JAMES CLEWETT: Today’s video is

going to be all about the National Lottery. And if you’re a number freak

like me, then the National Lottery is great because it’s

that two times a week when all the people at home get

to share in my enthusiasm for numbers. So what I want to do today is

talk a little bit about some of the probabilities involved

in the National lottery. So before we start, I think we

should choose some numbers for our lottery. So our first number is going

to be the number 14. That’s my birthday. Then I think we’ll have

the number 19. That was a nice, good year

for me, 19 years old. We’ll have a few in the 30s– 31, and 33, and 34. OK, and then one more, 45. So I’ve chosen the number 14

for my birthday, the number 19, and then, a few in the 30s,

number 31, 33, and 34, and number 45. So now, what are the odds of

us picking those same six balls out of our homemade

lottery kit? First of all, to start with,

there are six balls in here which are winners for us. And there are 49 balls

just like the national lottery game. OK, so I’m going to look away. And I’m going to select. And it’s number 19,

a 6 out of 49. OK, so we put that

one to one side. But now they’re only 48 balls

left in the basket. And we’ve got five winners

left in the box. OK, let me give that

a good stir around. And it’s the number 45. Put that one to one side, and

again, now, we’ve got one less ball in the box. So we’re down to 47 balls and

just four winners now. Give them a good stir. It’s the number 31. And that one, again, goes to

one side with our other winning balls. Just 46 balls left in here

now, and only 3 winners. There it is. The number 14. OK, again, put that

one on one side. Give ourselves a little stir. Now there’s only 45 balls left

and just two winners. There it is. The number 33. OK, so we’ve got one winning

ball left in the bucket. So give it a stir. There it is. The number 34. OK, so my chances of picking out

the number 34, were just 1 from 44 balls. And there we have it. What were the odds of me

winning the lottery and retiring to become a part-time

physicist? Well, let’s have a look at it. The chance of getting the first

number was 6 in 49. Then it’s a completely

independent event, so we can just multiply that by the chance

of getting the second number, which is 5 in 48. So I can just just

multiply that. Then we multiply that

by the chance of winning the third number– the top line we can

do in our head– is simply 720. The bottom line– I’m going to cheat– I’m going to use a calculator. 49 times by 48 times by

47 times by 46 times by 45 times by 44. And that’s the number 10

billion and change. So we’re going to write down

our 10 billion here. So that gives us our final

answer in math speak, if you like, of 7.151 times

10 to the minus 8. That number doesn’t really mean

anything to most of us. And so I’m going to write

this as 1 over 13983816. So the odds of winning the

lottery are one part in 13,983,816. Or in real money, about one

part in 14 million. I play the lottery

at Christmas. Actually, I find it’s been

really good fun. So I tend to spend

about a fiver a year on lottery numbers. And for that one week that

I’ve bought a ticket, I daydream about all the really

cool things that I’m going to do if I win the lottery. So how much is that worth? I don’t know. I really enjoy it. I really enjoy just

the process of owning a lottery ticket. But I know– I’m reasonably numerically

grounded– I know that my chances

of winning are very, very close to zero. I think my chances of being

struck by lightning are something like seven times

higher than my chances of winning the lottery. So I’m kind of hoping

that doesn’t happen. So we’ve won the lottery. We’ve matched six balls. That’s absolutely fantastic. But it doesn’t really explain

why every time I’ve bought a lottery ticket, I’ve not matched

any balls at all. So what’s the probability of

buying a lottery ticket and matching no balls? So let’s go back to the numbers

that we selected. So we had 14– OK, so this were our

magic numbers. So what are the odds of

selecting a first number which doesn’t match? Well, there are 43 balls

in there, out of 49 which don’t match. So I’m going to select one. It’s number 38. OK, so that doesn’t match. I don’t want that one. Give it a stir. Now remember, here we go. That’s the number 35. And, again, it doesn’t match. Give them a stir. It’s the number 25. Again, no use to me. 41 out of 47. OK, so the next one. Number 23. Getting a little annoyed

with this. That’s no good to me either. So the chance of pulling

out a nonwinner there were 40 out of 46. OK. Do another one. I’ve got the number 41. No use. OK. So the chances, again– 39 out of 45. And our last ball– BRADY HARAN: Hang on, what do

you think it’s going to be? JAMES CLEWETT: Well,

I don’t think it’s going to be a winner. That’s for sure. Uh, give it a stir. I hope it’s not a winner. Number 43. OK, so we’ve got no

balls at all. Rubbish. Right. The chances of a nonmatch– 38 out of 44. If we calculate this number

through– again I’m going to turn to my calculator. OK? So our probability of picking

no matches whatsoever is 4 billion divided by 10

billion, which is– sorry– 43%, 43.59649%. Somebody is spending a pound

a week playing the lottery. And for that pound a week,

they’re getting hope and excitement and a Saturday

night buzz. I think that’s great

value to be honest. So that’s fine. But if I hear of somebody who’s

spending 10, 20 quid a week buying lottery

tickets, stop. Please stop.

