This couple who have won a fortune on the euro lottery.
A couple who live near Cirencester.
I know a couple who live near Cirencester. Wonder if it\’s them?
Now, before you deride me as being entirely lunatic, the possibility that the winners are the couple I know who live near Cirencester is a great deal higher than the odds that all those lottery ticket buyers face when they buy a ticket.
I\’ve forgotten what the odds are for the euro lottery but they\’re a great deal higher than the 14 million to one or so for the UK one. You\’ve got to get more numbers you see.
Now Cirencester and environs isn\’t the most heavily populated area of the country. There might be, say, 50,000 people, perhaps 100,000 (with a wide definition of \”near\”). Of whom not all are couples of course. Say, umm, just as a guess, one in 25,000? One in 10,000?
The only problem I can see with this is that the specific couple I\’m thinking of are most unlikely to be lottery ticket buyers in the first place…..
