From A Double Million Dollar Lottery Winner
Yes, I have won the lottery - Twice. And no, I do not play lotto the way 99% of the population plays. Perhaps equally important is the fact that very few months go by without me having at least a small win of some kind.
My larger wins include: $1,374,196, $1,008,742, $76,500, $19,612, $15,569, $15,334, $12,565, $10,658, $7,751 and $5,554 - and we will tell you where you can see proof later.
But first, a dose of realism. These wins have been over a period of 6 years - so obviously we do not win every week. Anyone who promises you the secret to winning lotto every week is peddling snake oil - no ifs, no buts. What IS possible is a regular small win of $20-$100, plus a lotto strategy technique that significantly boosts your chances of winning the big one. So what do we do that is different?
ORGANIZE The Lotto Numbers
We ORGANIZE the lotto numbers - rather than try to PICK the numbers. This is the Quantum Leap that has dramatically "improved our luck." Despite over a 100 hundred years of proof that no-one can PICK the 6 winning lotto numbers, most players continue with an approach that has never worked!
Making sure you have all 6 winning lotto numbers is incredibly simple - Play ALL of the lottery numbers! Not rocket science, but it will get more complicated. At its simplest, playing the following multiple entries in any 49-number, Pick-6 lottery GUARANTEES you have ALL the winning lotto numbers somewhere in your overall entry:
As you will see later, we do NOT recommend playing like this - it is presented for simplicity, so that you can see the concept. Later, we will show you a much better approach.
Your big objection is probably that there are TEN numbers, not six. Again, part of our lotto strategy, and in this article we show you two ways to use 10-number entries.
Match Your Outlay to the Lotto Jackpot
A fact most lotto players miss - The cost of playing and the odds of winning are the same - whether you are playing for $1 Million or $100 Million. At $1 million, I would be playing alone, with a $30-$50 outlay only. At $100 Million, I would still be playing with a $30-$50 outlay BUT would join with 19 others so that our collective stake is $600 - $1,000. No-one pays more money than they can afford - but by pooling our efforts we can organize a bigger, smarter entry.
Since the cost of playing lotto differs around the world, this has to be a generic overview. Remember that 10-number lotto entry? Well, at an individual level, we need a "cut-price" way to play. A "full" Lotto system 10 requires you to play 210 games (that is how many 6-number combinations there are in 10 numbers).
For 5 sets of 10 numbers, that is 1,050 games in total - within the price range of 20-30 people pooling their efforts for a massive jackpot.
However, well outside the individual play budget we recommend ($20-$50 per week). But - if you view your 10 numbers as 5 pairs, any 3 pairs from 5 pairs can be totally covered in just 10 games, or 50 games overall. So, if 3 of your 5 pairs include the 6 winning lotto numbers - you have hit the lotto jackpot!
The Cooperative Approach
The "Cooperative Approach" has been a cornerstone of our success. When the lotto jackpot is peanuts, we all play alone. When the jackpot starts to swell, we come together and pool our resources for a concerted attack.
You can do this as a family, a workplace collective, or ask your lotto agent to organize a Group Entry.
With $100 Million on offer, 20 people still get to take home $5 Million each. Strange as it may seem, $5 Million is better for your health and well-being than one person winning $100 Million - but that is a whole new article (if you don't believe me, Google what has happened to winners of massive lotto jackpots).
In any other sphere of life we recognize the value of pooling resources and a cooperative approach to problem solving. Not when playing lotto. The lottery could change your life - isn't it time to take a smarter approach than, "I want it all!"
Understand The Game
Can you tell me the exact odds of winning the game you personally play? Most people have either no idea, or only a vague idea. That is a bit like buying one golf club, one ball, heading off to the Golf Club - and expecting to hit a hole in one, without a single lesson! Learn about your lottery - we will give you some tips below - the more you know, the better you go.
Odd and Even Lotto Numbers
Odd and Even lotto number patterns are interesting. Did you know that a lotto result that has 3-odd + 3-even numbers is around THIRTY times more likely to come out than a lottery result that has 6 numbers all even or all odd?
As an example, let's take 1,000 results from the New Jersey 6-49 Lottery. 334 games ended with 3-odd numbers + 3 even numbers - a result you can expect, on average 1 week in 3. Two Odd + Four Even numbers accounted for 224 of the 1,000 New Jersey lotto results, and Four Odd + Two Even numbers accounted for 233 of the 1,000 results.
These three result types accounted for 791 of the 1,000 games - almost an 8 weeks out of 10 occurrence!
In contrast, only 10 games had all odd numbers, and only 10 games had all even numbers. Out of 1,000 games!
It is this kind of "Lotto Intelligence" that keeps the games you play in line with the kind of results of results that occur most regularly.
Consecutive Lottery Numbers
Again, Consecutive Lottery Numbers are interestingly. For 6-ball lotto games you should never be playing 6 numbers that include more than 3 consecutive numbers.
Taking our 1,000 results from the New Jersey 6-49 Lottery again, we see the following: 512 games had NO Consecutive numbers, and 388 had only two consecutive numbers. Between them, the two result-types accounted for 900 of the 1,000 games - or, a result you could expect, on average, 9 weeks out of 10!
This of course is for a 6-number result. If we were playing 5 sets of 10, I would suggest allowing up to 3 consecutive numbers in any 10, but no more.
Lottery Number Sectors
In choosing our lotto numbers, we divide the total lotto numbers into 3 sectors. For a 6-from-49 lottery, this is 1 to 16, 17 to 32, and 33-49. For most weeks, the 6 winning numbers will include between 1 and 3 numbers from each sector. Now, with our 10 number system we can ensure each set of 10 numbers includes 3 from each sector (with 4 from one sector). This practice of matching the games we play to the most commonly occurring result is what we call "Lottery Profiling™." First, determine from the lottery history the result that occurs most frequently - then mirror that in your lottery entry.
For our New Jersey 6-49 example, 669 of the 1,000 fit this "Profile." This is equivalent to 2 weeks out of every 3.
There are "smart" ways to play lotto, and there are "dumb" ways to play. To play smart, you first need to gather Intelligence about what works most often in your lottery - then you need to structure an entry that fits that Profile. The next step is to set up a "Cooperative" to pool funds for massive lotto jackpots. Finally you need a Lotto system. Talking of which, here is how we would structure the 5 System 10's we started with:
Note that each set of 10 has 5-odd and 5-even numbers (no game can be all-odd or all-even, and most of our games fall in the "Smart Play Zone™." Secondly, there are few consecutive numbers. Finally, there are 3-4 numbers from each sector. (Note that 46 has been doubled, to get 25 odd/even numbers; It was 1 in the original set).
While our own Group Entries are even more sophisticated, the above info will enable you to play a much "smarter" lotto game.
