People's general feelings about Prediction, RNGs and Randomness.

Published:

I am keeping these posts here as a reminder to us all about the general public belief in regards to prediction, randomness and RNGs.

At the right time(s) in the future I want to remind some or all of you about these posts as they seem to reflect what the general public thinks that is right in regards to Prediction, Randomness and RNGs.

The only ways to increase your odds of winning are to play more - or in a double-barrel game like Powerball, to buy numbers covering all red ball numbers (thereby giving yourself a guaranteed win and at least a discount in the game - you basically buy 42 plays for $39).  The only other possible hope for increasing one's odds is to assume fault in the draw process and to play the most common numbers for mechanical draw machines or the last numbers drawn for an RNG (or some other RNG issue like a poor spread of numbers available, etc.).  Such faults are rare, of course, and would be corrected if known.

It is not possible for persons to increase their chances of winning in other ways.  But them I am a guy who has absolutely no belief in the supernatural.  For me, the Universe runs on natural law alone.

================================== 

I Fernando (LANTERN) add that I don't believe on the supernatural either and the Universe runs on the natural law of GOD and that there is nothing more natural than that other than GOD HimSelf.

It really is bad ! Frankly, now I wonder what is the point in trying to use any kind of method at all for my state now?

If the RNGs are truly random, there will be no patterns to find. So there is nothing left but quickpicks if you want to play. I mean,. why waste valuable time and energy on it if there is nothing but truly random picks?

I should have figured. Wisconsin is the 3rd highest taxed state in the USA, and the state govt is the stingiest and tightest when it comes to letting the people have anything back.

Depressing......


Life is short.  So PAY ATTENTION  !

Jade,

I'm not sure I understand what you're saying. If a computer program is developed to pick lottery combos, how could any trends even exist?  To make it as simple as possible, say there are a thousand possible combinations. The computer could simply generate a whole number from 1 to 1,000...then count down the list of all combinations, and voila ; it spits out the combination that is "x" number of combinations down the list.

The next day it does the same thing, but with a different generated whole number from 1 to 1,000. It could be ANY generated whole number; there is nothing at all to tie it to a previous "drawing" at all...it is just a completely random generated whole number ; unrelated to anything else.

How can there even BE any trends?

BTW-- since lotteries are now more and more using computers, they should stop calling them "drawings". There is nothing being "drawn".  They should call them something ese that more accurately reflects what they are really doing.

Remember those things that have been highlighted with color, they will be important later sometime in the future, I might remind you about them.

By that I mean that those beliefs might sometime in the future be put to a test.

 People will not be put to a test, just some widespread beliefs that people have.
