Last updated on January 6, 2021 The Ohio Lottery distributes over $5.7 million in prizes every day. If you want to claim your possible share of this pot money, you have to be in it to win it. Do not simply play using your lucky numbers. Do you want to be one of its 350,000+ daily winners? Then prepare the best game plan. Learn about how to use the power of math to achieve success, even if you hate math. Let’s start. Don’t use statistics to analyze lotto game It is hard to say when people started using statistics as a strategy. Supporters of this method analyze the lotto results from a specific duration (such as the previous 100 draws). This method supposedly allows them to determine the hot, cold, and warm numbers. From their observations, they predict which numbers will soon win. It is possible that what they analyze from the past 100 draws is correct, but this strategy has loopholes. One loophole is that 100 draws are not sufficient sample data to analyze, given that there are thousands to millions of possible combinations in a particular lotto game. Their observation from 100 draws will definitely change with a substantial increase in the number of draws. When trying to answer a problem, the first thing to do is analyze its nature and the available data to pick the most appropriate method to deal with it. Suppose we have a box containing 20 balls you can’t see. The only information you know is that there are yellow, cyan, green, and gray marbles. You do not know how many balls there are for each color. We can say that any question you ask is statistical. Thus, we could only surmise the composition of the balls in the box through sampling. If we know how many balls there are for each color, such as 6 yellow, 6 cyan, 5 gray, and 3 green; thus, we could ask probabilistic questions. In the same manner, we know how many numbers there are in a particular lotto game. Thus, the lottery is probabilistic instead of statistical. For example, the 6/49 lotto has 49 balls, and the 5/45 lotto has 45 balls. Instead of a statistical question, we could ask a probabilistic question. What is the probability that tomorrow’s draw results are 1-2-3-4-5-6? Or what is the probability that the winning combination has 3-low-odd and 3-low-even numbers? Probability theory is the one that will help you become a better lottery player. But aside from probability theory, other mathematical concepts can improve probability analysis, such as combinatorics and the law of large numbers. With the lottery being random and having a finite number set (per specific game), we have adequate knowledge to calculate the probability of combinations and get the best possible shot to win the game. This truly random nature of the lottery guarantees the precision of any performed mathematical calculation, based on the law of large numbers. Probability, together with combinatorics, will provide you with an accurate prediction so you will not shoot your arrow without a precise aim. This is the same image you have seen in our previous article, A Visual Analysis of a Truly Random Lottery with a Deterministic Outcome. You could revisit and reread this post to understand more about computer simulations to analyze the lottery’s randomness. Now, to ease your worries about some mathematical names and concepts I just mentioned, let me first provide you with their brief description. You will learn more about them as we continue our discussion. Probability describes how likely an event (a combination in terms of the lottery) will occur.Combinatorics is the field of mathematics used as a primary basis of lottery mathematics.Law of large numbers or LLN states that with adequate trials, the actual results always converge on the expected theoretical outcomes. Read The Winning Lottery Formula Based on Combinatorics and Probability to access more information. Get a calculator to get you going in the right direction To increase your chances of winning a game in the Ohio lottery, the only logical way is to buy more lottery tickets (of different combinations). This refers to the covering principle that eliminates concerns on hot and cold numbers or lucky and unlucky numbers. Covering helps you trap the winning numbers. Choose as many numbers as you can and play every unique combination from your selection. To take advantage of this covering strategy, you will need to use a computer program more commonly known as a lottery wheel. There are many kinds of lottery wheels, and each has its own advantages and disadvantages. Below are some of them. Full Wheel enables you to select more numbers. Choosing System 7 allows you to select 7 numbers. In a pick-5 lotto game, for instance, picking 7 numbers will create 21 possible combinations. The disadvantage of full wheels is the high cost of playing. Picking more numbers results in more combinations. More combinations mean buying more tickets to maximize your covering. If you pick 10 numbers, the total combinations will be 252. If you have 12 numbers, there will be 792 combinations.The minimal-type wheel or abbreviated wheel offers an economical solution but provides what seems to be consolation prizes. Satisfy a particular condition, and you have a guaranteed win from a minimum number of tickets. For instance, your selection contains all the winning numbers; you win a small amount. However, the trade-off here is the decreased probability of winning the jackpot. It moves you away from achieving your primary goal, which is to hit the jackpot. If neither type of wheels work, what you need is a lottery wheel that uses probability and combinatorics. This wheel is the Lotterycodex calculator. Through this new lottery wheel, you can play at a minimal cost while playing with a better success to failure ratio of winning the grand prize (not just the consolation prize). I will give you examples of how the calculator analyzes the games in the Ohio lottery. But before that, you should first know