Winning the Togel88 is a dream shared by everyone who rolls up to the counter every week and lays down their favorite numbers, hoping feverishly that a major miracle will happen and those numbers will come up! Of course, with the odds of winning the major prize in the range of many millions to one, there is really no expectation of winning the jackpot, but it is still exciting to hit a few numbers and maybe pick up a few dollars.
Nobody – repeat NOBODY – can offer a system that can guarantee winning the lottery. The reason that lotteries are so popular is the perception that every entry has as much chance of winning as the entry that the person in front of just picked up, and the entry that the person behind is also going to pick up. Because the numbers are drawn exactly the same way, under strict controls and supervision, there is never any question of bias and if your numbers aren’t picked up, well, that’s just fate crushing your dreams of extravagance and luxury once again!
However, rather than picking numbers randomly, there is a different approach to take. Because lotteries have been going for many years now, it is possible to get the histories of previous draws. These histories show which numbers have been drawn, and by analyzing this data it is possible to use maths to select pools of numbers which are more likely to be drawn (or, conversely, more likely NOT to be drawn).
So, how can this be easily explained? Let’s take an Einstein-inspired ‘thought experiment’ to present a relevant analogy that everyone can understand.
Instead of numbers, let’s take a group of fifty people. Imagine that they are all in a room, and you are in a different room, unable to see them. Each person is numbered from one to fifty.
Now, someone comes up to you and says ‘Six of the people in the next room have a cold. If you can pick at least three of the people with a cold, you will win a prize. This prize increases as you correctly select more people, up to the full six, where you win a million dollars.’
Sound familiar? OK, without any further information, your chances of picking the six people who have (unfortunately!) contracted a cold are astronomical. Your chances of just picking one of those is only two percent, let alone picking all six.
However, I have left something out here, something very important! You are, in fact, given a few bits of information about the people in the next room. This is summarized as follows:
From this information, we can start to group the people into smaller pools who are more likely to have a cold. The elderly people who got drenched are more likely to have the cold than the children. The three desert-dwellers who visited the mountains are more likely to have a cold than the seven who did not. The five people who visited aterday are more likely to have a cold than the seven who did not.
Whilst you can’t predict who will have a cold, the above statistics give you a very good indication as to what your chances are of picking a cold. You need to group the numbers into smaller pools as indiscriminately as possible, whilst at the same time considering that the numbers may not be equally likely.
What can you do with this information? Quite a lot, as the next few paragraphs will reveal.
First, let’s look at the chances of picking a cold number from a known past draw.
The chances of a cold number appearing on any UK lottery draw are between 1 in 14 million and 1 in 47 million (for the six number draw), or 1 in 98 million for the correctly matched jackpot number. These are pretty awful odds when you think about them, but it’s not impossible to think that you could win the jackpot if you pick the number.
With the European lottery, the chances are a bit better. In the UK lottery, the first thing to do is to pick the relevant Euro lottery number. Because of the number of prizes available, it is advised to choose an even number in the number groups 1 to 12, including 1 to 24 and 25 to 36. Three or more numbers in the same colour is a good idea. Always remember to select a number from 1 to entries 25 to 36 – otherwise known as the ‘pull number’ – because this is the most difficult part of the game and the ball often plays out of sequence.
With the USA lottery, predictability doesn’t count for anything. In Georgia, for instance, the most repeated lottery number in the last 100 draws was 12. It repeated itself for an average of 47 times more than in the other 50 states.
