Wheeling Numbers

The last post I did proved again that I always get the bonus number in any lottery. The Canadian 649 draw came out with the numbers 3,8,10,19,31,33, and bonus number 40.

It also proved what I said that my numbers are a  number off the ones that hit. I chose numbers 4, 20, and 11. They are a tad off the numbers 3, 19, and 10.

BTW, I have a sinking feeling that one or two of the numbers for the next draw will be any of these : 18,26,32,16,14,12,11,10,5,4, and 2. AH but we will see.

I now come up with some strategy that will help you save money and at the same time play the odds. It is called wheeling your numbers. For instance, if you intend to play 12 lotto numbers, the full combination would amount to 924 six-number combinations. And for a dollar a combination, that would be a 924-dollar bet. That, and there is no guarantee that you will hit one correct number.

For a guarantee of at least one four-number win, a series of combinations can be formed using these twelve numbers to come out with only six-combinations, or a six-dollar bet. This means that if you hit four numbers, you will win at least one four-number prize, and at most the jackpot prize.

How to do this? Let us say that you chose to play these 12 numbers : 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12.

First divide them into four groups of three numbers each group thusly

1, 2, 3

4, 5, 6

7, 8, 9

10, 11, 12

Then combine them like this :                  1,2,3 + 4,5,6

                                                                         1,2,3 + 7,8,9

                                                                         1,2,3 + 10,11,12

                                                                          4,5,6 + 7.8.9

                                                                          4,5,6 + 10,11,12

                                                                           7,8,9 + 10,11,12

And there you have six combinations to cover 4 out of 6 guarantee win should you hit any of the four numbers correctly. To make it more interesting, add also the combinations

1,3,5,7,9,11  and 2,4,6,8,10,12  to cover any three number win.

Of course you can let any lotto number to stand for the wheeling numbers above which now becomes your template.

There should also be different templates for other win guarantees, and bigger sizes of bets.

Your next and biggest problem, therefore, should also be of how to choose your winning numbers.

HAH! Wouldn’t you like to know?
