Feeling Lucky: 4 Top Tips for How to Play the Lottery


Do you consider yourself a lucky person? If so, you might have tried your luck at the lottery in the past. It can obviously be quite difficult to take home the big prize at the end of the day, but the potential reward makes it well worth the effort.

Many people aren’t aware that there are a few strategies you can implement that can better your odds of winning when playing. Do you want to know how to play the lottery the smart way? Read on and we’ll walk you through everything you need to know.

  1. Find a Way to Buy More Tickets

At the end of the day, the lottery is nothing but a numbers game. There are a certain amount of tickets out there, and one will be the winning ticket. Your goal in trying to increase your odds of winning will be to make it more likely that the winning ticket will be in your possession.

How can you do that? The simple truth of the matter is that you need to have more tickets in your possession. Each new lottery ticket you have in your hands is a higher chance of one of those tickets being the winning choice.

This may sound obvious or even frustrating. If you could afford hundreds of lottery tickets, you wouldn’t need to be playing the lottery, right? Well hold on, and take a moment to think of some more creative ways you might be able to get more tickets into your hands.

Consider, as some have done in the past, forming a lottery syndicate. This is a group of people who pull together resources to buy lottery tickets as a group. This will mean you need to split the eventual rewards equally as well, but if the payout is big enough this can still be a huge life-changer for everyone involved.

Bringing together the resources of others to get more tickets in your possession is just one way to better increase your shot at winning.

  1. Be Smart with Your Numbers

Most lottery games require you to pick a string of numbers. Yes, these are random numbers, but picking smart can still help to increase your odds.

Take a look at the take 5 winning numbers and see what you are able to observe about the winning combinations. One thing you’ll notice is that there are no winning combinations that have consecutive numbers.

This is because the odds of consecutive numbers popping up are very, very low. It’s not impossible, but it is very unlikely that this will occur and it’s better to go a different route. For the same reason, it’s a good idea to keep your choices random and not try to establish any pattern with your choices.

For example, picking a number combo like 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 is probably a bad choice.

It also can be a good idea to pick numbers that are over 31. Many people use their birthday or that of a loved one as their ‘lucky numbers.’ Choosing above 31 won’t really increase your odds of winning, but it will increase the odds that you’ll be able to share the prize with fewer people if you do win.

  1. Don’t Be Afraid of Smaller Lotteries

Many people see the huge millions of dollars available in big state lotteries and go directly for those games. The competition for these games is also insane and unreasonable. Due to all of the competition, the chance of winning is much lower.

That’s why it can be a good idea to play in much less popular games. Yes, the winnings in these games are much lower, but the chances of your victory are much higher in comparison. Superlotto and Eurojackpot are two examples of less popular lotteries that might be worth looking into.

All lotteries are a numbers game, and doing anything to increase your odds at victory can be considered a good strategy. 

  1. Don’t Follow the Rush

We’ve all seen the frenzy that occurs when news gets out about a huge jackpot. When the lottery builds up to something like $300 million, it becomes a national news story. Word of the big prize is everywhere, from the television to the radio to the office water cooler.

It can be tempting to get swept up into all this excitement and run out and buy a ton of lottery tickets. This, however, would not be too wise. While it can be fun to go after the big prize, it’s also the time you’ll have the least chance of winning.

More attention means more ticket buyers, and that means your chances of actually winning are much lower than they’ve ever been. If you really want to increase your odds of winning the lottery, you need to do the opposite of what everyone else is doing. Buy tickets when there isn’t much attention or when the prize is somewhat lower.

That’ll increase your chances of winning and make it just a little more likely that you’ll be a new millionaire come morning. 

How to Play the Lottery the Smart Way

Looking to change your life overnight? Knowing how to play the lottery the smart way can help to increase your odds of winning and keep you away from money-losing enterprises. The above information can be invaluable in getting you on the right path to lottery-winning success.

It’s all luck at the end of the day, but taking the proper steps can only help.
