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.
* Lotto's match-5 and match-4 prizes are pari-mutuel. A pari-mutuel prize is determined by dividing the prize pool equally among the winners, and may vary for each drawing. Lotto is structured to average approximately $2,000 and $50 for the match 5 and match 4 prize levels respectively. The jackpot prize is also a pari-mutuel prize and will be divided equally among all jackpot-winning tickets. If the jackpot is not won, the prize is carried over and added to the jackpot prize pool of the next drawing.
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.
That said there are plenty of ways to increase your chances of winning by tilting the odds in your favour. With that in mind we've compiled seven sure-fire ways of increasing your chances. Forget positive thinking, so-called laws of attraction or any of that sort of stuff. There's nothing mystical here, rather a set of strategies which stand up to scientific rigour.

I won 4 out of 5 day before yesterday for the first time.  Ive picked 3 several times. but this was a fluke, I was driving to the line (MO, I live in ARkansas) just after going to the dentist, and was think about my dad alot, he use to buy me an ice cream after I went to the dentist. I was looking at my pick 4 work out and his birthday popped out at me.  So I added his birthday to the Show-me 5 ticket I only had 3 picks on, from my lotto logic program ( not lottery logics ) That seems the only times I win, seeing a number a couple of times in a day, then playing it.
