Dec. 8:

Which team will score first in the game on December 12?

a) New Orleans
b) Atlanta

I'm sure glad I "eat, breathe, and sleep" football! People who really follow football have such a huge edge for this promotion it's not even fair!

Because the NFL is so predictable!

I think people who know football have about a .0000000000000000000456% greater chance of winning a share of the $1,000,000.

No amount of football knowledge will give you any edge over anyone. It's like putting a 5 bet accumulator on at the bookmakers. It's a con.

IF you took the money that you gave Party in rake instead to the bookies and put that 5 accumulator bet on, you'd win a lot more than $100.

The only reason to play the promotion is because you are playing at Party anyway.

you are very very very wrong. the odds of going 40/40 are alot more than 1/ 100,000..40/ 40 IS basically impossible

Nothing like saying someone else is wrong without posting a reason why. Are you too lazy, or incapable of doing the math?

Incidentally, the OP was correct when he stated that the chance of Party having to pay out the million is around 1/100,000, assuming 10,000 people with a 60 percent chance of answering each question correctly.

And no , the odds of party having to pay out the million dollars isnt 1/100,00 still.

This would actually be quite helpful, as most scientists are unsure why the sun appears yellow to the human eye - their best guess is that objects so bright tend to leave a yellow after-image on the retina, but I'm sure you have an answer since you seem to be pretty knowledgable.

So if you don't get 30 points on just one of the days, you are out of luck (because you would be missing one of the 40 questions???) Kind of sucks that you can't play extra hands during the week to unlock days you may have missed (atleast that is how it sounded to me).

(1-.6^40)^10,000 is correct. You are not.
