What's the secret of multiple lottery winners?

By Miriam Cash | Emory Report | March 26, 2014

"Some people have all the luck" — an investigation into how people win multiple lotteries — is the title of a discussion Wednesday, April 2, at 6 p.m. in E208 Math & Science Center.

Emory professor Skip Garibaldi and investigative reporter Lawrence Mower suspect some people are more than just lucky.

The two will delve into how multiple winners have won so many lottery prizes when the odds are so low, the mathematics behind their winning processes and what further investigations have revealed.

Known for his research on the lottery Garibaldi is a professor in Emory's Department of Mathematics & Computer Science and associate director of UCLA’s Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics. 

Mower is an investigative reporter for The Palm Beach Post.

The Emory Department of Mathematics & Computer Science sponsors this event, which is free and open to the public.
