Before MegaMillions was introduced in CA, SLP was huge. The jackpot amount easily reached 40~50 millions in a few weeks. I really miss that time.
California is on the brink of bankrupcy. It's really bad in every part of the public sectors. And I don't like it when the lottery got hit, too.
See, MM doesn't guarantee a winner in Califonia every time. And I think lottery commision doesn't really care as long as people are buying the tickets. Now SLP is practically an afterthought. Gone are the days of SLP reaching 40 millions or more, I guess. Yes, there was a jackpot for 76 million dollars last week, and I fear that SLP won't go up to that amount ever again. Less and less people will play SLP. Seriously, people don't like low jackpot amount. Of course, some will argue that winning a few millions after tax is much better than suddely gaining 40~50 million bucks, because smaller prize is easier to manage.
But for me, I want something big. No, not like some 200 to 300 million dollar jackpots.
