Any one else do this? I started playing this week and I won with four balls last night, chuft to bits! Bring on Saturday I rarely win anything!

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

to the peeps that do the lotto .. go down the bookies and you can do the irish lotto ..and the japanies lotto much more chance of winning ..7 days a week jakpot varies between 10.000 100.000.....

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!

im more into scratch cards than the big proper lottery. id trade em both for a few goes on the quiz machine in the pub tho :thumbsup:

thats outrageous, the diff between 5 , 5 and bonus, and 6. fucking wanker lottery bastards. anyway, i'm off to buy my lucky dip ticket

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?

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