          Your insistence that your original "call" was correct is quite annoying. Given that more than half of the 44 states that sell MM border a large body of water you might have well said that the MM winner would be female (currently 50.9%). Furthermore, there wasn't a MM jackpot winner last night. $1 million is nothing to sneeze at but is a far cry from $390 million.

          Please send your kindergarten teacher an apology letter.

              Each member would get about $38,000 a piece...

              $265,000,000 / 7000 = $37,857 give or take...

                  l just realized that my response to your post may have come across as being pretty harsh Ben. No harm was intended.  You yourself posted the point on 44 States bordering water. That should have alerted you to the fact that playful banter was afoot. Sorry it went over your head. Hope this experience has not soured you on the Forum. I meant no harm.

                    I spent $1 on one of those 50 combinations, but I cannot tell you which one.

                      I played 1 line out of 50 combinations, because it caught my eyes. Feel free to play them all.

                        Remember that basketball player that spent $10,000 on the lottery, and he did not win the jackpot? Spending $1 is enough for me.

                            It will not be won until ALL 258,890,850 number combinations are sold.  Bank on it!

                            .

                            Well, here's a thought I've never considered (and my apology and credit to those who have):

                            When we all go to get our lotto tickets, there should be, included in the ticket checker/computer, a program that can tell you:

                            "189 tickets are registered to play that combination for tonight's game."  (just as an example.)
                            (of course it would require you to check your numbers before the drawing even begins)

                            Then, of course, you'll be tempted to go back and play more tickets for that drawing.
                            It's up to [you] if you want to play more, but at least it's giving you a "second chance", so to speak, to jump back in line, if you want.

                            I suspect it won't take off, for one reason, because it would require the use of Cray computing, or the like.

                            I think this would 'add a level of fairness' to this game, never before seen, at the same time getting more money from you.

                            In the long run, it would decrease the amount of split pots. It would make every drawing a "truer" surprise.

                            I apologize if this is high-jacking the thread, but I'd really like to know from members,
                            what would be wrong with this idea.

                            Thanks, and Good luck to all in tonight's PB drawing.

                            • 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.

                              First of all, for a multi-state game like MegaMillions you're talking about more than forty states with more than a thousand terminals each which would have to update the main computer every minute which in turn would have to do the same to them.  All that computer time and energy to create data every minute that now takes at least an hour or two to compile after the drawings now.
