How to Improve Your Powerball Lottery Odds by Millions

Odd or Evens in the Powerball lottery

One factor to consider in picking your Powerball lottery numbers is the ratio between the odd / even lotto numbers.

Looking at the past history of all lottery games there appears a pattern that shows you would be better off by not playing all odd or all even numbers.

Example of playing all even numbers 2.4.6.20.40

Example of playing all odd balls 3.11.21.35.47

play mix hits

5 odd 0 even 9 as a percentage 3.10 %

4 odd 1 even 38 as a percentage 13.10 %

3 odd 2 even 88 as a percentage 30.34 %

2 odd 3 even 106 as a percentage 36.55 %

1 odd 4 even 39 as a percentage 13.45 %

0 odd 5 even 10 as a percentage 3.45 %

Looking at the table above, you may improve your odds by playing either 3 odd /2 even or 2 odd / 3 even. These rations accounted for almost 2/3 of all past

winners.

30.34 + 36.55 = 66.8%

Or almost 2/3 of past winning number sets follow this rule.

These Powerball lotto ratios are always changing, but this pattern does occur across all Powerball lotto / lottery games.

How To Increase Your Odds Of Winning The Lotto By More Than 1000%

Do you want to know how to increase your odds of winning the lotto by more than 1000%? It actually can be done, but it involves changing the way you play.

The best way to explain how to do it is with an example. Let’s say that you are a regular Powerball player. Let’s also say that you live in Indiana. Indiana offers a game called Hoosier Lotto. Hoosier Lotto is a 6/48 game and the odds of winning are approximately 1-in-12.3-million. We all know the Powerball odds, Right? Powerball is 1-in-195-million.

Now, let’s say that you quit playing Powerball and spend the exact same money playing Hoosier Lotto instead. What would that do to your odds of winning? You are actually 15.8 times more likely to win the Hoosier Lotto jackpot than you are the Powerball jackpot, with the same amount of money spent, based on the odds of each game. That means, by switching games, you increased your odds of winning the jackpot by 1580%.

1580% – That’s HUGE! If you lived in the state of Indiana and played Powerball instead of Hoosier Lotto for years, you would have blown so much money on an impossible dream. If you played Hoosier Lotto instead, you might have already been a millionaire. That same logic applies to no matter where you live, if you have been playing the wrong lottery game.

Winning the Hoosier Lotto jackpot would be a life-changer. The Hoosier Lotto jackpots reach into the millions, sometimes tens of millions of dollars. Winning that would make you happy, wouldn’t it?

The strategy that applies to the Hoosier Lotto in Indiana also applies to other lotteries across the U.S. Here are just a few examples of how much you would increase your odds of winning if you only just replace your Powerball purchases with the following games:

• The Pick in Arizona: 2785% increase in odds

• Illinois Lotto: 1950% increase in odds

• Colorado Lotto: 3714% increase in odds

• Kansas Hot Lotto Sizzler: 1773% increase in odds

• Pick 6 lotto in New Jersey: 1393% increase in odds

• Megabucks in Oregon: 3250% increase in odds.

The same strategy could be applied to other lotteries, no matter the country that you live.

Take Canada, for example. The biggest jackpot game in Canada is Lotto Max, with jackpots ranging from $10 to $50 million. Now, the Lotto Max game is different, in that it costs $5 to play. For $5, you get three lines. The odds of winning the jackpot, per $5 play, are approximately 1-in-28.6-million.

Let’s say you live in Ontario, Canada. In Ontario, a 50 cent game called Ontario 49 is offered. It offers a million dollar jackpot and the odds of winning are approximately 1-in-14-million. So, then, for the $5 you spend on one Lotto Max ticket, you could buy ten Ontario 49 tickets. With 10 Ontario 49 tickets, your odds of winning the jackpot would be approximately 1-in-1.4-million. That would increase your odds of winning, over Lotto Max, by 2042%.

But you might be thinking that the $1 million prize that Ontario 49 offers isn’t big enough to really be a life changer. If that’s the case, even playing Lotto 6/49 is better. Lotto 649 offers jackpots of $3 million plus, often reaching into the tens of millions of dollars. The game costs $2 to play and the odds of winning the jackpot are approximately 1-in-14-million. So for every $5 Lotto Max ticket you buy, you could buy 2.5 Lotto 6/49 tickets. That means that for every $5 spent on Lotto 6/49, your odds of winning the jackpot would be approximately 1-in-5.6-million. That’s still an increase in odds of 510%.

We can use the same reasoning whichever country you live in. For example, if you live in the UK and play EuroMillions, you could substitute that game for Lotto Plus 5, which costs half as much to play, and you would increase your odds of winning the jackpot by 1671%

Now you understand that just changing the way you play the lotto can increase your odds of winning by 1000% or more. So stop playing big jackpot games like Powerball, Mega Millions, EuroMillions, and Lotto Max. Pick a better game, and you will increase your odds of winning by more than 1000%.

