The better to buy tickets online?
How many tickets do you need to buy, to be guaranteed to win the Russian Lotto?
As you know, the probability of winning in the Russian Lotto is quite predictable, as mathematically, and statistically. And if not everyone is strong in mathematics and probability theory, then the purely statistical probability is quite easy to check, and from it it is easy to understand how many tickets you need to buy for a guaranteed win in the Russian Lotto.
Let's take game statistics for any lottery draw. To do this, on the stoloto website, open the "Russian Lotto" lottery and click on the link "Draws archive". Let's open for example the result of the drawing of the draw №1309 from 10 November 2019 of the year, in which in the bag at the end of the game there was 3 barrel. You can see the full version of statistics on the site yourself, here I have reduced the picture for clarity. In this data, we are interested in two numbers – how many tickets were sold in total and how many of them won. Moreover, the number of winning tickets will have to be calculated by ourselves., adding up all the tickets for each game round, but it's not that hard.
The results of this game show, that everything took part in it 2 045 701 ticket, but only won 577 405. By simply dividing one number by another, we get, that the probability of winning is 1 to 3,54. In this way, if you buy 4 ticket, then you are likely 99,9% win anything. Although, if you are a special "lucky" then there is little chance, that none of your tickets will win anything there, as well as there is an even lower probability, that all four tickets will win at once, it will depend on the specific cards you choose.
I will note again, that the statistics above refer to circulation, in which at the end of the game remains 3 barrel. However, in most runs, by the end of the 4, in them, of course, the probability of winning is slightly less. And finally, there are circulations, where at the end of the game only 2 barrel, in them the probability of winning is 1 to 2,25. That is, it is enough to buy in them 3 ticket, to win at least something. These are usually festive editions., which I already mentioned a little above and it was in them that I recommended to participate. These circulations include the so-called "New Year's Billion", circulation No. 1316, which will be held 1 january 2020 of the year.
Thus, it is easy to calculate the minimum number of tickets to win, and now you yourself can calculate it for all types of draws and even lotteries..
