Chance to win the lottery

Often mathematics, teaching game theory course in higher mathematics, make fun of, that the chances of being hit by a car on the way to the lottery booth are much higher, than the likelihood of winning the lottery. Thereby assuring their students not to buy lottery tickets for the last scholarship. Trying to find the answer to the mathematically difficult question of the likelihood of a huge win, one should not forget a simple truth - if everyone could win a significant amount in the lottery, then the lottery business would not flourish.

In fact, complex mathematical models of game theory are reduced to, what with the ticket price, eg, 10 hryvnia and the amount of the expected winnings 100 000 hryvnia less likely to win 1/10000. Often, asking a person to choose between winning a million hryvnia with a chance 1/100000 and 1000 hryvnia with probability 1/4, many will immediately choose a million, although from a mathematical point of view the gain 1000 hryvnia at odds 1/4 more profitable.

[edit] History

Should I buy multiple lottery tickets in one draw?? What Science Says

Many are wondering, it is better to buy one lottery ticket each game or buy a bundle of tickets once, having tested fate. Let's figure it out in this situation. for example, if you roll two dice, then the drop of numbers on each die is not related to each other (one die has no effect on the second). The totals on each die are called unrelated events.. A completely different situation with drawing cards from one deck. Pulling out one card, the probability of drawing a certain card from the remaining deck increases - the first card depends on, what cards are left in the deck (drawing cards from one deck are dependent events).

Talking about lottery games, then different lottery games are unrelated events since the balls are selected anew at each game. Ie. the chance to win one ticket in a new game will be the same and does not depend on, that you have already bought lottery tickets before. Although many in such cases rely on luck, thinking: "Well, now you will definitely be lucky. Fortune will smile at me, I already bought tickets so often ". According to the theory of probability, this does not work.

The situation is completely different when buying several lottery tickets in one game - the chances of winning the coveted combination increase proportionally, since tickets of one game are related and affect each other. therefore, acquisition 10 tickets increases your chances of winning 10 once provided, that all combinations on tickets are different.

We've looked at options for jackpot only. Calculating the chance of a small win in the lottery is much more difficult and would require more than one page, to describe the mathematical part for calculating this probability. It's easy enough here to realize, that the probability of a small win in the lottery is much higher, than for jackpot.

What the theory of probability says about the last record win in Ukraine

Let's try to calculate the probability for one of the last record breaking jackpots in Ukraine. IN 2018 year Ukrainian won 17 million 750 thousand hryvnia in "Megalot". According to the terms of the lottery, to win the "jackpot" you need to guess 6 numbers from 42 plus megaball - one digit from 0 to 9. The probability of such a win (Р) will be calculated by the formula:

P = 1 ÷ number of combinations.

The number of combinations is calculated using a complex formula with factorials. For our case, the number of combinations taking into account the mega ball is 52457860. In this way, the probability of winning at Megalot is:

P = 1 ÷ 52457860 = 0,00000001%.

It means, that only one person from 100 million can win the jackpot. The probability is very small, but a resident of the village of Ivanovka, Cherkasy region, by buying a lucky lottery ticket in the Stationery store, still won.
