This was a popular post that I’m bringing back for the entertainment and educational value. This article below brings up a very interesting situation. What do you do if your gut tells you a news story can’t be true, but the story cites experts and you aren’t an expert, plus the story is on an official news web site, in this case, news.au. Here’s the story:

MOST of us believe winning lotto is down to the luck of the draw. But a syndicate of university professors and tutors in Britain thought it could also be related to the principles of mathematical probability….A syndicate of mathematics professors in Britain develop a formula for picking lotto numbers. .. they win $13 million. … The syndicate then set up a computer program to check the numbers every week. It took four years and a total outlay of $8700, but on Saturday, the formula succeeded. Matching the winning numbers and the bonus ball, they hit the jackpot. .. The syndicate, made up of 17 staff members at Bradford University and College, bagged the big prize by using two boxes, 49 pieces of paper and a large amount of brainpower. (News.au)

Here is the method they used:

Instead of each member randomly choosing numbers or relying on birthdays and significant dates as they had done this time they came up with an unbeatable formulae. All 49 numbers were written on pieces of paper and placed in one box. Each syndicate member in turn then picked out six numbers, until eight lines were filled, using 48 of the 49 numbers. The remaining number was then used to start a new line by the next syndicate member, who picked from a second box where the pieces of paper already drawn had been placed. As a result each number appeared at least twice in the syndicate’s 17 lines, with four numbers appearing three times.

The article is misleading. The formula / method they used did not increase their odds. There is always a 1 in 13.98 million chance of winning. You can’t increase those odds because the motion of the balls in the machine is random.

As one commenter put it:

This is a simple system that anyone could have used. It has no more to do with any ‘mathematical formula’ than sticking your finger up your nose.

Here is the real scoop on lottery math:

In a typical 6/49 game, six numbers are drawn from a range of 49 and if the six numbers on a ticket match the numbers drawn, the ticket holder is a jackpot winner–this is true no matter the order in which the numbers appear. The probability of this happening is 1 in 14 million (13,983,816 to be exact).

Don’t email Dr. Jordan or myself because you think one of us knows a secret formula for increasing your chances of winning the lottery.

It is the year 2019 and no one has won again with this formula, despite it being described on several sites. As you can see from the comments in this post, it’s not for lack of interest. If it worked, it would have worked again by now again. My view is that the group won by luck alone, not due to the formula.

Yes, it is true that a math formula won, but not because of the formula, just because they got lucky, like any other player might.

Are you still giving out lottery numbers for the Canadian Lotto 6/49 for free?

I have been playing for couple years now with hours put in of time almost daily of research on pattern and groups past presents draws etc. and there is no formula at all! it all comes down to how much efforts you welling to put in reading pattern of numbers and understand numbers and see numbers as positions , that’s my approach! I often buy few tickets a week so far I did won more than the average player! I managed to repeatedly predict the first (positions) numbers correctly , some times the back last few positions in couple case… Read more »

K Boltzmann’s constant (1.38065×10^-23); W multiplicity of states; time; arrange of numbers;…..)

After working a “few period of time” on all ww lotteries, I have concluded that k ln W (physics entropy, where w is the multiplicity of states) does not work as good as shannon’s entropy (known also as information entropy) (-SUM P(xi) * Log P(xi)) , Log in base 2. Anyways, my equation gives me a set of probable numbers. mostly of the time that set of numbers contains all the winner ones. it’s more a when than an if though.

Xeno are you Dr.John? both have the same image. Anyway I am not interested in a get rich quick method as many are(no offense to previous posts, it’s just my opinion that education is the way to go for stability). I am purely interested in physical science and theories of matter etc. I am curious if you are working on other projects and If I can aid in research as I am always interested in research as a hobby. I am also interested in building my skills with programs like Octave,Python,MAtlab etc. Currently I am using MIT opencourseware to learn… Read more »

Xeno. The ability to discern when things are same or different. Very true. I have a winning formula and still it cuts down the changes of winning from in the 9 million odd or something to in the one hundred thousand odd. Must remember the result when flipping a coin People should serve their community and not be told things for free. I really enjoyed the hunt for a formula and it probably took me 24hrs all up to find it. I wonder if it’s a skill I could use to better serve my community? Do u know. PS Me… Read more »

You are an excellent troller, listing theories to back up your outlandish claims.

Dr. J says, “I don’t have it anymore so you’ll need to work out the formula yourself. Just factor in the new data from Pluto as far as gravity influencing the probabilities of you winning and you’ll get it.” At least I think that’s what he said. He was sort of hard to hear from up in the hot air balloon when he flew over last night. – Xeno

HELLO DR JORDAN I NEVER RECEIVED THE COPY THAT I REQUESTED OF YOU IN 2009. MAY I STILL HAVE A COPY THANK YOU SO MUCH

Please help me to get three numbers for Ghana national lotto game . 5/90 lottogame

I am Miguel Florentino from New Mexico do not follow the tips all the lottery winner tell you they use cause it a big lie, cause the secret is spiritual voodoo. I was introduced to this spiritual voodoo priest called Dr. Soula and i was told he can help win the lottery I never believe it cause the distance where he satay is very far, He is from Africa and i see no reason to believe that this really but my friend out of alot of debt i still have to do it so as to pay back and sort… Read more »

Oh, then it is even easier to use the formula: just solve for the numbers you already know using a true random function in reverse.

