How to Improve Your Chances of Winning the LotteryAuthor: Professor Dolph
The idea of winning the lottery has become almost a universal dream around the world. Most players buy $5 or $10 in Quick Picks on the way home from work or while they're at the store. This represents the vast majority of lottery ticket sales. But, these players haven't done anything to improve their chances of winning the lottery.
These people are playing what is called Full Odds. For example, in the Lotto Texas 6/54 Lottery, the odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 25,827,165. This is an example of Full Odds. So, they're going to have to be one very lucky Texan to win the lottery. How lucky?
Well, this statement is probably going to disturb some of you. I firmly believe that everyone who plays is destined to win the lottery! This is true if they live long enough. So, how long is enough? Well, in Lotto Texas, the drawings are held twice a week. If the winning numbers never repeat, the last winner will jump for joy in about 250,000 years! Even if you were one of the real lucky players and your numbers came in 50 years from now, you wouldn't have much time left to benefit from your good fortune.
Lottery Players Dilemma
This is the lottery player's dilemma. How does the player win his lottery jackpot before he's dead or too old to enjoy it? This is the problem that serious lottery players attack every drawing. How do they reduce those 250,000 years of lottery drawings down to something reasonable?
The only hope that any serious lottery player has is to use some quality lottery software and their brains. The lottery software will help them develop and manage their lottery strategies to improve their chances of winning. So, if you intend to play the lottery and win in your lifetime, it would be wise to get some good (great) lottery software. Unfortunately, there are only maybe 3 or 4 decent lottery software packages on the market and the rest are a waste of time and money. So, caveat emptor my friend.
So, just for grins, How much do you think you can improve your chances of winning the lottery by using lottery software? Quite a bit, actually. I think most of you will be surprised at the dramatic effect even some rather simple lottery strategies can have.
Here's an example. Let's take a look at the TX654, Lotto Texas lottery. As I stated earlier, the odds of winning this lottery are one of the highest in the US; 1 in 25,827,165! But, you don't have to settle for that. Here's one very simple thing that you can do that has a dramatic effect on your odds of winning the lottery.
Improve Your Chances
Don't play!!! That's right; don't play the state's game. Instead, play your own game and call it the Lotto Texas 6/53. Simply remove one of the 54 numbers from play. Pick one of the 54 numbers that you believe will not be one of the winning numbers. The remaining 53 numbers become your reduced play list.
At first, this may not sound like a big deal but the effect is dramatic. This simple act can improve your chances of winning the lottery to 1 in 22,957,480 by removing 2,869,685 wagers from play! That's nearly 3 MILLION wagers!!! This has the effect of concentrating your dollars. Now, each dollar you spend has an effective value of $1.12.
Does this mean you are going to win the lottery? Not necessarily. But, using lottery strategies like these means that your odds of winning the lottery are better than everyone else playing Lotto Texas. Here's an interesting point. If everyone playing Lotto Texas used this strategy in the next drawing, the state lottery officials would be scratching their heads the following day and wondering why the payout suddenly jumped 10 above normal.
I know that many of you are already asking this question, What happens if you pick one of the 6 winning lottery numbers by accident? Great question! All I can say is, 'Whoops.' Yes, it happens, but, how often? Remember, in each Lotto Texas 6/54 lottery drawing, only 6 winning lottery numbers are chosen, leaving 48 lottery numbers that are not chosen! Your chances of picking one of those 48 non-winning numbers are very good. In fact, you should be able to do that over 95of the time.
So, over the long haul, this lottery strategy will work in 19 out of 20 drawings. As a result, you can improve your chances of winning the lottery in 19 drawings but not in 1 drawing. All things considered, not a bad deal.
