Mega Millions Mania – Nationwide

Today, Friday’s Mega Millions jackpot stands at an estimated $540 million dollars. This is the highest jackpot in this country’s history. The question many are asking is, is it worth the “investment?” I think so.

Here’s what I’ve figured. If you started buying lottery tickets the day you turned 21 and continued buying one every single day until you turned 66, you would spend a little over $20,000. Sounds like a lot, doesn’t it? Here’s another thing to think about. Just one win of all five numbers, but not the “Mega Multiplier,” would award you $250,000. That’s over ten times your lifetime investment.

Sure, on every drawing, they say the odds of winning the jackpot are about 1 in 178,000,000. Here’s what you need to think about, though. The odds of winning anything at all? 1 in 40. Even if you win the bare minimum of $3, the odds are in your favor of coming out ahead by the end of your life.

The most basic fact is, and will always be, if you don’t play, you cannot win. To all of those wishing to call the random lottery ticket a waste of money, I ask you to look at the figures above. I promise you, the logic is sound. I could never call anything that costs a buck a “waist of money.” What else would you rather spend a dollar on? A double cheeseburger? Right. That’s what I thought.
