5 WTF March 30, 2012 at 8:33 PM

The CA Lotto website is crashed from everyone trying to verify the numbers. Ha Ha.

Nope. We didn’t win. :( Oh well. At least I got the new job.

9 jz March 30, 2012 at 8:41 PM

10 Barbara March 30, 2012 at 8:46 PM

You know … I could have saved money on gas just by lighting my $20.00 bill with a match.

11 GardenGal March 30, 2012 at 9:01 PM

Glad I didn’t “buy” in. Never would have picked those numbers!

12 @ Killjoy #8 March 30, 2012 at 9:01 PM

Congratulations on the New Job!

13 Barbara March 30, 2012 at 9:02 PM

Posters with the three #s and mega — that’s at least double-digit, probably triple. I’ve never fooled with this amount before. Each time it’s contingent upon the total purchased. Anyway, you won’t know until later. (Congrats!)

14 Poollady March 30, 2012 at 9:06 PM

3 plus mega is $150 congrats!

15 Zoom-Zoom March 30, 2012 at 9:10 PM

Damn. ‘got blanked on my personal ticket… but there’s about 300 more plays in the office pool! It’s gonna be a real empty office come Monday afternoon if any of those are the winner !!!!!!

16 Nom de Plume March 30, 2012 at 9:22 PM

A couple numbers but no mega to help them out.

To those who got 3 plus mega, check the website once it can be updated for all who won. The amount probably increases since the pot was so huge.

17 EF March 30, 2012 at 9:52 PM

No big winners in CA

18 rosie March 30, 2012 at 9:58 PM

i got 2 numbers in a row and the mega did i win and how much anyone help

19 Killjoy March 30, 2012 at 10:17 PM

Thanks #12.

20 uh huh March 30, 2012 at 10:18 PM

@rosie, thats probably about $20.00 but it may be more due to the large jackpot amount. Last week I had 2+mega and it was $12.00

21 K9 Owner March 30, 2012 at 10:45 PM

hmmm too bad my soon-to-be ex didn’t win, she would owe me money, then!

22 Anonymous March 30, 2012 at 10:48 PM

Well, unfortunately I will have to take back the Porsche I bought today……LOL

In all honesty – if you won, would you state it here?

23 the MARTIAN March 30, 2012 at 10:48 PM

there is one winner in MARYLAND,, there are others out there but not in CALIF.. none of us on here won 2nite

24 Crystal March 30, 2012 at 10:49 PM

nope i didnt win! :( i didnt get any of those numbers!

25 Radar March 30, 2012 at 11:17 PM

Didnt win a thing, typical.

26 Happy One March 30, 2012 at 11:25 PM

Darn it. Didn’t win a thing. It was a nice dream while it lasted.

California hasn’t updated its Mega Millions site with tonight’s drawing results yet, but here’s the link. Once it has been updated, it will show how much you won if you had a few of the numbers.

27 Almost hit it! March 31, 2012 at 12:00 AM

Husband bought two tickets. One quick pick, and the other was his numbers. Never buys these things, in fact had to ask a woman in line how to do it. Well, almost hit it big. He had 2, 4, 23 & the mega 23. So, three numbers and the mega number. Tomorrow we’ll have to see what that will get him. Last week 3 numbers and the mega was $150, so we shall see.

28 Babs March 31, 2012 at 12:12 AM

only in my dreams…

29 J March 31, 2012 at 12:12 AM

Darn.! I hit four numbers plus the mega number. So close what a waste of money.!

30 @ the MARTIAN March 31, 2012 at 12:50 AM

Dont be so sure none of us here won…you don’t know where any of us may have purchased our tickets…people travel all over and pick up tickets in other places than the immediate area where they live….including Maryland!

31 Barbara March 31, 2012 at 5:47 AM

@J March 31, 2012 at 12:12 AM

“Darn?” You’re not pleased with $11,500?

32 Killjoy March 31, 2012 at 6:42 AM

So far, it’s three different tickets that have all winning numbers.
The pool will be split between them.

33 Law abiding citzen March 31, 2012 at 7:32 AM

Its rigged, its always East coast states that wins.

34 DoReMi March 31, 2012 at 7:36 AM

I got two of the numbers. Boo. There goes my dream. ;-)

35 youngatheart20032000 March 31, 2012 at 8:15 AM

how much do u win if u only got 3 numbers? ive never played it before

36 Barbara March 31, 2012 at 8:48 AM

@youngatheart20032000 March 31, 2012 at 8:15 AM

You got $7.00. Congrats!

