Scientific Games expands supply deal with Massachusetts Lottery

Scientific Games (SG) has signed a new, five-year contract to provide the Massachusetts State Lottery Commission (MSLC) with instant games, second chance promotions and digital engagement programs.

The new contract, which may be extended by up to two years by MLSC, is expanded to include consumer digital services to engage players through second-chance game features.

SG currently supplies 96% of the Massachusetts Lottery’s instant games, and in the fiscal ended June 30 2020, its products generated $3bn of the operator’s total $3.6bn in instant game retail sales.

Since the start of fiscal year 2021, which began on July 1, the supplier has helped the operator grow instant game sales by 11.3%, or $99.7m.

SG produced Massachusetts Lottery’s first instant game in 1974, meaning the new contract will see the supplier extend its relationship with the lottery beyond the fifty-year mark.

“The combined expertise of the Mass Lottery team and the teams at Scientific Games has resulted in great instant game entertainment that has generated strong revenues to benefit programs in the Commonwealth,” said Ed Farley, chief marketing officer for MSLC.

“We look forward to continuing this partnership and working to expand player digital engagement.”

John Schulz, SG’s senior VP, lottery instant products, added: “It goes without saying that the Mass Lottery has been the highest performing instant game lottery in the world for many years and continues to set the bar for lotteries around the globe. We are extremely proud of the results of this trusted business partnership over the past four decades.”

“Our second chance and digital services are second to none, and we look forward to further expanding Scientific Games’ services to player engagement in online/mobile channels in Massachusetts.”

Results published earlier this month showed that growth in the supplier’s igaming and lottery divisions was offset by gaming declines in the third quarter of 2020, as revenue for the three months ending 30 September fell by 18.4% to $698m.

The year-on-year decline was caused by difficulties faced in its land-based content business, SG Gaming, for which revenue declined 49.1% to $231m as the industry continues to grapple with novel coronavirus (Covid-19) restrictions.

Singapore TOTO

In the Singapore game of TOTO, 6 numbers plus one “additional” number are drawn at random from the numbers 1 to 49. In the Ordinary game, players spend $1 and they choose 6 numbers in the hope of becoming instant millionaires.

A prize pool is established at 54% of sales for a draw. Typically, $2.8 million dollars is “invested” in each game – and games are offered twice per week. This is quite a lot for a country of 5.5 million people…

Plenty of other countries have similar Toto games, usually called Lotto. The more numbers in a game, the worse your chances become.

Summary of the Prizes (Singapore Toto)

Grp Prize Amount Winning Numbers Matched
1 38% of prize pool (min $1 M) 6 numbers
2 8% of prize pool 5 numbers + additional number
3 5.-2`

We chose `3` of the `6` winning numbers and chose `3` numbers from the `43` remaining numbers that did not win. Again, we need to consider the probability of the additional number not being one of our `3` remaining (non-winning) numbers. This probability is `1 − 3/43 = 40/43`. So we multiply by `40/43`.

So there is 1 chance in 61 of getting the Group 7 prize.

Reader’s Question

A reader wrote in to ask:

“In that group 6 (3 + additional number), there are `812` combinations, please help me to know all the possible `812` combinations.”

My reply

We can re-write the fraction as: `(185,115)/(13,983,816)xx3/43 = (12,915)/(13,983,816)`.

So actually there are 12,915 Group 6 winning combinations (the numerator of the final fraction), not 812 (which was obtained by cancelling).

For example, in the 19 Mar 2007 draw, the Winning Numbers were:

2 15 16 19 25 32

The Additional Number was 37

I won’t list out all 12,915 combinations :-), but I will show how to get started.

Choosing 3 of the 6 winning numbers:

2 15 16
2 15 19
2 15 25
2 15 32


There are 20 such combinations: `C(6,3)`

Now with each of these, we would have chosen 3 non-winning numbers, and there are C(43,3) = 12,341 such combinations for each of the 20 winning triples. For example, with the first 3 winning numbers, the non-winning combinations could include:

2 15 16 1 3 4
2 15 16 1 3 5
2 15 16 1 3 6
2 15 16 1 3 7
2 15 16 1 3 8

There are `C(6,3) × C(43,3) = 246,820` such combinations.

