    I think California needs to be kicked out of Mega millions honestly.  Let them have their own lottery so all 38,000,000 residents can win every single drawing.  Must be some good cheat codes floating around California.

      There were two JP winners.....not just California

       

      Winning Tickets From 10/16/2012 Were Sold:
      Match 5 + 1 Jackpot Winners: California(1) and
      Massachusetts(1)

      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

      Lep

      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.

          Cheat codes?

          I believe RJOH eloquently remarked on this subject a week or so ago in a similar setting, in another thread. He clearly demonstrated why the wins were greater. The population is considerably higher, thus more wins.

                  The head of the Texas lottery told commissioners that California is joining Powerball soon.

                  Now they can win both games!

                        Now they can win both games!

                        Here is Texas lottery transcript about California joining Powerball:

                             AGENDA ITEM NO. VIII

                                  8                 CHAIRMAN WILLIAMSON:  The next item is the

                                  9   report by the Executive Director and/or possible

                                 10   discussion and/or action on the agency's operational

                                 11   status, agency procedures, awards and FTE status.

                                 12                 Gary, this is also your item.

                                 13                 MR. GRIEF:  Commissioners, other than the

                                 14   items in your notebook, I do have one item I would like

                                 15   to report on this morning.

                                 16                 Last week I participated in the World

                                 17   Lottery Summit 2012.  This was a joint venture between

                                 18   the World Lottery Association, otherwise know as WLA,

                                 19   and the North American Association of State and

                                 20   Provincial Lotteries, know as NASPL.  This event was

                                 21   hosted by Lotto Quebec, and it featured the largest

                                 22   lottery industry trade show in history.  The summit also

                                 23   involved a three-day business program involving leaders

                                 24   from the international lottery community as well as some

                                 25   very notable outside speakers as well.
                                                                                               25



                                  1                 I participated in one session which was

                                  2   called a lottery pep talk in which I moderated a

                                  3   discussion between the directors of the Mexico, the

                                  4   French and the Kentucky lotteries.  This session

                                  5   demonstrated how the mission and values of governmental

                                  6   lotteries around the world are very similar but, even

                                  7   more important, very critical to our role in trying to

                                  8   fend off the competition from the growing number of

                                  9   gambling entities in the private sector.

                                 10                 A meeting of the Mega Millions group, of

                                 11   which I'm a lead director, also occurred during this

                                 12   conference.  And I'm pleased to report that the

                                 13   initiative that I'm spearheading to try to consolidate

                                 14   Mega Millions and the Multi-State Lottery Association

                                 15   which oversees Powerball is still active, and we're

                                 16   making slow but steady progress in that regard.

                                 17                 Also of note, MUSL, which does oversee the

                                 18   Powerball game, took a vote in their meeting during the

                                 19   week to allow the State of California to begin selling

                                 20   Powerball around January of next year.  And California

                                 21   has not been selling Powerball up to this point.

                                 22                 No changes to the Powerball game, no

                                 23   changes to the matrix are anticipated.  My understanding

                                 24   is, that game is geared to handle the influx of

                                 25   population from California.  And the expectation is that
                                                                                               26



                                  1   jackpots will grow faster ........

                          I think California needs to be kicked out of Mega millions honestly.  Let them have their own lottery so all 38,000,000 residents can win every single drawing.  Must be some good cheat codes floating around California.

                          Do you really believe there are such things as lottery cheat codes?  If you do, how do you explain the winners being all different and unrelated?  Do you think these so called "cheaters" are fair minded people who once they win pass these codes on to other randomly chosen lottery players in their state?

                           * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *
