Any logical reason why CA would have the most winners, Is there a different system used?

    Lottoluck777, Ca. buys more tickets, so they have more winners.  I do believe that but, I also think that it should not matter with a national game.  I don't have any charts in front of me right now, but If you add up the total number of sales of other states that would add up to be more tickets sold than Ca..  So with that in mind, it should not matter how many tickets sold in Ca., Florida or New York.  So, as it stands today it matters how many tickets sold in separate states and how many more wins they may get.

      Effective Jan 15, 2012 - To determine how many tickets

      Maybe this will help... Scroll right to the 1/31/15 drawing.  Look at California's total draw sales.  It's 8 million dollars.  Now see if you can find another state with that many $$ in ticket sales....

      About playing the lottery --  You will lose more than you win. Until you hit a jackpot.  Then everything changes!

        Effective Jan 15, 2012 - To determine how many tickets

        Maybe this will help... Scroll right to the 1/31/15 drawing.  Look at California's total draw sales.  It's 8 million dollars.  Now see if you can find another state with that many $$ in ticket sales....

        According to the chart, the top 4 states in draw sales for January 31st are as follows:

        1. California with $8,000,814
        2. New York with $5,984,236
        3. Florida with $5,847,854
        4. Pennsylvania with $4,665,122

          Guess what is going to happen tomorrow.

          California will sell the most tickets, followed by New York, etc.

          The source of chart I posted is The Texas Lotto Report website.  It'll be updated by Thursday. Take a look at it on Thursday and see if I'm wrong. 

          To me, it cant be more obvious.  The opportunity to sell the most tickets exists in California simply because California is the most populated state in America.

          About playing the lottery --  You will lose more than you win. Until you hit a jackpot.  Then everything changes!

            Any logical reason why CA would have the most winners, Is there a different system used?

            The Only logical reason CA wins this many Jackpots is because we put up the MOST money.When any other resident of a State other than CA wins... they are beneficiaries of California's Largess. Smile Big Smile

                  But did any of the top states get the second tier prize, you know the 1 million dollars?

                    From the lead story on the LP home page right now, Three tickets to split:

                    In addition to the big jackpot winners, 34 lucky players matched the first 5 numbers for a $1,000,000 prize:
                    2 from Arizona, 3 from California, 2 from Florida, 1 from Illinois, 1 from Kansas, 1 from Louisiana, 2 from Maryland, 3 from Missouri, 1 from New Hampshire, 1 from New Jersey, 4 from New York, 2 from North Carolina, 3 from Ohio, 2 from Pennsylvania, 3 from Texas, 2 from Washington, and 1 from Wisconsin.

                    Out of the 34 second-prize tickets, only one of the tickets sold in Pennsylvania was purchased with the Power Play option for an extra $1, automatically doubling that prize to $2 million.

                    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.

                      All l know is that NC/SC almost pulled it off last night. So much for only " big " State lottery players bringing home the jackpots.

                      North Carolina has a population of approximately 10 million people, making it the 9th largest state in the country. Bigger than Michigan or New Jersey.

                      Throw in the roughly 5 million people in South Carolina, and you're looking at a combined population of about 15 million, which is greater than all but 4 states in the entire country. California, Texas, Florida and New York.
