Does the Math Really Matter and What Are Your Chances - Odds of Winning the Lotto

Does the Math Really Matter and What Are Your Chances/Odds of Winning the Lotto?

When you hear about the mathematical proofs for selecting the winning numbers, you can’t help but green your hair out. “Can you believe I’m going to win the Lotto within the next decade?” you ask. Well, listen up; the Lotto isn’t just about luck and probabilities; it’s all about math. In fact, you can’t even demonstrations of these math models easily because all of them assume that the numbers in the Lotto are all random or have a structure that we can study and predict.

We’ll study this myth further in the part on random number selection. The Lotto is a game of probability; therefore, selecting the winning numbers must be done using math. How do we do this? Let’s start by examining the probability of selected numbers getting picked in any lotto game.

Suppose a box called 100 has 30 white balls and 10 red balls. Obviously, each ball has the same chance of being selected (all even money payoff) – there are 30 of them and 10 red balls, so there are equal odds. Those odds don’t change because of the adding machines in a casino, or the multiple boxes in a draw. We also saw that making changes to a box that already has numbers selected for it doesn’t change the odds.

This means that if we remove the red balls, the odds will still be 50% for each number. We want to remove the red balls, so let’s do the same with the white balls. What we would do is take each ball and determine the probability of it being selected. If they are all even, then we simply return them and our bet. If one is black, change and re-deal. But if all are black, then the strategy is to wait for another ball to be drawn.

After waiting for our re-deal, we have roughly a 30% chance of selecting a red ball. And if just one ball is red, the probability goes up since there are now 1 less red ball available. It’s simple – when you’re waiting for a red ball, the odds are better to wait for a ball that is most likely not going to be red. This doesn’t mean you should never play the bonus ball; it just means you need to be selective.

Now suppose we’ve logged onto our casino account and someone beside me is playing the bonus ball. I am more than delighted to play along and despite the bright spinning wheel and fast moving ball, I am not sure I am going to win. I like to think of it as giving roulette as a game of chance, but I have no way of knowing that and Plakoto doesn’t ask me to predict the ball’s landing place. I don’t think he believes me, but I continue to play anyway.

Plakoto doesn’t work. He doesn’t try and make predictions. He just plays the game the way you should play it. That is,adding money to your calculated stakes in the hopes of winning. But the spins go by so fast, and Plakoto doesn’t have time to analyze the patterns.

If you’re going to play Naga303, you should add money to your account. But you want to do it on your own terms. I recommend you try it once at the online casino. Don’t go to a slot that you know nothing about and trust me, you’ll lose.

Plakoto is easy to learn and you can win as much money as you like. But remember, it’s a game of chance – use your brains to win!
