How many people play the california lottery-mega millions?
From their faq:
You can play Mega Millions in in 41 states plus the District of Columbia and the U. S. Virgin Islands; a total of 43 jurisdictions.
So a few million tickets are sold for each drawing....then you'd have to figure out how many tickets, per person, each person bought...I'd say a million people, each time, give or take a few.
I'm not sure but here's some contact numbers for the California Lottery:
