## 1. Sums of Number Sets

The SUM of each of your sets of combinations to play can mean the difference between Winning and Losing. For example: Let's say one of your sets of numbers to play was (3 7 12 23 31 37) which has a sum of 113. While the combination itself doesn't look that bad, the sum is still just below the average sum of winning numbers that have been drawn. The average (SUM) for a Pick 6 Lotto Game is between 121-186. The average (SUM) for a Pick 5 game is between 63-116.

## 2. Odds and Evens

Another thing to keep in mind is not to play sets of numbers that are all Odd or all Even. Example: You should not play combinations like 3 17 21 37 41 53 - all Odd or 2 8 18 28 34 42 - all Even. While this may happen some time in the future the odds of it happening are quite slim. You want to get all the odds you can in your favor. So try to split up your sets of numbers with say (3) odd and (3) even or (2) even and (4) odd etc.

## 3. Consecutive Number Selections

As you make your selections it's a good idea to include number selections that run consecutively. For instance let's say you have chosen the numbers 15 25 and 37. You should also consider selecting a consecutive number either higher or lower as well. A very high percentage of winning selections will have (2) numbers drawn this way.

## 4. Neighboring Numbers

When you get ready to select your numbers, it's always a good idea to have a list of the previous numbers drawn. Scan the drawings to see how the Neighbor numbers have been doing. For instance the numbers drawn for New York Lotto54 April 6, 1996 was 1-10-12-29-38-50-43 then on April 10, 1996 the numbers 14-16-30-31-46-53-13 were drawn. If you look at the drawing you will see that the numbers (12 & 29) were the key Neighbor numbers to the very next drawing. The next drawing came in with (13 14 30 31) that's four numbers out of the seven numbers drawn.

## 5. Bad Consecutive Numbers

There are a few sets of numbers that you should not play as they a very slim chance of ever being drawn. Consecutive sets of numbers at the beginning and ending of your lotto game should not be played. Example: Your lotto game has (35) total numbers. Don't play the numbers 1 2 3 4 5 or 31 32 33 34 35. Your lotto game has (5) total numbers. Don't play the numbers 1 2 3 4 5 6 or 46 47 48 49 50 51. Each week people spend thousands of dollars on sets of numbers just like these.

## 6. Spread of the Numbers

Another point to remember is that most lotto games have a number range that extends beyond that of the calendar. If your lotto game has (49) total numbers and your not playing any numbers higher than (31) you may have to wait a very long time before your numbers come in. One way to overcome this problem is to start your number selection at the high end and slowly work down from there.

## 7. Numbers Database

As amazing as it may seem you Do Not Need hundreds of past drawing in order to pinpoint the winning lottery numbers. At the very most you could use (50) drawings but you can do very well by using (10) drawings. Most of the time the numbers to be drawn next will have already appeared in the last ten drawings. If you track the numbers you will probably find that a few of them have been drawn quite often. If you find a few numbers that have been Hot but have Not been drawn for a couple of drawings you should consider them.

## 8. Repeating Numbers

Repeating numbers are ones that seem to repeat themselves more frequently than any of the others. You should watch for numbers that have a history of repeating themselves after being drawn. Just by knowing this could mean the difference between cashing a ticket or throwing it into a recycle bin. Lets say the number (12) has a history of repeating itself after being drawn and that it was just drawn today. You might want to use it as a key number when you wheel your selections.

## 9. Quickdraw Lottery Tips

TIPS for QuickDraw the game you can play every five minutes. You select from (1 to 10) numbers. The most popular lottery play is for (3 to 4) numbers. You can make some serious money playing (6) numbers. As you know the game is pretty fast so you don't have a lot of time to be writing the numbers down. Make yourself a chart using squares about 3/4 of an inch. Number them just like the QuickDraw board 1-10 in the first row 11-20 in the second and so on. Now that you have a tool to work with you can chart the games. The first drawing you chart call it (1) the second (2) the third (3) etc.

So if the numbers drawn in the first drawing were 12 15 23 34 35 41 43 46 56 57 58 65 66 67 71 72 74 76 78 79 each one of them would have a number (1) in the corner of each numbers square. Then the second drawings numbers were 10 11 12 23 24 25 36 38 39 43 44 55 56 57 66 67 71 72 73 74 each one of these would have a (2) in their corner. Then game number three is over and the numbers were 2 7 9 10 14 16 22 23 25 28 32 33 43 45 56 57 63 65 78 79 each one of these would have a (3) in their corner. After only three lottery drawings you will find that numbers are repeating and that certain numbers are always being drawn with these numbers. This is the pattern that you are looking for. Now find three lottery numbers that have been drawn over 40% of the time. Next find two other numbers that were drawn with these numbers at least twice. This will give you three sets of three lottery numbers to play. Then mix set1 with set2 and set2 with set3 and set1 with set3 and this will give you three sets of six numbers to play. You can play all these for a cost of $6 dollars a game. You should play them for at least five games in a row. If you have not broken even or made a profit after five games you must either stop or re-chart the games again.

## 10. Daily Numbers

The 3 & 4 Digit Daily Numbers usually run in short term TRENDS. If a number has not been drawn for ten lottery drawings, it is a Due number. Include the due numbers in your sets, and after you hit with this number, stay with it for at least three days. Another way to pick up a number for your three or four digit set is by selecting the one that is more apt to repeat. You have two ways that this can be done. One as above - to play the due lottery number that was just drawn to repeat. Use a number that has been drawn more frequently than any of the others. You can use the day of the month to help you in your number selections too.

If the day of the month is May 3rd, use a (3) for one of your numbers. If the day of the month is in the double digits use the last digit for your number set, for instance, if today was May 24th, you would use the (4) for your number set. As you know one digit usually repeats from the previous days drawing. To help pinpoint the second number find the number that is drawn most often for the day of the week that you are playing. For instance, in New York the (0) is drawn most often on Tuesdays and Fridays. The week of Feb 1-5 had lots of (7)'s drawn, the (4) was due and on Friday 2-5-99 the (470) was drawn and I had it straight.

Once you've made your selection of two or three lottery numbers, there are many ways to finish. You could wheel all the rest of the numbers with your selections. Or you could select the last number by the angles. Usually two or three of the numbers drawn will be at about a 45 degree angle from one of the first drawn ones. This angle could of course be up or down. On April 21, 1996 the numbers 915 and on April 22, 1996 436 was drawn. Notice on both of these the angle for the last number was upward. Also if you play the (Doubles) 00 11 22 33 44 55 66 77 88 either put them at the beginning or at the end. They hit around 40% of the time and usually appear like this (877 833 466) etc.
