OK - so the National Lottery is a waste of a quid! But remember gambling can be all about making the wrong bet at the right time

Choose 6 numbers by clicking on the boxes and then click the 'Go' button.


There are no prizes for winning this lottery, though the mathematics are a valuable lesson. Bookmaking is built on mathematics, with a good understanding, the principles can be used to beat your bookmaker!

Probabilities
If you attempt to guess 1 number chosen from 49 lottery balls
then the probability that you are correct is 1/49.
If you have a second attempt, and the previous ball is not
replaced, then the probability is 1/48.

If you choose 6 numbers then the probability that one of them
is the same as the first ball drawn is 6/49.
Given that the first number is chosen correctly then the
probability for drawing the second number correctly is 5/48.
The probability of choosing all six numbers correctly is:


6/49 x 5/48 x 4/47 x 3/46 x 2/45 x 1/44 = 1/13,983,816

Which is 13,983,815 to 1

If you have one attempt per day then you could expect to win,
on average, once during the next 38,285 years!
