Winning statistics in regards to Maryland's Powerball winner

The winning Powerball ticket from Wednesday's drawing came from Maryland.

That state has only had three Powerball winners ever.

Compare that to a state like Indiana with 39 Powerball winners or Missouri with 31.

So is there such a thing as a lucky state?

Experts in math and statistics say no.

Dr. Lew Lefton teaches math at Georgia Tech. He says it would be strange if the winners were evenly distributed by state.
