With such high prize money on the line, people are using a variety of techniques to boost their luck a Win! Let’s have a look at some of the ways, being used by people in picking their lottery numbers:

Numbers With Personal Significance

If you are someone who believes in lucky numbers, then certainly you belong to this category. There are some people who play the number sequence they consider lucky. People belonging to this group select their lottery numbers that center around important dates or events in life. This means, for example — you might pick your grandmother’s birth date, month, and year along with your mother’s birth date, month, and year. By picking such numbers you create a mix of significant numbers. These significant lucky numbers may include -

➥Birthdays — The birth dates of anyone close to your family.

➥Anniversaries — This includes anniversary dates or even months of a particular event.

➥Age- Use of age either your own or someone dear, is quite a common practice.

➥Phone numbers — Smart breaking down of phone numbers has also turned out to be lucky numbers for some.

➥Addresses — Your current or childhood address, is another tactic used by people these days.

But there are few strategy players who avoid this technique. They believe that numbers with personal significance to you are likely to be used by others too. Suppose you are using birth dates, you will tend to focus your numbers between 1–31. This is the very reason strategy players avoid this technique. Because it increases the likelihood of sharing the jackpot if you win. But “if” stands as an important factor here, because sharing a million-dollar jackpot is much better than not winning a share at all. With all these significant numbers in mind, you can check their probability and frequency of winning.
