Steps to becoming a Lottery Winner

Step 1

    • When you’re picking numbers, try and get a good mix of odds, evens, high’s and low’s.
      1. Powerball: 
        1. Low Numbers = 1 – 27
        2. High Numbers = 28 - 55

Step 2

    • People who pool together their money have a wider variety of number choices and can afford to buy more tickets. Signing a mutually agreeable contract is suggested.

Step 3

    • Don’t play consecutive combinations. It’s extremely unlikely that 4 or 5 numbers will hit.
    • TIP: The total of your 5 numbers should be between 104 – 176. Sums that fall within that range, count for about 70% of all lottery jackpots.

Step 4

    • Don’t pick all of your numbers from the same number group, like the 10s or 30s. And avoid selections that all end in the same digit.

Step 5

    • For contests where there is always a Winner, increase your chances by playing unpopular games and times. Like small payouts and on days such as Friday 13th.

Step 6

    • Be smart about scratch offs. They have better odds than the Pick-A-Number games but the payouts are smaller.
    • TIP: Check your state’s official lottery web site for information about payouts and how to claim winnings.         

Step 7

    • People often play dates that are special to them, which means the numbers 1 -31 get a real 'work-out.' It won’t help you win, but if you do, choosing numbers OVER 31 will help you win bigger because fewer people will be sharing the jackpot.
