How To Win The Lottery – Why You Should Only Play Pick 3 Lottos
Great Article by John Jakobson
It’s easy to see why lotteries are so popular. With as low as a dollar bet (sometimes even as low as 50 cents), you have the potential to win hundreds, thousands, even millions of dollars in an instant. But if you are going to use your hard-earned money to buy tickets, you should learn a little bit about how to win the lottery. Don’t be like the masses spending money that will NEVER provide you any winnings in return. If you are going to bet on the lottery, you should start win those games that give you the best odds in winning. And currently, those games are the “pick 3″ lotteries. These lotteries are also know as “Win 3″ or “Play 3.”
Most people tend to play the “bigger” lotteries like the Powerball, MegaMillions, and other games that have payouts in excess of five million dollars. And when those games have jackpots over 100 million dollars, you can expect to find lines of people buying tickets at your local gas station or convenient store. Now, I’m not saying that you shouldn’t play those lotteries (especially when their jackpots reach into million plus range). I mean, there’s still a small chance (very, very small chance) that you will win. But the odds are so high of not winning, that you should never expect to win.
Now, dealing with Pick 3 lotteries isn’t a different story. While the odds of winning one of the major multi-million dollar jackpot lotteries is around 1 in 170 million, the odds of winning the Pick 3 lotto is a mere 1 in 1000. And that’s if you are playing to win it “straight” or exact match. If you are playing the box version, you odds are around 1 in 167. Knowing your odds of winning is a critical thing to know when trying to figure out how to win the lottery. Read more….
