    who's playing the lotto to win a possible $500 million dollars?!

    The odds of winning are like 1 in 176 million, but I'm still playing nonetheless. To even dream about winning that much money is fun. lol

    anyone else vying for this money? I bought 5 tickets icon_smile.gif

    I've never bought a ticket but I'm thinking about doing it! What are the current odds? They are fading with the jackpot increases, no?

    1 in 10,000,000,000?

    The jackpot has grown to $540 million and is expected to be much larger by the time of the drawing tomorrow. If I win I am going to get the best laptop money can buy to access RealJock.

    The odds don't change over time, its always around 1/176 million, there can be more than one winning ticket.

    You have a higher chance of going outside and waiting for it to rain diamonds then win the lottery....

    Good luck for those who wish to spend their money on it... because in the end someone does win!

    I spend $2 a week on the regular CA Lotto.
    For this Mega Millions $500 million jackpot, I went wild and spent $5.

    When I win, I will give a million dollars each to my barber and my chiropractor, who are angels.
    And, I'll design my new mansion to be built here in San Francisco.
    I'll have elaborate dinners catered, for my friends.
    And, I'll replace my 21 year old Honda Accord with a new Honda Accord.

    A pool of us at work got together and bought 100 tickets. Different people bought "shares" in this, although more people may join us tomorrow, at the moment I have 10% of the shares... our office is going to be very empty if we win.

    Yeah, at our job, people could only give $5. Not $6, not $1, but exactly $5.

    Those people they are showing on the news that are waiting in line for over 3 hours. icon_eek.gif

    mizzouguy10 saidThe probability doesn't go down the more people play, there are only 176 million combination of numbers.


    I've seen it split 10 to even 30 ways in cases of groups of people buying on the same numbers together, and others mostly just by chance. I wouldn't be surprised if more than 20 people nationwide won the lottery. But no loss on any winnings, you're $1 dollar investment would sum up your only real loss, and you got MORE than you did before. I don't care if I have to share myself. I would have won some money!

    well, since I did NOT win the lottery, I thought I'd share one of every gay men's favorite quotes from THE WOMEN . "Well, I guess it's back to the perfume counter for me. Oh, and by the way, there's a name for you ladies, but it isn't used in high society, outside of a kennel."
