If you play one mark then the odds of winning is 1 out of 36, i.e. you have about a 3% chance of winning and a whopping 97% chance of losing.
Lotto’s odds are much worse, so at least you have a better chance of winning at Play Whe.
Even so, Play Whe is still clearly not stacked in your favor. NLCB obviously has a huge advantage. But, this is by design, we accept it and we all know this going in to the game.
However, the question “Is Play Whe rigged?” concerns whether or not the folks at NLCB manipulate the game so that for every draw they maximize their profits.
Firstly, they can’t fuck over everyone. A number must always be drawn. So, it follows that some group of people must win at every draw.
Secondly, they have all the information about what numbers people played and the amount of money people bet on those numbers. Given that information, it’s super easy to calculate how much your payout will be for any given number.
Think about that for a moment.
Before the draw, they know that if 1 plays they have to payout say $50,000. If 2 plays they have to payout say $2000. And so on and so on. Finally, if 36 plays they have to pay out $100,000.
For argument’s sake, let’s say the number 2 has the least payout.
My question to you is this.
As a business, with a history of corruption (just put NLCB and corruption into a Google search to see what I mean), would you make it so that the number 2 comes up in the draw?
If yes, then you’ve rigged the game. If no, then…
