Consider your lucky numbers

Lottoland analysis has revealed the favoured of all 49 numbers chosen by hopeful punters was 33, while the least common was unlucky number 13. 

While there is no way of scientifically proving that numbers are ‘lucky’ and ‘unlucky’ it can be useful to know what numbers are most frequently drawn. 

Statistics compiled by the Lott reveal that from the main barrel in last year the most common numbers were 17, 7, 9, 11, and 25. 

The least drawn were 6, 31, 15, and 33. 

For the Powerball itself, the most drawn number is 19 – while the least drawn is 18.

Avoid system numbers

An example of using system numbers could be choosing numbers that form a particular pattern on the ticket, from straight lines to complex patterns. 

Lottoland says this way of picking numbers will not increase chances of winning as the results of the draw will always be random.

Use system bets

A system bet allows punters to choose even more numbers than the standard amount in multiple combinations. 

This increases chances of a win dramatically but will cost punters a little more as more games are being purchased. 

System bets are popular with lotto syndicates who split the cost between players.

Use quickies

As the lotto is drawn at random, officials recommend punters choose their numbers at random too – which will also reduce the risk of a shared win if you hit the jackpot. 

According to experts humans are incapable of choosing numbers at random as the subconscious mind chooses numbers with memories or important dates. 

Experts therefore encourage hopefuls to use Quickies which pick the numbers using a random number generator.

The only drawback is the unlikely chance another player will pick the same numbers. 

Take advantage of the extras

Some draws include added features that can boost non-jackpot wins or increase a player’s chances of winning bigger prizes, at a small additional cost. 

Half of the winners in 2021 had bought a PowerHit entry which guarantees a Powerball number.

Be consistent

To win the lottery a player has to defy the odds stacked against them, meaning the numbers they choose don’t really matter. 

According to the laws of probability, all numbers have the same chance of being drawn – however there are ways of reducing the seemingly impossible odds.  

Lottoland states this probability drops the more draws that are played.  

If a punter plays every week the overall lottery odds won’t change but the chances of the player beating them does.  

Pick the most suitable lottery for you

It is a good idea to choose the jackpot that best suits a punter’s desired outcomes. 

Some players will try their hand at winning more money at higher odds while others will go for lower jackpots with a greater chance of success. 

Lottoland suggests joining a lottery syndicate to even out the costs and playing in other prize divisions which often pay out with ‘juicy’ amounts.
