What Is the Secret Behind the Odd-Even Lottery Number Strategy?

Do you want to know the secret behind playing the odd and even number lottery strategy? There was a time when I was in the same boat with you. Then, I discovered the secret and shared it with you in one of my previous articles. Now, I discovered yet another secret hidden within the first and will share it with your here. To set the stage for the first time readers, let’s recap a bit.

When I first made this discovery, the common belief among lottery players was that all wagers are equally likely and, I still believe that to this day. But, that doesn’t mean you should spend your money on just any wager. The secret is that wagers containing all odd or all even wagers are rarely the lottery jackpot winners. Therefore, knowing this, you can improve your chances of winning the lottery by carefully crafting the wagers you make. Thankfully, today computers with a good lottery software program can accomplish this for you automatically.

But, that’s not the whole story. There is another hidden secret in all this that you need to know about. And, it comes about because all lotteries are not the same. Applying your odd-even lottery number strategy equally to all lotteries is a mistake. A smart player takes into account the size of the lottery. And, herein lies the hidden secret.

In larger lotteries, like the New Jersey 6/49 for example, the winning numbers will be all odd or all even only once every 100 drawings or once a year. I don’t know about you but, for me, a year is a long time to wait for a single chance to win. So, the smart player avoids playing all odd or all even number wagers. Instead, he spends his money on wagers that at least have a chance to win in 99 out of 100 drawings.

Now, here’s the hidden secret that most players have missed. With smaller lotteries, lottery players need to be flexible and adjust their thinking. For example, let’s look at the Colorado 5/32 lottery where the size is only 32 numbers. In this lottery, wagers containing all even or all odd numbers occur on the average of once every 25 drawings. That’s four times more often than in the New Jersey 6/49 lottery. As you can see, your decision here isn’t quite as clear-cut.

What is the case in your lottery? How do you find this out? Easy. Just pretend to play all odd numbers (or all even numbers) over your lottery’s history and look at the graph of the results. For example, if all odd numbers occurred 6 times over a 500 drawing period then, this event occurred on the average of once every 83 drawings. That’s 500 drawings divided by 6 events for an average of once every 83 drawings.

Attention: Since all lotteries are different, you need to be careful. Rules of thumb don’t necessarily apply to all lotteries equally. Use your computer and your lottery software program to find out the facts and adjust your lottery strategy accordingly.

Calculate Your Odds of Winning the Lottery Mega Millions Powerball

Do you know how to calculate the odds of winning the lottery, including the Florida Lottery? You can calculate each set of odds for each different lottery game you play. With the assistance of a small hand held calculator or with the free calculator on your computer, you just multiply the numbers together and add one division process when “the order” of your chosen numbers is not required for a particular lottery game.

What you “need to know” is the number of total balls that the winning numbers are drawn from…..is it 59, 56, 42, 49, or 39? If there is a secondary drawing for the single extra ball, such as the “red ball” with Powerball or the Mega Millions’ “gold ball” you need to know how many balls are in this group as well. Are there 49 or 39?

It doesn’t matter if it is the Florida, Ohio, Texas, PA or NJ Lottery. This strategy or formula gives you the true odds. Florida Lottery is 6/53. New York Lottery is 6/59. The Ohio Lottery, Massachusetts Lottery, Wisconsin Lottery, and the State of Washington Lottery carry a 6/49 lottery numbers ratio. Illinois Lottery carries a 6/52.

Once you have this information correctly in front of you and your calculator in hand, you can start working the formulas. You need to choose five regular balls and one extra ball correctly matched to the winning drawn numbers to win the multi-million dollar jackpot that most of us dream about winning someday.

In the first example there are 56 balls in the first group and 46 balls in the secondary group. In order to win the Jackpot you need to match all these balls (5 + 1) exactly, but not necessarily in order. The California Lottery’s Super Lotto Plus is 47/27. The big drum is spinning with the initial part of the drawing. You have a 1/56 chance to match your number to this first ball.

With one ball removed after the first number has been drawn, you now have a 1/55 chance of matching another one of your numbers to the second ball drawn. With each drawn number a ball is removed lowering the number of remaining balls by a total of one.

