Here’s Why Montana is the Unluckiest State in Lottery History
If you want to play and win the lottery, you may want to consider moving to a different state. Montana is not a lucky state for winning Powerball or Mega Millions lottery jackpots. According to Casinoarabi.io, a gambling website, has gathered data on lottery winnings, Montana is actually the unluckiest state when it comes to Powerball or Mega Millions.
Montana is the Unluckiest State
According to their data Montana has not had a lottery jackpot winner since 2014, that along with our population and the tax rate for jackpot winners, make Montana the "unluckiest" state in the nation. They started collecting data from August 24th, 2014 which is when Wyoming became the 45th state to allow lottery tickets to be sold. Montana isn't the only state that hasn't had a jackpot winner since 2014. Neither has Idaho, Kentucky, Mississippi, Nebraska, North or South Dakota, or Wyoming.

The Luckiest State is New Hampshire
The luckiest state for winning is New Hampshire with three jackpot wins and a total of over $1.2 Billon dollars. Vermont is second with only one jackpot win, but with such a small population, they would be a luckier state when looked at how many jackpots per 10 million people. New Jersey would be considered the third luckiest state, even though they have had a whopping 11 jackpot winners since 2014. Even with 19 jackpot wins, the most of any state, New York ranks fourth due to the large population.
