Do you pick special dates that meant something to you? Or do you just do random quick picks? I guess it depends on what kind of lottery game I am playing. For pick three and four numbers it could be me seeing a simple sequence of numbers like the total of a receipt or my gas mileage. I do have some favorites that I play on certain occasions like my dad’s birthday or our special “143” code. Some people really do believe that certain numbers will bring good fortune like 777 or 1234. Sales do actually increase on certain calendar dates like Friday the thirteenth many times the combination of 1313 for a pick 4 number has been sold out. One thing that a professional gambler will do is to look at the statistics of what number combinations that are most commonly drawn. Do I believe that some numbers are commonly picked over others, yes I do! I often find myself looking at what numbers commonly come up and that sometimes will sway me to choose another number to add to my already growing list. Yes I have a list of numbers when I play. Have I ever forgotten to get a certain number and regretted it? Yes I have!
Often when I am in line waiting for tickets will I hear a number and am like “ooh I like that number”. Many times I have bought that ticket that someone refused due to it was not the numbers they asked for. Sometimes I get lucky and sometimes it wins nothing at all and I got suckered into that extra ticket. I think that happens more than people think. I know I am not the only one that does that thinking it means that it must be a winner because someone passed it by.
How do you pick your numbers? Do you believe that there can be lucky numbers out there that are made for everyone?

A video of the results of the Wednesday, October 29, 2014, Powerball Lottery drawing. Tonight’s Powerball jackpot is an annuitized $142,000,000 or a cash value of $89,300,000.
Is it really true that you can raise your chances of winning? Is that even possible or am I just gullible and someone should call me so I can buy that bridge off them? Like do I buy a ticket at a special time of the day? Do I buy from the guy from the special down town liquor store? What would make my odds better? Let’s take Powerball for example, you pick 5 numbers out of 59 to choose from, then pick 1 Powerball number out of 35 then you have the option of POWERPLAY which will multiply your winnings by the number that is pulled during the drawing. That’s a lot of possibilities. Well one way to increase your odds is to pay for the POWERPLAY option. This will increase any winning ticket you would have.
If you are serious about winning the lottery you really need to think like a professional gambler and look at what would give you the best return and has the least house advantage. You want to maximize your chances at winning and minimize your losses or risk. Progressive Jackpots actually have a better return per ticket and a lower house edge.
Some say picking numbers higher than the number 31 will increase your odds. Reasoning behind that is most people pick a date that is special to them. By choosing more numbers over 31 that will increase your odds at being a sole winner and you would not have to share the jackpot. Looking for lotteries that have fewer numbers to choose from is also said to be a way to increase your odds at winning.
I know what I have heard many times that has worked for them. That is having the ticket quick picked by the machine. Many say that if they are meant to win then it should not matter if they manually choose their numbers or if they let the machine pick them for them.
So what do you think is the best odds at getting a winning jackpot ticket? We would love to know!
