          I think that is pure greed. I can't believe with all the money that is already being made, and the economy being the way it is, the lottery would go up on their pricing. I don't care how big the jackpot gets up to, I will not buy a powerball ticket in 2012! You can say what you like, but this is just another way to make more money! By Renee.

              For all the people who made negative comments no one is forcing you to play; if you play you have a chance to win if you don't play you have NO chance to win its just that SIMPLE! By  DREDAY.

                      I finally understand, the odds are not what you read on the back of a ticket like I thought,duh... The odds are based on how many tickets are printed to begin with for the game. Slow learner...It really is luck of the draw!!! By SCRATCHHAPPY.

                        "If you won the lotto and want to see what your friends and family think of you, die broke, and see who comes to your funeral”

                        Why wait that long to see what your "friends" and family think of you.  What?  When you win, just give everyone a few thousand, or nothing at all.

                        Then just stand back and watch the real drama begin. They will either be showing up at your doorstep with their hands out, or cursing you for

                          I was spending $2 a week on Mega-Millions or Powerball tickets depending on which jackpot amount was higher. That's $104 / year for the chance to win big. But in reality, I hardly ever win even $2, so basically, I was throwing that money away. By Tom Thomas.

                            Aren't your chances 2000x better if you buy 20 tickets than if you buy 1 ticket?

                            I get the argument your professors made. If you're willing to throw away 1$, that's a good bet for $100M. If you're willing to throw away $20, your odds are essentially the same, but you're throwing more money. Essentially, you're not going to win anyway, so the benefit of paying $1 and getting into the pool of potential winners is a much better wager than adding $19 wasted dollars on top of the $1. But the argument is that you're going to lose anyway, so really they're just saying that it's better to waste $1 than $20. By SaintsFan11.
