when I entered my account today I saw that today there will be two prizes of 5.000 points each in the lottery .... I had 4,750 points in my account and I decided to take a chance and try to get a prize by buying tickets .... but I decided not much buy and bought 250 tickets .... Well, of course I did not win anything .... useless buying ..... once again I buy tickets and do not win anything

Last time when i bought a lot of tickets for mob draw was approximate 1700 tickets. With 50 won with mob calendar i did not win anything. So i decided not to buy much tickets because the penultimate one i missed it again with a lot of tickets. I have bad luck with mob draw and mob safe too much.

There are members tat have bough between 4000-5000 tickets and have not won anything, and you are complaining about 250 tickets? If you are lucky you will win, if not... If you have bought more you could have won something... probably... or not... This is the way the story goes.

Well, 250 tickets give you at the most 2,5% chance to get one of these prizes. Most people make the mistake of thinking that because there are dubbel the amount pf prizes, their chance of winning also dubbles.

Here's some quick math: 250 tickets bought with 10k tickets total in play gives you 250 in 10000 chances of winning. After the first ticket is paid, there are still 9999 tickets left, so that time around you have 250 in 9999 to win.

Now, to calculate the odds of winning one of these tickets, you need to add all the numbers together, meaning you have a total chance of 500 in 19999. Simply put, you're still only at about 2,5%.

If there had been only one prize, with 250 tickets you actually have more chances of winning, 250 in 5000 which translates into 5%. So really, when there are a low amount of prizes, that's when you get a big ger chance of winning with a low amount of tickets.

Not totally useless pajalnick at least you had experience : not easy to catch free money so be careful when you spend your money .And when you invest your chips at poker's table, maybe that habit will bring you win some huge prize. Good luck next time

Hahaha no big deal! Yesterday I saw there was 2x prizes in the mob draw so I bought 5 tickets but I don't think buying a lot of tickets is a good idea. You just have to have some and get lucky. I guess if there was like 6-8x prizes then maybe it would be worth it to buy 1000+ tickets but personally I prefer accumulating points untill I can cashout or open the mob safe.

once I managed to turn my tickets into winning 5000 points .... it was once ... I saw three prizes being played and bought 750 tickets .... If I remember correctly ... one of today's Winners received an award only 100 tickets that he won on the calendar .... so the mathematics does not work here .... by chance any player can choose .... I mean that before the withdrawal of funds I had quite a bit .... and now I again delayed my withdrawal

Lottery just like the mobsafe is totally random, even though buying a lots of tickets makes your chances better, but it happened with me multiple times that I had over 3k tickets in the pool and won nothing with them... Totally random.

Sorry for you. I never bought more then 1 ticket per week, so im not frustrated, when i dont win.

But i got 100 draw tickets from calender last week and i won this sundays lottery.Yipiii.

So i was in with 101 tickets and got it home. This is my second time ever to win lottery and first time was in 2017 , also july month. Maybe i should focus on july, as it seems to be my lucky month

I would understand your post if you have 20 years,but you have 47 and you write something like this!250 tickets is nothing special,especially when we have two prizes in draw!members had 4000 or 5000 tickets and still didnt got anything,so yours 250 are nothing!

uh, how to explain .... The point is not that I didn’t think that I had any real chance of winning ... certainly there was a chance but it was very small .... The fact is that I spent points before I could make a withdrawal ... there were 250 points left before the withdrawal of funds, but due to the fact that I spent 250 points on the tickets I had an increased interval before the withdrawal of funds to 500 points .... this is what I wanted to say with this post on the forum

But your chances here are still greater to win this than to get the prize from any other kind of real lottery out there.

Reality is like Erru or Mober said. The same things i said a few months ago when in this forum they also activated very often Vaci38 or Maragatero. 250 tickets are fewer than 5000 and last Sunday was two awards not one. The chances are even lower. You must accept the fact that the risk is the risk.
