Common Mistakes Made by Lotto Players

If you are new into lotto, there is a need to acquire a lot of knowledge before you start playing. The ways used by many people in choosing lottery numbers can, in fact, affect their chances of winning the lotto or melate game. In this post, you will learn some of the things not to do when trying to pick your lotto numbers.

Using Special Events

lotto playing cardSome people like picking lotto numbers based on namedays, wedding date, or birthday. For instance, if someone was born on 20th of the month, then that person probably picks the number 20 for the lottery. The mistake happens when all lottery numbers are picked based on birthdays or personal date numbers. As you know, there are 31 days in a month.

Therefore, if you use this given technique to choose your lottery numbers, then the highest a person can pick is 31. However, most lotteries from across the world have a range of 49 numbers to choose from. When you choose based on your birthday or special event, you tend to forget numbers from 32 to 49. Using this technique makes your chance of winning the lottery quite slimmer.

Picking Numbers in Series

Another mistake made by many people playing the lottery is picking numbers in a given ordered pattern. For instance, you may find someone choosing numbers like 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, or even choosing odd numbers only like 1, 7, 15, 23, 35, 41… and so on. If numbers were chosen following a pattern, anyone who has been studying the lottery would win the jackpot each week. In real life, lotto numbers do not follow any given pattern but are generated by a random machine, in completely random order. Therefore, avoid choosing numbers that follow any given sequence.

Avoid Lucky Numbers

The truth is that there are no lucky numbers. Every person is different and has a different story and the lucky numbers will be unique to you. Finding your lucky numbers may be a lifetime job. It is unfortunate that each week you will see people trying to pick the lucky number 7, or any other number they think could be lucky. Some choose numbers that were drawn recently, believing that such numbers will be drawn again.

Using Lottery Tipsters

Nowadays, there are a lot of lottery tipsters found online. It is unfortunate that a lot of people are using these tipsters to play lotto games and lotteries. In this case, they are using numbers recommended by other people. However, this is a mistake as many other people will use the same numbers given by the tipsters.
