Play To Win: Insider Lotto Tips

Seven Lottery BallsWinning a major jackpot has been, and still is, the dream of many especially during these rocky economic times. While the world economy falters, revenues for many lotto games and online lotto games are picking up as people search for that something extra. While it seems like a longshot to win, there are some things you can do to increase your chances of a victory.

The easiest thing you can do is to reduce your odds. You can do that by choosing the right game to play. For instance, you can give yourself a better chance of winning by playing a traditional 6/47 lotto game instead of a Powerball or Mega Millions game. The jackpot will be smaller in the 6/47 game, but the odds of winning are shifted in your favor.

There is some methodology in the selection of numbers. When it comes to playing numbers, your choices have to be balanced. For example, do not play a set of numbers from a single group. For example, don’t play all single digit numbers. Do not play all odd numbers or all even numbers. It is very rare to see all numbers in a 6/47 lotto game be even or all odd.

For the best results, do not choose a set of consecutive numbers. Do not pick 1-2-3-4-5 as it is almost guaranteed to be a loser. The likelihood that five or six consecutive numbers will be chosen is slim to none. Also, stay away from choosing patterns, like a straight line or a diagonal, on your ticket.

Choosing Lotto Games

There are a variety of lotto games around the world, many of which can be played online nowadays with modern technology. Most nations and states have laws that pertain to gambling and have established legal ages for those looking to play lotto games. This means that you must be of a certain age in order to play. When playing for the first few times, it can be intimidating since there are so many games. Which ones should you choose?

Well, most lotto games are inexpensive. You can play for as little as 50 cents or a dollar and some games may cost a little bit more. Most are in the one dollar range. Cost may be a factor for some, but what you really want to look for are games that are fun and those that present the best odds in your favor. For example, a pick three game offers a player a greater chance of winning than a player who takes part in the Mega Millions or Powerball.

Games should be fun for the player too. In a pick three, game players must choose three numbers and can play those numbers straight or in a boxed combination. While a player might win more often, his or her winnings are much smaller than in some of the larger jackpot games like a Powerball. Players might not be excited about a $47 win and might rather enjoy the thrill of a chance at winning hundreds of millions instead. The final choice, of course, is up to the individual.
