    Something to do with the law of probability or something like that.

    Also picking 123456 is NOT a good idea because a LOT of people do actually pick 123456.

    So if those numbers do come out there will be a lot of winners to share with.

    Alexc, the aim is to win not the number of people you share it with. If that were the winning combination I’d rather have picked it, than a wrong number.

    But as you can’t know which combination is going to win, it makes sense to try and pick a less popular combination.

    I have never won the lottery . The most I have won on the pick six was two dollars. I want to win it all. With your help.

    Hi Lottery Guy.

    People are very sceptical about my strategy. This strategy is based on sharing the jackpot between two people. This is my strategy. Player A choose any 3 numbers between 1 and 49. Player B chooses any 3 numbers between 1 and 49. If both of the players hit 3 numbers than the players hit the jackpot.

    I’m not good at picking all 6 numbers. Cause sometimes if I choose 6 numbers I only hit 3 numbers and sometimes I feel if I just combined my 3 numbers with someone else who got different 3 numbers than we would have got the jackpot. I know you will have critics about the sharing jackpot, but I don’t mind as long as I won it. I know the chances that both players have 3 numbers on the same draw day is rare, but it can happen. And it could be fun two players choosing 3 numbers each. Logically it’s more easy two people picking 3 numbers each.

    Hi Corne,

    You still have to match all 6 between you, so your chances of winning are just the same.

    But if it’s fun to play that way, keep doing it.

    Hi Lottery-guy.com, There are many reasons why I would never waste my money on picking a lottery ticket 1,2,3,4,5,6 but the closest reason that comes to mind, is that it has never happened before. Once or twice it came close, but it never happen in all the time of modern lottery play. With all the lotteries over decades it has not happened. So why would I burn my $1 lottery money on this set of numbers??? It is not likely (statistically) to happen.

  • Russ

    Yes, in one sense, statistically, each and all of the numbers have an equal opportunity to be selected on any single drawing. But on another statistical front (sense, perspective), it is not as wide open random as you would think. Just look at the drawings from week to week. There are single digits, teens, 20’s, 30’s and 40’s numbers in every drawing. There is always a spread of numbers across this spectrum. So we need to understand this reasoning in order to pick better Lottery numbers. I dont believe in quick pick Lotto, as I have never even come close when I use this technique.

    Hi Russ

    That’s a very common mistake.

    Do you know how many lottery combinations have NEVER appeared anywhere in any lottery draw ever? It’s literally MILLIONS of them. Because even the longest running lotteries have only had a few thousand draws!

    So it makes no sense to avoid combinations just because they haven’t been drawn yet.

    Imagine it was day 1 of the first lottery in the world – what combinations would you avoid because they haven’t been drawn..? See what I mean?
