Choosing the Best Lottery Numbers
The sometimes-billion dollar prizes that are awarded to players of these games makes finding the best lottery numbers an important item on punters’ to-do lists these days. Even when taxes on these extraordinary amounts are factored in, the amounts of money on offer are truly life-changing ones, and many people are heading online to try and find the formula for choosing numbers that gets them a little bit closer to the money.
The Secret to Winning More Lotteries
While there is no clear-cut strategy that guarantees the win, there are a number of options available for those interested in increasing their wins to explore. Which one a punter selects is not the most important factor, apparently, but, according to experts studying the trends of individuals who do well in these games by selecting the best lottery numbers, consistency is vital. Once a player’s numbers have been chosen it is important that he or she continues to make use of that same combination. Players are thus advised to carefully consider their options and then select the five numbers they wish to play from the pool of 69 for the white balls, and one for the Powerball option from a pool of 29.
Strategies for Choosing Winning Numbers
The first option players have when it comes to choosing the best lottery numbers is the quick pick. This requires nothing very much from the player beyond handing the money over for a ticket and allowing a computer programme to select numbers on their behalf. Lottery experts are not crazy about this method of selection, even though around 70% of winners have made use of it in the United States of America according to FOX25 News Boston.
Some players feel the best lottery numbers are those that are linked to significant dates, and none more so than the birthdays of loved ones. Players very often make use of their children’s; sibling’s or family members’ dates of birth, and this method does provide the chance to incorporate not only the day and date but the year as well if the player wishes to do so.
Less sentimental players can access the best lottery numbers according to analyses available online. According to LottoNumbers.com, the best lottery numbers are 29; 20; 18; 6 and two, as these are the ones most commonly drawn. The Powerball number that shows up most frequently is 26.
Simply buying a huge amount of tickets is the solution for some, and, although making use of this strategy requires players to have some money in the bank to begin with, an analysis by David Goldman, CNN, has revealed that a cool $229 million dollars would be left over if a player were to play a ticket on every conceivable number combination. Unfortunately $584 million dollars would be required to do so. Players do not have to cover every possible number combo however, and even moderately increasing the amount of tickets purchased can increase the odds that the numbers on their tickets will be the ones drawn.
