Or think it just plain luck, at the same time would you play less?

    Conspiracy? No and that wouldn't even make sense to me, but i suspect there are those who may feel differently then i do about the matter..as they say to each their own.

      It could happen, and I would feel, why play a game that does not hit very much in your state. But we are addicted to that dream of hitting it big. So, I would play a lot less tickets.

          Truth be told shelby- l usually buy a few tickets at that gas station from time to time on my way to Silicon Valley,  but not for the past month or so...but, had l hit it, l would have still dropped in to say "Hi".
          The world is full of conspiracy theorists,  from the " black helicopters"- to America never went to the Moon- to there are Alien bodies squirrelled away at Area 51..

          Why not lottery conspiracy theorists?

                would you shout " Conspiracy? "

                Yeah, I'd exclaim, "Conspiracy!"

                That would be completely outside of all known expectations. I would be absolutely flabbergasted.

                  I think anyone with half a brain could figure that out. Its not like the State has two legs, a head and carries a wallet.

                      Apparently not, as evidenced by all the people complaining all the time about, "Why does [Florida/Jersey/California] always win? It's not fair!" No Nod

                      People are so fixated on the state when someone wins the PB/MM JP, instead of the actual people that won like Gloria or Pedro or Steve.

                      I assume that's the impetus for this week's NG weekend topic? And that was also the basis for my sarcastical commentary on the matter.

                          Another point well taken JonD. Perhaps people feel it carries more weight when the State is pushed to the fore as opposed to an individual from said State.

                            California will win its share of jackpots every year but I think it would be a stretch to say it will win all the time.  Even california has times in powerball and mega millions were they can not even create a 5+0 winner for draws.  So just because cali has two big jackpots in the last year does not mean they will win all the time or even six in a row.-weshar75

                              Conspiracy? No, I'd yell "Population! Population" ....... but now that there's a proposal to break California up into six smaller states odd that you picked six jackpots, noise-gate.

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

                              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.
