don't waste your breathe. I've been trying to convince these yahoos for weeks that the states that buy the most tickets have a greater chance of winning due to the fact they have more number combinations covered but it's like talking to a brick wall.

As someone once said...

" Your central nervous system is functioning normally, but we " Yahoos" are picking up some degradation in your neural pathways"..

    It's probably futile to say this. But according to internal documents (stuff not accessible to the public), MUSL estimates that New York will have the most Millionaires' Club winners when the top prize is hit (about 3 with 20 prizes available). This is pre-CA* of course but lo and behold, guess who has the highest MC sales? New York. So even the lottery knows that a jurisdiction with higher sales has a higher chance of winner(s). Imagine that.

    If you're tired of other places winning all the time, then move there and then you can complain how other neighborhoods win all the time. Green laugh

    *P.S. CA will have their funky pari-mutuel rules for this game after all, which means 15 winners there probably won't mean exactly 15 prizes of $1 million.

    "If you're tired of other places winning all the time, then move there and then you can complain how other neighborhoods win all the time."

    The people who live in Virgin Island are lucky if they get a 3 + 1 or 4 + 0 match and you never hear them complaining. Maybe it's because they understand the odds and know it's unlikely to get a jackpot win or a five number match when all the players combined bought 11,620 tickets.

      People should not have to move! May-be it should say on the lottery page: Note, places that have the most players will have the most wins.

      " May-be it should say on the lottery page: Note, places that have the most players will have the most wins."

      The people who aren't too stupid to be flummoxed by junior high probability understand that without having to be told. It's simple common sense that should be evident to everybody with a room temperature IQ.

          So it really has nothing to do with luck, it is technically, location location location.

            I'd try to explain it to you in a way that you'd understand, but I'm pretty sure that's impossible

              I'd try to explain it to you why a certain state always wins, in a way you would understand, but I'm pretty sure that's impossible.

                Your lack of originality isn't surprising.

                California always wins, huh?

                And no, they didn't fabricate the entire page just because you'd show up sometime.

                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.

                  You seem to always believe what you're told, if you don't like what I have to say, BLOCK ME!

                    Of course it's impossible. You're wrong, and you don't have the ability to present a cogent argument.

                      At one point you did say California always wins.......I posted the Winners Gallery from the MM site because there are a lot of Non-CA, NY, NJs on there......... Michigan, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, etc.....

                      I think you were taught revisionist history and are trying to apply it to the lotto.

                      There area lot of people on this board with a lot of knowledge and when you say something asinine you're going to get criticized for it, deal with it.

                        I just read somewhere that most automobile accidents occur within 5 miles from where you live. You may want to move to another location many miles away.

                          I really don't think you and your pals know anything, all you want is me to do is conform, and stop being suspicious.   If the lottery was truly random, then the same annoying state wouldn't keep winning! If that is so hard for you to understand that some thing may just not be right,  don't try to insult my intelligence, because you can't handle the lottery may possibly be crooked, if you want to be a fool and throw your money away, and come and spin excuses for why the same state always wins, you're going to get criticized for it, deal with it.

                            Since nothing will convince you that other states do win it's very obvious that deep down inside you want California to win so you can bitch and moan some more.
