The RULC: Randomly Unique Lottery Combination Theory
The RULC is a macrocosmic theory for lottery numbers based on both facts and philosophical theories.
The lottery consists of a sequence of "randomly" picked up numbers. However, it is a known and well studied fact that Human Beings cannot produce "random numbers".
Facts: Numbers and the Human brain
Abstract representations of numbers in the animal and human brain (extract by By James Livingood)
There is evidence to suggest that animals, young infants and adult humans possess a biologically determined, domain-specific representation of number and of elementary arithmetic operations.
Behavioral studies in infants and animals reveal number perception, discrimination and elementary calculation abilities in non-verbal organisms. Lesion and brain-imaging studies in humans indicate that a specific neural substrate, located in the left and right intraparietal area, is associated with knowledge of numbers and their relations ('number sense').
The number domain is a prime example where strong evidence points to an evolutionary endowment of abstract domain-specific knowledge in the brain because there are parallels between number processing in animals and humans.The numerical distance effect, which refers to the finding that the ability to discriminate between two numbers improves as the numerical distance between them increases, has been demonstrated in humans and animals, as has the number size effect,which refers to the finding that for equal numerical distance,discrimination of two numbers worsens as their numerical size increases.
Cognitive Perceptions (excerpt from "Journal of Gambling Studies")
Abstract Recent studies have shown the high prevalence of youth gambling behavior. In particular, lottery ticket purchases among children and adolescents appear to be a highly preferred activity.
Despite this fact, most research has focused on the underlying erroneous cognitions used by adults when selecting lottery tickets. This study examines the cognitive perceptions of children while engaged in selecting 6/49 lottery tickets.
The use of cognitive heuristics underlying the concept of randomness and the use of significant and meaningful numbers was observed to increase as children got older. Children between 9 and 11 were found to have employed the cluster heuristic more frequently than older children, ages 12-13. The results are interpreted in terms of the cognitive developmental changes in children's perceptions and the potential implication for gambling prevention programs are provided.
Facts: Cognitive Illusion and Artificial Consciousness
Cognitive Illusions (extract by James Morrow)It is important to realise that delusions arise from a position of expectation but no knowledge. There is no "working system" for winning the lottery. Lottery numbers are a random combination, something you cannot predict. It is just a matter of time, not mathematical skills.
Myth of an Artificial Consciousness (extract by By James Livingood)A human can't pick a truly random number because of the bias of different mental faculties presented upon their creation. Someone who is more mathematically inclined may choose a larger "random number" then one who is not.
Your Question, My answer
At this point you might be asking yourself: "If winning the lottery is just a matter of chance, why have you created this site?
Answer: Although extracted numbers are theoretically picked randomly, there is a striking fact:
It has been studied that people tend to pick up the same sequences of numbers, and althought there are millions of combinations being played each week, unique combinations people play can be grouped in terms of a few thousands.
Well, if this is the case, how comes there are never more than a handful of winners each week? Why is it never that a combination being played by let's say 3000 people win the lottery in a week?
Many people have wondered and they are convinced that companies running the lottery are making sure that unique or least played combinations win, so that the top prize won't be shared through many winners and will remain high and very attractive.
How to play smart(er) (extract by Christopher Solomon)
In short, there are two golden rules, say those who have studied lottery players: Play only if you can afford it, and play only for fun.
"If you're playing because you think you're gonna get rich, then don't play," says Don Feeney, research director for the Minnesota State Lottery.
If you can safely afford to drop a sawbuck or two on the lottery, how should you do it? Experts underscore that you can't noticeably improve your odds at winning a lottery. Anyone who promises that is a charlatan. Still, there are some helpful tips to consider before you buy:
1 - Know the odds. Many people are surprised to learn that the odds in the big lotteries don't change when the number of ticket-buyers surges. Your odds of winning huge in the Powerball are 1 in 120,526,770 no matter how many people play. Likewise, the Mega Millions odds remain 1 in 135,145,920. The lesson: If you're going to throw away $5 on lottery tickets, you might want to wait until the jackpot climbs to $200 million from $10 million (although either win would be nice). One downside: A bigger jackpot means more people playing and a higher probability of having to share the prize.
2 - Be random. "The only thing you can do, really, to give yourself a slight edge -- and I'm saying really slight here -- is that you don't want to play numbers that are frequently played by other people," says Don Catlin, a retired mathematics professor, author of "The Lottery Book: The Truth Behind the Numbers" and monthly math columnist for the online magazine Casino City. "I would guess that is numbers like 7, 11, 13, 19 (the first two numbers in everyone's birth years). The reason for that is not because it's going to increase the chance of hitting, but it will slightly increase the chance that you won't have to share the jackpot." Choosing birthdates also limits your options because days and months only go up to 31 and 12, respectively -- which increases your odds of having the same numbers as other players, says Feeney of the Minnesota State Lottery. The solution: Let the "Quick Pick" computer randomly generate your numbers.
How to have a higher chance of playing a unique combination?
The RULC application follows the process below:
- 1 - You insert a combination;
- 2 - Your combination will be stored into a database;
- 3 - The Application will produce for you a unique random combination that:
- · Uses the least humanly picked numbers (Increasing the chance of getting a more "unique" combination)
- · Uses the most randomly computer generated range of numbers (Increasing the chance of getting a more "pure random" combination)
- · Uses the computer generated middle range numbers discarding the human picked middle range numbers (discarding the ones that people are more likely to pick up)
