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. Wink

      "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 StarStarStarStarStars to get the 5 StarStarStarStarStar 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.   Star

            Hope I'm not breaking any rules here.  What?

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

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

                    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.    Conehead
