If these games are easy to win, I would have won already....lol.  They added more numbers to Mega Millions...how is this game easy to win?  And the amount of players that play each week, adds more money to the jackpot every time there is a larger jackpot.  We are talking about over 50 or 100 million here...odds are against us and not for us.  I always more tickets when the jackpots are quite large, who is not tempted?

    Hi, you must be California's odd man out who hasn't won yet.

    I hear if you buy tickets in New York or New Jersey that you can't lose!

      You been listening to/reading a lot of lottery BS which only make sense to an idiot because it was thought up by another idiot. Confused

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

          I love the way you think!  You actually get it!

          Yes, California, New Jersey, and New York definitely need to be kicked out of mm & PB.  Give those states my Uberball game I referenced.  Even with trillions of numbers to choose from those states would still win several times a year because it's WAY too easy for them.  At least it would give people in North Dakota, Oklahoma, etc a fair shot at winning pb & mm.

          Your sig makes perfect sense too, states don't win but you have to be in a state to win!

          Goodness Grief- Your thinking is downright ridiculous.Has the thought ever crossed your mind that the jackpots for those States that would remain in MUSL after NY, CA etc left  would take months if not years to reach $150 mil & higher.The States you are railing against are Building up the jackpots.

          Your thinking is akin to a Neanderthal.

            Nope, those states are knocking down jackpots.  JP's can't roll because of these states.  Without them we'd see big jackpots again, it might take a little longer though but that's OK.

                lf you " think" you correct, why would the Powers that be allow so many States to join MM/PB if it translates into a financial disaster?You claiming that the reverse is true- really?  Do you actually consider yourself smarter than the folks running the numbers on these games? BTW- if players from Minn, Puerto Rico, Wyoming won back to back on a regular basis, would you be campaigning for them to be dropped from the MUSL?

                  If you reduce the number of tickets sold, which would be the effect of cutting those states out, jackpots would still tend to be won at about the same dollar value, but it would take longer to reach that value.

                   

                  For the record, at current sales levels, there's about a 6% chance that a low-valued MM jackpot will be won; for PB, it's about 7-8%. Cut California, New York, and Florida out of the games, and those values drop to 4-5%.

                      Scared

                      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.

                              Because it's going to go BANKRUPT!

                              I hope you morons here are starting to see my point of view and understand that it is WAY TOO EASY to win these games.  I predict both will never roll again...EVER, they'll perpetually stay at $15 million and $40 million until they go bankrupt.  Winners are winning way too easily and ruining the games.

                              That's why we need a new MUSL games called Uberball!  It would be quick pick only and computerized draws.  It would be 5+1 with 500,000,000,000,000 "white balls" and 100,000,000,000,000 "bonus balls"  This game would not be too easy to win, it would probably be guaranteed to roll at least 2-3 times even.

                              The point is that these games need to be made HARD!

                              Winners are sitting back and laughing once they collect their checks & thinking "Man that was way too easy, we really screwed these chumps over!"

                              I know you don't really believe what you're trying to say here, so I have to wonder, why are you doing this? Do you find it entertaining to irritate people with ridiculous assertions? Are you so desperate for attention? There are better ways of engaging people than this troll-like behavior. Stop demeaning yourself like this. Communicate like an adult with a modicum of intelligence.
