I distinctly remember BBB admonishing Nathan from giving horrendous gambling advice as if she is providing a fact. The above should result in a suspension, hopefully Martingaled....




Why not let the mods do there job instead of being the class tattle? Have you nothing better to do? Maybe go tell some people that make one tenth what you do how irresponsible they are, or something constructive? If something is suspension worthy, do you not trust the mods to be able to do their jobs? Do you think they are so incompetent that BBB needs to be reminded what she said?

I strongly feel this post is a person insult directed at me. :-)

Can you expand on that? They didn't mention that on 60 Minutes. How did the lottery terminals help?


I think this story came out years ago and was "refreshed" with the recent 60 Minutes piece. Older story:

Whatever you feel about Nathan, she sure has put the lottery seed in my head. Sometimes I think about driving out to the Primm border to buy some tickets.

There is a forum I visit occasionally that is devoted to the lottery. They have general discussion (where I try to correct people's superstitions), and there is a subforum that has nothing but lottery number predictions. I'll post the link if allowed.

Glad this got reopened, because I wanted to ask this:

Nathan, youíve been here a few years, now itís time to make your friend Mission146 proud. No cheating!

If the overall odds of the ticket winning are, in fact, one in eight AND of all winning tickets, only 5% win more than $1.00 extra what are the overall odds or probability (your choice) of one ticket winning more than $1 extra?



The overall odds or probability of one ticket winning more than $1 is about 2 percent IMHO.
In both The Hunger Games and in gambling, may the odds be ever in your favor. :D "Man Babes" #AxelFabulous "Olive oil is processed but it only has one ingredient, olive oil."-Even Bob, March 27/28th. :D The 2 year war is over!

What is so complicated about it?" Wizard, August 21st. :D

The way I see it, once that 1.6 billion dollar ticket is pulled up, the frenzy is OVER. Even people who were talking crap about how bad Lottery Odds were were buying tickets themselves when it reached the billion dollar mark. So, no more Frenzy=less people playing money in the Lottery=Oh crap from The Florida Lottery Commission. ;)


Figure I let you know that your correct about this.
