Powerball prizes

Smart Strategies

So instead of going after just one big prize professional lotto players instead aim to win multiple medium prizes and a lot of smaller prizes consistently so they can build up their winnings over time.

Many lottery millionaires who admit to using a mathematical system have never won a jackpot prize in their lives. Instead they have built up their fortunes from multiple smaller wins which they have won over a period of time (and not all together). Of course there are also those who aimed for multiple jackpot wins as well but to win the jackpot multiple times does require luck even when you are using a scientifically based system (though you will have a much better chance than ordinary players).

Lucky Numbers

What about using lucky numbers?

Well let’s get one thing straight, there are no such thing as “lucky powerball numbers” or lucky numbers at all for that matter.

The closest thing you can get to powerball lucky numbers are “hot numbers” which are not really the same thing.

Hot numbers are those numbers that seem to occur in winning lines more frequently than others – at least statistically speaking.

Many professional lottery players will incorporate hot numbers into their “wheels” to give them a slight extra edge in the game though many others totally ignore them claiming it is pseudo-science .

Conversely there are “cold numbers” that are rarely drawn in winning lines and so many professional lotto players avoid using those numbers.

I personally believe that you can marginally increase your odds of winning a lottery prize if you choose hot numbers for your pick and avoid using cold numbers. It can’t hurt and giving yourself every possible advantage can only help in my opinion. So why not choose hot numbers.

You can usually find hot numbers on the official website of your specific state or national lottery or by “googling” it.

However hot numbers are only ever useful when you combine them with the special wheeling techniques outlined below. On their own they will give you no real advantage.

Jackpot Winners by State

Some states have had more success than others when it comes to winning the jackpot, but the odds of winning the jackpot are the same regardless of where you play. The states near the top of the list have either offered the game for a longer period of time or have a larger number of regular players.
