More frequent lottery winners in PA & NJ

CBS PhillyCBS Philly investigated “too frequent” lottery winners in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. You can watch the story by Charlotte Huffman on the station’s webpage.  I helped them with the analysis.  For Pennsylvania the details are similar to the one I did for Florida, which relies on the BKR inequality and log-concavity of the regularized Beta function.

A few months ago, I helped with a newspaper story on the same subject in New Jersey.
