California will be holding the first drawing of the new Mega Millions in Hollywood!!!  I'm assuming this will be a temporary relocation.  Lets see how far the first jackpot run goes after CA joins.

    Well it will also help for record drawings. Using celebrities to draw the balls has finally began.

      The Good

      Party more money  more money , higher jack pot, can you say up to 500 million

      The addition of California means a much larger player-base for the Mega Millions game. More players, in turn, mean more game play, leading to faster-growing jackpots that can climb to new record levels much quicker. Mega Millions (formerly the Big Game) holds the record for the largest jackpot in North American history. It reached $363 million in May of 2000.

      The price of tickets will remain at $1.00 and Mega Millions drawings will continue to be held Tuesdays and Fridays at 11:00 p.m. Eastern Time, 10:00 p.m. Central Time, and 8:00 p.m. Pacific Time.

      Here are the nine ways that you can win a Mega Millions Prize:
      * Match five numbers plus the Mega Ball to win the jackpot.
      * Match the first five numbers, but not the Mega Ball, to win $250,000.
      * Match four numbers plus the Mega Ball to win $10,000.
      * Match four numbers, but not the Mega Ball, to win $150.
      * Match three numbers plus the Mega Ball to win $150.
      * Match two numbers plus the Mega Ball to win $10.
      * Match three numbers, but not the Mega Ball, to win $7.
      * Match one number plus the Mega Ball to win $3
      * Match just the Mega Ball to win $2

      California players will see somewhat different prizes. By California state law, all Mega Millions prizes in that state will be pari-mutuel, which means they will vary from one drawing to the next, depending on the numbers of California players who buy tickets and win at each prize level.

      The 12 Mega Millions states are California, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Texas, Virginia and Washington

        California joining will result in faster jackpot growth. I think it's a positive thing that California is joining Mega Millions.

          Well for it to get to the 300 million mark now takes 16 drawings or 8 weeks. I will be really curious after the 40 million level when CA joins how many fewer drawings it takes.

            I agree if the 100 million mark can be broached in say a month and a half I'll be thrilled with this new matrix!
