Note: For those of you that are following my progress closely, you’ll have noted that i have played the same numbers each week thus far. Why so? Well, for 2 very silly reasons:
1) The idea of “luck”. I assume most gamblers, even if not serious, will apportion at least some of their success/failure to Lady Luck. This being the case, i chose to play the only numbers that have ever won me something on the National Lottery. Yes, once upon a time the line 06, 09, 16, 23, 27, 32 bagged me £10.
2) “Sod’s law”. Having now played the same numbers more than once i have fallen into a superstitious trap. That is to say, if i choose not to play these numbers one week, by the law of the sod, they will be the numbers drawn at National Lottery HQ.
I can clearly see that these are irrational beliefs but, for the time being at least, i’m compelled to abide by them.