Only some of those (3 in every 43 of them, in fact) will include the additional number 37, eg

2 15 16 1  3  37
2 15 16 1  37 38
2 15 16 37 38 39

Other possible Group 6 combinations, using other winning numbers, are:

15 16 19 37 38 39
19 25 32 37 38 39

There are `C(6,3) × C(43,3) × 3/43 = 17,220` of these.-2) = 1\ “in”\ 53.6`.

System Entries

In most Lotto and Toto games, you can buy a “System”. Your chances of winning increase, but of course, you pay more as well. For example:

System 7 means you choose 7 numbers (instead of the usual 6). This gives you 7 times the chance of winning (so it costs 7 times as much), since it is equivalent to buying 7 different 6-number games, or C(7,6). Say you chose 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13 as your 7 numbers. You have the following 7 ways of winning if the 6 winning numbers happened to be:

1 3 5 7 9 11
3 5 7 9 11 13
1 5 7 9 11 13
1 3 7 9 11 13
1 3 5 9 11 13
1 3 5 7 11 13
1 3 5 7 9 13

System 8 means you choose 8 numbers and it gives you the equivalent of 28 ordinary bet combinations, so costs 28 times as much, or `C(8,6)`.

Similarly, System 9 gives you `C(9,6) = 84` ordinary bet combinations, System 10 gives `C(10,6) = 210` ordinary combinations, System 11 gives `C(11,6) = 462` combinations and System 12 (the maximum in the Singapore game) gives `C(12,6) = 924` combinations.

The probability of winning with a System 12 is `924` times the probability of winning when you buy 1 game, that is:

`924/(13,983,816)` or `1` in `15,134`.

Reader’s Question

Reader David wrote in to ask about the probability of winning a Group 6 prize when you buy a System 12. He asked what happens when the probability appears to be greater than 1.

What he means is this: For a Group 6 prize, the probability is 1 in 812, so (it appears) a System 12 will give you 924 chances in 812 or 1.138 chances – greater than 1! However, this refers to the high chance in relation to your 12 chosen numbers – not to the total 49 possible numbers.

It just means you can be “almost certain” to get a Group 6 prize when you buy a System 12.

In fact, you would expect to win `924/321 = 2.88` (almost 3) prizes of some sort.

If you win a Group 6 prize with a System 12, you actually get 28 Group 6 shares (28 × $25 = $700) and because you have 3 correct numbers as well, you get
56 Group 7 shares (56 × $10 = $560) so your total prize amount is $1,260 (or a “profit” of $1260 – $924 = $336).

Don’t believe anyone who says any strategy is a “sure thing”. The only sure thing is the “house” (or in many cases, the government) are the real winners.

Which are the “Best” Toto Numbers?

Of course, there are no “best” numbers, but it’s interesting to see which ones occur most frequently.

Toto number frequency

Singapore Toto number frequency

[Latest data: 20 Apr 2021; Data since 9 Oct 2014; Source]

The number with highest frequency (40, at 101 times) has come out 1.8 times as often as the lowest frequency number (45, at 57 times).

The data for the above chart comes from the Toto number frequency chart (at Singapore Pools site.)

An Interesting Problem…

On Monday 11 June 2001, the winning numbers for Singapore Toto were 1,10,19,23,29,45 with additional number 34.

The next consecutive draw on Thursday 14 June 2001 had five of the same numbers from the Monday draw. The winning numbers for this draw were 1,10,14,19,23,34 with additional number 33.

Thus the numbers 1,10,19,23,34 were repeated.

This is very rare and quite amazing. What is the probability of this occurring?


NOTE: At the time, there were only 45 numbers to choose from in Singapore Toto, not 49 as there is now.

Let us start with a similar but simpler game. Say we have 9 numbers (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9) and we draw 4 numbers each time. Four numbers have been drawn (say 1,2,3,4) We want to find the probability that two of these four numbers come out again in the next draw.

We divide the numbers into 2 groups:

Category A: 1,2,3,4 (four numbers came out in the first draw)

Category B: 5,6,7,8,9 (five remaining numbers)

Suppose 1 and 2 repeat:











There are C(5,2) = 10 numbers in this group. We choose 2 from the 5 numbers from Category B.

Similarly there is another group in which 1,3 repeat, and another where 1,4 repeat, then 2,3 repeat etc.

Altogether there are C(4,2) = 6 groups (4 is the number of numbers in group A and 2 of them are drawn).

So the probability of the 2 numbers repeating in 2 different draws is:


The TOTO case is similar: In each game, we draw 7 numbers (6 plus one additional) from a pool of 45. We want to find the probability of having 5 numbers repeating.

