ODD-EVEN LOTTERY TIPS
When you select your Lotto numbers, try to have a relatively even mix of odd and even numbers. All odd numbers or all even numbers are rarely drawn, occurring only two percent of the time. The best mix is to have 2/4, 4/2 or 3/3, which means two odd and four even, or four odd and two even, or three odd and three even. One of these three patterns will occur in 83 percent of the drawings.
HIGH-LOW NUMBER TIPS
Winning numbers are usually spread across the entire number field. If we take a number field and cut it in half, we have the low half and the high half. In a 42-number game, numbers 1 to 21 would be in the low half, and numbers 22 to 42 would be in the high half. All high numbers or all low numbers are rarely drawn, occurring only 1 percent of the time. The best mix is to have 2/4, 4/2 or 3/3, which means two high and four low, or four high and two low, or three high and three low. Winning number groups with these three patterns occur in 78 percent of all drawings.
NUMBER GROUP LOTTO TIPS
Look at a list of past winning numbers for the Lotto game you play, and you’ll see, more often than not, that one or more of the number groups is not represented. For example, in the combination 5-14-17-32-38-42, there are no 20’s. Tracking and studying Number Groups can help you decide which group to omit and which group to give extra heavy play.
GAMES SKIPPED NUMBER SELECTION TIPS
List the number of games skipped (games out) since the last hit (win) for each of the winning numbers during the last five games. Then mark the number of times each skip occurred. If any skip from 0 to 5 did not occur, play the Lotto numbers that are out that many games. (Help working with lotto games skipped.)
SUM TIPS – PLAY A BALANCED LOTTO GAME
After you choose six numbers you want to play, add them together and make sure that the sum of the six numbers adds up to somewhere between 100 and 158. Sums that fall within that range will account for over 70 percent of all lottery jackpots won.
REPEAT HITS NUMBER STRATEGY
In Philippines Lotto 6/42, on average, one lottery number will be a repeat hit from the last drawing 65 percent of the time.
HOT NUMBER TIPS
Numbers that have been out (losers) for four games or less account for about half of the winning numbers drawn. Losing numbers that have been out ten games or less account for 84 percent of all the winning numbers. This tells us that hot numbers are more likely to hit, but don’t forget to include at least one long shot in your group of 6.
COLD NUMBER LOTTERY TIPS
It is difficult to know when a cold number will end a long losing streak. If you play a number every drawing because you think it is due, you could be chasing it for many months. (Number 45 in New York Lotto sat out 100 drawings before it finally hit.) Although, when a number has been out for 70 games or so, it might be worth chasing.
