NJ has been cashing in like no other State Lately. They bagged 2nd prize again last night- whether it was Pedro who started this trend or another, they sure have had more than their share of winners and runner up's as well. All the Best to the winners!!

Side Question: Has anyone won the Main Prize to your knowledge " after" winning 2nd prize, whether recent or in the distant past? l can think of none.

    If Thrifty ever decides to cross state lines and buy a ticket in NJ he is sure to be the jackpot winner.

      l concur Ronnie, l just think that NJ has had an incredible run so far this year, infact Florida is a close 2nd. l hear the talk about more players back East and so forth, given the odds- even the US Virgin Islands should be winning more- but NJ at present has its fingers in the lottery cookie jar.. imo.

          Ninja- are you implying that the storm gods are responsible for these winfalls?

            We had dust storms this week. I could use $200 million worth of help getting the dust out of my eyes.

              The same thing has been said of California when it had a streak of MM winners.   Some even thought they would do the same thing with PB, but I guess any decent size state can have a streak of winners.

                Seeing his posts, he would have to hitchhike because it costs $12 to cross the bridge back.

                  Perhaps-  but you talking about past streaks. Consider this: since California joined in the PB game in April, we have yet to nail the grand prize.

                      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.
