Tattslotto Odds of Winning – Real Player Odds Shown in Stats

Really couldn’t expect anything more, but in last night’s Saturday Tattslotto draw I did of course come out the loser once again. Having laid out $332.90 for the hope of having at least a shimmer of my dreams come true, I did manage an unusual return ($190). Unusual in the sense that I typically get nothing or next to nothing, so whilst it took the edge of the disappointment I did ultimately end up losing $142.90.

In fact, every single draw this year has except one has seen me lose more money than I put on. The odds are pathetic enough when you consider them as published, but when you consistently receive significantly less than that it makes you wonder – how many other people out there are falling far short of the purported odds, and what does this mean in terms of the fairness of the games themselves?

Starting with this post, I’m going to publish the ongoing losses both $ and # games, plus some simple calculations showing how my experience playing these games fares compared to suggestions made on the Tattersalls website.

Here’s my Saturday Tattslotto run-down:
