Does Lottery Prediction Software Work?

Best prediction software

“OK, I don’t believe in crystal balls and stuff, but is there such a thing as lotto experts who can predict lottery numbers? There seem to be quite a few around selling software programs and they seem to know lots of complex maths that looks really useful?”

Most sellers of lottery prediction software are simply out to mislead and make money out of you. Because the reality is that nobody has ever been able to prove they can predict what numbers will or will not be drawn.

The evidence just does not exist. Lots of people seem to think it does, but none have been able to provide it..!

Why Is This The Case?

Because if lottery draws were that predictable it would be incredibly obvious to the lottery companies. And they would do something about it.

Lottery organisers spend an enormous amount of time and plenty of money on ensuring their lottery draws are random enough.

The balls and draw machines are carefully manufactured to fine tolerances, stored carefully and securely, and replaced regularly. It’s very important to lottery organisers to ensure their draws remain sufficiently random. Their income depends on it.

Wiggle Room

We are of course talking about (mostly) mechanical draw machines. So ‘sufficiently random’ is not the same thing as ‘perfectly random’.

But that’s a topic too deep for right now. Let’s just say we’re talking about tiny margins here.

So the fact remains: no lottery game has EVER been proven to be predictable enough that any prediction software works.

Which means that any dodgy seller claiming they have proven their software works, and it is therefore the best prediction software – well, let’s be charitable and just say they are misguided. 🙂 They haven’t proven anything, because no lottery game is predictable enough to prove it.

Blatant Junk Software

There are of course also prediction software sellers (just look at the reviews here) who definitely don’t sit in that ‘misguided’ category. Some just blatantly sell junk software and want your money – so please don’t give it to them!

If the sales pitch sounds too good to be true. If they are trying to tell you how they discovered some amazing secret or some mystical way of analysing the numbers that reveals special patterns. And turned it into this great software that is so easy to use… blah blah etc. C’mon, you know that’s BS. If they truly had such software, why would they be making money selling it to anyone… wouldn’t they just use it to keep winning the lottery instead..?

    I did check on different lottery systems and I noticed that most are just not good enough. Except just to give statistics at some time with numbers. I do believe that 99% of all lottery systems are just scams. What I noticed is that if one picks about 10 numbers, and use other lottery software using a full wheel, then there is a possibility to hit a jackpot but with more combinations. Other software gives full version with up to 50,000 combinations which is impossible to play because you need to use so much money in order to hit the right combinations.

    While I agree that most prediction software is a scam. After all, just look at them, they look like they were written in 1981. That being said, nothing is random in this universe. Everything, eventually follows a pattern. In reality, there is no such thing as random. Even the lottery people, with all their fine tolerances, are human and cannot make a perfectly random system. The lottery is simply a system of variables that can be predicted through pattern analysis (as long as the data is constantly updated). By design there is enough uncertainty built into the lottery that even a predicted system won’t win every game. Even math professor geniuses who are serial winners, win every five to ten years. The variables in the lottery are as follows: aged balls, aged airflow systems, new balls, new airflow systems, imperfections on balls, paint on balls, temperature, humidity. Even so, this system will follow a pattern. The trick is to analyze both historical (last 200 wins) and recent (last 25 wins) independently to compensate for the variables listed below. Then to combine these predictions in a pattern analysis algorithm to pick the most likely numbers. I wrote software that does this, but I won’t shamelessly advertise it here. BTW, my software found that in a database of the last 120 games, the numbers 42 and 60 never came up. Still think the lottery is random?

      Hi Mike,

      “In reality there’s no such thing as random”..? Hmm, maybe you’re forgetting about radioactive decay, or atmospheric noise 🙂

      But that aside.

      I agree that building a 100% perfect truly random lottery machine is practically impossible.

      But building a ‘random enough so as to be unpredictable’ lottery machine is not only possible and practical, but it’s the reality we have to contend with. Because there are far more variables than you list – have you factored in the gravitational force of the moon for example (high and low tides are created by the moon)? What about atmospheric pressure? Humidity in the studio? Variation in the electric motor spin speed? Tiny variations in the timing before each ball is drawn? Whether the guy handling the balls cleaned the marmalade from breakfast off his fingers..? 😉

      You throw all those variables together and you just end up with a draw that’s more random, not less.