The odds of you correctly matching the number on the third ball to be drawn is now 1/54 from the total number of balls remaining in the drum. With the third ball removed from the drum and sitting with the other two winning numbers, your odds of correctly matching the fourth ball is reduced to 1/53.

As you can see each time a ball is released from the drum the odds are reduced by one. You started with a 1/56 chance, then with each new winning number it is reduced to 1/55, 1/54, 1/53, and with the fifth ball you have the odds of 1/52 correctly matching this fifth winning number. This is the first part of the formula of how to calculate your odds of winning the lottery, including the Florida Lottery.

Now take these five odds representing the five winning numbers (1/56, 1/55, 1/54, 1/53, and 1/52). The “1” on top of the fraction represents your one and only chance to correctly match the drawn number.

Now you take your calculator and multiply all top numbers (1x1x1x1x1) equal one (1). Next you multiply all the bottom numbers (56x55x54x53x52). Correctly entered and multiplied you discover the total is 458,377,920. The new fraction becomes 1/458,377,920. This is a 458 million to one chance to win. If you were required to pick the numbers in order just like they are drawn, then these would be the odds against you to win this Pick 5/56 ball lottery game.

Fortunately or unfortunately, you are not required to pick the numbers in the exact order they are drawn. The second step of the formula will reduce the odds, which allows you to match these five winning numbers in any order. In this step you will multiply the number of balls drawn — five (1x2x3x4x5). With calculator in hand you see that the total equals 120.

To give you the right to choose your five matching numbers in any order, you create these odds by dividing 120/417,451,320. You definitely need a calculator for this one. 120/458,377,920 reduces your odds of winning this lottery to 1/3,819,816. These are over 3.5 million to one odds against you of winning this Pick 5/56 ball lottery game.

If this were the Mega Millions Lottery, you need to add the “gold ball” to these five winning drawn balls in order to win the Multi-Million Dollar Jackpot. The single gold ball is calculated as a 1/46 chance of matching it correctly, and since you are drawing just one number it has to be an exact match. Again, you only have that “1” chance to do it right. Now you need to multiply 3,819,816 by 46.

Grab your calculator and do the multiplication. Your final odds against you winning the Mega Millions Jackpot are calculated to be 175,711,536 or clearly stated 175 million, 711 thousand, 5 hundred 36 thirty-six to one (175,711,536 to 1). Now you know how to calculate the odds of winning the Mega Millions Lottery.

The Powerball Lottery calculations are based on a 1/59 for the first five white balls and 1/39 for the “red” power ball. The first set of multipliers is 59x58x57x56x55. This group totals 600,766,320. Now divide 600,766,360 by 120 (1x2x3x4x5). Your new total is 5,006,386. There is a 1/39 chance to catch the “red” ball. 39 x 5,006,386 gives you the real odds of winning the Powerball Jackpot, namely 195,249,054 to 1.

Another 5 +1 Lottery that seems to be everywhere in the United States is the “Hot Lotto” which has a 39/19 count. It is played in 15 different States. DC Lottery, Delaware Lottery, Idaho Lottery, Iowa Lottery, Kansas Lottery, Maine Lottery, Minnesota Lottery, Montana Lottery, New Hampshire Lottery, New Mexico Lottery, North Dakota Lottery, Oklahoma Lottery, South Dakota Lottery, Vermont Lottery, and the West Virginia Lottery. The final odds of winning the minimum $1 Million Jackpot is 10,939,383 to 1.

A Pick 6/52 ball Lottery game formula looks like this: (1/52, 1/51, 1/50, 1/49, 1/48, 1/47) for a total of 14,658,134,400 divided by 720 (1x2x3x4x5x6) for the odds of 1/20,358,520. Your chance to win the 6/52 Lottery is over 14.5 million to one to win, such as the Illinois Lotto.

The Hoosier Lottery that uses Indiana State’s nickname, carries a 6/48. Michigan Lottery is 6/47, Arizona Lottery and Missouri Lottery are 6/44, Maryland Lottery is 6/43, and Colorado Lottery is 6/42. Compare this to the Florida Lottery.

