### Lottery Strategy Based on the Most Popular Numbers

Posted: Friday, Apr 12,2019 | Time: 07:42 am | Edited by: The Lottery Lab Staff

Lottery players either pick numbers themselves or let a computer give them Quick Picks. One reason that people choose Quick Picks is that they believe that since the drawings are random, then using randomly selected numbers will help them.  Those who pick their own numbers may do so because they believe that there are numbers unique to them that are especially lucky.  There are also people who take a methodological approach when it comes to picking their numbers. Here are some interesting strategies for people who enjoy creating lottery systems-

## The most popular numbers

### Playing the numbers

People often assume that if certain numbers are appearing more often than others, then they are the best numbers to play. You can create such a lottery strategy easily at The Lottery Lab by fetching the lottery data and determining the numbers that appear more frequently as compared to other numbers.

### Avoiding the numbers

An alternative way of thinking is that if a number has appeared recently, it is less likely to show up again. It’s like when a coin lands on heads three times in a row, many people will bet on tails showing up for the fourth flip. To use this strategy, you need to map out which numbers have been appearing more frequently recently and avoid picking them on your playslip.

## Taking the Hot Number Strategy a Step Further

Look for the patterns and take your popular lottery number strategy a step further. Look at the combinations and patterns that are drawn most frequently. For instance, does 4 show up more often with 60? There are other patterns you can look for like how many odd versus even numbers appear and how often consecutive numbers tend to be drawn. There are various patterns and combinations you can mine the data if you enjoy looking for patterns.

## How to find out which numbers are trending?
