Who's here to win? You are. The best way to ensure this is to follow some of the unrivaled strategies to playing the lottery. Some may testify that they are not ways to ensure a winning ticket, though that is not an accurate assumption. The lottery is a game of probability, and there are many methods available to increase your chances of acquiring those winning numbers. But, first of all, you can’t win if you don’t play, so when you enter the game, you should start thinking about several unique and specific approaches. Always remember that the lottery strategy is just a tool designed to help you improve odds to win the jackpot easier.

Why Not Playing The Same Numbers?
Playing the same numbers over and over may not increase the probability of a win, but changing your numbers constantly will neither. However, players ensure the validity of this method today and have throughout the generations. The repetitious numbers will actually keep you from changing your possibly correct numbers for incorrect ones. The best example to support this strategy came recently from England, when Peter Congdon, a 67-year old city councilor from Cornwall and a regular lotto player, won a £13.5 million jackpot prize using the same number combination for more than 5 decades - 12, 27, 28, 39, 41 and 48.

It is easier to play the same numbers over and over, and wait for them to be drawn, than try to create new numbers for every ticket, because altering numbers will just increase the likelihood of you choosing the wrong number.

Wheeling and Dealing
You may find that when you play your numbers, you have all the right ones, on all the wrong cards. To alleviate that frustration, players will often use a wheeling system (playing various combinations of the same numbers) to play the lottery with more than one ticket. A wheeling system is designed for players to use as many numbers from the matrix as they wish, and it can increase your winning odds. While dependent only on the amount of money you are willing to spend, wheeling is used both by individual lottery players and those who join their forces into a syndicate. In fact, players often use it according to the fact “more numbers you play, the greater the chance for a win”. Wheeling systems are also available online, and are pretty simple to use, and will definitely aid those real lucky players into exponentially more fortunate, as it helped a group of Florida punters to score a \$100.000 worth prize using the Lottery Tracker and Wheeler software.

Tracking What's Hot
You can further increase your chances of winning the jackpot by specifically picking some numbers that are frequently chosen. Have you ever noticed a trend in the winning numbers? Maybe '36' appears five times in the last ten drawings. Coincidence? Maybe not. Players find that these numbers that appear frequently are “hot” numbers, and those are the ones they play. All the numbers have an equal probability of being chosen as a winning number, but who is to say that randomization doesn't favor those numbers? Or maybe the program has given those numbers a higher frequency in the probability sequence. Who knows?

It is really easy to track the hot numbers, simply opening up a lottery website and viewing the previous winning numbers. All the reputable online lottery providers offer statistics for your preferred lottery game. LottoSignals also ensures a system to incorporate various methods and calculations that provide the best possible numbers to play. Choose the ones that you see the most, create your own combination and play them on your next ticket and continue choosing it until you win. You can put your confidence in a calculated system, like a geological statistician from Toronto who figured out repetitions of certain numbers on a simple scratch card tic-tac-toe style in his hometown.

Pooling The Cash
Pooling or creating a lottery syndicate is also a good idea to win big money. It is practically a group of people who joined to pool tickets and increase their odds of winning. If anyone in the group wins, all the group members will share that prize. The fact is that lottery pool presents a good way to increase your odds without your financial investment, but you will also receive a reduced pay-out if your group wins. As an example, New York-based syndicate called “Lucky 16 Trust” managed to scoop \$58 million, but the entire amount was split between 16 members of the group.

Although this strategy might look tempting, there are a couple of tips you should take into consideration. First thing of all, disputes and disagreements arising from claims are pretty common among members of the syndicate – especially when people don’t know each other. So, better enter into a pool with familiar people, define who the leader is and sign a contract if possible. As opposite to that NY group, who successfully shared its prize, we have the case of a member of Australian lottery syndicate with Tatts Lotto, who took the group’s AUS \$16.6 million for himself. The guy left no other choice for the group but to file a legal claim on him.

Lottery is a game of luck and in order to win it, it is better to use your logic and then help yourself with a couple of winning tips and strategies. The strategy heavily depends on the lottery game you actually play, and if it worked for other people, it is not necessary to work with you. Also, there are strategies that in fact do work better than others, so the final decision is to be done by you.
