Ways to stay anonymous:

1. Don't cash the ticket.  Instead, frame it with one of the numbers obscured, and hang it in your office. 
2. Give it to someone you can trust, like me to cash in.

If no-one wins tomorrow, I propose that for the next one we find 200 ddfers to put in one penny each.
Would be funny if that ticket won 2nd or third prize, as it would net only $50k/$250

It's still good return on your penny :)

If you focus on being a boss, you will never be a leader. Leaders lead people to growth and improvement.

Enough with all the math.

Playing the lotto is not about math or odds. It's all about philosophy.

When I say that your chances doubled dosnt sound right its because its ridiculous. When dealing with such a large number of decimal points, doubling your chances is not considered quantifiable.

It's compared to what we call in halacha speak a "rov beteva" . in other words, for eg. of course mathematicians and statisticians   could quantify all the animals in the world and tell you the odds of the animal not being a treifa.
But the numbers are irrelevant. You're not winning. Period. Finished. It doesn't matter if you buy 1 or 5 tickets. It is neged hatevah to win. Impossible.
It does double your odds, period.
Odds can be smaller then u have ever learned in school. Broaden your mind a little.
Next, it's not kneged teva to win. Somebody got to win so that can't be neged teva. If it's called neged teva in halacha that's different from what it's normally used for.

Um, first of all, noone won the last few tries.
Second, its neged teva for YOU to win. That's the whole point here.


It is most definitely unatural to win the lottery. I'm so sorry to shatter your dreams.

That's not the only reason we are part of DDF :)
If (when) I win the lottery I would still visit my DDF family for the TRs, advice and more

How can it be neged teva ? Look at it like there is a box with 292 mill tickets. There is gonna be a winner. If nobody bought that ticket doesn't mean that the ticket didn't win. There was just no claimer.

It means there was no ticket printed with that number.

The fact that nobody one was neged tevah.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.
