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.

Mathematically your odds are ten times better if you have ten tickets. 1/29M vs 1/290M.

10xnil=nil
290,000,000 x nil = nil. However, 290,000,000 x 1/290,000,000 = 1, or a 100% chance of winning.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

We can do a $0.20 pool but we would need at least a minyan to start..

They're both statistically 0.

Heavens, no! If there would be 290,000,000 DDFers, nobody would be able to discuss anything.

Nope. Whoever finds out about that takes it to the grave. It's called UPS Express.
