Your lottery tells players if the tickets were self or QPs?  wow thats so cool.  Even though I plan to play my own numbers forever  I would love to know what type the CA winners were.

lottocalgal,

This is for the last two years for Illinois Litle Lotto, 2008 to 2009.Each state and game is different of course, but it appears this one is pretty consistent.

As of today, Feb 17, for 2010 its tied 16-16 between QP and Player Picks (PS, Player's Selections)

These were the 2008 results:

146 Jackpots

120 QP   82.19%

91 PS      62.32%

(includes shared jackpots)

2008 was a leap year. So in 366 days jackpots were paid out 146 times or every 2.506 days

82.19% of the jackpot winners were QP

62.32% were player's selections, or PS

2009

365 drawings, 157 jackpots, a hit every 2.32 days.

To date:

157 Jackpots

132 QP   84.07%

87 PS      55.41%

Total jackpot money paid out to date: $33,295,000

Here's the results for 2008, 2009, and combined:

Two years combined

731 drawings

303 Jackpots

252 QP  83.16%

178 PS   58.74%

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.

    I am beginning to wonder for the last several weeks, why the majority of the winners of MM/SL & Fantasy 5 have been from Northern CA..hmmmmmWink; for example last night's MM, two winners from Redwood City and Oakland split the MM jackpot of $269, 500; hitting 5 numbers, minus the mega number.

     Is there more players from Northern CA than Southern CA??? What?

        Or maybe all the Carol Doda fans are players.......

        Carol Doda was an exotic dancer, a very well "endowed" dancer, who was the station I.D. for Channel 36 in San Jose in the 1970s......

        The station ID was her in a tight black turtleneck sweater and she said,

        "This is the perfect 36 in San Jose"

              rdgrnr,

              "The perfect 36" gal had quite a following! What other station had people looking forward to the station ID?

              badboyz00z,

              Each states' lottery individual website, I guess.

              I've tracked the Illinois pick 5 day by day.

                Wow, it would sure be nice to get those kinds of stats.

                Here, you never know how many winners there were altogether, if it was a QP or not (unless it's the jackpot), or how many smaller prizes were won. They will only say if the jackpot was won, or the second prize (sometimes there's several won in a draw, and they will tell what area of the state they each were in), but nothing beyond that. I suppose one could write their state lottery and ask.

                  Talk about odd feelings

                  I always think the same thing about Southern CA.  It seems that for years all the winners come from LA county.  then I did the demographics for southern VS northern, and there are WAY more people in LA county vs lets say Alameda county  something like  10 million to 3 million.

                  Its only recently that Northern california is getting a few winners.  I was feeling wierd about it.  But I guess it has to be spreaded around a bit.    I used to drive to Santa clara county because most of the winners seems to come from there.  I even did it last week and bought a single ticket in many 7 elevens and the one store I DIDNT go to, had the winner.  The bad news?  Its a 7 eleven I normally go to when I visit a Frys electronic store in the same neighborhood.    It goes to show, it really doesnt matter where you play because if its your time to win you will.

                    In Illinois it's Chicago and in Florida it's Miami.

                    It sure seems like a "lopsided" number of winners come from there, but when you factor in population it makes sense.

                    lottocalgal,

                    Is KARA in Santa Clara still the best oldies station ever, or did they change their format.

                    I was stationed at Ft Ord and lived in Monterey.....every summer I wish I was still there!

                    I remember pulling into a gas station on July 4th weekend (this was way before self-serve) and the guy who came out to pump the gas was wearing a parka.

                      Okay, so I was just noticing something.  States have their 5of 6 plus bonus games and the pick five ( or our Fantasy Five) games right?  Okay,  the 5/49 plus a bonus almost ALWAYS have 3 or 4 people win 5 without the bonus numbers. ,giving them a small share of around 20-30K, right?

                      Now, you take the Fantasy Five, which doesn't have a bonus number and only 39 numbers.  There is almost always ONLY one winner that wins the 50 to 350K jackpot. 

                      Can anyone explain why that is?  to me, I would think with better odds, you would have more 5 of 5 winners for Fantasy.  It is that kind of scenario that makes me wonder if the lottery outcome of games really are  manipulated somehow.  I have only seen   multiple Fantasy Fiive winners when there is a large jackpot like 300-400K.   I scratch my head and go Hmmmmm.

                      I hate to get all Conspiracy Theory about things  but I wonder.

                      lottogal, I just whent hmmmm with the 707 in New York twice and In New Jersey the same day; as well as other things I am noticing!

                      forget what "they" say about youWhat you say about you?...

                      Now, does it count??

                        I think i know why i wrote about this 7 years ago...

                        the reason i think is because: the Pick6/49 plays twice a day it doesnt play everyday so is a lot easier than a Pick5/39 that plays everyday...A game is more difficult if is played everyday than it is played twice a week or 3 times a week...At least 1 find them more difficult the ones that play everyday...

                        I dont know how come i havent mentioned it here...To what level is the difficulty i dont know...

                            Well in illiois the 6/52 is three times a week since Mondays were added.

                            But on no way, shape, or form is a 5/39 game played everyday more difficult than any 6/49 game no matter the game frequency.

                              Well in illiois the 6/52 is three times a week since Mondays were added.

                              But on no way, shape, or form is a 5/39 game played everyday more difficult than any 6/49 game no matter the game frequency.

                              Sorry Pumpi, I have to Agree with the Coin!!

                              forget what "they" say about youWhat you say about you?...
