Lottery frenzy grips state

MichiganLotteryNow that Mega Millions is up around $400 million, there has been a rush to buy tickets. To preserve sanity, I offer this word of caution.

To be exact, your odds of winning are 1 in 175,711,536, according to an interesting piece on the Michigan Lottery’s web site. But you do have a 1 in 306 chance of winning $7!  MLive

And the odds get worse as the number of purchased tickets increases. So do the math and save your money.
