Players can either choose their own six numbers (five regular and one Powerball) or have the computer terminals randomly pick numbers for them. If every number on your ticket matches the winning numbers in the order they are drawn, you win the jackpot prize. There are also smaller prizes if you only have some of the correct numbers. Each ticket costs the player $1.
The perfect mix. If you go deeper into different strategies and methods you will most certainly bump into the following fact: the equal pick of odd and even numbers is the winning combination. You can find these statistics everywhere. And exactly those statistics lead us to the conclusion that you have to choose 3 odd and 3 even numbers…Or 2 vs 3 (for lotteries where you have to choose 5 numbers)
Lotteries have often been called a “tax on the poor,” and for good reason. The majority of lottery ticket buyers are in the lower income tax brackets. Often less educated about finances and less likely to save money for retirement, these lottery players don’t view the expense of a few lottery tickets as a major cash outlay. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. In the long run, spending money on tickets that never win costs players more than just the face value of the tickets and prevents many people from ever getting out of debt.
Players should sign the back of their ticket for security purposes, secure their ticket and treat it as cash. We also recommend that players who believe they hold a Powerball, Mega Millions or Lotto jackpot-winning ticket contact the Lottery's headquarters immediately at 225-297-2000 to schedule a time to claim their prize and have their questions answered. This will facilitate a smooth prize payment process. Players who believe they hold a jackpot-winning ticket must bring the original ticket to the Lottery's corporate headquarters in Baton Rouge within 180 days of the drawing in which the prize was won for verification and any prize payment. The Lottery recommends that before coming to claim a jackpot prize, winners get financial advice so they fully understand the tax or other legal implications involved.

Your choice is the best choice! “I know best!” That same statement also applies to your lottery number picks. Don’t leave your luck in the hands of Faith. Take it in your own hands. Never rely on the Quick Pick. “Every time you buy a quick pick, you get a different set of numbers; therefore, your odds are always going to be at their worst in that particular game,” says Lustig, a guy who won the lottery 7 times.
“3 is the magic number!” In most cases, that’s not true. We have all heard that number 8 is the number of money, that 7 is an ancient lucky number etc. And because of exactly this reason (that we all have heard of those lucky numbers) we should avoid them. Stay away from common lucky numbers and patterns. The most typical pattern is the diagonal one.
This article focuses on the Powerball lottery, the largest lottery in the United States. Available in 42 states, Washington D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands, Powerball always has a jackpot of at least $20 million and has drawings twice a week. It is made up of five sets of 59 numerical white balls and one set of 39 red “Powerballs,” which make up the winning number combinations for each drawing.
If I were to ask an accredited mathematician "how do I win the lottery?" the answer would be that the numbers I choose wouldn't really matter much, it's simply a matter of defying the high odds that are stacked against me. According to the laws of probability all the numbers have exactly the same chance of being drawn. However, as we've seen, there are ways of reducing these odds. Probability also dictates that these odds will drop even further the more you play. If you play for a given week then you have just one chance to win against high odds - but if you play every week, the overall lottery odds don't change but the chances of you beating them does. Hence the reason you hear so many stories in the news about winners who played the lottery for years before finally hitting the jackpot.

The catch is that, when you do this, the price also rises since, in essence, you're going from buying one game to multiple bets. Depending on how many numbers you pick you're basically going from a fistful to an armful right up to a potential wheelbarrow full of lottery tickets – so obviously you'll also have more chances of winning, but of course you're going to have to pay more too. For this very reason system bets are very popular with lotto syndicates who can split the cost among members.

This question is without a doubt the number one topic in our industry. It's also the subject of various "secret systems", scams, tacky books and "special reports" – all of which are total bunk. The simple fact of the matter is there is no guaranteed way to win the lottery. If there were then lotteries would have absolutely no reason to exist (and I'd be sprawled out on the beach at some exclusive resort in Fiji sipping a mojito right about now).
No-one can teach you how to pick winning lottery numbers but you can be shown how to win the lottery by playing with more numbers that you are usually allowed.

1,2,3. Have you ever thought of putting consecutive numbers down? If your answer is no, then you are exactly like most of the lottery players. But you will be surprised to tell you that drawing consecutive numbers actually do happen and it happens pretty often. If you want to try this try with two numbers like 32,33 – the odds will be in your favor. You can also try another sequence like 9 and 18 (9×2) or the Fibonacci sequence – 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34.
   So far I have hit 4 numbers plus the Powerball number twice in the POWERBALL game for over $60,000.00 in winnings and recently my MILLION DOLLAR CLUB members were treated to $21,348.00 in winnings in the Mega Millions game. With a track record like this, it's just a matter of time until I hit the Jackpot, and when I do, I plan to see all my Million Dollar Club members in the winner's circle right next to me. If you are ready to win $1 Million or more while playing only 45 total combos, then I invite you to join this exclusive Club today.
Whenever you come across people who claim to have a formula for winning the lottery it almost always comes to so-called "systems" of numbers. An example might be picking numbers in a specific shape that can be seen visually on the ticket itself. These vary from straight lines to complex patterns (from our own research we've seen that our own players generally prefer straight lines). Picking numbers in this way doesn't really do anything, however, since the results of the draw will always be random whether you opt to play a straight line or a pretty butterfly.
Choose a lucky number and stick with it. Some people choose a number sequence that they consider lucky and play it over and over again until it comes up a winner -- if it ever does. For instance, if you’re favorite number sequence is your favorite number, combined with your birthday and your spouse’s lucky number and birthday (3-6-11-9-10-31), then you would play this number religiously every time you play the lottery. Then, you wait for your number to come up a winner. This could be considered making your own luck.
