    If you state has MegaMillions then you can buy 30 chances to win $15M for $30. Wink

    I'm not a $30 player but if I was and was in Mass. I'd play the scratcher:

    Mass. lottery $30 scratcher:

    $15,000,000 ($750,000/Year/20 Years) $15,000,000   1 in 6,300,000

    Mega Millions:

    1 in 258,890,850

    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

    Lep

    There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

      by the time you buy 30 tickets to Mega Millions the odds are reduced to 1 in 8.6 million though, but yeah I guess the scratcher still has slightly better odds

        Is a photograph required when making a claim?

        Lottery regulations state that a claimant's name, city or town, image, amount of prize, claim date and game are public record. Therefore, photographs may be taken and used to publicize winnings.

            I'll gladly buy 10 lines of PB with powerplay, or 15 lines of MM with megaplier, covering all 15 megaballs. $30 scratchers, I don't have the balls for it yet. Very nice win if you can get it. Beautiful girlfriend, treat her well. Congrats.

              Truly an awesome win for this guy and it couldn't have come at a better time. I bought this ticket a couple of times last year when it first came out but, the most I won was $60.Disapprove

                I believe some winners have had a trust claim there winnings, so that is an option.

                  The Mass "World Class Millions" has one of the largest top prizes of any scratcher in the country, but Illinois has a $30 card that even has that beat - $30,000 a month for 30 years. Now THAT is the prize I want to win, but of course I wouldn't turn up my nose at winning the World Class Millions either!  Big Grin
