      So much for bigger jackpots. I thought the increased MM odds was to target that. I guess they will have to raised the odds again.

        OP...how much happier would you be if your state won? Doesn't mean you would win if

        someone in your state won. Keep it in terms of people playing instead of states winning. The

        more people a state has, the more tickets they sell most likely. Do you have a hate/hate

        relationship going? You hate any other state to win and you hate when your state doesn't win

        when you have a ticket for a draw...or doesn't that bother you?

        Do you also hate that you bought a ticket after the draw?

        Doesn't your state have their own, smaller jp game?

        Wait, with your luck, someone from out of state would win everytime you played.

        Hold it there.  If a non winning state that hasn't had a win in years I would definitely be happy about it.  Quite simply like I mentioned above, this is new yorks 3rd ( they also had 1 jackpot win on powerball this year! ) jackpot win for mega millions.

        Now if the lottery was truly random, the same places wouldn't be winning. 

        As for my state winning, just as long as it isn't milwaukke or madison or any places that are statiscally connected, I would congratulate the winner.

        There should be a limit to how many times a state can win the jackpot, lets say not more then twice a year and that is with mm/pb combined.

          Are you saying they have to raise the odds for a bigger jackpot?  If so, it's harder now to win a jackpot of any size.

              You are absolutely correct as to why people are giving up or not playing the lottery.  The same places are still winning the jackpots.  This is getting BORING! And a waste of money.  Let me search for the tax office for Ca., Florida, New York, Texas and other same winning states and just send them my money.

              Exactly.  No one in their right mind would want to throw their money in the pot to send to california, the place where bad to worse ideas come from!

                I just don't believe it is possible to have odds high enough to prevent these same places from winning.

                    Haters? Because people who see your ideas as nothing but lame are haters?

                    Write every lottery commission that exists and bounce your idea off of them about excluding states after X number of winners.

                    States with the largest populations sell the most tickets, or can't you figure that out.

                    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.

                        Im not crying about anything!! I'm pointing things that are right out in the open, and yet people continue to deny it is happening, that is not "crying"   Are you denying that these wins aren't happening?

                            It shouldn't matter which state sells the most tickets!!  Just because the other states don't have as many lottery players doesn't mean that those states shouldn't get a win!!  Why can't you figure that out!? 

                            What I find funny,  per the powerball page, they claim it is random ( I don't belive it ),  that it doesn't know where a ticket is purchased,  but yet coincidence after coincidence after coincidence keeps happening.   but yet they go and try to spin it, contradicting their claims.  The other states that have smaller populations can't and won't come out ahead of the states that buy more tickets.  So what that means the states with smaller populations haven't a snow balls chance in hell!  To win a jackpot.  can't you figure that out?  Can't you figure out that it is an unfair advantage?  But what I said here will be passed off as crying, or some other lame hater insults, right?

                              lets get to the crux of the matter, someone won and it wasnt ME waaaaa waaaa  buy another ticket.

                              2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016  = -1171; 2017 = ?  TOT =  -3596

                              keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= -424; 2017 = ? TOT = - 3318
