Chosen Numbers - A Lottery System?

Posted on

Chosen Numbers Lottery System

Is our Chosen Numbers approach of choosing lottery numbers a lottery system???

That is a very good question.

The answer is no.

Lottery systems make use of certain information from previous draws.

They would use frequencies of numbers played and map "best" and "worst" numbers from this data.

These sequences chosen by these systems are perceived as being the most likely numbers which could show up for the next draw.


Does this technique actually work?


No.


With lotteries, there is no co-relation between numbers previously drawn and future draws.

Lotteries choose their numbers randomly, so there is no rind or reason to create a lottery system because frankly, lottery systems do not work.

Each draw is independent of previous draws because of the randomness of the numbers drawn.

One cannot predict the random sequences of a lottery.

But What About Chosen Numbers?

Chosen Numbers is not a system but rather an approached to eliminate duplicate sequences.

Removing duplicate sequences mean that there are more chances of winning because more unique sequences are played.

The more unique sequences played, the greater the chances of a winner being chosen.

It is a proactive, strategic approach.

We do not look at how the lottery performed in the past.

We do however keep track of the sequences which players are being provided from our pools of numbers.

Collectively, the more people who play chosen number sequences, the higher number of unique plays, so the higher probability that there will be winners from our selections.

Just run the why simulator to see first-hand how systematic selections are better than random selections.

People who chose quick picks would be the random red dice.

People who play chosen number sequences would be the green dice.

If 6 people played this mini lottery, there is a guaranteed winner on the green dice.

Not so on the red dice.


Is the chosen numbers method a "lottery system"?

I guess it all depends on what the definition of a lottery system would be.

If a lottery system is a technique to predict lottery numbers, then no, we are not a lottery system.

But if a lottery system is a technique to better the odds at winning, then yes, we are a lottery system.


You choose.


Or better yet, let us choose...your lottery numbers that is.

Asking AI Chosen Numbers

We know that chosen number selections make sense when choosing lottery number selections.

As the creators of this unique process, we may be a bit biased.

We had also posted an article of what it would be like if lotteries used chosen number selections.

Let's ask the "real" experts, or in this case, the virtual ones.


We asked a popular AI platform it's opinion.

ChatGPT 3.5

We asked ChatGPT 3.5 a simple question:


User


How would a lottery differ if players were able to choose number sequences from pools of unplayed sequences?


ChatGPT

Allowing players to choose number sequences from pools of unplayed sequences would fundamentally change the nature of the lottery in several ways:

  1. Reduced Randomness and Fairness:
    • Traditional lotteries rely on pure randomness, where every number sequence has an equal chance of being drawn.
    • If players choose from unplayed sequences, the selection process is no longer entirely random since certain combinations are excluded from the pool. This reduces the unpredictability that is central to a lottery.
  2. Higher Chances of Unique Winners:
    • One of the main issues in lotteries is the possibility of multiple winners, leading to the prize being split.
    • If players can only choose unplayed sequences, the likelihood of having multiple winners for the same draw decreases significantly because no two players can select the same sequence.
  3. Increased Complexity in Administration:
    • Managing pools of unplayed sequences would require sophisticated tracking and updating systems to ensure that once a sequence is chosen, it is no longer available.
    • This could add operational complexity and potential errors in the administration of the lottery.
  4. Strategy and Skill Involvement:
    • Traditional lotteries are games of pure chance with no skill or strategy involved.
    • Allowing choice from unplayed sequences introduces an element of strategy. Players might try to anticipate which sequences are less likely to be picked by others and choose accordingly.
  5. Potential for More Frequent Smaller Wins:
    • Since no two players can choose the same sequence, the distribution of smaller prizes might change. If a smaller number of people play, there could be more frequent smaller wins among the participants.
  6. Increased Participant Engagement:
    • The option to choose from unplayed sequences might make the game more engaging for some players, as they might feel they have a more active role in the selection process.
  7. Impact on Prize Pools:
    • The total prize pool might be affected if the number of participants decreases due to the complexity or changes in the odds of winning.
    • However, unique winner scenarios might lead to larger individual prizes, potentially attracting more players.
  8. Statistical Predictability:
    • Over time, patterns might emerge regarding which sequences are more or less frequently chosen.
    • This could lead to more predictable outcomes, reducing the lottery's appeal to those who enjoy the unpredictability of traditional lotteries.

