With half a billion dollars the first thing I would do is buy my girlfriend a nice set of tits, then I'd probably do the same for my fiancÚ.

I should have bought a cup of coffee with the few dollars I wasted on these stupid tickets.


Lottery tickets

7 numbers 823,54 combinations... 823,543 tickets ($2 a piece) $ 1,647,086 spend to win $305 mil....

Thus making it a investment than a gamble...
Yes there are 5 numbers, but there are 59 numbers to choose from and 35 power ball numbers. Since numbers can only be used once per drawing, we need to do the math to exclude sets with repeat numbers.

First we multiply:
(1*2*3*4......*59)/((1*2*3*4*5)*(1*2*3*4......*54))
This gives us 5,006,386

So multiply by the number of power balls
5,006,386*35 = 175,223,510 combinations

We can then find total cost multiplying combinations with ticket cost:
175,223,510*2 = $350,447,020

If you have that kind of money you're not worried about the lottery. Even if for some reason you did pay for every combination, there's still the chance someone else will hit the jackpot as well. If that happens your investment yield was just instantly sliced in half.

Yea its funny said on the news last night the people who play the lottery are the ones strapped for cash where its not in their budget and the people that can afford to play don't because they don't need to.

So the wealthy stay wealthy while the poor get more poor trying to make it wealthy

From what I read, buying a football team with your lottery money would be the most profitable
