Increase Your Chances of Winning Lotto

3 min read

Is winning the lotto one of your life goals? Do you ever wish you could live like a celebrity, buy a luxury car, or just live life without financial stress? Lotteries are a great way to have your chance to win millions. But how can you increase your chances of winning lotto? There is no guarantee or science to winning the lottery, but there are many ways to improve your chances. We’ve put together a list of our best tips to win lotto. 

Tips to win lotto 

1. Play lotto games with the best odds

Different lotteries have different rules and operating styles, meaning that the odds are different for each game. Some lotteries have higher odds of winning, while others give you better chances to win. However, some lotteries, like Powerball, have higher odds of winning the jackpot but great odds of winning a prize in any division. It all depends on how you want to play. Do you prefer to only play for big jackpots or would you prefer a smaller jackpot but better odds? Make sure you check the odds for what you want to give yourself the best chance of winning. 

2. Play more games

It might seem obvious, but it’s true - playing more games on your entry gives you more chances to win. You have to be in it to win it! 

3. Pick from the full number range

Many of us have numbers that have special meaning, like birthdays or anniversaries. Unfortunately, they often come from a date of the month, meaning most of our favourite numbers can only go up to 31. Australian lotteries include numbers up to 45 in their number pool. This leaves a range of numbers from 32-45 that people often neglect, but have equal chances of being drawn. Don’t miss out on millions by leaving out over a third of the chances. 

4. Play when you want to play

It can be hard to choose when and how often to play lotto. Previous winners have different strategies, proving there is no single way to play. Some people opt to play as often as they can to be sure they’re in the draw to win. No one wants to miss out for it to be the one week your numbers come up! However, other players choose to only play the big jackpots, saving their money for a bigger ticket and more chances to win. Or you might choose to only play when you want to play. Hundreds of multimillionaire winners bought their tickets because of a lucky feeling, or spur of the moment decision!

5. Check your results

Our biggest tip for winning lotto is to check your results after the game and claim your prize. Imagine putting in the work to increase your odds of winning and never finding out about your win! Maximum claim periods depend on which state you purchased the ticket in and can range from 6 months to 7 years, so it’s best to claim as soon as possible after your win. 


Best of luck!
