Books have been written on how you might win the lottery – or increase your chances of doing so. Don’t spend your money on them, though, they aren’t worth it.
There are, however, one or two ways you can improve your chances of not sharing a large win should you be lucky enough to get one.
But first off; make sure you realise that only 50% of the lottery money comes back in prizes, so you’re on a hiding to nothing from the outset. This is not a shrewd gambler’s bet – ever.
The biggest jackpots you can win in the UK generally come from the Euro millions lottery. There are up to six sets of lucky numbers for the EuroMillions lottery each time and your chances of getting all six of your chosen numbers drawn are a staggering one in 116.5 million.
So it’s important that, if you do win, you win the sort of amount that will change your life – rather than one which has been watered down by a long way. For example, with the 9th draw of the National Lottery back in 1995, there were a record 133 winners sharing the £16 million jackpot. So why was this exactly? Well if you choose numbers that are likely to be picked by other players, it’s more likely your win will be diluted.
So it’s important not to try and better your overall odds of winning, but to increase your chances of winning larger amounts when you do win. And this, in turn ,calls for complete random selection of numbers (preferably by the machines rather than picking out ages, birthdays etc., or even trying to space your selections across the card – simply because this is what other entrants do too).
And although it goes without saying; remember that just because a number has or hasn’t come up often - this doesn’t affect, in any way way, its chances of being drawn again.
