Can you win $140 million on a 7-team parlay? Can you make a worthwhile 7-team parlay bet for $1?

Obviously, the odds on the lottery are astronomical. But there's no where else in the world where you get a least a chance - within the true meaning of the word - at a tremendous amount of money, life-changing money.

That's why $1 is worth it (not to mention the entertainment value). By Superchuck500.

    I would say I've heard of more groups of people winning the lottery than individuals. It would seem that pooling resources and purchasing a large number of tickets improves the odds of winning. Either that or it's all just coincidence. By Elitist.

      I only bought one for the very reason you state
      Because one ticket improves my odds by 100% over none, but more doesn't improve my odds any more than one does. By Lunatica.

          Are you trying to say 1 ÷ 0 = 100%?   1 ÷ 0 = ∞ so your odds are improved more than 100%.

           * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

            No, he is saying 0+1= 100% Big difference.

              How many pennies are in $1? When you buy 1 lottery ticket you go from 0 chances of winning to 1.

              $0+$1=$1 a 100% increase.

              $1 + $1= $2 a 100% increase.

              I agree with the author of the quote.

                            Only $1 wins the whole jackpot, so whether you buy one ticket or a hundred tickets only one set of numbers will win at a value of..... you guessed it $1. By MEEZY0236.
