So far I have discussed a variety of number picking strategies, including Number Tracking, Lottery Pools and Wheeling. Today, I will be discussing a few of the other strategies, including Odd/Even analysis, Pairs/Doubles analysis, Ink analysis, Pick-3 and Pick-4 positions, Sector analysis, computer software and ink analysis.
Odd/Even and Pairs/Doubles Analysis
With Odd/Even analysis, you determine how often odd or even numbers have been pulled in the past, and use that as a guideline for what numbers will get picked in the future. For example, if even numbers get picked 60% of the time, and odd numbers 40% of the time, you might decide to play more even numbers than odds. With Pairs/Doubles analysis, you use the same approach to determine how frequently certain numbers appear together on winning tickets. For more information on tracking numbers, read this article that I wrote.
Every lotto ball has ink covering it to mark the number of that ball. Ink analysis works under the theory that the more paint or ink that is on the ball, the more likely it is to get pulled. That’s because if a ball has more ink than another ball, it’s surface is more slippery and it is a heavier. Therefore, it is more likely to get pulled by the hopper. Under this theory, the number 4 is less likely to get pulled than the number 46. Statistical research has shown that this theory doesn’t really hold up. But some people still utilize this number picking strategy. I personally believe that the statistical analysis type of strategies are more useful.
Pick-3 and Pick-4 Positions
This strategy is used for Pick-3 and Pick-4 lottery games. What you do is analyze how frequently specific numbers appear in each position. For example, you might analyze how often the number 9 appears in each position (1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th) and use that as a predictor of what is likely to get pulled in what position.
With this strategy, you track how often numbers in each range gets picked. For example, you might group the numbers into low sector (1-17), midrange (18-34) and high range (35 and higher) and track their frequency. Again, you can use this information to help you determine which numbers may be more likely to get picked in future draws.
If you want to do more in-depth analysis and tracking of winning numbers, you might invest in a computer software program designed specifically for Lotto and Lottery. With these programs, you can do in-depth statistical analysis using techniques such as bell curves and algorithms.
Whatever number picking strategy you use, or even if you don’t use any strategy at all, remember that in reality all lotto and lottery draws are completely random. I leave it up to you to decide if using a number picking strategy can give you a winning edge, and if it’s worth your time and effort. Either way, have fun while you play and don’t get discouraged!
Don’t forget that there are a wide variety of paid and free lotto games that you can play, including right here at RewadIt, so you can test out different strategies and see if any of them give you an edge. Good luck!!
