PUT $2,000 ON ONE COMBINATION AND PLAY ALL THE BONUS BALLS WITH THAT COMBINATION, IF IT COMES OUT THEY WILL OWE ME THE JACKPOT AND AN ADDITIONAL $1,999,000,000 IF IT'S WITH THE MULTIPLIER AND IT'S 5 THEY WILL OWE THE JACKPOT AND AN ADDITIONAL $9,995,000,000 You have got to be idiotic to really believe they are just putting balls in a bin and letting them come up on their own and taking a risk without no barriers of protection. That's not realistic!!! They know It's belivable because one would say to themselves "well their is this many combinations and that many combinations so maybe no one got it" My thinking is quite different. I'm thinking they don't know who the winner is exactly but they have an idea what kind of person will win based off of demographic and market research info on that area.

           

          Before a state becomes a member of the powerball/mega demographic and market research analysis reports are gathered on that state. I believe in this information, they have all the data to tell them the profile of the jackpot winner. Age, Background, Working class etc. (Based on zip code) They know a poor welfare recipient is more than likely not gonna live in 90210, they know that more than likey working class people buy lotto on lunch breaks or during times away from work. The combinations themselves tell these lottery people a lot too, their system is so incredible that if you win and someone steals your ticket from you they will have a idea based off the data they already compiled, that this is not the true winner and an investigation will be launched. Texas has a system similar to this and they have recovered many lottery prizes that were swindled or stolen from the rightful owner.

                Your wish has been granted.

                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?

                  It did. A whopping increase of $21 million (annuity, of course) to $216  million. The times they are a changin' for sure.

                    The lottery is biased towards heavily democrat states.

                    Wait I thought Florida was a red state?

                      According to this http://www.politico.com/2012-election/map/#/President/2012/  It's apparently a blue state.

                        So what do you need to get $70 million net in your bank account?

                        Start by being the sole winner of the Mega Million $216 million jackpot Big Grin

                          Now that it rolled to $200m+, I may not wait for 61 and 68 to hit before I start playing again.

                            This jackpot is not growing fast enough.  Bring the ole matrix back or raise the initial JP to 100 mil.
