SORRY NOT A WINNER - Canada's Lotto 6/49

This is a non-timelapse video I made and I thought I would share it in the Off Topic section. I wanted to graphically show 1 in 13,983,816 odds of winning the jackpot. It's mostly a Google Map screen recording but I did shoot the pennies at the end.

I like it - just one thing I would add is the length of the transcanada hwy so you can get and idea of how much difference it is from the length of the winning number 540mm vs how many kilometer (or even the length of the Hwy in mm)

Thanks for the comments, based on pixelbot's suggestion I have edited the video. The old video has been replaced with the new video.

once you get the logic, its a good representation of the long odds of winning. And you did pick one of the loneliest parts of the whole highway. It does truly represent the middle of nowhere.

I forget who said this but I've heard the lottery referred to as "a tax on those who aren't good at math"