the difference between numbers and combinations. Know the difference between numbers and combinations The first thing a player must know is the difference between a number and a combination to play the lottery. The image below shows this. Each ball in a lottery drum denotes each number in a particular lottery game. The combination is the set of numbers you will choose to play. For example, in a 6/49 game, there are 49 numbers to choose from (1-49) to create your combination of 6 numbers. This knowledge of numbers and combination is the basic foundation for learning about their probability and odds that affect your chances of winning the jackpot. Now that you know the difference let’s go deeper into the discussion of probability theory. Let’s begin with the notorious 1-2-3-4-5-6 combination. The 1-2-3-4-5-6 combination has the same winning probability as any other one Each number and combination has the same probability of being drawn in the game. According to the law of large numbers, every number will converge in the same probability value when there is a huge draw size. There will also be just one winning combination after the draw. Thus, there is only one way of winning the jackpot. To express this mathematically, we use the probability formula shown below. In a classic 6/49 game, the combination 1-2-3-4-5-6 has an equal probability of getting drawn as the rest of 13,983,815 combinations. The same principle applies to Lucky for Life 5/48 and the Rolling Cash 5/39 games. Knowing this, you might be ready to believe that there really is no other way to win except to pray harder for your lucky stars to shine brightly and grant your wish. However, while there is really nothing bad about praying, it is better to combine mathematical strategy with your unwavering faith. So a mathematical strategy involves understanding the type of combination in a lottery game. Combinations are not created equally. That said, let’s discuss now how your choice of combination could make or break your success. The ratio of success to failure A combination has composition. You can describe it according to the characteristics of the numbers it contains. Look at the examples in the image below. This composition of every combination is what you should take advantage of. From our discussion above, you know that every number and every combination has the same probability. But probability differs from odds. Knowing the difference lets you understand the game better and devise a good game plan. From earlier discussion, probability measures how likely something is to happen. In a lottery, the probability is equal to the number of times a certain combination will get drawn divided by the total number of combinations. Odds refer to the number an event will occur over the number an event will not occur. In the lottery, “odds” are the ratio of success to failure. The formula in the image below best represents this. Let us say you will play in the classic 6/49 game. You will most likely not feel confident to play the combination 1-2-3-4-5-6, although you know that this has the same probability as other combinations. This is your logic telling you to be wary. Yet, if you fully understand the lottery’s mathematical laws, you know that such straight and sequential combinations are improbable events that might happen. In a 6/49 game, you know that a combinatorial pattern could have all six numbers as odd or even. It can have 1-odd and 5-even numbers or 5-odd and 1-even. You can also pick 4-odd and 2-even numbers or 2-odd and 4-even numbers. A combination may also have 3-odd and 3-even numbers. Using probability theory, we can distinguish which group of combinations is the best and the worst. Let us analyze the image above. This applies to 6/49 games like the Classic Lotto of Ohio Lottery. Out of the 13,983,816 total combinations in a 6/49 game, the 6-odd combinations can give you 177,100 ways to win and 13,806,716 ways to fail. The probability of this combination (computing using the probability formula) is 0.012665 (rounded off). Thus, the expected occurrence of a 6-odd combination in every 100 draws of a 6/49 game is 1. This means that this type of combination will only occur once every 100 draws. The same process applies when you want to determine the probability and estimated occurrence in 100 draws of other patterns. Therefore, the combination with the highest estimated occurrence in 100 draws is one with 3-odd and 3-even numbers in its composition. Between a 6-odd and 3-odd-3-even combination, you are better off playing for the latter. Making a 4-odd-2-even pattern with 1,275,120 possible combinations has the expected occurrence of 25 in every 100 draws. Hence, this is the second to the best pattern you can use when choosing numbers to form a combination. For the 3-odd-3-even combinations, there are 4,655,200 ways to win and 9,328,616 ways you could lose. The 6-odd combination offers 177,100 ways of winning and 13,806,716 ways of losing. You clearly have fewer ways of losing with a balanced combination of 3-odd-3-even than all 6 odd numbers. This should make us realize that while we have no power in controlling the probability of winning, we can choose an action that will give us the best ratio of success to failure. Use this knowledge to choose combinations that will help you win and keep you from wasting money. To develop a mathematical strategy for playing the lottery, you must choose the best ratio of success to failure. Thus, math is the only means that can show you what your options are. This is far more reliable than the lucky numbers on your astrological predictions or the supposed hot and cold numbers from past draw results. The image above summarizes the best and the worst choices you can make when playing a 6/49 lottery game. RememberAvoiding combinations such as 1-2-3-4-5-6 and choosing 3-low-3-high (e.g., 2-13-24-37-35-46) WILL NOT increase your chances of winning because all…
