PROFESSOR ILIYA BLUSKOV AND HIS OUTRAGEOUS LOTTO CLAIMS by Colin FairbrotherIn 1997 Dr Iliya Bluskov wrote his thesis titled " New Designs
and Coverings", which can be downloaded or viewed at -
http://www.collectionscanada. On page 8 and 9 of the thesis Bluskov gives an example of
playing an 80 line Lotto Wheel or Cover in a 6/49 Lotto game using a restricted set of numbers (Pool)
of 14 rather than the available 49. The Cover Bluskov uses guarantees in a hypothetical and non-existent 6/14 Lotto game that unequivocally a match-4 will be obtained, not only when all the 3003 combinations of 6 from 14 are considered or the 2002 combinations of 5 from 14 but also when the 1001 combinations of 4 from 14 are considered. What does this Cover, which can be described using the syntax C(14,6,4,4,1)=80 guarantee in a 6/49 Lotto game? The answer is a BIG FAT NOTHING! For the minimum guarantee in a 6/49 Lotto game a C(49,6,3,6)=163 is needed ie 163 lines - no ifs, no buts. The coverage for the C(14,6,4,4,1)=80 for any match in a 6/49 Lotto game is only 21.82% compared to 80 random selections using the full Pool of 49 of 78% + or - 1. However, according to Dr Iliya Bluskov it " will secure a certain guarantee".
The next paragraph introduces the reader to the Iliya Bluskov art of devious, deceitful semantics and just outright lies. The paragraph is reproduced below; let's examine it phrase by phrase. "Naturally, one can ask: What is the advantage of
playing for such a guaranteed win? If we compare playing with 80 random tickets against 80 tickets forming a (14,6,4) covering we see that the probability of a 6-win ("hitting the jackpot") is the same for each ticket; namely 14c6^-1. However, if any 4 of the numbers drawn are among the 14 numbers chosen by the syndicate, then the 80 tickets of a (14,6,4) covering guarantee at least one 4-win while 80 random tickets (on the same 14 numbers) guarantee nothing! This property of the coverings is attractive to some lottery players and there are many books (see, for example, [32] or [46]) and computer software available describing coverings. In this application, the coverings are often referred to as wheels or lottery systems." The paragraph begs the question to any rational and mildly analytical reader, "Why random selections from only 14 numbers when the example is for a 6/49 Lotto game?". Also, "Where would a normal player go to get 80 random selection lines from a Pool of only 14?" Now, knowing Iliya Bluskov and most of his tactics from the other article I started titled :- Professor Iliya Bluskov promotes deceitful claims for Lotto Covers or Wheels https://groups.google.com/ - the first accusation he will make is to accuse me of rigging the 80 random lines of 6 from 14. Well, at the bottom of this page I have embedded the reputable Randomizer.org RNG for your convenience with instructions. Let's examine this very loud sentence, "However, if any 4 of the numbers drawn are among the
14 numbers chosen by the syndicate, then the 80 tickets of a (14,6,4) covering guarantee at least one 4-win while 80 random tickets (on the same 14 numbers) guarantee nothing!" Far from being no guarantee after the draw as Iliya Bluskov states for 80 Random Selections of 6 numbers from 14, if three numbers or four are seen to be in the draw then there is a 4if6 guarantee as well as a 3if4 and consequently 3if5 and 3if6.
20 samples of 20 Random Selections from 1000 generated Random Selections using the Merzenne Twister algorithm for Pool 10 and Pick 6 showing that far from there being no guarantee as Iliya Bluskov states there is a guaranteed prize for the hypothetical 6/10 Lotto game for 4if6 and 3if4 (consequently 3if5 and 3if6 as well).
To generate 80 Random lines of Pick 6, Pool 14 -1st row enter 80 2nd row enter 6 3rd row enter 1 to 14 4th row Yes 5th row Yes After generating select copy to Excel. In Excel highlight numbers and Copy In Excel select your start cell and then Paste Special. In the Paste Special dialogue check transpose. Colin Fairbrother |
