I'm in Oklahoma right now visiting and I thought I would stop and pick up some powerball and scratch tickets. I tried the $5 and $2 tickets. I came out winning a good bit on a $2 ticket.... (I won $40.) However, the $5 tickets aren't as good as I thought they would by after looking at some stats on the odds. On the $2 ticket the overall odds are 1:4.8. On the $5 ticket the odds are 1:3.4. However, in every pack of $2 tickets there is one $40,$20, and $10 winner. The $5 tickets only have 1 $20 and $25 winner in a pack... I think I would play the $2 ticket over any other ticket OK has.... Or better yet... I'll see you guys at the Casino. I won $170 the other night.
How are you going to win if you don't play?
