Risk is the downside of chance. As a final example, here's one from the upside, gambling. Well, we say that, but of course the odds are that you will lose. Though if the UK lottery jackpot reaches more than £14m, it is possible to win for sure by buying tickets for all combinations of numbers, of which there are 14 million. Although tricky to organise, it would win all the subsidiary prizes as well, so you could make a tidy profit. Well, perhaps.

Because what if someone else wins too, and the jackpot is shared? You might be ruined. So even a sure thing can be risky.
So let's say you fancied a £100,000 Maserati, but sadly had only a pound. And let's assume you are a cool, rational customer who wants the best odds (admittedly this is an implausible combination of characteristics). If you buy a single lottery ticket, and if your choice of six numbers matches five winning balls plus the bonus number (a seventh ball drawn), then this generally wins about £100,000 and has a probability 1 in 2,330,636.

Or you could go for an accumulator on the horses: pick a meeting with six races, and in each race choose a horse at medium odds of around 6-1. An accumulator, in which the winnings of each race are passed to the next horse, will give you 7×7×7×7×7×7 = £117,000 if they all win. Given a bookmaker's margin of, say, 12% each bet, the true odds may be around 1 in 230,000 – 10 times as good as the lottery
或者你也可以赌马积累奖金:挑一场6次赛马的比赛,每次选一匹马,赔率是6:1。每一场赛跑中赢得的奖金将直接被注入下一场赛跑中,如果所有的马都赢了,就相当于你获得的奖金为7×7×7×7×7×7 =117000英镑,扣除每场赌注中给赌马运营者的费用,比如,每场抽成12%,你真正的中奖概率大约为1:230000,比彩票的高10倍。.

If you can find a casino that will let you bet just £1, place it on your lucky number between 1 and 36. When it wins, leave the £36 there or move it to another number. When that comes up, do the same again. Win and you will have £46,656. Move it to red, win and you will have £93,312, almost enough for your Maserati. The chances of this on a European roulette wheel with one zero are 1/37×1/37×1/37×18/37 = 1 in 104,120, twice as good as the horses.
