They should be approximately the number of 4 seat packages available divided by the number of entries.

I have entered at least four email addresses since they began the lottery and am yet to be picked....So not terrific.

I would say odds are less than 10% from my estimate, but it just depends. All season ticket holders have rights to Opening day tickets (20 game packages and up), Rosie Reds gets a decent percentage of tickets as well, along with many businesses who have rights to some of the tickets, so you are left with a small portion of single game tickets to start with. I wouldn't hold your breath on getting them this way. Its called a lottery for a reason.
