Harvard statistics expert gives advice to win in the Mega Millions

 The Mega Millions lottery is one of the most popular games of chance in the United States and even in some other parts of the world since it usually distributes millionaire prizes.

However, the odds of winning a big prize in Mega Millions are still one in a thousand, despite all the strategies and recommendations given by those who claim to be experts in the lottery, in particular this game.

But a Harvard statistician recently shared a strategy for playing this lottery that, according to him, is real and gives good results.

Harvard professor Mark Glickman pointed out that his recommendation does guarantee that you can win a jackpot in the Mega Millions since it has a scientific basis, based on mathematics.

In an interview for WVCB, Glickman explained that he discovered the exact number of possible combinations that exist to take you a big Mega Millions prize. The statistician indicated that there are 302,575,350 combinations for this lottery game, so the only way to guarantee that you will win the prize is to buy a ticket with each one, a privilege that very few could do, and without counting the time that this will give you would take

To this should be added everything that would be subtracted from your total prize, since you would surely not receive the total amount because there could be more winners, as well as the issue of paying taxes.

Still, risking it all on a $1.2 billion-plus jackpot, like the one recently raffled, would increase the chances of making this strategy pay off.
