Become a lottery winner not a loser?

    To win from the lottery you must choose from 2 options, which will prevent you from being such a loser !

    1. Increase your odds with the same amount of initial investment, but then risk losing it.(save for the month then bet it all on one draw)

    2. Dont risk losing a penny of your initial investment and instead profit in the long run.( Save up what you would have bet and place it in the bank)

    <do not promote your Hubs in the Forums>

      Firstly, you are not allowed to start threads to entice people to hubs. This is against the rules. Secondly, your thread makes no sense whatsoever. Let me explain.

      1. This does not increase your odds of winning. To be hypothetical, if you bought one ticket for a lottery draw at odds of 1 in 1million to win, your odds are 1 in 1 million. If you did this for 4 weeks, your chances would be 4 in 4 million. If you did not play for 3 weeks, your chances would be 0 in 3 million. 4 tickets would give you odds of 4 in 1 million. 4+0=4 3m+1m =4m. Your odds are exactly the same, a 4 in 4 million chance of winning the lottery each month.

      2. Putting money in a bank is not going to win you the lottery.

      Epic Fail.

        im sorry i am new to hub pages.
        Also i think you miss read my line, how to Win 'from' the lottery. This method helps you to save money which you otherwise may have lost and therefore in the long run perhaps invest that money where you can earn interest, thus it can be interpreted as profiting from the lottery or winning from the lottery.
        I am sorry once again if i have broken the rules, but as of yet i am just getting up to date with hub pages.

        Do I play.... errr... I try to play sometimes, but no I am absolutely shocking. My best mate is a tennis coach, just the kids, and another good mate is a pro player. Even they cant sort me out. I think I was probably born void of any kind of hand-eye co-ordination ability lol I can play a bit of footy though.

        Welcome to hubpages Tom.

    With all respect, I don't see how putting your money in a bank is winning much of anything. Since the national average interest rate on savings accounts is well below the historical average inflation rate, wouldn't you actually be losing money by putting it in the bank? I suppose you would be losing less than if you played the lottery, though. smile
