Still not deterred from buying a few lottery tickets? You aren’t alone. Millions of people buy lottery tickets every week and don’t expect to win anything back; it’s just a game to them. Heck, I even buy a lottery ticket once in a while, just for kicks. But I never expect to actually win the jackpot, and I would never spend money I don’t have to try to beat such grand odds.
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.
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.
