To everyone saying "Well, I thought they was equal odds 'cause I never saw nothin' saying otherwise..."

If I was to say what I really think, I'd probably get modded, so I'll simply ask: Have none of you ever seen a sweepstakes or lottery before? They all work like this. They advertise some big, valuable prize like a car or vacation, or a million dollar jackpot, but only one person (out of all the thousands who enter) is going to win that. Maybe a dozen others get lesser prizes, and everyone else gets stuck with a keychain or a magazine subscription, if they get anything at all.

Of course they're not going to give out a Mercedes to every twelfth person who enters. That's just common sense. If you thought that's how this was going to go...
