Improve your Lottery Luck with these Simple Tips

If you play the lottery on a regular basis, you can find yourself blaming your rotten lottery luck for not winning. With each draw that goes by, your numbers fail to come up and you despair of ever winning.

But there are some common pitfalls that lottery players fall into and some simple ways to improve your lottery luck when picking your numbers.

Steer clear of birthdays

The most common problem is that lottery players restrict themselves to only using birthdays. Sure, those numbers may mean a lot to you sentimentally, but only being able to choose from 1–31 means you missing out on a whole range of options.

Most lotteries go up to and beyond 40 numbers, so ditch the dates when picking numbers.

Do your homework

Don’t worry, there won’t be a test tomorrow, but doing some research can help when selecting numbers. It makes sense to check what the most drawn numbers are and also what numbers have been appearing most in recent draws. Of course, no number is guaranteed to come out but having that extra bit of knowledge can point you in the winning direction.

Roll the dice

Not literally, but use a random choice option when making a ticket purchase. Most lotteries call this a ‘Lucky Dip’ and lets the machine make a random selection for you. Like we said before, each number has just as much chance as any other, so letting the machine choose for you means you’re just as likely to win.

Learn your lines

This may seem obvious, but buying more lines for a draw means you have a higher chance of matching the drawn numbers and winning a prize. Make sure you only buy what you can afford for each draw though.

May the odds be ever in your favour

Each lottery has there own distinct odds but also different prize tiers. By doing some more research, you can scout out which have better odds of a jackpot win or better odds for a lower prize tier.

Those with low odds of a jackpot win do tend to have the highest paying jackpots though, such as Powerball or Mega Millions in the USA.

Skip carbs, not the draw

Many players will only purchase tickets when a big jackpot shows up. While the jackpot may be larger, you could have missed a draw when your numbers already came up. If you’re able to, you should play every draw with the same numbers so you never miss out.

Another problem with only playing for the big jackpots is that everyone else is doing the same. If you do win, you’ll then have to share the prize pot with an increased number of players who also won.

The Jackpot Must Go

Some lotteries have a max number of rollovers that can occur before the prize fund must go. If no one wins the jackpot on this draw, then the money is distributed between the lower prize tiers.

The UK Lotto for example has just introduced this feature, with their being a maximum of five rollovers before the jackpot must be won. This means you could increase your takings even by winning a lower prize tier, you just have to hope no one wins the jackpot on the final draw.

So there you have it, a few simple ways you can try to improve your luck. Just remember there’s no guaranteed way of winning the lottery and to always play within your limits.
