    I'm already in - I only play when it gets bigger, which obviously negates the point because the odds increase signifantly - but just the dreams of winning that much bank is totally worth the 10 bucks :)

    I bought one, also if you think about it you could purchase every combination of numbers and you'd be guaranteed a win not only for first prize, but second, third , etc... I just don't think there's enough time between drawings to print all the number combinations, not to mention the bankroll you'd need to purchase all the tickets.

    Because when it is only worth $200,000,000 dollars. It just not worth B's time. lol

    its not that... its just that the odds are so frigging low of winning
    1:146,107,962

    you'd have to have a bankroll of 146 million dollars to get a 1:1 odd, which is really a 50/50 chance.

    and then, if someone else has the same number, you get half.

    yeah that's the pisser , although the odds of someone besides yourself have all cash wining prizes is low, I wonder if it would be enough to recoup the initial bankroll
