I have a 1:92 chance…

…of winning $100 in the NC Lottery Merry Millionaire raffle set to occur in a few moments at 5PM EST. This is because I bought two of the $20 tickets intending on giving one as a Christmas gift but I didn’t. So, based up on the number of tickets sold = 368,000 divided by 2000 (the number of $100 winning tickets that will be drawn) my chances are 1:92.

So thinking of this another way that’s 92:1 chance that I wasted $40. That’s the way I’ll think about it for the next 34 minutes to avoid the disappointment of not beating the odds.
