Should California win the next 6 PB jackpots, would you shout " Conspiracy? "

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?

LOL well I hope you're not kicking yourself then, and if it was you we well I would have loved to hear about it, lke I said before it'd be cool if someone you actually know wins. Good luck for the next time.

    California entered Pb play in April of 2013. Since then there have been 14 jackpot hits:

    If there was a conspiracy I would think it was in Delaware......LOL

      I think l would ONLY kick myself IF l had filled out a playslip with the exact numbers of the winning ticket and discarded it. It would be something else if the winner filled up gas and bought a Single ticket though.
      Congrats to the winner/ Winners.

        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

        The topic is for fun Weshar, in other words " not to be taken seriously".
        When PB came to California last year, there were those who thought we'd be winning a lot more given the population of the State. However this just goes to show just how difficult it is to hit it.Having the Single winning ticket in the entire United States is mind boggling and should one win, if you keep your head about you, you better  think carefully about how you invest in your future or you could end up living on the streets.

          A few months back everyone was whining about New Jersey winning a bunch of PB jackpots.  Now its California's turn to hit some jackpots.  Now everyone screams conspiracy?  Lay off the Crystal-Meth.

              KillerDemo,

              For some folks whenever a jackpot is won in a state other than theirs it's a conspiracy.

              Then if it's their state but they didn't win it, it's a conspirsacy, etc...ad nauseam.

              Bang Head

              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.

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

                Thanks for jinxing the rest of our states! LOL

                If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
                If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

                  Well that's another one for California... congrats to the lucky winner.

                  Next time, please generate a winner from SoCal.  You guys in NorCal already have the last three sizable jackpots.  Wink

                      From what little I know about meth, I thought it made users paranoid, not conspiratorial.

                          It's time to kick California out of all MUSL lotteries so that everyone else has a fair chance.

                          They can have their own state lottery & 5,000,000 players can win every single jackpot drawing and split the change with each other.

                            The lottery needs to change where it will attract More players in other states. I think some people do not play because of the odds and that some of the same places win again and again.

                              Wow, cali won PB again. Looking at the breakdown on the PB website, they do have far more ppl playing than my state(Mass). Maybe I should move to Cali, or maybe florida.
