This tool helps you estimate your potential lottery winnings based on your ticket information.

## How to Use the Lottery Estimator

This lottery estimator helps you calculate the estimated net prize you might win based on the price of lottery tickets, the number of tickets you purchase, the total number of possible outcomes, the prize amount, and the tax rate.

### How It Works

- Enter the price of a single lottery ticket.
- Input the number of tickets you plan to purchase.
- Provide the total number of possible outcomes (how many different combinations there are to win).
- Enter the total prize amount to be won.
- Input the tax rate that applies to the prize.
- Click the “Calculate” button to get the estimated net prize amount.

### Calculation Explanation

The calculator first determines the probability of winning using the formula: (Number of Tickets / Total Number of Outcomes). It then calculates the estimated gross prize by multiplying the probability of winning by the prize amount. Lastly, it deducts the tax from this gross prize to give the net prize amount.

**Limitations:** This estimator provides a rough estimate of your potential net prize. It does not account for other potential deductions or complex tax scenarios. Always consider consulting financial advisors for accurate financial planning regarding lottery winnings.
