It's easy Californians.  Just change your law and get rid of that pari thieving system. If your politicians refuse to change the law then throw them out. In this social network era it's easy to organize small people.

I don't believe it's a thieving situation. Parimutuels exist because there aren't enough people who play the game to justify the state's expected revenue and pay everyone the same amount as a result. In this way, the JP or even a p-3/p-4 game is divided amongst the winners, as opposed to the same payout for everyone.

      You are living in a different world!

      It is a national game and all payouts SHOULD be uniform for all that play. You are entitled to the same as someone with the same winning numbers you have, it's nothing about greed. Your post is absolutely ludiaris!!

      I Agree!  IT'S our money to start with not the States and it should be given back to us if we  hit the numbers, they  keep more than they should to begin with..........get real......

      Have a great day, Hit a str8.

        If you know the rules ahead of time, then don't play. The states who have those parimutuel systems are doing it for a purpose. You can't force a state to lose money just because there are enough people who are opposed to it and try to change the law. They'd be laughed out of court. It's all about money.

        Just like this whole Ebola scam, scare mongering.

        The Catholic church alone received 200 million bucks for aiding the illegal children coming through the border. Money talks and that's all there is to it. I'm not picking on the church, many other organizations also profit on a crisis. it's the American way !

                Calm down now.

                If perhaps you read what I said, that was exactly my point, but I was responding more to the LUDICROUS statement from the quoted content in my post. Got me a pocket dictionary.

                  I'm glad they do that in California, they win too much anyway.

                    It must be tough taking a payment of one quarter what others are taking home because of a local rule.

                      WB- my issue is with how low the payout was for these two people given that California throws in the lion's share of the money.I would have thought that they would have seen some serious crown North of $600K, not under $200k. I hope that clears up the misunderstanding. Getting $166K on a $200million jackpot for 2nd place  is " insane"..IMO.

                      Peace!

                      I thought you said people are happy to have won something in the first place. Then by your own words people should be happy to win $166K for second place on a $200 mil jackpot.

                      here is what you wrote. This is a direct copy and paste:

                      "l don't care what the other States are paying out neither do the majority of Californians. In order for this to make much sense, we need to read of 2nd place jackpot winners from California complaining about the amount they should have won- thing is: we don't, reason being people are happy to have won something in the first place."

                        True- you got me there. I will do a Mea Culpa... However " being happy to have won something in the first place" must also be seen in a provincial light, meaning it must " make sense" in the grand scheme of things.
