Florida Lottery – Winning Strategy According To Math
Last updated on January 16, 2021
Have you already seen the Player’s Guide website from Florida Lottery?
It’s a good website to see, I tell you.
Intending to promote responsible gaming, it has lots of information for ensuring accountability when playing.
But you know what really caught my attention among the tips and guidelines it contains?
It’s the exclusive section to “know the odds before you play them.”
Many players focus on the past winning numbers to pick their combinations.
Thus, they ignore this crucial aspect of playing based on the odds. They waste the opportunity to use a is a far more effective strategy because of its mathematical basis.
In this post, let me show you more insightful details on how to win the lottery mathematically. It is possible, even if you lack interest in math.
Sit back and enjoy reading.
Win in the Florida lotto using appropriate methods
The official website of the Florida Lottery itself is also an awesome website to visit. It likewise contains a lot of information that is crucial for our discussion here.
Do you want to know what games you can play and how to play them? Your destination is the Play menu.
Have you got non-winning tickets? Don’t throw them away just yet because Florida Lotto offers Second Chance promotions.
Do you keenly use statistics to determine which numbers to select in the playslip? Check out ‘Reports’ in the About Us menu. Look for the Numbers Frequency chart, and you will probably have a different perception of the use of statistics.
In lottery games, however, this method is not applicable. Let me show you the reason below.
The image above shows Fantasy 5 balls’ number frequency for 7107 draws since July 16, 2001. They reflect the data from this report. It looks like each of the balls in Fantasy 5 appeared to have an equal slice of the pie.
This cancels the notion that there are hot and cold numbers in lotto games. With substantial draws, every number will be drawn in about the same number of times. Therefore, the statistical method for lotto number selection will be ineffective. Statistical analysis will never work in any lottery game.
What will work in the Florida Lottery lotto games, then?
The answer is probability theory.
There is no need for statistical sampling in lottery games since you know how many balls there are and how many balls you must select for a particular game.
This allows you to determine your probability of winning. For example, the Fantasy 5 game has 36 balls, and you need to choose 5 to create a playable combination. Each unique 5-number combination has one probability of winning.
This is the same for other games like Florida Lotto and Cash4Life. There is one probability of winning for a 6-number combination in Florida Lotto. There is also one probability of winning the 5-number combination in Cash4Life.
This probability fact might discourage you from playing, but do not forget that lottery is completely random. Its structure is finite.
This image above shows the randomness of the lottery, which applies to Florida Lottery games. Although the lottery is random, it is deterministic. All events have a cause and are predictable via a mathematical strategy. Thus, the image denotes that players can use new ideas so they will not be mathematically wrong.
It is the truly random nature of the lottery that players must be thankful for. This randomness enables probability calculations leading to accurate and precise conclusions according to the law of large numbers.
Be sure to see and read this visual analysis of the lottery for more information on this law.
These are the lottery attributes every knowledgeable player may take advantage of to win the Lottery. Keep reading below to discover the knowledge and methods that will help you gain the advantage.
What could happen when you ignore the ratio?
You know now that probability will work as a method of playing the lottery, rather than statistics.
Probability expresses mathematically how likely an event will happen. There is only one chance that a combination will match the winning numbers in the game draw. Thus, there is one probability of winning for each combination in the lottery game.
In Fantasy 5, there are 376,992 combinations resulting from creating a 5-number combination out of 1-36 balls. Thus, the probability of winning here is one in 376,992.
For Florida Lotto, there are 22,957,480 6-number combinations. The probability of winning here is one in 22,957,480.
However, the measurement of probability doesn’t provide a complete picture. To play the lotto games with a strategy, you need to learn and appreciate the odds.
Odds, as shown by the formula, allow you to view and compare the number of ways you could win with the number of ways you could lose. You do not just accept the fact you can only have one chance to win.
Instead, odds make you careful in marking numbers on the playslip. Odds make you more conscious about your combination’s number of ways to win over the number of ways to lose. Thus, you can call odds more appropriately as the ratio of success to failure.
In math classes, is it not that teachers discuss these two concepts in one session (or at least one after the other)? Take your math lessons back in the days as a hint for applying probability and odds together in real-life situations.
You must consider both concepts when playing the lottery so as not to weaken your success. For some players, it does not make any difference what combination to play since there will always be one chance of winning.
Yet, there is a meaningful difference when you precisely select the numbers that make up your playable combination. What could happen if you ignore this ratio?
