The lottery is not a strategic game. All the winning numbers are drawn at random, and there is no way of predicting which numbers the system will pick. Therefore, people just guess their numbers as they buy the ticket and hope for the best. However, just because the numbers are picked randomly, it does not mean that you cannot apply some strategy. While you cannot predict the winning combination for Superlotto Plus, you can still work to increase your chances of winning. This is done by following these tips:
Combine Odd and Even Numbers
One of the strategies to use is to combine odd and even numbers. You can either pick two odd and three even numbers or three odd and two even numbers. This combination has accounted for 65% of the wins in Superlotto Plus. It is unlikely that all odd or all even numbers will win.
This might seem a bit farfetched, but data backs up the theory. Most of the Superlotto Plus winners have had a combination of numbers whose sum total lies between 89 and 151. Therefore, to increase your chances of being a winner, you should ensure that the sum total of your combination of numbers lies within that range. No matter how impractical it might seem, the idea is to give you a better chance of winning.
Combine High and Low Numbers
Just like the odd and even numbers, a combination of high and low numbers also increases your chances of being the lucky winner. 68% of Superlotto Plus results have a 3-2 or 2-3 combination of high and low numbers.
Deviate from Significant Dates
While picking a combination of numbers according to some significant dates makes it easier to pick numbers, it is limiting. When you choose to use birthdays and anniversaries as the guiding factor for your Superlotto Plus picks, you are essentially limiting your picks to numbers below 31. If you would still like to use this strategy, you can pick a combination of significant one digit dates instead. For example, combine your birth date, if it is a single digit, with the birth month, if it is also a single digit number. This could help you overcome this limitation.
Pick a Number from the Previous Draw
To increase your chances of becoming one of the Superlotto Plus winners, you can include a number from the previous draw. To make it even better, pick a number that has also appeared in other draws a number of times. It is important to note that you should only pick two numbers at most. You cannot pick all the numbers from the previous draw. It is highly unlikely, even impossible, that the same combination of numbers wins consecutively.
Swinging the Superlotto Plus results to your advantage is virtually impossible. But that should not stop you from playing a game of probabilities. You can employ different strategies to improve your chances of winning. After all, you have nothing to lose. What would your other option be anyway? To pick random numbers, which doesn’t place you in a better position anyway.
