I have been noticing American lotteries being rigged Your Mega Millions and Powerball as if you compare the Amount of jackpot winners with Australian or England lotteries you will see much more jackpot winners last Australian lotto 14 people have won a jackpot sharing a jackpot.Its sad to know you spend money on a lottery thats openly rigged i am sure allot of folks will feel the same.As if the odds are not already astronomically high the officials have their hands in the cookie jars.Shame on you American and African lotteries.My own countrys lotteries are also rigged and the Americans seems too openly rigged....sad for all us lottery players

If you can't do something about it why waste time talking about it?

    It was a simple observation Raven62 ..........we have a few touchy persons on the forum. No need to be hostile towards foreigners. This applies to Coin Toss  Ruberduckeye and yourself.  We can all talk and discuss subjects in a civil way. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions -dont like then move on -keep your bitchy remarks for yourself. If you have followed this thread my own countries lottery is exactly in the same boat.

      I Agree!Yes The State Lottery are Cheaters That's why we need to try and beat them at their own games only few have succeeded on the BIG games the others are Lucky by QP Tickets.

        There is a mistake in your formula. The cost of a Mega Millions ticket is $1.

        Sorry about that. But the formula was based on what I pay. I pay $2 online, so I compare to swedish and other lotteries and also uses exchange rates to compare. Then I know which lottery to play at the moment. Right now it's US MM, Saturday Lotto (aus) and Viking Lotto (swe) swedish lotto is also favorable but I never liked 7 of 35 games.

          You are right helpmewin allot of my American friends prefer their local state lotteries over the big boys the "Mega Lotteries" Every person plays which format they prefer. I know lotteries with mega and bonus balls just have astronomical odds....then a normal lotto is a better bet without the bonus balls

                    Ricklou,

                    On the one hand you say everyone is entitled to their own opinions but then you say those who contradict yours are 'touchy'.

                    So which is it?

                    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.

                          Ricklou,

                          On the one hand you say everyone is entitled to their own opinions but then you say those who contradict yours are 'touchy'.

                          So which is it?

                          He doesn't have a clue CT. He doesn't have any idea what kind of odds MM and PB have. They don't have to rig anything with those odds.

                          They don't win so in their minds, "it's rigged".

                          CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

                          A DOLLAR AND A DREAM (OR $2)

                              Good points. He also has no idea how many others have come on this site saying, " The lotteries are rigged."

                              A search for "rigged" produced this, 10 pages worth. You are not the first.