In summary, allowing players to choose from pools of unplayed sequences introduces strategic elements, reduces randomness, and increases the likelihood of unique winners. However, it also complicates the administration and might change the nature of the lottery from a game of pure chance to one that involves a level of skill and strategy.



Interesting response, and in favor of our concept.

So to be thorough, we got a second opinion.

Gemini

We asked Google's Gemini the same question.


Question


How would a lottery differ if players were able to choose number sequences from pools of unplayed sequences?


Answer


Advantages for Players:

  • Reduced chance of sharing the jackpot: With random picks, there's a higher chance multiple people will have the winning numbers, resulting in a shared jackpot. Choosing unplayed sequences eliminates this entirely.
  • More strategic play: Players could analyze past winning and non-winning sequences to develop strategies for picking "hot" or "cold" sequences (sequences that haven't appeared in a while).

Disadvantages for Players:

  • Increased complexity: This system requires tracking unplayed sequences, which can be overwhelming for casual players.
  • Potential for sequence exhaustion: Depending on the pool size and number of players, there's a chance all unplayed sequences could be chosen, forcing a reset or rule changes.

Changes for the Lottery:

  • Larger pool size: Lotteries would need significantly larger pools of number sequences to accommodate this system.
  • Transparency: The lottery would need a system to display which sequences are unplayed, which could be a logistical challenge.
  • Potential for lower jackpots: With fewer shared jackpots, individual jackpots might be smaller on average.

Overall Impact:

  • More strategic play: The lottery would become less random and more strategic, potentially attracting a different kind of player.
  • Increased complexity: The system might become less accessible to casual players due to the added complexity.
  • Potential revenue impact: The lottery might see a shift in revenue depending on how many players are drawn to the strategic aspect.

It's important to note that this is a hypothetical scenario. Lotteries are designed to be simple and random, and this system would introduce complexities that might not be desirable.

In summary, allowing players to choose from pools of unplayed sequences introduces strategic elements, reduces randomness, and increases the likelihood of unique winners. However, it also complicates the administration and might change the nature of the lottery from a game of pure chance to one that involves a level of skill and strategy.



Our Conclusion of Both AI Models

The AI models both said what we already know, and that is there would be more winners when players choose lottery sequences from a source which has unique sequences.

Lotteries would not change their methods of playing, but we can definitely augment the players experience by providing what lotteries can't, and that is providing a tool to choose numbers from pools.

The more people who play our sequences, the closer we would get to the predictions AI made above.

You can ask AI yourself. It does seem to know what it is talking about.

The Chosen Numbers concept is built for the players, for the advantage of players.

Play Chosen Numbers selections when you play the lottery.


Note: Our title stated, "Asking A.I. - What is the Best Way to Play the Lottery?"

We did pose that exact question to A.I. verbatim but the response was basically common sense with no clue about lottery pools of unplayed numbers - lotteries do not have pools.

It responded with suggestions such as budgetting, play responsibly, play uncommon numbers, check your numbers, understand the odds.

Nothing as earth shattering as the question we posed to A.I. where it proves our concept is viable to the players.



The Ultimate Lottery Quickpick Tool

Chosen Numbers Ultimate Quick Pick Tool

What If?


What if lotteries choose quick picks from pools of numbers which haven't already been picked by someone?

What would this mean for a lottery?

What would this mean for players?


The lotteries would need to keep track of all the numbers which have already been played.

They would then need to choose an unpicked sequence when someone asks for a quick pick.

The end result, there would be more unique combinations played each draw because there would not be any duplicates.

Because more number sequences are played, jackpots would not roll over as frequently because there would be more winners every draw.

Note: There could still be duplicates however because players would still play their own favorite numbers.

Chosen Numbers is the Ultimate Lottery Quickpick Tool

Reality.


Lotteries do not provide quick picks as described above.

Lotteries choose quick picks via a random number generator.

