Playing Lotto to Win

Posted on May 28, 2009 @ 7:33 pm

Many people, if not most, would not consider gambling a worthwhile subject in financial planning. But with millions of people involved in all sorts of gaming, and billions of dollars, euros and pouns at stake, why not? Many people gamble just for amusement; but what if you want to gamble to actually produce income?

Lotto is one of the most popular forms of gaming. Although no one has yet perfected the technique or the formula to second guess the winning combination, many have managed to make decent earnings by guessing the probable winning combinations. Some rely on mathematics, while some rely on intuition. The best chance you have of cracking the winning combination depends on how you use the most vital ingredient required for every day living – commonsense.

Rather than focusing on expensive strategies that use random combinations, you should focus on possible winning combinations. This can be accomplished by simply categorizing winning combinations. If you determine, based on historical data, that a future jackpot will have mostly numbers from 1 to 9, then you should have combination of numbers that will include at least four numbers from 1 to 9. This way you will not have to buy more number of tickets to increase your odds of hitting the big prize. By not buying too many tickets you not only save money, but also have enough to play another day (which might prove to be your lucky day).

Playing in a syndicate can also be a good idea, but don’t forget– you have to share any winnings with all the members of the syndicate and this means you still have to keep your job and report back to office on the following Monday. Categorizing numbers does not require a lot of mental ability. What you do is target a group of numbers and try out different combinations. If, for example, you conclude that 1 to 9 may be the combination that you need to focus on, then your combination should be 1,4,6,9,26,30 or 1,2,5,7,36,39 or 1,3,8,11,29,45. Now with these numbers you will note that your focus is on numbers from 1 to 9 and the other numbers are ones which have an outside chance of being drawn. With this system you may not necessarily hit the jackpot but you will surely win decent sums of money to finance your future games, and if and when Lady Luck does happen to smile on you, you can forget going to work on the following Monday.

The commonsense approach requires that you play knowledgeably. If you are targeting the group from 1 to 9 it would be utterly foolish to draw four numbers in a series like 1,2,3,4 or 6,7,8,9 as the first four numbers; by doing this your chances of hitting the jackpot or any small prize become zero. It means you have lost the game even before the winning numbers are drawn. This is akin to literally throwing away your fortune.

So, how to win at lotto? Well, the best strategy is zeroing in on the most probable winning combinations and then use common sense to arrive at the combination of six numbers. If you follow this practice every time you play, our chances of hitting the jackpot go up dramatically. If you are going to gamble, do so intelligently, and play to win.
