How to calculate Florida Odds! :D

Fresh edit. Something is wrong with my linking. It is just putting posters back to the this very thread instead of the website. :/ The website in my signature doesn't even link at all. Have my linking privileges been revoked? :/

[edit by mod(OD) Fixed link for you. Links in Sigs don't work, by design]

Putting the numbers aside, the simple answer is that the odds are to low to even justify getting a ticket in the first place.

The person who won 1.6 billion before taxes on a $2 investment Mega Millions Lottery ticket is LAUGHING at what you said. In fact, they are LAUGHING so hard they on rolling on the floor! ;)

Actually, it's the state(s) that are laughing at the players, week after week, all the way to the bank. :-).


Still, feel free to go for it if you like. I'll stick to my 1.41/1.36 (more or less) disadvantage on a simple P/DP bet on the craps table :-). Also, I never heard of a losing lottery player getting a free drink along the way :-).

Did that ticket ever get cashed?
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

I imagine the state of Florida Lottery Commission stopped laughing in middle of rambunctious laughter when the 1.6 billion dollar ticket won. The Florida Lottery Commission. "HA HA HA HA HA.... "The 1.6 Billion dollar ticket has been pulled up today." OH CRAP!'

Knowing something would eventually happen is one thing. It actually happening is a whole nother thing. ;)

Highest Ranking Members, can I make THIS thread my Florida Lottery Numbers Predictions thread? ;) I nearly ran my Nathan's Corner Thread into the ground when I began making a bunch of Florida Lottery Numbers Predictions Posts on there when the point of NC was supposed to be my RANDOM thoughts and feelings thread. A bunch of Florida Lottery Numbers Predictions is kind of specific, not random. ;)
