      There is over 30 winners that are not cali or new york since 2010.  I just read it off the website.  Just because they win does not mean they win all the time.-weshar75

      Don't forget to include powerball, even though this is a MM's topic.

        once again it's because more tickets are sold in ca/ny. they also have more losers than any other states have because they sell more tickets. can you understand this concept. it has nothing to do with being a resident of those states. they will continue to win 10x more often because they sell 10x more tickets.

        The problem is, if it is truely random, it wouldn't consistently show bias on MM or PB.

            Next jackpot will start at $490 million if nobody wins tonight.

            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?

                Brad Duke won a huge jackpot from Idaho and that isn't one of the "chosen" states.

                    I'll have to check today's interest rates, but eyeballing it I would say about $267 million.

                    However, jackpot would most likely increase by the time of drawing, especially being so close to $500M annuity.

                    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.

                      Hoping for a single ticket winner in Texas! We've never had a BIG jackpot win, just the smaller ones.  I'll be buying PB and Tx Lotto, too. 

                       

                      Keep on dreaming!  Good luck to everyone!
