It isn't:oops: Few realise statisticians can't spell lightning:whistling: As a statistician you will know anewman is more likely to win the lottery than have unprotected sex .:-D
Well my friend got pregnant, after being struck by lightening, while having sex in a storm. So good odds for me:-D
It's only going up as each week will be a UK draw included in your ticket price, guranteeing at least 1 UK millionaire. OP is also incorrect as you can't buy that many in advance due to the increase, I got an email from Camelot last week explaining things .......
If this is the same as UK lotto, 1-49, 6 numbers drawn, all you have to do is spend £21 million on lottery tickets and so long as no-one else wins you're £50 million up. Only people who do not understand statistics play the lottery - few realise you're more likely to be struck by lightening than scoop the jackpot - also if you have unprotected sex and take the morning after pill, you're more likely to get pregnant than you are to win a tenner.
The way i see this is they have added 50p to allow one winner in Britain to be a millionaire every week wether you want to gamble on this other add on or not.
