Is it all just blind luck or can I increase my chances?

Luck plays a very big role in lotto draws. However, many mathematicians, statisticians and lotto experts say that you can actually increase your chances of winning. Here are a few known facts that may help you to increase your chances of winning in the lotto.

  • The smaller the pool of numbers from which you have to select, the better your chances. If you have to choose six numbers from a pool of 75 possible numbers, for example, your chances are much smaller than if you have to choose five numbers from a pool of 55 possible numbers. So do some homework and study the rules of the various lotteries on offer.

  • The roll-over policies of the various lotteries are significant. Some lotteries, such as the Euromillions, will roll over each time there is no category one winner. There is no limit to the number of times it can roll over. Other lotteries, such as the Eurojackpot lotto, have capped the number of roll-overs. When the cap is reached, the entire jackpot is distributed to winners on the next level. The latter scenario is much more favourable to players and the chances of winning significant amounts are greatly increased.

  • Keep a record of the winning numbers from each draw. Mathematicians say that when it comes to numbers, there is no randomness involved. There is always a pattern. If you can identify an emerging pattern you may just choose your numbers in a more informed manner.

There are many websites offering advice on how to increase your chances of winning the lotto. Study some of them and if it feel right to you, try some of the methods and techniques. After all, what have you got to lose?
