jova that New York lotto is BIG. DO you have any idea how many tickets are sold for that draw?jova said:It seems the Missouri Lotto has better odds than most State Lotto's
only 44 numbers to pick and 2 picks for $1
I live in New York, where Lotto has 59 numbers to choose from, so I buy Jersey Lotto which is just 49 numbers
Sometimes I get Connecticut Lotto tickets, just 44 numbers.
You are correct GillesD, it's the lotto marketers at work. They do the same thing here with Super7 1 in 20 million when the actual odds are 3 times that 1:65 million.GillesD said:jova
I do not know where you took your information for winning odds in both Missouri and New York lotteries but this is the current information that can be obtained from multiple sources:
For a 6 / 44 (like in Missouri), the odds are 1 to 7,059,052.
For a 6 / 44 (like in Canada), the odds are 1 to 13,983,816.
For a 6 / 59 (like in New York), the odds are 1 to 45,057,474.
The real odd thing is that your values are half what can be expected. Most likely you divided the real odds by 2 since you get 2 combinations per $1.00
