And we all lost. Back to work tomorrow.
It's not virtually the same. The pool has a 10x or more higher chance of winning. Math
Yeah, I’m not surprised math is hard for you.
It’s no different than spending $2 for 1 ticket or $200 for 20 tickets. Statiscally speaking the odds of you winning in either situation is almost zero. The odds of winning are so great it’s not worth it. It’s the difference in .00000001% or .0000001% if you can’t figure that math out.....well you’re exactly who the lotto wants to play.
Apparently English is hard for you also.
Lol we had this discussion yesterday. She said why in the hell would you spend your money on an office pool when you could buy a ticket yourself and have that much more money.
Yeah $200 would be 100 tickets I know. It doesn’t change anything.
“If you're going to take those crazy odds, you're better off doing it on your own so you don't have to split it."
Joining the office Powerball pool can cause more headaches than gains
It doesn't change the 1 in 202 million chance of winning.
It changes the chances of you buying the winning ticket.
If I bought all 202 million combinations of numbers would I win?
For one it’s 292 million combinations.
The point is 1 in 292 million
100 in 292 million statistically speaking the chances of either is virtually zero.
In fact, your chance of getting struck by lightning, bitten by a shark, smacked by a meteor and hitting a hole-in-one on the same day is statistically far more likely than winning the jackpot
Lol, what if they win?
(No jumpers were actually hurt in this GIF)
You join every pool that you know of?
No Chuck, but dang, how could I face it knowing the knuckleheads I work with won and I didn't?
What if the others won?
Well, good for them. If we don't win I hope they do! I'm in one pool and that's good enough for me.
What if they all jump off a cliff
