National Lottery: Six ways to improve your chances of winning
When playing the lottery, the majority of players have a strategy they follow to improve their chances of winning. They either stick with the same set of lucky numbers they typically use, or grab a quick pick to randomize the numbers.
Let’s hear what the official National Lottery has to say about improving your chances of winning the Lottery.
Know your lucky numbers, and don’t change them. If you have numbers that mean something to you – perhaps special birthdays of your loved ones – that you want to use on a weekly basis, go for it. But make sure you keep an eye on your tickets, as there would be nothing worse than seeing your winning lottery numbers come up the week you forgot to buy your ticket.
Play numbers over 31. It won’t improve your chances of winning the lottery but if you do win, it will likely increase how much you win as most people play numbers based on special days of the month such as birthdays and anniversaries.
Consider setting up a lottery syndicate with friends or colleagues. By everyone contributing a small amount each week, you can massively multiply your chances of grabbing a jackpot. It is estimated that at least one in seven £1 million lotto prizes have been won by a syndicate.
Although it likely has no mathematical significance, certain numbers do come up more often than others. The top six numbers to pop up since the UK National Lottery launched in 1994 have been 23, 40, 44, 38, 30 and 33. The notoriously unlucky number 13 has been shown to be drawn much less than other numbers in several major international lotteries.
Some believe that the time at which you purchase your lottery ticket is key in whether or not you win your desired jackpot. Statistics show that jackpot winners tend to purchase their tickets on Friday evenings, so don’t forget to get your ticket before you head to the pub after work!
Move to Romford, Dumfries or Birmingham. Romford in Essex boasts the most ‘significant’ lottery winners per 1,000 people in the UK. Dumfries in Scotland has the most lottery millionaires per 1,000 people of anywhere in Britain and Birmingham has the most overall number of lottery millionaires for any post code in the country.
