First, the lottery is designed for you to lose money. PLEASE DO NOT EVER plan on it being a nest egg of any kind. While our reports are built to help our subscribers try to win the big prizes, the odds are not in anyone’s favor and should never be used as a type of financial retirement plan.
Overall odds don’t change for a game throughout the life of the game. The detailed odds for the top three prizes definitely DO change over the life of the game. That’s what we track. Sometimes the odds of winning one of those top three prizes changes by a factor of 5 or 10 times better. So, if you’re going to gamble, you should only gamble on the games where the odds of winning a big prize are considerably better in your favor.
How much to spend totally depends on your disposable income. Do not spend more than you can afford to lose. As for how much to buy, yes, if you look at the overall odds and buy 2 or three more tickets that the overall odds, then you’re probably going to win something. It might not be a huge win, but will probably (but not guaranteed) payback for at least one of the tickets you’re buying.
