How to Get Rich Playing the Lottery*
Prof. Jordan Ellenberg of the University of Wisconsin-Madison presents: How to Get Rich Playing the Lottery*. For seven years, a group of students from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology exploited a loophole in the Massachusetts Lottery's Cash WinFall to win game after game, eventually pocketing more than $3 million. Ellenberg will reveal how they did it, how they got away with it, and what it all has to do with the mathematical notions of expected value and projective geometry.
*We will not actually help you get rich playing the lottery.
