Many of us have heard about a story of someone that played the exact same lottery numbers every week for years and years and then finally won the jackpot one day. To many of us, this would seem to mean that if you play the same numbers that it would increase your odds of winning. Is this true? Does playing the same lottery numbers every week increase your chances of winning the jackpot? This article explains the answer.
To get the answer, you must first understand how the lottery works. Numbers are drawn at random. Actually, it’s as close to random that you could get. And, since it is random, past results have absolutely no bearing on future results. That means that there is no such thing as a number or number combination being due to come up. Matka That cannot happen with a system that is random.
Because the lottery is random, someone that buys a quick pick for any particular draw would have the same probability of winning the jackpot as someone who plays their regular numbers. There is no difference in odds – They each have the exact same odds. That means that playing the same numbers every week will not increase your chances – You would have the exact same chance of winning as someone who buys a quick pick every week.
The problem with people that think that playing the same numbers increases their odds of winning the jackpot is that they see patterns where there are none. For example, they might see a news story of a woman that played the same numbers for 25 years before finally winning the big one and figure that if it happened to her, it should happen to them too. What they don’t realize is that if, say, a million people play the same numbers every week, the law of large numbers would say that some of them will eventually win. Some people will win that way, but it does not mean that their system works or that it even increases their chances.
Now, this does not mean that if you have a set of numbers that you play every week that you should stop playing them. I never meant to insinuate that it makes your odds of winning any worse. All I meant to say is that, if you play the same numbers, you have the same odds of winning as anybody else does. So keep playing your numbers.
Imagine if your favorite ball player went out and lost every time they played. They probably would not be playing very long and if they did people would stop watching. They, as a result, would loose that nice pay check they get. But, not every player is a natural, yes there are those exception to the rule. But for most ball players they practice over and over. Not only do they practice but they are coached. That’s right, that coach is not just there for his good looks. The coach is there because he has proven that he is a winner and his job is to pass on his experience. The same thing goes for the lotto, if you had a chance to learn from someone that is a proven winner would you take it. A coach that will show you how to pick lottery numbers that win. A coach that has won many times before and is willing to pass on that information.
Now is the time to make your choice. You can either keep doing your own thing and hope you will win. You can keep using your crazy method of choosing numbers or you can get coached by someone that has been there and done that. A coach that has perfected the art of playing the lotto and has become a master.
