A Formula to Win the Lottery

by 58 replies
Seems a married couple has just recently won
the lottery twice, and claim to have a formula
for doing it again and again...
Has Couple Found Formula To Win Lottery?

Even if it's bunk, I can predict brisk sales of
their "winning formula" should they ever decide
to publish it.

Maybe an enterprising sort should contact them
for a JV. Probably do well as a WSO

    I can GIVE away a guaranteed formula.

    It's simple really. Buy every possible combination. Now admittedly, the larger the lottery, the more this formula costs. But it is guaranteed to win.

    For a lesser cost, you can buy every possible powerball number for $42 (Powerball ranges from 1-42), for $82 you can guarantee to win at least twice as much as you would with $42 by purchasing the powerplay option.

    You are guaranteed to win with only $42 in cash outlay.

    Guarantee applies to the winning of a cash prize of any size in the Powerball Jackpot. Minimum payout is $3 without powerplay, or $6 with powerplay option. If you implement this formula and do not win any prize whatsoever, please request a complete refund of the money you paid for this formula.

    Sorry, I couldn't find a finer print for my guarantee.

      I remember reading about an Australian syndicate who attempted to do that with the Powerball lottery here in the states. With the size of that particular jackpot, the strategy would have worked, and generated a tidy profit, except for one thing...

      There were multiple winners.

      As I recall the story, the pot got split 5 or 6 ways. The syndicate lost millions of dollars with a winning ticket .:rolleyes:

    I just read that story a few moments BEFORE finding this thread. Now, they may have a system, but that doesn't mean it will work every time.

    It's a neat story, but most people don't understand what random numbers really mean.

    Ask most people which of the following sets of numbers is the most random...

    A. 10, 68, 43, 86, 9, 24
    B. 4, 6, 2, 2, 3, 2, 2, 2
    C. 41, 17, 4, 9, 31, 16

    ...and they will likely pick A. or C., but I used a random number generator using the numbers 1-7, inclusive, to generate set B. While A is based on a few numbers realted directly to me, and C. were off the top of my head - BUT that does not make them random.

    Randomness can give the illusion of certain numbers being favored in one way or another, but they are not.

    I will not buy their system, as I do not play the lottery, but they sure have a heckuva sales message ready to go.

    By the way, I've been to Mt. Horeb a few times and think they are known for two other things - trolls and the Mustard Museum - now this!

      Agree with Michael. Whenever someone ask me to play lottery with the I say okay lets play: 1,2,3,4,5,6 and they say I am **upid.

      Why? These numbers got the same chance.

      I know this thread is very old...But since it's been bumped, may as well add to it...

      As Michael said, the numbers picked by the lottery are random. However, the numbers most players pick aren't as random. Most people will include their own birthdays and birthdays of loved ones...Since months have 31 or fewer days, the numbers 1-31 are picked much more often than numbers 32 and over.

      While each number has the same odds of winning, by picking numbers over 32 a player will be far less likely to share a jackpot with others, should they hit one.

      As others have pointed out above, once the jackpot reaches a certain point, it actually has a positive expectation. For example, if the odds of winning are 1 in 14 million, and each ticket costs $1, in theory you could buy each possible combo of numbers and be guaranteed a win.

      There's the possibility that others may win too, but this is somewhat offset by the fact that all of the other non-jackpot tickets won't be losers and will provide winnings.

      Of course, lotteries are a losing proposition, with most only paying back 50% of the total take. However, if you are the type to play once in a while just for a little fun, wait until the jackpot to odds ratio is higher than one to one, and then pick numbers over 32. While you're still very likely to be a loser, you can greatly improve your odds by using just a little strategy.

    Guys, Guys, Guys!! I'm 17 and do the lottery myself. It is common logic that you have more chance at winning the lottery if you where to use the exact same numbers per day/week/or even month than if you were to carry on using a different/random combination per day/week/or month and FURTHERMORE a greater chance if you were to use more than one combination every week.

      It might be "common" logic - but it sure aint real!

      There is simply no way to predict a random draw UNLESS you work for the manufacturers of the machine or balls, dice, counters etc being used and you can somehow fix it so that certain balls are heavier, larger, smaller or whatever.

      "Luck" is a random thing. Some people get "lucky" and win a lot, others buy tickets all their life and win nothing. That's life, luck and randomness.

      PS - that article doesn't say how many tickets they purchased!

      Not sure why you want to bump such an old thread....But you're a perfect example of being a guaranteed loser. You're only 17. It is illegal for you to play the lottery. As long as you lose, no one will notice. But once you win, you'll need to show an ID. Good luck ever collecting on a winner.

      I know...If you do ever win, you'll split it with someone old enough to play. So bascially, you have half the odds that an otherwise poor game gives you. Good one.

      BTW, you reasoning above is totally invalid and not logical.

      When I was your age I would have believed that too.

      I know you won't believe me, but the reality is that you're wrong.

      Remember this: numbers have absolutely no memory. There is no "should" here. Period.

    I would love to get my hands on their formula, sadly I think it won't work. How can one claim to have a formula when the numbers are totally random. You can have can calculate all the possible outcomes, but that will leave you with so much combinations!

    Though, if you are a multi-millionaire and the tickets are only $1 per ticket. You can purchase every ticket and win. But only do this, if you can make a profit, then again, another random factor is included and that is that other people will also purchase tickets and could possibly cut you out on this strategy. Let's face it! Formula on lottery? Bogus!

    it is certainly tempting to have a magic formula for the lottery

    I don't believe it however This is just one lucky couple!
  • Profile picture of the author danlew
    I was really curious about this "magic lottery formula" thingy, because all I know is that when you are joining the lottery, it's all about luck. For my own experience, I really had no luck winning the lottery, it's just betting and hoping that all of your numbers are called.

    Although there isn't really a magical formula to win the lottery. There seems to be one for creating a popular thread. This thread has over 10k views. Learn from this.

    There is no such stupid thing as 'Formula' for lottery, it's all about probability: the more number rows you buy the higher chance you stand to win but the chance is very tiny that you got to buy a million if not a billion of those rows to guarantee the jackpot. And here in Sweden it's not just about matching all the numbers, you got to also match the Joker number (at least 2 digits) to win the jackpot, the Joker costs 2x-3x the price of a number row so in this case, you'll almost never win the jackpot.

    I *used* to think this too, but to be honest, i think this is a fallacy.

    If you repeat the same numbers each week...or simply use new, random ones...the chances for each combination to win are ALWAYS the same.

    This is the same classic fallacy as assuming that, in Roulette, when black came a few times now there is a higher chance for red to be played.

    In reality, your numbers don't have a "memory"...so the fact that you played the same numbers last week does NOT increase the chances this week.

    Correct me if i am wrong!

    Edit: And yes, lotteries are just proof for the stupidity of people

    Every time when there is a big jackpot, MORE people are buying tickets - however, a big jackpot is merely the proof that there was no winners in the past...

    B*S* Even a standing click is right twice a day.

    If they had a "formula" to iwn why yaven't tehy won it 12 + times?

    What they mean they have aformula to reduce the odds from about 15m:1 to 8M:1

    Some guy from NZ had abook about this....it simply reduced your odds from practically never winning it to almost never winning it.

    No apparently it has been mathetically proven it does increase your odds, but like i say from 15Million to one to about 10Million to 1. So don't go thinking you buy a $5 book and start spending that $10m prize!
