Lotto Methodology

Take a moment to discover the new methodology and how it can help you increase your chances of winning the lottery in no time.

Winning the lottery opens the door to a completely whole new life. A life where you never worry about debt at all. You travel anywhere you want to go. And best of all, you can buy anything you fancy.

It’s a life-changing moment. All you must do is get that one good win and you’re all set.

But how to win the lottery? I have good news for you.

In this post, we are going to share a potent methodology that will help you get the best shot possible at winning the lottery using the power of mathematics (with proof from actual lottery results).

But before I talk about the good news, let’s discuss the bad news first. Once you understand the obstacle that prevents you from winning, it will be easy for you to come up with a sensible methodology that works.

The Bad News:

The lottery is truly a random game. If we talk about randomness, it’s unpredictable and you need perseverance, persistence, and patience to be able to win the top prize.

Story short, winning the lottery is not easy.

Math says the odds in favour of winning the Irish Lotto 6/47 grand prize are 1 to 10,737,573.

The odds in favour of winning Euromillions 5/50 & 2/12 Jackpot are 1 to 139,838,160.

The odds in favour of winning Uk Lotto 6/59 grand prize are 1 to 45,057,474.

Although, the best odds so far are that of the Daily Million draw, where the odds in favour of winning are 1 to 3,262,623.

Any statistician will tell you right off the bat, your chances of winning the lottery is so minuscule. The possibility that you get killed by a shark is much higher than winning the lottery. But of course, the probability that you meet the shark is literally zero when you don’t swim in the ocean.

Similarly, in the lottery, you must be in it to win it.

By playing the new methodology means that you are basically characterising by “reduction” method.

There are patterns in lotteries that will never appear in a draw, not even in million draws. Unfortunately, almost 99% of the lottery players do use these numbers and therefore they are only wasting money.

Fortunately, if there are bad combinations, there are also good combinations out there. In short, this Methodology separates those bad combinations from the good ones. Then from the list of good ones, we separate the best performing patterns. The best patterns are grouped together, and we presented to you, so you don’t need to compute them anymore.

However, don’t take the lottery too seriously. Play just for fun. And the lottery is fun and quite interesting as I will prove it to you later.

 

The truth is that no one can beat the odds:

So, playing occasionally just for fun and taking a shot at the tease of “What if I win” that comes with it is not a bad idea at all.

 

The Good News:

Mathematically, you can increase your chances of winning to an extent.

I have may have mentioned earlier, no one will have prior knowledge exactly what will occur in the next draw. Not even by a supernatural mortal.

So, until some magical help is available, mathematics remains the only tool for all lottery players to rely on.

We use the power of Mathematics.

The formula we use is based on “probability” and the “Law of Large Numbers”.

But we don’t rely on Math alone. We prove it using data from actual lottery draws. This is how Irish Lotto Results differs from other lottery strategies because we prove whatever we claim. We believe in our method because it is scientific.

How to Increase Your Chances of Winning:

With the best patterns that we provided to you, you are already playing the lottery with huge advantage.

However, you can further increase your chances by doing the following:

  • Play a lottery system with better odds.
  • Play Less Draws so You Can Save More Money and Buy More Tickets.
  • Make a Balanced Odd and Even Numbers in Your Combination.
  • Make a Balanced Mix of Low and High Numbers in Your Combination.
  • Take Advantage of Advanced Number.
  • How to Win the Lottery Through Advanced Number Patterns.
  • Eliminate the Impossible.

Play a lottery system with better odds:

If your objective is to win a huge jackpot like that of the Euromillions, then you will struggle more with your chances of winning.

You should go for a lottery that offers better odds even though it offers less jackpot. It is easier to win that way.

Although the jackpot prize of small lotteries may not be too exciting, it is still a big one to make a difference in your life. Isn’t it?

But how do you know which one gives you better odds?

The first factor is the number field. The lesser the number field, the better the odds. For example, a lottery with 39 balls to choose from is better than a lottery with 47 balls.

Below shows you the odds for some of the lotteries:

 

Lottery Draw Total Possible Combinations Odds of winning the Jackpot prize
Irish Lottery (6/47) 10,737,573 1 is to 10,737,573
EuroMillions (5/50 + 2 Lucky Stars) 139,838,160 1 is to 139,838,160
Uk Lottery (6/59) 45,057,474 1 is to 45,057,474
Daily Million (6/39) 3,262,623 1 is to 3,262,623

From the table above, it is Daily Million (6/39) with the lowest odds. This lottery is an excellent game to play.

On the other hand, it is the EuroMillions (5/50 + 2/12 Lucky Stars) with the toughest odds to beat. The bigger the lottery’s number field, the tougher it is likely to win.

Of course, as a rule, the harder it is to win the lottery, the bigger the jackpot is likely to be.

But again, you define what you want. How much is big enough depends on you.

Ultimately, you choose the lottery game that is not too hard to win yet offers a jackpot prize that is big enough to change your life.

