Do you know that maths can explain everything?

From science to languages, there is always a mathematical logic to everything. In fact, without maths, you won’t be reading this because even codes are considered maths (kind of).

And maths, too, can determine whether you can win this year’s Hong Bao Draw and be $12 million richer.

But before anything, here’s how to confirm-plus-chop win, and to show you the logic behind the maths.

Here’s how to SURE-WIN

You see, the odds of winning, if you select six digits between 1 and 49, is 1 in 14 million.

So that means if you buy ALL the 14 million combinations, you’ll surely win.

But here’s the problem: an ordinary bet costs $1. So you need to spend $14 million to win $12 million. And the prize money might be shared among a few people, so that means…

But you still win. Life’s all about winning, right? Just like how some businesses make losses every year yet still look like they’re winning #justsaying

Expert’s Take

I can’t resist doing some research on this, and here’re what the experts have said.

In a 2016 TNP article, a statistician from NUS, Prof Chua Tin Chiu, has this to say: “Essentially, the only way to ensure you win is to buy all possible 14 million combinations…If I knew a strategy that would really let me win, I would be a professional gambler and not a professor.”

Pretty sure he’s one prof that have a full house in all his lectures.
