sid244: ginko: My boss is collecting $2 from us for the office pool so I'm getting a kick out of these replies.Who plays stratagy? EP the numbers and let them ride. The idea is that you're not a part of half of the building that is left behind when the other half wins and quits. ($2 is ok for my santiy of not cleaing up the mess left behind).Make sure you get a copy of tickets.
zipdog: Tip #7: Don't play unless you can afford to pay the millions of dollars in taxes that will be levied against you.
Special J: In 2006, eight meatpacking workers - called the "Nebraska 8? - struck gold in Lincoln, Neb., with a single ticket chosen by a computer. They won $365 million - the biggest lottery payout in U.S. history.Before they even get into their 'tips' they pretty much shoot down their own article.
Jon iz teh kewl: you'd have to print ahead of time, and SPECULATE the lotto drawing going up.some people have that kind of vision, like bill gates
NeoCortex42: I don't get why everybody gets so excited about the giant jackpots and suddenly puts down tens or hundreds of dollars on tickets. Was $40 or $50 million not enough? Is it not worth the cost of a cup of coffee until it hits ludicrous speed?I'll buy an occasional ticket. I figure I'd be fortunate to hit that million dollar second prize. A jackpot, regardless of size, would be plenty for me for life.
reillan: If I won $425 million, I would give $424 million to charity.Then, know what I'd do with the remaining million?
Nemnoch: So.. if I buy 175,000,000 tickets then I am guaranteed to win the $278,000,000 right? I'll jump right on that!
NeoCortex42: if you play "special" sequences, like the Lost numbers or Fibonacci numbers, you're probably going to end up splitting with a ton of people.
Pocket Ninja: What a lot of people don't understand about winning the lottery is that it really isn't all that hard as long as you understand one key element of the entire equation: it's math, not luck, that matters. Specifically, it's the extrapolatables.
SurfaceTension: Who actually plays the lottery with a strategy to win?
Makh: I'm no expert in picking random numbers but I'm pretty sure, 'stay away from picking numbers' is a pretty fail strategy.
PreMortem: Or simply don't play at all. Then you DEFINATELY won't have to share.Common sense isn't so common.