The next winning numbers were drown some weeks ago; I just want to know how your system can truly work on that.To be frank,the next winning has already come up. I just want to compare.Please Xeno.

Of course. Will I? No. Money should be earned with hard work you do for the greatest possible good of your community, not just given away.

Hi Xeno,

Many thanks to you for such web site; can you please tell me the next five numbers after these 49-7-66-26-69 in 5/90 lotto?.

The lottery is not pure chance as some would suggest. Each ball is unique and because of this one is more likely to come out of the chute. Also, you can use past history of winning numbers provided the balls are never changed to get a better idea as to what numbers will come up. There are other behaviors to examine. For instance in the Powerball (united States) very seldom does the power ball match with any of the winning numbers. I believe developing a formula that incorporates recent history of three to six months and including other factors such… Read more »

Hi great Xeno, I found your formula too weird because I applied it in 5/90 games and got a near outcomes, would you permit me to work with you. Please reply.

Thanks.

Dear blog spammer, Your algorithm to generate text for “comment spamming” blogs is so bad it is funny. So I left this one up. Such embarrassing inhumanity.

I loved as much as you’ll receive carried out right here. The sketch is tasteful, your authored material stylish. nonetheless, you command get bought an edginess over that you wish be delivering the following. unwell unquestionably come more formerly again since exactly the same nearly very often inside case you shield this increase.

hi!,I really like your writing very much! proportion we be in contact extra about your article on AOL?

I require an expert in this area to solve my problem.

Maybe that’s you! Looking ahead to peer you.

That would make a good poll. Fluoride? GMO foods? Microwave mind manipulation? Lack of education?

Why is everyone so [screw]ing stupid?

Ereola J. Ogundairo, you are an idiot. Dr. Jordan is also an idiot. There is no way of increasing probability in a randomly generated lottery system. Don’t be fooled and everyone please stop wasting your time, go get jobs, and vote Republican.

Hi Xeno

I always believe that, Every question has an answer. Though I still cannot figure out how to use Xeno’s formula for 5/90 and 8/56 lottery, I believe Xeno can do it. There is NOTHING Called “IMPOSSIBLE” in this world. Bravo Xeno.

My mail: heavengatenobribe@yahoo.com

Lol that doesn’t even look like Britain, we use ¬£¬£ not $$ truth is no one can predict when they will win, it’s all coincidence.

No need to fix them, they already work.

Hi Xeno

How do I fix numbers in your formula to get next draw win?.

Of course.

Very soon this web site will be famous among all blogging users, due to it’s fastidious posts

you guys are full of [crap]!

most people believe the lotto is simple game of luck . do you really think so if this 17 people didn’t tried this method than they wouldn’t had won . i tried a method of maths too with 10 balls . once i matched 5 and other time i matched six balls. So ask yourself do you relly thought this is luck . it’s your opinion if you believe it is luck . i don’t freaken care atleast i know it took me hard work to get there to match 5 balls and six balls. So i disprove luck with… Read more »

how many 100s of other syndicates employed “maths” to win at the lottery? My guess is 14 million divided by 8,700. or about 1,600 synidcates. huh?

there are no formulas to the lottery!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you guys are full of it!!!!!!!!!!

There are different ways to utilize the formula. One way is to put in the winning numbers and it will predict if they will win 100% of the time.

forget that one if the formular work how do i apply it to forecast premier lotto in nigeria game period

Hint: (look for the secret word in this post) The formula only works when it predicts the future. Preticting the future using math is a life long goal requirering years of study. If your able to master it you don’t need the lottery. This sums it up. ” The syndicate then set up a computer program to check the numbers every week.? It took four years and a total outlay of $8700, but on Saturday, the formula succeeded. ” Looks like way less then 0.5% to me. They had the education, resorces, time and money to make it happen. Did… Read more »

As I have said, if you have to spend any time “figuring out” the formula, then you are wasting your time. Do not try to figure it out. Spend time on things with a better possibility of helping you. The key to intelligence, I believe, is very simple. It is the ability to tell when things are the same or different. This is what I call discernment. It sounds simple, but people make SO many bad choices because they think two things are the same when they are actually different. I do not know your situation, but I recommend you… Read more »

Winning the lottery is not a plan anyone should have to provide what is needed for survival. The lottery is a game you play when you can afford to lose your money by playing it.

My recommendation is that you take up a hobby, meet new friends, then barter an arrangement for caregiving while you go to school. Visualize your way to a better life. This has worked for many people. You have imagined the lottery getting you to a better place. Great, but don’t get stuck there. Get some more ideas and keep working on a way!

Please I have tried getting some journal on bolzman and I understand the concept,but law thermody and relationship with gas,however,please can you help me with those x:86:23 and fn t,Euro and yen symbols, please dont judge me,just remember those challenges i told about,people I need to care for and goin to school to study medicine,cant do this cause nobody is there to support.Dad dead and mother old,young ones there please help with hint,will not be proud,please it wont cost you anything, u can mail my box please

You’re far too modest Xeno.

If you leave out any part of my formula, it will be 97.3% worthless.

Cheng and Xeno can U please help,my result is without those Currency character, please other values are useful, please Will this alone s=k ln W * lottery numbers / g! be good. Please give little hint if I am wrong!

The formula works as well today as it did yesterday. It does not switch off and on.
