Goose, why those numbers?  Did you have a dream and if so could you please have another one and try to narrow the numbers down a little bit, lolllllllllllll.
Cause i dont have 726,570 dollars to invest in all those combos and on top of that i wouldnt be able to get all the cards filled out and thru the lottery machines before fridays draw.

Hell even if a person had 175,711,536 dollars which would be needed to play every combo, the person would never be able to fill out the cards, nor would they be able to get all the cards thru the lottery machines without tens of thousands of people at the stores. On top of that i believe there is a law where one person cant tie up a machine for i think more then 20 minutes.
Now even if a person could somehow get down on every combo {which iam pretty sure is impossible anyways}
The prize is at 500 million, if he takes lump sum payout, he gets 250 million minus taxes which at just 30 percent is 75 million.
so 250 million -75 million = 175million which is what he invested and thats only if nobody else wins.

I just read the other day, you have a 60 billion better chance of hitting the powerball lottery then getting a perfect march madness bracket.
The odds of a perfect bracket are 1 in 9,223,372,036,854,775,808
thats quintillion.
unreal, you have a better chance of winning the powerball twice in the same day and getting hit by lightening twice in the same day then you have of getting a perfect march madness bracket. Thats friggin unreal

I just started playing the lottery. I was never interested in it. I just always considered sports gambling as a better investment.

I just read about a woman who won the lottery four times. That's when I started buying Megamillions and scratch offs.

I didn't even get one number right on Tuesday.

I know the story is old but it was new to me when I read it.

176,000,000 to 1 is the correct odds.

That is not correct. I posted what the odds for the lottery is. Its taken right off the mega millions webpage.

175,711,536 to 1  Now if you want to bet, we can make a nice size wager.

we can also bet on the number of combos i posted for boxing 27 numbers with 9 mega numbers.
I have no problem taking money from a right winger
