You are obviously NOT a betting man... (or girl)

Because I fully understand and can comprehend the odds?  I understand that a person can't create a system that beats randomness without actually removing the randomness of the whole thing which would involve manipulation of the physical device used to create the random number.

No, I'm far from being the first rational human. What's your point?

Where did the statisticians who back your statements learn math?  Or did you just make that up?  If they don't know the difference between 1:175M and 1000:175M then they don't know math.

Can you explain what he tried to say?

How can you make that statement? Have you have gathered 10,000 of thousands of results of people  who have played multiple lines and won the jackpot and have analyzed the results that show line A "rarely" wins?

Ten thousands of thousands? On Pluto maybe.

In the grand scheme of things, and statistics backs this up, buying 1 ticket or 1000 tickets doesn't really matter.  Buying 1000 powerball lotto ticket instead of just one does not increase your odds of winning the jackpot by any significant amount.  Your best bet is to buy 1 ticket if any at all.

How you approach the game makes a big difference no matter what YOU choose to believe.....

One person can play 175,000 lines per draw and never hit anything. (using QPs)

And another person can play 98.820 lines per draw and hit 5 of 5 over and over and over and over.....

(self picks, of course)

This is a proven fact, not some logical fantasy BS.......

You are confusing your chances of winning the powerball with its odds.

The odds of each ticket winning are exactly the same no matter how many you have. The odds on each flip of a coin never change no matter how many times heads comes up in a row. Every ticket has the same odds, you just have more chances to win.  The odds don't change. By an unknown author.

If you change the word "odds" to "overall odds" you will be correct Thrifty........
