Saturday Tattslotto – 4th Feb 2012 – $262.20 On the Line
Just tallied up my tickets for tonight’s draw. Here’s the breakdown:
2 x System 8, 30 x System 7 and 134 Standard games. Total “investment”: $262.20
So far, for 2012, my net position playing Tattersalls lotteries is a loss of $2,183.78
The biggest sources of these losses are:
Powerball – $1,322.83 lost in 2012
Saturday Lotto – $796.40 lost in 2012
Given I’m playing the same core set of numbers (around $165 worth) in Saturday lotto every week for the last five years, and the current losing streak, apparently the odds say I am due to win something reasonable this evening to help balance it out. We’ll see.
If you’re a regular player who puts on $40 or $50 a week playing Tatts, and have discounted the fact you haven’t won to the odds and that you only play a little, think again – my running blog here is testament to the fact the published odds are far from realistic.
Wish me luck hey?