      And the problem is you can never gather enough data to prove what you’re saying. You’d need millions of results to begin to detect some of these things.

      Yes, it’s theoretically possible to detect some kind of bias. But if it were big enough to prove, the lottery company would already have done something about it!

      P.S. If you don’t think a lottery can be random just because 2 numbers have not come up in 120 draws, then you don’t really understand randomness. Yes, it’s ‘unlikely’, but if it were NOT possible for this to happen then something would be wrong 🙂

    1. Predicting is not possible because there is NO PATTERN !
    2. The commercial Softwares are too light to offer ample chances to win.
    3. A heavy Software can hit the Jackpot, but the cost of betting is more than the Jackpot itself. The reason is because the LOTO Organizers grab their large share first and then distribute the remaining amount to the Winners.
    4. A self made computer Software by a Programmer, can have better chances, but no 100% guarantee !
    5. You always lose because there is NO PATTERN to follow. Those who win are only hitting COINCIDENCE that they call LUCK !

    Lottery Guy,

    My name is Shaun, I have almost lost everything, losing at pick 3, and 4. Today, is: 3/15/15. Can you please help me with tomorrow’s pick 3, and 4. For New York evening for:3/16/15. Please. I’m sick and tired of losing. P.s. I’m going to purchase your system probably tomorrow. I really appreciate you. Please, help me.

    Shaun.

      Hi Shaun

      Firstly, I don’t sell a system so it sounds like you’re confusing me with someone else – is it something in my reviews here?

      Secondly, I don’t recommend playing Pick 3/4 games at all – because you will never come out ahead playing them. The jackpots are too small, and ultimately only the lottery company really wins (see how to win pick 3…).

      Finally, if you’ve genuinely lost almost everything, the lottery is NOT the answer. You should only ever be playing with money you can afford to lose.

      Hope that helps some.

    Hey guys, do not dream. There is no way to predict any lottery winning numbers. Don’t waste your money buying any kind of magic system.
    However if you are a good programmer, you can write a program that gives you all millions of possibilities. From these millions you can eliminate 60% or more of near 0 probabilities combinations. Those near 0 probabilities are:
    – 5 consecutive numbers (e.g. 1-2-3-4-5 or 20-21-22-23-24…): probability = 0.0
    – all odd or even numbers (e.g. 7-11-23-31-45 0r 12-18-30-32-36…); there is always a mix of odd and even numbers.
    – previous drawings (a past drawing rarely repeats in life, probability: 0.000001); as far as I know the Mega Millions or PowerBall drawing has never had all 5 of the numbers repeat twice at any time on a single line.
    – all 5 numbers in the same range of 10 (2-5-6-7-9, or 30-32-35-36-39…)

    Even if you can write an App that calculates all of these things, then you still have thousands of good combinations from which you can chose 10 to play at every drawing with chance to win the jackpot within 5 years. Big probability to win small amounts every week or every month.
    If anyone is able to do so, please let me know, I will pay few bucks for it.
    Good luck!

      If only it were that simple Oli 🙂

      This is a really common fallacy, but you’re eliminating combinations for totally arbitrary reasons. What physical reason is there for 1,2,3,4,5 to be less likely to be drawn? Because it makes a pattern when you put the numbers in order..?

      It doesn’t work like that.

      What if we swapped the numbers on balls 1,2,3,4,5 with 10,19,27,33,35. Does that now make the other balls less likely to appear or still the original ones? What about if we took the numbers away altogether and just used different colours instead… See what I mean 🙂

    • Francis

      What forum can we find good computer programmers?

      • LG

        You could try Upwork or Freelancer (just bear in mind you get what you pay for – there are good and bad programmers on there). Or find a local software development company.

        Although if you’re planning to create something that follows Oli’s advice, I’d save your money 😉
