A Formula to Win the Lottery

Profile picture of the author Brian Cook by Brian Cook Posted: 08/22/2008
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!

    This is basic math/science/common sense- as long as the lottery numbers are randomly chosen, there is no way to accurately predict them.

    Studying all the past winning numbers means nothing. It's not like a deck of cards where if you know which cards were already dealt, you can more accurately guess the next ones coming.

    If these people sell their system that would convince me it's no good- if such a system existed why wouldn't you use it rather than sell it?

    I think that's the point. It makes a great selling angle - they DID use the 'system' is what they will say. "But we don't want to be selfish, so we want to share it with others". That's my guess.

    And, here's the kicker...

    Because the 'system' doesn't really work and they got lucky, they know it's not sustainable. So, how else can they make money with it if they can't keep using it to win?

    Answer: They sell it.

    Gotta learn from their coopywriting folks... compelling. PERIOD!

    The system I want to buy is the one where someone predicts the outcome BEFORE it happens!

    That would be impressive - but claiming to have a winning system only after you have won sounds more like a fluke.

    Yup, no way to actually predict the numbers but that doesn't mean they won't sell that "system" to thousands or even millions of people.

    I have to believe there's a product coming very soon....

    hilarious! seriously, if you read the statistics, many big winners end up broke within a few years because they don't know how to handle their money. That I find extremely sad.

    I thought they won 4 times? Twice, err...lightening could strike, but 4 times? That might make me invest in some systematic approaches. lol

    My dad finally won a small (quarter mil) lottery in Florida a few years ago. Never seen an old man so excite din his life. But he'd probably spent more than that over all his years of playing before. Still, he relished it - blew through it in under 1 year.

    The crazy things is that tons of people would buy the secret formula just for the chance that they could get rich overnight.

    As with most things of this nature - like ASD Cash Generator, or whatever it was called - they take advantage of the ignorant and naive.

    Unfortunately, those are also the people most unable to afford throwing money away.

    In many parts of NYC, you still see zillions of "guaranteed numbers systems" being sold at the local bodegas and corner newsstands. Most of them are poorly produced, offset-copy booklets, anywhere from $2 or $3, on up to $99.

    They sell very well.

    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.

    kind regards
