How to win the lottery? Well if I really knew the answer to that question then I would be sipping a glass of champagne, sunning myself in some exotic location, rather than writing this article! However if your desire is to win the lottery then maybe I can give you a few helpful tips to make the chances of you winning the lottery a little more feasible.
The most likely key to winning the lottery is to join a lottery syndicate, this lotto syndicate could include a group of friends, family or work colleagues. The benefits of a syndicate are that there is an increased amount of tickets being purchased and also on a regular basis, this in turn increases the likelihood of a win quite substantially. This fact is backed up statistically as one in four lottery wins is achieved by lottery syndicates, it is therefore a very attractive proposition to put forward to your prospective lottery syndicate members.
If you have a feeling that you are buying lottery tickets each week and you have little or no chance of winning then it might be worth visiting the many lottery software providers that can be found online at the moment. The Lotto software on offer ranges from the ridiculous to the sublime, and some provide such technically advanced software to do what is effectively pulling a few numbers out of a hat, that you have to ask yourself should I start a degree course now just so that I can understand the instructions. The many types of software available produce any number of the following; complicated reports, databases, statistics, graphs, filters and previous results analysis yet all ultimately offer the same information – that of the most likely winning numbers.
As with all industries there will always be a way for the opportunist to try to try to earn money fraudulently, and lottery scams are just an unwanted side effect of the popularity of lotteries worldwide. The types of lottery scams that have been reported range from phishing emails received asking for lottery players to verify their personal information, fake websites and letters or emails sent informing an individual of a fake lottery win.
What are the odds of you winning the lottery? Well statistically (and apologies for being the bearer of bad news) the lottery odds are not great, in fact it is probably true to say that if you purchase one ticket each week then the lottery statistics are really not in your favour at all and that you might have to wait 1,500,000 years (odds of 1 in 13,983,816) for the possibility of a National Lottery UK Lotto jackpot win – and even then you couldn’t guarantee it!
What ever lottery you buy a ticket for, whether it is the EuroMillions or the National Lottery or an alternative somewhere else in the world, the most exciting part of it is the lottery draw, all that anticipation, hoping beyond hope that you have finally managed to buy that all important winning ticket. The excitement building to a crescendo and then if you are unlucky the ultimate anti-climax of not winning this time, or if you are lucky the elation and thrill at the prospect of collecting your massive £10 win!
The UK National lottery ticket winnings are paid tax free and in a lump sum, however as the corporate saying goes ‘you have to be in it to win it’, and to be in with that chance of winning you really do need to purchase a lottery ticket first. Since its inception the National Lottery has had a whole army of retailers who supply lottery tickets to the eager public, the advent of the internet generation has made the purchasing of lottery tickets even easier with opportunities to purchase online by various methods such as individually online as required by debit or credit card or even by a regular standing order payment.
