In a regular 6/49 lottery you must hit 6 numbers to win the Jackpot. The chances of 'guessing' the right combination of winning numbers are almost 1:14,000,000. The probability of winning the lottery Jackpot is very low. Therefore most lottery players use various wheels targeting higher number of lower-tier prices.
But what if somebody offered you 100% guarantee of finding the Jackpot winning combination, if you manage to correctly answer several Yes/No questions...
Expert Lotto does provide such a guarantee!
The application evaluates the past winning numbers and displays several line charts. If you manage to correctly estimate the trend of these lines (i.e. the line will ascend or descend in the next draw) the application will calculate a reasonably small set of combinations (tens to several hundreds) that are 100% guaranteed to include the Jackpot winning combination!
