Lotteries have become more and more popular in the United Kingdom in recent years. The main reason for this is that the National Lottery provides much better odds of winning a prize relative to the other lotteries.
The odds of matching all six numbers on the UK National Lottery’s main draw are over 14 million to 1. In comparison, the Irish Lottery has odds of 1.36 Billion to 1 and Euro Millions has odds of 3.52 Billion to 1.
Despite the great odds though, many still play the UK National Lottery as it has more than twice the payout of the other lotteries.
Here are some rules that you can follow to handicap a UK lottery drawing.
Look for Trends
Did you know that in the last four years there have been more than 700 number combinations in the Irish Lottery? In the last five years almost 1600 different number combinations have been drawn.
The reason for this is that the number has increased so much, people have been drawn to it and the price is also high.
In the United Kingdom Lotteries you need to pick six numbers, out of a possible 49. You can choose from the traditional sequence, or you can also get a quick pick which uses the computer to select the numbers for you.
Whether you have a lucky day or not, generally people stick with the same numbers. You might have a lucky day and not use the same numbers for the whole week, then what happens is you don’t win the jackpot.
This happened to me. When I first started playing the lottery I didn’t use any strategy other than superstition. I picked my numbers at random and played. And lucky for me I did win the jackpot. But it wasn’t because I played superstitious ways.
I used an easy strategy. I stopped using superstitious ways and began using an Irish lottery strategy. Now my winning numbers are in a different sequence than when I first started playing the Pokerace99.
The key to winning the lotto is not superstitious, it’s statistical. When you look at the past you can get a good idea of the lotto drawings results. You’ll be able to see trends. Using this you can then choose your numbers using a strategy and lower your probability of having to share your jackpot.
There are many different strategies you can use and I encourage you to check them out so that you can find something that works for you.
If you’re not sure how to handicap a lotto drawing look at the winning numbers for the past few weeks. You can either check the official lottery website or even on the lotto itself. Often these are posted on the internet and are also available in forms such as print and broadcast.
Perhaps the best way to handicap lotto is to look at the news. There are all kinds of stories with the potential of turning your morning lottery ticket into a possible millionaire.
