Can you really pick lottery numbers? That’s a complicated question with no easy answers. You could bot yourself with programs to make it easier or you could spend hours and hours crunching numbers and looking for patterns. But can you really accurately predict the winning numbers amongst the Infamous 1% of winners who garner all the media attention?

Depending on who you talk to, the answer is a big fat no. But, there are a handful of people who have devised systems or habits for predicting the winning numbers in the lottery with great success.

researchers who study lottery winners, regularly interview them and dig up whatever they can on the winnings. The most common answers is that the winners are superstitious. For example, they would tell you that the number 7 is lucky whereas the number 6 is not. These superstitions have been reinforced through years of lottery winners telling their lucky stories.

However, many people who have won the lottery, including those who have won several times, think differently. Many of them started with different numbers and then progressed to more rewarding lottery numbers. These people, most often, chose to play different numbers time after time after time until they were drawn.

Most people believe that winning lottery numbers are inevitable and once they have their numbers, it would be pretty difficult to win again. This is both a physical and a mental phenomenon. The numbers are picked randomly and without any form of strategy involved, it is very difficult to win the lottery again, this at all times.

There are many ways to pick lottery numbers, most of them with a positive mathematical expectation, which means you will win more than you invest. Some of the more popular ways of picking numbers are the 1-5-7-9 system, the 6-1-5-7 system, the 7-1-5-7 system. Using lottery strategies like these can increase your chances of winning a lottery prize. The positive mathematical expectation simply stated is that the number selected will more often than not be one of the winning numbers!

**So how do we apply these ideas to pick lottery numbers?**

Well, we don’t! We can’t predict the winning numbers precisely, if we could. But there are ways to handicap the numbers and balance them out, making sure you have a certain level of statistical probability – otherwise you’ll never win.

Ken Silver, a computer programmer and lottery winner, achieved a $1.2 million lottery win in 1994 with a computer program he developed to analyze lottery numbers. What he did was similar to what many other lottery winners have done: He observed the winning numbers in the spring of the season and tried to predict what they would be, from the 1-5-7-9 lottery pattern. He analyzed the 1-5-7-9 pattern in great detail, generating several different combinations that could be drawn. He played these combinations in the 94Lotto 6/49 game in Dewatogel. The goal was to win the top prize, no matter what the odds were. When the time came to draw the numbers, all of his combinations were poor picks. But because he spent several months developing his system and picking these numbers, he didn’t spend as much money on tickets as many of these other winners. Ken Silver said that when he was winning smaller prizes, he made sure to spend more money on additional games. This technique is the only way to win a lotto jackpot and nothing else will bring in the cash to help increase your chances.

In addition, there are other ways to handicap the numbers and balance them out. One way is to use the law of the third, which is the idea that if a number is called frequently, then it is very possibly drawn again. Many people think that when a number is rarely called, then it must not be called again for a short while. But, no. The law of the third in this sense says that if a number isn’t called for several calls, then it is very possibly to be called again. The person playing the lottery is hoping that the number will be called again. But if it isn’t called, then the person may throw away the ticket. This is the basis of the “lottery pattern” theory so that you can increase your chances of winning.

n the above mentioned lottery pattern, the third law of numbers dictates that a highly ranked number should be called less often than other numbers. As an example, the number 32 is an excellent choice to play because no one really knows what numbers will be drawn. If you heard a voice saying the 32 times in a row, then it could be called in the next lottery draw. The voice is believed to be the voice of fate. This law is not foolproof, but it is a good way to increase your chances of winning.
