You know I hate shitcoins but at least you have decent shot at making money with them. Better yet fund your IRA. Or we can split some good coke. Anything is better than pissing it away on lottery tickets.

t. people too scared to splurge on the lottery

It's like making multiple bets in roulette, it increases your chances of winning!

even if i dont win the jackpot ill definitely win at least a 4th or 3rd prize

No because people like you (compulsive spenders) fund my 401k's growth.

implying you know my spending habits without speculating

my tickets apparently go to funds for students and veterans. not a bad contribution desu. But then the big prizes are taxed just like regular income at the federal and state level but you still get to keep most of the winning

The kind of guy who seriously thinks he will win the powerball. Usually you take up a lot of time at the counter so not only are you delusional but you're an asshole too. I just want to pay for my shit but you're up there scratching your ass and wasting money on lottery tickets mumbling "today's the day." You probably stink too.

Yeah that's what I mean, every drawing always has a couple mil winners.
I like to get two when I buy gas, figure it's better than any other vice. Though I've had pretty bad luck compared to the expected odds.

Emberburn

I think the last few didnt have the million dollar winner for powerball. Mega did I think.

getting 2 drawings (4$ worth) doesnt have a big chance of winning the lower prizes on it's own. It can happen though.

if you are just going to get a few numbers then I suggest looking up hot and cold numbers and picking at least a few hot numbers with random other numbers. also according to statistics its better to spread your tickets out multiple drawings instead of going all in on one pot.

if this thread is still alive ill update yall on what happens tomorrow at the drawing

It's not like roulette because the house edge is 2.5% or 5%.

Lottery "house edge" is fucking 50%.

Anyone who plays lottery is retarded. Should played that money playing something without a fifty fucking percent cut.

Evil_kitten
Evil_kitten

And if it was about charity, you should've donated 46% of that money to veterans or education or whatever. Then bet the remaining 54% on roulette, statistically you still woulda came out ahead of where you likely will. And the vets/kids would've got more money instead of having it filtered through the govt.

SniperWish

never play roulette before
bet 10k on 22 black
lands on 22 black
walk away 36x richer
house edge might as well mean nothing

I see your point but you fail to see I have a much greater chance of winning compared to someone that buys <10 tickets.

Whenever the powerball or mega millions jackpot gets huge i'll buy one ticket. I know the chances are literally infinitesimally small, but i just like to at least have one "hook in the water" so to speak, just so I'm at least playing the game. 3$ every few months may not be worth it from a pure EV standpoint but at least it's a thrill

I think yhe statistic was the chances of you winning the powerball when kt was at a billion, are the same chances of you getting struck by lightning twice while in the middle of a shark attack. Also you arent 10x more likely to win, just 10x less wealthy, and since you are relying on the lottery to save you from your shitty life im pretty sure this thread has made me 10x dumber. Let me know how all the free tickets u get for next drawing works out.

You do realise that there is on average 200,000,000 tickets sold for power ball draw.
You have around 40 tickets, each says they costed $20. 20 x 40 = $800.

You spent $800 on tickets for a 40 in 200,000,000+ chance of winning, any you're trying to justify and reassure yourself by spewing autistic bullshit when people tell you you're an idiot, which you are.

Keep doing it though, people like you are great for the economy.

lmao what a tard, the only reason the lottery exists is it's small entry fee, the odds are astronomically low and people only buy because 'why not, I'd waste 2 bucks in something else might aswell have a shot'

But no user spends a grand on one Of The worst gambles available, you would have more of a chance continually going all in on shitcoins until you reach a million than win this way.

I actually ran some numbers for PA, and found out that Treasure Hunt would give you the highest chance of winning. The jackpot is 10000, and there's other secondary prices. I suspect if you dumped what OP did, you'd probably make at least 1/2 to 3/4 of it back, and have a pretty decent chance at the jackpot. It's still a Gamble and I wouldn't never do it anyways though

Is my theory that the lottery office decides when to build up the pot, when to give it out and to which state insane? I feel like at this point they'd be able to entirely plan out the numbers beforehand, and after the sale period closes they have full control over which numbers have been bought or not. after that one fortune cookie company somehow got the powerball numbers right multiple times there was an article saying they were "changing the way numbers are chosen". If it was random, how could you change it? I call shens.

Thats fucking ridiculous, Powerball has the worst odds of all winning the Jackpot. I did get 5 tickets just because it would be best to win that and the second prize in California is up to $600k, but bought $20 Super Lotto and Fantasy 5 because far less worse odds of winning the top prize.

Lottery isn't degenerate so as you are only contributing a small amount of money in the hopes of winning, as not playing at all means you have no chance of winning.

Even when you play, you may as well have no chance of winning.
If your EV is negative you shouldn't play the lottery. Rarely, large jackpots will create a positive EV.

In his link they have the odds of winning 5 dollars as 1 in 20.
Its honestly smarter to just bet on 22 black.

I ended up buying 8 powerball tickets in total ($16) and won $4 back. Also $13 SuperLotto and $4 Fantasy 5, and got nothing. I'm also opening up to people more about my gambling addiction, but there is still no way out. Eventual suicide is preferable to full time slavery, no matter what job or how much money.

Statistically, you shouldn't win. You shouldn't have been born. The human race shouldn't exist. However, it still happens. Probability is not reality, and strange unnatural events happen with high frequency.
You're literally trying to justify one stupid act over another stupid act. We know that lottery pays out a large amount to a very few, and that casinos pay out a large amount to many on a consistent basis, but if neither of them are you then you're fucked.
As someone who has had my share of bad luck I'm not arguing that you should ever play the lottery, but thinking entirely in terms of what's probable is just ignoring the consistent inconsistency of reality.
