College Professor says Mega Millions Not Worth Risk

Tonight's Mega Millions jackpot has risen to 636-million dollars.

No one has matched all the numbers since lottery officials changed the rules of the game this fall.  

Michael McDaniel, a math professor at Aquinas College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, says the changes made in the Mega Millions Lottery stacked the odds against players.

McDaniel notes one way to win is to buy 259-million tickets for every possible combination.  

He adds, however, that if someone else also has all the numbers you're going to lose money if there was any way to get your hands on 259-million dollars to place that many bets in the first place.
