Man I'd hate to be a lottery player in California seeing what their state pays for a 5 of 5 or even 4 of 5 compared to the majority of  other participating states.

Majority? NO, ALL other states pay the same fixed payouts. But atleast they don't have any (state) taxes on the winnings.

    Wow: 2 years? During that time a female could have 2 kids back to back and still have some change left.This has been a slow growing jackpot- but l am not complaining. Like bread rising in the oven, a jackpot rising with many "000's" is music to the hearts and ears of the playing horde.When you about to unload your prize-  Come to rest in...

            .

            If they don't pay 1 million for 5/5, then that sure is news to me.

            Thanks for the warning.

            I'd planned a trip out that way, for later this year.

            How do you like that?  Is that what paramutual (paramutuel?) means?
            That they don't pay as much as other states?   
            Well, it may as well mean that.

            Is it too much trouble for someone in their marketing department to advertise: 
            "We DON'T pay as much as other states for hitting 5 out of 5 numbers" ?

            • Don't chase the numbers you play.
            • Play only numbers you've already played, plus however many random picks.
            • But, ALWAYS the regular numbers you play.  This will make you a winner, not a chaser.

                Yes, I agree 100%.  It sucks that they don't have Powerplay or Megaplier.  Sometimes I cringe when I see how 'low' the five numbers pay.  Occasionally, or should I say rarely, it will pay more than someone who doesn't spend the extra dollar.

                California constantly wins the jackpot,  why should they get even more of everyone else's money?

                  Patriot I am a Californian and I do not win constantly. My numbers are just as good as anybody else's.

                   pickone4me, you and I are playing against each and every other player. May your numbers be drawn soon.

                      Sometimes they pay more, far more even than $1M. Most of the time though they pay far less. I saw one of the drawings it only paid a little over $100,000 for a 5 + 0.

                        While out today, I bought my lottery tickets for the upcoming draws.

                        I bought a $5 Mega, 1 NY lotto and a $2 Powerball. I also purchased a 10 game Quick Draw (Keno type game in NY) and hit for $45 in one of the games. After I cahed the ticket, I bought another $5 Mega Millions ticket.

                        So....I have 10 lines for Tuesday's Mega drawing.

                        Hoping for the best! See Ya!Group HugCheersBananaHyperDanceParty

                            Oh yes because tiny little Wisconsin totally should have more winners than the state that has over 10% of the US population in it.

                              It doesn't matter where you live (or happen to visit) and buy the winning ticket.

                              As with the TN Powerball ticket, he wasn't going to stop and buy tickets. Only because his wife called him did he get them. On top of that, he bought only four quick pick tickets where some people buy 10-20 or 50 or more and win squat.

                              So, it doesn't matter where you are, who you are or how many tickets you buy. The only thing that matters are how many numbers you match. Period!
