Exposing the VII Lotto Lies
It’s been said that there are lies we are told and there are lies we tell ourselves. There is no subject where this is truer than the lotto. Lies that range from myths to whoppers. Hopefully, the Lottery Lie series of articles will shed some light where it’s needed.
The first lotto lie is the classical skeptic’s comment.
Lottery Lie Number One – There is nothing you can do to increase your chances of winning the lottery.
The purpose of the Lotto Lie No. 1 article, is to tackle the skeptics to task. There is nothing a skeptic hates more than reason, logic and facts.
It will probably have little effect on them, but you will lsm99 probably enjoy watching them squirm as I lay out my case.
The first lotto lie is actually quite naive when you think about it. Like so many other games, like Blackjack, Roulette, Craps and Texas Holdem, the lotto is a game of chance. And, like all games of chance, the professional player has a distinct advantage over the novice. If you agree with this, you should enjoy the Lotto Lie No. 1 article.
The second lotto lie article focuses on the word ‘Random’. The word ‘Random’ is so misused, abused and misunderstood that I classify it as a lotto secret. So, read the Lotto Lie No. 2 article and all will be revealed.
Lottery Lie No. 2 – The lotto is a random game of chance.
Blackjack, Roulette, Craps and Texas Holdem have all been referred to as random games of chance. So, why is it that professional gamblers do quite well at these games? Could it be they know something we don’t? If this is true, why should the lotto be any different? It isn’t. Read the Lotto Lie No. 2 article and discover why professional gamblers see the words, ‘random game of chance’, as an opportunity.
The Lotto Lie No. 3 article dispels the myth that the lotto is a fair game. At first, you might just accept the statement and move on. But, if you stop and think about it a second, many questions come to mind like ‘Says who?’ and ‘Why’. In fact, when you begin to see just how many winning lotto strategies there are, you will see the game isn’t fair at all.
Lottery Lie No. 3 – The Lottery is a fair game. The chances of winning the Lottery are the same for us all.
Of course, the state lotto officials must say it’s a fair game just as the casino operator must say the Blackjack tables are fair. But, you know that this simply isn’t true. Would you think it was fair if Doyle Brunson sat down at your Texas Holdem table? Although, it would be fun, you know where your money is going to end up. The Lotto Lie No. 3 article is a real eye opener.
The Lotto Lie No. 4 article addresses another common myth about the lotto: A computer can’t help improve your odds of winning the lotto. Well, you guessed it. Another lie bites the dust.
Lottery Lie No. 4 – A computer won’t help you increase your chances of winning the Lottery Jackpot.
It amazes me that otherwise intelligent people would make such an inane statement. Think about it. Is there anything in our lives today that the computer hasn’t helped? Man has created the internet, the cell phone, sent robots to Mars, unraveled the genetic codes but can’t help improve your lotto play! You’re going to really enjoy the Lotto Lie No. 4 article.
There are skeptics that say, using a computer for lotto number analysis is a waste of time. Of course, they’ve never tried but are convinced that they are experts on the subject. If they had taken the time to look, they would be shocked to find lotto trends and patterns at every turn. They are everywhere like agates on a beach. This brings us to Lotto Lie No. 5.
Lottery Lie No. 5 – Lottery trends do not exist.
Did you know that there are people who possess a unique ability to look at a lotto’s winning number history and see lotto number patterns and trends? They are few and far between and, I admit, I don’t have a clue how they do it. Just thinking about it makes me start looking for a bottle of Motrin. But, give me a computer and I’ll find trends and patterns ’til the cows come home. The Lotto Lie No. 5 article will get your juices flowing.
Did you ever have to deal with some holier than thou, sanctimonious self-proclaimed example of human purity, looking down their nose at you because you are in desperate need of redemption. Well, I have some fun with the anointed among us in the Lotto Lie No. 6 article. I’m sure they won’t see it that way, since their heads are so far up in the clouds it’s a wonder they can even breathe. If you’ve ever met someone like this, you will take great pleasure in reading the Lotto Lie No. 6 article.
Lottery Lie No. 6- I don’t play the lotto because that’s gambling.
So, it’s gambling. So, what? It’s fun, exciting and easy to play and, if played responsibly, it’s inexpensive and not going to cause financial harm to anyone playing. So, what are you waiting for? Start up the bubble machine and let’s have a drawing.
Now, if someone, because of some heartfelt religious belief, doesn’t gamble, I’m fine with that and even respect their decision. But, when a hypocrite assumes he is somehow superior and tries to lay claim to some moral high ground, then I calm down and write something like Lotto Lie No. 6 just for them. I hope you enjoy the Lotto Lie No. 6 article as much as I enjoyed writing it.
There seems to be no shortage of skeptics and critics who enjoy expressing their disdain at the use of lotto software to increase a player’s odds of winning the lotto. They essentially believe it’s all nonsense. Even in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, from the analysis of the histories of winning numbers from every lotto, the skeptics and critics fall back on what they think is their trump card. Using lotto software is cheating. That’s Lotto Lie No. 7; the subject of the final article in the lotto lies series.
