Not Exactly. I’m not about to give you the winning numbers for tomorrow’s draw. I’ll just lay out some of my observations on the winning numbers of the Philippine Lotto. What inspired me is this system which I beat and it so happened that I thought of a way of how to earn from it. There’s nothing perfect in beating the system. There is still that element of chance and up to now I am able to beat/cheat the system once in every three to four instances.
I then told myself, if this system can be beaten, why not other systems. So I then thought of the color game in the perya where you have 3 dice and 6 colors per dice. All three dice will roll out. If your color shows up in one out of the three dice, you’ll get back your bet, if two out of the three shows your color you’ll get double, if thrice, then thrice your bet. I then computed that there is a 42.13% chance that you can get back your bet every game on the average very close to 50%. Pretty good chance and you have a 6% chance that your color will show up in two dice. So the trick is just start small, bet in every game twice in your previous bet and by the time your color shows up on two dice, quit the game and go home. If my math is correct, you will always go home winning it.
Now let’s go back to lotto. Fortunately the PCSO has a record of all winning numbers on their website. I downloaded all winning numbers and by using excel i plotted the results and found out one peculiar thing PCSO doesn’t tell us. For one instance, that is for one draw, the statistics don’t really matter because any combination can come up. But will you allow yourself to bet 01-02-03-04-05-06 in the regular 6/42 lotto. I bet not because PCSO may say that all combinations (that is 42Combination6 at a time) have a 1/5245786 chance of winning, some combinations have lesser chances of coming up in the draw, based on statistics.
I used Excel in the figure above. It has a total of 343 winning combinations since 8/20/2005 to 12/30/2008 and only 197 total winners. This is only for the regular 6/42 game which is played every Tuesday and Saturday. The first column shows the numbers. The columns shows the order of draw. Column A shows the first ball drawn up to column F which is the last ball drawn. The last column shows the number of times the numbers showed up since 2005. The items highlighted in red are the ones which showed up the most per column.
The trend is very obvious. There is a larger chance that a single digit number will show up in the first ball and a large valued digit will show up in the last ball. and each ball from second to fifth have their own biases on which range of numbers to pick from.
Again, you can use this in your next set of numbers to bet but this stats only show things in the long run and each draw is independent of the one before and after it. But still, how come PCSO didn’t tell us that we have a larger chance of winning if we chose our numbers spreadout from from digits 1 to 42 for Lotto, 1 to 45 for Mega Lotto and 1 to 49 in Super Lotto.
May I ask you again, if you were only allowed to choose between A or B to bet in the next game, which one will you pick?
These are just observations.
