Lottery Strategies

In this section we shall discuss the different strategies for playing the lottery games. Although everybody dreams about winning the big prize and getting rich but you must also realize that chance of winning the big prize is one out of several million.

If we start making combinations of 6 numbers out of a set of 49 numbers,  we shall make 13,983,816 combinations. Therefore the chances of winning the jackpot is one out of 13,983,816.  But the good thing about lottery is that you can still win some money if you match 3, 4 or 5 numbers. There are some smaller games like Pick 3 and Pick 4  that have better odds of winning.  Pick 3 has 1,000  combinations and Pick4 has 10,000 combinations. You can’t win millions on these two small games but they have better odds to win small prizes of $500 to $5000. Lottery administrations give you a chance to play your own numbers by filling up lottery cards and running them through the machine or let the lottery machine pick random numbers for you also known as quick picks.
