Win the Lottery by Playing Clever

All lotteries are games of chance, and as such there is nothing that a player can do to change the actual odds of winning. However, there are things that players can do as an individual to help improve their chances of winning a lottery prize.

Different lottery games offer different odds of winning and the odds are generally dependent on the quantity of numbers that need to be selected by the player and the quantity of numbers in play overall. For example, the EuroMillions game requires players to select 5 numbers from 1 to 50 and 2 numbers from 1 to 9, so the odds of matching all seven selections are 1 in 76,275,360. The UK Lotto game, on the other hand, requires players to select 6 numbers from 1 to 49, so the odds of matching all six are 1 in 13,983,816. Being selective about which lottery games to play allows participants to concentrate on the games that give them the best odds of winning.

Having selected a lottery game that gives you the best chances of winning, the next best thing you can do to improve your chances is buy more tickets. If you have a 1 in 13,983,816 chance of winning the UK Lotto game with a single ticket, you could give yourself ten times as many chances by playing ten tickets. Some players prefer to enter fewer draws and play more tickets than to enter every draw with fewer tickets.

However, if you can’t afford to spend a lot of money on multiple lottery tickets, or you simply don’t want to spend more you can also improve your chances by joining a lottery syndicate. This is basically a group of players who each invest a small amount of money and buy tickets as a collective. Subsequently, any prize that is won by any of the tickets is then shared between the lottery syndicate members. Many workplaces and social clubs run a lottery syndicate, but if you don’t have access to one you could start your own.

Although there is absolutely no scientific evidence to suggest that thinking positive will help you to win the lottery, many jackpot winners have claimed that their positive thoughts played at least some role in their success, so it certainly wouldn’t hurt to give it a go. Try imagining yourself winning on a daily basis and – who knows – your vision just might become a reality!

There is no technique that can absolutely guarantee you a lottery win – apart from buying every possible combination of numbers – but playing clever can certainly help improve your chances of winning.
