@Mr_Pedo_Bear

Better to have £100 worth of fun, than the miniscule chance of £2,000,000 worth of fun.

Bird in the hand and all that.

Oh? So you are saying that there are the same exact odds of me getting a series of numbers each directly 1 minus the amount of each respective number of the lottery... as it is to actually get the exact numbers of the lottery?

Go kill yourself immediately.



... they ARE the same.

Matwix- Well that's heavily generalizing the group of people that do buy lottery tickets. Just because some people buy them that shouldn't doesn't make the whole group a mass of idiots. You could say that about literally anything. Alcohol is the drink of idiots, since so many who should be spending their money on other things buy up booze. Clearly not everyone abuses alcohol like that.

It was £20.8 million ($33 million) too. Unlucky.

Insomniatic - That's the point. People who don't have the money to spend on it are the ones who are most likely to buy it in hope that they will be the ones to win; sure, it might only be a dollar that time, but that quickly adds up. I'm not saying it's a bad thing to do occasionally, a lot of people do it however often it happens.

@An_egg please do the math. I play the Euro Lottery which is £2 a week. Say I invested that money roughly £100 a year and added the £100 each year. I have an extremely good interest rate of 11% it would still take 45 years to make 100k Now take into account inflation etc I'm now 70 what am i realistically going to do with the money. If buy some freak chance with the 20 million jackpot now wooohooo! Solid gold hooker robots ahoy!

There should be a consolation prize for that. It's probably harder to get that to happen than to win with the actual numbers.

I play lotto. its the rush before the draw, that you could actually win and get out of your rubbish life. and then comes the crushing reality..

Let me see. If you took that dollar and invested it every day, or that 20 or 40 you're really blowing...
I won't insult your intelligence by doing the math, but you could retire with a handsome nest-egg
I will insult your intelligence by saying that you have more chance of being trampled to death by a herd of bees than you have of winning.

Notice how I didn't say 'statistically' to make it sound kooky.

I don't really agree on the idiot tax cliche either. Sure you probably won't win, but you might, someone always does. And are you really going to miss that dollar? Really? If a dollar makes or breaks you, then sure, you're probably an idiot.
Besides, think of it as charity to the education system it profits (atleast it does in my state, that may not be a worldwide thing).

The odds this happening is 1 in 100,000,000,000,000 (if you include the 0's as a digit being guessed). It is more likely that you will guess someones social security number on the first try.

"Well said. The lottery is a stupid people tax, and maybe sometimes a source of Darwin award recipients."

Actually, from a probability standpoint, buying one lottery ticket is one of the smartest things you can do. Your probability of winning go up quite a bit when you actually play. Conversely, buying a second ticket is one of the dumbest things to do. Doesn't change your probability hardly at all.

I like that you said that despite your avatar. You're just a barrel of contradiction aren't you?

BlankTom is basically saying spultra13, Insomniatic, and I are right. It's the same probability as actually winning