Boys of Summer Warming Up

The Winter Olympics may be a hot topic in most of the world, but in America, the Boys of Summer already are grabbing headlines as they frolic on base paths at warm-weather spring training locales in Florida and Arizona.

The big prize, of course, is the Fall Classic, captured last year by the Chicago White Sox, who won 100 regular-season games en route to their first World Series title in 88 years.

The Chisox also copped 11 of 12 post-season games while disposing of Boston, the Los Angeles Angels and, finally, Houston.

Clubs will report to training sites throughout the week, with the first spring games slated for March 1.

The regular season will begin April 2 with the White Sox hosting Cleveland, which almost caught them at the wire in last year’s American League Central Division race.

One sure sign that baseball is just around the corner is that 2006 season win totals began popping up on Las Vegas sports book boards over the weekend.

Futures have been posted since before the 2005 World Series became history.

“It’s like a blur,” said Hilton SuperBook oddsmaker Jeff Sherman. “One season just runs into the next.”

According to Hilton oddsmakers, no team will achieve the century mark in victories this year.

The New York Yankees, pegged for 97 1/2 wins, top the Majors.

“Actually, that’s a lower total than we’ve had on the Yankees in several years,” Sherman said.

“They may have weak spots pitching-wise, but their lineup always commands attention.”

St. Louis checks in at 93 1/2 wins, Boston at 92 1/2 and the White Sox at 92.

At the other end of the spectrum, Kansas City comes in at 63 1/2, Florida at 66 1/2, Tampa Bay at 69 and Colorado at 69 1/2.

Sherman says an “elasticity effect” comes into play when oddsmakers calculate season win totals from one year to the next.

“Teams that show great improvement one season are likely to win less the next,” he said.

“Teams that have a dramatic drop win more.”

Initially, Sherman notes, the SuperBook doesn’t expect the season over/unders to draw a lot of action.

“The bulk of it will come the week before the (regular) season starts,” he said.

Play at the Hilton is minus $1.15 both ways; other books, such as the Stratosphere, are dealing with a minus $1.10 line.

“We trying to stir up interest among the players,” Race and Sports Director Robert Jaynes said.

Most Popular Pairs For Pick 3 Lotto

Before I begin, let me say that the true answer to that questions varies from state to state in short-term trends. But I want explore a method for selecting pick 3 pairs using simple math. You might just be surprised at the results. Let’s see how we can put our pairs together.

We know that the pick 3 lotto has 3 pools of 10 balls numbered 0 through 9. This means that using each number only once in a pair, the lowest possible sum of any 2 digits is 1 (0+1), and the highest possible sum of any 2 digits is 17 (8+9). Using the illustration below, you can see the number of possible pairs for each sum is given.

1 – 1 (0-1)

2 – 1 (0-2)

3 – (1-2, 0-3)

4 – (0-4, 1-3)

5 – (0-5, 1-4, 2-3)

6 – (0-6, 1-5, 2-4)

7 – (0-7, 1-6, 2-5, 3-4)

8 – (0-8, 1-7, 2-6, 3-5)

9 – (0-9, 1-8, 2-7, 3-6, 4-5)

10 – (1-9, 2-8,3-7,4-6)

11 – (2-9, 3-8, 4-7, 5-6)

12 – (3-9, 4-8, 5-7)

13 – (4-9, 5-8, 6-7)

14 – (5-9, 6-8)

15 – (6-9, 7-8)

16 – (7-9)

17 – (8-9)

Notice the sum of 9 has five pairs, while all other sums have only four or fewer pairs? This means that any two digits in the pick 3 drawing should equal 9 more than any other sum.

Using the 9 sum pairs (0-9, 1-8, 2-7, 3-6, 4-5) gives you a great starting point to create your winning combinations. While you still must select a third number, there are certain trends such as the neighbors trend to help you out.

The neighbors trend is that most draws contain at least one adjoining (neighboring) number. For example, a draw of 1-4-2 where the 1 and the 2 are neighbors. Now let’s see what our five 9 sum pairs look like with adjoining numbers.

The 0-9 pair would be played as box combinations like this: 0-9-1 and 0-9-8. Whereas the 1 neighbors the 0 and the 8 neighbors the 9.

The 1-8 pair would be played as box combinations like this: 1-8-2, 1-8-9, 1-8-0, 1-8-7. Whereas the 2 neighbors the 1, the 9 neighbors the 8, the 0 neighbors the 1 and the 7 neighbors the 8.

Just do the same for each 9 sum pair and you will end up with a list of combinations to play as boxed wagers. Good luck and always remember, never play more than you can afford to lose.
