Do you believe that a lottery number analysis is a secret tool to improve your odds of winning the lottery? I strongly suggest you pay attention to this article.
So you’ve decided to take the next step in improving your odds of winning the lottery and you’ve purchased a lottery software program. Wait, you’ve got an extra dollar to spend on lottery analysis software, right? Surprisingly, you may not be completely crazy and there are some really good programs out there that can do this job very well.
The truth is, you may be correct about one thing, you SURE won’t win the lotto using a lottery software program. That’s because the programs don’t run the numbers through the lottery’s history to improve your odds of winning the lotto. Why? Because those programs are analyzing the numbers and giving you “scratchers” not advice.
Here’s what actually happens. Say you decide to purchase a book called “101 Winning Plays for All Lottoenses.” The book is actually two manuals, the first part of each section, the book as a whole, is actually about organizing your lottery budget for the particular lotto you are playing. The book would then be a manual of sorts that tells you how to use the tools inside the book to improve your odds of winning the lotto.
Important Update! Please Read!
Why stop with a manual? Let’s say you’ve purchased a book that explains how to use a wheeling system and the like. Does that make them any less valid? Absolutely not! Just because a tool or strategy is proven to work once doesn’t mean it will work again. Plus you’ve purchased a book online, you’ve got to use that to improve your odds of winning the lotto, right? I don’t think so.
A fact is, the only way to increase your odds of winning the QQdewa is to choose more numbers. The more numbers you play, the better your odds. But, there are ways to increase your odds of winning the lottery while staying within your budget. Let’s look at an example.
We’ll look at the Mega Millions lottery, a 5/56 game with a guaranteed minimum jackpot of $2 million. The odds for winning the jackpot in the Mega Millions game are approximately 1-in-3.9-million. If you play 5 numbers, you need to match 5-out-of-56 numbers to win the jackpot. matching 5 correctly would match the numbers; 1111, 1112,1113,1120,1121,1123, and 1231. The odds of correctly matching all 5 numbers are approximately 1-in-3.9-million.
What are the odds of matching all 5 numbers? The Washington DC Super Lotto is also a 5/56 game, and the odds are 1-in- Unfortunately, Washington DC’s lottery has 2 losing numbers, so you are more likely to lose by matching only these numbers. By matching only these numbers, you are approximately 1.3-times more likely to win the jackpot than by matching the 5 numbers in the Mega Millions game.
However, you are more likely to win other prizes in the Washington DC Super Lotto. If you match 3-out-of-56 numbers, you win the second prize of $25. The odds of matching 3 of the numbers are approximately 1-in-February, 6-in- March, 8-in- April, and 9-in- May.
The third prize in the Washington DC Super Lotto is $2. The odds of matching 2 of the numbers are approximately 1-in-ticket. The odds of matching 3 of the numbers are approximately 1-in-many, many more, approximately 1-in-250,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000. Even if you purchase hundreds of tickets, you would be virtually impossible to match all 6 numbers, so the odds of winning the third prize are approximately 1-in-six-million.
Third and Fourth Winnings
Winning the fifth prize would require matching 5 correct numbers, again, with the matching having to be within the given range. Important note: the lower the number range, the lower the odds of winning. By matching just 5 numbers, you would need to match exactly 5 numbers to win the jackpot.
