This is a good start. Now if we can get five more volunteers to provide us with the white balls I can finally retire from gambling.

Buying more lottery increases your chances of winning a lottery jackpot.

        You have a 50/50 chance at anything in life.

        Just flip a coin. Or if you want to make some extra money, flip a house.

                  "I hope that such a great secret does not pass by lottery post members."

                  I'm pretty sure most members already know that odds of 175 million to 1 are not an even money (50/50) chance and neither are the odds of 1 in 40 MM tickets will win something. A 40 ticket MM player has to beat odds 46 of to 1 by playing one bonus number on all 40 tickets just to expect a slightly better than even money payoff. 

                  A 50/50 chance means the probability is you'll win in half the outcomes. Did you win 25 times in the last 50 times you played MM or PB?

                    Thrifty, you have been misunderstood all of this time. As I told the clerk on 441 the other day, only one of two things can happen tonight. I will win or I will lose. See the 50/50 now? lol!

                      Don't worry many lottery post members like Mr. Stack47 are full of conventional lottery knowledge . You and Mcginnin56, know what I'm talking about. I think Stack47 is talking about the fact that there is more losers than winners in the lottery. I see it as a win or lose thing. The 50/50 rule in life. Do they still use the coin toss on the NFL?

                        You are a very smart lottery player my friend.You made me believe in my crazy  50/50 rule again.The lottery 50/50 rule brings a balance to playing these big jackpot games.

                          Here is one for Stack to help me explain,

                          I would rather save up my money and play a 4 if 4 of 28 wheel ONCE, than play a 2 if 2 of 28 wheel 120 times.

                          The object should be giving yourself the best chance of winning the jackpot and a 4 if 4 wheel gives you a 1 in 4 chance of matching five numbers. Based on the method you're using to select the 28 numbers, you'll eventually know around when is the best time to make your bet. With a 1 in 15 ratio of matching five numbers and by playing a 2 if 2 in every drawing, you'll have zero chance of winning the jackpot in 14 of every 15 drawings you play. Statistically you'll make 112 bets with zero chance of matching five numbers.

                          The trade off is the win expectation of one bet versus eight bets and the real cost of those 8 bets are $615 each. With a realistic expectation of several three number matches compared to a guaranteed four number match and probably six if you can guess the timing and match five numbers, the latter is a much better bet.

                            "50/50" means two things have an equal chance of winning or losing and that number you played had one chance of winning and 999 chances of losing. See the 99.9/.1 now?

                              "I think Stack47 is talking about the fact that there is more losers than winners in the lottery."

                              Actually it's a fact every state lottery website with MM statistics says only 1 out of 40 tickets win something, but none of them say each ticket has a 50/50 chance. To make simple, I'll just say the outcome is either winning or losing but you'll lose 39 times for every time you win. It's a 2.5/97.5 proposition.

                              "Do they still use the coin toss on the NFL?"

                              I must have missed the game when one of the replacement refs flipped a 175,711,536 sided coin: 175,711,535 with heads and 1 with tails and you're trying to convince people that tails will come up 50% of the time.