Because lotteries choose their quick picks using random numbers, they will be introducing duplicates and non-unique sequences.


This is where we come in.

This is the niche that Chosen Numbers is attempting to fill in.

We are keeping track of number sequences chosen from our pools.

No duplicates (until there is a pool reset).

Unique sequences.

The more people who play numbers chosen from our website, the closer we would come to the "What If".

Our method is built for players, not the lotteries.

Play Chosen Numbers selections when you play the lotteries.

Collectively, it is giving players an advantage because more unique combinations are played.


If you are going to play the lottery using quick picks, use the ultimate quickpick tool by having our website choose your numbers.

Chosen Numbers 2024-05-05

We have been playing lottery numbers for over 40 years.


Question: Do we have chosennumbers.com choose our lottery selections when we play?

Answer: Absolutely. We are now.

Reasoning

First off, we too would like to be one of the fortunate few to win a lottery.


Who wouldn't?

That's why we play the lotteries.


Secondly, since we are playing, we need to decide on numbers to play.

We summarized the various methods people choose lottery numbers in our "How Should Players Choose Their Lottery Numbers" article.


And we have chosen the quick picks assigned by chosen numbers method.


For Lotto MAX in Canada, we only play when there are Maximillions.

There are more big prizes when Maximillions are in play.


In the past, we used to play quickpicks.

We are now having chosennumbers.com choose our lottery numbers.


Not only is it choosing our numbers, we have already won twice.

Both times free play winners, but still, it has proven that the numbers provided by chosennumbers.com can win.


The first time we didn't have any proof.

With my second win, we did a screen shot before and after the draw.


Chosen Numbers Winner 2024-05-07

Since I play online through Playnow.com, it is really easy to transcribe the lottery selections from chosennumbers.com website to playnow.com when I purchase a ticket.

It is just that easy.

Give Chosen Numbers a try.


Note: Let us know in our >contact form how you did with your lottery selections.



Systematic, but not Sequential

Posted on

by

Chosen Numbers Heading - Systematic

Here at Chosen Numbers, we are assigning lottery numbers systematically.

Our quickpicks are NOT random selections, but selected programmatically.


What does that mean?


First off we have created a function to generate lottery numbers sequences based on the index.

For those who are computer or math savvy, this can be represented as a function:


f(x)={lottery number sequence}


So for a lottery which has 6 numbers from a pool of 49 numbers, or 13,938,816 possibilities, the first four and last four sequences from the function would be as follows:


f(1) = {1,2,3,4,5,6}

f(2) = {1,2,3,4,5,7}

f(3) = {1,2,3,4,5,8}

f(4) = {1,2,3,4,5,9}

...

(13,938,808 additional sequences)

...

f(13938813) = {43,44,45,47,48,49}

f(13938814) = {43,44,46,47,48,49}

f(13938815) = {43,45,46,47,48,49}

f(13938816) = {44,45,46,47,48,49}


How do We Choose?

So we have a function, now what?

We now need to find a logical way of presenting these numbers to the players.

This method must be programmatic.

It must span the entire pool of available numbers.

It must provide unique numbers until the pool resets when all sequences have been exhausted.

We have narrowed down the process to a couple of choices.

Sequentially or systematically.


Sequentially


Chosen Numbers - Sequential

The above image shows illustratively numbers being chosen sequentially.

Programmatically it would be easy. Just maintain a pointer and add one to it for the next sequence.

We could have chosen this approach, but that would not be too much fun for the players.

Lottery number sequences would be bunched together wherever the index is currently sitting, be it at the beginning, middle or end of the pool of numbers.

Players would also be able to predict the next sequence.

We believe players want to see numbers which do not look sequential.


Systematically


Chosen Numbers - Systematic

This is the approach we have adopted for our pools of numbers.


What we are storing is an offset and an increment.

We then add the increment and offset to the index and this provides the next sequence of lottery numbers.


We have some checks in place to see if the offset and increment exceeds the number of sequences in the pool.

If so, we start at the lower offset but increment it by 1.

This way we are providing lottery combinations throughout the entire range of the given lottery.

