## Or something like that

### By Robert Perkis / Lotto-Logix

```I don't know about you, but I can be pretty lazy
sometimes, so when it comes to picking lottery
numbers there are other ways besides hunkering
down with the computers or throwing your money
away on Quick Picks.

This system needed a lazy fair test so I spent
the day collecting dollar bills from around the
house and not using any when making purchases.

When you examine a dollar bill or the higher
denomination bills, each has a unique serial
number consisting of a letter at each end and
eight individual numbers.

For this system, what we do is turn the eight
numbers into as many double digit numbers as
possible and then single digit numbers working
from left to right.

I'm testing it against my Florida 6/53 game one
of the toughest straight up pick six games.

For example, here's my first bill.  G57514689D

We get 51-14-and-5-7-1-4 = 1-4-5-7-14-51

Testing these against the previous 657 draws of
the Florida 6/53 we find 6-3# wins. Ok I admit
that's not too exiting, let's break them all down.

G57514689D = 51-14-5-7-1-4 = 1-4-5-7-14-51 = 6-3#Pizes
F80526031H = 52-26-31-8-5-2 = 2-5-8-26-31-52 = 1-4# 9-3#
B42242644B = 42-22-24-26-44-4 = 4-22-24-26-42-44 = 11-3#
D39290340A = 39-29-34-40-3-9 = 3-9-29-34-39-40 = 7-3#
H21597734C = 21-15-2-1-5-9 = 1-2-5-9-15-21 = 1-4# 9-3#
H93018752A = 30-18-52-9-3-1 = 1-3-9-18-30-52 = 9-3#
G33266932A = 33-32-26-3-2-6 = 2-3-6-26-32-33 = 7-3#
K65088829G = 50-29-6-5-8-2 = 2-5-6-8-29-50 = 8-3#
B58417294E = 41-17-29-5-8-4 = 4-5-8-17-29-41 = 1-4# 17-3#
B00541503A = 41-15-5-4-1-3 = 1-3-4-5-15-41 = 1-4# 8-3#
F12012353E = 12-20-23-35-53-1 = 1-12-20-23-35-53 13-3#
K91787833E = 17-33-9-1-7-8 = 1-7-8-9-17-33 = 8-3#
K59031451G = 31-14-45-51-5-9 = 5-9-14-31-45-51 = 5-3#
B89661486A = 14-48-8-9-6-1 = 1-6-8-9-14-48 = 7-3#
F02390668I = 23-39-2-3-9-6 = 2-3-6-9-23-39 = 8-3#
D66546676D = 46-6-5-4-7 = null
D65546675D = 46-6-5-4-7 = null
D61827660D = 18-27-6-1-8-2 = 1-2-6-8-18-27 = 1-4# 9-3#
F76872032I = 20-32-7-6-8-2 = 2-6-7-8-20-32 = 8-3#
K22931707H = 22-29-31-17-2-9 = 2-9-17-22-29-31 = 2-4# 15-3#

Hmmm, just 3# and 4# prizes, what were the odds?
3# prize = 1 in 70.79 draws
4# prize = 1 in 1,414.82 draws
5# prize = 1 in 81,409.50 draws
6# prize = 1 in 22,957,480.00 draws

657 draws divided by 71.79 = 9.28 3# wins expected.

We are bumping right along at probability with the
3# wins and with only 657 of the 1,414 draws for a
single 4# win to be expected, those are doing well.

Hope you weren't expecting to see jackpot wins from
the above dollars, I'd be suspicious of a salted list
with even one jackpot and half expect a special offer
of \$29.95 for a secret list of hot dollar serial
numbers.  Someone will be selling this system on ebay
next week, could be, duh.

What we're going to do next is kick things up a notch.

Taking the first two numbers . . .
G57514689D and F80526031H we get 11 wheeling numbers
1-2-5-7-8-14-26-31-46-51-52 = 4-4# 51-3#

Taking the first three numbers G57514689D, F80526031H
and B42242644B we get 16 wheeling numbers
1-2-4-5-7-8-14-22-24-26-31-42-44-46-51-52 = 2-5# 32 4#
and 112 3#

Taking the first four numbers G57514689D, F80526031H,
B42242644B and D39290340A we get 22 wheeling numbers
1-2-3-4-5-7-8-9-14-22-24-26-29-31-34-39-40-42-44-46-51-52
= 2-6# 24-5# 87-4# and 175 3#

Taking the first five numbers G57514689D, F80526031H,
B42242644B, D39290340A and H21597734C we get 24 wheeling
numbers  1-2-3-4-5-7-8-9-14-15-21-22-24-26-29-31-34-39-40
42-44-46-51-52 = 3-6# 35-5# 125-4# and 191 3#

Not too shabby, we're hitting right where probability
suggests we should, without paying for the system or
software, where we'd be lucky to do as well.

It has been said, "The only thing you can do to improve
your odds is to buy more tickets."  That isn't entirely
correct. You can also improve your odds by playing in a
lower odds game and improve your odds per dollar played
by paying less for your tickets.

The odds of winning the Florida 6/53 are 1 in 22.9 million
the odds of winning the NSW 6/45 are 1 in 8.1 million and
it has two bonus balls, the odds of 5+B are 1 in 678,755.

The New South Wales 6/45 tickets are .55 each AU dollars,
less then that from most countries after taking in the
currency exchange rate.  Australians can play a little bit
cheaper locally, this is the only way the rest of us can play.

Check out one of the few totally safe places to play online
with an Australian government licensed agency. Where the prizes
are tax free and you don't have to join a syndicate pyramid scheme
or pay twice the usual price or more per ticket to play.
