It's no secret MM and PB are rigged by the powers-that-be so that NY and CA have a lion's share of the jackpot winners.  Do the math.  Look at history.  And don't give me the "bigger population" excuse.  The population difference is not as great as the ratio of winners' in NY/CA to other states.

I stopped playing the jackpot games a year ago and only play scratch-offs.  I've won $450 since, and haven't thrown any money away on these rigged jackpot games.

Someday, a person with more time and money than I have will take legal action against this illegal scam and win.  Then NY and CA will have to break off into their own jackpot game, and the rest of the states will get their own.  That's the only way this stops.

Meanwhile, you non-NY and non-CA players can keep throwing your money away on something that you have NO CHANCE of winning.

      THE LOTTERY is blaming Mega Millions and Powerball low sales to JACKPOT FATIGUE. Lottery players are tired of losing money on these games.

        It doesn't matter what State Wins, it's all about being in the right spot at the right time...

        Which random spot and time? Oh I see. I already sent my order to the universe for a lottery jackpot win. How about you my friend?

          MaximumMillions,

          I lived in Germany in the 1970s, in Hessen. I was stationed in Friedberg and lived in Bad Nauheim.

          A neighbor was the weatherman on the local TV station and hit the Hessen lotto. He didn't seem to get pestered like many stories here on LP about winners.

          This will sound silly but I learned to count in German by watching the drawings on Saturday nights. Of course, it was Hessen German, so zwanzish instead of zwanzig, etc....

          At that time I think the 6/49 was the only game.

          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.

            Found this info from the Ca-lottery.

            The California Lottery is a $5 billion enterprise based in Sacramento. It is one of the few state agencies that is a revenue generator, not accepting taxpayer dollars. Its mission is to provide supplemental funding to California schools while simultaneously supporting local communities. In FY 2013-14, the Lottery created 89 new millionaires. Ninety-five cents of every dollar spent by our players goes back to local communities in the form of contributions to public schools and colleges, prizes and Lottery retailer compensation. The California Lottery urges its customers to play responsibly and within their budgets. If you feel you have a gambling problem, or know someone who does, you can get help at 1-800-GAMBLER.

            People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it- George Bernard Shaw.

              Haha, regional dialects in Germany are there own beast, it's not just a drawl or a twang it's like a completely different language and it's always fun when you are somewhere and they talk in a completely different way and you have to translate it in your head.

              Maybe he didn't get pestered because he used his right to anonymity? Also depends on what he won.

               

              There was also Glücksspirale at that time, still exists, you win 2 mil € and it's paid to you like a pension, lately they've allowed for a lump sum too.

                The population doesn't matter as much as the number of tickets these states buy.  It's the same in each state, the areas that buy the most tickets win the most.  What amazes me are the dumb statements people post at LP and expect them to be taken seriously.

                 * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

                  Dude,  even the MM/PB FAQ page contradicts it's self.  Then go look at the winners page.

                    No, lottery players are tired of their money flowing to states like california and new york.  California needs those jackpot wins to support all those illegal immigrants.

                      I can't remember if I read this some where, but are all the lottery store terminals connected to a main lottery mainframe?  ( one big computer )

                              Seems like you would have a better chance/feeling of winning the jackpot if a person moved to a state that has more jackpot winners.

                              Exactly. You should make a list of all the combinations that have been drawn in the last year or two and ask your state lottery why they didn't let you play them.
