How to win the Lottery – TattsLotto Statistics – Frequency – Pairs – Triplets

Are always lots of lotteries offering big prizes around us.
But how can we win these big prices?

I always had an eye on them and tried to understand more about numbers and their statistics.

Nobody has the absolute answer and nobody can guess the lottery numbers, but is absolutely verified that checking the previously drawn numbers and calculating statistics you can improve your chances to win the lottery.

I won’t give you any crystal ball, but I will try to post here relevant statistics that could help you win. I will start with Saturday Lotto / Tatts Lotto and based on feedback that I get from readers this post could evolve and become an independent page or even a whole nine yards website…. who knows?

Where can you find the raw data? 
Few Aussie official lottery sites don’t publish anymore the whole past draws, but you still can find them on Lottery West and Tatts websites:

What can we do with all these numbers?
What I normally calculate is the frequency, pairs, triplets, quartets, draws sum and then group the numbers in four different categories ‘hot’, ‘cold’, ‘due’ and ‘previous’.

‘hot’ - numbers drawn in the last 10 draws, but not the last draw
‘cold’ – numbers having a lower overall frequency and  not drawn in the last 10 draws
‘due’ -  numbers having a higher overall frequency and  not drawn in the last 10 draws
‘previous’ - numbers drawn in the last draw

All these stuff can help filter out the numbers which are unlikely to be drawn in the next draw.

How exactly?
For all past draws I have calculated  frequency, pairs, triplets, quartets, draws sum and then group the numbers in four different categories ‘hot’, ‘cold’, ‘due’ and ‘previous’….. so I could see a pattern:
About 66% of drawn numbers are ‘hot’ number
About 15% of drawn numbers are ‘cold’ numbers
About 6% of drawn numbers are ‘due’ numbers
About 13% of drawn numbers are ‘previous’ numbers

This pattern is almost the same, over time…..draw after draw, since ’86.

So, what can you do?
If you play 6 number, play 4 x ‘hot’, 1 x ‘cold’, 1 x ‘previous’ by example….less numbers to choose from, more chances to win.

If you want to increase the chances to win a price (not necessarily the big one), play 6 or 7 or 8 ‘hot’ numbers…

Let’s see some updated Tattslotto statistics – just created this database:

I will update it weekly for Tatts Lotto and please comment – if you are interested in other lotteries – let me know and I will create few other on line lotto statistics databases.

Helstrom is a survival multiplayer server. Our server was first made in Decemeber 2011 (it was called randomcraft back then). It was a private server where we had a town and several other buildings. In July 2012, we wanted to make it public and have regular players and all the other benefits from a public server. After being open for several months with very little traffic we decided to close down.

In March 2014 we reopened with high hopes. Since then we’ve earned more donations and more popularity then previously. We’ve gotten heaps of donations and players.

Sony Xperia Z1 Screen easily picks up scratches

Got this new gorgeous phone Sony Xperia Z1 and it looks and feels amazing.
It has premium looks and premium hardware spec.

Sony advertise the phone as:

Then why my phone looks like a 3 years old, scratched phone after 2 weeks of light use?

The truth is Sony use scratch resistant glass, which is tough and good quality, but this glass is covered with ASF – Anti Shatter Film – which is absolutely low quality and catches scratches just rubbing your nails on it.
So, what can be done?
Looks like the only sensible thing to do is to change the AFS layer by yourself, coz telcos and Sony give you BS only.
Maybe once they get more similar complains they will treat the problem differently.

Removing the ASF you will loose the Sony logo, which is baked into this screen protector rather than etched onto the glass.
And also voids the warranty, they say….which is harsh and unfair having in mind that their ASF layer is faulty and low quality.

If your Xperia Z1 is not scratched yet you should hurry and buy a screen protector that probably is better and will last longer than the original ASF layer.

If your phone is scratched already, here are some good tips on how to remove the ASF without creating more damage to your phone.

Hope it helps to keep your Xperia Z1 scratch free, as it should be.


Behind the scene – backlinks report – Alexa top 5 to 10 websites – Wikipedia, QQ, LinkedIn, Windows Live,Twitter

Top 5-10 websites on the web  – lets have a look at next 5 websites that top the web.

6. Wikipedia
7. QQ
10. Twitter

As you can see Amazon was kicked out from Top 10. Would be interesting to see why?

Social Media


So, why did Alexa kicked out Amazon from Top 10?

Twitter is better at Social Media Chapter, I guess, not Google+ though:

Backlinks are telling quite the same story Twitter wins by far!

One parameter from here…is very much liked by Google (and Alexa) and can swap the position of these sites at any time in the Top, with minimum variation.

Which one will be?
Your Answers below….


Well, dummy words have no search or competition on the WEB. Let’s write NickSoftware reversed erawtfoskcin and see how quick Google index it and how this mini article will rank in SERP.

My guess, in two minutes, it will be ranking page 1 in SERP for keyword erawtfoskcin.

OK, let’s count.

Got number one in SERP in two days.

Behind the scene – backlinks report – Alexa top 5 websites – Google, Facebook, Youtube, Yahoo, Baidu

Top 5 websites on the web  – everybody would like to get there, but for now the privilege is still within big boys reach only.

As per Alexa Top Sites the TOP 5 websites on the web is:

We all know how these sites look like and what they offer.
Also we know that they are very popular among us, and we ALL use them daily, more or less.

But, what’s behind the scene? 
What’s the domain comparison between these “.com(s)”? 
Why are in top 5, besides their obvious impeccable content and attraction to us? 
Why is Google number one and Facebook number two?

Social Media 

Google is mentioned 3mil+ times in Google+, when Facebook has only 22K links in Google+, Youtube is a champion in Google+ with 7mil+ links and then Yahoo has 100K+ and Baidu about 3K.

On Twitter Facebook is the leader of the pack with 52K links followed by Youtube with 17K, Google and Baidu with 7K and Yahoo with few hundreds…

FLikes – of course Facebook leads the pack again with about 3.5mil, Google and Youtube follow with about 1mil+ and the other guys are below a mil.

FShares – Google has more than Facebook!!! – but both are close together at 4.2mil+ with Youtube coming next at 3mil and Yahoo at 900K and Baidu at 9K…

How many links the top 5 have?
Answer is lots….

Facebook – 7.7 billions 
Youtube – 3 billions
Google – 1.9 billions
Baidu – 240 millions
Yahoo – 39 millions

What’s their backlinks profile?

How many referring domains do they have?

So, why Google is first?
I think, because Facebook doesn’t have a search engine yet and Yahoo is all about rich content, Youtube is in no aggression pact area and Baidu is a non english search engine….

Will it change in the near future?
Can’t see any big challenger coming from outside top 5:
7. QQ
10. Amazon

But for sure I would like to see how top 5 will unfold once Facebook enters a bit more seriously in the search engine market.

What’s your view…
