Does Boney think that because I have been hitting the bonus number every 15 draws or so, that by some cosmic "Law of Boney" I will be required to go 30-60 or even 100 draws without hitting.....

I think I have a BETTER chance of hitting 5 of 5 over the next 37 draws with 18 numbers than Boney does using a set of 28 numbers. He thinks positive and negative affect how the machine selects the balls......

What?

When'd I say that?

That's not true.  Why even ask me what I think if you'r going to assume, and assume incorrectly?

From what i understand positive and negative have nothing to do with standard deviation when it comes to money.

Positive means win money

Negative means lose mony

or vice/versa.

You guys dont even know how to utilize the standard deviation equation correctly.

What makes me think you guys can utililize the Kelly equation correctly?

You don't have to.

You can make up whatever utility out of whatever nonsense you want.  The Kelly Criterion is a simple concept to apply to advantage gambling and I don't care if you can't understand this simple concept and why it does not apply to lottery.

Positive and negative numbers sure do have to do with the way you find standard deviation.  At least in the sense that some tests have negative values and some don't.

EG you can lose money (go negative) on the lottery, but a specific digit in the lottery cannot come up a negative amount of times.  The test you use to find STD DEV is different in each scenario.  You could, of course, manually do the math and use the general formula, but who really wants to manually do the math of over 700 draws?  Nobody, that's who.

Dream on

Every time when I look in the mirror
All these lines on my face getting clearer
The past is gone
It went by, like dusk to dawn
Isn't that the way
Everybody's got the dues in life to pay

I know nobody knows
Where it comes and where it goes
I know it's everybody sin
You got to lose to know how to win

Half my life
Is books written pages
Live and learn from fools and
From sages
You know it's true, oh
All these things you do come back to you

Sing with me, sing for the years
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tears
Sing with me, just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good lord will take you away

Yes the bartenders happened to be fair barmaids as well!

I didn't do that well on the MM.

Thought about playing my birthday number for a second but didn't....
