Yes... you can actually increase your chances of winning...but how?
Your odds of winning the Mega Millions jackpot are 1 in 302,575,350 tonight...no matter which numbers you pick or where you buy your tickets at.
Mathematicians do say however... that if you want to increase your chances...the simplest way to do that is to buy more tickets.
Think about it: Two tickets give you twice the chance (though your odds are still minimal).
Let's just say you bought 100 million tickets.. that would give you 100 million chances but you could still lose, and lose $200 million in the process...duh. Is it worth it??? NO!!!
For those of you who feel some numbers are used more often then others...

Richard Lustig is the Florida man who claims he won seven lottery jackpots. He is now getting rich -- not from lotteries -- but from his book, "Learn to Increase Your Chances of Winning The Lottery"
Here is what he suggests:
- Play the same numbers every drawing
- Never buy fewer than 10 tickets.
- If they are random numbers, buy them in a row and from the same machine.
- Set a budget, and do not exceed it, no matter how big the drawing.
- Never spend your rent or grocery money on tickets.
Good Luck tonight... I just hope someone who really deserves this wins.
