It always surprises me when I look back at the payout for Maryland Megamillion participants. Knowing that the majority of players buy random picks, this breakdown leaves me to wonder about the randomness in our machines.

Maryland had 107 people to win $150.00. (Amazing). Makes you not want to play megamillion here.

I was wondering just how bad or how good all of the other participating States breakdown on their winners look.

      Yes Raven.

      Does this surprise you, or am I being too critical about the slice of the pie that Maryland winners get?

        Texas had 166 $150 winners.

        Remember, the odds of a 3+1 hit are 13,781 to 1, and a 4+0 hit are 15,313 to 1. If I were just playing for that, Pick 3 would look mighty good. LOL.

          You bring up an interesting point rcbbuckeye.

          I would also be interested in knowing just how many tickets were acually sold.

            Figure out the percentage! Thumbs Up

            Nationwide Ticket Sales=21,088,618

            Maryland Ticket Sales=859,298

            The percentage for Maryland looks to be inline with the Nationwide percentage.

            PS: Washington had 400,000 in Ticket Sales and two 5+0 Winners!

              WOW, thanks Raven.

              My conclusion from this.

              It takes a lot of luck to win the MegaMillion, and I'm wasting my money.

              No more mega for me.

                Litebets this was only a 20 million dollar pot. Maryland has had many 5-4-3-2-1 winners most weeks and lots of 5+0 winners in the last few years.

                Now that we have powerball more people probably gonna bet on the larger powerball pot instead of the smaller mega mil.

                  Thanks for your comment Four4me.

                  I've always been a little bit of a skeptic when it comes to Megamillion, I guess that is why I use to travel to other States or DC to play Powerball before it came to our GREAT State. (I have cashed in more with Powerball than I have with Mega.)

                  I don't particularly like Powerballs payout on the lower tiers, unless playing powerplay.

                    Its all in the numbers i have won more with mega than powerball.

                          I think I'll continue contributing to the lottery pool I participate in. Groups seem to do fairly well in other States.

                          Our group cashed in $7.00 last week...Whoopee, we're on our way.

                            I know it's just numbers and a similar play, but somehow I can't  quite get a reading on MegaMillions as I do occasionally on Powerball. Perhaps with more practice . . . .

                              Thanks for your comment winlotta. I nooticed you have been doing very well on Maddog's MM/PB challenges. I'm feeling pretty confident that you are on the right track. Maybe, after you have practiced for awhile, you can teach us all a few things about MM.

                              Good luck Thumbs Up

                              I actual brought tickets Friday night, more out of habit, and surprisingly....cashed in nothing!!
