5 Tips for Playing Mega Millions Like a Pro

The Top 5 Mega Millions Tips by Lotto Exposed

So you want to win the much desired Mega Millions jackpot. Let me tell you a little secret, you’re not the only one. There are millions of lottery players who play every draw and who put a lot of effort to win this truly spectacular prize. Let me tell you another publicly known secret, so to speak. There are professional lottery players who are already better than you and are way closer to winning the Mega Millions first prize. You should do something about it if you want to win the jackpot. You should play the Mega Millions lottery as a pro.

The Pros Play Their Own Numbers – Avoid The Quick Pick Option

I know that the quick option is a way quicker than spending time actually crafting one number combination yourself. However, I want you to play the Mega Millions as a pro. That’s the only way you can get closer to the jackpot. I kindly advise you to avoid the quick pick option. Sure, you will have the same odds of winning the jackpot from a mathematical standpoint of view, but you will have lower chances in practice. The computer just spits out random numbers in the range of 1 to 75. I’m certain you can do way better than the computer. Put some thought into the numbers. Analyze, research and don’t forget to buy your ticket!

There Are 75 Numbers – Make Sure You Spread Them Out Evenly

The most common mistake lottery players make, in general, is that they are playing birth dates. Time and time again, I’ve pointed out the obvious problem. It’s highly unlikely, it can happen, but the chances of a winning combination consisting of numbers that are in the range of 1 to 31 are close to impossible. Professional lottery players evaluate the viability of their numbers from a balance point of view by adding all numbers. This number in regards to Mega Millions should be around 140. According to the research I did this is quite true. More than 70% of the winning combinations have a sum of roughly 140. It’s fast, it’s simple and you can do it as well. Note, the sum of ONE number combination should be 140, not all numbers on your ticket.

Keep Track of Past Results – It’s Called Statistic for a Reason

And most likely, you’ve had lessons on statistics in school. You don’t have to be an expert in statistics to improve your odds to win Mega Millions. You need a bit of common sense, some web research, a few extra dollars to test the approach and that’s it!

Try to keep track of cold numbers. These are numbers that haven’t come up from God knows when. Keep track of trends. If you somehow manage to notice the trend you’ve almost won the jackpot. Nature has its own way of making puzzles. The lottery is one of them. There’s an order that governs everything. Those numbers that can change the course of your life are not an exception. Pay close attention to your surroundings. Pros never take chances. That hunch that you had. Yeah, that could’ve been it. The best way to minimize the risk is to apply an analytical approach using past results.

Don’t Play All Numbers That End With The Same Digit

It’s not about what you will notice, it’s more about what you’re not going to spot. Allow me to save you some a couple of bucks. Don’t play all even numbers, don’t play all odd numbers and most importantly, don’t play numbers that all end up with the same digit.

It doesn’t happen. It can, but it doesn’t. Why? Nobody cares. It’s more probable that the machine will break, than to have all numbers that end up with the same digit being drawn out. Instead of playing numbers such as this you should use the quick pick option. I know I said earlier that you should avoid the quick pick option, but if you intend to do these things quick pick option is way better.

There are various situations that could fall into this category, but these are the ones that just stick to your strategy. That’s why I urge you do lose that habit and find a different way. Mega Millions will wait for you.

Buy More Than One Ticket – Pros Do it, You Should Too

Isn’t it obvious? But you were buying only one ticket for the Mega Millions, right? Guess what. That’s the wrong approach. With two tickets you have double the chances to win the jackpot than you’d have with one. With 10 tickets, you have ten times bigger chances of winning the Mega Millions jackpot.

It’s not a tip that’s outside the box. It was there all the long, but you didn’t do it. Bear in mind not to break the bank. I know it’s fairly easy to get carried away by the lottery fever that’s becoming an epidemic lately. You are better than then them. You want to be a pro that will one day win the Mega Millions Jackpot.

This could also be called proper money management. By applying a budgeted approach you can’t get into trouble. You are aiming for the jackpot, so you must be able to play each draw. If you go on a spending spree you might as well bankrupt.
