There. I’ve said and I’ll say it again. Lottery strategies are bullshit.
Why do I feel it necessary to tell you this? Well, you’d be amazed at how many people a week are buying in to the idea that paying for a product with ‘secret knowledge’ is going to make them rich. You’d be amazed how many folk think that some super tanned, suit wearing nobody pictured standing next to a sports car is the man to resolve all their money woes.
Trust me. Even if those cars are their own you can be sure they didn’t buy them with the profits of lottery wins. They make their money from the hopes and dreams of the people buying their scam systems.
Let’s hypothesise that it was possible to consistently win when playing the lottery. Let’s ignore what we know for sure in that for every lottery draw 7 from 49 balls are ejected from a machine that is heavily regulated and tested for consistently tested for fairness. Ok – good. Now we need to ask ourselves:
If these guys had produced methodology to consistently make money from the lottery, why would they risk splitting the prize pot?
It’s quite simple. They wouldn’t.
Each lottery draw is a random event of which has no relation to any random event that has preceded it. Studying draws of times gone will bring you to no grand conclusions. The data is useless. In being random it is not interpretable. Lottery strategies are based on whimsical interpretation and useless trend spotting.
When playing the lottery you are huge underdog to even pick up £10. Your odds of matching three balls are 1 in 56.66.
You have 1 in 13,983,816 chance of winning the UK National Lottery jackpot. You are actually more likely to die en-route to buying your ticket than win the prize itself!
Regardless of how you pick numbers your wins can only ever be attributed to one factor.
Improve your odds marginally by joining a local syndicate and pooling your tickets together. There is no other way. Don’t fall for hypey conmen sale snakes.
