How to Beat the Odds of the EuroMillions Game
You cannot beat the odds of EuroMillions. Thankfully, math can help. There’s a way to improve your chances of winning the game.
And the only way to increase your chance of winning is to buy more tickets.
There’s no other way. Lotterycodex is here to tell you the truth.
No matter what strategy you employ to win the game, the underlying probability never changes.
So here in Lotterycodex, I want to emphasize the truth.
The only way to increase your chance is to buy more tickets.
But that doesn’t mean it’s OK to choose 1-2-3-4-5, and 2-3-4-5-6, and 46-47-48-49-50.
Stay tuned because I will use mathematics to explain why.
Lotterycodex is here to reveal the right way to play the game mathematically.
But first of all, I must ask you to forget about hot or cold numbers. For the longest time, people mistakenly believe that if a number frequently occurs in the past, the same number is bound to be drawn more often in the future. This belief must be corrected.
Now, let’s proceed.
All combinations in EuroMillions 5/50 have the same probability.
It means that 1-2-3-4-5 is equally likely.
Play 2-4-6-8-10, and that is equally likely too.
Perhaps your combination is 5-10-15-20-25, this combination has the same probability.
The truth, all combinations have equal chances.
But think about this. Consider more tickets where all numbers are picked in the form of straight combinations:
If I ask lotto players to spend their money on the above combinations, the surest response I will get is “no way.”
And why not?
That’s because people don’t trust their understanding of probability.
“Gut feeling” dominates your belief
You see, if you are confident that all combinations have the same probability, why be afraid to play all those combinations.
In other words, while you believe that all combinations have the same probability, there’s part of you that says buying “multiple tickets where all combinations are straight numbers” cannot be right.
But gut feeling shouldn’t be superior to mathematics.
If you want to win the EuroMillions game, you have to have a strong mathematical foundation.
And mathematics says:
There’s a big difference between having lots of wrong combinations and having the right hundreds of combinations.
But how do we explain this mathematically?
Keep on reading, and I will tell you how. Math, indeed, is fascinating.
