Yea, but Jarett...

they lowered their odds by over 79 million. As high as 3400 to one is. If I had the chance, I'd have bought a ticket in that group. My investment would be only a dollar, but the possible return would be many thousands. Sure the higher investors get the bigger share, but on an enormous pie... I can live off those crumbs!

If the factory workers had bought one of the four winning tickets, someone who invested one dollar in the pool would have recieved a cash option, after taxes prize of about $300.

Admittedly, I don't have all the variables at my disposal to factor down the results... but I'll side with ya if you'll pass me the $300. I'm so easy to please!
