If you've been following a lotto system for any length of time, experiencing losing weeks is natural, and expected. The temptation is to throw away the system and start again with a new template, but before casting your research, it can be a good idea to consider a key question.
Is The Lotto System Based On Sound Probability Theory?
Lotto games involve a large element of luck but some outcomes are consistent and can be assumed. If your system has some element of statistical probability then it might only be a matter of refining the system and doing some further research.
As an example, I've been following the prime lotto system which includes the following parameters in each line of 6 balls.
- An equal spread of odd and even numbers
- Two primes
- One non-prime odd number
While these outcomes will not appear every week, over time the results will average out, because the theory is based on probability.
Currently, the prime system totals a possible 575,586 combinations so there is plenty of scope for refining the parameters.
The Latest Results Of The Prime Lotto System
Let's look at the last 6 weeks of NZ Lotto, a simple 40 ball game with 6 numbers in each line.
In 5 of the last 6 weeks the results met the parameters of the prime system. We'll take a look at the line that did not meet the system rules to see what we can learn.
Using Losing Lotto Numbers To Generate Additional System Parameters
We'll look at the losing line and see if there are any consistencies with the qualifying results. That way we might be able to generate some additional rules and reduce the size of combinations.
Here are a couple of ideas for each line:
- One occurrence of consecutive numbers
- Two even numbers in the same decile
It's interesting that nearly all the lines meet the new criteria so these new ideas are worth exploring further.
This article has explained the concept of analyzing non qualifying lotto results to find new system parameters. In particular we've looked at how losing lines can similarities rather than differences with qualifying lines.
