The lottery 50/50 rule= Playing the lottery is a Win/Lose situation no matter how many tickets we buy.

I agree playing the lotteries are win/lose situations but they more lose than win like 3/97.

"no matter how many tickets we buy."

If you're going to call something a rule, you should at least verify your facts. A player buying 46 MM tickets or 35 PB tickets with each of the bonus numbers is guaranteed to win something. A player buying one PB QP has a 96.875% chance of losing and a MM QP players has a 97.5% chance of losing.

Your 50/50 rule only applies when there are two equal chances like flipping a coin.

I think I "only" need 1 or 2 more 5 s to get the 5  rating back.

Thanks everyone for helping out..........

There are threads with zero replies that have five star ratings so it's not exactly a meaningful rating system. That being said, I added another five stars to your thread to help the cause.

I have added another 25 five star ratings to your thread. (that's a total of 125 stars).

If you still require further help, I will continue giving until you meet or exceed the five star rating.

Hope I'm not breaking any rules here.

How much of a MIND is needed to buy a QP?

I would add five stars but I've been so active in this thread it might seem like self promotion.

Knowing which state, city, store, terminal, time of day, the right temperature, the right cashier all must be carefully thought out, to arrive at

the correct wining QP.

A powerful mind indeed, is required to calculate these complex equations of time and location.

I tried to use 39 WB numbers tonight:32 34 36 56 03 21 23 50 28 31 07 10 42 05 25 26 29 35 43 14 13 39 16 08 20 48 24 33 06 11 54 47 27 30 58 09 37 52 12

and 10 PB:01 04 06 08 12 13 22 23 28 35

but I could only get 34 of the WB in the 10 PB combinations I'm playing tonight.

Made no difference, only 3 winning numbers in group and only 2 of them in the same line.
