Fascinated by math, accounting technician Guilhermino Ferreira, 41, used to play at least one lottery sambad every week. The numbers chosen were random: a family member’s birthday, friends’ license plate, someone’s phone number. But I never made anything at all. One day, he decided to stop “throwing money away,” as he says and began to study how his chances in the game could be increased. The result: it guarantees to have won over 70 times since then.
Pernambucano, Ferreira works today as a researcher for national and international lottery sambad has a published book and runs a website dedicated to the theme. In addition, it provides consultant services to players from countries around the world, such as Spain, the United Kingdom, Germany, the United States, Australia, Belgium, Portugal, and Japan.
“Mathematics is an exact science and it can help the gambler. Relying on luck is not a good deal. I believe luck can be ‘improved’. For me, in a lottery sambad, 45% is investment, 45% is strategy and 10% is luck, ”he said in an interview with Terra.
Expert guidance is for any type of lottery sambad, including Mega-Sena, Quina, Lotofácil, Timemania, Lotomania, Duo-Sena and Loteca. But pay attention to the main tip: even with methods, studies and suggestions, there is no guarantee of victory, so never invest money that will be missed. “I play often myself, but at most $ 100 a week. The lottery sambad should always be regarded as entertainment. You should not play high, play little money, but use the right dozens based on statistical data, ”he said.
According to him, his premiums are around R $ 150 thousand. He has already grossed with Mega-Sena corners, Virada Mega-Sena courts and Lotofácil “14 points” hits. The Seine, the country’s top prize, however, never came out on their cards. “Winning the top prize is no easy task. I never hit Sena because I was never so lucky and I never invested too much. But there are calculations for those who want and have the resources to try, ”he said.
Anyway, the tips
In the book The lottery sambad Handbook, Ferreira’s tips are geared specifically to Mega-Sena but can be adapted to other lottery sambad as well. Initially, the expert shows results from a survey in which he found dozens of high frequency (which have been drawn repeatedly) and low frequency (which were not drawn often). The ideal game, he said, has at least two or three dozen from the first group. They are: 04, 05, 07, 12, 13, 16, 17, 23, 24, 29, 30, 32, 33, 37, 38, 41, 42, 43, 47, 49, 50, 51, 53, 54 , 58 and 59.
The author informed that one should not play in numbers followed or numbers that are in the same column (vertically). In addition, it states that you must bet on the same number of odd and even tens and separate the card into four quadrants, always selecting dozens of different quadrants.
Afterward, Ferreira enters one of the most covered subjects in the publication: the concepts of closing and unfolding. He explains that they are used when the player bets with more than six numbers – he advises at least ten – spending as little as possible and increasing the chances of winning. “lottery sambad closing is a grouping of a certain number of numbers that guarantees a minimum price if certain conditions are met,” he said. According to the expert, it is possible, for example, to play ten numbers in the Mega-Sena and guarantee at least the court by hitting five of those numbers. The accounts are made using spreadsheets based on probability theories.
But calm down!
Yes, we have already talked about it, but we have to get back to the point: there is no guarantee of winning the lottery sambad, so never bet money that you will need. It’s never too much to remember that the odds of you winning at Mega-Sena with a normal six-number game are only one in 50,063,860. In Quina and Lotofácil, considered more “simple”, the probability drops (but remains high): one in 24,040,016 and one in 3,268,760, respectively.
