Ok, this one is not a lotto game, but the odds looked better than a real
lotto, so I decided to check it out.
The odds as published on their web
At a local grocery store, the candy bars are 4 for $1. The grand prize is payable as an annuity over 20 years. With such low intrest rates, the cash value of the annuity is probably about as high as it will ever be. I don't have a financeal calculator here, so I'll guess it is worth $600,000 for the sake of having a number to work with. Taxes!!! $600,000*.6 = $360,000 still not a bad prize.
To buy all gamepieces (you can't, I already have some) would cost 276,139,934/4 = $69,034,983.50
you would win:
Even if you figgure all prizes are worth full cash value, you don't break even, but it's better than any lottery I have checked out so far. With these numbers you can figgure each candy bar costs $69,034,983.50 - $58,763,173 = $10,271,810 / 276,139,934 candy bars = $.038 or 3.8cents each
