Hi, William. Thank you for reaching out to us. The overall odds of winning in a particular lottery game apply to all of the tickets in that game, not a string of tickets as you have referenced. We produced a video that I think can provide the details about the odds for you. We use a deck of cards to illustrate, as I think that helps people "see" what the odds mean. Here is a link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N66WI9yzTRw
