The things you learn on MMM :) ...
QUOTE: If you want to increase your odds (and they'll still suck) buy multiple, overlapping tickets. For example, if you need to pick 6:
* 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
* 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
* 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
This means if prizes are handed out for matching 3, 4, 5.... you'll multiple matches of 3, 4, 5. You are still "just as likely" to win the big pot and much more likely to win multiple small pots.
This is also counter intuitive to everyone that plays. They'll want 10 numbers that are all vastly different instead of 10 numbers that overlap

It's fun to imagine - what if??!:) I buy them off and on, usually when things aren't going so well and always a few during the holidays and New Year.
Maybe total investment of $30 to $50max a year.
