Welcome to my Lottery Experiment
This is my blog setup to track a little experiment I am running by playing the UK National Lottery. To read about the system I'm using, and why I'm doing so, you can visit this page. Over the next 52 weeks I will be commenting on results, progress and any winnings, plus probably rambling about whatever is on my mind at the moment. I'll try keep the posts concise and entertaining though!
Well, another 6 weeks have gone by, and we are know halfway through the experiment. So, I'll take a moment and write about how things stand at the moment, and what we've learned.
1) We're still up, having spent £26 and won £30 at time of writing. Our win rate is currently 11.5%.
2) The numbers we are playing have not changed one jot since we started. The number 43 has been tantalising us with maybe moving into the top 6, but not as yet.
3) We've had 3 weeks where we've matched 3 numbers, 3 weeks where we've matched 2 numbers, 11 weeks where we've matched 1 number, and 9 weeks where we've failed to match any numbers.
4) 13 is still the least matched number. I may write about the number 13 at a later date.
So, I'm looking forward to the next half-year: let's see if we can get that win rate up!
I'll be out of the country for the next 2 draws, so have bought my tickets early, as buying tickets from outside the UK can result in you losing any winnings.
We have 1 upcoming unclaimed prize in May, and that is a EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle number - SSY424299 - from the 20th November 2012. The ticket was bought in the Taunton area, so if you can put your cider down for a second and check your old tickets, you could well be a millionaire. However, you only have until 19th May 2013 to claim it, so get cracking!
