Tatts Lotteries & Poor Odds – 48 Draws, 22 With Absolutely No Wins
When you start recording the exact number of games you play, the amount you spend, and the number of wins/dollars you get in return, it really becomes startling how Tatts can continue to publish supposed odds for their games, and yet the odds experienced by this particular TattsLoser is starkly different (ie. worse).
To me, this is indicative of one of three things:
1. I’m apparently a lot more “unlucky” than the average punter
In which case, there must be people out there who continually receive better odds to . How likely do you think this is? I’d love to hear from some of those people. Better still, I’d like Tatts to point them out. I’ve certainly kept every
2. That the mathematical odds represent a truly random game, and Tatts lotteries are not genuinely random
If this is the case, it is both false and misleading to represent the lotteries with a mathematical model. What I am uncertain of is at what point (ie. how much money I have to loose) to conclusively declare this.
3. That at some point the odds will even out over a reasonable period of time
In which case, I will continue to run this blog and openly share my losses and odds. Tatts – should you wish to challenge anything reported here, be advised I have kept every single ticket both winning and losing, and welcome you to challenge the results I publish in this blog.
Wednesday Lotto’s draw this week (7th March 2012) – here’s the results of what I played, lost & won:
2 x System 8s
26 x System 7s
46 x Standard Games
Total Spend: $154.95
Winnings: Division 5 x 3 (System 7) – $45.15
Net losses for Wednesday Lotto: Lost $109.80
This makes it a total of 48 Tattersalls lottery draws I’ve played in for 2012, and only one draw in which I have won more back than I have played.
Every other lottery draw I have lost more (in most cases, significantly more).
Out of the 48 lottery draws, there have been 22 draws that I’ve won absolutely nothing on. That’s over 45% of lottery draws in 2012 which have returned nothing. Making Tattersalls lotteries one of the worst options for gambling and hoping to win.
My net losses playing Tattersalls lotteries and running this blog for 2012: $4,321.64 – wasted on these pathetic lotteries. Think of how much you’re losing next time you get romanced by the pathetic advertising of coconuts on island beaches or wheelbarrows full of gold bullion.
Tatts – you suck. Your games suck. And this blog is a testament to the immoral way you peddle profit on people’s dreams.
