Lottery Betting's Biggest Question
Will I Ever Win The Lottery?
"How long is a piece of string?" That's an easy one. "What's the meaning of life?" 42! "Will I ever win the lottery?" – ah, well that really is a tough question to answer, but hey, we're going to do our best to answer it anyway!
We've all done it at some point - as the workday drags on slowly we stare out the window daydreaming about winning the lottery. Later we snap out of it and ask ourselves, "will I ever win the lottery?"
Well, the great thing about that question is that there's only two answers, yes or no.
This gives you a 50-50 chance. So, based on that criteria we could just go ahead and say yes, and we'll have a 50% chance of being correct.
That's a passing grade, a majority win – a coin-flip chance.
Though it's also wildly inaccurate, because, as we all know, lotteries are about beating far bigger odds than a mere 50/50 split.
Which leads us, once more, back to the evergreen topic of lottery odds...
Choosing The Right Lottery
In our last post, "which lottery is the easiest to win?", we looked at the different lottery odds, jackpot and otherwise, to help you determine your ideal lottery game.
If you haven't read the article yet we recommend you do so, to help find the lottery which best suits your specific preferences. It doesn't matter if you're playing with a ticket in store, or betting on the outcome at Lottoland, our sage advice works for both!
As the article explains, not all lotteries are created equally – some offer enormous jackpots, but at insanely high odds. Others offer far more favourable odds but the prizes aren't quite so dramatic. Then there are other lotteries offering a balance between both.
So, in other words, the best way to beat the odds is to find a lottery with odds that are easier to beat.
