The lottery is one of the most popular games of chance in many countries, and it is that who would not want to win a few hundred euros, right? Surely you are wondering how to win the lottery and you even imagine what you would do with the money if you were rich, if you were one of the lucky ones ... a long vacation, the house of your dreams, or perhaps a luxury car ...
But where do you find the method by which you can match the winning numbers?
Well the truth is there is no technique or a formula that teaches you how to win the lottery, it is all a matter of statistics. Therefore, what you can do is apply some strategies that allow you to increase your chances of winning.
That is what I am going to talk about in this post. I am going to describe some of these strategies so that you can apply them. I will also give you some tips and some warnings that I think are important when you are going to play the lottery.
In this post you will find:
Strategies to increase your chances of winning the lottery
Play the lottery in groups
One way to increase your chances of winning the lottery is to join a group.
It can be a lottery group with your co-workers, with your friends from the gym, with friends from college or with any other group you belong to.
The important thing is that everyone is willing to share the prize if they are a winner.
Apparently, the drawback is that being a shared prize, you will receive less money, in the case of being a winner. But that's better than receiving nothing, don't you think?
Define your frequency of play
In other words, plan how often and in which draw you are going to play. It can be once a week, twice a month, etc.
As an example, instead of playing one ticket every day, you can play multiple tickets once a week for a better chance of winning a specific and perhaps bigger prize. Also so that you can organize your budget and not get out of it.
Buy multiple tickets
This is pure logic. The more tickets you have, the more chances you have to win a prize.
As an example, if the probability that you win the lottery is one in 10,000,000 when you buy a ticket, it will increase when you buy 25 tickets, in other words, your chances will be 25 out of 10,000,000.
Yes, they are still few, I know. But look at it like this: having 25 tickets gives you more possibilities than having just 1.
Choose lottery games with fewer constituent numbers
It is a matter of statistics. The fewer numbers that participate, the greater the chances that you will win the prize.
But make no mistake believing that if one day is less popular and not many people buy the lottery, you have a better chance of winning. This is not the case, unless it is a giveaway where the winner will be one of the buyers.
The number of people playing the lottery on a particular day does not affect your odds.
Of course, when there are fewer players, it is less likely that there will be multiple winners.
Always play the same number or select a random combination?
Statistically speaking, all numbers have the same chances of winning. Whether you choose that special date or any number considered weird or cursed, or those winning numbers from previous years that some people may think will never come out again.
Of course, when you choose a date, you are limiting your opportunities, since 31 is the maximum number of days that a month has, in this way you will be excluding the upper figures. The same can be said for the number of months: 12.
However, in Spain when we talk about the Christmas Lottery draw, year after year numbers are demanded that correspond to dates of relevant events in history or that correspond to the death of famous people.

How to select a winning lottery number?
When you search the internet, you will find strategies as to which number to select, like these:
- Do a study to identify the patterns or characteristics of previous drawings. For this, you can use the history of the winning number from previous years.
- Pick a combination and be true to it. In other words, don't let a management computer select the number for you. And as long as you are going to buy lottery tickets, it is the same number.
- Do not choose a number that refers to a special date. The numbers don't have to make sense. This is because of what I was telling you before, if we choose dates we are excluding numbers above 31.
- Pick lucky numbers and discard the unlucky numbers. For this, when you carry out a lottery study, you will see which numbers have come out more frequently (the lucky ones) and which ones have not (the unlucky ones).
- At the same time, some websites recommend that you do not choose combinations that have obtained results in the past. Because they say, the chances of the same number appearing twice are very remote. However, in Spain there are two numbers that have been repeated in the Gordo Christmas Lottery, these are 15,640 (in 1956 and 1978) and 20,297 (in 1993 and 2006).
Tips for playing the lottery
- Get organized. Create a budget and don't get out of it.
- If you play the lottery in a group, make sure you have a copy of the ticket or participation ticket.
- The lucky number does not exist. It is equally likely that all the numbers will come up. Then do not trust the strategies that claim to give you the magic combination with which in summary you will know how to win the lottery. The winning number is absolutely random, statistically, no matter what number you pick.
- There are not there is no "magic" place where you can buy the lottery and make sure you win a prize. What sometimes happens is that you can tap the prize at a location multiple times due to the number of people who have purchased their tickets at that location. The more people shop at the same place, the chances that one of the buyers will win the prize increases. In Spain as an example, mythical administrations to buy Christmas Lottery They are: The Golden Witch in Sort (Lleida), Doña Manolita in Madrid, Valdés in Barcelona and the Ormaechea lottery in Bilbao. And it is that in these administrations the award has been played several times, and each time you will see more people queuing to buy their tenth.
- Once the lottery drawing has passed, be sure to check your tickets. Some sweepstakes have different prizes and different ways to win. Go to the lottery administrations to verify it. Even if you don't have the jackpot number, you may have won another prize.
- If you have won the main prize of the draw, first of all, congratulations !! You should contact an attorney to advise you and accompany you to collect the award.
- Reinvest your earnings. If you have won a prize, not the main prize, I mean a modest prize, use it to buy more tickets next time to increase your chances of winning the main prize.
The following warnings will teach you how to win the lottery and not die trying.
1. Play smart, do not go out of your budget and your planning. Taking care of your personal finances is essential, so keep a check and not be tempted to gamble "for revenge" to avoid losses.
2. Avoid scams that abound on the Internet. These gambling scams prey on people looking to make easy, fast and effortless money. Beware of websites that:
- They ask you to send money to receive a big prize.
- They use talismans, rituals, mathematical combinations to attract luck and thus obtain important prizes.
- They send you emails or correspondence notifying you of a prize from a contest in which you have not participated.
- If you are going to play the lottery on the Internet, make sure they are legal websites, which are supported by the government.
3. Beware of programs or systems that tell you how to win the lottery.. On the Internet there are many websites that offer you this type of formula, apparently in exchange for a payment. They will promise you many things, such as by way of example:
- That you are going to win the first prize in the lottery.
- That you are going to win the first lottery prize in a certain time.
- They guarantee your money back if you don't win a prize.
But the truth is that, and as I have already said several times, there is no method that tells you point by point how to win the lottery. The winning number is chosen at random, there are no magic formulas.

It's okay to dream of winning the lottery, but now I want to propose some practical ideas, so that you can start earning extra money while you wait for luck to come to you in the form of a jackpot.
