Every time I check the MM site, I see a winner from CA.  There's gotta be alot of people playing in CA, must be cause of the cost of living.

      I'm running with scissors even as we speak.

      We are one wild and crazy state.

      But, yeah, the ginormous population is the main reason.  Although, the cost of living (as it is in NY) is absurdly high here.  You have to win three jackpots a year just to pay the mortgage.

        That and California doesn't have Powerball.

        By California law, all payouts are all pari-mutuel. I guess Powerball was not willing to accomodate like Mega Millions was.

        California didn't get Mega Millions until 2005.

        Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

        In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

          For being such a populous state it's always surprising to me that our average per capita lottery sales are only around $93.00 a year.

            Another three winners from MM last night.  I was telling my wife, we need to get someone to buy CA tickets on a constant basis.

                  Where did you get your statistics?  Over what time period does that chart represent?   Just curious, it has some interesting data.

                    That really surprises me, would have though it several times that.   Eek  Their huge population is doing the magic.  Group Hug

                        Where did you get your statistics?  Over what time period does that chart represent?   Just curious, it has some interesting data.

                        The stats are for the 2012 season...I track them every year out of curiosity...

                        California by being paramutual,,,is only averaging $194,500+ per 5+0 hits vs. $250,000 on all the other MM hits...
