How many times did each STATE, in Mega Millions, win?  Or, where can I go to find this answer out.

    Probably the official USA Mega Millions site.  They have all the past results listed there.

      You can figure it out, if you want to do a little work.  Go here, enter the count per state into a spreadsheet, and then go to the next drawing.

      Come to think of it, I really should just program that feature into USA Mega so that people don't have to do it by hand.  I'll have to rememeber that for the next time I update the site.  Thanks.

        Megs Millions used to be called the Big Game. I know California was the last state to become a MM state.  I don' know if all the others were in it from the start, but if they weren't, and you're data mining for frequency of winners, you'd have to consider each state relative to the amount of time they've been a MM state.

        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

        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.

            Actually, a much better place would be to go to USA Mega and click on "Where to Play".
