Tatts: The lottery that always pays?

Tatts has a monopoly on Australian lotteries, but will its wagering business bring it down?

Online lottery ticket seller OzLotteries has some advice for hopeful customers: "Experienced lotto players use various techniques in order to improve their chance of getting a prize … Although every single number is randomly drawn, there are certain numbers which appear more often than others, known as ‘hot numbers’."

A more useful bit of guidance would be that buying a Powerball ticket gives you a 1 in 77 million chance of winning the jackpot – which is only slightly less likely than you being killed by an asteroid impact this year.
