Consecutive Lottery Numbers Are Not More Likely To Win

A recent newspaper article in the UK claimed that consecutive lottery numbers are more likely to appear as a winning line than other numbers. And that it was a mathematically proven fact. So how would you respond to that claim?

For a start we would ask 'Is that really true?'. The article itself wasn't really that long, just a few paragraphs. Not surprisingly the author didn't really explain how or why. But we already know the answer. It wasn't really possible.

Although it can appear that way, the chances of matching consecutive numbers in the lotto are laughably small. Imagine matching the following numbers in the lottery. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12. You have one in 13,983,816,ouring about 2.2 to 1. So it only seems that it would be more likely to come up than not. But even if so it's still statistically unlikely.

Not Allowing Yourself The Chance To Win

We all know that not allowing yourself the chance to win is the main cause of failure in any type of gambling. The temptation is too great when playing bingo or roulette to tempt you to bet beyond your budget or to change the way you are playing.

Once you have been playing a betting system you will know what are your winning limits and what your acceptable losses are. You won't be able to do this without setting these limits.

It's impossible to win every time you play. But if the sole purpose of playing is winning then by all means be prepared to lose.

Lottery Systems Don't Work

Lottery systems are bogus. The sales copy is just an empty promise to sucker you into buying the product. ' somewhere in the future they will have the winning formula ' or ' the absolute best winning system ' or even a system that will guarantee your jackpot in the Mega million'.

emptaker fortune promises every thing you have heard about winning the lotto. It is only recently that some ex lottery winners have come out with a book 'The Lotto Black Book' raising serious questions about the odds of winning the lotto.

Are any of these systems even competent?

In the UK National Lottery almost £100 million has been paid out on the refrain of hitting the jackpot. That's a lot of money lost. £990,000 went to the £1m prize and £280,000 to the £250,000 prize. If you play the UK Lotto the odds of winning are one in 14,983,816, that's almost a million to one.

The USA Mega Millions has the most players but they only have one 1 in 175,711,536 chance of winning the jackpot.

So we can add that to the mix.

A Lottery System Can't Improve Your Odds Of Winning

If you are thinking about buying, any lottery system, no matter how successful, can't improve your odds of winning.

Yet many people continue to believe there is some sort of secret system that will make them rich.

If you are going to spend money on a system and win nothing from it, why not just sell your tickets?
