Im a freak for the lotto! I WILL win someday. With the Mega Millions jackpot at over $586 million and growing this thing could reach 1 BILLION by Christmas!! In the famous words of The Hunger Games, Catching Fire "The odds are never in our favor." This is unfortunately true and yet we flock to convince stores and gas stations to try to beat the odds stacked way against us for that .000000001 chance of living the rest of our lives comfortably sailing around our own island in The Caribbean on a yacht.

The odds may be against us but that doesn't mean we can't better our chances. There are people out there who have won numerous lottos by figuring out ways to BEAT the odds!!  Here are some tips to make us millionaires!! 

  • Don't pick numbers that have some kind of meaning to you, such as birthday dates. Most lotteries go from numbers 1 - 46, how many uncles do you have that were born on the 46th day of the month? Think logically when choosing your lottery numbers.
  • Don't pick lottery numbers that have won previously. This is a bad idea, the lottery is random and the same numbers aren't going to come up again and again because the draws are random.
  • If you want to choose your lottery numbers properly, try and get a program that randomly generates numbers 1 through to 46. Or you could simply write all the numbers down on small pieces of paper and put them into a hat. By drawing them out at random you are imitating the lottery draw system - and random is what you want!
  • Join a lottery syndicate. A syndicate is basically a group of people who club together to purchase lottery tickets, and then share any of their winnings. 1 in 4 lottery wins are won by a syndicate, and you have a far greater chance of winning than by simply playing on your own.
Good luck! And may the odds ever be in your favor!!!