Without consideration for the ratio, you choose any number with no strategy. You may end up marking 4, 6, 18, 20, and 36 on the play slip. Unfortunately, this is the worst choice of pattern in Fantasy 5. It has 116,280 more ways to lose than the best choice of 3-odd-2-even.
This image above applies to Florida Lotto games. When you do not know how important the ratio of success to failure is, you would likely choose any number with no plan.
You might play for 8-16-20-30-32-34 in this Florida Lottery game and unknowingly waste money. After all, this pattern has only one opportunity to match the winning combination in 100 draws. Meanwhile, the best pattern choice of 3-odd-3-even has 33 opportunities for the same number of draws.
In lotteries, apply probability and odds together. Considering only probability, you pay no attention to which numbers to play. Considering the ratio of success to failure, you become mindful of whether you have enough odd and even numbers in your combination. This allows spending money on tickets with strategically selected numbers.
Without consideration for this ratio, you will ultimately lose more money. With a strategy that involves this ratio, you have more chances of being right and fewer chances of being wrong.
The table showing the ratio of success to failure for a 5/60 game may also apply to Cash4Life. You slightly overheard a couple of players waiting in line to buy tickets about odd and even numbers selection. So you tried it also with 3-8-17-21-22.
While you have no complete understanding of the balance of odd and even numbers, you have a better strategy if you pick correctly. If you ever mark the 3 odd and 2 even numbers on your playslip, this gives you 32 opportunities for matching the drawn combination for every 100 draws.
Don’t you think this is better than randomly picking numbers with no regard if they are odd or even? I do not suggest that you adopt a game strategy based on loud conversations or rumors.
Knowledge is power. When you hear about the ratio of success to failure, learn more about it. Please find out how it works and how to do it. After all, there could be more to just selecting odd and even numbers.
RememberThe goal when playing the lottery is to win. To accomplish this, learn what the ratio of success to the failure of combinations is. This ratio will help you make the right decision. This ratio allows you to exercise your power to choose despite the uncontrollable probability and odds of lotteries.
Would you waste the opportunity to be closer to winning the jackpot? I know you don’t want to, so discover more below.
Combinatorial groups could be the root of your success
So far, you have known that you ought to be careful when picking numbers to complete your playable combination. Yet, how do you exactly accomplish this careful selection?
There are at least 4 keywords that a lotto player must understand before playing in a lotto game. These are pick size, number field, number, and combination.
Pick size refers to how many numbers you must pick to play. Number field refers to the number of balls in the game.
A number is one ball in a lotto game. The combination is the group of numbers you have selected.
In Fantasy 5, the pick size is 5; the number field is 36. The numbers here are 1 to 36, and the combination comprises the 5 numbers you should select.
In a Florida Lottery game, every number or ball has an equal chance of getting picked. After all, every ball has the same shape, size, texture, and weight. No biases are favoring one ball over the other.
It is when you put the numbers together that creates inequality among combinations. This is because of the unique composition of every combination. The unique composition comes from the odd, even, low or high numbers that a combination contains.
This is when you will see that not all combinations are created equal. It is this inequality that will allow you to exercise your power to choose the best ratio.
You should also realize that the balls included in a lottery game’s number field do not just fall within the odd or even category. These numbers may also be low or high.
When we talk about combinatorial groups, we also need to tackle these low and high number sets.
In Fantasy 5, there are:
Low = 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18
High = 19,20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,29,30,31,32,33,34,35,36
It would be best if you create a combination with a balance of odd and even numbers. Yet, also consider if these numbers are low or high.
Consider the classic example of 1-2-3-4-5. In terms of the odd-even analysis, this combination is considered one of the best choices. Looking at the low/high number sets above will reveal that all these numbers are all from the low set. From our Low-High ratio of success to failure table above for a 5/36 game, this 1-2-3-4-5 actually has a pattern with the worst ratio. Do not forget to consider if the numbers you select are low or high.
RememberThe single probability of winning remains the same, no matter which combinatorial pattern you use. However, combinatorial patterns do not share the same ratio of success to failure. A 3-low-2-high has more ways of winning and fewer ways of losing than a 5-low-0-high. Therefore, a smart decision is to choose a pattern with the best ratio of success to failure.
A lotto player’s task is to pick the numbers that will form his combination. A smart player will accomplish this task by applying a precise strategy.
Combinatorial groups and their unequal ratios of success to failure are effective strategies a smart player could use. These will allow him to choose a combinatorial pattern that offers more ways of winning but fewer ways of failing.
How should a smart Florida Lottery player proceed on using combinatorial patterns when playing a specific game? Let us see more about the inequality among combinatorial groups and determine which is best to use.
