: Need help:

: Simply investing randomly is not likely to give you the 100 to 1 return.

: What does "the 100 to 1 return" mean?

: Thanks!

It is a betting/gambling term and means that if you bet £1, dollar, Euro or whatever on the outcome of an event, and that outcome happens, I will give you £100 etc.

The implication is that it is unlikely.
