### Five Secrets To Winning The Lottery: How To Pick Megamillions Numbers

How To Win The Lottery Mega Millions :

When it comes to picking Megamillions numbers, you need some lottery tips. Here are four secrets to winning the lottery that you can apply to choosing the numbers that will get you your win.

Lottery numbers are obviously drawn randomly. But even random drawings can product patterns that can be tracked and used to your advantage. Here are some ways to do that.

1. In Megamillions, players choose five numbers from array of 1 to 56 and one number, the Gold Mega Ball, from an array of 1 to 46. The next five secrets will apply to the first set of five numbers. Choosing the Gold Ball requires a different strategy. If you use a balanced wheel to pick the Gold Ball, be sure you use one for pick-5 games. The other wheels won't work.

2. When you select your Mega Millions Lotto numbers, choose a relatively even mix of odd and even numbers. All odd numbers or all even numbers are rarely drawn. It happens less than 3 percent of the time. The best mix is three odd to two even or two odd to three even. One of these two patterns will occur in 68 percent of the drawings.

3. Winning numbers are usually spread across the entire number field. If we take the 56-number array in Megamillions and cut it in half, you have the numbers from 1 to 28 and the ones from 29 to 56. All high numbers or all low numbers are rarely drawn. So the best mix is the same 3/2 or 2/3 ratio that you use for odd to even numbers. Have three high numbers and two low, or two high and three low.

4. If you look at a list of past Mega Millions winning combinations, you'll notice that more often than not, one or more of the sets of tens is not represented. For example, in the combination 4-24-33-47-52, there are no 10's. Tracking and studying the sets of tens can help you decide which set of ten to omit when you play and which to play more often.

5. After you choose the five numbers you want to play, add them together and make sure that the sum of these five numbers adds up to between 106 and 179. Sums that fall in that range account for over 70 percent of all lottery jackpots won.

Obviously, these strategies still require some finesse to use, and they are just a few of the lottery winning formulas available. The best thing to do if you want to consistently pick winning Megamillions numbers is to purchase a lottery book that will teach you proven secrets to winning the lottery.
