Tatts Milks Another $115 From Me In Wed Lotto, Now 8 Game $385 Losing Streak
Wednesday Lotto didn’t fare too well at all I’m afraid.
I played 2x System 8’s, 20 x System 7’s and 69 Standard Games, for a total spend of $115.45. Winnings: ZERO.
Putting Tattersalls lotteries odds into perspective, this makes it 8 consecutive draws across every game for the last two weeks where I haven’t won a single thing. Total purchases over this period = $384.70 without any winnings.
Of course, if you were led to believe the odds published on the Tatts site, this losing streak and not winning even a tiny division out of all those games and all those draws is extremely unlikely. Yet, here I am.
Seems nobody took home first division in last night’s Wednesday lotto. It was, incidentally, the last Lotto draw before Tatts so called “exciting game changes” for Mon & Wed lotto. These exciting changes are pretty much what we expected – a new division, and then increasing the ticket prize. There’s also some “minimum 2 division 1 $1m prizes”… Given next Mon is the first draw, I’m sure it’s entirely coincidental that nobody won Wed’s draw this week, which conveniently funds the promise prize pool for next Monday.
More soon on Powerball’s draw – I might be headed for 9 consecutive “no wins”. With this streak, my losing record will soon parallel Black Caviar’s winning record.
