Default Now that you're a math many lottery tickets do I need to buy

to win the 500 million bux in the Mega Millions tomorrow?

I figure 6. Too many? Too few?

If I am X and one of a bazillion players, and the cash take away is only 250 million after taxes, is it even worth my time to buy ONE ticket?

And, my plan is to buy 6 tickets, but all with the same numbers on them, so I can win 6 times, eh? Pretty damn smart thinking, right?

OR, do I buy ONE ticket, and a six pack of Dos Equiss?

A conundrum wrapped in a burrito, stuck in a bog and surrounded by rattlesnakes...what to do????? What to do????

OH wait, I have a book somewhere on CASTING a winning Lottery Spell.

Hope I can find it in time.

PS. Maybe 10 tickets with the same numbers would be better for figuring out the splits. ONE ticket for SowPubbers only. Wish me luck. NAH, don't bother, I gots me SPELLS workin for me.

My dad was a math professor at one time. Good thing he's dead and doesn't have to see this.
