Buying lotto for March 6th was a failure. I bought lotto tickets for 980 DKK, and I only won twice, resulting in a return of 110 DKK, which is 11% of the paid amount. This poor result was hardly a surprise, since March 6th had the lowest score (just
above zero) in the prediction curve. Anyway, the bad result for March 6th made me change my approach - the rest of the month I did not buy for more than 240 DKK on a given date. March 13th I also bought a lottery ticket, but it was not part of this experiment.
The rest of the dates in the illustration I spent 240 DKK each date including April 2nd, which was part of the wave, 5 dates all together. Altogether I spent 1200 DKK. 45% of this amount is paid out as winnings - the same as 540 DKK. How much did I win?
404 DKK. Seen from a pecuniarly perspective, the experiment was a failure.
- March 20th: One win of 71 DKK
- March 22nd: Two wins of 50 and 60 DKK
- March 30th: Two wins of 51 and 60 DKK
- March 31st: One win of 56 DKK
- April 2nd: Two wins of 56 and 60 DKK
But what about the frequency of winnings? With 1200 DKK invested, I would under normal circumstances expect to win 4 times, since there is a win for every 300 DKK invested. But I won 7 times. Seen from
a frequency perspective, the experiment was a success, since I won every 3rd time instead of winning every 5th time. This pattern - with winning every 3rd time instead of winning every 5th time - often occurred, when I used "my old lotto system", which only
consisted of electional charts - as an example shows below.
The problem is of course that the wins were too small.
