*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.

`Winning a lottery can be a dream come true, of winning millions of dollars with no efforts at all. There are no systems or strategies for picking the winning numbers and the factor that governs the win is luck! If luck is on your side you will surely win the lottery. There are some systems that can be used to pick numbers, but these systems are not foolproof and they just make the selection easy and do not guarantee winning. Let us take a look at some methods that you can use to pick numbers.`

One more method of choosing lottery number is randomizing the selection. You do not have to think much and just choose any number of your choice. And anyhow lottery is a game of choosing random numbers. If you are allowed to choose any number of lottery numbers then see that you do not choose too many numbers. Because chance of winning is inversely proportional to the number of numbers you choose. Now, you may also use special numbers for picking the numbers. These special numbers can be anything, like your age, your daughter's/son's age, your mobile number, your house number, your husband's/wife's age, etc.

`In 2008, there were 1.03 deaths per 100 million vehicle miles traveled in the United States. Based on these odds, a lottery player living a single mile from a store selling lottery tickets is four times more likely to die in a car accident driving to the store than to win the Powerball jackpot. Winning doesn’t seem too likely now, does it? Keep those odds in mind the next time you drive to the store to buy lottery tickets!`

Buying lottery tickets is not an efficient way to increase your personal wealth. For those of you who still think you can beat the odds, there actually is a strategy. The single surefire way to win money from playing the Powerball lottery is to buy 39 tickets, each one hand-picked to contain one of the unique Powerball numbers between 1 and 39. You are then guaranteed to at least win the $3 prize. Sure, it may have cost you $39, but this is one way to “win” the lottery.

**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.**

`Experts therefore encourage lottery players to use Quickies, which are picked completely at random by a computer using an algorithm known as a random number generator. Random number generator (RNG) technology is the exact method used to generate random numbers on lottery terminals and is also employed by online gaming companies to ensure fully random results, for example to ensure random shuffles in card games.`

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.

**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.**

*Your guess can contain one number higher than 15, but it's better to stick with the numbers 1-15. Why? Nine out of ten delta numbers will be 15 or less. This means that at least half the time, there will be no delta number greater than 15 in a given six-number-pick. As there are more possible numbers greater than 15 than there are numbers less than 15, its just better strategy to focus your guesses on those cases where the odds are in your favor.*