There are 7 numbers in Category A and 38 numbers in Category B.

The number of ways to have the first five numbers repeating:

We choose 2 from 38 numbers in group B: C(38,2) = 703.

There are C(7,5) = 21 groups, and there are 7 numbers in group A and 5 of them are drawn.

The denominator is C(45,7) = 45 379 620.

The probability is

`(703xx21)/(45\ 379\ 620)=(4\ 921)/(15\ 126\ 540)`

`=3.-6` or `1` in `170\ 600`.

Also the probability of having all the same 7 numbers coming out again is `1/(45\ 379\ 620)`.

The answer for the probability of having AT LEAST 5 repeating numbers in the next draw is

`(14\ 763)/(45\ 379\ 620)` `+(266)/(45\ 379\ 620)` `+1/(45\ 379\ 620)`

`=167/(504\ 218)`


or 1 in 3019.2.

Shubin Igor, 19.10.2014

attractive appearance.

I bought it in an online store, delivered it in a package and left. I was unable to start it immediately after receiving and unpacking it. The seller’s service engineer couldn’t either. I refused to hand over a new generator for repair without a single hour of work and took the money.

The reliability of this generator is zero, well, or maybe someone is lucky.In my opinion, the manufacturer is openly lying about them in writing: the advertisement says: “voltage accuracy is 1%”. In fact, the sellers sent me the answer of one German from Endress to my question about how an accuracy of 1% is achieved when, according to the circuit in the instructions, instead of an AVR, a simple capacitor is installed in it. The German wrote that the accuracy would actually be no better than 5%.

I refused to replace it with a similar one or to re-purchase Endress ESE 506 Duplex.

Yes, it takes about 30 minutes to remove the front control panel to connect the battery terminals.In my opinion, this is a big mistake of Endress engineers. Very uncomfortable.

There are many promises from the manufacturer about “high-quality current as from an outlet” and about high reliability. A very high price, unjustified by anything in the design of the generator. In fact, it is an average quality generator, and a lottery one: it may not start immediately upon purchase, even in the hands of a service engineer.
After much deliberation, I bought Endress ESE 1006 Duplex (already with AVR, and more powerful). The voltage is really stable, within 1%.But the frequency jumps from 49.0 to 52.9 Hz regardless of the load. The lights flicker slightly. At first imperceptibly, but over time it starts to annoy. Well, today, after 8 months and 9 operating hours (it was rarely used), the generator supplied 345 V to the load. The lighting lamps survived, it was lucky that at that moment the refrigerator did not turn on and the UPS of the boiler disconnected the load from the network, switched to batteries.
In general, Endress Duplex is sheer deception and poor quality. Don’t repeat my mistakes – don’t buy.

Where they come from in the visions of Kharitonov’s heroes, the devil will understand.But one thing is clear: they do not seem to be in vain – the characters “trust in a mirage, just as they trust in unreliable poetry,” because without it, “maybe life cannot be sustained at all.” So they cling to their dreams. Because “in the depths of our souls, almost any of us still settles: you never know what? After all, we really do not know everything in the universe, we cannot consciously perceive with our limited senses some secret interconnections, influences, in modern terms, energies “(” Pushkin’s Spirit “).

There is something shaky in the story itself.Of course, Kharitonov is a master. But often he writes almost on the verge, it seems, one more step – and he stumbles, ruins the story. There is a lot of ambiguous, controversial in the language: the spine, like a bamboo, “senses”, “a dazzling sun emerged from under the clouds.” On the one hand, it seems to be nothing, but on the other, it sounds unpleasant to the ear. Sometimes Kharitonov resembles his own character from the story “The Cloud Catcher”, which gave the name to the entire book. Innokenty is a novice artist, “he was able to draw anything from memory himself, then he tried more and more to reproduce what he dreamed of – clearly, as it happens in reality.These were attempts to capture the moment. ” So Kharitonov writes not so much about ordinary people as about the significance of the moment in their lives. So, the tipsy Babich, the character of “The Seventh Heaven”, got into a conversation on the train with a “charlatan”, a “lottery man”. He declares to him: “And life, if you want to know, does not happen without a lottery.” And go and figure it out, is it true or the merchant is just trying to push his “win-win” tickets. Death in this story occurs unexpectedly, although the author is intriguing from the very beginning. Babich reads a detective story, then talks to a strange lottery man, agrees to play.And then, as if happily avoiding something terrible, incomprehensible. “No, I’ll still live,” he mutters barely audibly and hurries away. At the same time, Kharitonov’s prose contains a lot of space and simplicity. Stories are read almost in one breath.

