It's not virtually the same. The pool has a 10x or more higher chance of winning. Math

9. ### Brownslave688You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

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.

“More higher”

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.

11. ### Brownslave688You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

Yeah \$200 would be 100 tickets I know. It doesn’t change anything.

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?

14. ### Brownslave688You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

For one it’s 292 million combinations.

The point is 1 in 292 million

Or

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?

You join every pool that you know of?

17. ### WallyBrownCafe Innovator & King of Puns

No Chuck, but dang, how could I face it knowing the knuckleheads I work with won and I didn't?

18. ### upschuckWell-Known Member

What if the others won?

19. ### WallyBrownCafe Innovator & King of Puns

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
