Lottery TipsDon’t Count On Winning The Lottery On Your Birthday 🙁

Everyone who purchases a lottery ticket is playing a lottery system whether they are consciously aware of it or not. Even the individual who buys a Lotto 649 quick pick is playing a system that improves his or her chances of winning the lottery based upon how many tickets they choose to purchase for their system. The lottery player that selects just one 649 quick pick for each draw is playing a random selection system providing the player with odds of 1 in 13,983,816. The odds for this system are improved simply by purchasing more and more quick picks providing more and more chances to win with the randomly selected number sets. This system is very inefficient and obviously expensive for an individual to play if they wish to have numerous chances to win the jackpot. Consider this system to be labeled as “hazardous the the lottery player’s wealth.”

It is prudent to play less expensive, more effective systems for successful lottery wagering.

There are probably as many systems for lottery number selection and play as there are lottery players that give thought to predicting their “lucky numbers”. Some Lotto 649 players write all 49 digits, or just their pool of special numbers, onto poker chips or pieces of paper, place them in a hat and them reach in to select the various combinations of six numbers for filling in their betting slips. Others mark their lottery ticket selection boxes to form religious symbols or certain patterns on their ticket boards. Some select numbers from a deck of cards to predict the winning draw results in the upcoming lottery. Lotto Tutor has even heard of a person that rubs his young son’s head while quickly writing down the numbers that are subsequently uttered by the child.

Whatever your particular method is for the divination of lucky lottery numbers, I’ll bet that you have used the numbers of your birth date on at least several occasions.

Not to diminish from the fact that your natal day should be the best and most rewarding day of the year for you … in the area of lotto wagering, your birth date numbers have very little chance of providing you with a lottery birthday present.

Picking lotto numbers from birth dates starts you out on a disadvantaged path for playing the lottery. Because the month and day birthday numbers are limited to the digits 1 to 12 and 1 to 31, your selections within numerical tens groupings exclude the numbers 32 to 49 and bias your ability to cash in on potential winning hits in over one third of a 649 Lottery’s numbers. Even if you did win an upper tier lotto prize you would have a higher probability of a diminished return by sharing that prize pool with more winners than other number selection choices because so many other lotto players also use their birthday numbers as well.

Let’s select anyone’s birth date and check out their potential for wins. Why don’t we take for example, a former Prime Minister of Canada – Brian Mulroney’s birthday and see how many ticket’s Brian would have cashed in if he had counted on his birthday numbers to provide him with winning returns in Canada’s Lotto 649. On second thought let’s use someone else’s birthday. Brian’s numbers are bound to be losers and we don’t want to bias the results of this exercise.

Instead lets use the birth date of Elvis Presley and see how many times the numbers in his birth date have been drawn together in winning combinations since the beginning of Lotto 649 on June 12, 1982 until May 27, 1998.

The “King” was born on January 8, 1935. The basic number combinations available from his birth date are 1 for January, 8 for the day, 19 and 35 for the year. Elvis would be disappointed if he had counted on the numbers of his birthday to produce cash able ticket combinations in Canada’s Lotto 649.

In the entire 1497 draws of this Lotto 649 example, the numbers 1, 8, 19 and 35 have only been drawn 11 times in combinations of 3 (the minimum numbers required for a win) and have never appeared all together, forming an opportunity of a 4 number winning ticket, in any draw in the entire history of Lotto 649.

Well, it is a 6 out of 49 draw so let’s add a couple of more numbers and see how much Elvis would have won using his 6 birthday numbers.

19 + 35 = 18 … and … 1 + 8 + 19 + 35 = 63 … 6 + 3 = 9

So let’s add the numbers 18 and 9.

For the same Lotto 649 draws, the additional two birthday numbers did not help out the winning returns very much. These six numbers formed combinations to produce only 5 winning tickets of 4 number combination prizes and just 37 winning tickets of 3 number level pay outs over 1497 draws or a 16 year period of Lotto play.

Elvis Presley’s birthday does not contain particularly unlucky numbers nor does your birthday nor maybe even Brian Mulroney’s … but birthday number selections of any date do not provide a good chance of generating wining number combinations for lottery wagering.

As an alternative to using the numbers of your birthday you would be much better off choosing only numbers that have been drawn in the last ten draws. Even with this simple suggestion, your chances of having a winning return will be much better on every Lotto day … including your birthday.

Lotto Balls

Lotto Balls

Lottery TipsBalls Or No Balls ?