It also provides a bit of variety to the numbers generated.

The next sequences are not easy to predict.


Each lottery on our website has its own unique increment.

That way different sequences would be generated with lotteries with the same play format.

We decided the increment should be a number between 32000 and 34000.

We also decided to choose prime numbers for the increment as well (kind of following the methodology used by various crypto algorithms).

This logic is used for the main number sequences for a lottery.


For lotteries with a "Mega Ball" or "PowerBall", here we are adding a sequentially increased number.

Frankly, we chose this method for this additional "ball" because it was easier to implement.


Aside Note:

All of our lottery pools do start at the same index, and that index is f(1), so depending on the lottery, the first sequence is 1,2,3,4,5,6 for a lottery with six numbers drawn.


So that's how we do it.

Storing index pointers.

Remember, play with chosen numbers.



We Have Been Through This a Million Times

Chosen Numbers - Why - A Million Times

We have a simulation setup to show the disadvantages of using random numbers at our Why Page.

The goal of that page - How many rolls of the dice will it take for each number to appear at least once?


We can give you the answer for systematically - it is always 6.

Random is a different story.

For each number to be hit at least once with random, the results can be anything from 6 to SOMETHING.


We asked ourselves, how high could this SOMETHING go?


We wrote another simulation to figure that out.


We did the side by side compare 1,000,000 times.

That is a million times running the "why" simulation.


Here is a snapshot of the results after running the "why" simulation a million times.


The number on the left is the number of rolls so each number was hit at least once.

The number on the right is how often it took for that many rolls (also known as frequency).


Results

  • 6 => 15,316
  • 7 => 38,606
  • 8 => 60,225
  • 9 => 74,701

  • 83 => 1
  • 85 => 1
  • 89 => 1
  • 92 => 1
  • Total Rolls=14,702,658

Summary of the Results

With a six sided dice, the odds of any side of the dice to come up is 1 in 6.

In the sampling above, the worst case scenario was 92, with one occurrence.


92 rolls for each number to come up at least once.


That is a ridiculously high number.

But 1,000,000 times doing the why simulation is also a very high number.


With systematic, the number of rolls was always 6.

So with 1 million attempts, there would have been 6,000,000 rolls, ie. 6 x 1,000,000 of the systematic dice.


With random, as you can see above, there were 14,702,658 rolls.

Based on our efficiency calculation, systematic is 145% more efficient on average than random.

This is based on the calculation (14,702,658 / 6,000,000 * 100) - 100


Other interesting tidbits from the above data.

11 rolls had the highest frequency, with 84,367 times.


The higher the rolls, the less frequency (which one would expect).


There are some rolls between the lowest and highest which were never hit, for example 82, 84.


The image that we have included with this article could have been one of the 300 hits out of 1,000,000 where 45 was the number of rolls so every number was hit at least once - with 2 being the pesky rascal which was hindering the odds.

Conclusion

Random numbers are interesting, but they are no way to choose lottery numbers.

One would figure the odds of rolling a dice are 1 in 6.

The reality is the odds could be as low as 1 in 92, or even worse.

With 92 rolls, the efficiency of systematic over random is 1350%, but that is the worst case scenario in our sampling.


Systematic is the way to go.


Use chosen numbers when playing the lottery.



What is a Lottery Pool Reset?

Posted on

by

Chosen Numbers Pool Reset

We have mentioned in a couple of articles that we provide unique combinations of numbers until all the combinations for that lottery are exhausted, then we perform a pool reset.


What is a lottery pool reset?


First off, this process only occurs on our chosen numbers pool of numbers.

It is when we reset the index for a particular lottery.


There are 2 reasons we would perform a pool reset.

  1. The lottery changed its format.
  2. The pool of lottery sequences is exhausted.

The Lottery Changed Its Format

When a lottery changes their format, a pool reset is required.

This doesn't happen very frequently, but it does happen.


On October 4, 2015, Powerball in the US changed their format by increasing the white ball pool from 59 to 69 and decreasing the powerball pool from 35 to 26.


On May 14, 2019, LottoMAX in Canada added another ball changing the pool of numbers from 49 to 50.


