Last week, lottery fever hit the United States hard. The $640 million Mega Millions jackpot was the largest in U.S. history, and three winners will be splitting a life-changing amount of money.
Millions of Americans bought tickets. Some pooled funds to get a larger number of tickets. Others put in just a dollar for a single ticket. And it had just about everyone talking – even those who didn’t participate.
However winning with online poker can be just as effective. you’ve got about a 1-in-40,000 chance of doing this every time you play a hand of video poker, so the odds are a lot better than winning Mega Millions (1-in-175 million). With video poker, you can get oh-so-close, getting four cards to a royal and completely blank on your one-card draw. We remember those close calls, and it’s fun to dream about hitting a 4,000-coin payout.
