With huge rolling jackpot prizes, it is natural to play the lottery. Here are some tips to increase your odds of winning the Powerball lottery-

## Avoid the Quick-Pick Method

Before choosing the  “Quick-Pick” option, understand the workings of this method. This method follows a complex mathematical pattern designed by the lottery operators, but the mathematics are not informed by the actual game results.  This ultimately means that numbers selected by “Quick-Pick” aren’t any more likely to don’t have any better luck than you pick manually. However, since a QP ticket gives you a  set of random numbers, there’s a possibility that you will get numbers that have a low probability of coming up in that particular game.

## Utilize The Entire Range of Combinations

Choosing birthdates, anniversary dates or other special dates brings joy to people who cherish their lucky numbers. But by doing this they limit themselves to numbers in the range of 1-31. Even if these numbers do win there are pretty high chances that others will have played the same numbers and you will have to split your winnings. If you spread the numbers out across the whole range,  you have a better chance of taking the whole prize for yourself.

## Be Consistent

To get the hang of a particular game, do some homework. Most lotteries have secondary games or add-on games that change the odds that certain numbers will win.  Experiment with past results and future predictions to develop an understanding of the game and find your perfect mixture of numbers.  Then, if you feel that your numbers are good, stick with them and have some patience.

Your odds of winning the jackpot is 1 in 175 million. Which makes it almost impossible to win the jackpot. So trust your instincts and don’t play if you feel that you can’t beat the odds. Nothing can be a better indication than your own instincts.

### Never get carried away

Jackpot amounts are huge and you might feel compelled to play the lottery but there should be some limits. If you win the jackpot, you can grant your loved ones financial security or fulfill your dreams or quit your job or go on a world tour. but only “if” you win the lottery. Don’t get so carried away with playing the lottery that you actually lose your ability to reach your dreams. It could be the most foolish mistake you will regret your whole life. Set a limited budget to play the lottery and don’t get caught up in “lottery fever”. There is a fine line between something you enjoy and something that controls you. Never let the lottery become your addiction.
