How to Increase Your Chances of Winning the Lottery

The lottery is a game of chance.  You must really enjoy the process to keep playing, especially if you have never won any money at all.  

Otherwise, it will completely frustrate you since the numbers are chosen at random. However, if you want to increase your chances of winning, there are some steps you can take.

You will not only have the opportunity to bet on United States Lotteries, but you will be able to choose numbers from some of the world’s largest lottery jackpots.

Set Up a Lottery Syndicate

Speak to friends or colleagues about setting up a lottery syndicate. If everyone contributes a small amount each week, your chances of hitting the jackpot are multiplied. It’s where most of the largest prizes have been won.

Certain Numbers Do Come up More Often

It is said to have no significance, but specific numbers do seem to come up more often than others in lottery draws.  Surprisingly, the name 13 is not one of them. The top numbers that come up most often are 23, 40, 44, 38, 30, 33. Keeping some of these numbers in mind could increase your chances of having a win.

A Certain Time of Purchase Could Be Best

Many people have stated that the day and time of your purchase can increase the odds for you.  Although it should not make a difference mathematically speaking, statistics have shown that tickets purchased on Friday evenings tend to have the winning numbers.

Increase in October

The National Lottery adds 10 more balls to the machines in October.  Not only does this increase your chances of winning a smaller amount of money, but it also increases the number of millionaires created each week.  At least two millionaires per week are produced by the Millionaires’ Raffle.

Play the Right Games

The lottery is not just one huge game. Every state has various lottery games, and the chances for winning are different with each game.  Read the odds of every game to ensure that you are genuinely increasing your chances at winning with that game. Mega Millions and Powerball are national lotteries which increase the spectrum of the game and could decrease your chances in some ways.  Remember that scratch-off tickets are not a waste of time. Although the prizes are smaller, the chances of winning are higher.

Chances are Multiplied with Second Chance Games

It is not a good idea to throw away your ticket because your numbers did not come up in the drawing.  A lady from Kentucky reported a huge win, but it was not from the numbers played at the time of purchase.  The win came from a second chance game in the state lottery. Her winnings were a little over $120,000. If she had thrown away her ticket, she never would have had her “second chance.”

Secure Your Ticket

When you purchase a ticket, write your name on the back of it.  If you lose the ticket, and it is a winner, someone else will not be able to claim your winnings. Your signature is strong evidence that the ticket belongs to you should it be stolen.

Verify the winning numbers by a computer or newspaper.  You can even ask a clerk for the winning numbers. Never give your ticket back to the clerk and ask if you won.  If the clerk is dishonest, he might tell you that your ticket was not a winner, knowing for a fact it is a winning ticket.  He could keep your ticket and claim that it belongs to him.

Choosing Rarer Numbers

Although specific numbers seem to come up more often than others, it has been reported that choosing rarer numbers can keep you from having to share winnings with others who chose the same numbers as you.  How can you know what numbers are rare? Some people look at number combinations that others avoid while other people use a lottery app.

Of course, taking these steps is not a 100% guarantee that you will win, but you can increase your chances of having a good win if you change the way you have been playing.  Whatever you do, keep playing, and never give up.
