Maybe You Are the Next Lottery Success Story
Picture this - Your neighbor is saying you, Congratulations, you cracked the lottery! Be positive, your imagination can be real this time. Winning a lottery is such an attractive affair that plenty of people long for. However, only few of them are fortunate enough to hit the bull’s-eye in one stroke. Just because the chances of winning are too slim, does not mean that you will refrain from trying your luck in this game of straightforward gambling.

So, the question is - how to increase your chances of becoming the winner? Well, the more tickets you buy, the better your odds get. However, some people believe that there is something more than just luck. Read on to learn them:

Quick picks or self-picks - which one to go for?

Some people firmly believe that your odds of winning are better if you play via automated picks (chosen by the computer) in comparison to self-picked numbers. However, statistics elucidate that the possibilities of winning are more or less the same, regardless of the way you chose your numbers.

The main problem with self-picks is they lack variety and randomness, as most of the human beings are programmed in the same manner. You never know, your favorite numbers might be someone else’s special numbers too. On the contrary, the numbers chosen by quick picks are strictly random.

The smaller, the better

As per a competent statistician, you should shell out small payouts. It might involve a lot of time, but the chances of becoming the winner are more. A conventional scratch card has winning chances somewhere in between 1: 5 and 1:2 1/5. You lotto can consider the same when choosing your scratchers.

You can also ask a clerical staff (at the outlet of a lottery ticket shop) about the cards that are mostly purchased and bore successful results. Don’t buy them. Instead you should go for those that have witnessed losses (most of the times). They might be the upcoming winner. Also, if the ratio of winning is 1:5, buying 5 cards should have at least one winner.

Implementing strategies can help

Firstly, you should always buy more than one ticket. This is what most lottery winners recommend. With each ticket you buy, your possibilities are likely to get higher.

Secondly, you can join a lottery pool. Although, you will have to share the money with the other members of the pool (if you win), odds of becoming the winner does increase significantly.

Thirdly, you should not think that when the number of players is fewer, you tend to get closer to victory. This is nothing more than a misconception. “The fewer the players, the more the odds”, this situation holds true, if you are playing a raffle where a winning ticket is drawn from each Lottery ticket and every entry.

Spell possible without ‘I’ and ‘M’

When it comes to playing lottery games, winning or losing mostly depends on your luck. Remember, you should not consider yourself unlucky in any case. Always believe that you Eurolotto can. One day, people might consider your success story for setting an example. Nothing is impossible. All you need is get going.
