Lotteries are a tax for the poor. Someone once told me that when the economy is in a depression the best stocks to buy are gambling stocks people will gamble more when they are desperate for money.

So what the chances of you winning. Of the two most popular lotteries (6-49 and Super 7) 6-49 has the better chance of you winning. Even for the smallest prize of 3 out of 6 numbers the chances are 2.9%. Remember the odds reset every time there is a new draw.

If you spend $2 buying tickets for one of the two lotteries from 18 to 65, a total of $4888 would have been spent.

Super 7

62,891,499 to one.
