Lottery strategy

When buying a lottery ticket, only buy one row on the card. The odds against winning are so remote buying additional rows doesn't make a great deal of difference. It's a bit like dividing infinity by two, it is still infinity. Your lucky day will either happen or it doesn't.

Now I'm going to suggest something contrarian. If you buy one ticket, always buy a second ticket but using exactly the same numbers for the same day as your first ticket. In that way if you win the jackpot you guarantee getting a greater share of the jackpot if other people also get the winning numbers. At the very least you can tell the wife that you have a winning ticket for the lottery in all good faith ....
