That’s almost 710 lifetimes, provided you live a hundred years each lifetime. Below are some tips to increase your chances of winning the Mega Millions and tilt the odds in your favor.


Review past drawing


It is a good idea to review past drawings to see what numbers are likely to play in any of the 5 positions in the Mega Millions. Some numbers are just not likely to play in certain positions. For example, in the Mega Millions you choose 5 numbers from 1 to 75 for each ticket plus one mega ball number. If you should pick a ticket, let’s say 1, 13, 18, 52, 61, and mega ball number 15. The number 1 would be in position one, 13 would be in position 2, 18 would be in position 3 and so on. When you look at past drawing you will notice that certain numbers appear in position number 1 mostly as do only certain numbers are popular in respective positions. It might be that number from 1 to 38 are popular in position number 1, numbers from 6 to 49 are popular in number 2, 12 to 58 are popular in position 3, 20 to 66 are popular in position 4 and numbers from 31 to 75 are popular in position number 5. So reviewing past drawings will give you an idea of what numbers are popular and most likely to play in each positions.


Pick your own numbers.


When you buy quick picks, it is likely that it may give randomly generated numbers outside of the ranges stated above. By picking your own numbers you get a chance to pick the numbers you’ve learned are most likely to play. Also the lottery is less likely to play all odd numbers or all even numbers, and the quick pick system just might give you a ticket will all odds or all even numbers.


Play your same numbers all the time


I like to think that changing your numbers on every drawing is like running from your luck. The lottery plays a different number every time it plays and it is highly unlikely that a drawing will repeat itself. So you really want to play your same numbers every time the lottery play, at some point, your numbers may come up a winner.


Play smaller games


If you are just interested in winning something in the lottery, playing a smaller game like the Florida Fantasy 5, a pick 5/36 game or the Florida’s Lottery Lucky Money game which pay out jackpots from $550k and up to a millions at times. The odds of winning these games are about 1 in 376,992 and 1 in 3 million respectively. You are more likely to win playing one of these smaller games. Even though the jackpot payouts are smaller, it is still a life changer for most people. You can use our Secured Number List to help you win the Florida Fantasy 5.


Play in a pool


Playing in a pool can dramatically increase your chances of winning the lottery. If on your own, you bought 2 tickets, you have doubled your chances of winning the lottery. If within a pool you have pooled resourced to buy 100 tickets, you are now 100 times more likely to win. So you can see that pooling can dramatically increase your chances of winning the Mega Millions or any other lottery game.
