    I remember a few months back there was a division 1 of ~20mil (iirc) and there were so many Div 1 winners each of them took $500k. $500k is nice, but ouch...

        Are you saying that you should cover all the numbers in different games?

        And then, what, ask them if you can combine two games afterwards to win?

        In what way do you think this would help?

        Still not sure if you are serious or not.

          oh yea btw if you find out how many games are played a year and how many div 1 win's there are each year you can actually work out the real chances of winning

            You are also brain damaged.

            Lol @ pro-gamblers, no such thing other than poker players. Poker players understand statistics and as such don't play lotto.

                Pro punters definitely do exist outside of poker- whether it is a front/protection for other activities is another topic I guess?

                Re- lotto. Honestly not sure if serious?

                    Think of it as roulette

                    We all know why the house has a "zero".
                    With lotto, by not having all of the numbers on a card (even though you still have to select the correct six), you are effectively taking away a potential winning number, and instead adding a guaranteed fail. Highlighted below, where the autopick entry does not include "1".

                        Yeah but you're talking about spreading all 45 numbers over how many games? You do know you can't select them all in one game right... They only draw 8 numbers per game... You do understand how probability works?

                        Still not sure if serious or brain damaged.

                          Theory is completely flawed. The only way to improve your odds playing lotto is to take more numbers in 1 game. That's the only thing that's going to bring down the odds of winning. Might go from 279,456,938:1 to 98,882,981:1. :D

                          There are plenty of professional gamblers outside of poker. I know a couple of guys that bet on horses/sports and have no daytime job. They aren't millionares but win enough not to have to work.

                          Most of the lottos will let you take a "system" bet with upto 15 numbers on a game. They're not fucking cheap though!

                          That's the only way I see of improving the probability of hitting it.

                            You either have the 6 numbers or you dont, statistically every combination has the same chance of coming up.

                                I remember a 30 minute tv show that went through all the first division winning tickets and what numbers had come up higher, I'm pretty sure 13 was up there in the top five.
