7 Simple Ways To Increase Your Chances Of Winning The Euromillions Lottery
1) Analyze the numbers that emerged in the past wining results. Look carefully for patterns of numbers that recur. For example, if a pattern that you chose occurs only 4% of the time, it’s easy to see that your chances of winning with that pattern are also 4%.
2) Choose an almost perfect split of even and odd numbers. For instance pick numbers on a 2:3 or 3:2 ratio, meaning pick 3 odd numbers for every 2 even numbers or 3 even numbers for every 2 odd numbers. With this simple trick your odds of matching all the winning numbers increases by up to 68%.
3) Select a balanced number field that comprises both low and high numbers. The chance that all high or all low numbers will appear is very small. Since Euromillions is a 50 number game, you will find low numbers in the range of 1 to 25 and high numbers in the range of 26 to 50. Again you will want to follow 3:2 or 2:3 ratios with high and low numbers.
4) Take the total sum of the numbers you have picked, if it falls betwen 95 and 160 you can expect your chances of winning to increase significantly. Totals much less than 95 or far in excess of 160 are highly unlikely.
5) Remember that at least one lottery number that had been drawn in the last results is more than likely to appear again in the next draw.
6) Take note of any numbers that haven't appeared at all in the last six draws, as half of the numbers that make up the next winning draw will be made up of those.
7) Join a syndicate. In a syndicate many people pool their tickets and play together. Your chances of winning are increased as you have access to more winning ticket possibilities. The only downside is that any win is shared equally among all syndicate members.
Following all of these steps will surely increase your chances of winning the Euromillions. So start playing the game the smart way.
