How to Win Lotto – The Most Effective Way to Pick Your Winning Numbers

When you consider the potential multi-million dollar fortunes on offer, picking your lotto numbers can seem like a complicated and stressful affair. Nothing could be more rewarding than cashing in a one- or two-dollar lottery ticket for a million-dollar jackpot.

You only have to scan the daily tabloids or internet search engine listings to know that everyone and their dog possesses some unique method of busting the odds or predicting the winning numbers of any lottery in the world.

In spite of the enormous odds, and regardless of the type of prize you are seeking to win, you can always depend on three universal principles* or ‘laws’ every time you play lotto – anywhere, anytime. The most important of the three ‘laws’ is this…

Lottery Numbers Are Totally Random

Lotto is a game of chance based on a random selection of numbers. It is not possible to consistently and reliably predict a random event. Full stop. End of story. Grasp this concept, and you are well on your way to lotto success.

Consequently, do not concern yourself with coupon patterns, ‘hot’ numbers, frequency statistics or other implausible good luck charms. Although interesting, these ‘systems’ have absolutely no bearing on your ability to predict the winning numbers, nor your chances of winning a prize. A random selection of numbers can not, by definition, form a pattern.

I am yet to see any computer system or software package that can reliably and consistently predict the winning numbers of any lottery in the world. It just can’t be done, nor will it ever be possible. To this end, any product that claims to analyze patterns in actual lottery results or help you predict the winning numbers of your favorite lottery is a scam. If you just heard yourself say “No they’re not,” don’t bother reading on – you’re fooling yourself, and I don’t want to waste your time any further.

By all means, go ahead and have fun using these products to choose your weekly numbers. Just never bet your house on them.

So, what IS the most effective way to pick your winning numbers?

The answer is simple. Anyway you choose.

Your choice of selections has absolutely no bearing on the numbers which will be drawn this week, or any week for that matter. To suggest otherwise is to appear gullible and stupid.

If you want to know, I always choose my numbers randomly (it’s a function of the winlottosystems wheeling software I use) because it’s easy, and I don’t have to think.

Never Change Your Numbers?

This advice is dispensed about as frequently as a new system for picking this week’s lucky numbers is announced.

But seriously, should you change your numbers, or stick with the same numbers all the time (in case they are drawn)? It’s a good question, and one that vexes more lotto players than they care to admit.

Every successful lotto player I know has two very strong points to make in this regard:

– Lottery numbers are random, so it doesn’t matter if you change your numbers or not; and

– If you are inclined to remember numbers, you are encouraged to change your numbers often (so as to avoid the anguish of seeing a set of numbers you used to play come up this week).

For the record, the most successful lotto players I know change their numbers every 5 to 10 weeks, or so. Why? Just because they like to.

Now, For Some Fun

Below is a list of techniques and strategies that I know some of my most eccentric customers have used over the years to select their weekly ‘lucky’ numbers. They are fun, unique and often crazy, but there’s one thing I can’t say about them – they are no more effective at predicting the winning numbers than me chewing bubble gum to solve algebra!

– An elderly gentleman would hide a large number of tennis balls in his backyard, and then call on his faithful dog to fetch them, one at a time as he marked his coupon.

– A woman I once knew would place a piece of paper (with the numbers of her favourite lottery written all over it) on the bottom tray of her pet budgie’s cage and choose those numbers which were “hit” by the bird’s droppings!

– Many people use a familiar bingo ball or similar ‘barrel’ to pick their numbers.

– Some resort to throwing darts at a dart board with the numbers of their favourite lottery marked on a piece of paper attached to the front.

– A neighbour would often swing at a series of numbers golf balls, and those resting closest to the ‘pin’ would be this week’s lucky numbers!

I imagine for many people, this article may have challenged you to reconsider the efficacy of the latest lottery number picking system you recently devised or invested in. If so, my advice is, ask for your money back, and stick to something more FUN and certainly RANDOM!

Lottery Numerology – Is it Your Fate to Win the Jackpot?

Numerology is defined as The study of the occult meanings of numbers and their supposed influence on human life. If you believe in this, then you probably believe in lottery numerology. If so, then it stands to reason that your fate has already decided whether or not you will win a jackpot in your lifetime.

It’s pretty cool to believe that fate has already decided if you will win the lottery in the future. But first, you must find out which numbers you are destined to win with. That’s where lottery numerology comes in.

With numerology, you have to figure out which numbers are lucky for you. First, start with your birth date and birth month. So, for example, if you were born on the 29th of January, your first two numbers would be 1 and 29.

Beyond your birth numbers, you can choose other numbers which are lucky. These numbers would vary from person to person. Here are a few examples of numbers you could use and why they are lucky:

  • The number seven is considered to be lucky in the majority of the world.
  • The number 8 is considered so lucky in China that the Beijing Olympics started on August 8, 2008 (08/08/08)
  • In Chinese culture, the number nine is considered to be lucky because it is the highest of the single-digit numbers.
  • The number 21 is lucky for casino patrons because 21 equals Blackjack.

Therefore, if you consider the above numbers lucky and your birthday is on January 29, lottery numerology would suggest that your lotto fate would depend on the numbers 1, 7, 8, 9, 21, and 29. But, of course, lottery numerology is different for each individual and, so, numbers would depend upon their birthday and their own personal lucky numbers.

Can a Lottery Algorithm Help You Win a Random Jackpot?

By nature, lotteries are set up to be random. That is, each number has an equal chance at being drawn. Yet, there are many people that believe that there are lottery algorithms that can help you win the big jackpot. Is this for real? Can a lottery algorithm help you win a jackpot that is purportedly random?

First off, the definition of an algorithm is “a set of instructions for solving a problem.” In this case, the problem to be solved is how to win the lotto jackpot. If there is an algorithm for this, then that same algorithm should apply to other random events, such as a coin toss. You know that if you flip a coin, there is a 50-50 chance as to which side it would land on. So, said algorithm should be able to predict how many times that coin would land on heads if, say, it was flipped 100 times. But that sound preposterous, doesn’t it? So why should we believe it when it comes to lotteries?

There are many theories as to how to predict future lottery numbers. The most popular of the theories are the hot-number theory and the cold-number theory. I won’t explain the gist of the two theories, but I could assure you that they are just the way they sound. Think back to the coin toss. Would you bet that in the future, the coin would land on heads a lot more times than tails just because in the past few tosses, heads have been hot? No, of course not. Why? Because coin tosses are random, just as lottery balls coming out of the machine are random as well. No algorithm can predict future lottery numbers.
