|Pick 6: Football - Horse Racing - Mega Millions Six|
We all dream of winning the lottery one day and why not?
Someone has to win, why not you. The most common form of lotto is the pick 6. You need to pick 6 winning numbers in order to claim or share the top prize. There may be consolation prizes for matching less numbers. You usually need at least 3 correct numbers to collect a prize.
Powerball, Mega Millions, Euro Millions, Hot Lotto Sizzler, Megabucks, all varieties of Lotto and Super Lotto, all varieties of Pick 6 and various special lotteries with big prizes such as Mix & Match, Super Plus and Wild Card.
Some lotteries use a special ball , some call it a gold ball , which has different or special payouts for matching this ball only or with a combination of the other numbers. To win the jackpot you need to match the winning numbers and the gold ball for instance.
These are the lotteries where you can win huge prizes and where some of the smaller prizes can be very attractive too. Here is some information on the lottery to help improve your chances of winning.
The United States has 43 States with lotteries, The Mega Millions being the King. 130 State/major Lottery combinations, 35 different lottery formats, 15 different Lotto games, 13 different Pick 6 games, 3 big inter-state games, 4 unusual games, many different prize structures and rollover rules.
You have to play if you want to win!
This is a very common slogan used by lotteries and football pools companies alike. What this slogan is saying is you can't dream of winning the lottery or the pools unless you part with your beer tokens. Of course they are right. If you never buy a ticket you can never win.
But how many times do you dream of winning? Do you have to win every week to be happy? Of course not.
You only have to win once. So you only have to buy one ticket, at some time in the future to be able to legitimately dream of winning a huge jackpot.
You only need one ticket to strike it rich!!
Your chance of winning a share in a big jackpot prize is very low. In the UK national lottery (now named Lotto) your chances of having a share of a top jackpot, by getting 6 balls out of 6 representing the numbers 1 to 49 are 1 in 13,983,816.
Now most weeks people win, often several people share the jackpot. So it does happen. But if you staked £5 every week on those odds you would not have a realistic expectation of winning a share in a jackpot in a normal lifetime. But you knew that anyway, didn't you?
So you might as well get used to the idea that winning the lottery is unlikely. But it's also nice to have a dream, it is good for your mental health. So here is the secret: Buy a ticket. One day. Maybe tomorrow. Maybe never, but it's certainly fun to try.
How to increase your chances of winning the
lottery, secrets revealed.
One way is to play less often but play the same number of tickets overall. 5 lines played monthly in one draw have a better chance than 1 line played weekly for 5 weeks. That probably made your head hurt for a second, but work it through. It's not quite as much fun as entering every draw though.
The more obvious way to increase your chances of winning the lottery is to simply buy more tickets. It's easy to see that if you buy two tickets, you double your chances. So that 1 in nearly 14 million, becomes a much better 2 in 14 million, which is the same as 1 in 7 million.
Don't forget though, that there are prizes for matching 5 numbers out of 6, or 4 numbers or just 3. So your chances of winning the lottery aren't quite as bad as they look. Remember to have fun playing the lottery and only risk what you can afford to lose.Most frequent winning numbers
Hottest numbers? What are the hottest lotto numbers. Overall computer analysis of 10 million results shows that the hottest lotto numbers are: 7, 9, 27, 33
This is an interesting statistic which you could use to your advantage. Currently all play combinations should include one or more of these lucky numbers.
How to lose the lottery
The way to lose the lottery is to pick regular numbers and forget to buy a ticket. You will be crushed if those numbers were to come up. Some have reported beind suicidal, after not playing winning numbers in the lotto. It happens, not very often of course, because the odds are still 1 in 13,983,816 for any one series of numbers whether you buy a ticket from a witch with a black cat or don't because you broke a mirror the day of the drawing. Nothing can alter those odds, they are fixed.
But people have been in that situation of having regular numbers and not buying a ticket. It is a nightmare, divorces and murders might follow. Just avoid that grief, you don't need it. Neither do you need to be a regular loser. Just buy a ticket one day on a whim, pick some numbers with no significance (any set of numbers is equally unlikely to win) and you can dream that dream. And you know you might win. People do, it could be you. But you don't need to play it fifty or a hundred times every year for the rest of your life.
