Four very fortunate lottery players were the lucky recipients of the Lotto jackpot that was identified on Wednesday, the 25th August meaning that the total jackpot, worth £1,731,568 in its undivided state was shared equally between all four players. Although the four winners are probably all thinking to themselves that they would have liked to have been the sole beneficiary of the £1,731,568 rather than being forced to share it, no doubt they are happy with the money they HAVE received.
This current batch of winners raises an interesting conundrum for the rest of us, in terms of how we should approach and interpret the results. Specifically, each of these winners managed to defeat odds of 13,983,816 in order to actually win their individual stake of the prize money. From that perspective then, each of the players should count themselves very lucky indeed that they were able to beat the odds, and get the prize.
However, on the other hand, there is also the argument that given the fact that the odds of a single person winning are set at 13,983,816, which itself is a near incomprehensible number, this surely would have meant that the chances of four people winning would have been not possible. However, that is exactly what has happened.
If any of the winners have read this article thus far and are now feeling a little dismayed with the result that they got then they should pause for a moment, calmly reflect, and appreciate one very simple, but ultimately, crucial fact indeed. Specifically, each of the winners has managed to make a very sizeable level of profit indeed, when compared to the amount of money they spent purchasing their winning lottery ticket.
Reading thus far, it will have probably become apparent to the reader that this seems to be a time for remarkable odds to be overcome where the actual chances of such an event occurring is near impossible. However, this theme is further evidenced by virtue of the fact that all of the numbers that appeared were not only within the 1-30 number range, but they were also predicted correctly. Impressed yet? The Bonus Ball was the ONLY ball which was not estimated correctly. Impressive!
This article should be adopted by optimists everywhere: good things can and do happen. All you need to do is continue being patient, and actually remain loyal to yourself and your objectives.
