If lotteries are random, why should I waste my time to analyze the lottery?
Well, have you won the jackpot before? Have you won anything at all? Have you won something frequently or on a regular basis?
If you continue to play your lottery blindly by not analyzing, you can still win the jackpot. In a 6/45 game, your chances of winning the jackpot will be 1 in 8 million.
Lotteries may be random, but the outcomes or events, which are balls drawn in a draw, are not perfectly independent.
This is clearly evident in the lapse frequency, as illustrated below. It clearly shows that balls which are drawn in recent draws are more likely to be drawn again.
The above graph is a snapshot of the Lapse Frequency screen in magayo Lotto.
If the outcomes are independent, the lapse frequency will not be in the form of the right-half of a normal distribution or bell curve.
Because the outcomes or events are not perfectly independent, it is possible to find trends and patterns that would allow you to make confident guesses on which balls are likely to be drawn, and which balls are not likely to be drawn, in the next draw.
This in turn, effectively reduces the number of balls in your pool of play. If you reduce 5 balls in a 6/45 game, your chances of winning will be 1 in 3.8 million, which is a 53% improvement!
