I bought 1 but didn't win?????????

I think our lottery machine is stuck on "not a winner"

I did read that South Dakota pocketed 1/2 million in voluntary taxes from this drawing.

Somebody on the news was saying if you didn't buy a ticket you had 0% chance of winning.

If you bought a ticket you had .0000000001% chance of winning.

Heck with those odd you might as well stay feeding cattle. :D

The good ole USA
I heard there were 176 million different combinations on the numbers. So if you had boughht 176 million tickets with different numbers then you'd be a winner. So divide that by four winners and you would have wone approximately 160 million and you would be a winner. Maybe after everyone took their share you would have had 75 million so you would have lost 100 million on the winning ticket.
But you could always say you were a WINNER
