How to Pick Winning Numbers for Powerball or Any Lottery
Let us be honest if you could pick winning lottery numbers consistently. You would play every day in between sipping margaritas and picking out your new car for the week. I know, I certainly would. I would be away on my private island playing some more. So, is there a way of picking the winning lottery numbers? The real answer is we can improve our chances by applying some mathematically based lottery strategies!
Fact is, lotteries are, for the most part, random; therefore, quite difficult to guess winning numbers. (Notice I said “for the most part,” we will revisit this.) If it were not true, well again, you would be on another Island counting your winnings. So, lets us be clear it is not easy to win a jackpot as some would have you believe. But you must have a lottery strategy.
Let’s take a practical, logical approach. Because it is difficult to guess the winning numbers does not mean it is impossible. We can improve our odds by having a strategy.
Let’s get started by organizing your lotto strategy. I have broken it into three sections:
- Lottery Game Selection
- Lottery Number Selection
- Wheeling Systems Selection
Lottery Game Selection – Lottery Odds
Lottery game selection, as well as odds, are essential. They tell us what we can expect to spend before we win. It is important to know the odds of winning casino games such as Blackjack, Craps, Poker, and many other casino games. Professional gamblers need to know the odds of the games they play because they know how likely they are to win.
The same goes for Lotteries. We must know the odds of winning the lottery. This allows us to place our bets accordingly. Most players have no idea of their lottery’s odds, figure the odds are so high that they don’t care. The large jackpots attract them as we all are.
The odds are important if you want to win the lottery (Powerball Systems)
Be familiar with the odds if you hope to win the lottery. Knowing the odds gives you the choice of where to spend your money best. If you don’t, then you might as well put your money in the bank. You will make more money there. Take a look at a Powerball lottery that is a Pick 5 from 1 through 69 numbers and a Powerball number from 26 numbers. The odds for a winning ticket are 1 in 292,201,338. Look at another lottery, say Pick 6/53 numbers. The odds of guessing the jackpot is 1 in 22,957,480 drawings. The odds of winning a Pick 5/36 number lottery is 376,992 to 1. The odds for the pick 5 are considerably better. This is the kind of lottery we have a better chance of winning. Logical. Most players do not play these lotteries. So play a game with lower odds. The idea is to win games.
Further, we greatly improve those odds by using wheeling systems.

Picking Winning Numbers Tips.
– If you will be using a wheeling system strategy, you can skip Tips 2-7. When playing with a wheeling system, it nullifies the win assurance if you take out any of the combinations.
Look at the Drawing History
In any lottery, look at the drawing history. Notice that every 3rd to 5th drawing will be numbers 10 and above. This means that if you play to this mathematical statistic, you will be eliminating the numbers 1-9. Your odds just increased by eliminating these numbers. Take advantage of this. For example, a lottery that is a pick 5 out of 36 numbers would become a pick 5 out of 27, So now your odds went from 1 in 376,992 to roughly 1 in 80,730.
Avoid Same Last Digits
Avoid playing the same last digits, for example, 4-14-24-34-44-54 and other similar combinations.
Avoid Calendar Numbers
Because many players like to play calendar numbers, such as birthdays and anniversaries, these numbers 1 through 31 are the most played. Keep this in mind when picking your strategies. Select higher numbers
Avoid Numbers Never Drawn
Avoid Combinations that have never been drawn. For example, consecutive numbers such as 1-2-3-4-5-6, etc., is a waste of money and time.
Avoid number multiples such as 5-10-15-20-25-30; this sequence has occurred very rarely. Doubt me take a look at your drawing’s history.
Do Not Use Quick Picks
Don’t use quick picks; it is a waste of your money. Use a system instead; your odds of a winning combination are much better.
Don’t Play Ticket Patterns.
Don’t play ticket patterns such as across or down or at an angle from your selection ticket.
Use a Lottery Wheeling System
By all means, use a lottery wheeling system. These mathematical systems help increase your number coverage, thereby increasing your odds.
Analyze Past Trends
Analyze the past trends; after all, chaos is a trend, with tools such as Since Last Hit Charts, Frequency Charts, and use the software you feel comfortable using.
