It's not all luck, you know. You can make better lottery predictions when you the winning lottery strategy, the Prevalence Principle.
The Prevalence Principle is kind of like that old children's game of hot and cold? Remember that? You tell someone you've hidden something, and they start looking for it. When they move further away from it, you say, "colder." When they move closer to it, you say, "warmer." And when they get really close, you say "hotter."
In lottery games, there are numbers that are colder, and there are numbers that are colder. The hotter ones are the ones drawn more often. The colder ones are the ones drawn less often.
The Prevalence Principle states that when you play the hotter numbers win a prevalence of the time. Therefore, when you play those numbers consistently, you have greater chances of winning.
How do you find those numbers?
You start keeping track of the numbers that have won.
You can use a notebook or a spreadsheet. Whatever is more convenient for you. But start writing down the winning numbers in every drawing of the game you want to play.
You want to create a chart. Put all the numbers in the field of the game you play along the top and the dates of the drawings on the side.
For example, in Megamillions, the field is 1 to 56. So you would put 1 through 56 along the top of your chart. Now, for each drawing date, put a tick mark or check mark under each number that was drawn.
You can find the numbers of previous drawings at the game's website. So you can go back and fill in rather than waiting for a bunch of future drawings.
In just a short time period, you'll see a pattern emerging. Some numbers come up a lot more than others. These are the hotter numbers.
I'm a visual gal, so I like to create graphs. That way I can easily see what the "hotter zones" are.
This whole Prevalence Principle surprised me when I first learned it. I mean, the lottery is random, right? When I started charting, I expected to my tick marks pretty evenly spread out. But that's not what happened. There were definitely masses of hotter areas.
Now I know to play those areas because that's where the prevalence of the winning numbers are.
Lotteries are nearly as random as we think they are. I remember my father, a scientist, once explaining fractal geometry to me. It was pretty complex, but the gist of it was that even in what seems to be total chaos, when we look closely, we find order in it. This is true of lottery games, for sure.
You can master making lottery predictions. Start using the winning lottery strategy like the Prevalence Principle.
