Since the lotto


#1

how many people won? I might google it


#2

Your not a bad guy @pedro27. I feel bad for you when you make topics like this. You should probably move on from this idea.


#3

ok thanks for being honest @TheBest but there is a true answer to my question,


#4

I’m sure you have something great coming your way. It may not be the lotto.


#5

I play in the bookies sometimes just enough might do


#6

I never won the lotto. Won $1800.00 at a casino once. U had only bet a few quarters on a slot machine when I won.


#7

The probability of winning the lotto are a few millions to one. I just play one same set of numbers for every draw which means I have a slim chance while spending the fewest amount of dollars.

Odds
1:25,000,000 = killed in a terrorist attack on an airline
1:12,000,000 = chance you’ll be an astronaut
1:10,000,000 = struck by lightning/becoming President
1:6,100,000 = die from a bee, hornet, or wasp sting
1:3,000,000 = spotting a UFO
1:1,500,000 = chance at becoming a movie star
1:1,000,000 = die in a plane crash
1:1,000,000 = Dying from flesh-eating bacteria
1:880,000 = odds of dating a super model
1:662,000 = chance to win a gold medal
1:240,000 = being struck by lightning
1:160,000 = being killed by a venomous bite or sting
1:22,000 = becoming a pro athlete
1:11,500 = chance of winning an Oscar
1:6,700 = die in a car crash
1:6,585 = injury from shaving
1:6,330 = dying from falling down stairs
1:5,000 = hole in one
1:563 = catching a ball in an MLB game
1:90 = being born a twin in North America
1:50 = celebrating 100th birthday
1:25 = chance of getting colon/rectal cancer
1:9 = chance of beating pancreatic or liver cancer
1:6 = getting prostate cancer
1:3 = living to 100


#8

I thought one of those said chance of being a porn star. I’m sorry. I’m silly today.


#9

I did not want to know the odds of dying in a car crash. I’m already terrified of driving and now I’m even more scared.


#10

I posted the probability of these odds to inform what chances a person has to win the lottery. Dying due to a car crash is still way off so it wouldn’t be something you should be terrified of.


#11

After my accident on the highway the odds dont seem so big.


#12

There are so many factors when a certain event such as a car accident occurs. Factors such as weather, time of day or night, intersection, speed, intoxication of the driver, distractions etc… all come into play. Randomness just played a part of your highway accident that’s all.


#13

Something doesn’t add up.


#14

I cut & pasted those odds from random websites.


#15

I’m a liking those odds! :slight_smile:


#16

My mom and me won $1,500 at bingo once. Other than that we play the 2 main lottos in our country every week, we haven’t won yet


#17

Chances of getting something accurate off the internet 1:43. Or maybe you have to carry the 1? Or, statistics are right 50% of the time, everytime. Also if probability theory were true every time you flipped a coin it would land upright on the edge.
