In many lotteries we can see that syndicates of lottery players, usually playing through groups formed at work, win the top lottery prizes more often than individual players?
Win it comes to syndicates winning more often that single lottery players it seems logical to assume it is because they buy more tickets. However, buying more tickets may seem like the reason for a syndicates success but it is really not the reason.
You may also think that avoiding the use of winning numbers from the previous weeks draw (or choosing “hot” numbers) will increase your chances of winning.
Numbers that are drawn or not drawn have just as much chance of being drawn in any game regardless of how many times they have been drawn before. It makes absolutely no difference to a draw or the odds of a number been drawn how many times that number has been drawn in previous games.
Every lottery draw is a completely new game that is not connected to any other. It may seem logical to assume that if a number combination has been drawn in the lottery that this combination will not happen again for a very long time (if ever), but this is simply not the case.
Lottery balls, and lottery draws, have no memory. They do not remember previous draws. Every draw in a lottery is a separate draw. It is not connected to any other draw.
With an ordinary lottery ticket, no matter how you chose the numbers, gives you terrible odds. A 6/49 draw gives you a mere 1 in 13,983,816. These odds are just not very good at all and playing with such odds leaves you little chance of winning. Even if you have one hundred tickets picked randomly (like an average ticket) then you only have one hundred 1 in 14 million chances of winning. Which means you still have a 1 in 14 million chance of winning!
Now that you know that every ball has the exact same chance of being drawn you need a better strategy to win.
Instead of “buying into” lottery systems that are based on analysis of past draws and computations designed to look for patterns in numbers and combinations you start to play the game smarter.
Any amount of data from past lottery draws will not help you increase your chances of winning a lottery prize. What you must do is start using mathematical systems that work with the law of probability which is what the lottery is based on.
