Monday Lotto Results & Odds Update – No Wins Again – 19 Mar 2012
Well, those starry ads plastered everywhere at Tatts stories proclaiming “double dividends” sure didn’t go far for this particular Tatts loser.
Yes, I got poisoned once again by advertising and false hopes. After all, through 10 Monday lotto draws in 2012 I’ve only had a return on two of their draws. So I figured, surely it’s about time I got something back. Alas it was not to be – of course it wasn’t. Even though the odds are apparently 1:53 of winning a prize.
I spent $66.45 in tonight’s draw – 2 x System 8’s, 4 x System 7’s and 38 Standard Games. Won absolutely jack squat (which is the alter-ego of the “jack pot”).
Here’s my Monday lotto results for 2012 so far – as you can see, the actual odds I’ve experienced playing Monday lotto and the returns have been absolutely pathetic. Only 24% of money spent returned in winnings, and only 1 in 204 games actually winning, despite the apparent “1 in 53” odds. Make your own mind up. Yes, this now brings my Tatts losses to over $4,600 in 2012.
