The key word is TERMINAL,  I never mentioned anything about a RNG.  They know what numbers have been drawn for specific areas from the lottery TERMINAL, that is how california wins the big ones.

Exactly, they know which numbers have been sold.

Anyway, it sure has been fun playing all these years only to help California win.  No one in any other state stands a chance as long as Cal is still in mm and PB.  Not even New York or Florida.

I wonder if California's state lottery ever rolls at all.  I bet there are dozens of Jp winners each drawing.

In order for California to participate and the game to be more fair, it would have to be computerized draws and some really insane matrix like a 5 + 1 with numbers ranging from 1 - 999,999,999,999

      The computerized lottery terminals,  if it doesn't match any 6 numbers in california,  they let it roll again.

        "I wonder if California's state lottery ever rolls at all.  I bet there are dozens of Jp winners each drawing.

        From the California lottery Super Lotto Plus page:

        There was no jackpot winner for this draw. But there are 101,799 winning tickets and the jackpot just got bigger! Get your ticket for the next draw.

        ________________________________________________________________

        jj,
        you seriously need to start your own Urban Legends: The Lotto Edition site or something.
        You're on the internet already to post here, might be nice if you went to some of the sites where the information you make guesses at, painfully wrong guesses, is available.

        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.

          You can facepalm all you want,  the fact you can't and won't even give anything a second thought is face palm worthy.

            Well, when you make a statement that there must be dozens of jackpot winners every draw, it's telling that you don't know what you're talking about. You and jjprincess are actually funny.

            You guys actually believe that CA lottery tells the folks in Georgia and Florida what the numbers were that they sold and for them not to let them be drawn until it's time for a winner in CA. Even though the numbers are drawn by ball machines. LOLOL. That's giving what you said a second thought is.

            CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

                you wrote, "The computerized lottery terminals,  if it doesn't match any 6 numbers in california,  they let it roll again."

                You seriously believe if it doesn't match any 6 numbers in California, they let the jackpot roll again? There are so many problems with that theory, I don't know where to start....

                For one, did you ever think that if MUSL let the jackpot roll like you said because "it doesn't match any 6 numbers in California" and then there is someone not in California who bought a ticket with the 6 numbers, then MUSL's scam would be exposed immediately? No, you never thought of that did you?

                Pictures of the winning ticket with the 6 matching numbers and the bar code at the bottom of the ticket would be plastered all over the news. There would be surveillance footage of the person buying the winning ticket and yet...... the jackpot rolled.

                Lawsuits would follow, people would lose their jobs in addition to time in prison for defrauding their customers and in the end what would they have possibly gained for pulling such a scam? Absolutely nothing. There are even more problems with your theory I can point out but I have a feeling I'm talking to a brick wall so I'm not even going to bother.

                  They have to know before hand, some how, before draw time what number combinations have been used,  and where.  If you can't and won't think that isn't a possibility,  I also have a feeling I'm talking to a brick wall.

                    Mega millions cash jackpot at 80 million.  If it reaches 100 million,  If I could bet on california winning,  I would take that bet.

                        What did I change?  The lottery terminals that print out the QP's, and self picks can possibly be queried before draw time by the lottery.    So still, no subject change as you claim...You've posted another "face palm" response

                          that's not what you wrote. You are changing your original claim and flip floping on the comment because you know how ridiculous it is. Here is what you wrote: 

                          "The computerized lottery terminals,  if it doesn't match any 6 numbers in california,  they let it roll again."

                          I already refuted this claim by pointing out a glaring flaw in your idea.

                            That isn't flip flopping.  Like I said,  if the lottery terminals are queried before the actual draw,  pre draws until they get the number they want for a certain state,  and to get the jackpot  rolling higher for that certain state.  Still you've embarassed yourself by claiming I'm changing my position, or the subject,  it is just that you can't come up with a reply.

                              You said that they check if any six numbers match in California and if it doesn't, they roll the jackpot but that doesn't address the problem of what happens when a winning ticket is sold in another state. I don't know how much clearer I can make this for you.
