      What is going on with Calif. winning so much?

      Well, En ReVal, it is because California has more adults than any other state.  Plus, more of California state's population and visitors buy the online lottery tickets. 

      Today's realization that California ticket vendors have already sold 3 MegaMillions jackpot winning tickets and 4 Powerball jackpot winning tickets (each game only has approximately 13 jackpots won per year), has caused a lot of 'single-row, every drawing players' to switch to playing less or ceasing ... since odds of winning were already astronomical before California started selling lottery tickets to each game.  It is a non-California, on-line lottery ticket buying, analysts situation of 'gambling hopelessness'.

        *facepalm* More BS conspiracy theories about California always winning? Okay, let me put it to you this way:

        Person: Darnit, California wins again. I'm gonna stop playing.

        Same Person when jackpot grows $100m+: I got my numbers already!

        So you're saying it is a conspiracy theory california won the jackpot the other night?  I mean come on...how many more times do they need to win in a row to convince you something isn't right?  You can claim conspiracy theory all you want to avoid, and deflect all those thoughts that something is off with these california wins.

              PB and MM are rigged for Cali and NY.  I've posted this several times and people have mocked me, but lo and behold look what happens here.

              It's a shame you guys still spend money on PB and MM when only two states are programmed to win jackpots.  But I guess every industry needs its rubes.

              I have done the same as you, and have also gotten mocked.   Most pass it off as a conspiracy theory,  due to being scared that maybe it has merit,  or maybe it doesn't....I guess we will see which state wins the MM or PB jackpot.

                Not Cali. Northern Cali. The powerball is always won up there. The powerball never lands in San Diego. If anything Los Angeles and up always get rained with the big pot.

                You would think most of the jackpot winners would be from the Los Angeles area, being easily the second largest city in the country and having an enormous metropolitan area. The majority of lottery tickets sold in the state are bought there. Yet the considerably smaller Bay area, home of the rich and powerful who control the highly influential Silicon Valley technology mecca, appears to produce most of the jackpot winners.

                  A nail salon worker, Vinh Nguyen was the winner. He's had played the lottery for 5 years. He bought 15 lines and played numbers that jumped into his head presumably as he was filling the betslips. Congratulations Mr Nguyen.

                  That money's gone fo ever

                    Valid point. The winner just picked his own numbers as he was filling in the slip. Talk about instant luck. You never know, it might hit anybody as long as you buy your tickets. At the end of the day, you gotta play to win.

                          I live here in Redwood City, just south a few miles of San Mateo where Vinh Nguyen won his $228.4 million in the Power Ball lottery. I've been playing the lottery since it started some years ago and never won much of anything. Some of you are posting this thing about California lottery players are always winning. It's not true. California is just a big state with a population of over 30 million. If you were to take all of the lottery players from all over the United States and they came to, let's say Rhode Island and they all played Power Ball, the odds would be exactly the same - 175 million to one. So, don't give me this thing about California, that it's rigged. I look forward to winning in Power Ball some day. If I didn't think I had a chance of winning, I wouldn't be playing the game. Good luck to all of the Lottery Post members in the next Power Ball game!