37 Grewah March 31, 2012 at 8:50 AM

@youngatheart 3 right gets you $7

38 Antler March 31, 2012 at 10:07 AM

…but if I HAD won, here’s what I would have given each of you who loves to do fine woodwork out in the garage…….would have been given in memory of my father.

39 Dragon March 31, 2012 at 10:19 AM

Alas :(

40 AoD March 31, 2012 at 11:11 AM

I agree with #33.I think its rigged also. We have good luck in Cali with scratchers, but a Mega Millions winner in this state has seldom happened. It was still exciting to get the ticket and dream though.

41 olesouthbroad March 31, 2012 at 12:12 PM

LOL ! “its always East coast states that wins.”
Oh that East Coast mentality and how it’s interpreted by the West Coast !!!
What a team we’d make : East Coast with West Coast (Not to be confused with East Coast vs West Coast).

42 94598 March 31, 2012 at 12:20 PM

Dang it, still broke! There goes $15.00 I could have used.

43 Californians do win March 31, 2012 at 1:03 PM

#33 & #40 you might want to think again. Since CA joined the MM’s lottery in 2005 there have been 18 jackpot winners from CA, including 3 just last year. CA is second only to NY for jackpot winners. Californians have also claimed 2 of the top 8 MM’s jackpots of all time. The last winner was just this past November.

44 I'm Your Huckleberry... March 31, 2012 at 1:13 PM

For all those who think it’s rigged for an East Coast winner on the Mega Millions… go back and look at the article where it tells you how many $$$$$ certain States are expected to sell. California was the highest = you can figure out the rest.

45 bubbles.cr March 31, 2012 at 1:15 PM

How is it that our “nation?” Can be soooo deep into debt, but still manage to literally give away milllions that could have easily been given/donated to our school funding?????

46 @27 March 31, 2012 at 1:21 PM

3 + Mega is $158.

47 Flower March 31, 2012 at 1:27 PM

So I got 3 numbers that means I won 7$

48 Fish Breath March 31, 2012 at 1:49 PM

So #27/Almost did your husband get a Quick Pick?

49 Dutch March 31, 2012 at 3:12 PM

If I didn’t have bad luck I’d have no luck at all. Oh well. I just right it off as entertainment. I would have spent more on a movie, popcorn and a drink and the aftermath would have pretty much the same.

50 Barbara March 31, 2012 at 3:44 PM

@bubbles.cr March 31, 2012 at 1:15 PM

The benefactor(s) of this fund is not the government. It’s people who buy Lotto/Mega tickets. They buy tickets to win money, not to get some sort of tax write-off. A percentage is given to educational funding.

51 Pedro Sr March 31, 2012 at 4:10 PM

What little money you spend on tickets would have served you better in savings. For a few bucks would buy you a meal when needed!Just think about this every time you buy a ticket and what this would add up to over the years Vs your odds to support the system.

52 Aunt Bee March 31, 2012 at 4:12 PM

This is called FOOLS GONE WILD. Wonder who can spare a few bucks now for dinner?

53 Fassbinder March 31, 2012 at 4:14 PM

$20 for me, because I didn’t buy a lottery ticket. what will i do with my winnings

54 Pat March 31, 2012 at 6:14 PM

This is way out of hand. Should be limited to $1 million. There could be over 600 people new millionaires, and that would be much better. OR…just give it all to the Wounded Warriors…them and their families could use a financial lift.

55 Wanna Buy a Bridge March 31, 2012 at 7:50 PM

We have though up this way to get citizens to give the state money without giving them 99.97 % of them anything in return, problem is we don’t know yet what to call it. “How about lotto?””

Just in the 2 days before the drawing 400 Million tickets were sold.
Just a hint lotto is not retirement planning.

56 Walnut Creek Resident March 31, 2012 at 9:50 PM

I did not get one single number out of 30 numbers played on a $5.00
ticket. My friend was so amazed at that he gave me $10.00 just enough
for me to buy a bunch or rolls and butter for my potluck!! Ha Ha.. So that is that. I knew I would loose, and I did. wa wa… to celebrate my complete loss… not one number did I choose….

57 GG March 31, 2012 at 10:40 PM

I am now the proud owner of $30 worth of bookmarks.

58 Greg April 1, 2012 at 11:44 AM