But sometimes it seems that the writer is not interested in people at all. Rather, he is worried about their visions. For example, Yakov Lvovich, an old man out of his mind, lies in a cold hospital bed, whispering his own words: “All definitions are not about that. In intelligence there is something of a religious attitude.Out of denomination. A free-thinking person simply feels: there is a demand. Something above you. You can’t afford everything. Not entitled”. And he sees incomprehensible white birds. Meanwhile, the doctors have already written off him, only Inga Lazarevna, a former work colleague, still comes.

Perhaps, it is true, our life is only an appearance (this is, if you will, a kind of Khariton’s greetings to Plato). And all that we have is a moment, it, like a grain of sand between the pages, does not mean anything and at the same time is something integral and important in its own way.It’s good to just smoke by the open window or look at “a milky dawn fog, a panorama cut out of rows of cardboard: below is a common whiteness for everyone, but the closer to the tops of trees, roofs, bell towers, the more each individual plan became darker, filled with dense outlines.” (“Grain of sand between the pages”), looking at the clouds, talking to yourself …

There are literary allusions in Kharitonov’s texts. In the story “Session” one interlocutor to another: “You think, I can confirm this, try to draw a conclusion” or “How good, how fresh the roses were” – deliberately put into the title of the story.

But for all its ambiguity, the book is not badly written. Ordinary life is seen by Kharitonov’s characters, if not a miracle, then something wonderful. In any case, they want to be until their last breath. Isn’t this the whole Russian person? He lives, is in a hurry, and everything is not enough for him. And then, closer to the finale, he is horrified and angry, like a character in “Playing with oneself”: “Lord! Can I go through this again? ” But here, how lucky is it, it does not depend on us.

By car: Singapore is connected to peninsular Malaysia by two bridges. The Causeway is very popular and therefore congested. It connects the Woodlands Bridge in northern Singapore and downtown Johor Bahru. Second Link, the second bridge connecting Malaysia and Singapore, was built between Tuas in western Singapore and Tanjung Kupang in western Johor.

90,000 charity lottery “Picasso for one hundred euros” raffles off the original of the famous Spaniard – InoTV

A small still life is exhibited in the Paris Picasso Museum, which will receive one of the participants in the charity lottery, France 3 transfers.To participate, just go to the campaign website and buy a ticket for 100 euros – the organizers promise to spend all the funds raised to help the poor people of African countries.

Would you like to decorate your living room with a Picasso painting? Not these, which are presented in the museum, but this small still life, painted in 1921. Oil painting depicts a piece of newspaper and a glass of absinthe. This painting belongs to the fine art dealer, the major Picasso collector David Nahmad.Its cost is 1 million euros, but you can win it for only 100 euros: you just need to go to this site.

PERI COCHIN, organizer of the Picasso for One Hundred Euros lottery: There are only 200,000 tickets on sale, so this is one chance in 200,000 if all tickets are sold out. Otherwise, only sold tickets will take part in our draw, so there will definitely be a winner.

In the first lottery in 2013, the prize was won by this 24-year-old American who is installing fire alarms.He decided to keep Picasso with him, but is going to sell the painting one day to ensure his old age.

JEFFREY GONANO, first winner in 2013: This was one of the craziest things that happened in my life. I didn’t know much about Picasso before the lottery, now I know a lot more.

This young American woman looks at the 2020 prize at the Picasso Museum and begins to dream.

AMERICAN: Oh, I think I’ll just hang it in my bedroom.

VISITOR 1: € 100 for a Picasso is still very affordable.

There is a charity event behind this strange lottery. In 2013, the first lottery brought in 5 million euros, which went to fund this artisan village in Sura in southern Lebanon. The second is organized in support of the CARE Association: it will help 200 million people from Morocco, Madagascar and Cameroon to get access to drinking water.

VISITOR 2: This is a good way to get people interested in donating.Because at the same time we think that we can eventually, maybe, win a prize, but at the same time, these 100 euros will go to a good cause, so why not do it?

The lucky winner will be announced on March 30th. The draw at Christie’s Paris will be streamed in real time online. The organizers hope to raise 20 million euros.

