Quick Tips To Help You Win In Lottery Syndicates

Playing in lottery syndicates already gives you much better winning odds than playing individual lottery tickets, but are there other things you could do to get even better odds and win even bigger prizes?

Below are some quick tips to help you get better odds, win more prizes and get bigger payouts!

1. Don’t use calendar dates

A very common strategy when picking lucky numbers is using significant dates, like birthdays or anniversaries, as lucky numbers. But because the number pool for most lotteries can reach up to 60, by using calendar dates you are significantly lowering your winning odds when using on dates.

2. Play four weeks in advance

When you play lottery tickets or shares for more than one week you will be entered into upcoming draws, and effectively get more chances at winning. In a nutshell, playing for four weeks gives you four times better winning odds!

3. Don’t play number patterns

Another common strategy is playing number patterns like all even, all odd, all low or all high numbers. Research has shown that most jackpot winning number combinations have an even spread of all the numbers in the number pool.

4. Start a lottery pool

A lottery pool is a group of friends, family or co-workers who come together and pool their resources to play in the lottery. Start a lottery pool and play in your favourite lottery syndicate to play even more shares that what you could by entering a lottery syndicate by yourself.
