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.
To illustrate this point, let’s say an average lottery player spends $5 per week on Powerball tickets. That’s $20 each month or $240 spent on lottery tickets every year. This person buys lottery tickets every month of every year for 25 years, as my grandfather did throughout his adult life. The amount spent on lottery tickets over a lifetime is $6,000, which surely could have been put to better use. Instead, that $6,000 disappeared, and never won any jackpot big enough to cover the player’s expenses.
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.

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.
