Buying a long-shot ticket for the soaring $640 million Mega Millions lottery might be all the rage, but there’s one notable citizen not taking the gamble – President Barack Obama.

The White House said yesterday that Obama wouldn’t be buying a ticket for the record-breaking multi-state jackpot, Yahoo! News reported.

Still, some in the White House will take a chance, including Obama press secretary Jay Carney, who told reporters he was going to “run out and buy one.”
