Secrets of Lottery Winners

Have you ever wondered why people end up actually winning the lottery? Do you think about what it takes to win those bets in a horse racing event? Apparently, winning the lottery is not exactly as hard as you think it should be. You have probably come across strategies that swear by their scientific soundness. There are certain strategies that are supposedly made from odds and extreme methods on doing probability figures. But what exactly is the science behind it?

Apparently the only important science that you need to know when it comes to winning the lottery or other betting games for that matter is this—logic. To give you a better idea on how to increase your chances of winning a betting game, here are some proven tips given by the world’s “first and only seven-time lottery grand prize winner” Richard Lustig and another known source in lottery winning—Gail Howard.

Tip #1: Don’t Spend More than You Can Afford

Lottery has that tendency to make you buy as many as you can or sometimes, double than what you actually can buy. But in truth, you should already have a budget before you buy your lottery tickets. Those who win and end up winning repeatedly like Richard Lustig still put a prime on someone’s financial capacity. To him, winning the lottery is synonymous to playing smartly.

Tip #2: Avoid Buying Quick Picks

Winners do not place their faith solely on quick picks. Contrary to that, it is believed that picking your own numbers and sticking with it is the best way to increase your chances of winning. It is best if you actually stick to one game and play it as much as you can. For example, if you have budget for eleven tickets, it would be wiser to buy eleven tickets of the same game instead of buying eleven different tickets. Sticking with one game would eventually increase the odds of getting your numbers right and picked in the lottery.

Tip #3: Do Some Game Handicapping

Handicapping involves studying past trends in order to predict the probability of how numbers will move. This strategy is best displayed in Wall Street, where stock brokers are known to apply the rules of handicapping in order to predict the rise and fall of the stock market. So if they can do it with their numbers, who is to say that the same cannot be applied for lottery? Remember that in horse racing and other gaming events, handicapping is used by the players themselves. When you apply handicaps in lottery, it would mean that you would study the patterns of the winning numbers which are randomly drawn.

Tip #4: Select Your Game and Stick With It

There are many types of lottery games available. But if you think that buying tickets from these games would increase your chances of winning, that kind of thinking is actually what these games would like you to think. When you spread out your budget over different kinds of games what you are actually doing is getting small odds with all games possible. If you stick with one game alone and bet as much as you can from that game, that is when you actually increase your chances of winning. It also helps to study and take note of the odds employed in these lottery games.

Tip #5: Formulate Your Own Probabilities

As you start to have a core game and study how the numbers are drawn, make sure you jot out the winning combinations. This would allow you to form a pattern and consider the fact that the numbers that often occur in a combination are the numbers that are highly possible to give you a win. On contrast, the numbers that do not turn up as often as you think it would in lottery draws would probably give you the least possible chance of winning.

Tip #6: Research about the Lottery Games and Try the New Ones

Lottery is a constantly changing game. Its creators are also smart enough to figure out that from among the thousands of people who buy tickets, there is a small albeit promising percentage that may have started to figure out how the game works. So you should keep your eyes and ears open regarding the new changes in rules and regulations. Also, do not be afraid to eventually try the new games especially those that supposedly increase the odds in your favor. As much as you enjoy playing them, do not forget to study and analyze how they work.
