A lot of people think you can find winning lottery numbers by just pushing a button and letting some software crunch the numbers. If only life was really like that. The truth is that it takes a lot more than this.
What you have to remember is that, for most lottery games, everything is based around a bunch of small rubber balls bouncing around inside a clear plastic drum. It's therefore the mechanics of the lottery draw machine that determine what balls come out - NOT the numbers written on those balls.
What do I mean?
Well, look at how many experts will tell you to avoid playing certain combinations because they are less likely to be drawn. Yet strategies like this make no sense in the real world.
It doesn't matter that a ball has an odd or even number written on it. This alone cannot make a ball more or less likely to come out of the machine. Seriously, think it through. If 5 odd numbers have been drawn, and the sixth number is about to come out, it could still be any one of the balls left in the machine. How did it suddenly become impossible for an odd number to come out? Because that's what certain experts will tell you - never pick all odd or all even combinations because they can never happen...
I've got news for those experts. Not only can they happen - they HAVE happened, and will continue to do so.
What Is The Best Strategy For Picking Lottery Numbers?
Any strategies for picking numbers based purely on the type of number they are is total nonsense. Odds and evens, highs and lows, multiples of certain numbers... it simply doesn't make sense to avoid any combinations based solely on these criteria. You cannot increase your chances of winning by eliminating combinations in this way. The whole concept of 'bad combinations' based on this kind of analysis is a myth.
There are however strategies you can apply to finding those winning numbers.
But it will never be a case of turning a game into an instant cash machine. That's fantasy land. But if you learn good strategy, and take the time to apply it, then you can make serious improvements to your chances of winning. That's not only the best you can get, it's really all you should be looking for. Because anything more than that, well, frankly it's just a lie!
The way to think is to come back to that draw machine. Look at how it works. What factors in the real world could possibly make any ball more or less likely than any other?
It's a mechanical machine. So a lot of things can affect the way it operates - everything from wear and tear, to background temperature or those small ripples in the electricity supply. We can never have enough data in order to track and make predictions based on these factors, but you can attempt to spot the results of them.
So good strategies for picking numbers take into account real world factors that can genuinely impact the way balls come out of the draw machine.
But picking your pool of numbers is really only one piece of the pie - there is a lot more to a good overall strategy and maximising your chances of winning than just those numbers.
