A Canadian Lottery Player Wins The Lottery Using An Excel Spreadsheet

1 month ago

A Canadian lottery winner claims that he discovered his victory by reviewing information on previous drawings that he gathered on an Excel spreadsheet.

A lottery winner from Ontario claims that his attention to detail and spreadsheet skills were the key to his $118,000 (US$ 87,666) Lotto 6/49 jackpot, which other people might ascribe to pure luck.

Rendall Pennie of Kirkfield has $118,000 more money after spending time determining the ideal lotto numbers to bet.

Even though his plan isn't particularly complex, it does involve gathering a lot of lottery results.

The construction worker informed the Ontario Lottery that he has been playing Lotto 6/49 ever since it was released. I compiled a spreadsheet in Excel with all the winning numbers and used statistical analysis to determine the most prevalent numbers.

Pennie might have had access to 41 years' worth of data since the 1982 introduction of Lotto 6/49.

Yet the "Winner! Gagnant!" sound that plays when a winning ticket is scanned makes all that effort and time worthwhile.

Pennie recalled, "I heard the winning jingle and I didn't believe it. As I showed my companion, her eyes widened and she said, "No way!"

Pennie has never before won a lottery jackpot of this size. He intends to make wise use of it as a father and grandfather by paying off debt, purchasing new furnishings, and investing the remaining funds.

He added, "This money is going to do so lot for me.

4, 17, 21, 22, 31, and 38, along with Bonus number 46, were the winning numbers in the Lotto 6/49 drawing on January 4. Pennie surpassed the chances of 1 in 2,330,636 by matching five normal numbers and the Bonus number, winning the game's second-tier prize.
