1. Play Every Draw
The Powerball has drawings multiple days per week, and you can check that out with this drawing info. This means that if you play the same numbers or play the same game, you can increase your chances of winning just by taking part in more draws.
What is more likely to happen? Do you win from the one time you participate in a drawing or take part in as many as possible?
2. Buy More Tickets
You have the option of buying more tickets for every drawing, so instead of buying one ticket, you can buy two, or even three. The more tickets you buy, obviously the more your chances of having the right numbers go up because you have more combinations at your disposal.
Of course, be careful about how much money you spend on tickets but if you can afford to lose it, this is no doubt a way to increase your chances.
3. Join a Pool
A lot of people like to take part in a lottery pool and it does have a lot of positive benefits that go along with it. Yes, you are likely going to have to split the prize money but are you really going to care when it is hundreds of millions of dollars going around?
Joining a lottery pool either increases the number of tickets you can win on during a drawing, or it can reduce the cost of investment for you to play significantly.
4. Look at Past Numbers
If you want to have a little bit of strategy in your game, pay attention to past numbers that have been drawn. Logically, the odds of those numbers coming out exactly the same are more astronomical than winning the lottery itself.
So, think of it as a guide for the numbers that you should not play in an upcoming drawing.
5. Play the Same Numbers
Finally, a way you can increase your odds in the Powerball drawing is to play the same number. If you think about it, despite the odds of actually winning being astronomical, one would think that a certain combination of numbers has to come out eventually, right?
The only negative to this is if those numbers come out on a day that you forget to play the drawing, you might not forgive yourself. Proceed with this tip with caution.
Become a Powerball Winner
Truthfully, you never know if you will become a Powerball winner unless you buy a ticket and play. Just remember to have fun with it, and if you want to implement some strategy, follow these tips.
