    I know the Station well. I used to Live in Riverdale, before moving to Florida. 

    I wish whomever well on their new found wealth.

    May have stopped there when I was out there for a 6 week training class in Paramus years ago.

    Was staying at the Residence Inn in Parsippany.

      Typically the states that win seem to be the ones that play the most collectively which makes alot of sense. Granted this isn't a guarantee since its a game of chance but on average a state that puts in more combinations will in turn yield a more positive outcome when it come to amount of winners. Which is why im taking a lottery break if you will especially from the MM.

      I agree.  Naturally the States with the biggest population of people and people playing the game has the best chances of winning it all.  So you are right there.  But the game being random won,  Naw. I don't believe that (jmo)   The lottery folks knows how many tickets has been sold to keep up with the jackpot right.  So now that everyone has ran there tickets through the computer, now the computer has a print out of all the numbers that is being played for the day, right.  Now lets say, their are 1,000000 people with the same identical numbers. Do you think the Lottery will drop their numbers?  I don't think so, if they did it would break the lottery and they wouldn't be able to pay it all out.  So what I'm saying is,  if to many people is riding the same numbers, those number will never fall.  Same applies to pick 4 and pick 3.   You will know when a number is consider slow or cold, that's a number that is being play by to many people and the lottery will not let that number drop.  If the number is fast or hot, that's a number that has a very few people playing and they will let it be drawn a lot.  This just makes sense.

        It was New Jersey -- undoubtedly someone got their legs broken.   Jester Laugh

        Perhaps the NJ Lottery Website will offer some explanation, such as . . .

          LP is finally catching on that only certain states can win.

          New Jersey needs their own lottery and it needs to be way harder than MM or PB.

          Ban them from MM and PB and give them a 11+1 matrix game with numbers that go from 1-999,999.

            Looks like ILL.  NY.  CA.  WA  &  TX are the States to be to winning it.

            ekem..... Illinois has had 1 winner a year for the last 3 years of 15,16,17, so if a person operates under the idea of the "same state(s) win over and over", that state would probably be the best choice. California did have 2 winners in 2017, but had a drought all the way back to 8/2014. New York had a winner in Sept of 17 and went over a year and a half back to JAN 2016 before its previous win. Washington shows a winner in July of 2016 & a Seattle,WA winner in March of 2016, no winners in 2015 or 2014 and nothing since July/2016. My wonderful state of Texas did have 2 winners in a short period of time (*3/17 & 11/16) nothing since then and the previous winner was back in June of 2014. *The winner in 3/2017 bought his ticket up in Arkansas, so realistically Texas has only sold 1 jackpot ticket since July 2014.

            Best of luck to us all

              As usual, I just missed only 6 numbers again. Hopefully it will be my turn tonight. I have waited for so long.

                  lol.  I have some news for you:  If you remove all the states that have won jackpots, Mega Millions would no longer exist, because there wouldn't be enough ticket sales to support a game with a starting jackpot of $40 million.

                  If you want to be able to buy tickets for such a huge jackpot in less-populated states like Idaho and Minnesota you need to put up with including highly-populated states that will win the jackpot more often.  That's just simple mathematics.

                  Also, New Jersey does already have its own lottery and its own NJ-only games. They do pretty well already, I play them myself all the time.

                   

                  Check the State Lottery Report Card
                  What grade did your lottery earn?

                          Good luck to the winner anyways.