When lottery formats change, the number of possible combinations of the pool changes.

We systematically determine the next sequence of numbers by performing calculations on the current index.

We will provide more information on this process for another article, but we do not go through the numbers sequentially, but rather mathematically or as we call it, systematically.

So a change in lottery format requires us to manually perform a pool reset to keep the processes consistent.


Aside note: If a lottery changes their format by adding another draw day, that does not change the number of combinations so no pool reset is required.


The Pool of Lottery Sequences is Exhausted

If a pool reset is required because of all possible sequences are exhausted, that is really good news for players and really good news for us.

That means a lot of players are playing with chosen numbers selections.

A pool reset automatically occurs after a player chooses the last number in the pool.

When a player chooses their lottery and are provided with their sequence of numbers, we also provide their position in the pool.

Each pool starts with position number 1 and the position number increases by 1.

When the last sequence of lottery numbers are provided to the user, the player will see sequence 13,983,816 of 13,983,816 (for a pool with 13,983,816 possible sequences).

We would automatically reset the pool and a new set of sequences will be provided to the players starting at 1 again.

After a pool reset occurs, then there are duplicate numbers being assigned.

However, the optimal way of playing chosen numbers is to choose numbers for every draw, so duplicates for a particular draw should not happen.

There are no duplicate numbers between pool resets, but there are duplicates across pool resets.

There are only a limited numbers of lottery sequences in a pool. It is usually in the millions. So for a lottery which has the odds of winning as 1 in 13,983,816, that means that lottery has 13,983,816 unique lottery number combinations.


One Final Note

Upon building this site, We initially planned to reset the pool right after each draw.

This would allow for new numbers to be assigned for each draw.

However, if we aren't hitting the maximum numbers of sequences between lottery draws, then it didn't matter if we did a reset because we would still be assigning unique numbers from a non-reset pool.

This philosophy may change depending on popularity of the site, but currently we are only performing a pool reset once all the lottery numbers in the pool are exhausted (or the lotteries change their format of course).



How Should Players Choose Their Lottery Numbers?

Posted on

Choosing Lottery Numbers

Millions of people play lotteries.

So millions of people have to make a choice each draw on what numbers to play.

Choices

Players generally have 4 options for choosing their numbers:

  1. Play their favorite lottery numbers.
  2. Have the lottery choose their numbers.
  3. Miscellaneous categories.
  4. Play systematically chosen numbers.

Let's do a deeper dive into each of these approaches.

Play Their Favorite Lottery Numbers

Some people have a set of lottery numbers they call their own.

These lottery numbers usually have some significance in the player's lives including:

  • - birthdays of the player, family members
  • - anniversaries, graduations
  • - favorite numbers
  • - numbers from a dream
  • - team jerseys
  • - garbage day cycle
  • - combinations of some or all the above

There are endless possibilities.

These numbers may already be memorized, so they will be easy to play and to verify on draw days.

These players may already subscribe to a service with their numbers, or have a player form already filled out ready to go.

One drawback with favorite numbers is uniqueness.

There is no guarantee that the player is the only person playing these numbers.

They could be the only one, however there could be dozens with the same numbers.

Another drawback is that individual's choices of numbers are considered random to the lottery.

Every person is unique, and given the number of players in a lottery, if everyone played their own numbers, that is a lot of random numbers.

Have the Lottery Choose Their Numbers

Players who play ad-hoc usually have a tendancy to choose a "Quick Pick", "Random Selection", "Lucky Dip", "Easy Pick" or "Auto Pick".

Whatever name you know it as, this method has the lottery choose numbers for them.

Unfortunately the selection process at the ticket kiosk is always random.

Although random sounds good, it is not the most efficient method of choosing numbers for a lottery.

Random numbers create duplicates, and anytime duplicates are introduced, it will take longer to get all lottery sequences.

It is good for the lottery because it allows a quick sale of tickets, and easy for the player...."One quick pick please".

According to https://www.searchlogistics.com/learn/statistics/lottery-statistics/, 70% of people who play the lotteries do so with random numbers.

Miscellaneous Categories

Miscellaneous would cover any methods or techniques currently not covered above.