Lottery ticket winners are upon luck and fate I do belive so nothing else

It was me

I've only gotten 3/6 numbers right when choosing my own numbers a couple times now and I've only been playing a few months.

If the Jackpot is higher than ~14.000.000 € than you should go and Fill out 14 million lottery Ticket with every possible combination.. 100% Chance of winning!

USA LOTTO NICE

The person who buys a ticket has a little bit better chance of winning than a person who doesn't buy a ticket. I know people who spend 300/month on tickets.

Then, why didn t you win the last lotto????!

The chances for the winner are 100%. The chances for the loser are 0%. The chance of winning or loseung is 50%. You either a winner or a loser for the jackpot. This is rubbish

Ok I am going to make Your life's easy. The lottorie does not work the way you all belive.

Every combination of number's that the computer recieve, the computer program eliminate (is a simple task for computer to do).

No under people often say " the numbers I forgot to put in come up) of course they did the computer did Not recieved it.

Now You know Why existe roll over special every Christman's.

they should make a lottery where you win if you dont match the numbers!!!

'Soooooo you're telling me there's a chance?'

thanks, but like they say you cant win if you dont play.

its just joke dont take serious

Contact me if you are interested in pick 3 or 5. I have studyed it for a long time and have invented a great method.

Huh??

I don't believe on lottery. The winning numbers are prepared in advance with computer, specially lottery Canada OLG

Cheers for this, been searching for "the inverted lottery system" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about – Zenulian Lottify Bonkers – (do a google search ) ? Ive heard some incredible things about it and my cousin got cool results with it.

If that's true maybe that guy is the most richest right?

his calculations was based on a combination of numbers where it should be a permutation the difference being in a combination the order matters in a permutation it does not so unless lotto is played that the order you have has to match the order they are drawn so his answer should be divided by 6x5x4x3x2x1=720 which changes the odds of a combination of 6 numbers to a permutation

Ótima análise . Calculo simples porém ..poderoso ..rs. ( Great analysis, simple calculation though, powerful !!)

Did you ever won one?

WHAT?

When you buy every possible combo and 'win' a little compared to the huge loss

If casino Dealers are forbidden to play on the casino, is ONLY fair for mathmaticians to BE forbidden to play the lottery.

This needs an update.

The odds now are 1/45057474.

59!÷(59-6)!÷6!=45057474.

Hi .nice this lottery i want to try also..hope i can win

I am attracted to him 😅

What the point of this video if he himself is not a lottory jackpot winner?

I Truly Have a Gifted With Predicting

Deberían traducirse en español

This is the reason I play ONLY one set of numbers per drawing. Makes no sense to play more, it does not change the odds of winning by much but to win, one has to be entered.

Quer namorar comigo?

Winning the Lottery is not just a out the odds. It's about "Law Of Attraction!"

Do you really believe that you deserve to win the Lottery? It's the "Law Of Attraction" that is the real message here.

The last ball drawn was not the number 34 as was said, but the number 36!

Basically the number of chances that you write is not correct using the numbers you write … Not those on the calculator that are more exact. So with the numbers you show on the bord the chances are 1 in 13.984.058

why is the camera shaking and moving non stop , torture watching this video , bad cameraman .

Useless video

Luck -10 haha

So next time when I got hit by a lightning I have six times more to go before winning a lottery

You owe me big time

Winner of a video, I've been looking for "lona lottery software" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you ever come across – Zenulian Lottify Bonkers – (do a google search ) ? Ive heard some decent things about it and my m8 got cool results with it.

I had a friend who was a policeman, he said scratchoffs have a system…..he was always winning.

"You said one out of 14 million yeah? Tell me this is it."

"If I tell you what happens, it won't happen"

Brits…..

Your chances of winning are like everyone else’s: nil.

Nice edited video. Record the ball picking first then edit so it looks like you picked the numbers before hand

But somebody has to win ,if you play you are in with a chance be in it to win it.

Fake fake fake fake fake fake…
