What lottery really to win: Gosloto VS Foreign?

Getting a winning ticket isn't the only problem, for the lottery participant

It is very important to pay attention to the organizer himself, transparency of the drawing, payment guarantee, honesty and reliability

For these purposes, it is necessary to compare domestic and foreign organizers.

Should you trust our organizers?

It is impossible to give a definite answer to this question., but I know some information, which is in the public domain, you can draw your own conclusions:

  • despite, that state lotteries position themselves in this way, actually, they have one specific owner;
  • all draws, which are shown on TV, are not broadcast in real time, and in the record;
  • the organizers have all the information regarding the selected combinations of numbers, so there is no guarantee, that they won't use it for their own purposes.

Among other things, there are several more reasons, by which the credibility of state lotto could be undermined:

  • during the draws on the official portals, almost all lotteries do not provide real-time broadcast. Instead of online draws, they use a random number generator;
  • on the Internet you can find a large number of negative reviews and comments from real participants, who have had problems with paying or receiving a prize. Sometimes a winning ticket simply disappeared from the personal account of the official website, like the whole story about buying it;
  • in fact, the Stoloto portal is a monopolist, since all popular lotteries are offered only to them, and "non-state" lotos are prohibited by law;
  • no information about the winners, and the organizers themselves explain this by the personal safety of the participants, that you won a big prize.

Should you trust foreign organizers?

Treat all foreign online lotteries as a whole, is not objective. This is due to the, that there are a lot of such lotteries and each organizer holds draws in accordance with its own rules and regulations. But if you take only the most famous and popular, compared with domestic, they look more advantageous, due to its transparency:

  • many donate a large percentage of their profits to the state treasury or various charitable foundations, therefore buying such a ticket, the participant is indirectly involved in good deeds;
  • draws are broadcast in real time, what says about honesty.

Advantages and disadvantages of US lotteries

There are advantages and disadvantages to playing the American lottery. They should be studied, before deciding to take part in the draws.

Benefits:

Huge prize pools are the most important and obvious advantage of American lotteries. None of the CIS lotteries can boast of jackpots of several hundred million dollars.
Winnings are paid in dollars. Even if you fail to win the grand prize, but you will be able to guess at least a few numbers from the combination, then you can well count on a fairly generous, as by local standards, payment in 5-10 one thousand dollars.
The ability to play online. You don't have to go to the States, to take part in the next lottery drawing. You can buy a ticket online, and already in case of victory, you will need to come to the USA to receive the winnings.
High level of organization

US lottery draws are receiving close attention. By participating in US lotteries, you can be sure of the fairness of the draws and the guarantee of prize payments.

American lotteries and disadvantages are not without. There are not many of them, but residents of other countries should be aware of all the difficulties, they may face. for example, playing with lottery agents, you need to make sure they are honest. There is a risk, what if you manage to hit a really big jackpot, the lottery agent would rather hide with your money.

Remember, there is a fairly large tax on winning American lotteries. If you win big money and want to collect it in one check, you will have to donate about 60% prize amounts.

Worth saying, that American citizens don't like much, when foreigners win big prizes. If big prizes leave the country, citizens begin to write massive complaints to the authorities. No one wants to give huge capital to another country, but how much this can affect the difficulty of obtaining a prize, one can only guess.

What lottery to play?

Further will be presented 6 the most significant factors, based on which it is necessary to make decisions for choosing a lottery:

Lottery ticket price

The cost of one lottery ticket is one of the most significant factors in increasing the chances of winning.. Really, Let's take a look at one of the most common lottery formats – "6 out of 45". The chance of winning the jackpot with this game format is 1 to 8.145.060. In this case, the cost of the Australian Monday Lotto is 1,10$ and the cost is Austrian Lotto 3,30$. In other words, you can purchase one Austrian Lotto ticket, or 3 Australian Monday Lotto ticket, thereby increasing your chances of winning in 3 times. And then your chances of winning the jackpot will be 1 to 2.715.020. I think, you get the gist.

Jackpot Winning Odds

Next, we will analyze such a factor as "The probability of winning the jackpot". It directly depends on the format of that lottery, which you chose. And at the moment there are a lot of them.. There are all known "6 out of 45" or "7 out of 49", but there are exotic, such as "5 of 60 + 1 of 4 ". To make it clear, what I'm talking about, we will take two lotteries again, in which the size of the jackpot today is approximately equal and is 330 million rubles. The first – Canadian Lotto 649 (6 out of 49 game format) with odds of winning a jackpot 1 to 13.983.816. The second – German Lotto (the format of the game "6 of 49 + 1 of 10 ") with odds of winning a jackpot 1 to 125.854.344. In this case, the jackpot is the same, but so that the chances of winning are equal, need to purchase 9 German Lotto tickets and everything 1 Canadian Lotto ticket 649. I think, here everything became immediately clear.

Jackpot size

Now let's dwell on such a factor as "Jackpot size". This value depends not only on the lottery, but also from the drawing in each lottery. Since there are games with a fixed top prize, but there is a funded system. In the second case, the value of the jackpot grows from drawing to drawing., on condition, that in the last draw, the coveted prize was not raffled. As usual, for example, we will take two lotteries. I want to notice right away, that the cost of these lotteries will be the same and at the moment is 5,45$. The first – French Loto, the jackpot of which for the next draw is 3 million euros. The second – Spanish EuroMillions, the main prize of which for the next draw 25 million euros. Probably, everything is clear here.

Optimal lottery range (OLR)

In this paragraph, we will not consider any factors. We will summarize 3 above listed. You, probably, noticed, that at the end of each paragraph there is a conclusion, which begins with the phrase "All other things being equal ..." But often these other conditions are not equal, but a choice must be made. For this, such an indicator was created (coefficient) как Optimal lottery range. OLR (optimal lottery range) – coefficient, showing the effectiveness of the lottery. Calculated by the jackpot, the cost of the ticket and the probability of winning the jackpot. On the page listing all lotteries – lotteries online, this indicator is calculated for each lottery for the current draw. Now it's very easy to choose a lottery. For example, let's take two lotteries again.. The first will be – Spanish La Primitiva, with OLR equal to 111,455. And the second – Italian SuperStar, whose OLR is 0,004. Let me remind you, this is data on 29 july 2015 of the year. The indicator changes every day, from draw to draw. As an example, the "best" and "worst" lotteries were naturally chosen. so, why is there such a huge difference, everything is very simple. Jackpot size: The primitive – 64 500 000 euros, SuperStar – 8 200 000 euros; ticket price: The primitive – 2,75$, SuperStar – 2,75$; chance at jackpot: The primitive – 1 to 13.983.816, SuperStar – 1 to 56.035.316.700. I think, now everything has become very clear.

Combo bets

This type of game has just appeared on the Internet. And the pioneer of course was thelotter. Soon I will devote a separate article to combo bets, to describe in detail all the pros. Now only one thing needs to be noted., combo bets combine two types of games: single player and syndicate play. That is, you buy a so-called "package" consisting of individual tickets and shares in one or several syndicates.. At the same time you save, since thelotter offers a discount on such a "package" in contrast, if you bought everything separately. I think, that the prospects for combo bets are very high. Since they combine the ability for a person to single-handedly have a win, and the opportunity to increase your chances of winning as part of a syndicate.
