# how to lose

gsc5

I am playing p/3 straight, 100 numbers each day for 10 days.  There can be no duplicates on any one day.

Now my question is:  How would you play so there would be no wins?

you can't.  you might be unlucky  and manage it but no guarantee. if you could be sure of loseing you could also be sure of winning.

Why would you bet on losing?

I definitely don't get this one.

Methinks that he is trying to figure out how to lose so that he can do the opposite and win...

If you playing p/3 straight, there are 1000 possible combinations and you're playing only 100 of them so your chances of losing every day are 1000:100.  You can't ask for better odds if you're really interested in losing a \$1000.

I don't have a \$1000 to loose so I will do the same thing with a simulation.  I've picked 100 combinations and I'm going to see if any of them hit in the local lottery during the next ten drawings.

if you want to lose than the simplest way i can think of is to try to avoid the first digit (90% to miss it).....say first day play to avoid start digit X and play all X00s....repeat same for 10 days

You'll have a slightly better chance of losing every time by betting \$1 for 1000 days, but that also offers the possibility of winning on more than 10 days. Obviously, you only want to place straight bets. Still, there's no guarantee that you won't win.

Of course you could always play all 1000 numbers at once. You'd win, but you'd only win once, which means losing half of the \$1000. Put \$2 on each number and you'll lose the full \$1000, but I'm assuming that's not really the goal.
