In some of my recent articles, I’ve discussed lottery strategies that utilize the bell-shaped curve performance of some lottery characteristics. Many such curves are used by lottery players to improve their chances of winning the lottery jackpot. As with all of my articles, I was hoping to inspire some response. Well, I got that. But, in the process, it appears that I have caused a uproar about lottery jackpots.
It makes my day when lottery players get fired up about my favorite topic. Their excitement makes my day. I don’t mind controversy, in fact, I like it lottery sambad. It is grist for my writing mill. But, in this case, it seems that I stirred up a hornets’ nest. So, for the sake of civility, a sanitized version of their complaints looks something like this:
There is no way to put this nicely. My lottery critics are wrong absolutely and across the board. All lotteries follow these bell-shaped distributions, both in theory and, I state most emphatically, in practice! And, a lottery number analysis performed on any lottery would prove my point. I hope that makes my position on the subject clear enough for everyone.
Now, you want me to back up what I have said. No problem. If you were here with me at my computer, I would make my case by playing one of my favorite games. I would start out by saying something like this “Go ahead and pick any lottery you want.” Then, I would proceed to use my lottery software program to prove, that when it comes to lottery jackpots, I am right on the money.
This is how it would go. First, you would pick any lottery you choose. Second, you would pick a performance characteristic that interests you. Next I would display the theoretical bell-shaped curve of that performance characteristic. This would be an example of one of the very graphs that some of you are objecting to. Finally, I would show you the same graph depicting what actually happened using the actual winning lottery jackpot numbers.
For example, let’s say you chose the Florida Lotto. Shortly, you would have been looking at the theoretical curve for the last 372 drawings (over 3 1/2 years). Next, I would have shown you the same curve of the winning lottery jackpot numbers. Surprise, surprise; a bell-shaped curve. What happened over the 372 drawings history is exactly what theory predicted. In this case, both graphs would fit like a hand and glove.
