Armed with the 2 tickets I had won during the WBCOOP, I decided that it would be EV+ to utilize one on an entry into the Sunday Millions with the $5,000,000 guarantee ($1MM for first place).  Having cleared out my Sunday afternoon, getting the head-nod from the wife, and proceeding to click the “Register” button, I journeyed forward into the 55K+ field, which will likely turn out to be the largest Sunday Millions field ever.  For what it’s worth, this is my first attempt at the Sunday Millions, let alone my largest buy in event *EVER*.  So much for EV+.  Better luck next time.
