If I were Filthy Rich

+30 To give you an idea of how hard it is to win the lottery:

Here in Australia at least, you can choose a system game. If you choose a system 18 (most expensive game) in a general lottery (1 million dollars). Costs about $13k AUD just to play a single game. But you can choose 18 numbers, but you only need 6 numbers to get the lottery from 1-45.

I pretend played with 18 numbers, and failed many times. I hypothetically lost money in 6 digits. I couldn't even land 5 out of 6 numbers.
