    The ODDS dictate that someone will HIT a jackpot if the odds are 22 million to 1, if 22 million tickets are sold then there's going to be a WINNER.Even if 11 million tickets were sold there could still be a WINNER

    So your RIGHT VISIONDUDE it wasn't LUCK it was RANDOM CHANCE and by him purchasing 100 tickets he INCREASED his CHANCES of WINNING and WON!!!!!

        Actually, that's not really correct.  If the odds of winning are 1 in 22 million and 22 million tickets are sold, then the probability of there being no winner is approximately (1/e) or about 0.3679.  So, about a 36.8% chance of there being no winner.

              Actually the probability of the lottery rolling over when Mr. Whittaker won was greater than 20%.  (This is based on my estimate that 190,000,000 tickets were sold for that draw.)  The probability that there would be a single winner, as was actually obtained, was about 33%.

                      Remember-- As I stated here before---we will be reading about his untimely death sometime soon. He's already ran the gamut of other things..............

                      Some low life will attack him and take his money that he so generously carries around with him.

                      They do it to others for so little -- and he is such a whale....... 

                      I pray it doesn't happen, but fear it will..
