Default Have you noticed no one ever wins Powerball Or Megabucks from Milwaukee???

I wonder why Milwaukee never has any large jackpot winners. I think it is kind of fishy, with all the people Milwaukee has no one ever wins from here. I think the lottery is rigged, a total waste of money and energy. What do you guys think?

I don't know about rigged, but it does seem like alot of older people win it, weird.

I was talking about that the other day. No one EVER wins, not even in the surrounding area.

I wonder has there ever been a winner in the Milwaukee area in the Wisconsin State Lotto history?

Not sure. There's been winners of sums ranging from 100K to 250K but nothing in the millions or it would be in the news, and I 've lived here a LONG time.

That seems really off to me. I have to do some further research into this. This should be a lesson the more tickets you buy really does not matter.

Powerball is a multi-state lottery. Megabucks is state-wide. I guess if you think there is a scam the only way to prove that is to go to another city and buy a few hundred tickets. According to your logic you should be the next big winner then. Or doesn't it matter where you buy the tickets as long as you are from Milwaukee??

I don't even bother buying tickets because I just know I would never be lucky enough to win. It's nice to dream though!
