They say the lightning is about four times more likely than winning the lottery. In fact, this was never the case for Stephen Mandel, the economist 14 times in the lottery prize itself. It is his story (its formula).
Its history began in the 1960s and lasted until the 1990s. Mandel grew up in the Communist era of Romania, where most of the people lived under poverty in Soviet times. Therefore, the fruit of his success has been so compelling that perhaps there are at least a number of ways to live beyond the law.
Under this scenario, Mr Mandela tried to support his wife and two children at a rate of at least $ 90 a month. When he was thrown into the towel, he found a way to escape algorithm The lottery prize guarantees you.
When he worked as an economist in the Romanian mining consortium, he came up with the idea of overcoming the lottery opportunity. Mandel tried to find a way to overcome him, so for several weeks he spent sleepless nights until he found the perfect mathematical formula that could predict five of the 6 winners. As Mandela saw, there was a lottery,he knows to leave my country«
According to the economist,correctly used mathematics can be happy"The beginning of Mandela was simple: the key to finding the way to the lottery victory was to find the three times more than the potential number of winning combinations.
Therefore, there are a total of 3,838,380 winning combinations for the lottery requiring participants from the six to select numbers from 1 to 40. According to this scenario, Mandela expects the jackpot to grow threefold.
It is reasonable to know that if the ticket cost is one dollar (Mandel and Lottery), he has won the biggest jackpot to win a ticket for each combination and double the gain. the amount of money spent on tickets.
Of course, he did not earn twice as much on this method as Mandel had to cover the overhead costs, so that the total number of winning combinations that would have to earn a jackpot would have to triple.
More extreme logistics Mandela's scheme has been complicated, even if its basic mathematical idea is simple.
After determining the lottery, a team of investors, which has a rational combination for the largest jackpot share, has invested a small amount (each a few thousand dollars each) for each of the economists.
Money from Investors Mandel prints millions of tickets (something that can be done) with each combination, and then leads them to lottery dealers who are allowed to buy and sell them.
Then, after the merger, the profit is distributed among the investors and Mandel.
For the first time, a person was criticized by a group of friends in Romania. The leisure time spent on the study of theoretical mathematics earned about $ 19,000 in revenue, allowing government officials to leave the country and begin a new life in the West.
There he jumped to the United States and Australia in the 1970s and 80s.
Of course, the plot has a lot of disadvantages. Initially, Mandel had to manually write all the combinations, which made him a mistake. The Romanian jackpot was also low: after all investors paid, only She gave him about $ 4,000.
Therefore, in general, Mandela's edges were not very large. For example, after winning in 1987, it cost more than one million, which paid investors and paid taxes, and only $ 97,000 left.
In any event, when he moved to Australia, he improved his system. In the 1980s, the development of computer technology significantly reduced the economist's entire process. Instead of filling in manually tickets, it allows them to perform their work.
Mandel was able to get a reliable team of investors when he was constantly watching the prizes that satisfy the requirements. In the 1980's, the Australia-based lottery syndicate reached 12 jackpots (the largest jackpot) and won more than 400,000 money before attracting power. then changed the lottery laws to avoid the future manipulation of the system.
Nevertheless, the economist's greatest move still needs to be done. With the support of the International Network traps In February 1992, over 27 million jackpots came to the state lottery in Virginia (USA).
The man on the ground Alex has supervised over 7 million tickets for over 100 supermarkets and service stations in Virginia. Although shopkeepers were reluctant to handle the total amount that they could handle, technically thousands of personal tickets were not illegal, so the plan was planned.
Stephen Mandel worked well and on February 16, 1992, he won the jackpot.
A huge amount of interest was prompted by government officials, and several times after the investigation, the CIA and FBI declared innocent all crimes were innocent. In the end, everything went well with luck, some maths and fieldwork. According to Mandel, "Any high school math student can count combinations«
Because of this, he has collected more than $ 15 million (over $ 5 million). It also made it difficult for investors to pay and bankruptcy. In addition, he has been involved in several investors who have been in prison for 20 months.
As a whole, Stephen Mandell has set up his own system for self-improvement and has made himself his wealth.
By the way, it is very difficult for today's researchers. After the adventures of Mandela, the U.S. authorities have changed the lottery rules that their scheme can not be enlarged. Nobody can print their tickets at home, and the number of tickets for one person is limited.
As for Mandel, he now "retired" on a small tropical island on the coast of Australia. I leave six steps to the "Mendelian formula":
1 Calculate the total number of possible combinations. (For the Lottery you must select six numbers from 1 to 40, which means 3,838,380 combinations).
2 Find the lottery where the number of combinations of jackpots can be three times higher.
3 Raise enough money to pay for each combination. (Mandela collected 2,524 investors to win the Virginia lottery).
4 Print millions of entries on each combination. (It was legal, and now you have to buy tickets right from the store).
5 Delivery of tickets to official lottery ticket dealers.
6 Do not forget to make money but do not forget to pay your investors.[LotteryCritic, The Independent]
