Statistically, youre more likely to be eaten whole by a great white shark. Not bitten...eaten whole. And some people have never even seen an ocean.

Thank you

The pot odds are actually about right. 600 million/ 302 Million, right about 2 bucks. Statistically it's actually worth it to buy a ticket. (Where this logic falls apart a bit is that there can be more than one winner). In any case, from a purely mathematical point of view, this is about as close to "making sense" as you'll see in playing the lottery.

I guess the odds are determined by the finite number of combination available. Since most people by generated numbers and if they sell 600 million tickets the odds are the same number being generated twice would double and the wild card is that someone could actually select the numbers. I think I read that the largest pot ever was 1.6 Billion.

Everything aforementioned above is pure goobledegook.

If you buy a lottery ticket you have a chance of winning.
If you don't you have no chance

I would keep 40 million, and give the rest away. I'll have the greatest prize pack giveaway ever. It'll be huge.
