Re: LOST numbers are worth $150

retarded if you play the Lost numbers. Sure, there's a 1 in 176 million chance of hitting, but you want to be the ONLY one to hit it, not one of 20,000 people. It's one of the most popular lottery number combos around, playing them would just guarantee a big split.

You don't split the smaller prizes though, which is what you would have gotten in this case.

Re: LOST numbers are worth $150

understood, but since winning the small prize isn't the goal of buying the lottery ticket, why would you play those numbers? Terrible odds at prizes, but without the big payout if you actually defy the odds and hit it big...

Re: LOST numbers are worth $150

Yeah 40,000 people played the LOST numbers, if they actually came up you would get less than $10,000 BEFORE taxes.

However no one probably thought they would win $150, so I doubt they are complaining. It would have been awesome if 40,000 people would have had to split the jackpot.
