Holding degrees from MIT and Stanford, Srivastava was never drawn to the allure of the lottery -- given the inherent propensity to lose long term. When a friend gave him a couple of cheap scratch games as a joke, he didn’t think much of it. But one of the tickets turned out to be a winner. Srivastava was intrigued.

The ultimate solution would allow him to determine a winning ticket with 90% accuracy. “The numbers themselves couldn’t have been more meaningless,” he told Wired Magazine. “But whether or not they were repeated told me nearly everything I needed to know.”

from the formula given you only need 10 $ to start.....
look for rows of three singleton numbers.....
these are the winners supposedly.
winning 9/10 tickets, would be sufficient to keep playing.
The problem would be travelling around and buying the right tickets

too bad most of the people who waste their money on the lotto in my area aren't smart enough to put this theory to use. Hell they probably think a statistician is someone who works for the church.

How exactly would you go about viewing the tickets before you purchased them. I highly doubt they would let you look through the rolls of ticks to pick the ones you thought were winners...

You may be able to predict winners but what good is it when you have no control over what ticket you receive.
