Are you going to fail this year? Are you really, really bad at picking winning Powerball numbers? Did you have fun the last time you played Powerball? Did you win anything? If you are anything like me, Powerball is a game of luck.
However, there is something to be said about those of us that get lucky and seem to have an advantage over others. The good news is that if you are willing to look inside yourself to find what it is that puts some power behind the numbers, you will be primed to make gains that will last you a lifetime. Join me as I lay out 10 things about the game that keep me winning the Powerball.
The first lesson is to know when to play. All types of games have a time for everyone to get in the groove with the software. Don’t just get a gaming card from the convenience store, or get your friends to pass them out on the sly, take home a sheet of paper and a pencil. The time in which you should be getting ready to play is up in the air, the time in which you should be worrying about the numbers you are going to be picking. If you are buying your tickets, make sure they are random and unique numbers, and then practice them daily.
The second thing is to play the pokerboya. The second mistake people make is they only play their personal numbers, and then all of a sudden they don’t win. Do not fall into the same trap, win the Powerball by playing the game.
The third lesson is to develop a budget. How much are you prepared to spend. You can’t go out and buy fifty dollar bills just to play Powerball. It doesn’t work like that, you need to be prepared. Set a budget and work within that. It will help you to save more, and in turn you will be able to invest those winnings back into the game to increase your chances of winning.
The fourth lesson is to play when your numbers are different from the machine. If you mark your numbers, and then you change them, your chances of winning the Powerball would be decreased. Because the machine draws numbers based on what came before it, if your markings off the card, the machine would think you are trying to pay attention to the next number, and not to the one you are trying to mark.
The fifth lesson is to treat the Powerball as though it was a business. You can’t take Powerball casually, you have to treat it like a job. Get to know your numbers, they are important, and you have to be graduated when it comes to working out what numbers you need to play to have the best probability of winning. If you don’t have a method of depositing your funds, you really should consider folding your ticket.
The sixth lesson is to go for the big money. In many local lotteries, you are competing not only against the Powerball but also other lotto games, and even sometimes against the box ticket too. Look for the biggest jackpot prize, and go for it. While you are working towards that mega million, instead of playing hundreds of dollars worth of tickets, purchase one hundred. This way, if you happen to win the Powerball, you still win the largest prize, despite the fact that you have spent less than $100 on your tickets.
The seventh lesson is to work on your strategy. The Powerball not only offers odds of winning to match those from “The Lottery Black Book,” it also offers a strategy guide for increasing your odds of winning that Powerball prize. The book can also provide you with instructions on strategic advances you can employ when playing the game not only for Powerball but also in other lottery variations, like Mega Millions.