Players may choose other lottery websites which also generate lottery ticket numbers.

However, based on our research, all websites with the exception of ours generate their lottery numbers using the randomly generated number method.

Another miscellaneous method is if someone thinks they have a system. Note: This is NOT the same as systematic.

This could involve deriving numbers based on statistics of a given lottery, such as most frequently drawn numbers, or least frequently drawn numbers.

Other methods could be ritualistic or habitual.

People may grab the first numbers they see while reading the newspaper.

The first numbers they see on license plates on the way to work.

Some people may ask their pets. Posing numbers to a dog or cat and watch their reaction is an interesting way of getting lottery numbers.

None of these "Miscellaneous" methods have any merit because they will not work with the randomness of lottery numbers. (Sorry Fido).

These numbers could almost be categorized as favorites but the numbers change for every draw.

However these numbers are derived, the player of one of these methods must still fill in a lottery sheet to play their numbers, so to the player it is the same process when purchasing a ticket from a reseller as though they played their favorite numbers.

Play Systematically Chosen Numbers

This is the niche we are filling in. This method is new and has merit.

We are systematically choosing numbers from a pool of available numbers per lottery.

Set pools of numbers with all combinations for a lottery.

The ticket buying process will be similar to other methods.

The player would visit our site and be provided the next sequence from our pool.

They would then fill out the lottery form with the numbers provided by our systematic method.


Collectively, it makes sense to play lotteries with our systematically chosen numbers.

Systematic selections offer:

  1. All possible combinations.
  2. The least amount of tries to go through all combinations.
  3. There are no duplicates (unless there is a pool reset).

The systematic method makes the most sense for players because collectively it is a move away from the randomness factor of choosing lottery numbers.

The biggest downfall of random numbers is it creates duplicates.

Out of all the options listed, the first three are considered random. If you check out our blog article, Increase your Odds at Winning the Lottery, you will mathematically see the disadvantages of playing the lottery with random selections.

Let's move away from random selections.

Start playing the smarter way.

Start playing systematically.

Chosen numbers are the way to go.



Increase Your Odds at Winning the Lottery

Posted on

Chosen Numbers Real Lotteries

Back on March 3rd, 2024 we published a blog article blog article about comparing our why page with a mini lottery.

In that article, you can see the results one can expect by rolling a dice.

The Real Thing - Real Lottery Breakdown

Now let's look at the odds with real lotteries and crunch some realistic numbers.


A typical state or provincial lottery in the US or Canada would normally have millions of possible combinations.

There would also be millions of players for each lottery.


A popular format for a lottery is choosing 6 numbers from a pool of 49 numbers.

This play format is used in the following lotteries in the US and Canada:

  1. Pick 6 (US)
  2. Florida Lotto (US)
  3. Colorado Lotto (US)
  4. Classic Lotto (US)
  5. Lotto649 (Canada)
  6. Western49 (Canada)
  7. Atlantic49 (Canada)
  8. BC49 (Canada)
  9. Ontario49 (Canada)
  10. Quebec49 (Canada)

The odds of winning this style of lottery is 1 in 13,983,816.


We will be posing 2 questions.


1) "How many draws will it take so each combination has been drawn at least once?"

The answer may surprise you.

With the odds of winning being 1 in 13,983,816, one would figure the number of draws would be close to 13,983,816 draws.

However, we crunched the numbers multiple times programmatically to find the average using a simulation.

In order for each combination to be selected at least once, we would need on average 232,700,000 draws.

That is a lot of draws!

If we breakdown these results, each combination was chosen at least 16 times. That is 16 duplicates on average per combination. The highest number of times a combination was drawn was 44 times in our case studies.

The lowest, well 1 because of the rules we had....ie "How many draws would it take so each combination has been drawn at least once?", so our simulation stopped after each combination was hit.

The reason the results are so high is because lottery draws are random.

Bottom line...random numbers produced duplicates and as you can see by the results, a lot of duplicates.


2) "How many lottery combinations would be chosen if we had 13,983,816 draws?"

A slightly different approach but equally as surprising results.

