Ever wondered what it must feel like to be Leonardo DiCaprio sitting in an Oscar Award ceremony every year only to find out that he doesn’t win – year after year. We imagine it must be the same sensation we feel when we buy lottery tickets on a regular basis only to lose each time. The good news is that you are not alone in feeling that way and it’s not your fault either!
In essence, the lottery is a game of chance. There is no way you could actively make the lottery work in your favor, but there are ways to better your odds. Here’s how:
- Stop choosing numbers of sentimental value
So you want to play in the big leagues now? It’s time to stop choosing your birthday and other sentimental numbers associated with dates. It’s always good to have a variety of even and odd numbers in your number selection and you should definitely have a look at past trends of hot/cold numbers to inform your decision.
- Lottery Systems and Strategies
Many lottery experts will attest that lottery systems and strategies do work. All you need to do is find the one that suits you best. There are many resources to assist you in choosing the right numbers such as number generators, probability checkers and other software that pump out the best possible number combinations. Please note that we say it’s POSSIBLE, not set in stone.
- Join a Syndicate
We cannot stress how effective syndicates are. 1 in every 4 lotteries are won by syndicates because it allows you to pool tickets without incurring a hefty cost. It also allows you to meet new people while you’re at it – people who (just like you) are also fed up of losing alone.
- “If at First You Don’t Succeed, Try, Try, Try Again.”
It’s pretty obvious really. If you haven’t won, it doesn’t mean that it’ll never happen – only that it hasn’t happened YET. You just need to be more consistent when you play the lottery and it may also help to change the lottery games you play every once in a while.
- Create your own lottery mantra
This may sound cheesy, but many lottery winners have confessed to having a strong motto and belief of winning long before they had actually won the lottery. In this way, we can see that a positive attitude goes a long way in improving your chances.
Whichever you choose, always remember that even though winning would be really great, it’s also nice to just play the game. Don’t get too caught up in wanting to win all the time since there will always be another time to play. Just like Leo, hard work and patience always pays off in the end. It’s just a matter of time.
