These are some of the states I don't like to see win, I was just wondering which state is the number one state people don't like to see win. I choose California but I don't care to much for New York or Texas either.

    Both New York and Georgia (but cant vote for both so I voted for NY). These states have had too many winners in the last two years. Ohio is also getting a lot of winners. How come the machines in Georgia and Ohio produce combinations which consistenly are drawn in MM? New Jersey, at present with the second highest sales in MM, just doesnt get as many winners. I guess the machines in NJ just arent lucky Unhappy.

    But going back to the question, I would like any state without state tax on lottery winnings to have winners.

    Here is the distribution of winners from the past two years.

      I think the amount of winners each state has just for the powerball being correct will give you an idea where a lot of winners will come from for PB. The same may hold true for MM. I went to the PB site last week after the winners were posted for each state and noticed that PA had around 300,000 winners just for the powerball. There were several states with around a 100,000. I believe PA has all ready had about 8 PB jackpot winners in just 2-2-1/2 years of being in PB and they will probably end up the leader since it appears by those numbers they are outselling any other one state 3 to 1.

        Sorry PA.  It drives me nuts.  IN is also one of those states that win all the time.  Give the smaller states a chance!

        How are you going to win if you don't play?

          I don't know about NY but the folks here in GA are just smart! When I win the Mega Millions that will be one more mark in the GA corner. The two state that I hate most are NY an CA. But I choose NY because of their stupidity of electing Hitlery Clinton to the senate. -Bonnie

            That's crazy IL is way over due for a winner. As long as it's not from the Chicago area.Smile I always hate it when Chicago wins the state lottery everytime.

              and to think she's thinking of a presidential run in 2008.

               personally i wish colin powell would run.  he'd definitely get my vote.

              I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

                  I'd hate to see any Coloradoans win ..... they're pretty stingyguts with the amount of water they allow to come down the Rio Grande during snow melt.  That, and the fact the only winner they've ever had that I recall was Hollywood Henderson.  Guy was already in the chips pretty well from catching futballs and whatnot.  If Colorado's going to funnel their piece of the luck off to ex Dallas Coyboy jocks they need a comeuppance.

                  Then there's Arizona over there letting their water flow off into the Pacific instead of into the Gulf of Mexico where it belongs.  I'd hate to see them win anything.  No telling what they'd do with it.

                  I'd be willing to let Texas have a few more wins if they'd not be so uptight about whether we release enough water to them and drop all that annual whining and complaining in the Federal Courthouse.

                    I thought Hollywood Henderson hit Lotto TX.

                      Could be.  My brain began sloughing off a lot of trivia it didn't think it was going to find useful a few years ago.  Maybe that was caught up in some larger package that didn't make the cut.

                      Or maybe you're remembering wrong.  I doubt either of us cares enough to try to chase it down.

                        Until I saw the table I was under the impression that GA does not win all that often.  The GA wins seem few IMHO.

                          The first drawing for California in Mega Millions Drawing will be in Hollywood, CA starting on June 24, 2005. I want to see California win their own Mega Millions jackpot of one winner of at least 363 million or more. I don't want to see other states win.

                            Washington (providing it's not me that's the winner). Nothing is more annoying than watching some fool on tv gloat especially as it would be local news also.
