Uhh seriously this is getting old, no one outside of California has a fair shot at winning any MUSL game!

The time has come to kick them out of all MUSL games.  They can have their own state lottery and all 38 million residents can win it & split the change.

Maybe the government should tax CA jackpots at a 99% rate hahaha. 

No congrats to whoever won, hopefully they end up worse than David Lee Edwards.

      Have you thought about, relocating to Ca? They do have many times more people, than Mo!

      Congrats to the Winner/winners!! I only had 2 WB.

              I thought the same thing. California for 2014 is on a hell of a roll, but prior years it has averaged about a win a year. This year including yesterday it's four.

                  They averaged a win a year? They didn't even get Powerball until a year and a quarter ago, so it can't be compared. They were also winning Mega left and right in 2009-2010 and 2012

                   

                  Let's all face it, they have more bounce in California!

                    Look on the bright side, if a bookmaker ever offers bets on which state will win the jackpot, you could be rich!

                    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?

                      Powerball wasn't played in CA until April 2013.

                        I'm not sure how much 'bounce' they have, but they do have easily the largest population of any U.S. state. Officially they have around 38 million residents, but that doesn't include the millions of illegal aliens that don't show up on population counts/estimates. Nobody knows exactly how many people in CA play the lottery, but it's safe to say they have the largest pool of players in the country by a healthy margin, so it's not terribly surprising they have a significant number of jackpot winners.

                          You can see how much they play. At lower jackpot levels, 7%. At higher jackpots 10%. Winning far more than that as a %.

                              Uhh seriously,

                              California HAS their own state lottery.

                              LOLOL.

                              After reading the post you are commenting about,  I would believe kicking them out of the MUSL would leave them with just the california lottery games, let them win each others money, instead of having a transfer of wealth ( socialism ) from other states to california.
