The draw of the lottery is as simple as a game of bingo. There are a finite number of cards, and there are a finite number of combinations, but picking the succession of what is going to be called is what really makes it exciting. There is a definitive amount of numbers that can be called, and for math experts winning the lottery might seem easy, but if it were so simple, every math major in college would be a millionaire. In regards to outlining a winning strategy, there are several theories that continually show up on gambling and gaming forums alike.
Winning the lottery is truly all about the numbers. Figuring out the combination in a correct order can be one of the most exhilarating things known to man. Whether you’re picking 5, 6, or even 7 numbers, getting the right combination can make or break the experience. There are a few rules of thumb when considering your set of numbers, and most find that luck is not always on their side, but there seems to be a repetition that cannot be denied.
When looking for winning combinations, people swear by the randomization found in what are known as “lucky number generators”. The Internet is full of these number machines and some have won via the entries that are generated from these machines. However, for every 1 winner, there are millions of losers around the state. But regardless of how many times a person fails, they’ll play those numbers until they die, especially if the generator hits a number that is close to one’s heart.
Computer nerds can crunch numbers into a quadratic equation and try to find out the ultimate pattern, and while it seems to be odd, there are some numbers that seem to pop up more than others. For instance, looking at information from lotto winning websites, the numbers 11, 7, 17, 31, and 44 seem to prop up a great deal more than others. The same thing can be said about 42, 51, 1, 4, and 9. What props up as a pattern this week, might not be next week, but who’s to say that this week’s lucky numbers won’t be the same that prop up months or years from now?
It’s the notion that numbers repeat due to patterns in numbers that keep some people obsessed with winning big money. Is it possible? Yes. The numbers game is quite interesting as it is possible to strike the winning numbers more than once. If you’re skeptical, a quick search for Erik Martineau will turn you into a believer, because lighting struck him twice, in the form of winning the big one consecutively. Then again, if winning the lottery is truly by the numbers, then why is it that many end up winning off scratchers most often?
The easiest answer is truly, a numbers game.
