Tips to Win the Lottery

Don’t use family birthdays – this is a frequent error!
Sure it lacks uniqueness, but more than that, it diminishes your odds of winning the lottery. Just think about it — the days and months only go up to 31 and 12. So even if you do win the lottery using your birth numbers, the odds are you’ll have to divide the winnings with additional individuals. After all, everyone’s birthday begins with 19 (and anyone who doesn’t should not be playing the lottery). The same applies to buying a ticket when there’s a greater prize — more people participate, thus the odds are more people win. Let’s be honest you don’t want to have to share your winnings with strangers anymore than you want to hear from your second cousin twice removed after a 20-year quiet.
Don’t make a gorgeous pattern!
Diagonal lines, straight lines, star shapes, boxes, zig-zags – putting this on your slip is foolish. You could think you’re smart, but again, you and thousands of other people will have the same notion.
Check ball frequency!
They tell us it’s all random, but undoubtedly, balls have a habit of getting selected more frequently than others. Find out which ones emerge most often while making your choices. Number seven and multiples of it are common selections. And appropriately so, number seven comes in the list of top 10 winning numbers in both the South African and UK lotteries.
Check the results!
You’d be amazed how many individuals don’t verify whether they’ve won the lottery. Moreover, winning tickets must be claimed within 180 days following the draw. Otherwise, the money goes straight to the Lotto’s Good Causes fund. A ticket for £9,476,995 was previously issued in this method, and it was the 24th prize, over a million pounds to remain unclaimed.
Become a worker!
Camelot just produced a list of the top Lottery-winning professions. Builders and employees have been the largest beneficiaries, followed by administrators and managers. The unluckiest in the Top 40? Poor funeral directors.
