## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello,

I'm wondering if a common assumption is correct: if the odds of winning a lotto game are, say, 1,000,000:1, will they remain proportional to the number of tickets purchased? For example in the above game if a person buys 2 tickets, will their odds be 500,000:1, 4 tickets probability being 250,000:1, etc. (as long as the tickets all have different numbers).

Thanks for any information
