    Congrats to the Jersey winner.

    Odds of 302 million to one and yet some people get upset because they didn't win. Just by being on this site with all the lottery information available you would think they'd no better. 

    Bang Head

    Truth be known those are the players the lotteries love.

    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any. So many systems, so many theories, so few jackpot winners. 

    Lep

    There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

      I hear Tipton has ties in New Jersey.

      The Mega Millions drawings are held in Georgia, so I'm not sure what New Jersey ties would do for him.

        yeah I agree with this so much. I was really thinking that 59 would strike thrice but then I seconded guessed myself. Originally was going to play 11-26-28-31-59 but I was like thinking nope that's not going to hit so i choose two tickets 8-21-31-32-56 and 4-21-31-32-56 respectfully. Granted I still wouldn't have won but 100+ feels better than zero bucks lol. But my money was worth the dream. I even spent a few hrs looking for the right lawyers in my local area. Again big congrats to all who won. God bless folks.

        P.S I also played (5) quick picks and I didn't have a single number.

          Sales were high in California.  Second prize was $3.2 mil last Friday when someone won it. By Tues it was up to $400k and last nite $ 1.1 M.  Normally the pot increases only $100-$200k a roll.

            It's human nature. We like to take swipe at States that "Wins all the time" but still don't stop us from buying $2 ticket. 

            It's fun to talk about stuff like that to keep the conversation going. No conspiracy here but you know people will talk good or bad even with the odds well 10 million to one, will still find a way to complain about price or something Lol. Anyways congratulations to the winner.

                For the people who live in the loosing states you have a better luck playing you own numbers than a quick.

                We have just 1 state lottery here. Jackpot starts $20,000 , it stays $20,000 for 3 draws before price is increased with $4,000.

                Draw is Computer draw, i hate it. The scratch cards are even worse, $20 to win $250,000 top price with only 2 top prices. Whiles some states $20 for 1 million or even high price here it's different here.

                So i stick with Lucky for life and the occasional Powerball and mega millions.

                  What's the point of playing if someone else is going to win it

                  another new jerseyan nice. they have many winner's same as at times nc cali.

                  congrats.

                   

                  and LOL @ Toronto. Even if 100 to 200 people won all fifty states, a Smileyfew in each state ya know, for 4 numbers and MM or PB number there would be enough$$$ cash,to keep making uncle sam happy! I wish more would win, when it's so high, but that only happend months ago when many won across the states/diff states.

                  -

                  I hate seeing only 1 singular win(when it's over 100 mill $) but congrats... This when my dad LOL say it's rigged so don't play, cassie, when only "1"win over 100 mill and only 1 person won.he says,"its' rigged,"because more can win and still have enough to go around."Dad says, "When people stop "foolishly"playing it each week, it will change where we will see more winner's when it's over a certain amount." LOL

                      the payouts are terrible especially at 2 dollars ticket.....$10 for picking 3/70 numbers?   NY pays over $20 for 3/5 in a 5/39. I hit 4/5 3 years ago in Mega and won $152. Mega now pays 4/5..$500 but last month I hit 4/5 in 5/39 and won $455. Ridiculous.

                      It's always possible that I'm wrong~

                      But that's never at the top of my list of possibilities.

                        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.

                        Todd, since you live in New Jersey, are you the lucky player or a member of a lucky pool? 

                         That would be sweet!

                            I predict that the winner or winners will have a very interesting life story or stories to tell the World. 

                             The winner or winners are getting the professional advice and help they will need. 

                             I wish the winner had been Todd.
