The Tenn Lottery was created Jan 2004. They joined the Poweball a few months later. The only Tenn winner that I can recall was a small store owner from near Chattanooga who ha…d printed out a ticket and the customer would not pay for it because of a mistake in the numbers. The store owner bought it himself and won about 25mil. I buy my tickets in TN where apparently we have the worst luck anywhere. One winner in 8 years; about 800-900 drawings. (MORE)

The odds of winning prizes are shown in table from the official Mega Millions website. From the table, you can calculate the cumulative probability of winning a prize and the …expectation of the prize. - If you bought 1 ticket You have 1/75 + 1/141 + 1/844 + 1/306 + 1/13781 + 1/15313 + 1/689065 + 1/3904701 + 1/175711536 = 1/40 chances to win a prize with the expectation of $2/75 + $3/141 + $10/844 + $7/306 + $150/13781 + $150/15313 + $10,000/689065 + $250,000/3904701 + Jackpot/175711536 = $0.83. Here we assumed Jackpot prize is $12,000,000. This can be interpreted statistically as follows: You pay $1 to buy 1 ticket, and you have 2.5% of chances to get $0.83 back out of your $1 and 97.5% of chances to lose your $1. So, the expected net worth of the 1 ticket is 0.025x$0.83=$0.02, which is about 2% of the purchased ticket price.* In case the Jackpot is rolled over, the expectation of the prize will increase, but increasing the Jackpot prize from $12,000,000 to $120,000,000 only results in increasing the expectation of the prize from $0.83 to $1.44, thus the expected net worth of a ticket increases from 0.025x$0.83=$0.02 to 0.025x$1.44=$0.036, which is a trivial difference. * The calculations are brought from PickSmarter.com. - If you bought 2 tickets The chances for at least one of 2 tickets to win a prize is 1-(39/40)2 =0.049 with the expectation of $1.65. So, you pay $2 to buy 2 tickets, and you have 4.9% of chances to get $1.65 back out of your $2 and 95.1% of chances to lose your $2. The expected net worth of the 2 tickets is 0.049x$1.65=$0.08, which is about 4% of the purchased tickets price. - If you bought 40 tickets The chances for at least one of 40 tickets to win a prize is 1-(39/40)40 =0.637 with the expectation of $33.04. So, you pay $40 to buy 40 tickets, and you have 63.7% of chances to get $33.04 back out of your $40 and 36.3% of chances to lose your $40. The expected net worth of the 40 tickets is 0.637x$33.04=$21.05, which is about 52% of the purchased tickets price. - If you bought 100 tickets The chances for at least one of 100 tickets to win a prize is 1-(39/40)100 =0.92 with the expectation of $83. So, you pay $100 to buy 100 tickets, and you have 92% of chances to get $83 back out of your $100 and 8% of chances to lose your $100. The expected net worth of the 100 tickets is 0.92x$83=$76.4, which is about 76% of the purchased tickets price. So, the more tickets you buy, the chances of at least one of your tickets win a prize increase with higher expected amount of prize, and thus the chances of your getting nothing decrease, but the amount of money you lose increases when you do lose. The percentage of the expectected net worth of the ticksts gradually converges to the purchased tickets price, at the risk of losing more money with less probability. (MORE)

If a minimum of 1 person has chosen the same numbers and lucky stars as you then the chances are 0 (No chance). If you're chosen numbers are unique then you obviously have som…e chance of winning. To work out the chance of winning the first number is 1/50 because there are 50 outcomes 1 of which means you can win, therefore 1/50. Now there are 49 outcomes remaining because one ball has been removed, still one outcome will result in possible winning, so 1/49. This pattern continues for the first 6 numbers. The fractions 1/50, 1/49, 1/48, 1/47, 1/46, 1/45 are all multiplied resulting in 1/11,441,304,000 (one over eleven billion four hundred and fourty one million three hundred and four thousand) The chances of matching the lucky stars is 1/11 for the first outcome and 1/10 for the second outcome. 1/11 multiplied by 1/10 equals 1/110 The combined likely hood is 1/11,441,304,000 multiplied by 1/110 which equals The chances of winning the Euromillions Jackpot prize is 1/1,258,543,440,000 (one trillion two hundred and fifty eight billion five hundred and fourty three million four hundred and fourty thousand) To put this into perspective you are over 179 times more likely to get hit by a meteor than win. To make shure you win you must buy 1,258,543,440,000 tickets with every different combination and the winning numbers must be unique to you.. so while tickets cost £2 each unless the Jackpot is at least £2,517,086,880,000 then don't even think obout entering with the above suggestion.
