By: Paul R Wilson

In order to win a lottery you have to have the winning combination of numbers on your ticket. Once you have hit the lottery, you are more than set for life. The easy part is all the cool things that you could buy. The tough part is actually winning the money. You could pay off debt, buy a new car, or a house. The odds of winning a lottery are against you millions to one. In a game of lottery you have to maximize your chances of winning.

Must Play to Win

If you donít buy tickets on a given jackpot prize, you have no chances of winning. Everyone else that has purchased a ticket for that jackpot have a better chance of winning if you have not purchased a ticket.

Only Play if You Can Afford to Play

You should not spend the money that has an effect on the quality of your life. In other words, if you have other obligations that require money you should tend to them first. You may have to pay for rent, bills and food and this is money that you should not gamble with. You should only play if you have money to bet.

Buy Tickets Weekly.

You will increase your chances of winning if you play on a regular basis. If you buy one or two tickets per week, you are betting against many jackpots thus increasing your chances of winning. If you buy more tickets you increase your chances as well. It is important to play the lottery on a regular basis because it gives you more of an opportunity to win.

Set a Budget

The more tickets that you buy, the more of a chance you have to win, and likewise the more expensive it becomes. If you have $10 or $20 to spend weekly on the lottery by all means buy those tickets. You have to be consistent and stick to your budget. If you play $10 per week, in a year that is $520 spent on tickets. Keep in mind that a jackpot of millions of dollars is well worth the small weekly investment.

Choose Numbers Randomly

The game of lottery is completely random. At the drawing, the numbers are picked by random means. You increase your chances of winning if you play random numbers. You could have the retailer pick the numbers for you or you could use a computer program to do this for you.

Use a Fixed set of Numbers

Although the lottery is 100% random, there is no way to tell what winning combination is going to come up. You could keep a fixed random combination that you play as often as you like.

Keep Track of Winning Combinations

Keeping tabs on the number combinations that come up can provide you some valuable information. You get an idea of the numbers that come up frequently in the jackpot drawings. The major advantage is that you could develop a betting system with the information. This will allow you to play your personal choice of numbers that do frequently show up in the jackpot drawings or play the numbers that donít show up as frequently.

Keep your tickets Safe

There have been many cases where people have had the winning ticket, only to loose the winning ticket and have someone else claim their jackpot. This is one of the worst things that you could have happen. It is extremely important to not loose your tickets and keep them in a safe place.

Any lottery game is 100% random. There is no guarantee that you win. All you can really do is play and hope that just once in your lifetime you get a winning ticket. In order to get the winning ticket you must play.
