Simulate Your Mega Millions Numbers, What are Your Chances? [Link]
Not to be a buzzkill, but...we all know the odds of hitting the record half-billion plus Mega Millions jackpot are pretty slim, about 1 in 175 million to be exact. But hey, you know what they say, if you don't play you can't win, right?
That being said, someone came up with this clever lottery simulator. You just put in your numbers, tell it how many times you want it to run the odds, then cross your fingers and see how you do. Just for fun I gave it a try. If I bought $104 worth of tickets, according to the simulator, I would have won a whopping $12. In other words, a net-loss of $92.
But hey, all it takes is that one lucky ticket, right? It never hurts to dream!