A Pick 5/39 ball Lottery game formula looks like this: (1/39, 1/38, 1/37, 1/36, 1/35) for a total of 69,090,840 divided by 120 (1x2x3x4x5) for the odds of 1/575,757 of winning the Jackpot such as the Illinois Little Lotto. Other States with the same 5/39 lottery numbers include the NC Lottery, Georgia and Florida Lottery Fantasy 5, and Tennessee Lottery’s Pick 5. Virginia Lottery’s Cash 5 carries a 5/34 range.

Now, isn’t it better to choose a Lottery game with lower odds against you?

Understanding Insurance: What Do You Get for Your Premium?

Buying an insurance policy doesn’t give you immediate gratification in the way that buying a TV, a washing machine or any other item you use on a daily basis does. In fact, we often hear clients say:

“I’ve never been in a car accident.” Or “I never get sick.” Or “My employees have never been hurt on the job… So what am I getting for my premium?”

That’s a great question. And the answer requires a shift in thinking, as well as a little history about insurance coverage and its original purpose.

What Am I Buying?

In a nutshell, insurance is an important but intangible product. It buys you protection and peace of mind.

A good insurance policy allows you to protect:

  • Valuable assets in which you’ve invested a great deal of money, such as your home, car, boat, motorcycle or jewelry
  • People you care about and would want to help should they be physically harmed: your children, spouse and employees

Insurance also gives you peace of mind, knowing that:

  • You’re not gambling with your financial security
  • If something bad happens, it won’t financially destroy your business or put your family into bankruptcy

While you may not be able to hold these things in your hand, they are of value.

How Does Insurance Work?

The concept of “risk” is the single most important thing to understand. Insurance involves the pooling of similar types of risk and the transfer of that risk to a central entity, such as an insurance company that agrees to cover the costs of future “losses.” Depending on the type of insurance, a loss could be an illness, a car accident, a workplace injury, a hailstorm, crop damage, a fire or other life events that could prove financially devastating to an individual, family or business.

Customers pay a predictable premium in exchange for protection against such catastrophic events. In fact the term “catastrophic” is another important insurance concept. Originally, insurance was developed as protection from catastrophic, overwhelming losses, rather than everyday expenses.

A Bit of History

The origins of insurance date back to the 3rd millennia B.C., when Chinese merchants travelling treacherous river rapids would redistribute their wares across many vessels to limit loss due to any single vessel capsizing. They were, in essence, spreading their risk, much like an insurance company spreads its risk across many policies.

Insurance in the 21st Century

So here’s what you need to know about shopping for an insurance policy today:

  • You’re buying protection-an intangible product that you hope you’ll never need, but will be tremendously thankful to have should something bad happen.
  • The most basic insurance policies cover catastrophic events only-not day-to-day expenses, but the big costs that could wipe you out financially.
  • There are literally hundreds of insurance options available today, to fit every budget. Basic plans are a godsend to folks on a budget, while those who have the means may want to purchase a far more inclusive policy. The choices in between are almost limitless.
  • Your agent should be able to both simplify the complexities of insurance while presenting you with a number of options tailored to your needs and budget.

Perhaps the most important lesson about insurance: Don’t go without it. Financial catastrophes usually come hand-in-hand with emotional trauma. The last thing you need is to be worried about money at a time when you should be tending to your loved ones or employees.

If you don’t have an insurance agent, search online for someone local. Talk to several agents and pick one who doesn’t “push products” but, rather, listens to your needs and tailors a plan specifically for you. Developing a one-on-one relationship with an agent now is something you’ll be thankful for if, down the road, you, your family or your business should experience a catastrophe.

1. The World’s Unbeatable Sports Betting System- This is the where people normally ask if this is a Sports Betting Champ scam. A 97% win rate system? But, the 97% win rate is on bets made, not on games played. True this system is one that is best utilized by a person with a bankroll to back them up. But, it is surprisingly easy to use.

The system determines certain low risk bets, which can be predicted well ahead of time. That translates to only betting about 40% of the time. Approximately, 120 games out of the year between the two seasons. It uses a form of martingale wagering, applied to a three game series. Based on the premise that the team bet is sure to win one out of three games. Once your team wins one in the series, your done betting that series. This system also comes with a 67% win rate NFL system, and lifetime of free picks, well worth the $197 price tag!
