How Do Lotto Number Patterns Improve Your Lotto Play?
I started 25 years ago analyzing lotto histories. Today, I am more convinced than ever that any lotto player can improve his chances of winning the lotto by studying lotto number patterns. Not only do lotto number patterns and trends exist, they exist in all lotteries. They are not hidden. Anyone can use them to their advantage. In fact, patterns and trends exist in all games of chance. Applying them is called playing the odds and professional gamblers do that well.
Previously, I’ve shown how serious lotto players create a reduced play list by removing weak or underperforming numbers from play. See my article ‘How Do Serious Lottery Players Play the Lottery?’ By doing this the player can significantly improve their chances of winning the lotto.
Just making such a statement causes some critics and lsm99 skeptics to become enraged and accuse me of just about everything short of raping the queen. Paraphrasing Shakespeare, “The skeptic doth protest too much, methinks.”
The basic thread of their discontent goes something like this: Just because a lotto number had a dry spell doesn’t mean that dry spell will continue. After all, it’s a random game.
The Bard said it best. It appears that the critic is ‘hoist with his own petar’. Today’s lottery equivalents of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern have misapplied a long-term analysis to a short-term game.
Lottery Number Persistence
This is rare, but I agree with the skeptics and critics. They are absolutely right. In the long-term, such lotto number patterns and trends will not continue. But, here is the part they either missed or don’t understand. For the lotto, the long haul is tens of thousands of years and the short-term is our lifetime.
As a practical man, I’m not very concerned about what happens in the year 2500. I am interested in what is going to happen in my lifetime. And, in the short-term, lotto number patterns persist for months and even years before the inevitable pendulum swings back the other way. This is what I call Persistence and it is easy to see it at work in every lottery.
Upon finding something that will give me an advantage, I don’t necessarily need a mathematical formula that predicts what will happen with exactitude. Understanding exactly how something works isn’t necessary in order to take advantage of it. The vast majority of people do not understand the mathematics that describes the operation and performance of the tires on their car. And, yet this doesn’t discourage them from driving their cars.
Lottery Number Patterns
Persistence looks like this. In a previous article, I stated that lotto number 45 in the Lotto Texas, 6/54 lottery was a good candidate to remove from your play list. This wasn’t a snap decision made on the spur of the moment. It was based upon the numbers past performance; a pattern; a trend. Over many thousands of years, all lotto numbers in Lotto Texas will hit on the average of every 9 drawings. So, in the short-term, how has lotto number 45 performed?
Here’s where a good lotto software package comes in handy. From 4/26/06 to 7/08/09, a total of 335 drawings, what happened to lotto number 45.
To begin with, it didn’t hit for 37 drawings in a row. Later, it didn’t hit for 18 drawings in a row; then 19 drawings. See the trend? See the lotto number pattern? Now, skeptics would say you should ignore what is right before your eyes because, after all, it’s a random draw. They would not take advantage of this lotto number pattern because they don’t believe it is a pattern.
But, if we were professional gamblers and played the odds, this is how well we would have done.
Later, lotto number 45 didn’t hit for 29 drawings in a row. To the critic, this was just a fluke. Then it didn’t hit for 43 drawings in a row. The critic is sticking to his guns. Then it didn’t hit for 36 drawings in a row. Now, the critic is concerned that he forgot to put bullets in his gun. Then it didn’t hit for 24 drawings in a row and then another 20 drawings after that. The critic is looking for cover. Then, most recently, it didn’t hit for 39 drawings in a row!!! Someone, call the police. We have a missing critic. This lotto number pattern (the one that critics and skeptics insist does not exist) has persisted for 335 drawings. That’s 3 years and 3 months! The phrase, ‘Persistence pays off’ comes to mind.
Regardless of how much backup and support I provide, there will be those who say that I chose a lottery that fit my article. No, I didn’t have to cherry pick a lottery. No, I didn’t have to stage this article. This isn’t T-Ball my friend. I didn’t set this up so I could easily hit it out of the park. Lottery number patterns like this exist in every lottery, everywhere! I could have used any lottery to make my point. The proof is in any lottery you choose. Buy yourself some good lotto software, choose any lottery and check it out.
