Tattslotto $31m Mega Draw – It Mega Sucked!
I just finished checking my tickets for the $31m Tattslotto mega draw – in total, 53 tickets bought across 5 weeks, total investment of $920.
Winnings: ZERO! I mean, can you believe that? To give you an idea, it’s the equivalent of something like 1,700 standard games overall. The Tatts website claims the following odds at the bottom end of the scale:
|6||1 or 2 winning numbers + 2 supplementary numbers||144:1||12:1|
The odds of winning any prize at the lowest end of the spectrum is 1 in 144. And yet I’ve managed 0 in 1,700+. Am I just incredibly unlucky? Well, considering I’ve been playing the same numbers for five years now (my usual Tattslotto numbers I purchase every Saturday is about $165, being around 55 standard games, 16 system 7’s, and three System 8’s), as well as a big range of “Quick Picks”, I don’t understand how they can honestly publish odds like this as if they remotely resemble what you might be able to expect.
Can’t wait to go into my local outlet and scan all these tickets and get that “Better Luck Next Time” printed on them, with the cashier’s pitiful face as she tells me “Sorry, no winners”.
Interested in hearing other people’s stories from the Tattslotto $31m mega draw. Feel free to post.
Monday (2nd Jan) draw is coming up – I’ve got about $150 in tickets on the line there. Wish me luck!
