    "How does checking how many top prizes are left give you an edge in the odds department?"

    Well for one thing, once you know all the top prizes are gone you know your odds of winning one is zero regardless of the number of tickets left for sale.

    Thanks, but I believe I said that in my response. You obviously only read the first line and discontinued. lol

          You don't have to post the same combinations you're playing, no one will ever know the difference. Wink

            I live in Canada and quite frustrated with the lottery and really want to win, so I can buy a house and do some good travelling and meet people and learn more about the world..

            Yesterday this was in Trusee's blog, it might be helpful to you.

              This is scary. I cannot believe this was published, although I recall that in recent months, they discovered that a computer had randomly generated articles and they got cleared by peer review. LOL

              First, his "theory" is nothing new (it's actually a fallacy), and his website appears to be from 2001 (if we are to believe the footer) Roll Eyes

              Second, he cites himself in 2 of the 5 references in his paper. That's a big red flag.

              Third, what are his credentials to be "mathematician"? I see Sao Pablo university listed, but not a degree or even a position in the math department.

              Finally, his idea is basically choosing combinations that come from a pool of numbers that consist of a subset of combinations. Similar to what I was discussing the other day in jimmy's thread. If you visit his website and type in a set of numbers, it will spit out the probability of occurring....but the key here is that it is the probability of a combination that is made using those numbers...not the combination itself which you inputted.

              In other words, it's complete bunk. If I use the combination 40-41-42-43-44-45 and the highest number available is 45 then of course the probability of occurrence using those numbers is low....there's only 1 combination! On the other hand, if I choose a mix of numbers, there are more combinations that can be made, which makes it seem like you have a better chance. But that's a fallacy! It does not improve your chances in any fashion. Only 1 combination is drawn and only 1 wins, which means I have 1 out of the total combinations available of a chance of winning. It doesn't matter which numbers I choose or how I mix them. The only way to increase chances of winning is to increase the number of different combinations played....aka buy more tickets.

              Looks like another case of "this looks interesting, let's run the article without fact checking" on the part of several media outlets.

              If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
              If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

              P&L % = Total Win($)/Total Wager($) - 1

                    You might as well consider "If frogs didn't hop" to come to the same conclusion. What?  Stooges Sulk Off

                      Perhaps there was a comma missing after I've cracked?

                      As in he basically lost his mind.

                      Better yet the thread maybe should just state, "I've CRACKED!"
