star Rob Dyrdek was so serious about winning the $356 million jackpot in the Mega Millions lottery ... he dropped $700 on tickets ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the skate mogul tell us 37-year-old Rob walked in to an AM/PM in Hollywood yesterday and bought $700 dollars in quick picks ... which he paid for IN CASH.

Rob seemed pretty fired up about his chances at winning one of the largest jackpots in California history -- but sadly it wasn't meant to be ... for anyone ... because according to lottery officials, NOBODY picked the winning numbers.

Now, the jackpot has inflated to $476 million ... the largest jackpot in Mega Millions history. No word if Rob plans to try his luck again.

so lame...i guess fantasy factory needs the publicity. Even this story was a bit they already did during Rob and Big. Stop recycling bits like bobby light and you might attract a larger audience.

Even with 700 tickets his odds were only around 1 in 250,000.

He would have to spend around 175 Million Dollars to make sure he wins the lottery. Cos chances are 1 in 175,000,000 to win. So whether you buy 1 dollar or 700 dollars worth of tickets. The difference from 1 dollar to 700 dollars is 0.0004%. Insignificant. But I bet this douche failed math class.

He's a nice guy, and i'm sure alot of that money would have went to some sort of foundation or charity.

He has saved himself a lot of money. He could have bought $ 179 million worth more of lottery tickets and yet still would have lost it. Why does anyone think they have a big sign with letter "L" next to people standing in line at the lotto places?

"L" stands for 'LOSERS'.

For $ 700 he could have had a nice vacation at Cabo.
