What thoughts would go through your mind? Would you swallow hard and ask yourself " Just what in the heck is going on here?"

"Would you say " That's it- lm done!"  Or would you shrug it off and say " Just Plain Lucky l guess, their streak has to end at some point, hopefully soon!" 

Given the millions of combinations for either jackpot- l would say "Plain Luck."..

      I wouldn't think much of it if Floridia won again since the state has almost 20 million people.  I would probably raise an eyebrow at Puerto Rico winning again with a population of 3.6 million people.  Ultimately I would just shrug it off as coincidence and hope I am next!

        O.B wan- l wanted to separate these two from the conspiratorial herd because they have each won the PB as of late. What if they did it again with the next wins? Seems fair...l think.

            I wouldn't even bat an eye. In my mind it doesn't matter where the winning numbers are purchased, only that they are played.

            As far as those who would say, "That's it! I'm done," we all know they would just say that and not follow through. It would be the same people who play $100 in a record jackpot and then when they lose, swear up and down that they will never play again. That is, until the next time LOL

            People just like to find something to complain about or rationalize why they don't win

            If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
            If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

                    It's just plain luck and people picking the right numbers. So no I won't quit playing when certain states have more winners.

                            Yes lets just use the "conspiracy theory" card  to deflect/shutdown any criticism, before anyone dismisses puerto ricos second win within 2 months of the last.  Lets take a look at what is going on there.

                            Now,  that we have something to go on.  You people are throwing your money away plain and simple.  The multi state lottery is just another way to transfer everyones money where they want it to go.

                              Frankly I don't care where, or when a jackpot is won. I just know that if I'm lucky enough to even win the minimum jackpot I can kiss my job goodbye forever.

                              That keeps me going. I just think getting caught up in where PB or MM are won is goofy.

                              I really like someone's (can't remember who) sig which is a cartoon that says "he's excited that he has a 1 in 176 million chance of not coming to work on Monday".
