Tips for playing The Lotto 6aus49

Remember – there’s no way to predict the numbers as drawings are completely random, but there are tried and tested ways to increase your chance to win.

We will pop in some fun strategies for good measure!

How to Choose Your Germany Lotto Numbers?

Very few players will consider choosing 6 consecutive lottery numbers, such as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. Instead, players choose numbers that are evenly spaced, in the belief that the chances of the former appearing are much lower than the latter.

In actual fact, both sets of numbers return the same odds.

Crazy, right! 

Which Numbers are Drawn Most Frequently in the Lottery?

Take a look at these hot and cold Lotto 6aus49 numbers. These are the numbers that have been drawn the most and least frequently.  Obviously, the Lotto 6aus49 has been running for a very long time and that adds up to a lot of data – here is a focused look of the last few years.

Hot Lotto 6aus49 Numbers

The number 3 is one of the most commonly drawn Lotto 6aus49 numbers and has been seen twice as many times as the least drawn number in the past few years. It is well ahead of all other numbers in terms of regularity with 29, 31, and 42 coming in next. All these have been drawn twice as many times as the least few common numbers.

Cold Lotto 6aus49 Numbers

28 has been seen the least of all the numbers in the last few years followed shortly by 26, and at the time of writing, 7 is one of the most overdue numbers, having not been seen for more than 6 months.

#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.

#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.

#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!
#Strategie 4:

Use Numerology to Pick Lucky Numbers

#Strategie 5:

Lucky Number Generators

The simplest way to find lucky numbers to play is simply to use a generator. Lucky number generators use numerology, or perhaps simply randomness, to find numbers for you.

Just a note About #LotteryStrategies

Finding and playing lucky numbers is based on fun more than facts.  Mathematically, every number has an equal chance of being chosen as a winner.

Odds of winning The Lotto 6aus49

The biggest prize on the Lotto 6aus49 returns odds of 1 in 139 million, making players more than twice as likely to win the Germany Lotto jackpot than they are the Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots.

Bigger odds mean more frequent rollovers.

Lotto 6aus49 odds:

Jackpot (6+1) = 1 in 139.838.160

Second (6) = 1 in 15.537.573

Third (5+1) = 1 in 542.008

Fourth (5) = 1 in 60.223

Fifth (4+1) = 1 in 10.324

Seventh (3+1) = 1 in 567

As a result, these odds, and the selection process, will likely remain the same way for many years to come.

Is the Lotto 6aus49 a Scam?

Absolutely not! The Lotto 6aus49 was launched on the 11th of January 1953, and is still going strong over 67 years later. Unfortunately, fake wins with other institutions have become a regular occurrence – so here are a few tips to keep you and your money safe!

Only buy tickets from authorized lottery retailers.

Offers to sell international lottery tickets by mail or online are usually illegal.

If you didn't buy a lottery ticket or participate in a second-chance lottery game, you didn't win no matter how convincing a text message may sound.

The lottery doesn't notify players when you win; players alone are responsible for checking your winning tickets.

Players are NEVER required to pay money up-front to receive a winning lottery prize.

lottery scam is a type of advance-fee fraud which begins with an unexpected email notification, phone call, or mailing (sometimes including a large check) explaining that “You have won!” a large sum of money in a lottery.

What to do in the case of suspecting a scam:

If you receive a letter or email claiming that you won a prize for the Lotto 6aus49 but did not enter, it is strongly recommended that you:

Delete or destroy the letter or email immediately.

Do not open any link contained in a suspicious email.

Do not respond to, or contact, the sender.

Do not disclose any personal or financial information.

Do not send any money.

If you have already responded, break off contact with the fraudster immediately.

If you have provided personal or financial details, alert your bank immediately.

If you receive a suspicious email, or believe you have been the victim of internet fraud, report it to the police.

Clues to look for:

The email is sent from a free webmail address (e.g. @hotmail.com, @yahoo.com, @gmail etc.)

The letter or email starts with something vague like ‘Dear Winner’.

Scam letters are often on poor quality, photocopied letterhead (although some will include a genuine business address in an attempt to provide legitimacy).

Strict time limit to claim the ‘prize’. This is intended to put the potential victim under pressure and deter them from seeking advice or investigating the matter further.

Confidentiality is often demanded as a ‘condition of winning’. Again, this is to deter the recipient from seeking the advice of friends or family who may be more familiar with this type of scam.

Poor spelling, grammar and syntax are usually a good indication that the letter or email is a scam.
