That would be incredibly easy to win, I'd do it in a second - IF that long.


Ah, it's still trying to pick 6 out of 49, wheter it's the six that are drawn, or the sox that are not drawn. It's the same thing as the present game, just a different method of drawing numbers.

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.


There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

    I'd just repeat the numbers from the previous drawing, the chances of ONE of them repeating is (right now) 1 in 4, the chances of two or more repeating is practically non-existant, so going just by that, I'm 'almost' guaranteed a win in the next four draws at the very worst.

    Or am I missing something ?

      "Or am I missing something ? "

      Time and time again, and it's always the same thing. The only reason the same combination is unlikely to repeat  is because of how many other combinations there are.  Ignoring the possibility that individual numbers may be more or less likely to turn up, *every* combination has exactly the same chance of being drawn, whether it's the combination you pick by whatever method you choose, or th ecombinationthat won last time around.

      There are numerous factors that affect whether a given ball is more or less likely to be drawn, but being drawn last week isn't one of them. If anything, being drawn last week might suggest that a ball is more likely to be drawn than some other balls. One thing that's positive is that being drawn last week definitely doesn't do anything to suggest that a ball is less likely to be drawn than some other balls.

      As Coin Toss has said, "picking" 50 or 51 balls and leaving  5 behind offers exactly the same odds as "picking" 5 and leaving the rest behind.  Both are  ways to choose which 5 numbers matter.

        "As long as I see my 6 numbers drawn, I don't care if they send a puppy to smell out the winning balls!" 

        That was funny!!..

        I think i would rather play scratch-offs than play a game like that...
