            I don't believe I said I could win it. I believe I asked what the odds were and how many balls they have.

              30M CAD (roughly, 27M USD) must be very attractive when the odds of hitting jackpot and low-tier prizes are taken into consideration. The problem is that it might not be easy for those staying outside Canada to buy Canada Lotto 649 tickets for some reason(s).

              I hope an LP member who, I guess, very likely is in Canada to win it in this Saturday nite drawing.

               

              Good luck!

                Someone usually wins it and well it could be me but I doubt it and well I have a ticket so I have a better chance than you do...:)

                  6/49 games in general are a good betting proposition once the jackpot exceeds $11 million (USD).  At that point the risk/reward equation falls into balance and becomes more favorable to the player.  I'm not saying that the player has an edge, just that it becomes a better game in terms of the payout being balanced with the "risk" of your bet.

                  Thus, when 6/49 games get to the level of $30 million, they become excellent lotto games to play, and people should take advantage of the opportunity to play in every drawing from that point until it is hit.  (Technically, at the $11 million point the continuous playing should commence.)  Note that this is advice for people looking for strategies to play 6/49 games, and who are already predisposed to play that game, nothing more.

                    LOL, Sheba!

                    If I was closer to the border, I would probably buy a couple of tickets.

                          That must have been a relief for your friend Sheba. Getting laid off one day and winning the lotto the next. =)
