If you don't buy a ticket, correct. You have 0% chance of winning.

If you buy one ticket, you have 1 in 300,000,000 chance of winning. Slim but infinitely better odds than not buying a ticket.

If you buy 300 tickets, odds are 1 in 1 million approximately for a single drawing. Not bad. I have a disease that is as rare as that.

If 100 anons buy 300 tickets each, odds of one of those tickets winning are 1 : 10,000.

Also, here is a redpill most don't know about. You also can write off lottery losses against taxes you'll pay on the jackpot, and that's throughout the year. So you could just gather trashbins full of scratchers and spent tickets and write a sizable portion off. If you were to buy every single combination, you can deduct that from your taxes. Assuming there is no tie and you were able to buy 300 million tickets in the next few hours, with "Just the jackpot" @ $1.50/ticket each option, you would make a great profit.

Visitors to the United States are always welcome to purchase tickets for our game from an American lottery retailer while they are visiting this country; you do not need to be a resident to win. However, Mega Millions tickets are not sold outside the United States. Mega Millions is not affiliated with and does not endorse any company claiming to sell our tickets around the world, online or otherwise. If you choose to do business with one of these companies, you do so at your own risk; Mega Millions rules prohibit the purchase of tickets by agents representing players in other jurisdictions.

I will post this pasta in every lotto thread I find.
This message is mostly for yuropoors.

Bravoloto is a 'free' online lottery developed by marketluck (baguette company) in which you can win up to 1 million EUR if you get lucky, picking 5/48 numbers and 2/12 astrological signs for each grid. The odds to win the jackpot are slightly similar to Euromillions and other lotteries of that kind, i.e close to zero. But playing gives you a nonetheless small chance of winning.

There are three kinds of grids you can play :
-Normal grids, 3 draws per day at 9:45 AM, 12:15 PM and 8:45 PM GMT with a jackpot of 25k EUR
-Super grids, 1 draw per day at 9:45 PM GMT with a jackpot of 100k EUR
-Mega grids, 1 draw on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays at 10PM GMT with a jackpot varying between 500k and 1M EUR

The app grants you AT LEAST 50 normal grids per day, for free. To obtain super grids, you must fill 10-20 normal grids per draw and 150 normal grids gives you one mega ticket. (If you grind you can gain one per day since there are 3 daily draws.)

>since it's free, you're the product right?
Indeed. The app works by allowing you to play grids by watching ads. So it's NORMALLY a huge time waster, and according to an interview from the CEO the average player spends ~30 minutes per day on the app.

>Then why the fuck are you shilling this?

Because you can actually CIRCUMVENT THE ADS, by using a system-wide adblocker such as a cracked version of AdGuard, Blokada or DNS66 on Android. Filling a grid only takes 2 seconds now instead of 1 minute, and you can block all of the useless background trackers/analytics without risk of breaking the app. I even took the time to read the ToS and there is no mention of the use of adblockers.

>must be a manipulated scam then
It's the weakest link, but it's monitored by a known French bailiff and seeing their business model, they'd rather have people think it's legitimate to bring more potential customers and players. A roastie won 500k EUR in 2019.

Here are links for the AdBlockers I previously mentioned, even if you don't end up playing this lottery you can at least leave this thread with tools that WILL improve your phoneposting experience. Most of the following links are taken from Mobilism, so you can consider them relatively safe if you're paranoid about viruses and stuff.



>DNS66 for free as in freedom tards

The advantage of those compared to Adaway or AFwall+ is that you don't need to root or install xPosed on your android phone. Be sure to enable all filters in AdGuard and don't hesitate to block requests you deem suspicious.

Insane? Yes and no. The probability of someone winning tonight is extremely likely. The probability it will be you is EXTREMELY SLIM but you maximize those chances by purchasing more tickets. The loss of $600 is nothing.
Wrong. You're just a midwit of limited intelligence who thinks improbable events will never happen by sheer numbers. 1 in 1 million chance events can and do happen routinely, nay by the minute, and even experiencing life itself is a statistical improbability that exceeds this. It isn't something to bank on but to dismiss it as stupid is plain retarded and probably a cope because you don't have $600 to blow. Funnily enough, most big jackpot winners are snowbird boomers in Florida who spend hundreds on a single drawing.

The stupid person does not play at all. They lose all chance of winning. The loss of $2 is quite literally nothing for most people.

You're just a midwit of limited intelligence who is looking at this as an investment. In any case, you don't take into account the most glaringly obvious thing about life doesn't come to your mind. You're going to be fucking dead one day and as you approach the death horizon, and your body fails and your friends and family around you die, money becomes worth less and less. Sure I could drop that $600 into my IRA or some shitcoin but by the time it materializes into anything I'll be 40 years older and it wouldn't even have grown to such an amount. The value of a windfall of cash, even at risk, during one's youth and prime cannot is much more valuable than something that will come to life many years down the line when your 60, grey, and stupid from the loss of dopamine neurons.

I contemplate it just find and realize if repeated, will result in a loss >99% of the time. However, at the same time, I recognize there is likely to be a winner win the jackpot is so high and 1:1M (300 tickets) chance is far better than 1:300M.

Average loss from buying a ticket: $2
Assuming 1 in 300,000,000 odds of winning—
Average gain (after tax) from buying a ticket: $500,000,000 / 300,000,000 = $1.67

Mathematically, the odds are against you. If you were to take this bet infinitely many times, you would end up losing 16.5% more than you put in on average. In theory though, you could consider it a profitable investment as soon as the post-tax gain hits $600m (roughly $1.3b jackpot).

I'm talking more about establishing a system of net positive-outcome bets over the course of your life. In this case the average expected outcome of buying a single ticket is $1.67.

Maybe not the most exciting way to live but I'm an analytical person by nature.

It is a multiplier that's drawn by a computer RNG, ranging from 2 to 5x. It multiplies all prizes other than the jackpot so if you match 5 out of 5 but not the jackpot, you get $1 million times that amount. It's not worth it as the expected return is always negative.
