If you want to win the lottery, break the habits of choosing the so called ‘good’ numbers, picking out numbers at random, and copying the numbers given by ‘psychics’ in newspapers. What you need to do instead is to study the past winning numbers.
A lottery fact that numerous lottery coaches and statisticians have found out is that particular lotto numbers appear more frequently than other lotto numbers. Contrary to the popular belief that the lottery numbers will be drawn at random, it has been proven and tested that this isn’t the case. This is what many lotto experts call the “frequency theory”.
To utilize this theory, and put it into practice, you should find out the most popular numbers (from recent lottery drawings) and use those lottery numbers as your future selections. Doing so will maximize your chances of picking a winning combination. This may be conflicting to popular belief or the average lotto player’s way of thinking, but studies have proved that it is true.
So, how can you apply the frequency theory to better your odds in the lottery? What you should do is look at the previous winning numbers over a period of 30-60 days. Create a basic chart, starting from zero to forty six (or whatever range is available in your lottery). Then, you want to record the frequency that each number was picked out over the period of time that you decided on. From that graph, you want to select the lottery numbers that were most often drawn. You will note that particular lotto numbers are “hot” (most frequent), and other lotto numbers are “cold” (least frequent).
Research has consistently shown that selecting the “hot” numbers is a better strategy than choosing the “cold” ones. The odds of winning the jackpot are still against you, but you will stand a better than the the clueless lottery players who don’t understand that there is more to the lottery than just luck.
