Lotto America Odds

Lotto America odds are calculated in exactly the same way as Powerball odds with formulas changed to account for the different number of balls?52 possibilities (rather than Powerball’s 69) for the white balls and 10 possibilities for the Star Ball instead of Powerball’s 26. The probability of matching the Star Ball is 1 in 10. Matching all five of the white balls would be calculated as (5/52) x (4/51) x (3/50) x (2/49) x (1/48), or 0.000000385, which translates into odds of 1 in 2,598,960. The probability of winning the jackpot, therefore, is (1/2,598,960) x (1/10), or 0.0000000385, or 1 in 25,989,600.

    DC had Hot Lotto and I played it regularly until the Tipton scandal.  Now that they have a ball drawing, DC opts out!  DC lottery players should be angry that the rollover jackpot will go elsewhere when they may have contributed to it.

            At least I won $2 last night on $10 spent by covering all 10 star balls. Going to do the same thing for Saturday's draw and reduce my jackpot winning odds tenfold down to 1:2,598,960.
