Right, so I've just put my ticket on.

When I win, how much will I be giving to the Swiss government?
Depending on which kanton you live in between CHF70-90 Million (on the 225 Jackpot)

(from last weeks 20min)

You are looking at two uncorrelated events. The probability of any combination at any given time is exactly the same, that including a sequence of 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 and 9, for example.

On another note, winning two draws in a row with the same set of numbers is as you said, much less probable (and the same as winning two draws in a row, but with two different sets of numbers).
Yes thanks for that I was the one saying there was no point looking at previous draws too! Contradicted myself there lol It's a psychological bias I guess and what works in one direction doesn't really work in the other...

When you win? slightly over optimistic there lol, but if you win you will have to pay 40% or so? Maybe you can come to an agreement with the Tax authorities?

Tonight! Every Tuesday and Friday...

There is an app for that... but swisslos.ch or national-lottery.co.uk will show the winning numbers as soon as they're drawn... I usually check before going to bed... which is not necessarily a good idea...

Re: Euro-Millions Change: Jackpots will get bigger!!!

Yes, WHEN I win, so really not sure why you are all putting tickets on now, the best you can hope for is half the jackpot.

So I'll just need to be satisfied with approx 135mill. That'll do I guess. My wife told me someone in her work said they can take up to 90%, I figured this was quite simply ridiculous.

Well, I've had two speeding tickets and a parking ticket in two months, so I'm doing my best.

OK, I'm going to get a few now. If I win I'm giving 7 of you 1 million chfs and having 7 of you beaten to within an inch of your lives by hired goons. I feel that this is broadly fair.
Seven has now become my lucky number.

Can you PM me your numbers so I get to win the other half?

Whatever is left after tax works for me.

Re: Euro-Millions Change: Jackpots will get bigger!!!

I will put it all in managed funds and spend none of it. I estimate my resultant income will be about 200 000CHF per week. I reckon as long as I don't live in central Zurich I can make out on a monthly basis.

Re: Euro-Millions Change: Jackpots will get bigger!!!

Maybe I'm wrong...but isn't swiss lotto only for swiss citizens ?
I thought I read it in the fine print somewhere...
