2. How to Win the Lottery

## Home Truths

Although many lottery winners have got lucky with a random match or lucky dip ticket there are some lottery winners who didn’t rely on pure luck at all. What about those winners who are “lucky” enough to hit the jackpot more than once, do you think their good fortune is purely down to luck?

If you are wise enough to realize that something more than mere luck is playing a part in such success stories then you will want to read the remainder of this article.

## Using Mathematics

Although the nature of the lottery is for the vast majority of players to lose so that an extremely small group of people can win there are things you can do to ensure you are not in the larger group of losers.

Using mathematics and a solid scientific approach it is possible to greatly increase your chances of having a winning lottery ticket.

The problem with most lottery players is that they pick their numbers randomly.

Many people play the lottery in a superstitious way believing falsely that they are following some sort of system – such as picking numbers that they feel are lucky or basing their numbers of certain dates.

## The Statistics of the Matter

Statistically and mathematically speaking these systems have the same chance of winning as a randomly chosen set of numbers.

You don't have to be Einstein to take advantage of maths

When you pick numbers in any way except when through a sound and provable mathematical formula you have an astronomically small chance of winning the jackpot.

To illustrate this point let’s look at the National Lottery in England. To win this lottery you must pick the 6 winning numbers from the 49 offered to you. If your 6 numbers are a match to the 6 numbers drawn in the lottery then you win the jackpot.

The odds of winning the Texas Lottery are 1 in 47,784,352 and the odds of winning the UK National Lottery jackpot prize with a random ticket are 1 in 14,000,000.

With odds of 14 million to 1 you have greater odds of being hit by lightning and dying than you do of winning the top prize.

Picking your lottery tickets the standard way is extremely unlikely to bring you wealth and riches. Just buying random lottery tickets will get you nowhere unless you are an extremely lucky person!
