Most Americans can only dream about winning a lottery. You probably have a greater chance of being struck by lightning then winning the lottery. However, there are some ways that you may slightly increase your chances of winning the “big one”.
First, try playing the same numbers every week. Many people play Birthdays or dates of memorable events. In addition, if you can afford it, try playing 2 tickets with Birthdays and purchase an additional ticket, which you should allow the machine to pick the numbers.
Therefore, you will basically only be spending $3 on lottery tickets. My best advice concerning the instant games is they are a waste of money. I did some research on the topic and found that most states only have 1 or 2 big instant winners each year. Most people win just a few dollars on scratch off tickets if you even win that much.
The lottery is governed by the state that basically sets the rules for lottery sale and distribution. According to the laws, the lottery is supposed to give back a certain rate of return on each ticket sold. Apparently, the lottery must follow these guidelines or they could face some legal ramifications.
Finally, if you wish to join a lottery pool at work then go for it. It is not known weather the more tickets that you purchase increases your chances of winning. I have always shad my doubts about this theory since it only takes “one” ticket to win. Remember, stay within your spending limit when playing the lottery.
