In the span of 9 years you had approx. 940 lotto tickets. Chance of winning the lottery is approx. 1/14,000,000. And since you did 940 tries your chance of winning is approx. 1/14900. Which is 0.0067%. Yeah no

Correct me if I did the math wrong

Actually:if the chances of winning are 1:14,000,000 the chance of him winning the lotto with the next ticket he buys is still 1:14'000'000.

How many studies?

This feels like a rehashing of the ol' '67% of statistics are made up on the spot' line..
