To participate in a lottery where the odds of winning a jackpot are 1:145M and have a feeling of futility because you don't win the top prize doesn't make sense.  Any one who plays in such a lottery can reasonable expect to never win a jackpot even if they play the game their whole life, that's a given with this type of game.

I think i see what you mean. For such a large JP, there must be more than calculations, and speculations, but rather, a gut feeling, because, only such inner traits can be the answer, on such a large scale event....I see.......lol
