Lotto ticket, in crayon

OK, so your odds of winning that super Mega Millions Jackpot are 1 in 176 million, right? Here’s a Lotto Ticket I just made using an index card and some crayons. It has about the same chance of winning as tickets that people pay for.

Think of it this way: if each of those chances were $1 bills, and they were laid end-to-end, the winning bill would be somewhere along the seventeen thousand miles of bills. You can work it out from there.

    Very long line of bills! I still need to pick up my tickets this morning. Yeah, it’s the long shot of long shots, but I’d only spend the money on coffee otherwise. ;)

    Sure, but it’s the ONLY chance I have of becoming a millionaire (67 and retired).
