Most people dream big when they play lotteries. They tend not to use common sense when playing thus end up spending their fortune on tickets that are worthless. Using favorite or random numbers, marking the cars in a pattern or playing quick picks will make you lose even before buying a ticket. The following are ways of increasing your chances of winning lotteries.
Playing same numbers
Most people usually get impatient and start to change numbers on each game, they skip some games or quit playing. Using this system will raise your winning odds, but you have to understand the way this works. Also, ensure you first set a budget. It is advisable to be realistic and play what is affordable to you. If you play only once a week, then choose the day that is least busy to go for the tickets.
You should check your numbers so that if for instance, you play twelve numbers, then you pick the one that mostly turns up during the drawings. Get somewhere to write down the times every number comes up. You will notice patterns of good numbers and eliminate the bad ones. You then pick out the wheel and spread your good numbers evenly.
Decide on how many times you would like to play in a week. If in a week, you choose to play two or three times, then do not skip, stick to that. This will certainly increase your chances of winning.
Distributing numbers evenly
When playing a six number game, it is advisable to use three low and three high ones. If a game has forty numbers, its low is one through twenty and its high twenty-one through forty. This will increase your winning chances dramatically.
Wheeling the numbers
Wheel the numbers you choose and if you get a sequence of 23-24-25 place the numbers in another spot. 3 or 4 together rarely comes up. For every game, play these same numbers. Do not be impatient and change these numbers because, by the time you do, your numbers show up. It happens a lot.
If winning is your obsession, use one system and be patient. Soon enough you will start winning lots of tickets. The wheeling system is the most popular among serious lottery gamers, and they cost less than random tickets. Next time you go to play, use one.
