I just did a search on the MM site and noticed there's only been 1 winner (per drawing) who has won the 1 million dollar prize, 5/6 over the past few drawings.  I find it interesting and not in a good way.  I play MM weekly and I hope I'm not wasting time and money.

    At odds of 1:18,492,204 to hit the MM second prize, I am surprised that some one hits at all. Good luck if MM is your chosen game.

    That money's gone fo ever

      I have said this before, but my opinion is that the lottery computer looks for the least played set of numbers.  That is why you only have 1 or 2 may-be 3 winning tickets per game.  This may-be one reason that people use birthdays to pick their set of numbers.

        The odds are the reason you have "1 or 2 may-be 3" winning tickets.

          This is why I wish Oklahoma had a state game even the odds for the second prize for mega according to OKLC is 18,492,204 you will have a better chance with your state lotto game.

            MM never had a jackpot winning ticket every drawing (game?) and maybe someone will tell you the record for consecutive drawings with a jackpot winner.

            Is your conspiracy theory the MM people taped all 17,259,390 of the possible five number drawing outcomes and picks a result with no five number matches?

              The odds of winning the jackpot ($25,000 taxes paid) in Oklahoma Cash 5 is 1 in 376,992 and the odds of winning $500 is 1 in 2433. The odds against winning $500 playing MM is 1 in 52,835. Nothing wrong with trying to win $1 million for $1 but if you want to win something anything, your chances are much better playing Cash 5 or Pick-3.

                  It's BK stackers nature to bark when his theorys are threatened. He's even known to yell at movie screens when somethings not correct.

                       LOL

                      I was in a movie theatre in a distant city one time and a guy kept yelling out "Man, that dude be trippin!" about every 5 minutes.

                      That got old real fast.

                              Right. This week their computer (cleverly disguised as a ball machine, to throw us of the track) picked a set of numbers that resulted in no 5+0 winners, even though it resulted in a jackpot winner instead of a rollover and a chance to increase ticket sales. I guess that after selling almost 7% of the possible combinations there wasn't  even one set of numbers that would have offered a rollover and no 5+0 winners.
