Roll the Dice Trials
There will always be the person who is determined to win "the big one" by judiciously studying the
values of the ball numbers in previous drawings. Perhaps it's you.
There are only 36 possible arrangements of the pip values on a pair of
dice. Compare that with the 13,983,816 possible combinations in the typical
6 balls from 49 lottery game! If a Lottery game is drawn twice a week, then that's about
104 times per year. Suppose you get a list of 100 Drawn Ball sets to study, to analyze, to see if you
can determine any possible ball number or numbers that will be drawn the next time around.
The only thing you will discover is that the previous drawings resulted in random
number combinations where one (or any) drawing has absolutely no bearing whatsoever on the next
drawing! Your list, anyone's list, is veritable proof of The Law of Independent Trials.
As we have stated elsewhere, the lottery balls are as dumb as doorknobs! They lack consciousness &
conscience. They have no knowledge of what they did last drawing and they have no sense of obligation to
roll down the chute in the next drawing. Any one drawing is entirely independent of the next.
The Law of Independent Trials states that regardless of the outcome of similar previous events, the
next time the event (trial or drawing) occurs, it will be independent of the previous one. This is
true for coin flips, dice rolls, roulette wheels, and lotteries.
