Dead right, that was the point I was trying to make, I knew the Lottoists were lying about the odds.

10m/2 is 5m/1

You have to take each draw on its own and each time there are 10 million chances it wont be you. Or 9,999,999 if you play 2 lines, etc.

@ Shaggy, that was me, I'm not good with odds terminology but I think I explained my understanding of it better in the quote above.

But its the same thing You've twice the chance of winning. Yeah you still lose 9,999,999 times but the odds are still twice as "good".

Yeah, I think I said that myself. Your chances of winning are doubled but the odds of winning don't drop from 10m to 5m when you do another line. In the old lottery days when it was possible for organised syndicates to brute-force a win they still had to buy around 800,000 lines to ensure a win.

Well yeah, 1 in 5,000,00 ain't good odds but it's still what it is. Chances doubling is the same as odds halving.

Final word.100/1 odds, buy two, that becomes 100/2, it does NOT halve the odds to 50/1.

Eir by the way was taken over by a french man who owns brothels and other rather sleazy stuff so am ranting because this is the kind of thing that comes with power and money.

I loathe MaccyD’s new “order and collect” system. Very slow and inefficient methinks. Told by a manager it’s to make the food “fresher” but I reckon it’s a cynical cost/staff cutting measure.

The good outcome is that I will patronize McDonalds a good bit less in future and eat healthier food on the go.

Just saw the above post about the new owner of Eir he is getting rid of a thousand staff, and now they are going to show the Guinness pro rugby series so people who do not have Eir can not watch the pro Guinness series rugby. He does not own brothels now but owns a nude magazine like loaded magazine. He also wants to make a deal with lidl to advertise some of Eir's goods.

Their lunches always consisted of hard boiled eggs dipped in salt and ginger ale to wash it down. A picnic prepared by Aunt Fanny no doubt.
