How MIT students cracked the lottery to win $8M8/8/2012
A recent government report has detailed how MIT students, while working on a school project, figured that the Massachusetts Cash WinFall lottery was good for a win on a regular basis because of how the jackpot was divided when there was no big winner. The brainiacs ascertained that buying $100,000 worth of tickets at particular times made a win pretty much a sure thing. Eventually the MIT syndicate quit their jobs because they were raking in the lottery dough and enlisted others to purchase tickets too. The MIT group won almost $8 million by 2005 and in 2010 they worked how to win the entire jackpot at once. They didn't break any laws, but the Massachusetts Cash WinFall lottery game was stopped this year. Who said math was boring? [Source]
