    Maybe I didn't make myself clear the first time.

    There will be more Californians (hordes) buying tickets on the first draw than on the subsequent draws until the jp reaches the higher ranges again.

    So let me reiterate:

    It will be won in California on the first draw, April 10th.

    If I'm wrong about this, I vow not to eat any pomegranates for 5 years.

          I think we will see lots of Cali wins

            I think someone from Californa could win on the first draw, I bet loads of people will buy them for the first draw.

                Like Rdgnr said, it's a good possibility that California might win the very first night...just think about how many powerball tickets are going to be purchased in California for that draw???? Someone there stand a chance on drawing the winning combination, but then again, I've learned with lotteries, expect the unexpected.....Who knows? Maybe Lady Luck might decide to fool everyone and cast her magic luck dust on some veryyyyyy sweeeet lady here in South Carolina <SMILE>

                CinCin where are you? hope everything is okay come back soon Smiley

                  Assuming that neither Powerball or Mega Millions are won and re-set,

                  the Powerball jackpot will be $80 million for the Wednesday, April 10th drawing

                  Mega Millions will be about $56 million for the Tuesday, April 9th drawing.

                  When Californians have a choice, it would be interesting to see how many people will decide to buy $2 Powerball tickets instead of the $1 Mega Millions tickets when the jackpots will be close to the same amount and the odds of winning are about the same.

                  Would you spend $2 for a chance at $80 million or spend $1 for a chance at $56 million?

                    Both of course! A $3 investment for $136 million, sounds enticing to me.  Hyper

                      winning Powerball and Mega Millions in the same week would be PRICELESS.

                            The Powerball jackpot popped again and is back at $40 million while Mega Millions is at $42 million. If it doesn't pop again Powerball will be $60 million for the first  drawing California will be able to buy tickets starting on April 8th.
