Default 1911 math

I realize my orignal chance of winning the lottery was somewhere in the neighborhood of 6000 out of 19,000 or about 30 percent. Now the assigned random numbers have reached about 5,300. Does that mean I now have only about 700 out of a remainder of 13,700 or about 5 percent chance of winning??

No, still same chance. More fuzzy logic than math with those #’s.
