Some people claim that lotto number patterns and trends do not exist. And, as usual they stand behind the same worn statement in their defense. ‘All wagers have an equal chance of winning.’ This may surprise you but, I agree with this statement.
It is amazing that these critics know better than to apply the same logic to other types of agen toto . Saying that ‘Everybody that plays Blackjack has an equal opportunity to win.’ would be an example. Why? Because, they know that a player can improve their chances of winning.
For instance, by counting cards the player would know that at certain times his chances of winning are better than others. This knowledge doesn’t always work, but, over time, it can be worth a lot.
If they applied their philosophy to horse racing, then all horses would have the same chance of winning the race. Before the race starts, when all the entries are lined up at the gate this is true. And, yet, it is common knowledge that some entries have a better chance of winning than others.
Even the track admits that. The odds are posted on the tote board for everyone to see. The track uses computers to analyze the past races of each horse to determine the odds of winning for each horse in the race.
The same argument can be made for every kind of gambling from craps to roulette to keno and on and on. And yet, it is in games of chance where everyone has the same chance of winning, where professional gamblers make a living. So, how do they accomplish this apparently impossible task? They play the odds.
This is the part of the equation that lottery number analysis critics ignore. Their failed reasoning is that because all numbers are equally likely to win the lottery, that there is nothing you can do to improve your chances of winning the lottery. That assumption is flat wrong. Instead, why not do what professional gamblers do; play the odds?
This is what I’m talking about. As I’ve said, I agree with the critics philosophy. But, that doesn’t mean I’m going to waste my money on 1-11-19-27-35-47 in the next lottery drawing. Why not? The wager contains all odd numbers and lottery statistics show that this is a very poor wager. How do I know that? Let me show you. I’ll use Lotto Texas in this example.
Lotto Texas is a 6 out of 54 drawing. Therefore, there are 25,827,165 possible 6 number combinations and each wager has the same chance of becoming the lottery jackpot winner. But, did you realize the number of wagers with all odd numbers is only 296,011? Did you?
This means that the chances that one of these wagers will be the lottery jackpot winner is only a mere 1%! That’s a longshot at 100 to 1. Therefore, you would have absolutely no chance of winning the lottery jackpot in 99 of the next 100 drawings. Do you really want to do that?
If you were playing Blackjack and had 20 showing, would you say hit me? Would you bet everything on a 100 to 1 shot at the track? In Texas Holdem, would you go all in on the river if there was only one card in the deck that would make your hand a winner? Do you regularly bet on 100 to 1 shots? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you don’t need to read this article, you need some help.
