How Do You Play Lottery Numbers?

Playing lottery numbers begins with choosing your lotto draw game, then choosing the numbers you will play according to the specific rules of that game. Most multi-state lotto games require that you pick 5 regular numbers within a certain range – from 1 to 69, 1 to 70, or 1 to 47, for instance – plus a bonus number, which must be picked from a smaller range of numbers – 1 to 25 or 1 to 27, for example.

Picking your numbers can be done by computer, a random lotto number generator, or you can choose them yourself. Some people who pick their own numbers choose to play meaningful dates, such as birthdays or anniversaries. Others use strategies, like combining even and odd numbers, high and low ones, or some version of their personal lucky number combinations. Another favorite is looking to previous drawings to see which numbers come up more or less frequently than others.

Once your numbers are chosen, you pay your fee to play those numbers and receive a lottery ticket as proof of your entry. Then, you wait for the drawing for your lotto game to happen. Once the winning lotto numbers are drawn, you need to compare the numbers on your ticket to see if you have matched any or all the winning numbers. Matching all regular numbers plus the bonus number means a jackpot win. Partial matches can mean you have won a smaller prize.

Finally, it is important to note that you must be, by law, age 18 or older to play any lottery games. Since prizes cannot be claimed by anyone who does not meet that age requirement, disregarding that rule could be the source of a very large disappointment should your numbers come up in a drawing. Also, as tempting as the dream of hitting it big with a jackpot win can be, it is also very important to play responsibly. Lotto is a game of chance, not an investment. It is essential to keep in mind that winning is never a sure thing, and you should never bet more on any game of chance than you can comfortably afford to lose.

How Many Combinations of Numbers are there in the Lottery?

The exact answer to that question depends upon the specific lotto draw game you play. For instance, in lotto games that require players to choose 5 numbers between 1 and 69 plus a bonus number between 1 and 26, there are 292,201,338 possible combinations, according to Business Insider. While the exact number of combinations changes to some degree based on the range of numbers players choose from in different lotto games, you can rest assured that there are hundreds of millions of possible number combinations in play for each lotto draw game available for play today.

How Smart Picker Can Help

Smart Picker is based on the concept that choosing hot numbers and/or overdue numbers can increase your odds of picking a winning number combination, or better yet, picking a major lotto jackpot. Hot numbers are the lotto numbers that have been drawn most often over a period of time – the last 50 drawings, for instance -- which may mean they have a higher probability of coming up in the next drawing than numbers that have been drawn less frequently. Overdue numbers are numbers that have not been drawn over a period of time, which may mean they are overdue for an appearance as a lotto winning number.

Smart Picker offers a list of number combinations based on:

  • The top 6 hot numbers
  • The top 3 hot bonus numbers
  • The top 6 overdue numbers
  • The top 3 overdue numbers

Of course, using Smart Picker cannot guarantee that your chosen number combos will be the lotto winning numbers. However, putting a strategy in play that uses numbers that may have a greater probability of coming up makes sense – and just might increase your odds of winning. Everyone has their own strategy; just remember to have fun while doing it.
