Would you rather get $100,000 in cash, or $300,000 worth of lottery tickets?

What lottery? What are the odds? These are all things I need to know

In the case I’ll take certainty, cash it is.

I like this question!
I’ll take the cash.

I’d have to know the “house edge” or whatever the equivalent is for lottery tickets, I assume it would depend on the jackpot at a given time which for most tickets changes quite a bit. So for example if my odds of winning are like 1 in 200 million, but the jackpot is also 200 million and each ticket is a dollar, the odds are fair.
