The odds of winning the major million dollar lottery prize are so prohibitive, you are sadly, unlikely to ever win. Sorry to have to break the news, but it’s the truth.
However, there are certain strategies that will significantly improve your chances of winning any of one of the smaller, lower division lottery prizes.
If you’re looking for bigger and / or more frequent lotto prizes, follow my advice:
Strategy #1 – Play The Smaller Lotteries
Today, lotto players can choose to enter a wide variety of lotteries all over the world. Do your research, and purchase tickets in those lotteries which:
* Attract less entries – this way, you share the prize pool with fewer people.
* Use a smaller pool of numbers – the less numbers to choose from, the easier it is to win a prize, any prize.
* Cost the least to play per game / ticket – this way, your dollar can purchase many more chances to win a prize..
Strategy #2 – Pick Your Own Numbers
Never buy a ‘quick-pick’ or agency random-generated ticket.
Research indicates that lotto players who pick their own numbers (no matter what method they use) are always more successful than those who purchase the popular ‘quick-pick’ style tickets at their lotto agency. Why is this so, you may ask, when the number are randomly selected during the Draw? Because, if you look carefully, it is rare for a computer generated ‘quick-pick’ style lottery ticket to actually cover all of the total pool of numbers, which immediately puts you at a disadvantage. In theory, random-generated tickets are supposed to cover all of the numbers, but they rarely do.
Still not convinced? How many lotto players do you know that win BIG and frequently use ‘quick-pick’ tickets? None? There’s your answer.
Stay tuned, as this phenomenon is discussed in another Lotto Secret.
Strategy #3 – Pick Numbers Higher Than 31
A very large proportion of lotto players choose birth-dates (you know, 1 to 31) belonging to their family and friends to determine their ‘lucky’ numbers. Now, there’s nothing wrong with that, but I can guarantee that whenever the drawn winning numbers are mostly, if not all below 31, the prize dividends will ALWAYS be smaller.
So if you want larger prizes when you do win, pick numbers above 31 – you’ll be sure to share the total prize pool with significantly fewer people.
Strategy #4 – Form A Syndicate
Dollar for dollar, every lotto player has the exact same chance as another of winning a lotto prize. But, logic clearly suggests that if you spend more dollars, you’ll have more chances. These are two of the three immutable laws of lotto (the third is that the numbers are drawn randomly).
So, join with a group (or syndicate) of co-workers or friends, and pool your collective weekly lotto spend to get more “bang for your buck.” Studies have shown that the odds certainly favour those lotto players who pool their funds with others to share in the cost of what would ordinarily be an expensive set of lotto ticket(s).
