your chances are like 1 in 176 million right?



if i was some billionaire, fu*k it, buy 176 million tickets... but nobody who actually worked their way up to billions would ever make an investment like that unless they were trollin the planet.

because the payout is so high. at $640 million with 30% taxes, you would get $448 mil if you won.

the odds are something like 1/176 million, so the expected value of any given ticket is $2.54 at a cost of $1.

ON AVERAGE you would expect to make about $1.54 on a given ticket.

compare that to something like gambling in vegas. all of those games are set up such that the payout and odds of winning make each play an expected loss on average, so that even if somebody wins, over time they still make money.

obviously that doesn't mean everybody's going to make money for this, it just means payout compared to the odds is much higher than most gambling opportunities.

Did he get 10k numbers on one ticket? I know he didn't get singles and you never hear of people winning that get mad numbers on one. And plus I'm sure he lives in a rich county, they never win either.
i just came back from buying some. it was a maximum of $5 worth on each ticket
