Since The Big Game became Mega Millions, there has never been two jackpot winners sharing the jackpot.  Now, it happens when the jp is only $35 million!  Just goes to show how anything can happen, I guess.

      Todd,

      I may be wrong but I thought there was another multiple  winner in mega millions.  I think its was a drawing where 3 tickets won and one guy had 2 of the three tickets.  I cant remember the date, I'm thinking 2003 one winner was from Michigan I think.

          California's on a roll. Hope this will stop the nay sayers about not wanting Mega Millions in their State. ( I wonder when it's coming back to Maryland?) Skeptical

              Well, in one odd way the subject line of this topic was correct:  there have never been TWO Mega Millions winners before -- the drawing on Nov. 11, 2003 had THREE winners!  Big Grin

                Some of us said this would never happen this way with a jackpot this small.  I'm guessing this really fooled/shocked a lot of us.

                    I agree with Todd in that the result of this MM drawing tells us once again that anything can happen in lottery. Otherwise, I doubt if one could understand the psychology of those who have often been in such jackpot games as MM or PB. In this sense, I guess, it might make many MM/PB players slightly more optimistic than before.

                    Congrats to the CA and MI winners even though each share may not be as big as usual.

                        The odds of more than 1 winner are astronomically higher than a ticket winning the lottery.

                         

                        It was bound to happen.

                            I don't think it's that odd or strange that a lower jackpot was won by more then one person. I agree with Prob that it was bound to happen sometime. We can't always have huge jackpots, which is fine with me.

                            Dance like no one is watching.

                              It's totally random. Well, congratulations to CA and MI for winning the MM jackpot. However, CA could lose their rights in playing MM effective on Friday's draw. If that's the case, well CA had their last MM draw.
