Playing lottery is a quick way to become an instant millionaire. Despite the fact that the chance of winning is very small, you will __not__ win if you do __not__ buy a ticket. However if you buy one, at least you will have a chance, right? All investments carry some degree of risk, and lottery is among the highest risk of losing. Nevertheless, it’s still an investment….only with high odds of losing. You just have to be prepared for that fact.

I don’t play lotto 649 very often, because I don’t win anything big in my life yet. When I play, the jackpot must be at least $15-$20 millions range and I restrict myself to one $2 ticket each time.

Here are three rules on how I pick my numbers to increase my chance of winning.

**Rule #1:** Do NOT pick the same set of numbers that were winning numbers previously. A simple and yet important rule. As of today, none of the winning numbers are the same. If you decide to pick one of the previous winning numbers, your chance of winning is most likely decreased. You can check all the winning numbers from Day 1 here. The statistics is in excel file format, so you can easily manipulate the data in ascending/descending orders.
**Rule #2:** If three or more numbers of your current combination match the latest drawing combination, you’d better pick different numbers for the next draw. For example, the latest draw is 01 07 16 23 35 49 and your pick is 01 14 16 35 48 49. In this case 01 16 49 are the same, which means you win $10 for the latest draw; however, you may want to change at least one of these three numbers to something else. The chance of having these three same numbers to appear in the next draw is possible but highly unlikely.

**Rule #3**: This rule is optional. You may want to try it or ignore it. The rule is…sometimes one of the six numbers from the latest draw will reappear in the next draw. If your pick has one same number as the latest draw, great. If not, it’s ok too. Usually I play the same set of numbers over and over again. I use this rule only when I run into difficulty in picking my next six numbers, should circumstances such as rule #2 force me to pick different numbers.

How about you? How do you choose your lotto numbers?

I got 4 numbers on 649 last night quick pic last night but they weren’t in a row but the scanner told me I only won 10 $ instead of 100 $ am I correct or wrong in my assessment

I luv these site. Reason, people trying to rationalize strategies to win lotto with 6 slots and 49 numbers to pick. The only thing you can do is guarantee yourself at least 1 # by playing 49 times each time picking the #’s 1-49 separate on 49 lines. Good luck getting the other 5. That is why the probability of winning is 49x48x47x46x45x44 / 6x5x4x3x2x1 = 13,983,816 chances. Now if you knew 3/6 #’s then you’d have winners every day and worth people to somehow manage to spend their time and borrow couple hundred thousand $’s to win the lottery. There is no strategy, each outcome is separate. If you take 2-3 years of data you will see that eventually each # has been picked in a lottery almost equally. It’s all luck.

I have a system for 12 tickets where i constantly play those same numbers, i just bring the 2 sheets in over and over. I have rules, not similar to the ones above, like, i dont play if the prize is less then 15 million. Instead i set the money aside for a few more chances when the money is over that amount. The extra tickets i pick randomly. I dont have any set rules for the numbers i picked, i mean, some are my lucky numbers, or my parents. Some are averages of previous draws, some have the most popular numbers picked accounted for.

I will say how ever, when i play all 12 of my tickets, i have never not won something. Be it a free ticket or $5 or $20 bucks. Theres always something.

If i ever win big i will write how i play cause ill be on a island with no internet access. Untill then, good luck folks.

How I play is I buy a 20 dollar ticket and the numbers that aren’t on the ticket I play on a 5 dollar ticket

Hello, very one.

How do you actually pick the number’s?

how do you know if the numbers you pick are good or not to play

all I would like is to have a chance to win some big money on the lotto

Just pick a set of numbers. I have been playing numbers for over 40 years, not continuously, gave them up for a while and sure enough, they just started coming up. I play Atlantic 49, which is only 1.00 and you can win 1 million on that, but the second prize is only 60,000 plus, but that is all I want. I just want to have a little extra, I don’t want a million dollars, it doesn’t mean that much to me. Also there is that 25,000 free prize on there, so that is a good deal for 1.00. Stick to the same set of numbers, they eventually have to come up.

It is fixed in Canada , run by the mob in Quebec and Ontario , look at the winning locations , always 4 to 6 winners with the same numbers in Ontario and Quebec , they have people on the inside , has the government ever busted a crime ring in Canada ,the answer is no , their scam is skimming with 5 out of 6 numbers small prizes ,the large Ones go to ontarians mostly , and they get taxed by the mob ., view the prize break down they only added it lately because they suspect it’s been compromised they just don’t know how yet.

I’m just taking a shot in the dark here, but maybe since more than 63% of all the tickets sold are in Ontario that might just be why they win a little more often, just sayin’

If they pay out 10000000 how much do they take in and where does that money go

no one can be lotto discovered 100% is luck..!!

Lottery numbers are drawn at random. There is simply no way to predict the outcome. Any guess is just as good as the next one

i won 15 million in different lottries by using your formula ………thamks a lot for giving me such idea….

Dear Jacky,

Pls share the idea with me also.

Regards-Joseph

You’re an idiot. Any mathematician will tell you each draw is independent of the next so the numbers drawn in the past have absolutely NO influence on the numbers drawn in the future. Your “rules” only show that lotteries are a tax on people who are bad at math.

You don’t need to insult the writer to make your point.

The lottery is fixed, the government is playing with our emotions. Greed.

You got that right

I disagree with your methods. The most I have won has been two five numbers on the same ticket. The suggestion of not repeating at least one of the winning numbers is wrong. I am seeking professional players whose methods show at least two or more of the winning numbers on one line within four plays on every draw that is the frequency of the system employed by myself. I mention this to gauge the relative comparisons to other methods. Just putting out there.

Hi your rule #2 just cost me 10 million dollars. and I am suing you!

I had been playing this weeks winning numbers for 8 years. the same numbers all the time. My regular number 9, 19, 38,40,45,47. had all played the same numbers and ignore your rules I would be the sole winner of 10+ million dollars today. a few months ago I came across your article and employed your rules. so since last draw’s winning numbers were 7,9,21,40,44,45 I changed numbers 9,40,45 to different numbers and I lost 10 millions. now tell me what am I supposed to do?

Get a Job?

you second guessed yourself, your lack of confidence means you won’t win money or the heart of a fair maiden.

I agree the lottery system is crooked as long they have a drop system they can control the balls I asked the lottery system to change it so they have to catch the ball in the centre of the sphere and they won’t do it

keep trying

Why did you not play both?

Exactly! !! Maybe too cheap to buy two 🙂

I’ve been playing lotto 649 since the day it started around 1979 so far I have won nothing notta zilth a free ticket here and there maybe 10 dollars a couple of times so far it cost me thousands to see others win. What am I doing wrong.

Over thinking it

You’re not doing anything wrong. It’s a game of luck. Look at me I am the winner of 10 million dollars at 649. I got lucky. That’s it.

You are all playing against a computer. A number generator had you played the same numbers you were playing for the last 10 years there number will not have won. It is a computer generator picks number sequence to be played the least! Thats how they make money!

it’s not easy to win 6/49 dam it ,most of us were dream to win 6/49 ,but no one knows how to get it dam it .I need to win only 15.000$
