10 strategies of choosing lottery numbers right

The best strategy for choosing lottery numbers

The odds of getting any prize in Powerball are 1 to 54. The chances to match all six numbers correctly are much lower. However, the famous American game generates from one to twenty millionaires a week on average. Every lottery player would love to get into this "lucky twenty". Are there any tips and secrets in choosing lottery numbers that will help win a massive prize? Sure! It’s not art, but skill.

Here are some helpful tips to contribute to your skill of choosing your lottery numbers in a proper way:

Pick both even and odd numbers!

Combinations consisting of only even or odd numbers are not common (they occur only in 3% of all winning cases). Therefore, make combinations with even and odd numbers when you play the favorite game in a ratio of 3 to 2 or 2 to 3! By the way, do you remember what even and odd numbers are? If you haven’t listened to the mathematics teacher at school, we remind you that even numbers can be divided by two without remainder, while odd numbers can’t be divided by two.

Watch for "hot" and "cold" numbers

There is a special system of choosing lottery numbers. According to the latest data, the most common (“hot”) Powerball numbers are: 26, 16, 41, 32, 22, and 23. Here are the least common numbers (“cold”): 65, 60, 67, 68, 66, and 61. Just compare: number 26 has been drawn in 273 drawings, whereas number 65 has been drawn just 10 times over the past few years. We think that statistics speak much more eloquently than any words.

Choose numbers around the entire ticket form!

It’s necessary to pick numbers throughout the entire ticket form — not just in the lower or the upper parts of it. Statistics show that winning combinations containing the entire "top" or the entire "bottom" numbers are not frequent (less than 3% of all big winnings). Don’t limit yourself!

Calculate the amount of your numbers

Here is another system of choosing numbers for lottery. After you pick 6 numbers to take part in SuperEnalotto, EuroMillions, or any other lottery, fold them together and make sure that their amount falls within the range of 141 to 240. 70% of all Jackpot-winning combinations fall into this range. You can choose two systems of selecting lottery numbers and implement them together. Probably, this will further increase your winning odds.

Use the option "Easy-Pick"

Studies argue that the choice of random numbers increases your winning odds. In addition, by choosing a random combination, you have better chances NOT to give a decent piece of your Jackpot to other players — those who are attached to dates and lucky numbers.

Find your perfect number strategy

There are various strategies for choosing lottery numbers right. They were effective for a number of winners. Free lottery strategies can be found on the Internet. They are a magic square, a wheeling strategy, and many others.

The magic square one of the best winning strategies

Use the best combination

Specialist for Statistics Richard Lloyd has determined that the best combination for playing the national English game UK Lotto is 3, 06, 13, 23, 27, and 49. If some player picked these numbers in every separate draw of the British public game, he would win £ 2.017.671 in total.

We would also like to give you some more tags and tips to keep in mind if you wish to make a scoop. If you really want to get prosperous and rich, try to avoid these numbers and combinations:

Birthdays of relatives and friends

People are extremely attached to dates. The problem is that a month includes only 31 days highest possible, respectively, many players don’t choose numbers outside the range of 1-31. In many cases, this prevents a person from winning the Jackpot. Don’t pick your cat’s birthday date when you fill in the ticket form. That doesn’t work this way.

"Lucky" numbers

Experimental psychologist Jonathan Clark says that the most common lucky number is 7. There is a probability that a good bunch of people will choose this number in their lotto ticket. Some people pick two or even three of such numbers in the ticket form at once. This won’t increase their winning odds, but if it turns out that lucky numbers, such as 7, 3, 5, 13, and so on, will be included in the winning combination; your Jackpot will be split and shared between you and other lucky baggers.

Aesthetic approach

In 1995, 133 people won the Jackpot in one of the draws of the UK Lotto. It turned out that the winning combination formed a bizarre figure in the filled ticket form. If you are fond of choosing numbers in a ticket by forming swords, spirals, sticks or flowers from numbers, remember: you are not the only one who has a sense of the beautiful. You will have to give a portion of your Jackpot to a couple of other aesthetes.
