Well this is weird.  For the first time in a long time I finally bought MM tickets last night.  I took a glance at my numbers and threw the ticket on my desk hoping it would turn me into a millionaire.  It was funny because last night I was thinking to myself there is probably going to be a consecutive number in the 20's for this drawing.  I actually was going to post that also, but oh well.  Well anyway last night I was like I can't wait to wake up in the morning and see that the jackpot was won in Michigan.  So I figured last night  I would go to lotteryreport.com after seeing the ticket was sold in Michigan and see what my chances were.  Well I actually got up to see that lo-and-behold the winning ticket was sold in Michigan!!!  So I went to lottoreport and found that 1,772,191 tickets were sold in Michigan.  That cut my odds down to 1 in 350,000 of having the winning ticket.  Now I went to go and look at the numbers.  09-20-24-25-36  MB 23.  I remembered I had a ticket that started with the number 9 and it did have consecutive numbers in the 20's.  So I was getting excited.  Well I went to my desk to grab the ticket and realized that I did win something.  I ended up matching three white balls for $7 09-19-20-23-25  MB 09.  Not the $75 million but it was still a funny situation.

        $7.00 for getting three numbers, is just wrong.  It wouldn't kill the lottery  if it gave out 7,000 for a win like that.

          That's the reality of the big jackpot games though. It's all about giving one or two players an insane amount at the expense of the other prize levels.

            Of course it would kill the lottery. Literally. The odds of matching 3+0 are only 1 in 306. If 3+0 was the only match that paid anything  the lottery would have to pay out $23 for every $1 they collect.  If you've got a workable plan for financing that, you don't need to waste your time playing the lottery.
