You can't win if you don't play. I no long play. When the odds were only a few million to one, I played occasionally. Now that the odds are 14 million to almost infinity, I never buy a ticket. I take my chances with lightening before winning a Lotto. Yea, yea, there are those stories of multiple winners too. I stick to taking care of the business in front of me.

The Lotto depends upon people's inability to judge probability.
