Dan and Dave are notified that one of them is the sole winner of the $100,000,000 lotto jackpot.

Dave is told there is a 1% chance that he is the winner.
Dan is told there is a 99% chance that he is the winner.

They will find out who the winner is tomorrow.

Who sleeps better tonight?

Dave.

He can rest knowing he has almost certainly not won, and his life will continue as normal tomorrow.

Dan will be panicked thinking about what to do with the money, combined with the anxiety of not knowing for 100% sure that he's even won.

Yep. Plus Dave will have nice dreams about what he would do with the money the 1% chance comes up. It's a small enough chance that he's not panicky like Dan.
