Artificial Intelligence and the Christmas Lottery

Spaniards have been buying Christmas lottery tickets for months in the hope of winning the Christmas lottery jackpot that is coming soon. Normally, people choose a number that looks nice or a date that is special, but can artificial intelligence guess the numbers that are most likely to win? How do lottery algorithms work? Can you use algorithms to predict lottery numbers?

In other blog posts we have discussed how artificial intelligence improves our daily lives and how it makes our spelling and grammar checker work. New technologies are the order of the day, even in events that we had always considered completely traditional.

Discover today with iScribo how artificial intelligence and the luck factor can make you dream on a day with more than two hundred years of tradition.

What is the Christmas Lottery in Spain?

It is actually called the Sorteo Extraordinario de Navidad and is what unofficially marks the start of Christmas in Spain.

The most exciting time of the year starts on 22 December every year in Madrid. The “gordo” – which is what the main prize is called, and yeah it means “the fat one” as an appreciative nickname, is four million euros to be shared out among those lucky enough to have the winning number, i.e. for every euro you bet, you would win an extra twenty thousand. There are a number of secondary prizes that are not bad either and could make every person very happy.

I don’t know anyone from Spain who doesn’t play at least one decimo, which is the lottery ticket. It is also very common to look forward to the long-awaited Christmas lottery advertisement a few weeks before the big day.

Artificial Intelligence Lottery Analysis

The Christmas lottery is a game of chance and, like all games of chance, it is based on statistics and algorithms through the study of big data.

Are artificial intelligence lottery predictions a real thing? We are sorry to say no, it is mostly a matter of luck. However, artificial intelligence is used to make patterns of users, which numbers tend to sell out first, in which months we prefer to buy and which number endings are most likely to be drawn. Not to mention that it is also used to connect all the lottery sales administrations on the day of the draw.

We’ll tell you where artificial intelligence works wonders: in sports. The macro data of each athlete helps us to draw a fairly reliable trend. Therefore, artificial intelligence is used in other types of lotteries such as sports results.

How can Artificial Intelligence Help Us?

We have already seen that it is impossible for artificial intelligence to tell us which numbers to choose to win the lottery, but we can benefit from it for other things. After all, the lottery is advertised as the most exciting day of the year, where the main objective is to share if you win the prize. Nice values, isn’t it?

For example, artificial intelligence reduces the risk of fraud in games of chance. Applied to the Christmas lottery, it means that the ball of the draw has the same dimensions and weighs the same, so it is very difficult for someone to take advantage of a failed ball to win the draw. These tedious processes used to be manual and consumed a lot of resources; nowadays it is done in a faster way thanks to the use of new technologies.
