Usually when I buy my lottery tickets online I go for the Easy Picks. I reckon I do this because I’m too slack to pick random numbers and I have numbers of my own, like birthdays and the like, that I could use. I figure that random numbers, that you get from the ‘Easy Pick’ function have just as much chance of winning as any other numbers. Today I’m considering improving lottery winning odds.
The image below shows my losing numbers for the last US Mega Millions. You will notice that not one my ‘Easy Pick’ numbers were actually picket making that ticket a total bummer. That’s when I thought I could use those numbers for improving lottery winning odds!
Improving Lottery Winning Odds Theory
My theory is that because those same numbers didn’t come up in the last drawer it’s more like to come up in the next one. So when checking my lottery results online on the Lottobroker.com site I just hit the ‘Play Again’ link to pick those same numbers again for the next USA Mega Millions which has hit a new jackpot of some US$ 94 million.
Then it suddenly hit me! I was looking at it all wrong. People play the same numbers for years on end and never win the lottery so that meant my theory was compete bullshit. If anything I should just make sure that none of the numbers I picked matched any of the numbers drawn in the last lottery. That makes a lot more sense because the probability of those same numbers coming up again is pretty damn low.
Oh well, shit happens I suppose. Have you got your ticket for next USA Mega Millions draw. You sure as hell don’t want to miss out on a chance of becoming a multi millionaire.
