How come all or most of the winners are further away from georgia. I never heard of anyone from georgia winning the mega millions or any other jackpot games. If I am wrong, then I stand corrected. Can someone answer me this, IS IT RIGGED FOR PLAYERS FURTHER AWAY FROM GEORGIA TO WIN OR IS IT JUST PURE LUCK? I am anxious to hear any feed back.

    There have been at least 2 mega million winners from GA, the last one being this past January.

      OK, but the key is "only 2 winners". Majority of the winners are not in Georgia. Doesn't that make you wonder if it is rigged for those states further from Georgia to have winners all time or the majority of time?

        No, Mega Millions is not rigged.  If it were a computerized drawing there would always be lingering suspicion, but since it's a mechanical ball drawing, the likelihood is practically nil.  Besides, the drawing is held in Atlanta, and if given the choice, I'm sure the Georgia lottery personnel who operate the lottery would not want to have the winners be from outside of Georgia, since the winner's home state brings home some nice tax revenue.

          Thanks Todd, you just made me feel more confident about playing the Mega Millions game. Have a blessed day and good luck to you.

            Here is the breakdown of MM jackpot winners since 2003. As you can see GA has the second most MM jackpot winners. NJ, which has the second highest sales in MM, has only had three winners since 2003!!??!!

                GA has 3 major Interstate Highways which intersect in Atlanta, I-85, I-75, I-20 so anyone traveling through could purchase a jackpot ticket.  Also heard that Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport will be putting in kiosks to sell tickets. 

                We thank everyone for our education dollars!!! 

                Good luck to everyone!

                    Nobody from Illinois (where I play MM when it's bigger than Powerball) has won a Mega Millions jackpot since September 27, 2002.

                        I would like to be the first one from CA, and also the one to claim the highest single jackpot!

                          I don't get the focus on which state wins. I could really care less where the winners came from unless I'm one of them. It's not like rooting for a sports team to win. It would be like betting on a horse since if the horse wins then you win.

                              I agree as to not caring which state wins as long as it is me...or someone who will be a good steward with such a blessing and not blow the money on debauchery.
