Didn't see it but as with most of these things i'm somewhat suspicious, so what, was it just him sitting there listing off lottery numbers a few minutes before the numbers were drawn?

No, he had the numbers there ready. He werent allowed to show them until after the Beeb showed the numbers for legal reasons. I didnt think 5 secs later would count though!

I guess if he'd shown them before they were selected and they were right the BBC could be done for fixing the results, even if they hadn't. biggrin.gif

showing them about 5 mins before wouldnt have hurt would it? cos the registration for the draw closes atleast an hour before. doing it just a few seconds after still makes me unsure. this thing sounds fake, we shall see tomorrow.

Yeah but some people would try to link him to the BBC, saying they were in on it together, as some sort of illuminati conspiracy.

The lottery isnt BBC run, its owned by a separate company. I cant see it being fake as he once predicted what horses wouldm win 8 times in a row. Besides, how the hell can you fix the lottery?

I have no idea, but there will always be people who jump to conclusions and assume that was the case. So I guess it was to avoid legal action from some silly people.

Yeah true, but I don't think that's enough to make me think it was 'fake'. Maybe channel 4 didn't want to push the fact they already got to show the lottery in the first place.

I watched this. I can only think of one way he could have done it. He is famous for remembering a large amount of information at once. Did anyone see the celebrity show he did when he remembered a full AtoZ of london, and told them the exact page and co-ord they live at.

Anyway, back to this. I think he must have spent the past year writing down all the numbers and analyzing how often they dropped. He must of figured out a way of predicting the odds of each number dropping based on how high the possibility it was. I don't know how you'd go about this, but it is bloody clever. If he tells us how he did it (which he said he will on Friday), then there are surely going to be people trying this out and winning millions....

He did something similar a while back, where he predicted what horse would win a race. He got it right, but the reason he got it right is because he got loads of people to put money on all of the horses and only filmed the one who won. Fair enough the lottery one has a much larger range but he probably did something along those lines. He's putting a show on tomorrow on the TV (Dunno what channel) telling us how he did it anyway.

You don't predict the lottery. There's always a trick involved, just like magic. Don't let anything make you believe otherwise rolleyes.gif

On the TV? That's a risky move, these new fangled inventions will never catch on, why doesn't he just write a newspaper column explaining how he did it?

On a less sarcastic level i'm guessing it'll be on Channel 4 or E4.

He might of not even got the TV on. They had ten mins to do it, and the lottery is a 20 min program. He could of missed the lottery all together. That would be better than a hoax.
