    General Comments Regarding Odds




    "To get the probability of winning the jackpot, multiply .00000034847 by the probability of matching the power ball, to get .0000000082969 or odds of 1 in 120,526,770."

    Minnesota is one of the few states that provides its lotto players with detailed explanations of the odds of winning their various games. They even helpfully explain hypergeometric distribution, lol.
