"You are playing number combinations that have better odds for that one draw.

Does it really matter that statisticaly you will have to "pay back" those odds? "

Because those two effects exactly cancel out, yes, it does matter that you have to pay back those odds.  At least if your goal is to have better odds.

So I DO have BETTER ODDS on that draw! And if I win and its game over, do I still have to "pay back"?

I personally don't believe in luck but maybe you should have asked "are some numbers more lucky than others."

Since luck and chance are the same thing  I am sure someone would still feel the need.   The way I see it is

that regardless of what one calls it you seem to have done very well.  I posted a list of 28 random numbers

and yours have done far better on average, if that's not reality I don't know what is.

So your saying I have BETTER LUCK than you, but you don't believe in luck?

It's like the old saying "some people have all the luck", "some people are luckier than others" or something like that. Saying "some numbers are luckier than others" meaning some numbers are drawn more than other numbers, is the same as all the lectures we had about standard deviation.
