```“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.

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.

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.

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.
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.
