HOW MUCH WOULD YOU PAY FOR A LOTTERY TICKET?

Post by CRCBrony »

Not that anyone of us gambles (or does), but if you about to play, how much would you spend on a lottery ticket just for the fun of it?

Depends on the odds, but $1 sounds about right.

My dad said this to me:
"The odds of you winning a lottery is like you are in a foot ball field with a million people, blind folded, and you are trying to stab an ant with a needle."

Your odds are all for ya. :mrgreen:

The lottery is a tax on those who are bad at statistics

Seconded.
Is "Seconded" a actual word? I'm not the best a English (anymore at least).

I think Lotto Max, or Lotto 649 is up to 55 million now. If you won that much money, what would you do with it?

It means to agree with or concur. With 55 million? Not sure how much would be left after taxes... first thing I would do is pay off my house

Your chances of winning go up significantly after you buy a ticket. After all, your chances of winning without buying a ticket are none. :wink:

Me, I would pay $1, maybe $2 if the Powerball is a significant jackpot (over $100 million). But I wouldn't expect to win.

Sometimes, I ask my parents every ONCE in a while to play. We win little prizes every so often.

So a $50M jackpot ain't worth the effort? You must be rollin' in sweet coin...

(I kid, of course.)
