This makes no sense
Why not, would you not be happy with 12 million , or only when its 1.6 billion would you waste $2 to buy a ticket.
 The same chance you to win 1.6b is the same equal chance to win the regular 12m.
  Dont know what's not to understand.
 Yes it's a crazy number 1.6b, just start buying every time theres a drawing as you can potentially win 12m or 6m whatever it is at a standard time.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Most ppl donít buy lottery tickets cuz itís statistically does not make sense
But when itís a large pot ppl use it as an excuse to buy

Good to hear that 12 million is chump change, I think that's good enough for a reason to buy.
 Using 12 or 6 as that's the bare minimum the lotto goes after a winner, so on average it can range from 6-200m.

 Yes not arguing that 1.6b is a huge insane amount.

  I guess it's all in the brain that now at 1.6 I gotta buy, while at 12m which you see everytime you pass the convenience store it doesnt phase you anymore.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

I do admit for a rational consumer, 40M and 1.6B are pretty close as they are both more money than the 99% earns in a lifetime.

Still, if one is only playing occasionally, it makes sense to play when the money is the best.

The expected value of your ticket is much greater when the pot is $1.6BB vs $40MM.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

=True statement.
 But the ends dont justify the means.
They're both insane amounts for a single individual.

No reason to be rational with lotto though.

Also there's probably a certain amount of money that let's someone basically do whatever they want financially. I think $12mm  post tax is not high enough for most people.

You're not flying private with $12MM.
$500MM OTOH...

I mean if someone's dream is to just buy a retirement house and payoff debt and live comfortably with normal vacations sprinkled in, 12mm is fine.

Agree.  :)
 I guess that means I got to start buying some tickets for the Friday drawing of 40 million.
