1- On one hand you have a lottery game that costs $1.00, you pick six numbers and you have ONE CHANCE to win $100 millions jackpot;

2- On the other hand you have a lottery game that costs $1.00, you pick six numbers and you have ONE HUNDRED CHANCES to win one million dollars jackpot;

In which lottery game do you prefer to play? 1 or 2?

    It depends on the matrix, but more than likely 1 chance to win $100M.

      My vote is for one hundred chances, but I'd like to know the matrix.

        Personally, I don't see a BIG difference between 1 in 146 million, and 1 in 2 million.

        Point being, if I asked everyone on here to pick ONE number on a scale of 1 to 55 - or 1 to 20 - or probably even 1 to 10, most people would not get the correct number.

          If $1 buys 100 "chances" or drawings, then that is the game to go with.

            I prefer 100 chances as my vote. However, someone bought $1 to win a jackpot.

              I agree.  If I could spend $1 for a 1 in 10,000 chance of winning $1,000,000.  No question!  I don't think the game would be around for very long though!

                Either way, I just have no luck at all if I play the lotto. I spent about $3000 in my career and the most I ever won was $23 in 2001.

                  I like the $1 for $100 Million.  1 Million doesn't buy much these days.  Got to go for the $100 million!

                    congratulations! you probably already got there, but for us ordinary people that do not have a million dollar bank account is better to have 100 chances to make the first million :-)

                        No one can be told about the matrix. You have to see for your self. :-)

                          This is the best answer. I agree 100%. If we think about math, anything higher than one in two menas we're more likely to lose. But I still prefer to have 100 chances than one for the same dollar.

                            Sorry for you. Lucky follows perseverance and hard work. At least you play, so I hope one day you win. Think positive. The Law of Attraction is powerful and real. I personally have won so many small prizes that I lost count. I matched five numbers two times now, and I know I'm going to win the lottery, all those six litle numbers.
