You’ve probably wondered how to increase your chances of winning the lotto, right? You and millions of Filipinos are actually thinking of the same thing! Is there actually a technique on how to win lotto and if there is, how do you do it?
According to avid lotto players, they have tried the following seven ways to increase their chances. Have fun trying each technique out.
Check previous winning numbers
Check the winning number trends. Some successful lotto bettors check winning number combinations weeks or even months ago. You might think that this is a useless tactic or you’re just wasting your time but actually, quite a few people have had great success with this technique.
How do you do it? Go to any PCSO Lotto results blog or at the PCSO lotto site and check numbers as far as last year. It would take time to study the trend though but you will soon notice that some numbers appear more often than others.
Create a list of these numbers and create your own combination using these numbers. There are several lotto games to choose from like the Ultra Lotto, Grand Lotto, Super Lotto, Mega Lotto, and the 6/42 Lotto.
If you want to better increase your chances, you can also select from simpler lotto games like the 6 Digits Game, 4 Digits Game, Suertres Lotto or the EZ2 Lotto. Remember that it’s easier to spot number trends in smaller numbers than in major lotto draws.
Use machine/computer generated numbers
Sometimes it’s really hard to pick numbers especially when you are asked to choose any number from 1 to 58! And to make betting easier, you can use a machine or computer generated or assisted betting technique.
Ask the lotto teller for a computer-generated series of number and she’ll give you a set of random numbers. These numbers are simply picks made by the system and are in no way related to any winning combination.
Would you believe that several lotto winnings were computer generated? Maybe this technique works so why not give it a try?
Bet small on different number combinations
As mentioned, it is usually easier to come up with a winning combination when you are betting on smaller numbers. Take the two-digit lotto game called the EZ2 where you will simply pick any two numbers from 1 to 3 BUT you need to give an exact number or the combination should be in exact order.
Standard Play for EZ2 will win PHP 4,000 while betting on a “rambolito” game will win you PHP 2,000. This is easy money especially when each bet costs only PHP 12.00. Three draws of the EZ2 game are drawn every day. The first draw is at 11 am, the second draw is at 4 pm and the final draw is at 9 pm.
Other smaller digit combinations are the Suertres Lotto where you must pick three numbers from 0 to 9. You must provide numbers in the exact order as well and three different draws are also drawn each day.
Use a randomizer
A randomizer is an application or a tool that will help you find a random number using different constraints. You can use online random number generators; just enter the range of numbers you want to use and just let the system create random numbers for you.
Bet daily, bet every chance you get
One way to increase your chances of winning is to bet every time you have the chance. Make this a ritual; bet morning, afternoon and night. Just spending PHP 36 a day is not a huge deal when you think of the amount of money you’ll get if you win!
You may also choose the type of major lotto draw you want to concentrate on and bet on this game every time you have the chance. Take note that different lotto games are drawn differently each week. Remember the following lotto draw schedules:
- Lotto 6/42 – every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturdays 9 PM
- Mega Lotto 6/45 – every Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays 9 PM
- Super Lotto 6/49 – every Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday 9 PM
- Grand Lotto 6/55 – every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturdays 9 PM
- Ultra Lotto 6/58 – every Tuesday, Friday, and Sundays at 9 PM
All lotto draws are televised daily at PTV 4 so be sure to watch daily and check the winning number combinations.
Bet from different outlets
Do you believe that some lotto outlets are luckier than others? Once a man won by betting on the Grand Lotto from an outlet near a train station in Blumentritt. Customers began lining up to place their bets from this outlet thinking that this was some kind of lucky site. Even the owner of the betting station placed a tarpaulin sign saying that a millionaire won by betting from the booth.
Still, there are betters who believe that a lotto booth near a church, a race track or inside a mall is lucky. Anyway, there’s no harm in trying this technique out so why not give it a shot?
Try your favorite number combinations
Almost every bettor has his own favorite lucky number combinations. These numbers may be based on particular numbers that are significant in their lives like birthdays of family members, anniversaries, special holidays, addresses and more.
Although there’s no proof that this technique works, some betters agree that in time, they will be successful. So gather all your favorite numbers and decide on which game will you bet on.
Increase your chances of winning by using scratch cards
Scratch cards are small cardboard cards with numbers. You need to scratch a layer of latex or plastic on top of the card to reveal winning number combinations. In most scratch card games, you’ll win when you get a pair. The smallest prize to be won could be PHP 20 and the highest could be PHP 50,000 to PHP100,000, it all depends on the type of scratch card game you are playing.
Buy more scratch cards and you’ll get more chances to win. And the best part is, you don’t have to wait for a lotto draw for the winning combination.
