If you’re lucky enough to be a member of one of LottoSpring’s syndicate groups, you’ll already be aware that your lottery ticket numbers are chosen for you in advance. We take this step for some very simple reasons:
1) To give you the best chance of winning
Our system automatically picks as many different number combinations as possible to give every member of the syndicate a better chance of winning.
2) To avoid duplication
If all 97 members of the syndicate were to choose individual ticket numbers, there is the strong possibility that there would be a duplication of number combinations. This would end up reducing the syndicates’ chances of winning.
3) To save you time
As a member of our ProSpring VIP subscription, you’re entered in up to 1036 draws each month. As you can imagine, choosing the individual numbers of each of those tickets would be rather time consuming…
4) To make it fair
Each syndicate member has a percentage share in every lottery ticket owned by the syndicate. If we were to allow individual members to choose their own numbers, they would essentially be picking the numbers on behalf of the whole syndicate.
You CAN Pick Your Own Numbers With Single Tickets
At LottoSpring, we understand that some players like to play with a specific set of numbers. That’s why we also give you an option of purchasing individual tickets for our draws each week!
Having an individual ticket works in the same way as any other lottery ticket. You get to pick whichever numbers you wish and — most importantly — get to keep any winnings all to yourself!
Winning the lottery is a game of luck, but there are a small number of ways you can help tilt the odds in your favour.
Pick Numbers Over 31
Most casual lottery players pick their numbers based on special dates such as anniversaries and birthdays. The only problem with this approach is that the maximum number of days in a month (31) often doesn’t correlate with the number of balls in most lottery draws.
Statistics have shown that picking numbers over 31 increases your chances of winning more money. This isn’t because you’re more likely to win but because you’re less likely to have to split the money with other winners.
Pick Certain Numbers
The lottery may be a game of chance, but data collected by the National Lottery in the UK has shown that picking certain numbers might increase your chances of winning.
Why? Well since the National Lottery’s launch in 1994, the numbers 23, 30, 33, 38 40 and 44 have been drawn out more times than the rest.
To put it into some context, the number 13 was a winning number 200 times over a 21-year period. Over the same length of time, the number 23 appeared 282 times.
Stick to the Best Performing Ticket
Analyst Richard Lloyd recently crunched together data from the UK’s National Lottery and found that a ticket containing the numbers 03 06 13 23 27 49 was the most profitable over the last 21 years.
If players had picked those numbers continually since the lottery’s inception in the mid-90s, they’d be richer to the tune of €2.25 million.
Buy From a Syndicate
One in every three jackpot winners are part of a syndicate group. This is when a group of players pool their money together to buy tickets, therefore increasing their chances of winning.
If you don’t have a close group of friends or family to play with, you should consider buying a ticket through Lotto Spring’s syndicate system. Our friendly online community will make you feel part of the fun in next to no time.
We’ve all been out shopping and forgotten to buy our lottery ticket. In the past, you had to cross everything in the hope of your numbers not appearing.
Nowadays, however, you can just pop online and purchase a ticket whenever you want. In fact, most lottery systems allow you to set up a weekly payment system so that you don’t even have to worry about picking your numbers.
Using this approach helps to guarantee that you never miss a draw. After all, the more times you play the lottery, the greater chance you have of winning.