Air date Mar 13, 2020.

90,000 No, Mark Zuckerberg Doesn’t Tell You About Winning Facebook Lotteries – Naked Security

Do you really think Mark Zuckberg is going to personally text you in the middle of the night to tell you you’ve won $ 750,000 in the Facebook lottery?

No? Well, you are reading security blogs, so let’s turn our attention to people who don’t, because they are juicy prey that hundreds of fake Zucks and fake Sheryl Sandbergs are targeting.

In addition to fan pages and satire accounts that are in line with Facebook’s policies, the New York Times found 205 accounts impersonating Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sherrill Sandberg on Facebook and Instagram.

At least 51 of the scam stories the newspaper noticed, including 43 on Instagram, were lottery scams.

Cut some slack for those who fell for one of the crooks.One of the victims, retired forklift driver and army veteran Gary Bernhardt, asked us to think: Is it hard to believe that Zuck himself will tell you?

After all, this is a hands-on guy who made it his mission last year to visit every state in the US he has never seen. And during the tour to work on a car assembly line, chat with a firefighter in Indiana, feed a calf, drive a tractor, dine with farmers, and talk to a recovering addict.

Bernhardt told The Times that he got up before dawn, traded messages with someone who was pretending to be a young billionaire. Fook Tsuk told him that in order to receive his winnings, he first needs to send $ 200 to iTunes gift cards.

Bernhardt picked up gift cards at a gas station and sent redemption codes to the fraudster’s account. It was November 2017. By January, he still didn’t have his lottery winnings, but the impostor pounced on him for another $ 1,310.He told The Times that money accounted for about a third of his Social Security checks for three months.

The Times claims these imposter accounts are proliferating despite Facebook groups tracking scams and imposter account complaints that date back to 2010. You can see sample Facebook lottery lotteries on Hoax Slayer and other debunking sites.

Stealing a photo of a famous CEO or COO, or indeed anyone with a photo on the Internet, is pretty straightforward.This is how a variation is prepared for the names of the sheep whose skins the wolves are wearing.

The Times found many variations on the name Mark Elliot. (Tsuk’s middle name is Elliot.) Ditto for Sandberg, or as scammers like to call her and hope you swallow, Sherril Sandbarg, Sherril Sandberg or similar tricks.

A reporter from the times of Jack Nikas came up with these fake accounts, among many others, after Facebook recently said that up to 3% or 60 million of his accounts are fake:

Let’s discuss Facebook’s issue with fake accounts…

After Facebook recently said that up to 3% of its accounts are fake, I wondered how to show that. So, I looked for Mark Zuckerberg impostors … and I found a bunch. Sheryl Sandbergs, too.

– Jack Nicas (@jacknicas) April 25, 2018

The Times reported its findings to Facebook. A day later, the company removed all 96 of the fake Zuckerberg and Sandberg accounts. All but one of 109 fake Instagram accounts were abandoned, but they also went down after the Times was published.

Facebook spokesman Pete Voss thanked the newspaper for its report, although he couldn’t explain why Facebook didn’t find that the scammers’ accounts looked like their top executives, including those that lasted more than eight years.


It’s not easy. We want to get better.

Real photographs and twisted names lend authenticity to ghosts if you’re not looking closely, or if you’re one of the demographics the scammers are targeting.Namely, after interviewing half a dozen recent victims, The Times found that the scam was working with adults, less educated and disadvantaged people.

Imposters’ susceptibility is bolstered by networks of other bogus accounts creating “Facebook claim agents,” a name made to sound like it is certain that there really is such a thing as the Facebook lottery.

The Times spoke to Robin Alexander van der Kieft, who runs several Facebook groups that track fraud.He said the fake accounts, some of which he traces in Nigeria and Ghana by IP address, are sharing his scam victories with each other.

Facebook admitted that all of these fake accounts are a problem. During his recent testimony to the Senate, Zuckerberg told Senator Dianne Feinstein that his team would have to return to her about “tens of thousands of fake accounts” and whether they could be “specifically” attributed to Russian intelligence.

In a January Facebook post, Zuckerberg said the company has nearly doubled the number of people who view content for all kinds of abuse, including impersonation.

The scammed people the Times talked about said it was hard to figure out how to report scammers, and once they did, Facebook was sluggish.

However, if you are targeting, report it. And please don’t laugh at the people you can rent. Fraud causes serious financial and physical hardship.
