giving "any" a try


This week I am giving ANY a try.

I will pick five 6-way numbers and one 3-way number to play for 14 draws. Each number will be $.50. This cost $42 for the week. The chance of a 6-way number hitting is 6/1000

and five 6-way numbers will give me the opportunity of hitting 6/1000 x 5= 30/1000. That's 3/100 or 3%. The single 3-way number is a 3/1000 chance of hitting. Added all together my chance of hitting is 3.3% for next week. That seems like a small percentage but 1/1000 or 0.1% is even smaller. I know that your chance of hitting increases as more numbers come out but I won't think about that. I am treating each draw like it's the only one and saying that there is a 3.3% chance of hitting for that week. 3.3% chance of hitting each draw.

If I don't hit in at least two weeks off this system then I know my luck is <snip>ed.
