 I vote for December. The following question is,"Would you wait till the new year to cash it in?"   Here in California it takes about four weeks to get your check. 

 I can see why some vote for December.  Christmas presents!!!Party

            I don't see how they can say the jackpot odds for PB are just slightly higher than MM.  (1:259M vs 1:293M).

            There are almost as many white balls and almost twice as many red balls.

            My prediction is PB jackpots will be hit about 40% less than MM jackpots are won.

             

            Interestingly enough, there have been 3 separate PB 5/5 winners in CA since the matrix change.  Each one was about $330K, still putting them below the 5/5 being hit a single time in a non 'pari-mutuel' state.

               haymaker, Thanks for the correction. I do enjoy the song. I guess I could find it on You Tube.
