Congratulations to that lucky winner! I wonder who we will be congratulating for the Powerball jackpot?

Someone from NY or CA.  The two big games (PB and MM) are rigged for those two states.

If you live elsewhere, please support your state lottery and stop throwing away money for these games.

      If a person gets angry that someone else (in a different state or not) won a game that has odds of 1 in millions, that person should not be playing in the first place.

      For that person really has no inkling of what the odds really are.

      It's ok to dream of winning (Thrifty), but to expect to win?

      It was a joke.

      There are two different lottery curses out there and I'm afflicted by the "Can't win" curse anyway.

          I only play my state games (mostly, I did have a MM this last draw)

          But all the winners are sold in the northern counties,  Bergen, Essex and Hudson, close to NYC.

          Near the crowds but far from me.

            I'm buying extra tickets to help make that happen.

              I don't get it, why do you all give congrats to these winners?  They just won YOUR Mega Millions, you should be pissed! LOL

              The MegaMillions jackpot doesn't belongs to anyone until they buy the winning ticket.  Wink

                Louie, Oklahoma doesn't have a state lotto jackpot game(I wish we did) I did post the question on their Facebook page asking if this is something the state would consider in the future their response is below.

                OKLC "We would love to have an in-state lotto game similar to what other states have. Unfortunately, the current legislative restrictions we operate under and limited sales in our state make it nearly impossible to fund a game like this".

                How about getting games that will help increase ticket sales.

                  To the whiners that say they wish MM and PB would pay several million dollar prizes instead of one big prize, there's four million dollar winners right there (should be five). In fact, people buy the tickets to these game because of the big prize.

                  Now you have that stupid Millionaire Monopoly game. $5 a tic.

                  Eat it up!

                  Monopoly Millionaires' Club top prize is $21M for Friday drawing with 14 Millionaires to be created, if the top prize is won? The millionaires frenzy starts at $25M top prize.

                    Yes. Buying more lottery tickets increases your chances of winning the lottery. California and New York lottery players spend money like hell on the lottery. It is the big difference.

                      You have zero losses, if you do not play the lottery. I do not mind donating $1 to Mega Millions. They say that it helps education?LOL

                        You are playing the lottery because you believe that you can win SOMEDAY?

                          Your first lottery ticket improves your chances of winning the jackpot to infinity relative to having zero chances of winning.

                           

                          It is always smart to play the lottery SOMEDAY.
