Of course you could always go the charitable lottery route, where the odds of winning are even better. Charitable lotteries however require a bigger up-front commitment with tickets costing upwards of $50 a pop thought the money does go toward a good cause. (dreamlottery.ca has a list of charitable lotteries in Canada by province.)

And in case you were wondering, McDonald’s Monopoly Game is one of the worst “lotteries” going. Your chances of winning big with the fast-food chain are even worse than at the big national lotteries. Just how poor are the odds at McDonald’s? Let’s just say your odds of winning a $1 million collecting Park Place and Boardwalk game pieces are 1 in 307 million. Suddenly Lotto Max doesn’t look so bad.
