The jackpot shouldn't be the overriding factor in deciding which lottery to bet on, however. The odds are also of critical importance. If, for example, you bet on the biggest lottery of them all, MegaMillions, where the jackpot can sometimes exceed half a billion US dollars, you'll be facing odds of 302,575,350 to one. Austrian Lotto, where the highest jackpot to date is approx. $14 million, might seem small in comparison until you realise the odds are just 8,145,060 to one – a difference of over 290 million for just $2 a game!
Imagine instead of the standard amount of numbers you could get a special bet that lets you pick even more numbers. Well, with Lottoland you can do just that. It's called a system bet and betting in this fashion allows you to select more numbers than the standard amount, in multiple combinations for a given draw – increasing the chances of a win dramatically.
Select numbers that are drawn frequently. If you notice that a few numbers stand out for being drawn significantly more often than the others, consider including them in your pick. Be aware, though, that several other people will be trying this tactic; if you win with frequently picked numbers, you might be at a greater risk of having to share the prize with other winners.
