# 5 Strategies on How To Pick Lottery Numbers That Win

Most lotto players don’t know how to pick lottery numbers that win because they believe its sheer luck picking random numbers, birthdays, anniversaries, holidays or quick pick. The odds are so high using these methods that it’s rare anyone would hit the jackpot this way.

The average lotto player picks numbers and combinations that never come up, so when you learn to avoid this way of playing you’ll increase your chances of winning. There are people who have spent a fortune on quick pick tickets just to get some free tickets which will never be winners.

Knowing the 5 strategies to win the lottery takes less tickets compared to random number picks.

1- Eliminate the bad numbers-It’s impossible to eliminate all the bad numbers, but if you do your homework and study the patterns of the past twelve to fifteen drawings of the game you want to play, you’ll be able to cut 80% of bad numbers that never come up. Type your game in the search engine and pull up the past winning combinations. Make a chart in a spread sheet or on paper and make an X for each number that was drawn over the past several weeks. When you’re finished you’ll see a unique pattern of the hot numbers. (ones that have come up often)

2- Balance the combinations-There are thousands of combinations that people use such as, 12-13-14-15-19-21 that never come up or all high numbers such as 33-35-38-39-40-41. When you stop using combinations such as these, your odds will improve. Also, using all odd or all even numbers rarely hit making your chances slim. Using triples is a disadvantage because they seldom hit, but a combination with doubles is good as they come up quite often.

3- Hot numbers versus cold numbers-A hot number is on a winning streak, if you look at the winning combinations for the past several draws you’ll notice certain numbers have hit in most drawings. Those are the good ones to play and the cold numbers which haven’t come up are bad numbers, but they are due to come up. The problem playing them is you don’t know which ones are due so it’s best not to play them unless you see from fifteen drawings ago, some of the cold numbers were hitting quite often.

4- Using a system that wins-There is a way to get multiple winning tickets by using a system to balance out your combinations. So you must choose a special set of numbers such as twelve in a group. Those are the only twelve numbers you’ll play on your tickets and you need to know how to wheel the numbers so if four or five numbers come up from your special set of numbers, you’ll have multiple winning tickets.

5- Playing the same set of numbers –You must stick to the same set of twelve numbers for each drawing because they will eventually come up. When you mark your tickets, use the same ones until you hit the jackpot. There are people who have changed them and their original numbers came up. Also, set a budget and stick to it and play consistently. If you plan on playing once a week be sure to do that. There have been players who missed a week and their numbers came up. One guy missed and had all the numbers for a jackpot winning.

If you learn how to pick lottery numbers that win by following these 5 strategies, you’ll start seeing multiple winning tickets.