However, don’t under-estimate the power of smaller lottery system with a smaller jackpot. It’s a big opportunity for you to win from a mathematical perspective.

After all, you want to know how to win the lottery right?

 

Play Less Draws so You Can Save More Money and Buy More Tickets:

 

Don’t fall into the trap of “fear of missing out.”

And that’s the main reason some people tried not to miss out on the opportunity by playing every draw as much as possible.

I know, the fear of missing out is a big deal because you worry that your numbers may come up if you don’t play. True, that may happen. But most likely not.

The likelihood that your numbers will come out is about 1 in 140 million (if you play the Euromillions).

So, fear of missing out, as far as the lottery is a concern is purely “irrational fear.”

The best thing you can do is to save your money until you can buy more tickets.

This works because of the probability of winning increases by buying more tickets and not by playing many draws.

Let me explain how it works from a mathematical point of view.

Again, for illustration, we will use the lotto 6/47 system. But regardless of the lottery format, the basic concept is the same.

If you buy 1 ticket, then your probability of winning is 1 in 10.7 million.

So, if you buy 2 tickets, then you double your probability of winning which is 1 in 5.3 million.

As you go on buying more tickets, the probability that you hit the jackpot prize is improving as well.

So how could this thing possibly work, the way to do this is using probability theory.

In other words, more tickets equal more probability of winning.

 

Make a Balanced Odd and Even Numbers in Your Combination:

 

Did you know that odd and even numbers in your combination matters?

When you fail to count the odd and even numbers in your combination, it hurts your chances of winning.

To understand the probability of a combination based on odd and even numbers, we need to take it from the context of number patterns.

In this case, we need to find the many ways odd and even numbers are combined to form a combination.

In a lotto 6/47 system, there are 7 ways you can combine numbers with odd and even numbers.

The next question now is which of these odd-even patterns is the best to play in the lottery.

And the way to find out the answer is using probability theory.

To find the probability, we need to find the number of favourable combinations we can produce out of each pattern. Again, we use the binomial coefficient formula to determine the number of favourable combinations for each pattern.

Pattern Number of Combinations
6 odd and 0 even 134,596
5 odd and 1 even 977,592
4 odd and 2 even 2,688,378
3 odd and 3 even 3,584,504
2 odd and 4 even 2,443,980
1 odd and 5 even 807,576
0 odd and 6 even 100,947

 

 

To get the probability of each pattern, we use the probability formula. Therefore, the probability of these odd-even patterns are as follows:

Pattern Probability Calculus
6 odd and 0 even 0.012535049 1.25%
5 odd and 1 even 0.091044038 9.1%
4 odd and 2 even 0.250371103 25.04%
3 odd and 3 even 0.333828138 33.38%
2 odd and 4 even 0.227610094 22.76%
1 odd and 5 even 0.075210292 7.52%
0 odd and 6 even 0.009401286 0.94%

 

Based on the probability we can calculate the number of expected occurrences of odd and even patterns. We then match the expected occurrences with the actual occurrences using historical information over (100) Draws as follows:

Pattern Expected Occurrence (100 Draws) Actual Occurrence (100 Draws) Group
6 odd and 0 even 1 4 worst
5 odd and 1 even 9 5 bad
4 odd and 2 even 25 25 best
3 odd and 3 even 33 38 best
2 odd and 4 even 23 23 best
1 odd and 5 even 8 5 bad
0 odd and 6 even 1 0 worst

 

“To give you the best possible chances of winning, make a balanced mixture of odd and even pattern. When you fail to count the odd and even numbers in your combination, it hurts your chances of winning. As I said, probability calculations differ from one lottery to another, so you better visit the guide for each of the lottery draws.”

 

Make a Balanced Mix of Low and High Numbers in Your Combination:

The same thing with odd and even numbers, you must make sure that you have balanced low and high numbers in your combinations.

Again, to be able to calculate the probability, we must take everything from the context of number patterns.

Let’s make use of a 6/47 Irish lotto game. A popular example of a 6/47 game in Ireland.

To start off, let’s divide the 47 numbers into two sets:

Low numbers = {1,2,3,4,5, 6…,24}

High numbers = {25,26,27,28, 29…,47}

We must know the number of ways by which we combine low and high numbers.

So here are the possible patterns, we also determined the number of favourable combinations for each pattern which is as follows:

Pattern Number of Combinations
6 low and 0 high 134596
5 low and 1 high 977,592
4 low and 2 high 2,688,378
3 low and 3 high 3,584,504
2 low and 4 high 2,443,980
1 low and 5 high 807,576
0 low and 6 high 100,947

Next, we need to calculate the probability.

Some lottery system requires no extra ball but some system such as the EuroMillions requires two (2) extra balls to win the jackpot.

In both cases, we will only use the primary balls which are the 47 balls from the first drum. Therefore, the total number of possible combinations in a 6/47 game is 10,737,573.

Here’s the table of probability of low-high number combinations for a 6/47 game.

