Avoid These Lottery Mistakes
Working with reports and establishing possibilities is quite attention-grabbing though occasionally of no use
There are many great instances of attention-grabbing details and statistical analysis which aren't very relevant to our everyday lifestyles. Did you already know, for example, that in the mid 80s the authentic National Aeronautics and Space Administration numerical probability for a mishap to occur to a space shuttle was 100 thousand to one. Right after the space shuttle Challenger tragedy it was changed to one hundred to 1!
Just consider exactly how incredible it was to everybody and how stunning it continues to be when a bloke used his one thousand dollar lottery prize to buy another ticket that won him $1 million! The probability of this materializing are monumental. Very auspicious indeed.
What would you think of a guy who earned a regular working man's wage but spent most of it on lottery tickets? Well there is a New York man who does just that.Unfortunately Mr. Ray Otero has the mistaken belief that his has a greater chance of winning a jackpot prize in a lottery by buying more tickets!
The truth is that, statistically, buying more tickets, that are chosen randomly and not using a mathematical system, does not increase your chances of winning a prize in the lottery at all!
Statistics can tell us some depressing things. For example, if someone purchases a UK lottery ticket on a Monday, for a weekend draw, they are more likely to be dead when the draw takes place than they are of winning the jackpot prize!
This is because you have a measly fourteen million to one chance of winning the UK jackpot.Every ticket you buy has the same odds of winning.
However, it is possible to increase your chances of winning the lottery when you use the mathematical statistics to your advantage. Let's take a wheeling system as an example.
When you wheel and extra number in your pick of 6, so that you pick 7 numbers instead and then "wheel" so that all numbers end up on a ticket together two things happen. You have to buy more tickets therefore your lottery stake money goes up. But, an interesting thing happens - your odds of winning go up in leaps and bounds.
In the UK lottery just wheeling an extra number (so you pick 7 numbers instead of the standard 6) you reduce your odds of winning from 14,0000,000 to 1 to only 500,000 to 1!
Although wheeling is not the most successful of lottery systems (there are much more precise ones that guarantee a win) if Mr. Otero had used such a system (and his $30,000 a year lottery stake money) and played it with a 6 from 49 draw he might have been celebrating a lottery win a long time ago!
