What about a lottery with average jackpots over a BILLION dollars, but 1 in 2,074,171,176 odds?

I'd play it regularly. That's a lot of money. [ 12 ]  [30.00%]
I'd play it sometimes, when the jackpot is big. [ 15 ]  [37.50%]
No, I would never buy tickets for that game. [ 13 ]  [32.50%]

The U.S. will have rains of multi-millionaires.

I wish it did but it will not....Having rain of multimillionaires will be so awesome but i know it will not create "Rain of Multimillionaires"....

anyways  explain how it would....

The Forex trades: 1.6 Trillion dollars EVERY day, that´s more than the GDP of the Carribbean Central America, COMBINED. Enough to feed every crook out there for centuries...To all Geniuses & Powers Countries of the World the Planet needs breakthroughs in all Medicine, Veterinary, Biology related fields, Psychology, Population Psychology/Sociology..They need to genetically ingeneer new plants species/types to give more variety of plants and thus have more resources for combating diseases¨

    1 in 2 billion is just too much. I'm having a hard enough time beating of 1 in 2 thousand. But I fear this might be the not-too-distant future of lotteries, if current trends continue. I hope not though.

    No offense intended.

      The real question is how much will $1 billion buy, then? A billion don't go as far as it used to.Clown

        It might just be that in the future, with the jackpot being in the billion dollar or more. One can buy get a space in the ocean and built your very own island, in the shape of Bugs Bunny, with small airport and lots of luxury hotels in exotic landscapes...

            Those odds are just way too high, as it stands now with odds similar to the current rounded down Powerball (1 in 195M) or MM (1 in 175M) odds there's a chance to make it to 400M so there's no real reason to increase the odds that much just for a potential tripling of the jackpot.

            You can't predict random.
