3 Tips to Help You Choose a Winning Powerball Ticket
We have all heard that it is impossible to guess the lottery numbers on purpose. However, here are three techniques that you can use to improve your chances.
1. Pick numbers above 31
According to a research by CNB, from the set of 69 Powerball numbers people tend to more frequently pick numbers that are between 1 and 31. This is because there are a lot of people playing with birthday numbers and there are only 12 months in the year and up to 31 days in each month. This approach limits your chances to only half the numbers as well as increases the number of people you will split the jackpot with.
2. Don’t use quick pick
All lottery providers offer the “Quick Pick” features which let’s the computer pick your numbers for you. But picking random numbers in any lotto game is useless.
To increase your chances of winning the Powerball you should use numbers that a more likely to come up in a draw. Those are the so called “hot numbers”. In addition, avoid using “cold numbers” which are numbers that have come up least often.

3. Play consistently
Participating in every draw will significantly increase your chances of winning. Almost all online lottery providers offer the so called “Subscription” feature which automatically enters you in every draw of Powerball.
