I’m going to guess that you want to win the lottery, right? Sure you do, that’s why you’re reading this article. You probably also want to know which state lotteries have the best odds of winning. If that is so, then you’ve come to the right place. This article will point you in the right direction when choosing which state lottery to play.
Before I get into the state lotteries, we need to look at lotteries and odds, in general. Generally, lotteries that have high jackpot payouts tend to be harder to win – The odds are worse.
With that being said, you first need to ask yourself how much money you want to win. Most people play lotteries to win a life-changing amount of money. By life-changing, I mean that it could literally change your life for the better, be it living debt-free, being able to quit your job, having the ability to buy things like new cars and nice a house, or being able to travel whenever you want.
Now, how much money do you need to when for it to be a life-changing amount? I would say winning $2 million or more would do that.
So, $2 million is enough to change your life for the better. That means that you don’t need to play the huge jackpot games like Powerball, Mega Millions, or EuroMillions. That’s a good thing because those types of games have astronomical odds, making them virtually impossible to win.
But, you’re lucky because there are state lotteries that have high enough jackpots, while also having decent odds.
I’ve compiled a list of the three best state lotteries, offering the best odds of winning a life-changing amount. Here they are, in order of best being first:
Florida Mega Money: The Florida Mega Money jackpot often goes above the $2 million mark. The odds of winning are approximately 1-in-3-million. Mega Money is about 65 times easier to win than Powerball.
Missouri Lotto: The average Missouri Lotto jackpot win is $3.1 million. The odds of winning are approximately 1-in-3.5-million. Missouri Lotto is about 56 times easier to win than Powerball.
Pennsylvania Match 6: The Pennsylvania Match 6 jackpot often goes above the $2 million mark. The odds of winning are approximately 1-in-4.7-million. Match 6 is about 20 times easier to win than Powerball.
So, there you have it – The three state lotteries that have the best odds of winning. If you live in these states, you’re lucky because they offer the best lotto games in the country. If you don’t live in any of these three states, take a look at your states games and lottery odds before playing. You could often find the odds on their websites. Choose a game that has decent odds when compared to other games that are offered.
