Massachusetts Lottery - Improve Your Odds
Use this guide to determine when to play a specific game in the Massachusetts lottery.  This page focuses on the odds of playing any particular game and what I call the "Expected Value" to determine when is the best time to play.
Massachusetts
Mega Millions - Avoid
Based on the odds of playing the Mega Millions, the Jackpot shoud be at least $143,752,177 before you consider playing.  I do not recommend playing Mega Millions games because the odds are far too astronomical for you to affect.
Cash Winfall - Play
This game has great consolation prizes and reasonable odds.  You should save your money and play after the jackpot hits $4.3 Million.  This is by far the smartest game to play in the Massachusetts Lottery.  Here are your odds for Cash Winfall.
MegaBucks - Play
Here is another good game to play in Massachusetts.  It has higher odds of winning the Jackpot than Cash Winfall but it does not have the great consolation prizes.  You should play this game when the jackpot reaches $4.1 Million.  Here are your odds for MegaBucks.
This might seem like a good game to play if you look at the odds, but the jackpot amount just isn't worth it.  The Expeced Value of this game is .56.  Here are your odds of winning Mass Cash.
