Most people that play the lottery will either choose completely random numbers, or their favourite numbers such as birthdays and other numbers that are significant in their lives. But you do get some that will like to work out strategies, and will go to great lengths to come up with what they believe will be the strategy that provides them with winning numbers each time they play.
If you look around the internet there is no shortage of people trying to sell their lotto strategies. A lot of them will make claims that are hard to verify and seem very hard to believe also. As the saying goes, “if it’s seems too good to be true then it probably is”. But this is not to say that all lotto strategies are worthless or scams. There are some available that will improve your chances, but only very slightly, and none that are certain to make you win every time you play.
The best lotto strategies are based around probability, and will require you to enter the winning numbers into the ‘system’ that the strategy is devised around for a long time. This will then allow the system to make a determination on the next numbers that will come up. Each different system will have their own algorithm for working out future numbers, so it is hard to determine which one is the most accurate.
But as you can probably guess, any strategy that is based around a system like this is going to be very far from reliable. While mathematical probabilities may be increased ever so slightly, your chances when lotteries use their random number generators to choose the winning numbers for each game will never increase significantly enough for you to start winning on a regular basis.
Go with what works for you
You can end up spending a lot of money on the strategies and systems that people sell. You will find that these systems will often include books, charts and software programs that all inflate the price of the product, but will certainly not deliver the vastly improved chances of you winning the lottery jackpot as most of them claim.
The best strategy for anyone to adopt when playing the lottery is simply one that works for them. If you feel that using completely random numbers each time you play has delivered good results in the past then stick with this. If you like to play certain numbers that you like each time, and they have been lucky for you in the past, then stay with this.
At the end of the day, playing the lotto is all down to chance. But there are still those that swear by the strategies that they use, and this may well be because the strategy has worked out fairly well for them. But would the same strategy work just as well for somebody else? Maybe, maybe not; chance will determine that.
The best way to see which strategy works best for you is to run two or three different strategies together and monitor them over time. If you see one particular strategy doing better than the others you are trying then keep it going and see if it continues to work well for you. But never get into the mindset that any particular strategy will work wonders for you, as it very likely won’t.
