We will pop in some fun strategies for good measure!

Play the Right Games

There is a selection of lottery games—and they each have different odds of winning.

Read the odds to ensure you're maximizing your chances of winning.

Pick up some scratch cards. Yes, they offer smaller prizes but higher chances of winning overall.

#Strategie 1:

Identifying Hot numbers, Cold numbers, Overdue Numbers

To use the hot, cold, overdue strategy, analyze the results of your chosen lottery – see which numbers have been drawn recently and which haven’t, at least 50 drawings is needed to get a decent sample size.

Hot numbers: Picked most frequently

Cold numbers: drawn less frequently overall.

Overdue numbers: are ones that have not shown up in recent weeks.

Some players claim that creating a set of winning numbers by mixing hot, cold, and overdue numbers gives players an edge.

Don't Miss a Lottery Win!

Keep your ticket somewhere that is safe and easy to find

Make a note of the drawing date and time in your calendar

Check and Double-check the numbers against your ticket

Use a lottery app to keep track

#Strategie 2:

Pick Traditional Lucky Numbers

According to a poll run by mathematician Alex Bellos, seven is not surprisingly the most popular lucky number in the world.

Seven days of the week, seven wonders of the world, seven continents, seven seas, and the list goes on.

Other traditional lucky numbers include three (as in “good things come in threes”) and four.

Play Second-Chance Games (Where Possible)

Many lotteries offer second-chance drawings on non-winning tickets giving players a bonus chance to be a winner.
#Strategie 3:

Pick Traditional Lucky Numbers

Pick numbers that have a personal meaning to you. For example, birthdays, a wedding anniversary, or the birthdays of kids and/or grandkids. Apart from dates consider the number of kids you have or the house number of your childhood home – whatever feels lucky to you. Just a little note on this play, when it comes to picking lottery numbers, dates are just as popular and many people will play them. On the other hand, dates often show up among the most popular lottery numbers!

Take Steps to Secure Winning Lottery Tickets

Sign it! Your signature on the back of a lottery ticket can help you prove that it is indeed yours if it gets lost or stolen.
