Incredibly Depressing Mega Millions Lottery Simulator This bare-bones simulator allows would-be lottery enthusiasts to simulate participation in the Mega Millions Lottery, a major American lottery system currently present in 42 states. Participation is low-key, consisting of the selection of five numbers from 1 to 56 and one Mega Millions number from 1 to 47. Then the player can determine how many rounds they would like to play -- simulating the purchase of a single ticket, 104 tickets (twice a week for a year) or 1040 (twice a week for 10 years). The simulator then tallies ticket expenses and the occasional small payoff, letting the player know how much money they would have lost overall had they played the lottery at the selected frequency. As the title suggests, the odds are not in the player's favour. [source:mobygames]
