So I produced a simple table. On the face of it the 1 in 76 million odds for a big win look pretty grim
But I'd counter by saying that our new found lottery fascination is part of a multi part strategy. As my current employment comes to an untimely end it seems that slipping back into retirement (for a second time) would be nicely cushioned by some serious capital. Especially in view of the credit crunch which has made small many of those safe investments.
Part 2 of the strategy is to look for another employer for Marcus in the Lausanne area or admit defeat and leave this beautiful Switzerland for pastures new.
So we are not proud to admit that we have dabbled with Mr Euro millions on at least 3 occasions in the last 4 months.
Unfortunately our winning convictions have been savagely swept aside and amazingly we have not won a single penny. If anybody can possible explain our fall from grace we would surely be most interested.