Again, we ran a simulation and on average we would hit 8,839,200 different sets of lottery numbers.

That is only 63% of the total number of lottery combinations.

What that means is roughly 37% of the lottery combinations were never hit.

Why?

Again, because random selections produce duplicate entries.

How Do We Better the Odds of Winning the Lottery?

As you can see by the 2 questions posed above, the odds are not in one's favor with random numbers because duplicates are produced.

The odds can be made better by the method of systematically choosing lottery numbers.

Currently, the method which people are playing the lottery collectively is random. So the odds of winning would be reflected by the 2 questions we asked above.

However, collectively, if 13,983,816 players used systematically chosen numbers, then there is a 100% chance of one of those players winning the lottery.

Systematically choosing numbers will removed the possibility of duplicates. It will ensure that all possible combinations of lottery numbers are provided to players.

Math doesn't lie.

Our site is the only lottery supporting website which is generating lottery selections systematically.

It is there for the benefit of the players.

Play Chosen Numbers and collectively increase your odds of winning.



A Closer Look at our Demo - It is Like a Mini Lottery

A Closer Look at our Demo

At our Why page we have a demo setup to show the benefits of systematically choosing numbers compared to a random approach.

Mini Lottery

The demo could be looked at like a mini lottery, with a small number of players.

With this mini lottery, players choose a number from 1 to 6 then on draw day the lottery would pull one number.

So the odds of winning this mini lottery is 1 in 6.

Breakdown If 6 People Played the Mini Lottery

If 6 people played, one would figure that someone would win?

After all, the odds are 1 in 6.

Well, it depends on how they chose their numbers.

If the 6 players chose their numbers randomly, then no, there is no guarantee that someone will win.

Also if a player's number did come up, there is also no guarantee that they will be the only winner because there could be duplicates with random selections.

If players were allowed to choose their selection base on their lucky number from 1 to 6, again no guaranteed winner. This is similar to random selections because players selections collectively would be random.

However, if the same 6 players chose Chosen Numbers to provide them with their selections, then yes, there would be a guaranteed winner.

Each player would be assigned a unique number from 1 to 6, in this case, sequentially.

There would also be only one winner.

For these 6 players:

  1. Using Chosen Numbers, individually the odds of winning is 1 in 6.
  2. Using Chosen Numbers, collectively the odds of winning are 100%

One Demo, 2 Observations

This demo can be run in 2 ways to demonstrate the benefits of systematically choosing lottery numbers.

  • Roll until one method hit all 6 numbers
  • Roll until both methods hit all 6 numbers

Roll until one method hit all 6

Since a systematic approach will always result in 6 rolls, there is a strong possibility that systematic will beat out random. After 6 rolls, the random side should have some duplicates which also means that some numbers will not have been rolled yet.

Roll until both methods hit all 6 numbers

Once you have rolled 6 times, keep on rolling. How long will it take for the random approach to hit each combination?

Once both methods have hit each number once, then an efficiency is calculated by taking the count of total random attempts divided by 6 x 100 then subtract 100.

The systematic Chosen Numbers method will most likely always beat out the random method.

Final Observation

With this mini lottery, if players used random numbers or personal picks, then the lottery would benefit because there is no guaranteed winner.

However, if players used chosen numbers, then the players would benefit collectively because there is a guaranteed winner.

You have to ask yourself, are you playing the lottery for a player to win, or for the lottery to win?

Give Chosen Numbers a try.



Website Soft-Launch

Chosen Numbers Logo

We have Launched.

Happy leapday of 2024.

We are performing a soft launch of our website.

We purchased the domain on February 3, 2024.

Prior to the domain purchase, we came up with the logic of indexing lotteries and thought, This is a GREAT idea!

At soft launch, we have a total of 28 lotteries across the US and Canada.

We have 17 lotteries in the US and 11 in Canada making sure we have the national lotteries covered.

We created the logo with a similar look to our sister website, Lottodatabase.com which has all the draws of the same lotteries we have listed here.

The initial thought was to include the chosen numbers philosophy at lottodatabase.com but realized that this concept is bigger, and required its own website.

If you look at our Why page, it only make sense to play lotteries this way.
