I read about a lady that won it 4 times, using statistics. Essentially, she looked up how many remaining rewards were left and bought vast amount of lottery tickets after presumably winning the first one due to dumb luck. She won $10m in 2010 doing this. Since she hasn't done this again, I have to presume that there's something in place to prevent this. Am I wrong, if not then why aren't the rich getting richer simply buying lotto tickets enmasse?

Also rolling for digits to use on my lottery ticket.

Last roll, sorry for shitting up this thread for anyone who cares. Powerball will be 9. If I win tomorrow I'll give everyone $1

>>1698150
What if you only win $4?

>>1698142
That's dumb, gay and probably fake too.

The game is statistically designed to lose you money, much like the roulette. No matter how many tickets you buy, your expected value is negative.

>>1698142
The potential jackpot is a fraction of the total cost of all the tickets, thats why. Any net gain from the lottery is due to luck.

There was some +ev method in the irish lottery years ago, probably similar.

Lookup Stefan Klincewicz. Whilst it's very rare nowadays, some lotterys can be overlayed if you include all smaller prizes.

It doesnt matter. The expected value of a lottery ticket is always worth less than the cost
>>
>>1698773
Except in a few cases.

People do this, the problem is logistics. As well as the cost of the tickets, you have to factor in the cost of labor to buy the tickets, as well as storing and tracking the ones you've bought.

My guess is that for the big lotteries the logistics are too expensive, and for the smaller lotteries the payouts are too low to make it worthwhile.

You can do online though?
>>
>>1698831
Unlimited amounts?

A quick Google only turned up shady-looking unofficial sites. Are there any lotteries which officially sell their tickets online?
>>
>>1698840
UK Lotto you can buy online non-physical tickets. But yeah, I'm pretty sure those systems don't work now.