Pattern Probability Calculus
6 low and 0 high 0.012535049 1.25%
5 low and 1 high 0.091044038 9.1%
4 low and 2 high 0.250371103 25.04%
3 low and 3 high 0.333828138 33.38%
2 low and 4 high 0.227610094 22.76%
1 low and 5 high 0.075210292 7.52%
0 low and 6 high 0.009401286 0.94%

Again, based on the probability we can calculate the number of expected occurrences of low and high patterns. We then match the expected occurrences with the actual occurrences using historical information over (100) Draws as follows:

Pattern Expected Occurrence (100 Draws) Actual Occurrence (100 Draws) Group
6 low and 0 high 1 1 worst
5 low and 1 high 9 9 bad
4 low and 2 high 25 24 best
3 low and 3 high 33 33 best
2 low and 4 high 23 20 best
1 low and 5 high 8 12 bad
0 low and 6 high 1 1 worst

 

Based on our mathematical estimation, we now know that three patterns in the Irish Lotto come out better than the rest of the patterns.

Again, it doesn’t make sense to choose your numbers based on the bad / worst patterns.

And that is why it’s important that you know how to pick good lottery numbers based on the combination that appears more frequently.

In this case, the best low-high number patterns in the Irish Lotto are the 3-low-and-3-high, 4-low-and-2-high and the 2-low-and-4-high number patterns.

But most of the lottery players are not aware of these number patterns.

It pays to know the probability of your combinations.

“When you play the lottery, aside from getting the right odd-even pattern, make sure that you also get the right low-high pattern in your combination. Do your homework, check the past winning numbers of any 6/47 lotto system in the last 100 draws. The 3-odd-and-3-even and the 3-low-and-3-high number combination will always occur frequently. It’s a mathematical certainty. You just need to see it for yourself to believe it.”

 

Take Advantage of Advanced Number:

 

Now, I have explained the odd-even combinations. Also, we already discussed how to combine low and high numbers.

But these basic types of combinations barely scratch the surface.

Let me explain…

Probability analysis can be problematic and quite confusing.

For example, a combination such as 1-2-3-4-5-6 consists of 3-odd-and-3-even numbers and therefore according to our odd/even analysis, such combination is considered one of the best ones.

But we know it’s not true because conversely from our low/high analysis, a combination that is made of purely low numbers possesses a very poor probability.

So evidently, odd/even and low/high analysis are not the best solution to determine the best and the worst combination in the lottery.

There should be a better way to know.

Thanks to mathematics. Using the combined power of combinatorics and probability theory, we can determine the best, the bad, and the worst types of combinations.

The number of advanced patterns depends on the format of the lottery.

 

How to Win the Lottery Through Advanced Number Patterns:

 

It’s important to understand that “choosing the right pattern will not win you any grand prize.”

But these number patterns are an excellent guide to help you pick numbers with the best shot possible.

 

It’s doesn’t help you pick the exact next winning numbers. But it does help you get closer to the winning combinations. Remember, we are only using mathematics to pick lotto numbers with the “best shot” possible.

 

Remember, no one can claim the best strategy to win the lottery, all we can do is get our best shot. And mathematics remains the best tool for the job. So, in our case, we use combinatorics and probability theory to guide us.

 

The idea of number pattern in the lottery is very simple.

There’s no point wasting your money on number patterns that occur once in a blue moon. That’s all about it.

Why waste your money on a number pattern that only appears once in 10,000 draws when there is a better pattern that occurs 7 times in 100 draws?

The truth, many people play lotto combinations which do not have that typical pattern that nearly all jackpot-winning tickets have.

I can almost guarantee; most of the players are wasting their money on many of these bad number combinations. You are probably one of them, but you don’t even know it.

Truth be told, you can’t fix something you don’t know exists.

It’s high time that you know and be aware of all the types of combinations that will lead you to lottery success.

 

Eliminate the Impossible:

One of the famous quotes of Sherlock Holmes says: “Eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.”

In the lottery, you can do the same exact strategy.

Many people will disagree on this because they believe that each combination in the lottery has an equal probability of occurrence as any other.

But let me set one thing straight here.

In the lottery, number and combination are two different terms. When you talk about a number, it’s the individual number in the number field. On the other hand, a combination is a selection of numbers. So, in a pick 6 game, your selection of 6 numbers represent a combination.

From a mathematical point of view, each number has an equal probability of getting drawn as any other. And no matter what the previous frequency has been, all numbers in the number field always possess equal probabilities.

But when numbers are combined, the probability changes depending on the number pattern that it follows.

Perhaps the most popular bad pattern is the existence of consecutive numbers. Just look at the infamous 1-2-3-4-5-6.

But aside from consecutive numbers, you must think of other types. I have studied the low-high pattern above and we can tell right off the bat, many patterns belong to a group with a very low probability of occurring. The big picture here is that people are not aware that bad patterns exist in the lottery.

Story short, there are millions of bad number combinations in the lottery.

If you have been playing the lottery for many years now, you are probably one of those who wasted money on these useless combinations.
