How To Win Lotto: Three Common Mistakes
Did you know many of the techniques that people use to select numbers can actually reduce their chance of winning the lottery? This is a list of things not to do:
#1. Picking all the lottery numbers using birthdays. If someone was born on the 18th of the month, they then pick the number 18 for the lottery. The mistake comes if all of the lottery numbers are picked using birthdays.
There are only 31 days in a month, so if you use this method to pick all your lottery numbers the highest number you would pick is 31 and most lotteries have 49 numbers. Don’t forget about the other 18 numbers from 32 to 49.
#2. Picking a number series, or ordered pattern. Any series like 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, or like 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, multiple of 5 series like 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, picking all even numbers like 2, 6, 10, 28, 36, 44 or all odd numbers 1, 7, 15, 23, 35, 41.
If lotto numbers followed a pattern then anyone who studied the lottery would be able to win the jackpot every week. Lotto numbers do not follow any pattern but come out of the machine in a completely random order. The chances of numbers ever being drawn in any type of logical series are incredibly low.
#3. Picking “lucky” numbers. The truth is there are no lucky numbers, yet every week thousands of people continue to pick “lucky number 7″ or any other number they believe to be lucky. Some pick numbers that have been drawn recently believing that they will be drawn again soon, while others pick numbers that have not been drawn for a long time believing it’s time that they were drawn again.
