      that's horrible! Can you imagine matching 5 without the Powerball and finding out you're only getting 280K? The only good thing about being a California lottery player is no state tax on lottery winnings. If Cali ever decided to tax lottery winnings, Cali would be the worst place in the nation to play.

        California is operating on a system that was approved by the voters.Just the other day some State paid out multi millions for pick 4 winners when the money collected was much less than that which was paid out. When the State lottery functions in the Red, major trouble looms.California knows about deficits. ...

          Maybe you should go back and read your last thread whining about California's parimutuel payouts. You could also pay attention to what you just posted, and see that of 87,389 winning tickets 349 paid about 10% more than they would have in other states. Only 2 of the 87,389 got less than they would have in other states.

          The average payouts for California players will be the same as the payouts for players in non-parimutuel states. Unlike those other states, players in California will have the option of paying attention to recent results and making a point of playing when the payout is likely to be more than the standard payout in other states.

          Everybody, everwhere, has the option of not playing if they don't like the rules or the likely prizes.

               Correct me if I am wrong, but the voter approval was before either Mega Millions or Powerball were available. The laws need to be amended for the national platform.

               I'm sure the other states are having thier financial up and downs also, but have not dumped the lottery. That would lead me to believe that they are making money the long run.

              Well lets see..

              2 players - 5 of 5 winners did not recieve 2 x $719,370 = $1,438,740 from the standard model.

              4 players - 4 of 4 w/pb recieved 4 x $1,142 = $4,568 greated than the standard model.

              138 players - 4 of 4 recieved 138 x $9 = $1242 greater than the standard model.

              207 players - 3 of 3 w/pb recieved 207 x $14 = $2,898 greater than the standard model.

              So....

              $1,438,740 less than the standard model

              $8,708 greater than the standard model

              ________________

              $ 1,430,032 dollars not awarded to the California winners for the last draw..........Highway robbery!!!!

              Second guess when to play ????? Why should you have to ( because the state wants to jack more of your money) ???

              Don't play ???? That will fix things. *L*

                The lottery Committee meets on a regular basis in an open forum & invites participation.Of every Dollar played-97 cents goes back to the education system along with prizes.I take it that the amendments that you mentioned have already been addressed. Mega millions has been in the State for quite awhile. I have yet to hear of complaints from the State's residents of the lottery being " unfair"- its always coming from outsiders.

                  Hi,

                    Thanks for taking the time to reply. However, consider this as a California resident who considers the Mega Millions and Powerball payout structure as unfair as compared to the numerous other states.

                    Extrapolating the figues for Powerball in my previous post..

                  $1,430,032 short fall for winners x 104 draws per year = $14,872,332 annually. For a billion dollar industry, is this enough to risk the reputation of the California lotterry on?

                   I can appreciate that you and others associated with the lottery are supportive of the current status.

                   However, doing so shows that there is apparently a conflict of interest in having the integrity to do the right thing...

                  Awarding the winners what is standard across the industry.

                  Getting outdated paramutel laws amended for a national platform.

                  These are only my opinions.

                    As a concerned non citizen of California- l would submit to you that you write the State Lottery Commission asking these questions.  I am sure this has been addressed in the past and the answers should be forthcoming. There is a reason why California has not followed the other States in their payout structure,  but hearing it from them may allow you to pull your horns in...in other words" get out of beast mode".

                      When I saw that the 2 second prize winners each won only $280,630 my jaw dropped. I know most of us will never hit the second prize but still....

                        hitting 5 without the Powerball is probably a once in a life time event, you should get at least a million dollars for it in my opinion.

                          Earlier you posted that California does not have a State Tax on the Lottery.  If you factor in what the other States taxes haul  in from their winners- you would see the way California operates. You cant have it both ways.
                          Ultimately the question should be " will l ever win and if l did, would l moan about what l got in return from putting down a buck?"

                            you can have it both ways. There are states that don't tax lottery winnings and payout a million for 5 without the Powerball.

                            "Ultimately the question should be " will l ever win and if l did, would l moan about what l got in return from putting down a buck?"

                            Please tell me where someone can buy Powerball tickets for one dollar. Last time I checked Powerball tickets were $2.

                            Why are you so quick to defend the California Lottery commission anyway? Do you work there or something? It's all about risk vs rewards. You are putting down a $2 wager against astronomical odds. Compare the payout for Mega Millions:

                            4286$143
                            3 + MEGA350$133
                            313,240$7

                            $2

                             

                            The payout for 5 without the Mega is $219,711. That's almost the same as the payout for 5 without the Powerball ($280,630) and the Mega Millions tickets are HALF the price.

                            Until the California Lottery commission does something about this I expect PB sales to continue to be sluggish and it won't matter how many slick Powerball commercials they crank out.

                            The only other thing that would help CA PB sales is if the PB jackpot is raised to some ungodly number, then all sense for most players are thrown out the window.

                              Semantics- $1.00  instead of $2.00, come on whiten- if it makes you feel good " you got me there l will do a mea culpa..ok?"
