Tips To Increase Your Chances Of Winning The $540 Million!
The odds of getting hit by lightning are better than winning tonight’s record $540 Million Mega Millions Jackpot but that’s not stopping you from buying a ticket, right? Somebody’s gotta win eventually and you gotta be in it to win it! I was curious to see if there were strategies to picking numbers that might increase my chances even a little bit. Here’s what I found:
-Try to have a relatively even mix of odd and even numbers. The best mix is to have 3 odd and 2 even or 2 odd and 3 even.
-Winning numbers are usually spread out across the entire number field so don’t pick all low or all high numbers. Mega Millions has a spread of 1-56 so pick 2 or 3 from between 1-28 and the remaining 2 or 3 from between 29-56.
-After you choose your 5 main numbers add them together and make sure the sum is between 106-179. That range has hit in 70% of all lottery jackpots.
-Avoid betting 5 consecutive numbers.
-Avoid betting one lotto number group. For example, all teens, all 20’s, etc.
-Avoid making a pattern on the lottery sheet you pick your numbers on. Don’t pick numbers in a row- horizontally or vertically or mark a pattern such as an initial.
-Avoid number multiples like 5,10,15,20,25 or 7,14,21,28,35.
-Avoid all the same last digits like 3, 13, 23, etc…
Good luck and if this works out for you don’t forget who helped you out! :)
