The Lottery Full System Wheel
|Hobbies : Competitions|
People have given many ways to apparently increase odds of winning on the lottery.
One of these is called the full system wheel whereby for instance with 7 numbers you enter a line with every combination of all seven.
This is said to be good as it guarantees a win if any six of seven are drawn.
What the advocates fail to realise is its actually a poor system for two reasons.
First, the number of entries increases exponentially for each extra number you wish to cover.
Secondly, as soon as a couple of your numbers don't come up, then you have lost your chance of winning across all of your lines.
However, with seven rows of different numbers, then a number may come up on three rows first off, say, leaving them all eligible for the jackpot, but on your FSW system pretty quickly every single row becomes useless!
