After reading hundreds of posts, I often wonder if lottery players really know how a lottery digit/number becomes a winning digit/number.
I watch the Texas lottery drawings 4 times per day.
Different machines and ball sets are used, but the question remains - how are  winning digits/numbers determined.
Best answer I can come up with is a digit/number becomes a winner by chance. In other words, the digit/numbers closest to
the machine's escape exit when the gate is opened during a drawing are crowned winners.
I've never seen anything that indicates the 37 balls in the Texas Cash 5 are capable of being added, subtracted, multiplied or
divided, yet there are many so called systems that manipulate the balls as if they are animated objects rather being round, numbered balls that are dumber than dirt.
Be nice if someone could explain how that happens, the mathematical part, that is.
I suppose the best answer is that the digits/numbers become winners according to random actions within a mixing vessel.
Gravity, speed, position, chance are the only factors I can come up with.
How about you?

    Hi bobby,

    Haven't seen you around in a while.

    I think you hit the nail on the head.

    Playing Daily 4 I like to use the 1-up system, sometimes the mirrored numbers. I'll take the first number drawn for the month and 1-up that number for the rest of the month. I get a hit once in a while. The jackpot games, just random numbers and hope.

    Good luck!

      If you play the game of lottery, you have to have a STRATEGY, whether it's a particular system, or Quick Picks, or your favorite numbers, or whatever ...  Everyone's Objective is the SAME - to WIN $$$ !!! 

      Understanding the "Math" really doesn't matter, as long as the "Math" works, and the objective $$$ is achieved.

                I think the math should also be expained, at least a little bit.  Or at least the odds of winning.

                shouldn't the odds be known?

                  Interesting question, part of me thinks it has to do with quantum theory (ala Schrodinger's cat) and the actual observation of the event (winning number vs. non-winning number).  That's the part of me that tends to over-think things.  The other part of me feels like 'whatever works dude!'  In other words, if every time you did X, you won on a Tuesday, and you couldn't really figure out a causal relationship betwen X and winning would it bother you too much to do X in order to win, or would you be pounding the heck out of X every Tuesday?  I think in the end, most of us would just go with what's going to put the money in our pockets, I know I would.  Smiley

                  Here's wishing everyone the good fortune they're looking for.  Remember, if you happen to win more than a couple bucks, try and donate a little to one of your favorite charities - keep that positive mojo working!

                    Check your play slips, the odds are usually posted somewhere on them. Wink

                      Bobby- Don't stress it- the winning number/ digit of a lottery is similar to a female. Don't try and understand them, they can be pretty complicated. Just love them Man, love them. Same with the lottery, don't try and understand it- just play it.The great thing about both is that you just might get luckySmile..

                        Right, the odds per number played are known.  But I was referring to somebody's system.

                        For example if your system has you playing 15 Pick3 numbers at a time for Exact, isn't it good to know that

                        your odds went from 1 in 1,000 down to 1 in 67?

                         

                        I was referring to the comment that the math doesn't matter as long as the objective is reached.  And I'm trying to say that a

                        little bit of math is ok (such as understanding odds), and it might even help to reach the objective.

                          If playing one pick3 has odds of 1:1000 of hitting then s system playing 15 pick3 have odds of 15:1000 of hitting, what's so hard to figure about that?

                            I found this at the Tx Lottery Web Site:

                            Ball Number     Number of Times Drawn
                            0     140
                            1     134
                            2     147
                            3     141
                            4     151
                            5     122
                            6     139
                            7     148
                            8     159
                            9     135
                            -----------------
                            Ball Number     Number of Times Drawn
                            0     144
                            1     132
                            2     137
                            3     133
                            4     145
                            5     137
                            6     143
                            7     142
                            8     142
                            9     161 

                            -------------------------------

                            Based only on that:

                            Would the answer be by "Statistical chance" or not?

                            It seems to me that "it" shows that.

                              I'm not sure what the question was. 

                              But yes, the balls were drawn randomly that way.  Yes, by chance.
