    I thought the lottery has certain numbers that do not roll (with QP), this helps determine the published odds?

    Cheers

        50M to 1, if all the possible number combinations were 50M. According to your math, if they only sold two tickets, you had a fifty-fifty chance.

              What are the odds the jackpot will get high enough that they'll actually sell 175+ million tickets though?

              I remember last year the MM jackpot got to $290 million, and they sold over 132 million tickets when the odds were only 135 million to 1.

              Right to the point! Every draw is an independent event. But, more rollover means higher jackpots and more playing..... more winners..... higher possibility of a jackpot winner.

                  do you mean 50,000,000 sold for one draw or the total of all the draws til won.

                  if it is the total of tickets sold until won then the odds for winning that draw turned out to 50mil to one

                  however overall odds are still 175mil to win. it is possible for one ticket only being sold and winning so would that make the odds 1 to 1 in that event

                  over the long haul theory says 175mil tickets should be sold for one to win

                  boy do i run on

                  the odds do not mean much to those who win the jackpot

                      I think the longest roll was Pennsilvania's stupid six. I don't know how long it took to get a winner at that game but it went on for months.

                        Thats it in a nutshell. All it takes is faith, a dollar, and tons of luck. When the value gets to the 3-digit size, those who worry about the odds line up in front of, or in back of, those that don't watch the odds. The size over rules odds every time.

                          Lotto Texas had a record 32 rolls in a row before someone hit the jackpot with 5+bonus matrix. I think hot lotto and Pen. stupid six are the highest rollovers. In CA SLP, only 13 rolls occurred in last run until someone hit $55 million.
