from Yahoo News.

"Months after winning $1M in lottery, man wins $2M"

"John Wells of the Missouri Lottery said the chances of winning $1 million in the "$100 Million Dollar Blockbuster" game are 1 in 2.28 million. The odds of winning $2 million in "Mega MONOPOLY" are about the same.

The chances of winning both?

Because they're independent games, it is impossible to calculate the odds, Wells said."


Huh? Say what?