Within the lottery forecasting industry there has been a great deal of attention paid to lottery balls. A tremendous amount of effort and study has been focused on the relationship between the microscopically differing physical attributes of the individual lottery balls and the frequency of their appearance rates. Many lottery prediction professionals adhere to a school of thought that a greater accuracy of lotto number forecasting can occur if a devotee of the game has a developed knowledge of a draw history database indicating which ball sets were used in which particular lottery draw. This belief that a relationship exists between the variations of ball weight, density, mass, colour and shapes manifests itself in theories which suggest that a minimum lottery draw history of at least 60 draws, after a new set of balls have been introduced, must be studied for predictive relationships to be effective. The supposedly new pattern or lottery signature, based upon the miniscule physical variances between the lotto balls will emerge after this time. The belief in this factor of lottery prediction is so significant that many lottery analysis software and program development designers actually place functions within their software applications to track and analyze the ball sets and dates on which those particular balls appeared for those particular draws.
This is not a new approach. Roulette players … similar types of beings to lotto players … have, for centuries, developed betting systems based upon the physical imperfections or bias of a particular roulette wheel and the number selection outcomes that this variation might produce. Due to the many shared attributes between the lotto enthusiast and the roulette fan, it should be no surprise that LT is a passionate roulette player and has developed a roulette system achieving above moderate success in all of the world’s major casinos from Istanbul to Mar de Plata … Monaco to the lights of Vegas … but that is a topic for a different web site and the system used for the roulette successes was not based upon the physical attributes of the roulette wheel or ball.

LT recalls participating in an internet lottery chat where this theory of ball significance was being extolled and the chat participants were instructed to always contact their local lottery corporations to find out when the lottery balls are changed. Everyone was concerned about balls and a subsequent discussion occurred when one chat participant type/text asked “what about MI balls?” I am sure that his unintentional injection of humour into the chat, regarding a query about the Michigan State Lottery, was appreciated by all.

Too much emphasis has been placed upon balls.

LT does not adhere to the school of thought that there is a correlation between individual ball differences and the effects upon their appearances in the lottery draws. Even if one assumed, incorrectly, that there was a correlation, would you want to wait 60 draws … possibly a year or more to compile a results history to begin the predictive analysis? Furthermore the lottery corporations are always changing the ball sets and machines to provide themselves with comfort in the belief that the draws are as randomly based as possible in a physical world.

The study of predicting upcoming lotto numbers is a very complex endeavour requiring an analysis of a multitude of numerical variables. In contrast to the belief about balls that is subscribed to by many lottery experts … LT recommends that you forget about balls in your approach to an understanding of effective lottery forecasting.

The following article from the Standards Council of Canada addresses the lottery ball analysis variable very well.

Lotto Ball Testing No Child’s Play

 On average, Canadians purchase 17 million Lotto 649 tickets before each draw. Some lottery enthusiasts even tune in to watch the draw on television, focusing the full force of their psychic abilities on each bouncing lotto ball. If the right numbers don’t come up, disappointed players can be forgiven for cursing the odds, the stars or an unlucky disposition. Just don’t blame the balls.

Interprovincial Lottery Corporation, which oversees Lotto 649 and Super 7, enlists the assistance of sophisticated measuring services to make certain that its machines and balls are beyond reproach. The balls, which are made in France,undergo a variety of tests to determine that they have similar physical characteristics. The goal, say lottery officials, is to ensure that every jackpot number is a truly random occurrence.

Before the balls can make someone’s financial dreams come true, they are sent to Quantum Inspection and Testing Limited, a Burlington, Ontario-based laboratory accredited by the Standards Council of Canada to perform calibration and non-destructive evaluation.

At Quantum, the balls are checked with a micrometer to determine that they are in fact 50 mm in diameter, as they should be. Next they are measured for resiliency – in other words, how well they bounce. This can be done using a measuring device known as a resiliometer, which drops a weight on the ball and measures how far away it is propelled, or by videotaping the balls as they are dropped and measuring the height of their bounce.

The balls are then submerged in water, and their volume determined by how much liquid is displaced. The test subjects are even exposed to an x-ray examination to ensure that there are no impurities or cavities within their solid rubber spheres.

Another laboratory, Ortech Corporation, measures the mass of the balls, and if all is in order, they are ready for the machine.

The policy of Interprovincial Lottery Corporation is that balls vary by no more than five per cent for each test. However, Quantum’s Derek Pilcher suggests that luck, more than science, is behind which ball decides to fall through the trap door of the machines. A variety of experiments have been done using balls of different sizes and weights and it hasn’t seemed to significantly affect the randomness of the results.

“An apple will come through the aperture as often as any of the balls,” says Mr. Pilcher.

Still, for Lotto junkies, it may be comforting to know that Quantum meets a variety of accreditation criteria. Equipment must undergo calibration traceable to the national measurement standards of the National Research Council of Canada. In addition, the laboratory must demonstrate the existence of appropriate human resources and equipment as well as quality and measurement systems.

So the next time your lucky numbers turn out to be not-so-lucky – don’t blame the balls, blame the numbers.
