Lottery tickets are not something you just get and hope to win.
I mean, precisely, yes, it is. But what I mean is you can’t just buy lottery tickets and depend entirely on hope to win, can you? You need to be smart, have a strategy, and play it as well as you can. And, well, then it’s in the hands of luck.
But till it is in your hands, why not do your best?
But what do you have to do for that?
Here are six dos and six donts of lottery tickets that you must know – and follow – if you want to increase your chances of being the winner.
You can thank us later!
Do stick with your numbers!
Let’s say you didn’t win the first time.
Now you are planning to get another one, but you think, ‘what numbers should I go for?’
The answer? Go for the same numbers that you did before!
You may ask why so? The answer to that is, what if this time your number comes up? The winning number won’t keep repeating, and who knows, maybe this time your number will?
Besides, once you chose a combination of numbers, you need to stay consistent!
Do not go for a date!
No, I do not mean a date ‘date.’
What I mean is, if you are asked to select a number, DO NOT limit your options to just 31 numbers!
Think of how many other numbers you have; do you really want to go for your birth date or an anniversary date? Why not go beyond those numbers?
Plus, most people go for a date. Why not be the unique one and go for a different one?
Sure, there is no guarantee that you will win, but at least if you win a prize, there is a high chance you won’t have to share it!
Do come up with a GOOD strategy.
Strategy – a significant part of the lottery ticket game.
What does a good strategy contain? It contains the right type of thinking along with the right types of combinations to boost up your chances for the game.
If you got a strategy, you are good to go.
If not, it is time you come up with one. Trust me; you will need it.
Do not waste your money.
If you have bills to pay, debts to pay, or any other important thing you can spend your money on, do that.
Do not spend your money here if you can do more important things with it.
If you have extra money, then sure, go ahead! BUT only if it is extra money.
If you plan to go against this rule, let it be known that you were warned here before of the big risk you are about to indulge in.
Long story short, before you buy a lottery ticket, think, “can I spend this money somewhere else where I need to?”
No? you are good to go.
Yes? Do that first!
Do not fall into the trap of lottery scammers!
You read that right; many scammers take advantage of people’s desire to win the lottery, and they succeed quite often!
So, you need to be careful when buying a lottery ticket in order to save yourself from being one of the few victims who fall into their trap.
Here are a few tips on how you can avoid it:
- ONLY buy your lottery tickets from authorized lottery retailers – nowhere else. It is not worth the risk!
- You are responsible for checking your winning tickets; no one else will do it for you. Check the lottery results!
- If you did not buy a lottery ticket, you did not win.
- If you did not take part in the second-chance lottery game, then you did not win!
- Remember: you do not need to pay money up-front in order to receive the winning lottery prize.
- You can buy lottery tickets online from this website – it has available lottery tickets from all around the world plus the international lottery results!
Be careful, and be cautious!
Do not miss your lottery win!
The first thing that may come to your mind is, “how and why would I want to do that?”
You would be surprised to know that a lot of people actually do end up missing their lottery win because they do not double-check their numbers.
Yes, it is true! It has happened to people, and it can happen to you.
Yes, it may seem like something silly, but people can make silly mistakes, and this one is more common than you would expect.
So, one of the most important things is to check your numbers, again and again, to ensure if you did win or not. After all, you would not want to make that mistake!
A bonus do and don’t for you!
Uh oh, we are done with the six do’s and donts. Mind if we put in another one?
Do increase your chances with second-chance games.
Are you throwing your ticket away because the numbers didn’t come up in the drawing? Stop right there! Many lotteries offer the second-chance drawings for the tickets that didn’t win. Get that form and fill it out to still have a chance to be the winner!
Don’t buy too many tickets.
It is believed that buying more tickets can increase your chances of winning. While this may be true to an extent, it may not always be wise. So before you do that, make sure you are ready to spend so much money on it without any guarantee that you will even win!
That’s it, folks!
These six dos and donts (with a bonus) can surely help raise your chances of winning.
And if someone’s giving you the chance to increase your probability of winning – why would you not want to take it?
As long as you follow these, you will be good to go!
