        Mega Millions started with six states, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan and Virginia.  Illinois is a founding member.

        And 12-21-12 is a Friday, a Mega Millions draw day.  I'll have 12 as the Mega Ball number, and 12, 20, and 21 on the white ball side.

          sully,

          You're killing me with the 12-21-2012!

          _________________________________

          Mega Millions useed to be The Big Game.

          Longarm has it right.

          The drawings used to be held in Atlanta.

          This is from the MM FAQ page:

          3. How was Mega Millions created?

          The history of Mega Millions is as exciting as playing the game! Following a record $363 million Big Game jackpot in 2000, interest in multi-state games was at an all-time high. And as interest in the multi-state games grew, so did the participants. In May 2002, New York and Ohio joined Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey and Virginia to create Mega Millions!

          Sales for the country's newest multi-state jackpot game began on May 15, 2002, and the first drawing was May 17, 2002. Mega Millions jackpots start at $12 million and, with millions of people playing, jackpots can roll to even higher levels at a faster rate.

          It didn't take long for players in other states to join the mega fun! By September 2002, Washington had joined Mega Millions and in December 2003, Texas began offering the game to its players. In June 2005, California became the 12th member, solidifying Mega Millions as the country's most widely played multi-state jackpot game.

          On January 31, 2010, 23 more state lotteries joined Mega Millions as an historic cross-selling agreement between Mega Millions and Powerball went into effect.

          ______________________________________________

          A female pharmacist from Illinois won a MM jackpot a couple of years ago. She hired professional make up people to disguise her for the press conference because she said some people would sue her for malpractice when they leanred she won a jackpot.

          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'm sorry but I don't think you have a valid complaint. There are states out there that have never won Mega Millions or Powerball at all and just recently (Dec 11th 2010) someone won the Powerball jackpot in Illinois.

                  GRRRR@ the beast monster and Internet Explorer! Ha I tried to respond to this last night.

                  When I moved to IL I just knew that we had MM and that it was a multi-state game. I'm not real big on finding out the history of things but thanks Longarm and Coin Toss for the info.
