Very small/classical question.
If you are European fellows you for sure know that the European lottery, named EuroMillions is "offering" today something around €125,000,000.
Damn, that's a pretty nice amount, and for once I realized that I should perhaps give it a try, a simple ticket is only about 2€. But then even for 2€, does it really worth it, or do I have more chance to get struck by lightning ?!
As explained on Wikipedia link, a single grid is composed of 50 "classical" numbers & 11 stars (numbered from 1 to 11). You have to select 5 numbers & 2 stars per grid.
I know this is an old fashion question, but from what I have read here, I would be very interested to hear more about what you, gentlemen, are thinking of this.
Probabilities to become a strike lightning survivor, and/or multimillionaire strike lightning survivor would be some nice to have :)
*Update, after the lottery *: I forgot one value ... the fact that on the lottery day, you can go back home too late to be able to buy a ticket, no matter what's the weather looks like.
And to be honest, the sky was very nice yesterday with no clouds, and no lightning at all, but I was not able to buy a ticket and to play the lottery, so it makes easier the computation of winning chances ;)
