Do you play the lottery?
This is just a short survey for my own personal curiosity. No debates, bashing, etc. I just want to know two things:
1. Do you play the lottery? Yes/no. 2. What is the highest level of mathematics that you have completed? No further comments after your answers, please. 
1. No
2. Stats/Applied Math/Econ Major 
1. Yes (EuroMillions only).
2. Further Maths Alevel, plus stats as part of my degree. Informally, I've since studied statistics a little more during the online poker boom. Do say if you decide to open this up to comments (I appreciate that this in itself is a comment, but I don't think it's the sort of comment you expressly wished to avoid...).

Yes.
500 dollars on a 20 dollar scratch ticket. 
1) Rarely, but I'll buy a ticket on a lark if the jackpot is big.
2) Postgrad stuff past calculus. Fairly specialized using recursive methods of modeling stuff with differential equations. Statistical classes in econ/finance, mostly worked with OLS and other linear regression models, and even a little real analysis:shock:. 
Yes
But only becuase evryone at works gets in on it. I dont want to be the one guy that doesnt get in and everyone else retires. And whatever the first math class in college is. I think College Algebra it was called.

Advanced calculus (Mechanical Engineering degree)

1. No
