Below I have listed 12 lottery strategies that will help you come out a winner.

## Number 1

Always be random, so do not draw patterns on the lottery ticket. If you play patterns such as all the numbers down one side of the ticket for example, you are only cheating yourself and putting yourself at a disadvantage.

## Number 2

Always be random, so do not draw zigzags on the ticket. Simply pick the numbers you want to play and mark them on the ticket. It is as simple as that.

## Number 3

Always be random, so do not draw circles, shapes, and so on. The numbers are drawn in a random fashion, so pick the numbers randomly as well.

## Number 4

Do not pick numbers that have already won. Just because those numbers won in the past does not mean they will win again. The chances of these numbers coming up again are slim at best. If you do not know which numbers to pick, why not use a lottery syndicate.

## Number 5

Using birthdates is useless. Not to mention that they stop at 31. Most people do not even realize this right away.

## Number 6

Using repeating numbers is useless. The numbers are drawn in a random fashion, so pick the numbers randomly as well.

## Number 7

Using consecutive numbers is useless. The numbers are drawn in a random fashion, so pick the numbers randomly as well. Here is a simple question for you: Have you ever seen consecutive numbers in a winning lottery result? There’s no arguing that it could happen, but the chances of it happening are astronomical.

## Number 8

Using all even numbers is useless. The numbers are drawn in a random fashion, so pick the numbers randomly as well. Not to mention that this will limit you when choosing lottery numbers.

## Number 9

Using all odd numbers is useless. The numbers are drawn in a random fashion, so pick the numbers randomly as well. Not to mention that this will limit you when choosing lottery numbers.

## Number 10

If you pick 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, then you are not picking the winning numbers in a random fashion. These are consecutive numbers and the odds of them winning are extremely low.

## Number 11

If you pick 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, then you are not picking the winning lottery numbers in a random fashion. These are also consecutive numbers and the odds of them winning are extremely low.

## Number 12

If you pick 7, 17, 27, 37, 47, then you are not picking the winning lottery numbers in a random fashion. All of these numbers have 7 in them. They could win, but the chances of it happening are astronomical.

In conclusion you are well advised to choose lottery numbers using a mix of odd and even numbers. Also remember to use the range of numbers e.g. 1 to 49 and be as random as possible. The numbers are drawn in a random fashion, so pick the numbers randomly as well.
