Winning the Mega Millions Lottery: Luck or Science?

Do you believe in luck? Perhaps you do, perhaps you don’t. Some people don’t talk about ‘luck’ but believe firmly in the power of visualization and positive thinking. Then there’s another group of people, and they believe that whatever you want in life, there’s a practical way to make it happen. They apply that same logic when it comes to winning the Mega Millions lottery. If you want to win the lottery, there are certain things you can do to win a jackpot, guaranteed. So, is there something to this? Read on to find out how to guarantee winning big.

Wheeling and Dealing

‘Wheeling’ is one strategy some believe is the only way to approach the lottery. Basically, what it entails is selecting sets of numbers in all possible combinations from the given range. For example, if the range of numbers you can select from is from 1 to 49, and you need to correctly match 6 numbers, you need to select batches of 6 that cover all possible combinations within that range. In this instance, you would need to buy 14 million tickets, as there are a possible 14 million combinations in that number range.

Whole Lot of Lotto Tickets

14 million tickets are a lot. Realistically, most people won’t have the capital to invest in this amount of lottery tickets, even though they would be guaranteed to win by covering all possibilities. To overcome this obstacle, some people have formed large syndicates – by pooling their money together and investing in tickets on masse, they’re able to purchase a greater number of tickets. The downside, of course, is that the more people who belong to your syndicate, the more people you’ll need to share your winnings with.

Feel the Heat!

If you don’t have money to invest in a syndicate, or you’re simply more of a ‘lone ranger’, there are other ways of approaching the lotto. Some people swear by tracking hot and cold numbers. Hot numbers are ones that have been selected frequently in recent draws, and cold numbers are ones that have gone unselected for quite some time. Players who track trends swear by the motto, ‘the trend is your friend’.

Whether you believe in positive thinking, or the scientific approach, the first step to winning is the same: buy that lottery ticket.
