Gotta love this State. I assume that someone SLAMMED IT... down in the Greater LA Area.

 

The CA Lottery is out of service due to excessive Traffic...

      Hmm... I'm seriously wondering how many tickets were bought. I wonder if it was a bunch of millionaires that pooled their money together.  I'm not saying it happened but there has been talk about it. I know there was a lottery pool at my work today of $800 total play and those ticket purchases took way shorter than I thought. Would it be possible if say 10 people from a pool started buying tickets from Saturday until Wednesday night to monopolize? Not saying this is fact, just wondering if it could happen. Any thoughts.. Anyone?

        Our Group plays about $900 per Month on Mega/Power.

        We live in Northern CA, but will buy down south when its this high

        Its been 4 years, were in it for the long haul I guess

            If it was "a bunch of millionaires" good luck to them.How many millionaires contributions helped pump this total up? I'd say quite a lot.

            EDIT: L.A. Within a few days,they get an N.F.L. side,AND a billionaire thrown in for good measure.

              Now that its a WRAP, I guess that anything less than 1/2 Billion will not generate much Sales.

              This might have long term $$$ repercussions for the Power Ball

                      I am completely amazed how quickly cali reported its win! What is the deal with some of these states not reporting results? I'm eager to see how many hit the 1 million tier payout. hope its close to 40 tickets! that would be sweet!

                      ~~Is it true, Is it kind,Is it necessary. ~~~

                       Thanks be to the giving numbers: 1621,912,119 02014

                        Can anyone say rigged? I wonder how long its been for some states to win a jackpot. 2 back to back drawing numbers, honestly what are the odds? This reeks.

                            Given the size of this JP i am glad to see there were 3 winners who got to share in it.

                            "Without wood a fire goes out; without gossip, conflict calms down.

                            Like adding charcoal to embers or wood to fire, quarrelsome people kindle strife."

                            Proverbs 26: 20-21

                              California has 15% of powerball ticket sales and there are often more than one winning ticket drawn so I'd say the odds are pretty good that CA has back to back winners from time to time.

                               

                              A state like Vermont has 1/100th the number of tickets sold compared with CA so you would expect, over a long period of time, that CA would have 100 times as many winners as Vermont.  For Vermont to have back to back winners would be extraordinary, CA not at all.
