I'll buy A $2 ticket for that.
I searched wiki and it appears this will be the 2nd largest jackpot in world history.
Looks like a spanish christmas lotto in 2012 reached 3+ billion (u.s.$)
Buying 1 or 1000 tickets is effectively the same odds of winning
Buying 250 million tickets would give approximate 1 in 4 chance of winning.
Considering the $ they are pulling in (about double payout) AND the fact 40% is given back in taxes.
Lottos are almost as good as a ponzi scheme.
I buy 1 ticket to give God the option of picking me
I see people around me buying hundreds of tickets & I just shake my head.
