What are the odds?

Winning the National Lottery is, as most will know not likely to happen. Matching 6 balls out of 49 requires a lot of luck, with odds of about 1 in 14 million. To win £1000 you would have to match at least 5 balls out of 49. The odds of that are better, but still not great. 1 in 54,200 (approx).

The EAFC Super-6 Lotto, however, is a different story. With nobody winning the draw last night, the prize fund this week goes up to £1000. To win it you need to match 6 balls from 16. The odds of that? Only 1 in 8000.

Simple stuff really, so get your tickets fast. Ask any club player or coach, or email sponsorship@edinburghaccies.com. Tickets will also be on sale in the clubhouse on Saturday, before, during and after the Stew-Mel game.

Good luck!
