Never usually play the proper lottery now, theres so many different versions I havent got a clue how most of them work! :monkey:

Been buying quite a few scratchcards recently tho. Won a whopping £16 on the weekend, and £7 a couple of weeks back, so hopefully third time lucky will be the big one :fingerscrossed:

HAven't they created a new Euro Lottery between england, france, & spain? I think the jackpot is about 150 million euros, & you got a 1 in 60 million chance of winning :uberlaugh

one of the paper shops nr me does the irish lotto. :lol:

anyways, i picked up this leaflet earlier bout the lotto, heres sum info

Main Lotto
6 main numbers, estimated 2million, approx odds 1 in 13.983,816
5 +bonus, estimated 100,000 approx odds 1 in 2,330,636
5 number, estimated 1,500 aprrox odds 1 in 55,492
4 numbers, estimated £62, approx odds 1 in 1033
3 main numbers estimated £10 approx odds 1 in 57

seems a bit unbalanced the old prizes. i.e diff between 4 and 5.

rite, euro millions. £1.50 to enter. 12 ways to win

Match Win (average estimate)

5 + 2 lucky stars Jackpot chance of wining 1 in 76,275,360
5 and one lucky star £321,119
5 numbers £68,920
4 + 2 lucky stars £6,431
4 and one lucky star £206
4 numbers and its all downhill from here
3 and 2 lucky stars
3 and 1 lucky star
2 and 2 lucky stars
3 numbers
1 and 2 lucky stars
2 and 1 lucky star

and after typing all that, i bet i cud have found it online and pointed you in the right direction. anyway, i'm bored so it dusnt matter

My Mum has been doing the lottery every Saturday since it's started, and I think we've ever only won two tenners...

Some people are just lucky! :(

Yeah, I used to do it frequently and did not win anything at all.

probability is a bitch to get your head around.

A coin flip is a 50/50, heads/tails probability.

If I flip a coin 8 times and it lands heads each time, how does that affect odds for the 9th flip?

Is it more likely to be a tail this time?
Or is it still50/50?

:spam: :builder: o_O

each thrown is completely independent of the others so it will be 50/50 everytime
Thats true

But surely the more consecutive heads I flip, the higher likelihood the next one will be a tail?
