I'm not sure if that's how they calculated the odds and am too lazy to do the math on my own, but it seems like that is an interesting idea...
Wild,This payout is big enough to do just that,and I believe they said you would still net roughly 117 million...the catch..
If you take 5 seconds to fill in each combination on cards you will need 28 years.
You would exhaust the countries supply of Play cards,as well as the special paper,and ink for the machines..

Well I already have a couple of minions of my own design, and they are already evil, so you can have the rest of the minions to yourself.
If meat is murder, I'll have a beer with the murder please.
