If you are a regular lottery player, you must have stumbled upon unwanted suggestions related to the lottery. Whether it's about winning the lottery or keeping your windfall flowing. But things you read on the internet are not necessarily true. Here is a list of 4 lottery suggestions you often hear but should avoid!
Sorry to disappoint you but this is not how statistic works! Experts recommend going for less popular numbers because it decreases the chances of other people picking the same number combination as you. If you are lucky and your number wins, there are fewer chances that you will be splitting your jackpot. But picking rarer numbers won’t increase your chances of getting a bigger payout. And even if you do ending up splitting your jackpot with other winners, it is still better than winning no jackpot at all!
It is highly unlikely that someone discarded a winning ticket. But what you should do is double check your lottery ticket before throwing it away. You might have not won the jackpot but there are smaller prizes as well as secondary games for losing tickets. Therefore, stop looking for lottery tickets on the street or in trash bins. And start double-checking your lottery tickets before throwing them away.
This advice is not wrong, mathematically, but it’s not a good idea. Consider that the odds of winning Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292 million. If you buy 5 Powerball tickets, your odds of winning the jackpot are 5 in 292 million. It still doesn’t guarantee that you will win the jackpot but you now have $10 less in your bank account! And if you are thinking about buying all possible combinations, like Stefan Mandel, you might want to read this article!
Changing your number means you’ll make it harder for your family or close friends to reach out to you! Friends can be the joy of your life and cutting all your friends off might just depress you. Instead, after winning, do this simple test. Call all your friends and ask them if they need money but don’t tell them that you’ve won the lottery. Those who say yes to money are in actual need because they are asking you to lend money not hand-outs. And those who say no, will not ask for money later when they learn that you’ve won the lottery. By doing so, you won’t have to cut your friends off to avoid hand-outs.
Many people just want to win some money. And in order to win money, they will do anything they hear on TV or read on the internet. But sometimes you need to sit back and think if it’s even correct. We hope this article is helpful.
