WAIT>>> I thought 0 X 2 = 2.....  50/50 chances at winning??? What?

That is correct Ronnie316.

I had a 50% chance of losing, and another 50% chance of losing. The math is good. Your premise simply didn't include the lack of P.E.F.

          0 X 2 = 2  What?   What's that, imaginary math?  It's good for calculating imaginary results.

                        We are talking about Thrifty's wonderful and imaginative 50/50 plan for winning the lottery.

                        I think Thrifty got confused when someone told him he could double his chances by buying two tickets instead one.  He reasoned if two tickets doubled his chances then one would be half that, thus he came up with that 50/50 theory for one ticket.

                          The lottery 50/50 rule is a metaphor for the winning and losing part of playing the lottery. I understand Stack47 point that we lose more in the lottery than we win. I feel that I spend less money on the lottery when I see it that way. It does not mean that I will win, but I might.

                            The lottery 50/50 rule is basically a metaphor for coin flipping. You get head or tail when you flip a coin. I see playing the lottery the same way. I buy 1 line, 2 lines, 5 lines, 10 lines , 20 lines etc. I either Win or Lose. It is a way to keep my lottery playing more realistic. It is a theory.

                            The lottery 50/50 rule will not hold true if I buy all the combinations for a lottery game. I am guaranteed to win the jackpot according to most lottery experts.
