The best way to explain how to do it is with an example. Let’s say that you are a regular Powerball player. Let’s also say that you live in Indiana. Indiana offers a game called Hoosier Lotto. Hoosier Lotto is a 6/48 game and the odds of winning are approximately 1-in-12.3-million. We all know the Powerball odds, Right? Powerball is 1-in-195-million.
Now, let’s say that you quit playing Powerball and spend the exact same money playing Hoosier Lotto instead. What would that do to your odds of winning? You are actually 15.8 times more likely to win the Hoosier Lotto jackpot than you are the Powerball jackpot, with the same amount of money spent, based on the odds of each game. That means, by switching games, you increased your odds of winning the jackpot by 1580%.
1580% – That’s HUGE! If you lived in the state of Indiana and played Powerball instead of Hoosier Lotto for years, you would have blown so much money on an impossible dream. If you played Hoosier Lotto instead, you might have already been a millionaire. That same logic applies to no matter where you live, if you have been playing the wrong lottery game.
Winning the Hoosier Lotto jackpot would be a life-changer. The Hoosier Lotto jackpots reach into the millions, sometimes tens of millions of dollars. Winning that would make you happy, wouldn’t it?
The strategy that applies to the Hoosier Lotto in Indiana also applies to other lotteries across the U.S. Here are just a few examples of how much you would increase your odds of winning if you only just replace your Powerball purchases with the following games:
• The Pick in Arizona: 2785% increase in odds
• Illinois Lotto: 1950% increase in odds
• Colorado Lotto: 3714% increase in odds
• Kansas Hot Lotto Sizzler: 1773% increase in odds
• Pick 6 lotto in New Jersey: 1393% increase in odds
• Megabucks in Oregon: 3250% increase in odds.
The same strategy could be applied to other lotteries, no matter the country that you live.
Take Canada, for example. The biggest jackpot game in Canada is Lotto Max, with jackpots ranging from $10 to $50 million. Now, the Lotto Max game is different, in that it costs $5 to play. For $5, you get three lines. The odds of winning the jackpot, per $5 play, are approximately 1-in-28.6-million.
Let’s say you live in Ontario, Canada. In Ontario, a 50 cent game called Ontario 49 is offered. It offers a million dollar jackpot and the odds of winning are approximately 1-in-14-million. So, then, for the $5 you spend on one Lotto Max ticket, you could buy ten Ontario 49 tickets. With 10 Ontario 49 tickets, your odds of winning the jackpot would be approximately 1-in-1.4-million. That would increase your odds of winning, over Lotto Max, by 2042%.
But you might be thinking that the $1 million prize that Ontario 49 offers isn’t big enough to really be a life changer. If that’s the case, even playing Lotto 6/49 is better. Lotto 649 offers jackpots of $3 million plus, often reaching into the tens of millions of dollars. The game costs $2 to play and the odds of winning the jackpot are approximately 1-in-14-million. So for every $5 Lotto Max ticket you buy, you could buy 2.5 Lotto 6/49 tickets. That means that for every $5 spent on Lotto 6/49, your odds of winning the jackpot would be approximately 1-in-5.6-million. That’s still an increase in odds of 510%.
We can use the same reasoning whichever country you live in. For example, if you live in the UK and play EuroMillions, you could substitute that game for Lotto Plus 5, which costs half as much to play, and you would increase your odds of winning the jackpot by 1671%
Now you understand that just changing the way you play the lotto can increase your odds of winning by 1000% or more. So stop playing big jackpot games like Powerball, Mega Millions, EuroMillions, and Lotto Max. Pick a better game, and you will increase your odds of winning by more than 1000%.
