It’s a 50/50 chance to be fair. You either win or you don’t.

I will never so lucky dip ever apart from euromillions. But the problem with euromillions is that literally no one knows the rules so they just pretend no one has won every week.

Maybe the advisor had put it all into GME for them

I don’t understand this one, what am I missing?

It’s obviously true that it does have the same odds as any other set, problem is you’d be sharing the jackpot with loads of other people.

IIRC Winrar is a software programme used for unzipping files that was free but had a voluntary payment option. No one ever used that voluntary payment option.

Winning with loads of other people would be such a strange sense of disappointment. Euphoria mixed with complete anticlimax.

Think I’d hate to win the lottery

just guilt and stress for the rest of your life

I used to be in a syndicate at work many years ago, I always put the same numbers on again myself so that if we won the jackpot with my numbers I’d have (in theory) half the jackpot plus one tenth of the other half. Always liked to imagine their faces when I did the big reveal.
